Game Studs: Bonus Material

July 16, 2009 at 11:26 pm (Game Studs) ()

*Author’s note:  During auditions for the show, I needed something to have the actors read for the character of Danny/Jenny.  At the time, I wasn’t even entirely sure if Danny would be a boy or a girl, with my initial decision leaning towards a female.  However, I had used up all my female-bashing credits with Channel 70 News only one term previous, so Danny became a male for Game Studs.

 

Danny/Jenny:  Well personally I feel that Nintendo’s overrated in today’s market.  They may make quality games, but they’re nothing compared to the masterpieces that Konami or Capcom have painstakingly brought to life over the years.  I mean seriously, Mega Man, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil?  Has Nintendo created any truly lasting characters?  Mario has become pedestrian in the market and the Zelda series has hit a wall, while Konami and Capcom are forced to keep Nintendo afloat.  If not for their third party assistance, Nintendo would have capsized years ago and then we’d have to suffer through Microsoft attempting to dominate the market, which is highly unlikely at best.

 

Ben:  What in the hell are you talking about?

 

Danny/Jenny:  I…I thought we were having an impromptu debate about the industry.

 

Ben:  No, we weren’t.  You were; I was thinking of all the ways that I could make your life even more depressing than it already is.

 

Danny/Jenny:  But surely you have to agree with my argument.

 

Ben:  No, Shirley is a name best used in pornography.  I don’t know what you just said, but all I heard was “Wank wank wankity wank.”

 

Danny/Jenny:  (Rolls their eyes and smiles).  Ah, you kidder you.  I get ya.  You’re too devoted to your own companies to listen to reason.

 

Ben:  No, I’m too devoted to not looking like a complete jackass whenever I speak, but at least I make a conscious effort to just be a raging asshole instead of being naïve to my own self-jackassery.  You savy?

 

Danny/Jenny:  Um…are we still talking about video games anymore?

 

Ben:  Yes.  I’m obviously referring to Halo.

 

Danny/Jenny:  Hah, well then of course it’s overrated.  Don’t even get me started on how Halo’s damaged the credibility of the industry.
