1% ?

http://www.lasikcomplications.com/nightvision.htm

March 2014
An alarming 19.1% of patients enrolled in an FDA clinical trial for LASIK using the latest technology reported worse or significantly worse "night driving difficulty" six months after surgery.

I have to believe a significant amount of that is introduced through bias. I was told repeatedly before my surgery that I might have worse vision when driving at night. It's not great, but as far as I can recall it wasn't great before the surgery either. Driving in the dark with contrasting blinding headlights oncoming is bad for anyone I'd imagine. So when the docs keep telling everyone that they're night driving is going to suffer they can't help but notice how bad it is and chalk it up to the surgery whether it was at fault or not. That's my theory at least.

What's your basis for assuming it's bias? Both my cousin and my brother had LASIK, and said that after the surgery they would see light halos around bright lights, like headlights, at night, something they didn't experience before. They both thought it was annoying, but worth it. There are ton of websites -- most of them the LASIK providers -- warning of this specific effect, and that link says 41% of people experience the same. I wouldn't think that something that would be easy to bias into existence.

Well night vision isn't at all subjective really when we talk about rim-glow, halo's and glare. All 3 should be considered legal blindness because light-sources causing these are not exactly a rarity at night.

The night vision problem with glare has become much worse in the recent years because these new LED headlights are incredibly bright and focused light sources. So the problems got worse maybe because technology progressed...

Anyhow, I have great night vision.... so to me a change in that would be very noticeable.

This from a game that has slavery as a mechanic...

To be honest, even if Facebook were not a giant asshole company building some absurd walled garden, this one issue is why I will go for 2nd gen VR made by the competition, where they add some dioptric adaptive lenses to the deal, something binoculars have for 100 years now! Admittedly the lense issue is more complex in the goggles...

Surely there must be a way for these VR goggles to work without glasses/contact based eye correction...

Apparently the HTC Vive is much more accommodating of glasses, so if that's accurate then there's a way.

I am more hoping of a "no glasses needed" kind of deal One can dream I guess.. someone is probably already making aftermarket lenses for my dioptrin...

If that is true then answer this simple question.

Why is Oculus not selling the Rift on Steam and running it's games THROUGH steam? Their goal is not to make money with games and with hardware sales they'd get 99% of the money. More importantly, they could compete directly in the market, instead of basically being (legally) left out when VR compatible games release on Steam.

What Facebook is doing here is more akin to dooming it's VR approach. Walled gardens this or that, the real issue is that Facebook does not enter a competition with the other VR makers on an open market. This open market will always drag exclusive software into the open (aka pirate) if it can be made to run with all hardware.

Basically, Facebook is learning the lesson Microsoft once learned when it entered PC gaming.

DDR4 Memory at 4000 MHz, Does It Make a Difference?

Great article. Bottom line, don't skimp on fast memory if you're putting together a new high-end system, say for something like VR. Some of those benchmarks are mind boggling.

But it seems currently would be a really bad time to buy that... prices for both are very high.

Given that the mirrors hitting the tower is not a remote possibility you would think they would have insulated it.

Makes you wonder who designed that tower...

Apparently this subliminal shit doesn't work on me.. ;/

107,124 owners of Battleborn, so the game isn't selling whatsoever though.

But I don't get where Battleborn is a MOBA.. seems more like a more dumbed down Borderlands to me, with very little content, aside from the 25 characters of course (which no doubt are very expensive to make, but many characters without much content is still "very little content""

It's never not going to be a sandbox. You apparently want the Star Citizen single player game.

Well yeah That wasn't meant negative, just wondering if they ever plan to add something akin to .. you know.. a proper story, branching, decisions and stuff.

Well you see with MS how it looks when a company doesn't experiment and accept failures along the way. Look at Nokia.... before MS, Nokia needed revitalization, new concepts, and lacked the money for it, it got the money, but it also got the corporate behemoth MS.

Or look at Windows, where some news sites call the Windows 10 upgrader *malware* because of how it behaves, and the various data collection issues with no clear proof that it isn't really the NSA sitting there snorkeling up your data...

All this could be over if MS had a clear corporate line. If someone at MS had the say. But apparently this isn't even 1 corporation, but 20 departments all doing random shit.

How about a free week event so that people can actually check this game out?

Either I missed it, or Battleborn was the only game of these lookalikes without an actually open beta.... probably missed it ,/

I'm not seeing how there's a deal of 33 percent off here. Steam is showing this as $24.99. This is the deal? Seriously? Ah not happening, I'll wait this one out for a christmas or fall sale.

Fallout 4 is 33% off (40€ is called a sale? lmao), not the DLC

Big Throne of Bhaal spoiler with no warning in the patch notes.

Isn't a spoiler if you beat the game a few times...

So a spoiler isn't a spoiler if you already know, never would have guessed...

Yeah, but that spoiler isn't really a spoiler which you'd know if you had read it. The loot transition issue between SoA and ToB is a bug that was not in the original game to begin with. And aside that, all it tells you is that there is an end-fight..

Edit: Or they had already changed it by the time I read it.
