Epic Mickey Designer "Drooled Over" Mario Creator

At this year's E3 gaming expo, Epic Mickey designer Warren Spector got the chance to meet Shigeru Miyamoto. And he was totally gobsmacked. Figurative drool was involved!

"I basically drooled on the guy at E3 when I met him," Spector tells the Official Nintendo Magazine. "I couldn't ask a single question. I carry his business card with me at all times now. It's in my wallet and will be there until the day I die."

Oh. Um. Cool.

"I really did just gush over him, honestly," says Spector. "I tried to thank him for all the wonderful games he's given me and how inspiring I find his work. We commiserated a little bit about how the wireless controls were kinda jacked at the Nintendo press conference but that was it really."

Shigeru Miyamoto doesn't only have the ability to churn out wonderful video games, but to turn big time game designers into putty. That's power, folks!

    ONM interviewed Spector AND Miyamoto in the same interview?

    Think i'd be far worse ever meeting him, i love shiggy

    Also mean spector here?

    “I really did just gush over him, honestly,” says Miyamoto. “I tried to thank him for all the wonderful games he’s given me and how inspiring I find his work.

      I also thought this sounded wrong. Name swap?


    I did a similar thing when I met Tsutomu Kuono, the Lead Designer and ideas-man for the LocoRoco series. I got his business card, spent 15 minutes talking to him (with Tadaaki Hasegawa, the Associate Producer, translating) spent half an hour in the bathroom afterwards drunkenly calling friends in Canberra exclaiming that "I met the f*ucking LocoRoco guy!", and then got him to sign my LocoRoco 1 case after his talk at the conference.

    Truly one of the greatest highlights of my life.
