I've beta tested games like "No Greater Glory", "Medieval Lords", "Battles of Napoleon", "Champions of Kyrnn", "Death Knights of Krynn" and "Dark Queen of Krynn" and some MMORPG's.
I have a library of games that would make a poor man cry. I've been playing all types of computer games since 1982 with "Knights of the Desert" on cassette tape for the Commodore 64 being my first one. I have practically every SSI wargame and rpg game they made even if I wasn't a beta tester I still bought and collected and played the SSI series of games. My Matrixgames library includes "Forge of Freedom", "Advanced Tactics", "Panzer Command:Winter Storm", "Panzer Command:Kharkov", "Tin Soldiers:Julius Caesar", "Highway to the Reich", "Conquest of the Agean", "Conquest:Medieval", "Spartan" and "Reach for the Stars".
I've been told by game developers that I have great attention to detail when describing bugs and how I found them. As I actually look for bugs I don't apply just to play a game for free (like most do). I don't apply just to get a free game, I apply to try to make sure customers don't get games like HOI III and more recently Making History II out of the box. I'm very selective about what games I apply to beta test also.
I would be interested in the Ancients game as that is my favorite era of war history and can give it 8-10 hours a week of testing when I'm off work. I would probably give more, but, to be fair there will be other new games coming out I want to play as well like Stardocks "Elemental".
My system specs are Vista 64 service pak 2, an I7 920 PC with 3gb ddr3 memory (working on getting 6gb), an ATI 5770 video card with 1gb memory, and a 25" 2ms Hann monitor. My very own gaming room with no kids, no dogs, no cats, no wife and a window air conditioned atmosphere where my systems are cooler than ice blue coors lite (which I drink while relaxing and playing). I can also test this on my Netbook to see if it's compatible with XP and a 1.6ghz system with only 1gb of memory. It also has a screen resolution of 1024x600 and making a game fit to that screen should be a priority as well as normal pc monitor resolutions as the netbook is becoming more and more popular.
You can send me a PM if YOU are interested in my excellent beta talents and system setup(s).
My slogan: I beta test to make your job easier and your pockets richer.
