Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Alice Sequel Teaser Was Fake.

aliceWell here we go folks. Two days ago several websites (mine included) posted a teaser for Alice 2. I wasn’t entirely convinced if was official but it was enough to raise my hopes up. Now American McGee has posted on his website that the teaser is a fake.

Here’s what he said:

“Yesterday, a few sites picked up a video of Alice made by one of our fans and confused it as an official trailer of Alice 2, I wanted to clear up any confusion — as I mentioned in my post it was unofficial, and does not represent any of the final art direction or story elements in Alice 2. We look forward to sharing information on the game in the future.”

The one positive is the last sentence in that post. Let’s get hoping!

American McGee’s Alice Sequel to Hit 2011!!

aliceI had pretty much given up on this but I guess Tim Burton’s upcoming remake of Alice in Wonderland helped greenlight the project.

Today though we were given the first (official looking) teaser for the sequel to the 200o cult hit. Details are still few but we know the game is supposed to hit in 2011 and it looks like it will be based on Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to the original book by Lewis Carroll.

The look is very different with a sort of stop-motion feel to it and we don’t know much about the sound. I really hope Chris Vrenna returns for the soundtrack because Alice’s is still one of my all time favorite. The voice of the Cheshire Cat doesn’t sound the same but I really hope it is because, again, Alice had some of the best voice work ever made in a game.

Anyway enjoy the teaser and cross fingers!

Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Sign Up!!!

700px-Star_Wars_The_Old_Republic_first_logoIt is time my friends!!

BioWare announced the opening of sign ups last night and as can be imagined the site completely crashed.

You need to go here to sign up but right now the process seems to still have a few issues, resetting before you are done signing up. It’s sure to be fixed soon though.

May the Force be with you!

Diablo III New Monk Class Reveal!

ss90-hiresBlizzcon 2009 is going down this weekend but it seems Asia got the jump again. A website revealed (leaked?) the fourth class for Diablo III.

The Monk will follow the Barbarian, Witch Doctor and the Wizard and will feature hand to hand combat. The official announcement came with a trailer like for the Wizard class.

It might be just me but it’s the first time I’m disappointed by a Blizzard trailer… The flow is fine but for some reason the graphics look very old generation. The Wizard trailer was much much much better in my book.

In any case any Diablo III news is good news.

Fallout Online First Concept Art

Project_V13For the little history lesson Fallout was developed by Black Isle Studios and published by Interplay. Black Isle Studio closed and several years later Bethesda Softworks grabbed the rights of the series and developed a sequel, at least in spirit, in Fallout 3.

Interplay though still has the rights for the MMORPG Fallout Online (otherwise known as Project V13). Which they will loose on April 4th 2011. So time is of the essence and they have just released the first art for the game.

Not much too feed on so far but it looks nice.

Alan Wake PC Rests on MicroSoft’s Shoulders

UntitledA few months ago it was announced that the long delayed Alan Wake would only be coming to consoles. Fans of Remedy, whose games like Max Payne had always started on the PC were pretty annoyed and forums started heating up.

In a recent statement though the developer said that they would “love to see a PC version” and that “plans are open” but it apparently falls to MicroSoft to make the decision. Which mean it may not be coming for a little while since MS likes to give it’s 360 some time to grab a few dollars before releasing games in the piracy-prone PC.

In any case we’ll see how it develops and how the console version feels when it finally comes out.

Here’s the full statement:

“It is accurate that we are currently working exclusively on the Xbox 360 version of Alan Wake,” the statement reads. “PC plans are currently open, and therefore it’s safe to say that at least a simultaneous launch with the Xbox version will not happen at this late stage. Remedy has a deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers, ultimately however this decision lies with our publisher.”
