Dasher, I think we're going to have to agree to disagree, but I will have to correct you on one point: The Phantom Blot isn't just a "plain thief". He's a narcissistic madman who will stop at nothing to prove his power and has made designs to out and out conquer the world several times.

I like the general design. If it were less cartoony, it wouldn't feel quite as Disney, but if it were more, it wouldn't feel as dark. It seems like a good middle-ground, even and especially with the out-of-date models.

The presentation by Warren just makes me want to meet him all the more, get him to sign my Mickey Mouse platinum DVDs. Get an Oswald one to get signed too, just everything. He's great, and bringing up the Toy Story question of "What a toy wants" and helping out bosses... I love him.
I'll love all the Mickey choices (the 20's Scrapper, 30's Hero, modern neutral), but fitting with my favorite cartoons I'll probably be using the Hero the most. Just fits my ideals of a selfless person, and the design of him is on my personal Mickey watch so yeah.
As for Blot, I see what you're saying, but I never loved Blot in the comics. In the Mouse Works cartoons he was... okay. I like what they're doing here much more. It's what you imagine hearing the name Blot.

Fun fact: One of the designers of Mickey Mania was David Jaffe (Twisted Metal, God of War).
I'm really glad Nintendo featured this game at their conference. Despite how "natural" a fit it may seem for the Wii, it doesn't change the fact that it's not a first-party game. It needs that "Nintendo boost."
Though I'm not interested in anything Disney-related, I accidentally saw the trailer with one of the designers of it on G4's E3 2010 show, and I never did know that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit belongs to The Walt Disney Company. It makes me want to show this drawing to you guys.
Epic Mickey reminds me of Captain Rainbow, because they are both about exploring the forgotten (but not very forgotten).

I don't know all the details, but Walt created Oswald, but he created him before he started Disney, while he was working for Universal (I think.) After leaving Universal to start Disney, Walt had to leave Oswald behind, since he created it for Universal, but Universal didn't do anything with Oswald. Recently, quite possibly so they could carry on with this game, Disney bought the rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, so he is now owned by Disney.
nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
