After Epic Mickey 2, no wonder. Disney Interactive shut down pretty much all of their studios, including the one that made an actual good game (Black Rock Studio and Split/Second), but they left Junction Point intact... and that's what they delivered. For shame.

Oh, no big loss then.

Sucks for the employees, but it's not like they made good games.

I liked the first one, was looking forward to the second one if they fixed camera/control system and maybe make general gameplay a bit more interesting. Since it didn't happen, I settled on waiting for a price drop... Still sad to hear this.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Good. Bad studios should be closed down. Epic Mickey sucked and Epic Mickey 2 sucked harder. So glad Epic Mickey 2 bombed like Epic Mickey 1 should have. Let the good studios survive while the bad ones go under.

Same thing with THQ. They were a terrible publisher, and their death is a good thing. It does suck for any innocent developer that loses their job as a result, but one less publisher pushing crap like online passes, on-disc DLC, overpriced costume DLC, cheat code DLC, and other garbage THQ did is a good thing. Here's hoping other publishers take note and start to shape up.
