Alice: Madness Returns is the much anticipated follow up (by me, anyway) to 2000’s PC/Mac game American McGee’s Alice – the dark and gritty telling of Alice’s post-Looking Glassadventures in what has now become a twisted version of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland. The original game had Alice following an anorexic, pierced Cheshire Cat around a grotesque Wonderland, presumably due to Alice’s inclement insanity, slashing her way through the Red Queen’s guards amongst other familiar faces from Carroll’s universe with a bloody knife, and the sequel delivers more of the same.
So there’s another Mass Effect operation planned for this weekend. As a community Kill 3 mil Banshees, while the squad goal is to survive until a full extraction with on any map against any enemy (read: Geth @ Firebase White) on gold difficultly.
But wait a second. Talk about burying the lead here, there’s one more tidbit that stands out in the operation description:
we are prepared to reinforce your battalion with reserves. The vorcha want in, and as soon as they complete combined-arms training with our technically-skilled personnel, we will let them loose.
How’s that for an easter egg? Get to blastin’
Happy Gaming.[Source: BioWare Blog]
