Rented Epic Mickey, and I'm glad I didn't just buy it. It is a good looking game for Wii, but it's mostly trial and error and not much fun at that. And they put you back too far when you happen to die and have to start over. Perhaps it would get better as it went along, but I doubt it. Pass on Epic Mickey.
Speaking of the bad checkpoint/savepoints, I dl'ed the demo of Cave Story after hearing how great a game it is. I did have fun with it; it is a cool throwback to NES games. That being said, when I did die in the demo, it started me back in the VERY beginning every time. About the third time I had to sit through the opening speech by two characters, I had to give up. It was so frustrating that I went from for sure buying it when it comes out to not wanting it unless the demo just doesn't reflect the actual gameplay.
So, if anyone here has dl'ed the game for Xbox (I think it has already been available at their arcade), please tell me if there are any save points or checkpoints in the early part of the game.
