News Comments > DirectX 11 WoW
8. Re: DirectX 11 WoW Jul 5, 2010, 14:53 Drayth
 
If you don't want the effects, don't turn on dx11 mode.

..exactly, if you don't want to play in stereoscopic just don't turn on the fea-.. oh, wrong thread...

But yeah, they're finally bringing the game up from the Radeon 9800 / GeForce era. Never thought Id see the day that WoW would be a good reason to have a high end system.

News Comments > StarCraft II to Go 3D Via a Patch
8. Re: StarCraft II to Go 3D Via a Patch Jul 4, 2010, 16:03 Drayth
 
I'm still saving up for a modern 3D Vision system, but I used to do stereoscopic gaming back in the day when I had my CRT (NVIDIA had support for stereoscopic in their drivers long ago, just no marketing behind it). I played through Half-Life and Alice with it, many other games too.

When I had to switch back to only playing in 2D it took a while before I could get over missing the extra element of depth in my games. For me it added a ton more to the immersion, so I'm very curious...

Is it the current *implementation* that everyone hates? That is, if you could game in 3D with no need for glasses, and with no eyestrain would you then want the feature? Or do most of you feel movies and games should stay 2D, like perhaps that's the way they've been and should stay that way or something?

The shutter glasses don't bother me at all, and I completely understand it's a real headache for some, so I'm just wondering if that's really the main factor here...?

If you have an nvidia and can find a pair of those red and blue glasses you can try it out that way.. maybe if you have a DVD that came with a pair or something.

It's not ideal, but it does give the exact same effect as the shutter glasses, just with wonky colors. You can see if it's for you or not as reactions to gaming in 3D cover the whole spectrum.

I enjoyed Doom 3 for what it was, a very base FPS. I dug the atmosphere, plus the eye candy and the sound.. would have been better with Reznor, but they still did a top notch job.

And yeah, the flashlight never bothered me.

Having said that, I'm not going to argue with someone who hates Doom 3, because, yes, it doesn't push forward in any other areas than the ones I mentioned. Story was just ok, AI was.. well there wasn't any, etc. For me it was immersive though, I just dig that kind of sci-fi setting.

Best thing about this video to me is that all the tech I'm seeing is going into Doom 4. Course I will pick this up as well, looks fun.

You can solve the control issue Krowen by unchecking vsync in the game menu, then selecting vsync in your vid card driver's control panel. At that point the mouse/keyboard controls will be smooth.

It's a clone of Bioshock, you even have to take pictures to research upgrades to your weapons it seems.

I'm on the same server. Was in the Locksley Family Enterprises before it disbanded. One of the most awesome guilds (kins) I've had the pleasure of teaming with.

..not playing much right now, I dip in and out of that game.

The Runekeeper class introduced in the first expansion is actually one of the most interesting spell casters in an MMO, IMO.. but yes, pretty much every other class is very, uhm "standard". The whole setting doesn't allow for anything over the top, and for some that's the appeal.

I love their take on player death (you never actually die, you just retreat), the crafting system and that the game really caters to RP'ers (I grew up on pen and paper DND so RP'ing comes natural).

I hope the game sticks around and they eventually make it to Mordor.

-Edit: Google images can be pretty fun sometimes, lol

Maybe you shouldn't be so obvious every time you change your handle on this board, otherwise what's the point?

I'm guessing mostly to cover his tracks a bit so that newer people can't see his history of being a broken record for the past half decade or so.

LOL even after all this time is your psyche still so scarred by Riley's rhetoric that you are willing to accuse anyone expressing a negative sentiment about valve as actually being him?

I hate steam - can I be Riley too?

I wrote "broken record" for a reason. It's him. It's not just the negative stance that makes it apparent, otherwise I wouldn't have wrote that.
