How to become a game tester

22 Jul

For you gamers out there , look at all the games that’s coming out in 2011 . Modern War-fare 3 , Battlefield 3 , Uncharted 3 , and not to mention Elder Scrolls . You would love to pursue a carreer of testing out those games first hand right?

Testing games sounds like an easy job right ? It actually is not quite easy in my honest opinion unless you have the hobby to find glitches within game. To be a game tester requires lots of thinking. You could ask MapMonkey’s and they would say it’s not quite of an easy job yet it is time consuming. Being a game tester needs creativity . When you see glitchers get out of a map , they seem to go from one place to another with alot of algorithms. Each step is key to finding the glitches within a game.

There’s many gamers out there that would love to stick their hands on to a game testing career.But it’s not easy giving the fact that gamers are growing by millions every day . At a statistical rate game testers are paid more than 50,000 per years for just.

To be accepted in big industries as a game tester you must be able to know what the company is looking for , such as your thought skills and your love for gaming . The great thing is you don’t have to be 18 to get paid to test games you could be 16 and test games for these huge companies . The good thing about game testing is that it’s
growing. Public Beta’s are no longer existing because it takes alot of money to make a public better , that means that there’s a growth for game testing jobs.

When interviewed by a game developer you should look and sound enthusiastic like any other job you are applaying for . Game developers are people like you , they love a social person , but as they are looking at your personality , they will also be looking
for the skills you hold as a game tester and will print out a list of bug reports, and ask you to go over them, tell them which ones might be the same bug, which descriptions aren’t good enough, etc, depending on the interviewer. When testing the game don’t expect it to be playing and judging whether you like it or not , that job is for the public and the media . Your job is to find glitches and bugs within the game and report it to the developer who shall
then fix the bug .

I hope that this information is helpful for you , and I hope that you will use it as a valuable source a take it insite . If you are really pursuing game testing as a carreer that you would like to try out , I recommend getting this book as an official guide to being a game tester. It has 5 parts that will explain and prepare you almost everything about being a game tester . As a reviewer of this product I would give it a 7/10 in preparing you for a game testing career. The price is not too expensive nor is it too cheap . It’s about $40 , but would I suggest you to buy it ? Well we have to look at the terms . If you are definately pursuing a game testing career I suggest you getting this book as a preparation for game testing , but if you still are unsure of what carreer you are going to take for the future , I still think $40 is expensive , and you shouldn’t waste your money countless on something you’re not going to use for long term effects. Check out Become a Game Tester by clicking here.

22 Jul

Sometimes computers can be a pain in the a** . It freezes up on you when you never expected and it slows down when you are trying to do high priority work . Well there’s a way to fix your computer and make it a bit faster than it was before.

When cleaning up computers you need to know what you need and what you don’t need . It’s called organization. Try to organize all of your files into folders. This allows your program to locate through your computer at ease , which is a good thing . If you don’t know how to make a new fold right click with your mouse , highlight new and click on folder.Now to lable these folders , right click and click on rename.

Another way to have your computer process a system faster is to go on the start menu , click on accessories , then go to system tools and click on System Defragmenter . System Defragmentor is a free software that comes with your computer that allows the program to clean and reorganize your system up a little bit so it can run a little bit faster . In the system tools folder there is also another program that cleans your disk for you. The program is called disk cleaner .Disk Cleaners finds the files that seems unnecessary such as cookies and internet history , and allows you the option to delete them or keep them .
Extra Hint: You can also hitting ctrl+shift+Esc to bring up Window’s Task Manager . Once the window opens ,click on Processes , find the name of the program you are working on such as Google Chrome , right click it , highlight set priority , and click on Real Time . This allows the computer to allow the program to work faster and more smooth than before , by using most of your computer’s resources .

If all else fails , just try to restore your computer.

Or You could try a software that I have personally downloaded. It’s called registery easy cleaner . The Registery easy cleaner can be very helpful at times and it’s free . It scans and fixes errors that your computer may have been experiencing . When it comes to repairs , the Registery Easy Cleaner allows more than 1 type of repair for your computer . As a free product , I would give it an 8/10 , and would reccomend you to download it . 2 points for the 10was that because the program can take a while to fix your computer . Hopefully the new would be faster and less time consuming , but hey you can still work on your computer while the program is repairing your computer, so that’s a good thing .  Feel free to check out the registry easy cleaner.
