Forumers!

 

I have just taken the plunge and got myself a brand new 3D tellybox! I have to say, I'm impressed! So far my gaming highlights in 3D have been..

 

Motorstorm Apocalypse

Child of Eden

Super Stardust HD

Resistance 3

Crysis 2

 

Do you have any suggestions of other games that have awesome 3D modes, any games where it just doesn't add to the game?

Is there anything better than these out yet?



I'd say, in terms of 3D effect alone, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Child Of Eden, God of War Collection 2 and De Blob 2 trump the games you've listed.

 

Edit : Though R3 is very impressive. Oh, and good old Super Stardust HD is always worth a look.

Pretty nice use of 3D in "Order Up!", as far as I can tell you can not adjust the strength of the effect and it seems to be quite strong by default. Its the Move that really is the highlight of the game, but the 3D is... Its pretty good, I suppose would be the only way to describe it, I mean its no Shadow of The Colossus

Has anyone got a spare 3D TV I could borrow for a while just to see if I like it or not?

I promise to get it right back to you in good condition and I wont be moving house any time soon, honest.

The only time I tried a 3D TV out was in a shop, comet I think, anyway they had a demo disc playing and the part I caught was this bunch of chicks in bikinis around a pool and they were climbing in and out lots. Well I stood there for quite some time with a dropped drooling jaw, I felt like a perv when I looked round to see a women stood there looking at me with her toddler son.
If I had have had the money at the time I would have bought one and asked for a copy of that demo disc as part of my terms.

Probably one of the Sports Illustrated films, they're on the PS Store in 3D. I haven't seen one yet actually which is rather odd for me.

Unless I'm mistaken a 3D patch for marvel Pinball should land today alongside the release of the new DLC.

 

I could be wrong though.

^ Scratch the above, the new marvel DLC hasn't been added on the store despite being listed.

If any of you guys are interested Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath has just been patched for 3D. It could benefit greatly from 3D given it's mainly a 3rd person game.

Ooh, I'll have to check that out. Played a lil bit of this before being sidetracked by Warhammer and Darksiders; the 3d element may just swing me back to this though.

The 3D in Stranger's Wrath has my eyes bleeding after a few minutes, the depth is on another level compared to other games.

 

I would like to point out that the 3D in The Ratchet and Clank trilogy is awesome, it's a lot cleaner than say J&D. good stuff.

Hi all, just thought I'd post to announce that yesterday I joined this elite club :p

 

Got myself a nice 51" active 3D Plasma from Samsung PS51E550

 

 

Good to read that Motorstorm Apocalypse is one of the best 3D games because as a PS+ subscriber I got that for free last month (YAY!)

 

I tried Ratchet & Clank Trilogy HD yesterday but it didn't blow me away in 3D, I suppose that's because it's not much more than simply upscaled graphics and textures with 3D tacked on

 

Thanks to 3D I was able to clear the Uncharted 3 section which I'd been stuck on for ages: Chapter 14 which is the assault in the ship's Theatre/Ballroom. SO much easier to see the bad guys and what distance they were from me to gauge who to attack in what order

Yeah foofan the PS2 era games rarely get much from 3D apart from GOW Volume 2 which is pretty stunning in 3D.

 

There's loads of depth, some really intelligent uses of convergence points (often you'll see the game world slowly drag out into the distance before your eyes) and the fixed camera really gave the developer a chance to generally play around with the format.

 

Give Give C.O.E.a try to, the game is a brain melter in 3D Oh, and welcome to our much maligned club :p

If I'm honest, I'm pretty bored of the 3d thing now.

 

When I first got my 3d tv I must say I thought it was amazing.  I really enjoyed gaming in 3d and some of the documentaries on Sky 3d where truly impressive.  Nowadays though, I very rarely use the 3d function at all (apart from the occational movie that my daughter fancies watching - Shrek, Smurfs, etc).  

 

Am I the only one feeling like this?

I've definitely cooled off on the 3D gaming front because so few games really benefit from it but as for films I watch more than ever simply because there are a lot more 3DBR's out there now.

 

I know what you mean though, my GF was all about the 3D when I bought the set but now she kinda moans if I want to watch a film in 3D.

Am I right in thinking that the Olympics opening will be on Freeview HD in 3D on Friday? Channel 54?

 

I'm looking forward to that if that's the case

 

On the PS3 side, I tried Super Stardust HD in 3D last night and t'was quite spiffing

I'm not a big fan of racing games, except for the Ridge Racer series

 

However, I've just played Motorstorm Apocalypse in 3D... Just WOW!
