Duck Amuck

Though most videogames featuring Looney Tunes characters have been less than impressive (putting it mildly), there's a new one that sounds like it might actually be kind of interesting. Announced at the last week's E3 (the annual trade show for the videogame industry), it's for the Nintendo DS, and it's called Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck, based on the classic Chuck Jones cartoon of the same title. It sounds like you get to play the role of the animator messing with Daffy Duck:

Rub out part of Daffy’s body, for instance, and draw in something else. Use the DS microphone to alter Daffy’s voice. And you even can temporarily close the DS while still following instructions from Daffy on when to push the left and right shoulder buttons (to achieve the desired result upon re-opening).
