NintyFan, I read the villians section and it was great! The game is sounding wonderful. Btw, about my Warioware D.I.Y code, I no longer have Warioware D.I.Y. Sorry. I removed my code from the bottom of post.

As an aside from all the Epic Mickey talk (but related), I've been watching Warren Spector's PAX 2010 Keynote speech. Its a very long video (53:25), but man, this guy is smart, funny, and cool imo. I have a VERY hard time believing that Epic Mickey won't be great. Here's a link to the video in case anybody else wants to watch it: http://pax.gamespot.com/video/6275271/?tag=top_stories%3Btitl...

The more I see & hear of Epic Mickey, the more I want to play it. I think it's going to be one of the best Wii games this year; if not the best. And thats saying a lot when you have Goldeneye, a new Donkey Kong, and a new Kirby coming out too!

@DF2506 Thanks for the link! I've found snippets of his speech online, but I couldn't locate the entire thing, much less in video form.

I personally think Epic Mickey is poised to be one of the best third-party games of the year (as to not sound ignorant), the best third-party Wii retail game of the year, and possibly the best third-party Wii retail game ever. I doubt it can replace any of my top three games of 2010, and, coincidentally, ever: BIT.TRIP RUNNER, Cave Story, or Super Mario Galaxy 2, but I'd love for Warren Spector and the good folks over at Junction Point to try to prove me wrong. ;)

No problem. Its quite a good speech. Really enjoyed it and it makes me think even more that Epic Mickey will be awesome.

You know, I like Cave Story and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (never played Bit.Trip.Runner, so I can't comment there), but I wouldn't put either one up for top three of 2010. I'm not really sure what I'd put up on top yet. To me, the best of the best games have not come out yet. Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby, Epic Mickey, & Goldeneye look like they are going to beat out both Cave Story and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (as an aside: as much as I like SMG2, I think I had more fun with New Super Mario Bros. for Wii).

Anyway, saw another video at Gamespot for Epic Mickey, a hands-on demo (its here): http://pax.gamespot.com/video/6275248/?tag=top_stories%3Btitl... . VERY cool. Especially the Mickey Beanstalk level.

I totally understand. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was simply not very novel to some anymore and just another fun entry in the series, but I think enough reviewers gave it 10's and such that I don't feel silly picking it as one of my top games, and even if I did, I'm sure I'd still proclaim its awesomeness. ;)

Cave Story is slightly better than SMG2 for me, and while many will say it's just a great game, there's beauty and nuances to it that I've never seen matched by any other game before. Consider Super Metroid, for instance. Many would say it's one of the greatest games of all time. To me it's just a very good, maybe great game. Cave Story on the other hand, while heavily inspired by it, surpasses it easily in more areas than I care to count. You may not agree obviously, but that's how I see Cave Story.

And here's the other account on which our opinions differ (which I'm completely okay with): the rest of this year's games. Aside from Epic Mickey (duh!), on the whole this year's tail end is looking slightly boring and uninspired. DKC Returns looks to not be quite as good as the amazing NSMB Wii before it (which imo is not as good as Galaxy 2 but better than Galaxy) and too similar to stand on its own, Kirbs has possibly the most wonderful art style known to mankind but so far the gameplay doesn't look up to snuff, and GoldenEye looks like a pale imitation of the orginal, to put it harshly. There's a certain charm to 007 64's graphics, but here it's just How Not to Take Advantage of the Wii's Limited Graphic Capabilities 101. Forgive me for being so blunt, but as far as I'm concerned, aside from (possibly) Epic Mickey, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, Super Scribblenauts, and of course the dazzling BIT.TRIP FATE, well, this year is already in the bag. As StarBoy would say, to each his own. ;)

So I haven't read the actual article in NP, but GoNintendo posted a lot of the information online, practically the only thing they didn't have were the screenshots. Anyway, like pretty much everyone who read the article the game sounds insanely awesome now and I just went from "This game sounds pretty good" to "OH MY GOD THAT SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!!" To those who didn't read the actual article, PLEASE read this:

Did anyone read the part in the article where they collect a film reel in the Lonesome Ghosts level and a pin near the Lonesome Manor and Spector wouldn't say what they were for? I bet the film reel is a bonus movie. It sounds like there's going to be a lot of collectables in this game. I'm no completionist, but being a big Disney fan, I may have to find all of these.

Odnetnin, as you say, to each his own.
SuperMarioFan96, that article is OK, but the Nintendo Power article is much better. The pictures in it look awesome!
pogocoop, ya, I really want it too. Not sure if I'll be able to get it or not. Gotta at least rent it!
NintyFan, I'm hoping that the Film reels are the actual cartoons that those 2D levels are based on! Wouldn't that be so cool?! Though, I think its more likely that the film reels are just collectables you get that allow you to play the 2D levels whenever you want (maybe on the main menu?). Though, it would be great if it was the actual cartoons. Oh and far as the pins go, in a recent video, Spector said the Pins were pretty much just for bragging rights. Sounded like Epic Mickey's verison of achivements/trophies. Still, very neat.

Anyway, I hear that the Tokyo Game Show is next week! We should get some more Epic Mickey footage (maybe news?) then. Here's hoping for a release date (Nintendo Life & Best Buy are saying November, but thats not official yet as far as I know).

I'm not that surprised about the pins. Pins are collected in Walt Disney World for bragging rights too. About the release date, the news on the home page says that it's releasing on Nov. 16. You can find it on the feature where they show the intro part 2 video.

Nov. 16th, nice! And there were a lot of things Spector wouldn't comment on the role of, like Robo-Goofy and Robo-Donald Duck.

Yeah, they were shown a long time ago when the game was first announced. According to Spector, how you interact with them plays a role in Mickey's and Oswald's story. Maybe they might be companions at some point?

I wish he could've talked more about Pete's role, since he'll make a presence in the game as a trouble-maker.

What do you mean nothing new, hulklol? I saw a lot of new things in that trailer, and it was awesome! Color me excited again!

So Nov. 30, in the holiday season, is the final release date? Looks like I was a little misled before, but at least it won't release on the same week as Donkey Kong Country Returns. Now I can definitely get this in Christmas!

Warren Spector sure seems very optimistic about this game. I sure hope it is as good as he says it is. He's been claiming all this stuff about the game like, the platforming can match Mario games, the story will make you cry and will be good as Pixar movies, and after this game Micky games will be as popular as Mario, Zelda, and Halo games. I hope he's right.

@ballkirby1 Woah! I never heard those quotes! I think saying those types of things are a little too optimistic, but I do believe it will be a really great game overall and will be one of the Wii's most successful 3rd party games (not that the bar for that is very high, lol).

Obviously there are a lot of gamers excited for this, but this is also something that could easily become popular with the casual crowd, especially during the Holidays, considering it stars Mickey Mouse.
