Sweet! Congrats on the new TV. I myself have been enjoying some solid-ass 3D gaming on my 3DS right now. I'd love to hear updated impressions of 3D games in the future!
Got a new TV set recently. My old LCD 32" Samsung hasn't aged gracefully and started showing signs of old age, so I took the plunge and nabbed a nifty LED-LCD 42" 3D enabled sammy. Nothing fancy, but still a very noticeable upgrade. Besides it came with a bundled BluRay player and a couple of those aggravatingly expensive 3D glasses. I almost got nostalgic about the time when 3D lenses were made of cardboard and blue/red cellophane...I mean, not really, but almost.
After marveling at the IQ from most of my BluRay stuff, and being horrified about the way my regular cable stuff looked like, I proceeded to try out a few of the games I already owned that allowed 3D. Most of them looked neat but not mindblowing; stuff like GT5, Halo and Superstardust HD looked fine, although in Halo's case I started to get severe eyestrain after a bit, which caused me to yell obscenities to the people I was playing with. Most of those insults were not really directed at them, but since this is Xbox Live and people are used to be told to go f*** themselves as a regular greeting process, I blended in perfectly.
That still left me with a massive headache, but at least I got to insult a couple people in the process, which didn't help me with the headache, but somehow soothed my soul.
The one game that actually made me go "oh wow" was Wipeout HD. Seriously the 3D effect in this game is outstanding. The solid framerate and 1080p visuals improved the overall experience, although unfortunately eyestrain and migraines prevented me from playing as much as I would have liked to, and since I wasn't online there were no people to insult, so I ended up turning everything off to apply a huge-ass bag of ice to my forehead.
3D isn't really for me.
i don't know if i will ever get a 3d tv, regular FPS hurt my eyes after a few hours, so no clue what 3d would do to me :(
I don't know how the 3D would suit me having never really subjected myself to it... sounds like an awesome set up though nonetheless... pics of the new and improved entertainment center to come??
Dont play 360 games in 3D. They arent true stereoscopic 3D. Same with GT5, it's got a prety s**** 3D mode. The best 3D game out there is Motorstorm Apocalypse. Uncharted 3 is another. Dont write it off just yet.
