    Step 4: Alpha-Beta

    You know the games. You know the games that crash when you open them and you know what to do with them. Or do you? Alpha and Beta games(which are appearing more and more on the PC) are not finished games. They are works-in-progress. (Quake 3 is beta, so you can try it, but do not be suprised if its slow, wont work, etc.) See, when the Alpha/Beta game called Sonic 4 has the guy moving TOWARD the Grim Reaper, something is terriably wrong. This is the stage which shows the problems with the game, and where they are fixed. Some don't, however..........(Pokemon----Missing NO :))
    You know your cheats? Theyre NOT bugs. They were put in there for Alpha/Beta testers to use so they don't have to master the game. Sometimes, these codes aren't removed, and we have "easter eggs" as a result.
