Scene: Bob and Fred are sat on a sofa with two PS3 controllers .

Fred: Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to scripted gamer

Bob: Today weíre looking at the latest game in the gadget grinding, Lombax leaping, Robot Ravaging Ratchet and Clank series

Fred: umm yes we are

Bob: And let me start by saying that Ratchet and Clank All 4 One is a very different game to all that have gone before it

Fred: ....indeed, I agree

Bob: This game is best played co-operatively with a friend or online, but is also playable as a one player with an AI

Fred: Bob what are you..

Bob: Also as well as being able to play as Ratchet or Clank you can play as The idiotic captain Quark, or the Evil Dr Nefarious

Fred: Enough I cant take it anymore what is going on

Bob: what?

Fred: What is going on

Bob: I dont understand??

Fred: Youíre...youíre being normal

Bob: Iím always normal

Fred: No youíre not, usually I open the show with my usual grace and flare and then you say something idiotic that takes us offtrack and I get angry and you get silly then we talk about the game and then we go home.

Bob: it doesnít have to always be that way, you see this co-op game play does come at a price

Fred: Go on say something stupid

Bob: Firstly the camera is locked so you cant look around and you are forced to follow a pre set path

Fred: You know you want to

Bob: secondly the weapon select has moved to the right thumb stick which is awkward.com

Fred: Seriously now

Bob: you cant use Clank as a helicopter, and saddest of all is thereís no arena battles which I flipping LOVED!!

Fred: YOUíRE MESSING WITH MY HEAD!!

Bob: Calm down

Fred:I WILL NOT! Not when youíre destroying the very foundation of my life

Bob: Thatís a bit over the top isnít it

Fred: I like my structure Bob, I like it a lot! It lets me know that everything is ok and as it should be

Bob: I think you need a lemsip

Fred: I do not have a cold you imbecile! Iím upset

Bob: Maybe a lie down and a paracetamol

Fred: Iím not ill you idiot

Bob: hows about a vaporub

Fred: Do you not listen to..hang on you said something stupid

Bob: a cup of Bovril and an episode of corrie yeah

Fred: Ha You know I hate Bovril and television soaps

Bob: Did you know that if robots did exist theyíd have killed us all by now

Fred: Robots do exist you...oh...oh yes thatís thats right, youíre the idiot, Iím the intellect

Bob: And just imagine how long it takes a Lombax to dry off after a bath

Fred: AHHHH and all is as it should be

Bob: You alright there now.

Fred: yyes, Iím fine

Bob: Good now can we talk about the flippin game please

Fred: Ok, well I agree with all your points but I found the sacrifices were worth it as the game we played felt fresh and reinvigorated. The new gadgets were fun, the old weapons felt familiar whilst new weapons and the incredibly fun test sections were funny and great to play.

Bob: However I like to think it was an interlude rather than a new direction and I hope the next one brings back some of the free roaming, and the older gadgets

Fred: Well it looks like weíve run out of time

Bob: But what is time? And how exactly do you run out of it

Fred: Oh do shut up, and next time, stupid from the start yes

Bob: I dont know you try to mix it up once and you never hear the end of it

Fred: Weíve been the scripted gamers goodnight.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
