Ooh, ooh... I SO want this game, but me being the person I am, I want to play the first one, well, first. Shame my only option is pirating it, unless I'm willing to part with 50 because it's 'Rare'. Dunno what to do... I'm not down with all that Piracy shiz. =/

I just have ONE question

at the end of the first Alice, she left the asylum, becoming sane...WHY IS SHE INSANE AGAIN!?!?!?

Someone, anyone, tell me!

You could just view a Let's Play. It's the same thing, minus the frustration of getting it to run on modern machines.

Poor Alice, all that she has to console her is unrelenting fantasy carnage. I would rather play the original first, but I'm not really all that into this game to begin with.

Apparently being uprooted to London at some point in the intervening 11 years between the game destabilized her fragile psyche, also she's revisiting memories of the night her parents died.

Personally I think she just went mad trying for 100% synchronization in Assassins Creed: Brotherhood.

I know, but it looks right up my street, and I like playing things for myself, as opposed to watching someone else play it. That, and I'm about to finish God Of War 3, which means I'm going to be bored for quite a while...

Zeus is a bitch...

As I read it comes down this time to bring back her memory of the night her home burned down with her Parents in it, not so much insanity itself, but still a kind of an unfinished job.

And I am so defenatly gonna play it.

I need to play through the first one, never finished it. Too bad it doesn't run on anything before Windows 2000. I just hope DOS Box can help me. Or they need to rerelease it. But, EA loves money so a rerelase wouldn't shock me. Looks quite a bit different than the first game though. At least the Vorpal Blade stays.

"One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back."

Now comes the same dilemma I have with Deus Ex. Do I get a console version or stick with the PC?

...that being said, I'd probably like this game if someone bought it for me, though I wouldn't buy just because there's other games I want.

I am so very looking forward to this game! Here is to hoping they do a re-release or HD Update for the 2000 original.

That's easy. Unless it's a bad console port, and provided you have a decent computer, the PC version is always better. Reasons : Mods, Mouse + Keyboard, Better graphics.

OT: This is looking very nice. I may have to preorder, which I almost never do.

Wow i just realised i can spot the UE3 from probably a single frame of a game : /

We NEED another middleware solution.

>.> you do know the is the squeal to a game from 10 years ago right? and the first one was just as dark if not worse. so that rant is kinda 10 years to late, and at this point if you know of Mcgee's Alice, this is what your expecting, not happy,smiley sunshine, friendship hour

and on a more OT note:
do want this, just hope it doesn't suck

I realized that like right after I hit "post." And actually, I think that style is cool, I just think that Alice in Wonderland has so much more potential to fuck with your preconceptions about... well everything. That's the whole theme of the story -- not just the random, but the deliberately, methodically, perfectly insane. It was the same problem I had with the new movie. Yeah, there were the wacky elements, but overall the story, character motivations, and arcs just too... sensible. I respected how it left the theme of independent thought and embracing individuality intact, but I was disappointed....

What was I saying? Oh. Yeah, the game'll probably be good.
