‘Disposition, Reflection, Triad’ by Tool is my new jam.
The 50 Most Frustrating Moments In Videogames
All water levels!
YESSS! Jeff Rubin, you couldn’t have said it better.
Game jams are one place to go to if you want to feel passionate about games again, and you need less technical know-how than you think to get started. Jamming cured me of my winter doldrums and made me excited about games all over again; it’s another way to join the conversation, and you may find that you never want to stop talking.
I also recommend game jams for a great way to test out collaborating with some new folks. The stakes aren’t very high, and you can easily figure out if you work well together.
I exported this at 75% size, so hopefully this doesn’t turn out too blurry or anything. ALSO, the trial has the words DEMO across it, so don’t expect to use it for published videos. :(

But it takes more than care to pull together an elaborate story that draws players into the game and keeps them there. Video games are often made by teams of writers, designers, programmers, artists and producers, but there’s an important role that is often over-looked, forgotten and, in some studios, non-existent. It’s the person who reads through every line of text in the game. It’s the person who looks at all 600+ variables to ensure everything fits together and flows seamlessly. It’s the person who makes sure that Shepard sounds like Shepard and, based on the player’s particular interactions within the game, the player’s Shepard sounds like the player’s Shepard. It’s the editor.
I like the term “editor” better than anything related to QA. I still think “banging on the app” when I think of QA; with editor, it’s like they’re actively keeping the bad out of whatever software system they’re responsible for.
