Epic Mickey

43 posts in this topic

Okay guys, get in a fucking huddle, Uncle Bill has something to share with ya. That something... is Epic Mickey, an upcoming game for the Wii. Don't give me that look you cynical cunt, let's sit down and talk. There's complimentary biscuits on the coffee table, and coffee, because it's a coffee table.

First of all.

Second of all and more importantly: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/first-ep...details-spilled

Epic Mickey is a tale about the 'forgotten' Disney stars: the rides, the characters, the lesser-known cartoons. When nobody any longer cares, they are cast into a dark void; a forgotten world of broken machines and bitter personalities - a bit like Sid's bedroom in Toy Story, but without the friendly furnishings.

This forgotten world is run by Oswald the Rabbit. He was Disney's first creation, made long before Mickey Mouse, and his jealousy of the newcomer has fermented for years. Now, finally, Oswald is ready for revenge.

He unleashes The Phantom Blot to wipe out Mickey and his cartoon world. The Blot pollutes the Disney universe with sticky black ink that makes colours run and fade (as seen on the Game Informer cover), so it's up to Mickey to restore peace and order. And this is where his tools come in.

Mickey has to draw and scribble his way through levels, mending broken bridges by applying the right colour paint or peering through walls after applying thinner. He can even clear rubble from his path by erasing parts of the world.

Our source told us Epic Mickey is a game about thinking and artwork - laterally considering your environment in order to overcome puzzles.

On top of that is a healthy dose of exploration, plus Mickey will be getting "his first makeover in years". "That's why no one's seen his face yet," our source explained, "But he's far more retro than you've seen him for years."

Serious fucking business.

This was not what I pictured when I heard that Warren Spector was working on a Disney game. Let's cross our fingers, pray to whatever deity's, Lovecraftian or other, and let's hope that the planets of game design will all align for these beautiful boys, etc etc.

I think that Mr. Spector should say "fuck this noise" about a stupid Disney game, and get his ass over to Eidos Montréal to work on Deus Ex 3.

I think you're a bit jaded. Stupid? In theory it sounds like the perfect game for the Wii, in a very interesting setting aswell, with very notable/skilled designers working on it. He had another shot at the Deus Ex franchise with Invisible War, nothing wrong with going at something new.

And I also loved IW2, and I want Deus Ex 3 far more than I want some game about a darker Mickey Mouse for that Nintendo console that I use once every two years.

Yea, asians never make any good games or consoles, true. And there's never been a good disney game, and it was definitely not a platformer, or a couple rather, for the nes.

The good times will roll, most likely, mark my words gentlemen.

No one's saying that. But Asian developers tend to receive much ado over what amounts to little more than shit. And I damn well mean shit. Nintendo for instance may have mattered fifteen years ago, but now they're really quite irrelevant.

Irrelevant when talking about the Nintendo Wii and a game that's exclusively being made for the very same console? A game that might use all of the slightly more unique features of the Wii to its (hopefully) full potential? Okami on steroids, no, not interested? I'm sorry, lets talk about Gears Of War 3 and David Gaiders new hair. Shit, I can't wait to play more instantly forgetable realistic-looking grey bullshit shooters. I can't wait to watch the same world over the shoulder of the same fucking macho prick character with a token sidekick, and did you see the G-man pimpin out DA with Tim motherfucking Curry? He's tapped into some nuclear fucking rogaine that's for sure. Too bad it doesnt grow talent.

Making gameplay out of painting with the Wii controller in a fun and lovely game developed by legends... What was I thinking? And Disney? Shit, It's not like I ever had a childhood. Fantasia? Is that the name of a porno? Fuuuuuhhhck it mayne. Fuuhck it.

