And a smidgeon of vaseline..
  4th November, 2008
..I got an X360, and I've really been playing the heck out of it, lately.
It's fun! I'm worried it'll RROD at any minute, but while it's still going, it's still fun.
And last week I bought Geometry Wars 2, for 800 points, as well as Geometry Wars 1 for 400 points.
Lovely stuff.
Except, there's something annoyingly wrong with GW2.
It's all nice and glowy, but the "lovely glow" is also really really annoyingly blurry...

I bought a VGA adaptor for the console, and have it hooked up so that everything's nice, and crisp, and clear. When playing GW2, it looks like someone's splodged a ton of Vaseline all over the screen.
It's really annoying!

More than anything, I keep reaching for my glasses and trying to clean them. It's a basic reaction that I use whenever things look a little too blury.. Only it's not my glasses. It's the damn game! And the more I play it, the more irritated by it I get. It's a shame, because it's pretty much ruined the game for me. I can't play it for more than ten minutes without getting another eye-strain related headache, as my eyes struggle to unblur the image.

On the plus side, I can now head back to GW1 and get much better highscores, because I can ACTUALLY SEE IT!!

Bah, humbug.

400 points > 800...

Whenever I fail to enjoy a game to it's fullest, though, I usually find myself wanting to "Do the game myself, only without that annoying feature", so it's with this in mind that I'm planning on creating Alien Deathmatch 2.
I'll fix the issues with the last one, add some new features, work out a bit more of a structure to the game, and try my best not to rub vaseline over everything.

Nice, crisp, clean graphics!
That's the way to do it!!
