Disney's Surprising Impact on the Game Industry

Post by Wizzard419 » May Thu 05, 2011 11:14 pm

No, this isn't about the way they buy and close companies as of late. I came across an interesting article on an early video game franchise (so early it's considered bleeding edge) and how the craptastic workplace of Disney made him quit and become a legend.

I actually picked up a bunch of cells and signed concept works/line drawing from all his games in an auction several years ago and now they adorn my work office walls. :D

I recently purchased the Dragon's Lair Trilogy for the Wii. You get Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair II, and Space Ace. They are all animated by Don Bluth and are a lot of fun. I was fan of these games as a kid, but they were quarter eaters in the arcade. I have also noticed they are available on the playstation network. (If it was working)

Is the PSN (might be on XBL, I'll check later) vesion in HD? I still have the DVD versions (and Time Traveler! Which sucks without the parabolic mirror). I do blame him for the quick time events (Press X not to die).

I believe it's in HD on PSN but I can't check right now due to the PSN being down because it was hacked. It's been a very long 2 weeks and counting. :cry:

I did see something mentioned about it not being up until 5/31. I had to google PSN to see what all the fuss was about :roll:
I still have yet to try any of the Disney video games :(

They said they would get it running as soon as it was all clear but not to be surprised if it takes that long, or longer.

They are trying to restart the network for NA and EU right now, so if you want to try and login you can check the map first.
