Disney has been quite busy this year.

It's pretty awesome seeing old 80's and 90's games get reworked for the current generation of gaming. DuckTales is no exception to this. Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky few children who never owned a NES when it came out. I was the one with the Sega Master System, or Sega Genesis (Megadrive). However I did get a small bit of gameplay out of DuckTales when I was a kid on a friends' NES that I went over to and played quite often. I vaguely remember my experiences with it back then, but I do remember enjoying it quite a bit. Of course I play it a lot more often on emulator, but it's not quite the same as playing it on the actual console and probably not as enjoyable as it would if I had an NES back in the day playing it nonstop when I was 7 or 8 years old. Anyways I will most definitely be getting this little gem and most likely playing (and enjoying) the hell out of it!

Speaking of remasters, another Disney classic game is being remastered and should be released later on this month or next (Summer 2013), and that is Castle of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse. Of course, this was the game that I played for hours upon hours on the Sega Genesis when it first came out, so this will be my personal revisit down memory lane. Watching the gameplay videos of this certainly put a smile on my face as I saw all the levels and music redone for the current generation to love just as much as I had the original. This will surely be a Disney filled couple of months for me until Watch_Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV and Beyond: Two Souls come out.
