Teaser trailer for Alice sequel released, game due 2011

According to EA's info site, the game is listed as a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC release

American McGee's Alice

American McGee's Alice

I don't get to play too many PC games--my console roots can't handle the mouse-keyboard setup and my family's computers were often incapable of playing anything more graphically intensive than solitaire--but I'm glad I fired up my Microsoft Sidewinder (Wikipedia) to play American McGee's Alice nine years ago. Between the dark take on a classic story, the better-than-PS1 visuals, and the perfectly pleasant platforming, it became a classic and a mainstay on console gamers' wishlists. We may never get a release for Alice on consoles--though Xbox Live Arcade and PSN would be perfect homes--but we do know a sequel is coming in 2011.

A teaser trailer has popped up online (originally on the official site), showing a different style of animation--this scene, which could just be CG and not game-engine visuals seems to utilize stop-motion puppetry. The story seems to pick up after the events of the original Alice, which itself took place after the events of Lewis Carroll's two books--Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

According to EA's info site, the game is listed as a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC release, and is being created by American McGee's development house, Spicy Horse. We've sent word out to folks at EA to see if we can squeeze some additional information out of them about the game.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
