    Latest trailer for “Alice: Madness Returns” really wants her back in Wonderland

    Last night at the Tokyo Game Show, EA brought their latest games out to play, including a look at My Garden, a title for Nintendo’s 3DS handheld that lets your virtual green thumb shine. But fans of American McGee’s Alice have been clamoring for another look at the game’s sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, and that’s what we’ve got. The trailer is slightly disturbing (well, okay, that’s a given), and it’s really just a small taste of what’s to come, but it also provides good life advice: Stay away from sculpted representations of characters from your dream world. They might turn into tentacles. Video Games | Alice: Madness Returns | TGS 10: Fiery Tentacles Teaser XBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii

    Square Enix releases lengthy trailer for “Final Fantasy XIV”

    Yeah, by now we’re well aware that Final Fantasy XIV is in no way a sequel to Final Fantasy XIII, despite the sequential nature of the titles. The fourteenth(ish) installment of the RPG series is another trip to the MMO realm, and it launches very soon – specifically, September 30 for PC and sometime in March 2011 for PS3. This pre-Tokyo Game Show trailer is a whopping seven minutes and 47 seconds long, but it’s definitely a good look at the new game. In one word? Beautiful. (It’s also charming and full to the brim with the qualities that draw Final Fantasy lovers to the games in the first place. But that’s more than one word.) Watch the trailer below, but make sure you’ve got quite a few minutes to spare – not to mention some mints for the Bad Breath the Malboro midway through is bound to have. Video

    Build A Bear announces new Star Wars Line

    I believe these adorable bears were showcased at the recent Star Wars Celebration Convention. On September 24th, Build A Bear stores will be selling the next bears in the Star Wars series. From September 24-26, consumers can get a free poster with purchase. The bears in the set are Han Solo, Star Wars Bear, Princess Leia, and C3PO. They are so cute! I’ll be picking up the Han Solo and the Princess Leia. I can’t resist! The Star Wars Bear is $22 and the others don’t have a listed price. The first Star Wars bears were: Anakin Skywalker, Clone Trooper Beary, Darth Vader, and a Jedi Knight. The prices on the first series go from $37 – $40. So cute!

    Online Poker for Android Devices Coming Soon, we hope

    Smartphones powered by Android are growing rapidly in popularity, but just like the iPhone they have some serious limitations if you’re looking to play online poker for real money. Poker sites would obviously love for everyone to be playing online Texas Hold Em as much as possible, but there are still many obstacles in the way of playing online poker for cash on your Android phone. The single biggest roadblock with playing poker on Android devices is its relative newness, as online sites simply haven’t yet rolled out safe, secure apps that they’re comfortable offering to their players for Texas Holdem Games real money play. Google is much more open than Apple when it comes to the approval process for Android apps, so most believe that the reason there are currently no apps to play online poker on Android devices is due to development issues instead of the apps not

    PlayStation 2 classics “Ico” and “Shadow of the Colossus” headed to high-def

    According to Kotaku, Japanese game magazine Famitsu recently confirmed that Team ICO are bringing their first two games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, to the PS3, complete with an upgrade to HD. Currently, the release date for the two games (which will likely appear in a compilation à la God of War) is unknown. Or at least Famitsu didn’t know it at press time. But with the Tokyo Game Show happening this week, we might hear more from Sony and Team ICO. Kotaku also noted (in a separate article) that Swedish game retailer Webhallen have posted a picture of the rumored boxart that is a little…well, bland. (That’s it posted to the right.) Are you excited about a re-release of these titles?

    Opinion: Why Games Aren’t Just for Guys

    On twitter, @ladyluck34 sent me a link to an article she found insulting.  I had to check out the CNN article titled, “Five bloody new video games for guys”.  The headline was interesting but I know headlines can typically get blown out for a reaction, so I didn’t pay much attention. The article was written by Scott Steinberg, a respected individual in the world of gaming. He runs his own game consulting firm and is often interviewed on major networks. Imagine my surprise when within the first couple of paragraphs, I realize that the headline had not been sensationalized, but that he honestly meant to write an article about five games that guys would like because, “Sometimes you just want to saw the tentacles off a slavering demon or invite a rampaging zombie to suck on your double-barreled shotgun. ” From there he talks about shooing the wife out and
