Ow. My head.

Post by DCFreak07 » Fri Aug 04, 2006 4:08 pm

Today, I was playing XBOX, and then it started looking blurry so I quit, now I got a headache and can barely read words. They are like blurring together, but when I watch tv. I'm fine, although I still have a headache. Not sure why it only does it to words buts it getting annoying.

That's what happens when you stare at something that constantly changes with many different colors for long periods of time.

Odd. I was playing Halo though. There really wasn't that many color changes.

You really should take breaks every hour like most manuals tell you to.

when I have a head ache, I pinch the nerve that is on the wrist on the side where your thumb is,where the hand meets the arm. if you pinch it and keep it pinched for a long time,it stops ;)

I never play games all at once. If I pay money for something, I want it to last. I don't want to pay $50 for a game and beat it in one day. So I usually play a level a day or so. If it's a real long level I'll go take a smoke break midgame.

But yeah, I'd never pay $50 for a game anyway, so...

I'm the same with games, albeit for different reasons. It's funny though. $60 DVD TV Show Boxset? Watch all of it within 3 days. $60 game? Play it for 2 hours, then let it sit on the shelf. So I don't play them all at once...I barely play most of them, period.

Ironically enough, it's the cheapest games I get the most out of. My third copy of Halo 2, which cost $30? Easily 150 hours of gameplay right there (on top of the 600+ I had on my other two...). Phantom Brave, $18? 35 hours. Oblivion, $75? Four hours. :lol:
Very sexy hero, omg

Meh, DVD boxsets are the same. Or DVDs in general. That's why I never buy DVDs unless they're like $5 each or something. I can't see myself paying $20 for a movie I'll watch maybe once a year, if even that.

Yeah, I usually watch movies and TV shows once or twice, and that's it. Some shows I really, really like and want the box set, but I really can't see myself spending $250 (multiple seasons) on something I'll watch once then likely never again, or only with friends.

Mind you, this could be something serious. Go see a doctor, just to be safe.
