What are you playing: The Third Dimension

A glasses-free revolution is almost upon us! We celebrate by playing some games--none of which include glasses either!


We're a week away from new hardware: Nintendo's 3DS handheld. While someone in the office is already rocking the unit, the rest of us are forced to wait until next weekend.

Do you see a Nintendo 3DS in your near future? If so, what launch titles are you planning on picking up?

Oh, and while we're here: What are you playing?

  • Garnett Lee: The 3DS arrived with much fanfare this week and I’ll be spending much of my weekend with the hardware and several of the games in preparation for our reviews. I’ll also be getting in some additional Homefront multiplayer to finalize that review, and any spare moment will find me feeding my readdiction to Torchlight now on XBLA.

  • Alice O'Connor: I'm at a bit of a loose end video games-wise after burning through Dragon Age 2. I'm still catching up on GOMtv's current StarCraft II league, so there's that. What I think I'll probably focus on, though, is enjoying my ever-growing sprawl of unfinished books, making a throne of them, sleeping under them, rolling in them--the usual.

  • Xav de Matos: I'll be wrapping up Crysis 2 for review, putting some time in the free-to-play worlds of Gunshine.net and APB: Reloaded, and returning to the DC Universe after a long hiatus.

  • Jeff Mattas: My weekend will be filled with Total War: Shogun 2, but I’ll probably take some time to finish off Bulletstorm and maybe even get dirty with some Motorstorm Apocalypse.

  • Steve Watts: I'll be attempting to wrap up Bulletstorm, possibly taking Homefront for a spin, and continuing to grind my Pokemons. What? I've got three badges.

  • Ozzie Mejia: Popping in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and taking Shuma-Gorath for a spin. I have to take out my frustrations over having my bracket busted in four hours on someone, so I'll also play a few rounds of Team Fortress 2, where Total War: Shogun 2 weaponry should be running wild.

        Xbox. Didn't get a PC version... but rest assured I will be looking into that when I get it.

          We need your opinions on the 3D tech. I'm really curious now about it.

            I have a 3D set up for PC but not for console.

          Nvidia had a 60+ inch TV running Crysis 2 in 3D at PAX and it looked FREAKING AMAZING!

      Does anyone else show a thread from 1969 at the top of the chatty? I can't comment on it and it's WAY past the 24 hour cutoff.

      Splitting my time between AssBro, KOTOR, and Dragon Age: Origins since I'd rather replay it than add to my own ridiculous backlog with the sequel.

      Jumped in on the Darksiders weekend deal on Steam. I'm downloading now and will hopefully get a couple hours in later tonight.

      going to finish up Dragon Age 2 for the 360, then either my first playthrough of Enslaved or fire-up Fallout New Vegas again.

      Finished Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood from the Steam sale a couple weeks back. Staring down Bulletstorm and Monday Night Combat now.
