Hey, great to hear this. I have a soft spot for Castle of Illusion, despite some pretty obvious flaws. So it's nice to think that they could be getting this one right.

Jealous of you,

Then my job is done. Packing up and taking the next plane back.

I remember when you actually posted impressions here....

I never played Epic Mickey but I hope this turns out good. I'm just a bit scared on how the combat system may evolve (I'm looking at you Monster Tale) and give it a very boring feel... and of course the backtracking.

Heck yeah I can't wait for this game. 3DS is gonna be getting a lot of 2D platforming love this year, with NEW Super Mario Bros. 2, Rayman Origins and Epic Mickey. Bring it on, I say! Bring it on!

I'm epic and Gui knows it.

You are pretty epic...

This game will fill the hole in my heart that the 2.5D Castlevania game left.

Sounds good. I really need to finish the original I guess...

Is the slowness annoying? Mickey looks like he is running through molasses in the demos.

I was wondering if it was just me that noticed that. It does seem kinda slow, but no one else seems to have mentioned it. I thought my eyes were just seeing it...slower...for some reason.

Yeah, it's super, super-slow. Maybe because you have to paint shit and do second-screen stuff while you're playing? I wouldn't mind a super-fast unlockable character. Or just a faster Mickey.

I didn't notice how slow he was while I was playing. I wish I did, I would have said something about it and asked about eventual power-ups.

But look at videos of other 2D Mickey games, like Mickey Mania. He's pretty slow there as well. Maybe it's intentional.

I appreciate how the director of this game is a huge Disney fan and a fan of the original. After Henry Hatsworth and Monster Tale, I have faith in this developer.

Gui, does the fact that you need to pull out the stylus every so often detract from the game's pace?
Posted: 06/08/12, 21:26:42
I kind of touched on that in the impressions, a lot of it is optional. But yes, the pace does suffer a bit from it.

I kept the stylus in my hand at all times as I played, though.

Speed is the only thing I saw wrong with the video at E3. Everything else looked great.