Ninety-nine and nine tenths per cent of the games for the Wii are retarded, childish games with little enough value to them. The "decent" stuff is usually novel for a few minutes before it turns stale. Where does this fall? I don't know. But I don't have my hopes up. And that doesn't change the fact that Nintendo produces probably fewer than two or three decent games per year for a massive company. Sony is much better than Nintendo now, which doesn't say much for Nintendo. I'm no fan of the upcoming Gears of War 3 or any of the previous installments in that series or most other modern shooters for that matter, but that doesn't change the fact that most games out of Japan are turds either too focused on being as "avant-garde" or childish* as possible.

*This may not mean that themes are overtly childish. Usually the story or the gameplay are if nothing else.

Same "statistic" can be applied to all games. Plus, childish? There are no mature games, especially not nowdays! I rather have something that is willfully childish than trying too hard pretending to be adult, real talk! You might have a different games palette, fine, but this thread is about a Disney game for the motherfucking Wiihii.

This thread is not about Nintendo, or its place in current pop-culture, or the skill of Japanese developers compared to westerners, no, fuck no, it's about a game called Epic Mickey. Epic! Mickey! Let's have some hype, or perhaps joyful banter about this lovely hobby of ours, if not that, lets keep it to snidey and/or sarcastic one-liners.

This was originally going to be an epic like Half-Life, released exclusively through Steam, and not gayified with Disney shit, but then Disney thought,"Hey, that looks like a cool idea for a game. Why don't we buy out the rights and ruin it like just about everything else we touch?" Not to mention that it's on the Wii with 2x anti-aliasing.

EDIT: Yay! This super happy fun time, it 300 post celebrassion!!

Honestly, how this is any different from Kingdom Hearts?

Warren Spector wrote his master's thesis on cartoons. He loves cartoons. He wants to marry a cartoon. So maybe, just maybe, he enjoys working on it?

No one's saying that.

Actually I could quote Maxx specifically saying that all Asian games are terrible.

Anyways I have mixed feelings about this, I mean it's... well it's fucking Disney. Then again it's Warrent Spector and that is some pretty awesome concept art. I'll just wait until they release some in game shots before I decide on anything.

Kingdom Hearts wasn't horrible, but it consistently failed to cash in on all of its considerable potential, but this looks like a step in the right direction.

I actually quite liked the first one, the second one was just total shit though. How many times can you press triangle before you give up? I'll tell you, for 3 hours until you realize that the game is STILL in the fucking tutorial.

Kingdom Hearts was an action rpg or whatever they choose to call it, this is like a platform adventure, right? I mean, "painting" with the Wiimote as an actual big part of the gameplay... something like that could be fucking good, if it's actually implemented well, unlike in Okami where it was a small gimmick.

I'm feelin 'a bit' of hype atleast.

No, no, Kingdom Hearts was terrible in both concept and execution. Generic x generic x childish = FUUUUUUUUUU

Maxx was either exaggerating slightly (and I mean very slightly) or he was speaking of the modern Asian gaming scene. At any rate, he's correct. As I said in my review for RE5, Capcom is one of the best Japanese/Asian developers, and lately they haven't even been terribly consistent. The whole region is overblown and overrated. There's a reason that many Asians are obsessed with western RTSs - it's because they are hard pressed to show something which displays taste and competence. Western developers receive fair criticisms, but everything out east seems to be a bunch of gold bricking mongoloid refuse.

This game is made by white people though, so why can't we all just get along?!

Even though I think that everything that can be said about Japanese games can be said about Western games, as far as overall quality goes, any day of the motherfucking week. There's nuggets on both sides, of gold and of shit. I think people get agitated by otakus/fanbois in Europe and America rather than Japan itself.

Oh, Most definitely.

I hate Animemos...They really piss me off. Kids who drown themselves in Japanese culture (Or Rather a western Vision of Japanese culture) really annoy me. "Let's make Sephiroth a wolf and then lets make him gay and make erotic fan art and post it on Deviantart...Why?...Cos you don't understand me that's why...I'm gonna listen to Tokio Hotel, Those guys (I Think they're guys anyway) totally get me"
