Many people were captivated by the world of Epic Mickey, a game in which you explore a world of forgotten Disney cartoons while taking on the role of Mickey Mouse, who looks like he’s jumped straight out of his debut cartoon, Steamboat Willie. The game was often criticized for its poor camera controls but was highly praised for its use of forgotten creations from Disney.

Warren Spector, director of the title, has said that he once expressed interest in creating a movie adaptation for the series. However, Disney turned him down. Read more after the jump!

We're back with another installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! It's been a while, so here's a breakdown of how it works. Every Monday we pit video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes! This week's battle is a Mario Kart showdown. From Super Nintendo to Wii U, there have been eight great Mario Kart games. Which one is your favorite? Click below to cast your vote and join in the debate!

Let's be honest, the Wii U has had a less-than-amazing run so far. While Nintendo's current console has had many great exclusives such as Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros., and Hyrule Warriors, as it stands, the console has sold barely 10 million units. Our friends over at VentureBeat say that recent events may point towards a premature, yet controlled, development downswing of the Wii U. Nobody is saying this is because "Nintendoomed" but more because recent events are coming together in a less-than-appealing fashion. Between the delay of Zelda U (which isn't much of a surprise alone), the reveal of Nintendo diving into the mobile market with DeNA, and their latest announcement of the NX, things are starting to look a bit suspicious.

Computer science student Erik Ross has recreated the first level from Super Mario 64 through the Unity game engine. In addition to giving Bob-omb Battlefield an HD makeover, he also removed certain items like the red coins and the Wing Cap and replaced them with springs and coin blocks. Luckily, gamers hoping to try out this level for themselves can play it on their web browser or download it directly to their computer. Ross does not plan on creating any more levels from Super Mario 64, but he does encourage people to use the project for any purpose they like, except selling it for profit.

Over the past few years, modded games have become a big part of the Smash community. Some mods, like Project M, have even come to find a home in the tournament circuit. However, more often than not, Smash mods require some degree of hacking and/or Homebrew. Just recently, a trailer was posted on YouTube showcasing a Melee mod that does not require any hacking, ISOs, or even Homebrew.

Most will recognize Riot Games as the developers behind the massively popular online game League of Legends. Between working on new patches, skins, and characters for League, the developers at Riot have been having some fun with mods in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
