Linda aside, sometimes there's a backup in order processing. Worry if Jeff makes a habit of it long after a game is newly released.

Okay, I MUST know - why is is my suggestion of firing Linda and replacing her with a juicer so widely embraced? What else has she done to earn the reputation of having a temper worse than a Peroc warrior forced to watch endless reruns of "I Love Lucy"?

It's just the fact that a juicer would be much more productive - spidweb could branch out into the orange juice market and blow the competition away!

My GF3 order was processed within the hour. Actually, so far I have recieved an e-mail back with my code within 1-2 hours of all the games I've registered. (E3, A1, A2, GF1, GF2, GF3)

I'm a beta-tester. It's one of the many perks.

So, if you are beat-tester, you get a game free? of course, a beta-tester of the game itself, or not?

The full version or the beta version?

*sigh*

Can we volunteer to beta-test games too theoretically, or do you need special qualifacation?

Spiderweb takes beta tester applications almost every time it releases a game. I'm planning to apply to test A4.

EDIT: Uh, if that wasn't clear enough: you have to apply to test.

Is testing difficult to do? or is it just playing the game, making suggestions and saying where the errors are.

Well, you're expected to be thorough in playing it. Ideally, you should play through repeatedly, do different things each time, and make detailed comments and suggestions. Try to break the game's internal logic by doing things in ways the designer wouldn't expect. Assess whether combat is well-designed and what imbalances (if any) exist. When done well, it's considerably more work than just playing through it. Also, you have to expect a lot of bugs.

If you think that the few bugs that sneak into the final version are annoying, then beta-testing is not for you. The jump from the first beta to the final version is pretty astounding.

Hmmm, maybe I should apply to be a tester. I am a "nook-and-cranny" gamer that looks in every dresser/pot/plant/bookcase/rug of every house in every town, makes sure I have every square inch of map explored, and plays through the whole game several times to make sure I've tried every single choice imaginable. And I love to find loopholes in the programming. (for example: that one square you can stand on, just around the corner, where you can kill the big boss slowly with tiny blows without him ever seeing you.)

It seems I am actually rather fitted for beta-testing.
