So I still haven't heard anything about that Lover's Package job. I will be calling over there to ask them about it.
I did take advantage of this, though. It sounds like an interesting opportunity. I've had several chances to playtest before and just missed it because of one reason or another. I talked to the lady there and now I've got plans this weekend.
Speaking of plans this weekend, I'm also going to be house sitting for my sister. That's always a nice escape from the house and I get a bit of money for that, too. So after this weekend, I should have a little bit of money.

Now I've got the midweek blues. I don't have anything to do.

it's fun- i've been doing it for a few weeks- the team I was on was sporadic, but some folk have been there consistently for 2 months now. last session was pure gameplay. play, look for lockups, swap games every hour.

Perhaps a stupid question, but how does one get into the whole beta testing business? I play a lot of games.. What kind of skills/schooling , etc do you need to have? And do you have to live in the city where the company is?
(meanwhile i shall mosy on over to some of the websites and see what they say)

Um.. well, I know some places like people to have prior testing experience, but in this particular case, I just happened to hear about it at the right time. The only requirement for this seemed to be that people wanted to play video games.
I do beleive it helps to be near the company you are testing for, if for no other reason then to be able to go to their offices and work there.
