Warren Spector does some great work. I can not wait to see what is next from him.

Epic Mickey 3 could become part of the Disney Infinity universe.

So, everything before Epic Micky counts for nothing then? Show some respect.
Warren is a truly stellar designer and his one supposed misstep was a labor of love for him, being that he was a die-hard Disney for his entire life.

People, especially in the gaming industry, don't care If you made great games 10 years ago, they care about your last game, and epic Mickey 2 flopped, I enjoyed it but it didn't sell and that's how business works, he had 2 flops in a row and now gaming companies are scared to hire him for new game projects, so he's going to teach, nothing wrong with that of course, but its probably the only option for him to make a living as of right now. So to answer your question...

Yes it counts for nothing from a business standpoint.

No, it doesn't from a gaming standpoint.
