Current employee is right on. The problems Sensory Sweep has are directly
connected to a Wall Street Bankruptcy.
Whoever filed the lawsuit did the remaining employees a service. It got the
Dept. of Labor involved. Their biggest concern is that current employees get
paid. Once they're caught up, THEN the past employees will get theirs. If any
of the X-sweep guys want to get paid, they should stop trying to bring down the
company. If SS goes completely bankrupt, you won't get anything, and neither
will anyone else. And "concerned", I graduated Cum Laude with a
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. I have a family, and I also love video
games.To "thinkin": You are what's wrong with America. You don't
understand how freedom of speech works. The problem is not that there is
violence in video games. The problem is that parents and stores are not doing
enough to keep M rated games (suitable for 17+) out of the hands of children. R
rated movies have violence too, but kids aren't supposed to see them. Parents
have to do their part if freedom of speech is to be preserved. You can't let
the government tell us what media we can and can't see. Ever been to China?
yes, i need to go back to school to learn a few things . like spelling! i miss
spelled there, should be "their children". It doesnt take any degree to know
that children learn what they live.
well, I respect those people who make some of these video games!Only The games
fit for children! I believe that theres to much violent games being made that
show our children how to kill and harm. "Shame" on every single one of YOU
parents that allow there children to use these games as entertainment! THINK
I was laid off from Sensory Sweep last November. They currently owe me 3
paychecks, and just as much in overtime (several 60 and 80 hour weeks adds up).
After checking with them recently they have again told me that I will get paid
when they are on their feet.Concerned Friend, the video games
industry is indeed hard work. I have a bachelors degree in Mathematics, and
programmed physics and game logic into what I was working on. It takes a long
time before the game is even playable.
Have you ever worked in a video game job "concerned"? It is real work, and you
end up working until the "wee" hours of the night on a salary, which translates
into, once eight hours is up, your on free time. Why do we do it, because we're
hoping to put out that game that we can be proud of to attach our name to.Unfortunately, at Sensory Sweep, that never happened, and twice I worked on
projects that got canceled.Don't make blanket statements about an industry
you obviously don't understand by what you said.We work, we work hard and
some people do go home after a long hard day at work and play games or hang out
with their family and friends, but we work and the job isn't for everybody.Just learn more about the industry before you assume we are all a bunch of
high school dropouts with no college degrees, because your wrong.
