    @paolo, the gaming stuff near masa are mainly dev kits or test kits, its for us to playtest builds before sending patches out later. we dont use them for leisure, however we do have sets in our pantry/rest areas

    I'm a programmer in the United States. I thought it strange they are required to clock in and out if they are salaried. Though some businesses here require employees to swipe their access card both when arriving and leaving so the employer could figure the time from that.

    By the sheer amount of girl dolls and robots, and I love Gundam too, but this guy needs a girlfriend ASAP.
    Does Tinder exist on Japan? Or Japanese people use some other app or website?

    So I know Paolo more than likely isnt a gamer, but just so you know bro, playtesting games is more technical and tedious, than it is entertaining (unless your starting a newer title)
    It's all fun n games until you playtest dark souls bosses

    When you enter Yahoo Japan and get to the point where you can comment through reading Japanese news articles, you become a master of Japanese language.

    Reading news articles and posting comments in Japanese are also possible with long hard work.

    Isn't it fun to comment on your position in a news article and test the Japanese response to whether the Japanese press the recommendation button or the opposite button?
