dong at engrish games posts about the english version of junpei isshiki‘s made in wired, a take on warioware that’s focused on japanese shooters. (the title is a play off of the series’s japanese title, “made in wario”.) the premise is to complete a series of games that are only a few seconds long each. the reason you can do it is because you already know how.
if warioware is a dictionary of all the verbs in the videogame language (and it is: see the gamer’s quarter issue 8, mega microcosms), wired is a lexicon of all the verbs known to anyone who follows j-shooters, suggesting that even within the genre there is a common language that is widely understood and shared by players.
