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).

The latest issue of Nintendo Power has an article about this game, and after reading it I am more hyped to get this game now. Looking forward to having some coolourful Mickey fun (if there is such a thing )

I want this but DKC returns gets my money first...this will most likely fall to Christmas with Force Unleashed 2.

Send me the best you've got. Send me your strongest machines. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me.

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.

Ohhh Epic Mickey. Golde Eye 007 and Sonic Colors, you three better turn out good!
Since there's obviously nothing to worry about regarding Kirby's Epic Yarn and DKC hehe.
Anyways great Article! I hope for his sake the game turns out great, but based on hands on impressions it's not sounding as great as he's making it out to be, hopefully we're all wrong! Because as of now, the platforming is looking a tad simplistic, especially during the 2D retro Disney levels. But whatever there's just something really magical and whimisical about this game, and I can't get over those awesome classic Disney levels

@NintyFan Woah, that was awesome!

There's ANOTHER article on IGN, that kind of goes into more detail about the story but doesn't really spoil anything. Spector said that "skilled players" will probably finish the game in about 15 hours (although he said his first playthrough took him 25). He also said, however, that you would probably need to play through the game 3 times to collect everything.

@SuperMarioFan96
Here's some quotes...

and the other one is too old to find at this moment, but after reading these quotes again Warren Spector is really full of himself and his game. He should really stop saying this just in case the game isn't good. Then he'd look like an idiot.

OK the game WILL be good, im almost sure of that, 2D platformer with 3D platformer with adventure, a great gameplay, a great history and mickey mouse, these game is gonna be AWESOME!

@ballkirby1 Well, while those quotes are (probably) a little extreme, I don't think he's necessarily "just saying that." Basically he's exagerating. Is he exagerating way too much? Probably. But, he really seems like he's going all out, IMO. The platforming may not be Mario-worthy, the story may not be Pixar-worthy, and it almost definetely won't reach the sales of, say, New Super Mario Bros. Wii. But I think it could have some very good platforming, with a very good story, and become one of the Wii's top selling 3rd party games.

I think that the level design in this game is brilliant and one of the things that's winning me over. Like the footage that NintyFan posted, or that 2D neon level based on "Plutopia." Also, whenever I watch this video, it just gets me insanely excited for Epic Mickey:

Some of the places in there, even if shown for a mere second, just look so amazing.

Yeah I believe the game is going to be great. It is also obvious that Spector is working very hard on the game. I just don't think he should be saying all this. I know he wants people to want this good-looking game, but he shouldn't be claiming that the game is awesome and saying all the things it will do before it is released, in case for some very strange reason the game doesn't follow through, no one will take anything he says seriously.

Yeah, it's never a good idea to hype up a game as much as he is, you want to hype it so that people want it, but don't do it to the extent that they could be easily dissappointed.

I think Spector is so hyped about these game that probably it will not disapoint us, don't you think?
