THE NEW EPIC MICKEY GAME MAY JUST KICK ASS
Both of the people who read this blog with any regularity know that video games is the one nerd ship that sailed without me. I don't know what it is but they just bore me to tears, though oddly enough I can watch people playing them for hours. So lacking any real wisdom over gaming I tend to ignore when Zombie Dance Attack Warhound Space Duel 8 is released with the new bonus thrash-attack-electric-voltage-armband. However this new Epic Mickey thing seems awesome. A few weeks ago I brought you some images of the game (check that out HERE) which were awesome and now the plot has come up. Check this out:
* The game's plot revolves around "forgotten" Disney characters. Obscure characters from long-forgotten cartoons and rides have been cast into a dark world of broken-down machinery and very bitter attitudes.
* The main villain is Disney's first ever cartoon hero, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Now a nobody, he has rallied the residents of the dark world and is out for revenge against the mouse that took his place as Disney's spokesman.
* Oswald unleashes the Phantom Blot, a monster that invades the Disney universe and begins to disassemble it by using black ink and making the colors of the world run
together (this explains the "melting" imagery used in concept art).
First of all how cool is it that they're bringing back the very first Disney cartoon character and that Disney is allowing him to be pissed off!! I'm also amped that they seem to be taking a really dark direction with this game. I doubt it'll be filled with Mickey feasting on dead intestines but it'll still be darker than Steamboat Willy.
