I disagree. I think the game will be a dissapointment and that it won't sell that well. I've been hyped by the early artwork and then slapped in the face by the terrible screenshots.

You mean early screenshots. They already said they weren't working on the graphics yet and they didn't have the style panned out yet. PLus Warren Spector said that some of the concept shots will appear in the game.

It won't be a disappointment because this game has good funding and has Warren Spector making it who is a respected dev...

Why don't you wait before you judge?

Like you're doing you mean? ;)


Do you really think I have to worry about this game's quality considering who they've hired and what they're doing with it? And they've only shown early screens of a single level. Saying "lol it'll suck" this early is pretty stupid. Of course I'm not saying it can't be disappointing but I really doubt they'll allow to it to be.

Flow didn't say 'lol it'll suck', he said he thinks it'll be a disappointment, and that the screenshots were terrible following on from that fantastic artwork. I mean, he based his view on something marginally more tangible than 'but Warren Spector is working on it' or 'but the devs said it will look better', before coming to the view that 'this game is more important than any other game this year'. Waiting a bit before you judge it I see... talk about hypocrisy~

I have a question... is there any vids of the game yet?

I'm telling him to wait for the game to improve before claiming it'll be a disappointment, it'll sell badly (which probably stems from his disappointment), etc. I'm not saying it'll be mindblowingly great. I'm not saying it'll be as bad as he thinks either. I'm just telling him to wait a bit. They haven't even shown a trailer yet.




Epic Mickey is not goign to be one of the better titles nor one the most important titles of 2010. Hopefully it ends up beign a good titles but there are WAY too many other titles that blow it out of the water both in importance and in quality. You are putting way to much faith in Epic Mickey tbh. I hope this does end up being a good game but it will not even come close to the top 10 games of 2010 mark my words.



 How our favorite systems are just like humans and sometimes have issues finding their special someone...

Xbox 360 wants to KinectPS3 wants to Move!  Why are both systems having such relationship problems?  The reason is they both become so infactuated with desire while watching the Wii as it waggles on by. They simply want what they can't have.

That was an interesting read Soriku.

Epic Mickey certainly has all the ingredients to be huge and seeing as it isn't a throw away kids title I'd expect the game to be very polished when it releases.

Disney love Nintendo because they have the same kind of family values, hence them naming the big N as their choice of videogame partner back in 2006. Now all the Wii needs is for Epic Mickey to be a big success, then Disney to announce that they've told Square to make Kingdom Hearts 3 as a Wii exclusive and then make all the Marvel games Wii exclusive too. Obviously that wont happen (at least not the Marvel bit) but it would certainly shake up the 'hardcore' elitist Wii hating crowd.

I don't think you understand what "important" is. Can you think of another game this year that's redefining one of the biggest IPs in the world?

I don't think Epic Mickey will be the best game this year, not by a longshot but I don't think there's much doubt that, at least in terms of ambition, this is the most important. The games you think will be better are, let me guess...all sequels to already proven IPs.

Great argument you put there. It could be important if a) it is a bit dark and interesting and b) it sells well. After all Mickey Mouse is pretty well known, wouldn't you say?



Yes.

Why did some people think this game is nishe? It's being made from what I can see with a large dev budget, a good team and has mickey mouse in the name - one of the most recogniseable names in history.

There's no reason this shouldn't sell like Mario.

I find it rather weird they made these screenshots public. They advertised the game as an horror game, and the artwork made that clear, but when the screenshots came up it just looked like a kiddy game. Above all things, you know they can't really ruin the image of Disney and will cater to their original fanbase, and dissapointing most of those that hyped Epic Mickey

I mean, just look at the screenshots, early or not, why would they publish that, being obvious that they would incite this kind of reaction?
