During its showing at E3 2012, the developers of the highly anticipated multiplatform sequel to the Wii-Exclusive game Disney’s Epic Mickey have set a release date for the game along with a brand new trailer and behind the scenes documentary for it.  Take a look!

The game adds cooperative play to the series, continuing some time after the events of the first game.  Mickey Mouse returns to the Wasteland, and this time he has the assistance of his brother, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the first creation of Walt Disney.  Both characters have their own abilities.  With Mickey armed with his ability to use Paint and Thinner, Oswald is armed with new features such as a special remote control that can assist while navigating the Wasteland.

Don’t know anything about Mickey’s brother Oswald the Lucky Rabbit?  Check out this documentary about him.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is coming November 18th, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii.

Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo June 9, 2012

Epic has revealed the next generation of graphical game engines at E3 2012 and boy does it look just as groundbreaking as its previous incarnation did when it was first revealed.

Unreal Engine 4 is the latest graphical engine developed by Epic Games, the makers of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, and is intended for the next generation of consoles and PCs.  The increase in graphical fidelity and effects power is unquestionable.

For those of you who want to know when actual games will be coming that will use this technology, here’s some information for comparison.  Unreal Engine 3 was first shown in 2004, a year prior to the announcement of that era’s next generation consoles.  Epic would release their first game to use it in 2006, the highly successful Gears of War for the Xbox 360.

My question is, when will Epic release their first game for it, and what is that game going to be?
