  1. Do i need a portfolio to become a tester?
  2. Right Im just about to finnish my degree in IT. My programming skills arent strong at all, but I'd really like to improve them in my spare time. Im living in edinburgh should I just send cv s to developers? Will a degree help me get a job in testing? Ive noticed rockstar in leith are hiring but their edge advert didnt say anything about testers. Any tips on how I should go about applying, what are my chances of finding work in a QA/testing dept ie are jobs scarce at the moment. Sorry for all the questions!
  3. never did that module. Did you do a methodolgies module?
  4. strangely enough becuase the insides of the dc stick are ps1 pads and im using a an ps pad to xbox adapter C and Z are black and white, though it really doesnt matter as youll be using an xbox pad to insert coins etc.
  5. Just finnished a final in this module an i ve been wondering do developers have documented methodologies for developing games? Do publishers like them, in a less risky kind of way? (BTW this was one of the most dull modules i ve ever had, blooming NIMSAD, who ever made that up should burn in hell)
  6. surely its to promote innovation and stop all there games feeling the same. Also it sounds a bit like ibm and nintendo, they promote competition between teams (as jpickford was saying i think).
  7. Dunno why I m telling you lot this but I had to tell someone who'd understand. Yod@ modded my dc sticks so they'd work on my xbox, and I just have to say that, dear god this is fab. Vertical shooters are about a million times easier to play (1942 & raiden ) , proper SF2 turbo arcade. ..christ on bike its just fabulous. At the moment Im trying to play last blade and its just so "nice". Dont knwo why playing with proper sticks is so much better but it is, the only thing that could be better than this is a jamma cab or an neo geo.....but i could nt really justify owning either of those now that I have this lot. Actuallly come to think of it the only thing that would make this better is if Snk/playmore released a fighters collection with live support....... Oh yeah and cheers yod@
  8. Do you reckon the reason futurama didnt catch on was because it was kind of geeky / quirky? Dont get me wrong I love it, and each episode gets funnier the more I watch it but do think there is a problem with not being able to relate to the characters like you can in the simpsons. Bender is the best character since homer simpson, no actually that would be Dean Learner from Garth Marengi's dark place.
  9. Yeah i had last blade 2 for dc. Just got my two dc sticks gutted to work on my xbox, can play neo geo games on kawa x. i love garou mark of the wolves but i cant get in to last blade at all, can you give me any pointers on how to approach it?
  10. Beware: I got one of those ps2 to pc convertors and they seem to work fine, however they is an un-noticable delay that makes special moves in sf2 near impossible. This only happens on some peoples PCs not everyones. I ve looked for a fix for this but cant find one.
  11. Hi, After getting my dc sticks modded so that work on my xbox I ve taken a shine to samurai shodown 1, the music alone is fab. Anyway which one is the best version of the game out of 1234or 5, i heard games tm slated five. What is the relation between sam sho and last blade?
  12. best advertising ever! tell me more!
  13. I wish i had time to play on live. And since i never play on live im afraid that im to crap.
  14. please stop with the dollar signs
  15. what the fuck is that all about, it makes no sense what so ever!
  16. could you give me a link please to both those goldeneye maps i can only find the complex one on google. Is their a facility one?

  18. eye toy. Arguable the most important console doo daa in a long time. P.S someone may have already mentioned this: i could be assed reading the last few pages
  19. You've been playing too many Japanese games. No ive just been drinking. Dam That truely is one of the stupidist things i have written
  20. You are an idiot. You play games for fun. Nintendo make games for profit. Fact. If you believe otherwise you are naive. edit: the above has been edited becuase of my stupidity i orginally wrote "you are idiot" please feel free to take the piss
  21. fuck shit cunt bastard i knew i should have bought that!!!
  22. The company should sue sony for libel (spelling?) for saying they are selling a dangerous product. The cheek!
  23. I think thats the kind ofthing you hide from your mates. Mine wouldnt talk to me again if they found out Id spent that on a game. Actually im sure youd have to be a complete knob to spend that on a game.
  24. Whydo you think any company exists? It is to make money (unless they are a charity) Microsoft and sony arent investing in online games out of the goodness of their heart, its becuase they reckon that in the future they can make money from it. The main aim of these companies is to maximise shareholder profits, so the shareholders elect a management team to run the company, the managements objective is make money for the shareholders. The shareholders put their faith in the management to make good decisions that will make them profits. Nintendos management have looked at online gaming and decided that it is safer to wait. it does not matter what we think, unless it damages profits. And the take up of console online gaming has been slow at best so why should nintendo invest in it? Its not up to us.
