I've gotten so many free games from Epic Store (must be close to 50 freebies) but haven't yet installed the launcher a single time... and I don't intend to. I'm not even sure why I still try to get all their free offers and never use them, guess I still don't trust them enough to install their launcher and with all the news about their software transferring up to 10 times the amount of background data then other launchers when idling, I won't trust them for a long time.

SOMA is a must BTW... I'm glad I was able to play it in 3D, it's even better with depth.

I concur. This game (as also many others moody, creapy games) is exponetially better with 3d Vision. I'm glad that I could experience this game in 3D because it adds a new layer of fear (pun intended) to this great game.

I found that shortly after I posted... though I am always super apprehensive about installing random DLLs from the internet. Was really hoping for a command line or INI edit. hehe.

3DMigoto is 100% safe, as long as you get it from official sources of course...

Very unfortunate. After using 3D Vision for many, many years. Playing immersive games without 3D Vision really doesn't give me the kick anymore. Not sure if I will eventually stop playing video games all together.

Luckily I still have a huge backlog of 3D Vision compatible games, I need to play first, before I have to worry about the fate of 3D Vision.

Great adventure game series. Some puzzles could have been improved (especially in Syberia 2) but the atmosphere of these games is amazing.

Oh, is Double Fine going to release this, make a couple of half-assed patches, then completely abandon this and happily fuck over the buyers?

Your comment is not even remotely smart nor funny.

Full Throttle is a cult classic and this looks like pitch-perfect HD remake with all the love this game needs... the same Day Of The Tentacle remastered got a few months ago.

The DOTT remake was a real pleasure to play and FT will be the same, there is no doubt about it.

2048 would have been a lot worse but you think the number would be 512.

I heard the number of lost HDDs from the secret service was 16384.

I initially registered to become a investor but now after lots of reading on the subject and gaining some knowledge, I will actually backtrack and not play along.

There is too much which can go wrong here, some tricks with hidden companies which act as the main investors and have priorities over the private investors and other stuff.

As it seems, the game might make lots of profit and still, no private investors could see any money. Eventhough I want this project to succeed, I will only help as crowdfunder, not anymore as an investor.

DSOGaming has already confirmed that this is just yet another re-release of Duke 3D, with some minor enhancements and new content.

I will buy it as I had lots of fun with DNF because I didn't expect anything. Good shooter, better than most, lots of humor, cool levels and good shooting. Can't wait to play through it again, hopefully in 3D Vision this time...

Great update, especially for 3D Vision users. Now I can finally play through the game using the latest enhancements and all DLCs, which was unfortunately not possible with community 3D Vision patch (eventhough it was amazing).

Way to go Nixxes, amazing job and support you're delivering here. As a thank you, I bought the game now full price

Everything about this site seems fishy. Though it makes it a perfect place for the next Tim Schafer mismanaged disaster.

I concur. I initially signed up with this investors program but after informing myself and thinking about the whole project, I reconsidered. Lots of people will loose money on this, I will not be part of it.

I don't remember Bruce doing the voice (David Gasman according to IMDB).

not Bruce Willis gave his voice to the main character but it was the German voice which was performed by the German voiceactor of Bruce Willis.

Anyway, great game, definitely a cult classic in Europe, amazing graphics for its time, great story and world, lots of exploration to do and puzzles to solve... aah, the memories

waiting for the Steam version... and Full Throttle Remastered.

Too bad that Schafer wasn't involved in Outlaws or we could have expected Outlaws HD soonish

Maybe too expensive for the average Joe, but plenty of enthusiasts out there will fill help fill the gap until if/when the technology costs comes down.

This is exactly the thinking which resulted in 3D Vision failing and 3D Vision is way cheaper to get than any VR helmet.

The cost for adding and troubleshooting stereoscopic support in any game is just not worth it for a handful of enthousiasts. Now with VR, not only do the developper have to get SS support working but code, debug and optimize the new control scheme for the game. This results in so much lost man power which could have been used to optimize the game for the general public/add features or game content/get rid of bugs which 99% of your potential buyers will benefit. Instead you lost time and money and something which less than 0.1% of your audience is able to use.

This will fail hard, no doubt. 3D Vision survived all those years because nvidia kept throwing money to the developers (and kept sending their own coders to the studios to help them adding support). But now, after stopping this tactic, none of the studios which offered 3D Vision support in the past (Batman games, Tombraider 2013, Just Cause 2), includes it anymore (Arkham Knight, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3).

There will be a initial enthusiasm and momentum for VR because it's certainly amazing and fun but the cost of those devices will kill it. Even for 400-500$ is way too much for average Joe and for this technology to become a success.

Update: Crystal Dynamics just released and patch to add SS support, so I stand corrected and that particular title. It still makes sense for them to add support as TR2015 is based on the TR2013 engine which included SS support, they didn't had to write one from scratch.
