This Isn't Flying. This Is Falling With Style!

by Rainier on Dec. 2, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We got to play some Epic Mickey today, and I was surprised at how good it looks — for a Wii game, anyhow. Most Wii games aren't exactly known for their top-notch graphical quality, which they make up for in fun and playability, but Disney seems to have gotten this one right. On the flip side, the camera angle is a bit frustrating, and not sure if it's an isolated case, but it might not be very well suited for people who get motion sick.

Watched the season finale of Sons Of Anarchy, and it was a true butt-clencher with a surprise ending. Very good stuff!

Switched a bit from Stronghold: Kingdoms to Vindictus as Nexon launched a content update adding new quests, armor, weapons and an entirely new location.
