Round one...

Played little of Uncharted: Drakes Fortune last night. So far, the game has been a blast to play, love the main character. There need to be more heroes like him.What I didn't like was the fact that I couldn't see my enemies. It got to the point that I had to actually move really close to the TV to see them. This maybe due to the fact I have a standard TV and the downgraded resolution messes with the visibility. Thus, it looks like I need to get new TV just so I can play the game with out squinting to see my enemies on the screen.

However, there's one problem:

I don't want a new TV yet. The TV currently sitting in my apartment has been in my ownership for less than a year. Do I really need to get a new TV? This TV is a hand me down from my parents as part of my moving out and its only about 4 years old. They gave it to me since my Dad seems to be on an epic quest to make sure every TV in his house is a HDTV. Free stuff thats this nice, doesn't come very often...but damn it so freaking hard to see those bad guys...then again, It could just be an issue in Drake's Fortune and my TV isn't the issue at all...but HD quality picture is quite nice...

Stay tuned to see which side of me wins out: the common sense/thrifty side or the tech geek

Ring the bell to begin Round 1.
