OK.... I'm pretty sure I've heard almost every game studio say they have that same kind of lab. So why is this news?

@SnarlingWolf In part this is a non-news article, since "Carbine Conducts User Testing!" shouldn't be a particularly groundbreaking piece of information. It is a way of keeping Carbine's name floating around without having to release actual information on their title.

However, user testing is a good thing for Carbine to be doing, particularly if they are watching the recordings and making changes based on where players struggle. It certainly is better being done in pre-alpha rather than waiting for beta to come along and then trying to conduct user testing, balance and bug fixing at the same time.

Insert "Lab Rats" wherever the word "Players" are mentioned and you get some funky, weird imagery going on! ;P

It's nice to have such "on-hands" testing, but the lack of info is all so vague... it feels like something out of a fiction novel! ;P
