First episode came out today. It's free. Gonna check it out.
I think its stupid, but Im kinda interested just to see how bad it is.
Out, looks stupid as shit
it's hella stupid
here's one with the names
haha that girl star was in the ultimate gamer as a rockband pro
fame girl lol
fuck me. i didn't look down let me go delete my thread.
Barmy is a creepy fuck. I wish I would have known they were doing this I would have applied. I would have rocked that shit, though I'm not sure if I'd want to be a tester it would possibly make me hate video games having to go through shitty games and pick apart the glitches.
Who in their right mind would pay to watch a reality show anyway?
need more pics of red-haired host chick.
they are competing for a 9/hr job that is easy as fuck to get into
fame girl does it for fame!
Never heard of a famous game tester before.
Wow, that about sums up my year there after being laid-off from a "real" testing job I had for 4 years. Except replace "nutrient-rich sludge" with "fat hairy nerds that haven't showered in months". Oh and his cubicle looks too big there, you're supposed to share it with two other stinky guys. (I shared it with a girl and we're still friends 10 years later so that's one good thing I got out of it). Bug reports were sent in regularly but the devs don't communicate/share their database with us so we don't know what was fixed or not, meaning every fucking thing had to be re-tested every single time we got a build; sometimes we'd get builds twice or three times a day. Unorganized as hell, a far departure from the other big companies I worked for before that. Maybe they've changed, maybe not.
Demo discs for 10hrs/day =
So anyway, how's the show?
It's alright if you like Reality Show Competitions. You could take it more seriously if they didn't Hal Sparks as a judge.
So what are the test or events they go through to get eliminated?
things COMPLETELY unrelated to the job itself
such as ROLL AROUND IN A BIG FUCKING BALL hamster style
It entertained me. It's as bad as I was expecting it to be.
It's reality TV alright!
So it will get picked up and aired by VH1 or something.
I don't think a lot of people realize how much of a JOB being a professional beta tester really is. They just think "Oh snap, I get to play video games all day?!"
Same with game reviewers. I met so many people who were like "Dude, it would be so awesome to review games. Gettin' paid to play games all day man!"
Yeah, except you couldn't pass 10th grade English, so good luck with that.
Wow... a reward from a reality show that's actually more demeaning than competing in the show itself.
First episode had them sit in a chair and pick out the difference between pairs of pictures with a time limit of 90 seconds.
Second episode has 2 people rolling around in rubber "hamster balls" while a third gives audible directions in order to have the people in the ball roll over a pylon.
There's no real video game challenges from what I've seen so far.
