*update* Take a look at some of the pictures again

With things being rather quite on the AoM front this week, I've had some opportunity to take care of basic body functions -- like eating, sleeping, peeing, or writing beta test guides .

Smileyshelper, said to me last night "When that game comes out I will have no more life." Yup. The bad news? Aom is still a good 8 months away from release!. The better news? That gives you plenty of time to prepare!

Steps You Can Take To Ensure You Can Devote Your Life to AoM :

· Invest in Property. Let's face it, rent is expensive, and paying rent each month might require strenuous time-wasters like employment. Shop around for the cheapest property available that's still within the range of broadband services. Basically, your ideal setup is a cabin in the woods with a DSL line or something. This will be known as your "Bunker." Try to pay off your bunker's mortgage before the game goes gold.


As you can see, The old ES offices serve a good example of what I'm talking about

· Stock Up On Ramen Noodles / Canned Food. You know, for just a 5 dollars a day you can buy 620 packets of Ramen Noodles in a month. Consider it a down payment. Start putting that money down today. By the time AoM is released, you could have up to -- what's 8 x 620? That's right, 4,960 packets of Ramen Noodles on hand. Life suddenly got simpler.

Another hot tip: Get a rice cooker.


Mmmm.....Chicken Flavour

· Keep in Mind ... that the human body can sustain itself on dry cat food alone for many many weeks. Just a thought.


Yep, you guessed it, Chicken Flavour!

· Become a Kept Man / Woman. First, it's necessary to explain to your spouse/children that your days of loving and attentitiveness are over. Explain that they now wear the pants in the family. Remind him/her of vows to take care of you. Alternatively, simply find a rich partner and sell your body for the cost of monthly fees and broadband access. (This, by the way, is how I got my job.)


Hey, doesn't that guy look a lot like Ian Fischer?

So there you have it. Your road to years of uninterrupted AoM goodness! Eight Months from now you'll be happy and content sitting at your PC, living in a log cabin in the boonies living as a prostitute and eating cat food to stay alive, and you'll have me to thank.

Oh, and this post as actually been a top secret cover-up to ask that ES make the beta test signups international. So,

ES, please make the beta signups international

You see Cobra, when I say nice from a break from your usual seriousness, that means that the post was not serious. Hopefully there was some misunderstanding there, cuz it sounds sort of strange for you to be quoting me to disagree, when I really am saying the same thing...

Oh well, who cares? Funny post anyway :P
