    I think this guy just got the wrong end of the stick...

    but maybe, just maybe there will be a port, similar to the QuakeWii WIP.

    It'd be nice to see something that'd play any of those old type of games, a Wii WAD that the end-user just has to provide the original game WAD (doom WAD's) or PK1 files for whichever game.
    I'm thinking Blood and Hexen [​IMG]

    I lol'd so hard.

    No, it wouldn't work. .wad is just a file format, the doom wads don't have the information packed in to install a channel on the Nintendo Wii.

    this is dumb, it wont work, because they have different content, why would you want to install them? you cant load them there level data, you would need doom on your wii
