The team from Jumpgate Evolution has updae3d their official MMORPG.com blog. Today, the update fromes from QA tester Stephen justice as he talks about Breaking Jumpgate Evolution.
Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Stephen Justice and I have the privilege of being a QA tester on Jumpgate Evolution. This is the first project I’ve worked on here at NetDevil. My previous experience comes from working at a third-party testing studio where I had the chance to test on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, DS, Gameboy Advance, PlayStation Portable and PC.
Before we begin, I feel the need to deal with a phrase that greatly irritates me as a tester. It’s that annoying phrase “paid-to-play”. I will state quite clearly that I do not spend my days playing, I spend them testing. The difference is if I’m playing a game then I’m playing through it as any other person would. When I’m testing I’ll play the game wrong. I’ll try to reach areas I shouldn’t be in, fly through walls, fall through floors, make textures vanish, cause physics to freak out, watch meshes collapse and (my personal favorite) cause the game to crash.
