You worked in the gaming industry? O.O

I've heard horror stories of its slave-driving nature. Good that you got out of there when you did, then.

Always ironic that creation process of a product meant to entertain is completely unentertaining.

No.

You get paid to play broken video games and take meticulous notes; and in the two weeks before the game ships, you're expected to be there for 20 hours out of 24 in a day.

Other jobs aren't quite so bad, but crunch-time still makes your life go away.
As I hear it, when it comes to crunch-time, it's life-sapping all across the board, no matter the department...

Don't let our ramblings stop you. If you are able to, by all means, experience it and decide for yourself.

(That might come across as sounding slightly malicious, but for the record, it wasn't.)

The answer!






• Either Arnval rolled a 1 on her listening check, or Devs rolled a natural 20 on sneak...
• The shaggy looking teddy bear and its origins will be explained at some point.
• In Fisto? Really, Devs?
• These shots were a freakin’ pain to take. Dark, close up floor shots in tight spaces, and the nature of the shots did not allow for much use of a tripod... >_< Coolhand, Pol and CI seem to thrive on these kinda shots though...

^On a stick!^

Devs seems to be a bit brutal than he usually is. I guess being shot twice does that to a person/bot .

Jeez, Devy, do you really have to be such an ass-*F-bomb*!? No wonder Arnval thought he's the harbinger of death...

Well, that's some surprising character development with Arnval. Devastator reminds me of those punks whom always say they're only out for their own yet can't help but come to the assistance of others.

Nuh-uh! YOU wrote that in. No blaming Devs this time.

Anyway, nice update. Devastator was coming off pretty harsh, there. Except for the fact that he's naturally a Decepticon and acts the part, so it isn't so much odd for him to respond that way. But yeah, as mentioned, you get the sense that he WANTS to be the tough one that happens through, but he keeps doing the right thing anyway.

On that note, I love the last shot of him walking away (second-last panel). Really shows off the articulation of that set.
