Epic Mickey 2 Revealed By Accident, Has A Few Surprises In Store

This may be a case of either good news or bad news for some gamers, but Disney has accidently revealed that Epic Mickey 2 is indeed a reality instead of being a mere figment of our imagination.  While we still haven’t received official word from Disney Interactive pertaining to Epic Mickey 2, someone at Disney HQ accidentally sent a newsletter message confirming as much – complete with game details and when we can expect it.

The World Of TRON Returns To Kingdom Hearts

Despite being a Kingdom Hearts fan I haven’t been paying too much to Kingdom Hearts 3D. With my current portable action destined to be on the PlayStation Vita fulltime I had kind of pushed KH3D aside partly because it seemed to be a bit of a rehash and because the KH series has gotten somewhat nonsensical as of late. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy the general concept of Kingdom Hearts but the series has somewhat become too big for its own good and honestly, I think most gamers just want a legit version of Kingdom Hearts 3 instead of prequels. 

Disney Announces A Kinect Game That May Not Be That Bad

2011 hasn’t been the best year for the Kinect in the software department outside of Dance Central 2 but we could see 2012 become the year of the Kinect. I’m not saying as much due to thinking Kinect Star Wars will turn into a gem of a game but instead I believe as such due to the reveal of Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure, the latest Microsoft and Disney Kinect endeavor.

[Updated] Brink Developer Working On Major Franchise, Possibly A Marvel Video Game (The Avengers)

Developer Splash Damage is following up the less than critically acclaimed FPS Brink with a new project that could turn the company around.  Most of us know that while it held incredible potential Brink just was kind of meh at the end of the day.  Nice art design aside, the issues of Brink laid in how the game played which really was all over the place and despite not being an obvious CoD clone the game just wasn’t good enough to keep the interest of gamers.  But where Brink failed, perhaps Splash Damage can succeed with a possible game based on The Avengers.

Disney Rumored To Buy Out UTV

Since it’s often incredibly easy to buy companies that are in the process of failing, rumor has it that Disney will purchase UTV, the parent company of video game publisher/developer Ignition games.

Disney Universe Premier Trailer Hits, Looks Like LBP

Most of us thought that Disney Interactive were really downsizing on the amount of games they developed seeing as how they fired nearly half of their core workforce.

New Disney Mash-Up Game Surfaces Dubbed Disney Universe

At this point I think most of us really don’t care about what Disney Interactive has to offer us.  After firing a good chunk of their staff and closing Propaganda Games, Disney Interactive really didn’t have much to appeal to core gamers since their newfound focus was now set on entering the casual games/Facebook market.  The news that Split/Second developer Black Rock Studios was working on a new game is certainly promising, but let’s not be too naïve in thinking that game wil

Massive Layoffs Finally Hit Black Rock Studios (Split/Second)

At this point I think we can all rank Disney Interactive as being the worst if not the most misguided video game publisher in recent memory. Sure, the evil empire that is Activision may do some dark stuff like cancelling games that otherwise look good, but Disney Interactive has seemingly redefined the definition of incompetent with the decisions they’ve made this generation.  The latest example of Disney Interactive’s continued downward spiral concerns something I’ve been expecting for a while: layoffs at Black Rock Studios.

Disney Hiring For A New RPG Project. Is Epic Mickey 2 Really Happening?

Out of all the stuff that occurred in the world of video games last year, the drama involving Disney Interactive was by far the most interesting – or at least it was to me.  After gobbling up developers and releasing games that were catered to core gamers who enjoyed triple-A games, Disney Interactive effectively cleared out house in the last few months of 2010.  The new Pirates of the Caribbean game that Disney’s Propaganda Games was developing looked good but it was ultimately cancelled and Propaganda was closed after TRON: Evolution hit the market.  But what was even more

An Epic Mickey spin-off was being prepped for the Nintendo 3DS

Disney Interactive took a gamble of sorts with Disney Epic Mickey for the Wii and based on the news of late it looks like the gamble may not have paid off.  So far Disney Epic Mickey has performed admirable at retail but the game hasn’t gone on to become the multi-million unit seller Disney had hoped it would be so in the eyes of a corporation the game could be viewed as a disappointment.  Besides being a game, Disney Epic Mickey was also meant to relaunch Mickey Mouse to a new audience and possibly spin-off into new movies and other merchandise – all of which is TBA at this point
