Well, I've already worked for them, but that was six years ago as a third-party employment situation through Apple One employment. Now, at least, I'm working for them directly, but still in a temporary capacity.

Who is this company?

Activision | Blizzard.

And as a new hire gift, I got a free year subscription to World of Warcraft. I don't play, I don't have a desire to play, and all of my compies can't handle it (they're all work-specific machines or UNIX-based), so I'm left with the dilemma of who to give a whole year of free subscription on WoW.

It's a weird dilemma, but I'll figure it out. I just don't want the gift to be wasted on people that just want to try it out. Because, what if you don't like it? That's a wasted free year.

Anywho, as usual, I cannot really say what game I'm working on or which platform, but I am going to an Activision | Blizzard E3 Launch Party on Monday night at Staples Center in LA. Couldn't actually make it to E3 this year, but perhaps next year. After all, I still qualify for entry as a video games and entertainment media professional.

So, I can buy up to 25 Activision | Blizzard titles at a discount from the company store after 30 days of employment, per year, and am eligible for two free games after 90 days of employment. I forgot to get my free games the first time around, six years ago, so I'm probably not going to forget this time.

And it is a paltry income compared to what I used to earn, but job is job. I'd rather be working than not working. Even though I will be earning less per week than what I get on unemployment, but it looks better on the resume to be actually working. And, I'll be the envy of all the beginning Game Art & Design students. I know it's a job, and I've been doing QA things for six years, so I'm well-versed in my industry. It's just been a long time since I tested anything on the console/PC side.

If nothing else, this will be fun, and free soda.

That job sounds amazing, man. Let us know what game you start working on when you find out xD What exactly are you doing there? Designing backgrounds? Characters?

As for me, I am still jobless

I know what game I'm working on, but there's a thing in the adult world called a Non-Disclosure Agreement, so I can't tell you what I'm working on or what system it's for.

And Night Shift Quality Assurance. I'm a tester, basically. Going back to my roots because my specialized work background isn't hiring right now.

Well, yes, but more specifically it's BREW/J2ME/Android/iPhone/Blackberry Mobile Device Quality Assurance Test Engineer and Spanish/French Localization and Internationalization.

TSA skills are a different specialty.

Nope, Mobile QA suffices. That's just incredibly specific in case someone wants to know specifically what mobile I've done.

And Localization/Internationalization abbreviates to L10N and I18N in the industry.

She said 'was'. I assumed that meant in the past, as she used past tense.

Lost in the semantics. Her prior job was mentioned, not her current jeaorb. She'd have to clarify that in a reply or another thread, because this thread is ALL ABOUT ME! [end tantrum]

Okay, I'm good.

Shit.

That's awesome, man.

Yes, I've downgraded to simple, caveman speech. It's reserved for when I REALLY think something is cool.

I know you can't say what title you're working on NOW, but as soon as you can, PLEASE do so. Odds are, I'll be selling it in my store, and I would very proudly sell/promote it. Even if it's WoW. I'm not a WoW fan, to tell you the truth. Mainly for the reasons you stated. I don't have the computer for it, the money to aquire said computer, or the patience to play as a lvl 1, or whatever, while everyone else is at the lvl cap, and killing me all the time. And I'd rather play other games. Simple as that. XD But you said Activision as well...so I know WoW isn't the only possible title you could be working on.

In any case, I'm very, VERY excited for you and I wish you all the luck in the world with this.

I don't work for the Blizzard division. It's Activision side, so it'll be an Activision title. Which means, my name will be in the credits again!

Developer History for me on Moby Games. They compile this, I don't create it.

Yep. I also get a free copy of each game I work on, so I have THAW and Ultimate Spiderman. I don't play them often, but at least I have them.

Frame 'em or something.

That's epic, man. Although, I DID threaten to beat a kid with an Ultimate Spiderman case... Does that count as homage? I was angry and disgruntled about it too. Just how you like it. Angry and disgruntled.
