Scene: Bob and Fred are sat on a sofa with two Xbox 360 controllers.

Fred: Welcome to another edition of scripted gamer.

Bob: (sings theme tune to the good the bad and the ugly)

Fred: What are you doing

Bob: (continues)

Fred: Oh good grief, Really Bob

Bob: Are you talking to me pardner

Fred: Well yes who else would I be talking to, youíre the only other person here

Bob: It was one of them rhetrioical questions

Fred: Rhetorical

Bob: Thems fighting words mister

Fred: How is rhetorical a fighting word

Bob: oh you said it again this leaves me no choice, prepare to meet your maker

Fred: Will you cut it out

Bob: Draw!

Fred: Bob!

Bob: bang, bang bang.

Fred: Really!!

Bob: You are so dead right now

Fred: Well clearly Iím not

Bob: Well you totally would be if you was in the gunstringer

Fred: a tenuous link at best but one Iíll take, todays game is the Kinect shooter the gunstringer

Bob: Itís Brill

Fred: Now normally me and Bob are usually sceptical of kinect games as we find more often than not they are a bit...buggy

Bob: As in they dont do what theyíre meant to do, or they do but only just

Fred: The gunstringer however is a unique concept

Bob:Bob: You control an undead puppet

Fred: Marionette

Bob: Itís not a girl Fred, itís a puppet

Fred: thatís not what..oh never mind, so whilst your left hand controls the...... puppets movement the right controls your gun

Bob: And you shoot pretty much everything

Fred: thereís a primitive cover shoot system but itís still unique for Kinect

Bob: The story is a classic revenge tale

Fred: except that you seem to be performing the tale to a live theatre audience

Bob: yeah that was a bit weird....but fun

Fred: Yes weird but fun, I cant imagine how you find it easy to relate to that

Bob: even though I dont really get what you just said, something inside me knows it was a dig about me

Fred: I have no idea what youíre talking about

Bob: HMMMM, well basically folks we rate this game, itís not for hardcore gamers but it is a lot of fun

Fred: and weird

Bob: definitely weird

Fred: Just like you, weíve been the scripted gamers

Bob: OI!!!

Fred: 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:
