    It seems that yet another Lego game for the Wii has been exploited, this is great because it just gives us so many options for homebrew enabling the wii now.

    How come that most game exploits are from lego games? I mean there's one for 3 now.

    Probably because whoever programmed the lego games did a real sloppy job of it.
    I guess they may work on similar exploits, so think of it as a "standard" for exploitation, haha.

    Makes it easier to find the exploits and all huh?

    The creator of these Lego games is gonna get so much crap from Ninty. But they can then just point the fingers at Twilight Princess and Smash haha.

    Yeah, it's probably an issue of bad porting, first from older code to the Wii, and then from the first Wii port to newer Wii titles all on the same basic engine.

    For the LEGO games at least [​IMG]

    Wow, maybe this spells the end for Lego games as we know it.

    Maybe a Lego 3DS hack? [​IMG] lol

    I'm guessing the 3DS version is a new engine, so it still might happen, just not in the same way.

    Well, none of the exploits came to light until all the currently exploited games had been released. And it uses the exact same bug in all three, with a malformed character AFAIK. So it was a case of reusing code (a perfectly understandable practice in programming), which turned out to be buggy.

    I would love to see a 'Petz' hack for the 3DS, if that crappy shovelware makes it there
