3DS Code 2578-3122-0744

Am I the only person who thinks of Super Mario Sunshine when i see gameplay of this.

Three new videos, the first gives a good insight into the games art design.


3DS Code 2578-3122-0744

This will probably be a Christmas present, for me. It the sort of game I will feel excited about on Christmas Day and I can imagine it will feel nostalgic, when it comes to opening it. Smilie

I don't want to spoil any of it though, so I won't be watching Gamespot play it.

Kind of bummed that the platforming and fighting elements arn't as good as they can be fom the sound of reviews but the exploring, messing around and getting different reactions from the game world sound like a lot of fun.

Hmmm sounds a lot like Deus Ex Smilie

3DS Code 2578-3122-0744

It's sad to see such a good looking, well thought out game fall down on something as basc as getting the camera right. How things like this are missed in the testing of games is beyond me. Smilie

It still looks like it's turned out to be a good game overall though. Smilie

Yes i feel that it is like sunshine as well. good game but i hate the camera. I also dont like having to aim the wii remote the whole time.

Yea, the camera sucked big time, it ruined the game for me.

3DS Code 2578-3122-0744

I actually didn't have many problems with the camera, totally blown out of proportion imo, sure it was a little clunky but after a while it was second nature and never caused any problems for me.

What was a problem however was the terribly boring gameplay and the constant traveling through the 2D cartoons which seemed to serve no real purpose other than to artificially pad out the games length.
And the constant jabbering from that little fucker who follows you around, god, dude is more annoying than navi.

Are you saying you never found yourself constantly hitting the d-pad to spin the camera. When I was playing the bulk of my inputs were just that, so much so that it bordered on the ridiculous.

It was dull, even for a fan of Disney. WS clearly had no skill in developing this type of game, and what he thought was fun, simply wasn't for the majority of gamers.

3DS Code 2578-3122-0744

I never understood the hate for it, personally.

It's easily one of the best 3rd party games I've played on the system. I kid you not, I enjoyed it more than Super Mario Galaxy 2.

I'm not a big Mickey Mouse fan but I was really considering buying this if I could find it for cheap, but if there is a problem with the camera I know it would irritate me. Smilie

I went into the game thinking I could put up with it, I failed miserably. Thing is, when you have the ability to remove and replace objects, the camera has to be spot on, but it's far from that.

Wait and get it cheap as.

Yeah I was spinning the camera around but I do this in any game with a controllable camera, have to adjust the camera all the time in windwaker or beyond good an evil so...it didn't really seem that annoying.
Double tapping makes it spin around quite fast too and you can target enemies with the C button so camera issues were pretty minor imo.

Exciting!

EM2 Confirmed with Images and Details

http://gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=174069


- sequel is a musical
- original music from Jim Dooley and Mike Himelstein

"I'm such a geek about musicals. I love the co-op and next-gen stuff, but for me, when a character breaks into song, which they do on a regular basis in this game, it's magic." - Warren Spector


- Oswald will be voiced by Frank Welker.

"I couldn't be more pleased. Once you give a character a voice, it takes it to a whole new level. I can't wait for the public to see it and embrace Oswald the way that we have over the years in the archive." - Walt Disney Co. archive director Becky Cline

- play as Oswald in co-op
- once again uses magical paint and thinner
- Oswald has a remote control that has the power to command electricity
- work together to solve puzzles and progress

"It's drop-in, drop-out co-op. You can sit down at any time with a friend who is playing as Mickey, and you can take control of Oswald. If you're playing as a single player, Oswald will be there every second of the game. He's not just a multiplayer character. He's a helper, whether you're playing alone or with a friend or family member

We couldn't ask people to care about this guy they've never heard of or no one has ever seen since 1928 in a Disney film. It was unrealistic to expect people to care in the first game, but now we know they care. We hear about it from players all the time. They really, really got into Oswald, which is hugely gratifying." - Warren Spector


- original sold 1.3 million copies in North America
- choices will affect what happens
- due for release this fall
- songs and music will change based on whether gamers prompt Mickey to be well-mannered or mischievou
- coming to Wii, 360, PS3
- fixing the camera issues from the first game

"We've had a team working on the camera from literally the day we finished the first game. They'll be working on it until the day we ship the second game. (There have been) over 1,000 specific changes made to the camera. Our goal is that you will not have to touch the manual camera controls even once to play through the main story path of this game." - Warren Spector

- Mickey will be returning to the Wasteland
- revisit some areas, but they've been changed by earthquakes and other disasters
- visit new Wasteland realms as well

"There's always been one part of the (Disney) parks that I've always wanted to get into Wasteland. Frontierland has changed so much since it started. There's so much forgotten history there, so Frontierland is going to get a pretty good exploration this time around, plus some other places that we'll keep secret for now." - Warren Spector

“I will tell you I desperately want to do it, and other than that I have no comment at this time. I just think it would be cool for people to see where the story started, so we’ll see. We sold many millions of copies of on just the Wii, and being on the Wii was great. It was a perfect way to reintroduce Mickey as a hero in video games." - Warren Spector

I think I'll be getting the Wii version, since that's Junction Points main focus. Other studios will be bringing it to PS3, Xbox 360 and 3DS. I love the pointer aiming for the paintbrush, as well.

Hey Marzy, since we spoke about this recently, here's a quote for you:

“We’ve certainly thought about it. It”s a really interesting piece of hardware. Unfortunately, we were already too far into development by the time it was announced. So there’s just no way we could get it out by the time Wii U launches. ”I mean, who knows what’s going to happen in the future? But for right now, there are no plans. There is all sorts of fun stuff we could do with that controller, though.”

- Warren Spector speaking to Nintendo Power


So no need to hold out for any Wii U version, and if it does come, it will be much later.
