I haven't tried GT5 in 3D cause i don't have a 3D TV but I really want to try it in 3D especially with the premium cars
Since the last time we got a chance to catch up, I've checked out a ton more stuff in 3D, both movies and games.
Quick list of Blu-Rays I've seen, FIFA World Cup, The Last Airbender, Clash of the Titans, Alice in Wonderland, IMAX Under the Sea, and a few of the clips Comcast has on demand. Movies like Airbender and Clash of the Titans, which both started out as 2D movies that were then post converted to 3D, simply don't do the medium any justice. The IMAX and FIFA World Cup discs look fairly good, though they are both fairly boring to be honest.
The best business in 3D I've seen or played on my screen has easily been Gran Turismo 5. Although when we first got the game in at work, I jumped behind a steering wheel, put on a pair of 3D glasses and was instantly underwhelmed. I tried changing the settings in the game and even the TV's 3D settings, but I could never get it to look right. However, when I went home and tried it out on my TV, the game looked great in 3D from the start. When playing in 3D and using the steering wheel, Gran Turismo 5 gives you a feeling that I can only describe as 'tickling your brain', which seems to occur thanks to the feedback of the steering wheel and the 3D visuals. It's the same feeling you get when playing Tumble in 3D and using a motion controller. It's almost as though your hand eye coordination works naturally when guided by accurate 3D depth. So the first time you stack blocks in Tumble, or negotiate a turn in Gran Turismo 5 by simply looking at the apex of the turn and applying the correct steering, brake, and throttle, its like magic. The brain tickle goes away after you get use to it, but you still always have the urge to look over at the other driver when you pass a car on the track, since in 3D it really does feels as though you're driving.
In more 3D news, I got a chance to see Tron Legacy in 3D last week, which was about as awesome as I expected. It was a little slower and more serious than I though it would be. Jeff Bridges does have a couple of lines that lift the mood at times, but its a serious flick that's extremely well done. I had watched the original Tron a week or so before seeing the new one, I still can't believe how ahead of its time the original movie was. I think seeing it set me in the perfect frame of mind when I saw Tron Legacy since its certainly faithful to the feeling of the first film.
After checking out the movie I picked up the game, which seems like a fairly average action game in my opinion. Check the site for the official word, but I can certainly attest to the fact that the game does 3D on the PS3 and it does it fairly well.
Alright, I better get back to work. Game of the Year production has been in full swing, you'll see the nominees later today! Also, we've got a Game Night tomorrow, check Jody's official community blog for more details there. Actually, my gamer tag on either XBL or PSN is ironmacd2, I'll hopefully be racing or shooting people online in some fashion.
