I was -9 and off the charts. Astigmatic in both eyes too.  I was a mess.

If you don't mind me asking, how much does Lasik cost these days?

It's pretty cheap at Costco, and you can return your eyes if they mess it up!!   thumbsup

Winnar!

I had mine done in February.  That thread is the saga leading up to and after.

I was on the high end of -9 and am now seeing 20/20 in my left and 20/25 in my right.

Side effects: halos at night (not terrible) and when the seasons change I need lubricating drops.

Cost: 2650 per eye for me.

WOuld have been worth it at double the cost. I now have movie star good looks. thumbsup

BULLY!  This is my first PS2 day one purchase.  Please don't turn out to be a bad game!

1up Yours Podcast seemed to be glowing about it.  Can't wait for it.

Have had it as my background on my PC since forever.

13851  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ideal Game Length For You? on: October 16, 2006, 10:10:37 AM
Might should be in general gaming, but...

What's your ideal game length? 

Based on a comment by Kevin Grey in some thread somewhere and listening to an old 1up Yours podcast, the topic has been on my brain.

There are many variables to consider 10 hrs of genius is better than 30 hrs of crap. Additionally there's cost to time played ratio, but if you parse it down to what your schedule is, your RL commitments, etc,  overall what's your ideal length for a game.

I'll stick to what I replied to KG and go with 11-20 leaning toward the upper end of that range as a game of that length, unless I stay up late and neglect sleep, will last me weeks and weeks.  20 to 30 hr games also fit within the sweet spot. 
13852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: One Game At a Time: My Xbox 360 Purchasing Rule with Contest on: October 16, 2006, 10:00:36 AM
Update:

Well, instead of waiting around on Amazon, I jumped on the 360+3 games for 459.00 shipped from outpost.

I'm planning on selling Saint's Row and Test Drive Unlimited on Ebay and making Dead Rising my first 'next gen' experience.

Hopefully, I'll find time to have it done by GoW's release date.
13853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Recap 16/Oct/06 on: October 16, 2006, 09:52:07 AM
For me, it was a pretty good gaming weekend. I got about 3 hours of Killer 7 in.  I also watched the first cutscene that really truly bothered me.

This game is whacked, but unique and that's why I'll keep going.

MDK is pretty unusual.  What an underappreciated series that was.  I wish they'd make a third.
13856  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: John Woo's presents Stranglehold on: October 16, 2006, 12:00:54 AM
Hard Boiled is a great movie. The gunfight throughout the hallways of that one place (spoiler free!) is an epic example of action, special effects and camera work.

13857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 warranty -- worth it? on: October 15, 2006, 11:59:52 PM

I've also gotten the itch to dig up Metal Arms from my box of oldies and give it a try on the 360. 


One of my favorite games this generation. If you haven't played it at all, you're in for a treat. The humor is awesome, the gameplay is nice and varied and the levels are a hoot.

Huzzah for you!

Certainly not as slick as the 360, but people need to keep in mind that the reason the buttons are so big is because you will be using the wiimote to navigate.

Why do the buttons need to be big, I thought the WiiMote was gonna be super sensitive?

Ease of use?

Clint Eastwood interviewed by USAToday. He says some pretty profound stuff and comes across as a wizened veteran of life.

It's a good read.

With the old software there was a bar stating your box is x of y full.  When it hit 100 you were basically hosed.

Are there limits on the new ones? I have lotso messages but haven't seen a status yet saying I'm nearing critical message overloadzorz!

Halp?

Wombat on the Cagcast had enormous difficulties (not as bad as you) and he basically got to the point where he called in and said "I want free stuff.' and they gave him a choice of PGR3 or Kameo.

Time to make some noise Arkon.
13880  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Gamers with families, how do you manage playing time on: October 13, 2006, 10:47:20 AM
I'd say I probably play between 3-8 hrs a week.  Most of that time is on the DS during visits to the library, but I can usually sneak in an hour here and there on a consle after the kids have gone to bed.

I used to get almost all of my gaming time in on Friday and Saturday nights when I'd stay up until 1 AM or so (I know crazy late!). However, I'm not able to stay up late on the weekends and game right now due to marathon training (what was I thinking...again?!) but that ends at the end of the month.

We're not big tv people either- our totals this week are in the neighborhood of 6-7 hours so I don't lose much time to that.

My time is so limited and I have such a backlog, I don't know why I'm even getting a 360...
