THAT TRIVIA GAME

The Gameroom



Itís million dollar question time!

[APPLAUSE!]

Is...

[HOOTS!]

That...

[HOLLERS!]

Trivia...

[APPLAUSE!]

Game...

[APPLESAUCE!]

...any cop?

[HUSHED ANTICIPATION]

Erm, no. Itís cack, actually.

[OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!]

Oh fuck off, studio audience!

Right, now that the ovine masses have left the building we probably should elaborate.

Did you know that Chucky grew up, got a Jimmy Neutron hairdo, donned a stripy suit then became a game show host? We didnít either, but then we shelled shekels for That Trivia Game and experienced the abject horror.

But first, a potted history of trivia videogames. Buzz! exists. Itís existed since the days of the PS2. That Trivia Game looks like it predated Buzz! by a good decade. Itís fugly. F-U-G-L-Y.

Sure, but maybe itís a good triv game? Maybe the voiceoverís better than Jason Donovanís?

Nup. Nope, No way (sis).

Sure, as good Aussies we worship at the shrine of Jase Ė and he had sly fun with Buzz!, rather than sounding like heís being held at gunpoint, reading questions after having his eyes poked out with ice cream cones.

Also, as good Aussies, we expect when we buy a trivia game in the Australian PSN store that the majority of subjects wonít be preceded by ďAmericanĒ. Especially when itís never followed by ďidiotĒ. Of the mere 1,000 or so questions here Ė aka fuck all - weíd estimate that at least half of them are USA specific. Hello geographical snobbery!

Not only are there bugger-all questions, no localisation, no online and a Mr Whippy-haired host thatís the stuff of cheese nightmares, but there are wrong answers. Seriously! When they relate to ultra-American things like the Statue of Liberty in an obviously ultra-American game you really have to worry.

Actually, you really have to worry if you know anybody imbecilic enough to have paid good money for this terrible, terrible, tragic travesty.

Fuck.

[HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!]

take me back to the start...
