explaining itwould be too hard. watch an episode, and take careful note of the character JD. His personal monologues sould help.

In the end, philosophy isn't the most useful major. There really isn't much you can do with it apart from writing and teaching.

The thought processes might not be that hard to write in. I find myself thinking of Scrubs, where the character is just talking (to the audience) as the other characters go about their days. Or maybe a soliquoy. The thoughts could be portrayed, though not necessarily efficiently.

Maybe. But as long as there is democracy, there will be factions. As long as there are factions, there will be disagreement. As long as the is disagreement, there will be war.

As long as there are two people in the world, somebody will want someone dead.

Think about it though. Frankly, the aim system with the wii is bad enough already. But once they calibrate the zerogravity physics, which is sure to screw nintendo up anyway, adding the aiming mechanism would just overwhelm the programmers.

System is unimportant. And frankly, the wii is just an aweful system.

If they could make it, it woudl be fantastic. But the mechanics would probly be hard to program, liek in teh battle room. But the diversity of potential gameplay, the idea has a lot of merit.
