MCV 5s – Get in there!

The World Cup was marred with characteristically English underperformance. We came, we saw, we went home again without a win or a hint of glory. When the Testology Forest (don’t ask…) team ventured to Barnet on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, we were determined to outdo the England lads’ results. Granted, it was the MCV 5s [...]

However, there’s a bigger tournament on the horizon that promises drama on a scale the footballing world has never before seen – MCV [...]

INTERVIEW WITH A POKEMON CHAMPION

Pokémon X or Y? X Y? Because I knew everyone else would buy Y. How many hours have you clocked up on Pokémon on your 3DS? Around 100 hours, haven’t played since the tourney though. How does it feel to be Testology Pokémon Champion and would you describe Pokémon champion-dom as your destiny? It feels [...]

NORDIC GAME 2014 CONFERENCE – OUR WEEK THERE

WE WENT AIRSOFTING. IT HURT.

So, as a company, we like to engage in social activities that solidify the spirit of teamwork and rouse the supremacy of camaraderie. This weekend we achieved this by shooting other people and, in one particular instance, Matthew Spencer, each other. There’s been somewhat of a buzz surrounding the magic of airsoft throughout the office. [...]

DEVELOP AWARDS 2014

After winning the award for “Services” in 2010, we keep an excited watch on our inboxes for the yearly nominee announcements for the Develop Awards. 2014 sees the introduction of a new category, “QA & Localisation”. Now, this particular category befits our God-given testing panache more exactly than the previous, more general, category of “Services” [...]

JACKIE REDMOND WALKS THE WALK… FOR CHARITY

We would all like to think of ourselves as good Human Beings who contribute selflessly to the betterment and well-being of our species and, less generally, our immediate society. However, it takes much commitment, grit, and determination to actively pursue this charitable sentiment. Jackie Redmond is no ordinary accountant. Not only is she a Testologer, [...]

THE NORDIC GAME 2014 CONFERENCE

In truly unforgiving fashion, the relentlessness of time has ticked and ticked with a sneak and a shuffle and we find ourselves making plans for one of our favourite conferences of the Nordic Game variety - The Nordic Game 2014 Conference. The [...]

SUPERMASSIVE CHARITY TOURNAMENT

The Supermassive gaming nights are symbolic of man’s inherently charitable nature and subsequent willingness to contribute positively to our shared human community. However, it’s also symbolic of man’s desire to crush those who stand between he and a giant, inflatable trophy of glorious magnitude. In fact, it’s worth noting that the true gloriousness of this [...]

A NIGHT OF GAMING – PRE-WORKOUT ANALYSIS

The evening of Friday 2nd May has come. Legend spoke of this date and the ethereal influence it would have on our lives. In scriptures older than Stevie Lawrie, it was written that 020514 is the number of the Fun-God, Rupert. Rupert ruled the heavens with a gleeful gait and a love for all things [...]

SOCIAL FUN WITH LOTS OF HAPPINESS

This is the quick-fire round of journal postings. This is the round where I “tappety tap” on my keyboard at ferocious speeds to replicate the dynamism of a Testology contractors’ social life. In that case, I better slow down somewhat… to about 2.6 words per minute. In all seriousness, though, the frequency of social life [...]

POKEMON. IS IT YOUR DESTINY?

Man has often wondered of immortalisation and the possibilities of agelessness in a world of deathly certainty. Man has grappled with his own personal conceptualisation of death and the unknown abyss of time without consciousness. Man has struggled to assure an eternal legacy that continues beyond his final breath. We have man’s answer. Pokémon tournament! [...]
