How long has it been since I posted last? I think it was back when I failed to make some macaroni. So much for weekly posts. Gee, y’know, I’d feel really bad if I thought anybody was really reading this thing. Anyway, on to the topic at hand. Oh, and sorry about any typos. I’m writing on my phone. Combine a 2 inch touchscreen with s phone’s autocorrect. Anyway, just bear with me.
So, about a month or so ago, I got a PS3. The PS4 is coming out over the next year, so it wad about time to upgrade. I usually stay one generation behind. Now, the only problem with a game console being one’s newest piece of tech, is the console being the newest piece of tech. In my home, the livingroom tv is actually used for watching tv. Weird, I know, so my bedroom doubles as the gaming room, which isn’t bad, but I have a lot of shot glittering up the place, so I have to sit on the bed while playing a game. Not the most comfortable setup, but nit the worst either.
It does get worse, though. My tv, which I’ve had for ages, is a 12 inch CRT. That was fine for ps2, but everything is HD now, and that screen was too small and unfocused. If you don’t know what I mean, play Ninja Storm on a small sdtv. The map is impossible to read on that screen.
Anyway, I finally upgraded to a shiny new led screen. 23.6 Inches. I have to admit, it looks a lot bigger than it did in the shop. They must intentionally dwarf screen sizes by sticking them next to the big screens au people will spend more money and get a bigger size than they really need. I can read in-game maps now, so that’s a big improvement. Seriously though, I think this side is ideal for gaming. It’s big enough, without taking up too much space. I know some people prefer 50″ screens, but that seems excessive for gaming. It might be good for movies, but then t wouldn’t a projector suit that pillar better?
The only problem I’ve had was with picking up transmissions. I was only able to get a couple channels, and even then only at a certain time of the day. I think my TV is a Dr Phil fan.
Problem solved though. I picked up a cheap indoor antenna, and I’m close enough to the broadcast tower that they work perfectly. A few channels have a less than perfect signal, but that’s not a big deal. I don’t really watch tv anyway, except maybe the news, the odd comedy, and if there’s a good movie on.
