Another week has just flown by and its Friday again!! Roll on the weekend :)
One of my followers on twitter (hi Belphegor86) mentioned recently that they were interested in hearing about our testing process and in particular about what I do all day. Well the big question I am asked especially when I tell people that I do testing at a video games company is "It must be great sitting there playing games all day?" - I wish. This is so far from the truth I don't know where to begin.
Lets look at Agarest. I get given a build and the first thing I have to look at is Sony's Wonderfully lengthy TRC document. The next 12 hours (it feels much longer) are spent ejecting the disc at just the right time, making and deleting saves, switching controllers into the most bizarre configurations I can think of, pulling out network cables, checking that buttons are displayed correctly in the game etc... etc... and this before I even get to play the game. So I wish I was sitting around playing games all day. Over the next few days I'll start writing a guide to the life of a QA person starting with part 1 on Friday next week.
In current news Agarest is with SCEE's FQA, all the printed parts have had approval from Idea Factory (thanks Damien :)) and SCEE. We're just waiting on lead times for manufacturing so we can put the pre-order link on the Ghostlight Store.
Enjoy your weekend everyone and if you have got anything you want to ask feel free to mention it on the comments or on my twitter account.
