Return of Alice trailer 'unofficial,' says American McGee

When you consider the professional level of quality of the trailer, you can see how the mistake could have been made

Back in the old days, when you put a trailer on a game's official website, said trailer would also be deemed official. Turns out that's not the case for the Return of Alice video that I got all giddy over earlier in the week. American McGee, the lead developer on Return of Alice, made this comment on his blog:

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.

While McGee did indeed post a message on his Twitter page stating the trailer was unofficial, the trailer had been on the official site for many hours beforehand. When you consider the professional level of quality of the trailer, you can see how the mistake could have been made. Nevertheless, we apologize to any readers who were misled by our previous Return of Alice story.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
