A new TV show kicking off in the UK this Friday has boldly claimed to be the Top Gear of gaming”.
Think you’ve heard that before? You have. In June Red Bull revealed plans for its own gaming TV show which it dubbed as ‘Top Gear for gamers’.
This project is not related, however. It’s called Bored Gamers and will be shown on Freeview channel The Latest TV beginning this Friday (September 5th) at 9pm.
It’s presented by Jim Devereaux and Greg Marshall and is actively on the hunt for both studio guests and games to review.
Taking a humorous and irreverent look at all things gaming – in a British television first – Bored Gamers combines the exciting worlds of video and adult board gaming, to bring the viewer up to date news, reviews, interviews and much more,” the blurb proclaims.
Incorporating an easy-going every-man style, presenters, gaming enthusiasts and self-proclaimed ‘non-experts’ Jim Devereaux and Greg Marshall review the latest video and board game releases as well as previous classics. Utilising the ‘out of five stars’ reviewing method, Bored Gamers also introduces the ‘Boredometer’, a gauge based tool to review the re-playability and longevity of game play, in short – the boredom threshold.”
