Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Disney Universe is Disney's attempt to get some moneys from the LEGO/LittleBigPlanet popularity and, truth be told, they did a pretty good job. There's a demo and it's pretty darn fun.
The main attraction of the game is that players can put on costumes resembling 45 (But More franchises on 360/PS3 Version) characters from classic and contemporary Disney and Pixar properties (including a few Third-Party franchises), such as those from Alice in Wonderland, Tron: Legacy, Monsters, Inc., Lilo & Stitch, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, Mickey Mouse, Robin Hood, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Frog, 101 Dalmatians, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Hercules, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, The Jungle Book, Tangled, WALL-E, Finding Nemo, and The Muppets.
Every costume comes with a "tool" that can be levelled up, unlocking additional abilities and making it stronger. There's six worlds, each with three areas (divided into 4 levels) and a boss:
Alice in Wonderland
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Lion King
First DLC is out on the 15th and let's you play as villains which is the whole damn reason I bought the game.
It's release could not be timed poorer but it is getting some good reviews; the gameplay is fun if not repetitive. It's 70% co-op but you can certainly get competitive in several challenges, fuck each other up as well as compete to get Stars, the things that level up costumes.
