9 Minutes & 30 Seconds of Final Fantasy XIV

July 20, 2010 Leave a comment

 

Above is a video of a user playing FFXIV, we get to see how the character creation works and also some lengthy cinematic sequences mixed in with the introductory gameplay we have all gone through many times before.  Mind you, this is still the alpha version (or so it says on the title screen) so once the final product is released there may be some drastic changes that we may find!

First look at Alice : Madness Returns

July 20, 2010 Leave a comment

 

American McGee’s Alice came out for the PC back on 10/06/2000, set in the world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice takes the Wonderland that we all knew and twisted it into a dark and radically altered world ruled by the Queen of Hearts.

 

Alice : Madness Returns takes place 11 years after the events of American McGee’s Alice.  Just released from an asylum, Alice is still struggling to deal with her “nightmarish hallucinations,” according to the official Alice : Madness Returns website for the game

 

As nightmarish hallucinations continue to haunt her and invade her reality, she seeks to understand her torment in order to recover herself. Her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear and neuroses prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Her relocation to London seems only to add to their number and intensity.

 

In an attempt to find out the truth about her past and hopefully calm her hallucinations down, Alice returns back to Wonderland only to find out that something is amiss in Wonderland and all sorts of evil is going on in the world she once use to know.

 

Alice : Madness Returns is set to release for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 some time next year, if you want to read up more information on the game go check out the official site, or follow the official twitter account @thewhiterabbit.
