I'm a video game Quality Assurance Tester by profession and generally critical thinker by inclination. I've tested at Atari, Toys For Bob, Leapfrog, Intific Inc (formerly Total Immersion Software), and Zynga. When playing for fun I lean towards strategy, FPS, and third-person adventure games. 2nd Gen lifelong gamer; my parents took me to my first gaming convention when I was just a month old, and it never really stopped. Saw the Rogue Trader BRB when I was twelve and was instantly jump-started into heavy metal puberty. Result: permanent 40K fanboy.
I was there when this went down. It's all true, except it actually happened in Fall, not Spring.
