Give it a read at MMORPG.com.

You acquitted yourself well... The culture you have in that office is admirable.

I have often said.. if you go into the business see what they supply their own staff V Visitors or Clients.

That tells one a lot about whom you are dealing with. Short of a Shiatsu Chair in ones cubicle..

Hope to hear more office exploits..

Sounds like your staff has grown into Famous Amos Range of Cookie needs..

Awen must now have to lock her supply up..?

Best of All Worlds to the Cryptic Lair Dwellers...

I like these kinds of things. It gives me more ways to stalk developers for my soup.

After reading this article, I can't help but wonder if in STO there will also be "creditors" chasing after you as in RL.

I think it will be epic, especially with the way they're involving the community. All the info, videos and screenshots suggests it will please all sorts of fans and gamers alike

Cool. Good for this guy.



I used to think working for a game company would be a dream job. But now, I waver on whether it would be good to test video games for a living. I test network and CPOE software now, and play games with much of my free time. So my hobby would become my job. No matter how much I love a game, I'm not sure I would want to have to test it 40+ hours/week. Pluys, sometimes they wouldn't be games you are into.

On the flip side, the technology of making a game, and the fact you get an end product that gives a lot of people enjoyment would make it attractive. Plus there is a lot of things to poke at and run experiments on in a game, which is what makes it interesting for me. Testing network products you don't get a lot of feedback from your customers when it all works great and they rarely love using it, no matter how good it is. They mostly just want it to work reliably.
