Not sure why I feel a little funny to be playing a Mickey Mouse game at 25. I should be married and having kids now in my life.

:/

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

I must say, I was not planning on buying this game. But after reading the wonderful Warren Spector interview that IGN just did I think I'm officially sold.

@SkullMan, what bad about Mickey Mouse? It is just a character, like bugs bunnny, mario, link and donkey kong.

Man's worst enemy is laziness.

Well... I told my wife the other day that I'm looking forward to all the awesome games coming out in the next few months, and she asked which games are coming out, in which I told her "Donkey Kong, Epic Mickey". Not more than 2 seconds passed and she goes "YOU'RE BUYING A MICKEY MOUSE GAME?", and then she burst into laughter. I really had nothing to say, except that it's supposed to be really good, but she just couldn't stop laughing and repeating that a grown man is buying a Mickey Mouse game. Damn her! lol

I need to have a kid so I can have a legitimate excuse to play these kinds of games.

Like oh, the son wanted it, or it's a great bonding experience for us. Not oh yeah, I willing want to be playing a Mickey Mouse game.

Reliving childhood experiences is not an excuse?

Ha, it only works so often and so much. I've been a gamer all my life, and sometimes I like those fun and light hearted games to take a break from heavy and mature stuff like Call of Duty and the likes.

You know, I found that of "Mickey Mouse is for kids" stupid. Mickey Mouse is for everyone, from babys to grandfathers, including teenages, adults and hard core gamers. Mickey mouse is not kind of Barnie, it is more kind of donkeykong, sonic and bug bunny.

There is no differece, a mouse, a bunny, a hedgedog and a monkey, all of them are animals, and all of them are great, it doesn't mater how old you are.

You feel alittle funny about playing a mickey mouse game at 25?.....lol Why? That's pretty immature and being close minded if you ask me. And is Kirby's Epic Yarn too pink, colorful and whimsical for you? C'mon man. What you just said is what alot of young teenagers say when they're going through their typical stupid little phazes, well many of them at least. Yet when they hit college, total nostalgia sets in and they love everything that they used to have when they were a kid, weather it be TMNT toys, disney movies, ghostbusters you name it.

I Love disney(before they turned to crap), and mickey mouse makes me feel like a kid again. I could go on and on. And by the way I'm 26 and I'll never grow up hehe. Cartoons, videogames, disney, what have you are all amazing. I find it a tad' immature that you feel like you're too grown up to play a mickey mouse game....C'mon, be a little more open minded, just because there is no blood, guns and guts doesn't make it any less mature.

Mickey Mouse is the Mario of Disney

i'm 24 and i play mario games, how is that any better? games are nerdy no matter what. modern warfare is no less nerdy than shantae's revenge. in fact, it's probably more nerdy. going thru prestige mode 10 times is actually more nerdy. way more nerdy.

What do you mean by nerdy? The games/franchises you just mentioned are amazing and highly creative. Playing videogames is in no way nerdy to me....Collecting stamps IS nerdy. Videogames are like movies, they're a form of entertainment 'instead' with videogames you're obviously in control and like many movies, these are things that you could never experience in real life ect ect. The closest you'd ever get would be in your dreams.

BUt ya you wanna know what's nerdy? Baseball and Football.lol I can't enjoy that crap even when I'm stoned. Yep, I'm anti-Sports....Yet I love cardio hehe. But i just don't get off on a bunch of retards whacking their sticks around and trying to hit alittle hockey puck into a net, it's extremely boring. But i gotta admit, i used to like the end of the play offs in hockey since it got pretty intense....But the crap depresses me now. As far as entertainment goes, I want something surreal, imaginitive and trippy ect ect.

@WaveBoy
I was just responding to the idea that playing a Mickey game at 25 yrs old is funny. The point is, if that's true, then playing virtually any video game at 25 is funny.

lol well one thing is for sure, a guy watching Twilight is what I consider funny.
Someone playing a Disney based video game to me is considered awesome muhaha. I mean seriously, remember Ducktales on the Nes? That game is a total classic, and so is Chip n' Dale.

And you know, Epic Mickey kind of looks and feels like a spirit successor to Castle and World of Illusion. I LOVED Castle of Illusion back on the Genesis. And while we're on the subject everything disney and Mickey, I'd love to get those Black and White retro Mickey cartoons on DVD. They reak of magic, classic animation, loveeeee it .

For those interested in Disney's Epic Mickey there are a couple of deals going on.

The online shop for Toysrus.com is selling both the Epic Mickey Collector's Edition and
regular edition and includes a $5 discount. Amazon.com is also selling the Collector's Edition
of the game at the same price as Toys r Us.

I realize some people will find it stupid that I feel that way. And that games are for all ages and aren't just for kids...but the older I get the more ridiculous I feel playing them all the time. The past few months my interest in gaming has been waning...I played every night, when COD was big I would play 4,5, some times hours a night...now it's a few nights a week at the most, a few hours here or there.

Not sure if I'm afraid of waking up one day and wondering why I wasted so much time on trivial games, or if I'm growing up and growing out of them. Not sure the idea still interests me, but I can only see the developers pushing the "Mickey is for everyone not just kids" to help sell more units. I want it to be good but I'm not sure.

And Waveboy, yes...Kirby's Epic Yarn does feel a bit removed from me. I want my games to really reflect where I am in life, and even though I grew up playing some Kirby game...I can't say at 25 that Nintendo is aiming this at me, and they shouldn't be...it's a child's game.

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