I can imagine with these projects, there would be severe consequences for leaking the smallest detail.
completely! no one thinks of the bad side when you hear "games tester required"
I was thinking about applying, moving to Scotland for a bit, but with all i'm not really sure I could handle the job, I don't wanna be sick of playing games... And I am pretty sure I would rather see the finished version of GTAIV from the comfort of my own home rather than a in work process..
