Is this true about a lot of Wii games, or just this one?

So far I've only modded my Wii so I can install the games to a HDD. Mostly because I heard the Wii's number one fault problem are screwed drive rails, and it's my kids' main console. Does this Ocarina allow in-game cheats as well? Like a Game Genie?
AFAIK it allows for all sorts of cheats, inifinite energy, lives, weapons, ammo etc.. but tbh I only use it for the DKC button hack... Ocarina is built into USB LoaderGX, iirc you go into the option page for the game and point and click the Ocarina option and the Wii connects and downloads the latest cheatfile, then you just go into the setup page (the one where you select video modes, 002 fix, Alt Dols etc) and switch Ocarina to yes and then select the cheats/hacks you wanna use

I never got past the broken highway stage in Nightshade, which I believe is stage 10.

Just got off of a Dead or Alive 2 session with my flatmates, which ended up lasting 5 hours. Having never played it before, being able to counter most moves and pre-empt what will be coming is a very funny feeling.
The pinnacle, however, was the last hour where two more flatmates got back from a party, half-cut and then proceeded to almost beat us >.>

Ooh excellent man, thanks for that!

I have a 7yr old that just likes to censored about on some games from time to time (without the added hassle of dying or running out of ammo! :lol: ) and so stuff that can enable a sort of "Keys to the City" mode like in Crackdown is very handy.

Big cheers to whoever made a thread about Forget-Me-Not (Crunchy?); it stuck in my mind, and now I've got it on iPhone and PC. It's gloriously mental! Up there with Pacman and Doodlebug as far as maze games go. :)

Star Fox 64 3D. I've completed the "easy" path and have unlocked score attack mode which lets you replay any unlocked levels. Unlike the N64 version you can now either get a bronze, silver or gold medal on each mission. The gold medals have some insane kill quota's attached to them, way harder to do than the medals in the N64 version thats for sure!

In-between Shining Force III sessions on the Saturn, I'm loving 'Time Crisis' and 'Time Crisis Project Titan' on the PS1. I bought them because one of the light-guns I recently got in a Saturn joblot fits the PS1 too, but unfortunately these games don't work with that particular light-gun which is a shame. Even just having to use the controller, though, I'm bloody addicted! :)

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

Deus Ex: HR, after playing for an hour and a half my brain has finally accepted that running around and shooting like a lunatic will get me absolutely nowhere!!!
Good game but finding it tough to start with.

Forza 3. Was only playing Forza 2 not long back. Forza 2 still looks nice but what a leap in performance! :D

I played a bit of Pac Land and The Lost Sun Heart on the PC Engine today, I actually made my way through a few levels on Pac Land, I've not really given it much attention before and Sun Heart is an above average shoot em up with a fixation on eyeballs.
