Fred and Bob have some international visitors over to play Wii-Party.
Confused? Listen to the Scripted Gamer Pilot episode to meet our reviewers and hear how it all started that fateful day.
Scene: Bob and Fred are sat on a sofa with two Wii Controllers Bob is wearing a party hat.
Fred: What, what's going on?
Bob: It's your surprise birthday party.
Fred: But my birthday isn't for months yet?
Bob: That's why it's a surprise
Fred: Well, thank you very much, so who else is coming?
Bob: Excuse me?
Fred: Who else is coming to my surprise party?
Bob: Well in order to keep it a surprise...I didn't tell anyone.
Fred: Oh, well, right then
Bob: But I did bring Wii-Party, which is totally awesome fun.
Fred: Isn't that a four player game
Bob: Well it can be yeah.
Fred: Hold on let me see if I can reach my two friends to come join us.
Bob: Two friends?
Fred: Yes they do the transatlantic version of Scripted Gamer. Hello, hello? Jaque, Vladimir are you able to come to a party, yes it's in the studio. Ok that's marvellous see you soon.
Half an hour later the new guests had arrived.
Fred: Welcome Jaque.
Jaque: Ah bonjour Fred it is uh how do you say, a pleasure to be here.
Bob: Hello, I'm Bob
Jaque: Ah Bob, Fred as uh told me so much about you.
Bob: All good I hope.
Jaque: Uh, ui, oui of course
Fred: Vladimir old chap
Vlad: Fred, good to see you, where is this party of which you speak?
Bob: Right here Mr Vlad
Fred: Yes this is where the party is at as the young people say. What say we start to play the game then?
Bob: Yeah what he said.
Two hours and much fun later
Bob: Vlad, Vlad, put him in the middle you don't want the boat to flip.
Vlad: I know what to do little farmer.
Jaque: Hee hee little farmer
Fred: Left a bit right a bit
Vlad: Annnnnnnnd there.
Bob: Nooooooooooo it's toppling.
Fred: Oh no!
Jaque: Jeu ta lor.
Bob: Told you.
Fred: Well that's it then chaps, what a lovely party, but Bob, weren't we meant to review a game tonight
Bob: Oh yeah.
Jaque: Zat is ok let us eh do it for you.
Ladies and gentlemen wii party is a great game which is fun for all the family.
Vlad: Yes it has mini games and long games, and team games. My favourite one being where you play mini games and have to put your Miis on a ship mast to make sure the boat doesn't topple.
Jaque: But if we are honest eh you will need to play it to truly get the sense of fun. And you will need four players to fully appreciate the game.
Bob: That wasn't bad I suppose.
Fred: We'd have done better obviously
Bob: Wasn't really that funny either was it.
Fred: That's why were the top dogs Bob, shh they're coming, That was great chaps thank you so much for coming
Vlad: It was pleasure, we have been the international scripted gamers
Jaque: Ehh good eh night.
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.
Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
