These days though, you don't even need the skill's you've got so many DIY maual's and walkthrough, also in the mods department you can send them off to get them modded.
Also regarding the thread subject about editing the character's it more than doable, but only the hard core gamer's and i don't think there's enough of them that love the wii as much as we do to do that. Basically the hardcore community for the wii games is very smal at the moment, I'ts definately doable look at how mods there were of quake 3 arena, not only were there 1000's of skins downloadable, there were games developed using it's engine, heres a few i played:
>Bid for power!!!!!! That was amazing
>Urban Terror!!! also very cool
I can't remember the other one's I've retired the PC gaming world, for now.
Besides, it's simple enough extracting specific model skins and editing them, because burning it onto a new CD is doable, you just have to do it at the lowest buffer possible!
To sum up, hopefully in the future we will see modding/editing of games, i know you can get plenty of homebrew's fro the DS, it's only a console away!
I'll be back
