Disney Interactive Studios announced today that Disney Universe, a fast-paced multiplayer action adventure game, is currently in development for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Wii™ and Windows PC/MAC. In Disney Universe, players will experience non-stop action through a mix-up of worlds inspired by both animated and live action films from Disney, including titles from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures. Players will suit-up as iconic Disney and Disney•Pixar characters and embark on adventures to power up their hero, battle powerful adversaries and master challenging puzzles to save the universe. Disney Universe is slated for release in fall 2011.
"Disney Universe is a vast treasure chest of Disney properties with memorable characters, places and experiences that gamers, as well as Disney fans will enjoy," said Adam Sussman, senior vice president of publishing, Disney Interactive Media Group. "The fast-paced, frenetic gameplay combined with wacky humor and hilarious situations make Disney Universe the perfect game to play with family and friends."
In Disney Universe, players can select from more than 40 classic and contemporary Disney character costumes, including Alice ("Alice in Wonderland"), Mike ("Monsters, Inc."), TRON ("TRON: Legacy") and Stitch ("Lilo & Stitch") to explore six different worlds inspired by legendary Disney and Disney•Pixar films. Each world will allow players to experience objectives and missions that follow Disney and Disney•Pixar movie storylines. Players will select a character-based costume, with each costume offering a specific tool that changes and grows in power as players adventure through the game. Disney Universe offers frenetic gameplay, multiplayer with up to three friends and slapstick humor that will appeal to players of all ages.
The fun will continue on with plans for Disney Universe to be an expanding universe post-launch with items for download and new content available. Additional worlds, costumes, and more will be available for purchase, giving Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 system owners an ever-evolving gameplay experience.
I am a big Disney fan so this is really exciting for me. A game where I can dress up a chibi like over than 40 Disney characters, yes please! I say we speculate what the other 36 costumes will be!

He writes for them, of course they fucking are. "
Something like that. I know a lot of these people... so it's not like I'm some random person entering the Whiskey Office, but how I understand it.... any random user CAN go to the office and get a tour and such! ;)
Hey GB users! It's been a really long time since I've posted here on the site (Around 7 months now) but I wanted to share this with all of you.
When it comes to the Whiskey Media sites, I usually spend my time at Comic Vine and Anime Vice. At the beginning of this month I had the privilege to accompany the Comic Vine staff once again as their convention intern for Wonder Con in San Fransisco. You are probably wondering, "what does this have to do with video games?" Well nothing, it has to do with Giant Bomb.
Since the comic book convention was held in San Fran, I took the opportunity to visit the offices of my favorite websites. I was there After Hours so I didn't get to meet everybody. I did meet Vinny, Drew, Melisa (Whiskey HR) and Alex Navarro from Screened for the first time. I got to see Ana (AHR), Ethan, Daniel (Rizener) and Norm from Tested once again and of course I spent my weekend with Joey, Sara (Babs), Tom Pinchuk and Tony Guerrero (G-Man) from Comic Vine.
I was at the Whiskey Media Office... Of course I took pictures:
