Alice: Madness Returns (2P Review)

Publisher: Electronic Arts / Developer: Spicy Horse / Platform: PC, PS3, Xbox 360

Kate: Alice: Madness Returns is a surprise sequel to 2000’s American McGee’s Alice, a game praised by critics at the time for wonderful (though now dated) visuals that made up for the average-to-mediocre gameplay. So how does the new installment stack up?

The gameplay has improved, thankfully. American McGee once stated that he wanted to be “the next Walt Disney, only a little more wicked,” but I’d posit that what he actually wants to be is a wicked Shigeru Miyamoto. He doesn’t quite reach Miyamoto’s level of brilliance, but it’s difficult to ignore how much the 3D platforming in Madness Returns owes to games like Super Mario 64, right down to the occasional rides on long, winding slides that containing lines of “coins” for you to try and collect.

The 10 Greatest Characters You’ll Never See As DLC In MvC3

There have already been plenty of lists about who should be added as DLC to the roster of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds. We all know the odds-on favorites: Frank West. Phoenix Wright. Gambit. Venom. But what about the characters we have next to no chance of seeing—not because they were a licensed character (Tremor), or because they’re a character more associated with Disney than Marvel (Aladdin), or because they’re just too ridiculous (Squirrel Girl)—but simply because they’re too obscure (or just too awesome)?

Below are the ten greatest characters you’ll never see as DLC in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, ranked not in order of their greatness, but rather by how unlikely it is that they’d ever be considered for inclusion. Though remember, Deadpool was still considered too obscure back when Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 came out in 2000, so you never know what might happen. Read More
