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 It seems like a good middle-ground, even and especially with the out-of-date models.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.
