Wall-Sized 3D Displays: The Ultimate Gaming Room

Racing Games

There aren't a whole lot of racing games on the PC that I'm into, but there's one that stands out: the Need for Speed series.

Need for Speed Carbon

Carbon works very well in stereoscopic mode - even the interface is usable in 3D mode. There was one slight issue, though: we had to disable motion blur, because it caused the yellow lines on the road to appear to float. Other than that, no problems.

3D stereoscopic rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Real Time Strategy Games

I thought I'd try some RTS games to see if they'd be something people would want to play in 3D. I didn't think it would work that well, but was pleasantly surprised.

Star Wars : Empire at War

This game worked better than I thought it would. Although the interface was quite usable in stereoscopic mode, it was a bit distracting. Still very playable, though, and the cinematic views of the battles were super cool.

3D stereoscopic rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Company of Heroes:

Company of Heroes worked so well that it was like the game was made for 3D stereoscopic vision. I was blown away - even the interface was flawless. No visual artifacts of any kind.

3D stereoscopic rating: 5 out of 5 stars

    I bought the Acer P1303W its awsome for the price. You do have to go through a computer to get the 3D to work. I have a AMD FX 6 core proccesor and ATI 6770HD card that supports 3D. I then bought a Blu Ray 3d Internal Burner from LG for 77 bucks which is really nice. I got the Expand x102 Active glasses they are price well and look great. I thought i was screwed when the 3d didnt work when i put a blu ray 3d movie in and played it thru my Projector. My resolution was correct and at 120hz. I found out after messing around for about an hour that the software that came with my Blue Ray 3d player didnt work with my projector which is POWER DVD 9. I found a program called TotalMedia Theatre 5! As soon as i installed it and played the blu ray 3d movie and turned the glasses on everything worked!!! I had to adjust a few settings but nothing major. Dont forget not all projectors have to go thru a computer to work but you will prob pay more for them.
