Just don't make it look like Duck Hunt. The only joy I ever got out of that game was shooting at the laughing dog. Stupid dog.
Poor planning on your part doesn't necessitate an emergency on mine.

Beer: Is there anything it can't do?

Ok, so you can create a video game on the Wii, but can anyone play it unless they have a hacked Wii? Sort of limiting compared to the vast number of PCs that can run it straight out...
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.

Initially it would only run on a hacked Wii. The good news is for the moment getting the Homebrew Channel running is easy, inexpensive and relatively safe.

If something I write gets mature enough I may work on a port to the PC. This is partly for *my* entertainment though.

New idea: American Gladiators. Just a ton of mini games, but you could potentially get one up quick and add more as you want. Also has multi-player value
