Killzone 2 complaints & The Wire [shortblog]

Input lag. Deadzone. Control delay.

These are terms that have popped up over the past couple days in regards to Killzone 2. Now, I have never heard of these terms before, never heard them discussed by others, but all of a sudden, it seems as though everyone with an internet connection is an expert on these things.

Now, I'm not saying people aren't entitled to an opinion. However, just plain bitching about something when its already beaten to the ground solves nothing.

So it got me thinking, and eventually it got me thinking about The Wire (everything eventually gets back to The Wire), and one of the brilliant scenes from The Wire from season 4 which I think perfectly encapsulates what everyone is thinking, and the SOLUTION if you have a problem with the controls.

The ANSWER begins 1:45 seconds into the clip and ends at about 3:45.

In this case, the complainers/whiners/generally unhappy people are the security guard.
And I am Marlo Stanfield, kingpin of Baltimore, and the man with the answer.

Now that you have the answer, you can contemplate, absorb, and move on.

Here's a quick blurb about myself-

I am a children's librarian living in Los Angeles.

I like reading, writing, and watching tv.

I hate people who talk down to others. I like talking down to people who talk down to others to prove a point.

I spend way too much on video games, action figures, comics, and beer.

I plan on writing blog entries as soon as I am done with this whole lazy thing, which I enjoy.
