    @Jennifer said: I'll probably get it twice too - on PC and Xbox 360.

    PC and PS3 for me.

  • BTW...please tell me I wasn't the only one preparing to sing along with the theme before the video even said to.

    If I'd have remembered the lyrics I would have done so... but then they thoughtfully provided them, so I totally did. Best trailer I've seen in quite some time, I must say.

  • What would be really cool is a new DuckTales adventure game. Just not from Telltale, since they don't really make actual adventure games anymore.

    I can imagine a DuckTales adventure game where you get to play several characters and switch back and forth whenever you want, sort of like how it is with Day of the Tentacle. There's so much potential for stories... time travel, Indiana Jones-style adventuring, mystery, etc.

  • I've never played Duck Tales.

    Actually, I don't think I've even seen an episode of the show. Should I go hide in the corner of shame?

    No. Just get a NES emulator and play it.

    I'll pretend I didn't see that blatant encouragement of piracy.

    Emulators don't necessarily mean piracy, especially for NES games. You can play the game through ConsoleClassix here for free. :)

    The site works like a video game rental site (they have a certain amount of ROMs for any particular game (and the physical game to go with each ROM - each backed up by their own equipment), and whenever someone plays a particular game, that particular copy is no longer available). It's been tested by Nintendo once too - they got a cease and desist letter from Nintendo once, but like LucasArts with ScummVM, it was a simple misunderstanding. Once they explained what their service was all about, and how they strive to keep within legal boundries, Nintendo withdrew the C&D notice. :)

    You can play all the NES, Atari 2600, and Colecovision games they have for free (as long as a copy is available), and other consoles (SNES, TG-16, Sega Genesis/Megadrive, N64, Gameboy, GBC, GBA, and more) for $5.99 a month or $59.99 a year. It's a great service, and it's a shame that they're not more widely known (since they use most of the money they get to buy new cartridges for the service).

    Happy to proven wrong (for once).

  • I went to the PAX and I saw some of the gameplay. Boy, did they ever nail it. From what I have seen, it reminds me a lot of Wario Land shake it. Although, Wario had 2D backgrounds while in this Ducktales game there are CG backgrounds. And when it gets to the cut-scenes you hear voice acting while Wario land shake it had grumbling sounds(like Banjo-kazooie). Alan Young still has the 'Scrooge' in him to make Scrooge sound perfect. Does anyone know who is going to be voicing Gimzoduck in this game? I know his original voice actor passed away in 2005.

I know I'd love to see an adventure game of Ducktales happen since it suits the adventure game genre. Too bad Epic Mickey 2 didn't meet Disney's expectations to make it a reality.
