    Sorry to hear that comrade. Hope you bounce back soon!

    Your reviews are good to read. Nice and flowing, and they sum up the game well. You add a little personal element to every one too, which I find a nice touch. Have you not approached the game critic path? I suupose it's hard to find a starting point?

    Either way! Write about something, you're good! And you have a nice, full vocabulary unlike myself and a few others I know ;)

    As for the immediate future, relax for a week man! Just chill and reset yourself (I'm assuming you dont need money like...now). Enjoy gaming 8 hours a day!

    I appreciate the compliments! =)

    Well, since about early 2008 I've been QA'ing for two different companies, and I wouldn't mind going down the reviewing path; but like anything game-related in the business industry: It's gonna be a B to get into, though I wouldn't know the first place to start...

    you and me both, brother....believe me ive been trying for two years now, following leads and making myself known.

    But I do hope to see you in the Vox Pop more often, and more reviews....to be honest you do post the best user reviews on the website, and I do sincerely mean that.

    Bullshit. They have to give you a reason. I think you just don't want to tell us what you did.

    Have you thought about just getting a part time job as a teacher's aide for working with kids with autism,r becoming a part time job as a therapist that does one on one with children with autism to get experience? That's actually what I'm currently doing in addition to a retail job.

    I've always 'oh so loved' your sarcasm boy.

    Truly reminds me of your father.

    Whats left of him.

    In the basement.

    Somewhere.

    Their reason: "Complaints from other Developers."

    I'm going back today to actually understand what I did wrong, since that's all they told me.

    I got fired from a job when I was 19(in 1996). I would stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning getting drunk and stoned, then get up at 5 to go to work. I would always show up late, and eventually I got axed. That was the one and only time I got fired.

    Thing is, I was never late. I had a co-worker be late 30min twice and 45min twice and he got a warning.

    So I'm confused. lol
