Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates but somehow there is not much going one after the christmas in the 3D world. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know, that we were missing two games in our list. Both were released already last year.
Allright, the first game is NOT a multi million dollar production loaded with ultra cool effects. It is kind of old school: 3D-struction. It is available only via the marketplace and a little difficult to describe so maybe a short demo will give you a clue, what to expect. Take a look:
looks like fun?
The second game that has 3D support on Xbox is actually “just” an addon. I’m talking about Two Worlds II: Pirates of the Flying Fortress. So if you always wanted to be a drunk, flying pirate, this game is made for you. Start capturing ships, flying with them all day long… It’s going to be legendary! 😉
So, have fun, keep gaming, hope you learned something new today and let me know if you find any new Xbox games with 3D support, that are not in our list yet. Cheers!
We have some exciting news for you. There are 5 new titles in our Xbox 360 3D Games List. Yep, that’s right, not one, not two but FIVE new titles (well, one of them is not really new ;)). Christmas is comming soon so everyone is releasing their stuff now.
Okay, let’s start with the not-really-new one: as you might know, Crysis was re-released as a downloadable title (thanks to Kevin for the news) and it has 3D support! That’s awesome but to be honest it’s a bit late. I prefer playing Crysis 2 but for those who like the first part better – have fun.
Our second title is a really old game. Do you remember the blue-haired, rolling “guy” a.k.a. Sonic? Well, if you liked the old versions, you should probably take a look at the new one: Sonic Generations was released on November 1, 2011. And guess what, it has 3D support, here a quote from the description: “Iconic environments from gaming history come to life in beautiful HD for the ultimate Sonic adventure, each revisited, recreated and re-imagined with stunning results. Also, these environments are presented in stunning new stereoscopic 3D for a whole new way to play.”.
The next game in our list will be released tomorrow: Happy Feet Two: The Videogame. I don’t think I’ll buy it but maybe some of you like this kind of games or have kids / sibling that will like it. Anyway, suprise, suprise, it has 3D support, too. Here is the relevant part of the game description: “Dance the adventure?in 3D! PS3, Xbox 360 and 3DS presented with both standard and 3D gameplay modes”.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze strikes back! Assassin’s Creed will FINALLY be available with 3D support for Xbox 360. Don’t miss it! The new part is called Assassin’s Creed Revelations and will be available on November 15th, 2011. You should definitely take a look at amazon’s special offer: “Order Assassin’s Creed Revelations and receive two Amazon.com exclusives: the Altair outfit single player skin, allowing Ezio to don the wardrobe of his legendary predecessor for the game’s entire campaign, and a pair of TriOviz 3D glasses for Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, enabling 3D gameplay on most 2D HDTVs.”. So if you were planning to buy it, order it on amazon.com and collect the extras, as long as the offer is still valid!
Last but not least, a game that gave me some (literally) sleepless nights: Silent Hill. I don’t think I really have to tell you more about this game – if you never heard about Silent Hill, start googling my friend. Now here is the not-so-good-part of the news: the release date of Silent Hill: Downpour is March 6th, 2012 – we still have almos four months to go but anyway, I hope it will be worth waiting.
That’s it for today. Thanks for reading and if I missed something, post a comment below or use the contact form, I will update the list ASAP. Cheers!
Showing off the feature to Eurogamer under embargo last week, 343 Industries executive producer Dan Ayoub said: “Let’s say it’s the season of remakes – people are taking their games and putting them in HD and saying, ‘Yo, remake, go!’
“Halo fans deserve better than that. We really wanted this to be a celebration of 10 years of Halo.”
Asked how much time the development team had spent refining the 3D effect, the game’s producer, Dennis Reese, said: “They have made some very specific modifications. In a lot of cases it’s making sure the weapons look great, the environments fit right in 3D – so you kind of adjust how deep the 3D you want, that’s a setting within the controls.”
But with Halo 4 on the horizon, Ayoub cautioned against expecting 3D as standard in future titles.
“I don’t think 3D is representative of a goal for the franchise,” he said. “This is something we wanted to do for Anniversary, because we wanted to make it special with as many cool features as we could.”
Further talking up the remake, Ayoub claimed: “Current-gen shooters took so much from the first Halo. It really defined the genre and you look at any shooter today and you’re going to see stuff that was pioneered in Halo 1.”
In addition to the revamped HD visuals, Halo Anniversary also features a Classic mode, accessible at any point with the Back button, that presents the game in its original form.
The Gamescom demo focused on the 343 Guilty Spark mission. Ayoub said the enhanced graphics of the updated version would actually “guide the player a little better” through better use of lighting and the removal of fog.
Either way, Microsoft insists, the gameplay should feel exactly the same – for better or worse.
“Any time you touch a classic you have to expect criticism,” Ayoub acknowledged. “We wanted the game to play exactly the same as 10 years ago and that philosophy meant warts and all.”
Ayoub confirmed that more Halo announcements would be made at PAX this weekend – “We’ll talk about few more features, a few more multiplayer maps” – the final major missing piece being how the game will incorporate Kinect.
The decision to add stereoscopic 3D to Halo follows last month’s confirmation that fellow Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War 3 also supports the feature.”
“Upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War 3 includes the option to play in stereoscopic 3D, Epic Games has announced.
“We asked, could we do it?” executive producer Rod Fergusson told Eurogamer at a Gears of War 3 event in London.
“It felt like something we wanted to have. It was a feature we didn’t want to be deficient in. When you look at Gears 1, it was what people used to demo HD at the time.
“It’s still fledgling technology. It’s still a niche feature. But it was something we could support, so we felt, why not?”
A handful of Xbox 360 games have launched under the “stereoscopic 3D” banner, including Crytek’s Crysis 2 and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops.
But the Xbox 360 does not, currently, output in 3D to the same degree as the PlayStation 3. That is, it does not output in full, HDMI 1.4 stereoscopic 3D in the 1280×1470 twin 720p framebuffer configuration.
Instead, the Xbox 360 renders using 3D techniques based on the principle of two distinct images crammed into one 720p framebuffer. This is how Gears of War 3’s 3D effect works.
It also forces the game to run at a lower resolution. “It’s a little bit jaggier in certain areas,” Fergusson said. But the difference is “not huge”. “Instead of 720p you’re at five something,” he explained.
“It was something that came in really late in our process. It wasn’t something where we said, OK, we’re going to design the game from the ground up for 3D. It was more of a post-process 3D, where we’re like, OK, certain things need to be adjusted, but for the most part it generally works.
“It’s great. I love the qualities it provides, the window into a world. That’s what the 3D gives you. Having that depth of character, and being able to see that separation from the reticule and the creatures in the background – it’s a different experience but it’s a really good one.”
Meanwhile, Fergusson confirmed Eurogamer’s May story that revealed that full, PlayStation 3 level stereoscopic 3D is coming to the Xbox 360 – in effect a 720p image per eye.
“As you look forward, in the next XDKs [Xbox Development Kit] coming out of the Xbox, it’ll have more support for 3D or more higher quality for native support for 3D,” Fergusson said.
“We’re supporting the current state of the art for Xbox. Moving forward, the Xbox will be able to take it further.”
Fergusson’s comments here suggest full stereo 3D on Xbox 360 will not be enabled until after Gears of War 3’s 20th September launch.”
“Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is an arcade flight simulation set in a world war I+II scenario.
During the 7 campaigns the player has to fly and fight through over 48 missions. Before taking off, the player can choose between different aircrafts, each with different strengths and weaknesses.
Within the missions the player gets different objectives like patrolling, sneaking, hit & run, bombing and escorting. Objectives are presented as dialogues between different characters. After some missions the player can upgrade one of his skills in order to maneuver the airplanes easier, have more endurance or have your wingman boosted. Further, the player can choose between two control schemes. Arcade and simulation. The first one makes the game easier to control, while the second one gives more options to control the aircraft.
Beside the campaign the game also features several multiplayer modes, local and via internet for up to eight players.
- Seven campaigns, each based upon a resistance movement of the second world war
- Uniquely historical battles such as the siege of Tobruk, the battle of the Neretva Bridge, and Operation Belt in Poland
- Fight for the causes of key resistance movements such as the People’s Liberation Army and Partisan Detachments of Yugoslavia, The Polish Armia Krajowa, and the French Maquis
- Action-packed gameplay delivers the excitement of serial combat in a manner accessible to everyone
- Over twenty different landscapes, each individually detailed with period precision
- Pilot more than 16 individual aircraft, in both World War One and World War Two settings
- Machine gun your enemies, dog fight, bomb ground targets and rocket ground troops and enemy vehicles
- 49 varied missions provide combat, stealth and exploratory gameplay
- The player controls his aircraft with either mouse and keyboard or gamepad
- The player can choose between two control schemes: Arcade and simulation. The first one makes the game easier to control, while the second one gives more options to control the aircraft
- Several multiplayer modes, local and via internet for up to eight players”
The short answer is yes, they can. As soon as you log in to Xbox Live, they will know you’re playing pirated games. Unfortunately they will not only ban you with your account from XBL, they will also ban your console! This is quite painful as you can imagine – you won’t be able to play on XBL any more, unless you buy a new console and register it on someone else’s name.
If you, however, play these games only in offline mode, they will have no way of knowing that you play pirated games and you should be fine. But it is still a risky thing in my opinion. Sometime in the near future, there might be a possibility to verify if you played some pirated games offline and MS could verify that as soon as you go online -> you would be busted.
So my advice is, pay a few bucks for the games and you won’t have to worry about anything.
Today I’m going to answer a common question that seems to be bugging many of you. So is it possible to play regular computer games on the Xbox or Xbox 360? Unfortunately, the answer is no. But! Almost all of the recent games are being released for PCs and Xbox, so in this case you would have to buy two versions of the same game to be able to play it on your PC and your Xbox 360.
I’ve heard of some Xbox 360 Emulators for PC but I am quite sure, that it is a pain to make the games work and you will need a really good PC for that. If you would like to do the same, the other way around (play PC games on xbox), then I’m afraid I have bad news for you: there are some emulators for the Xbox but they are really slow and not even worth trying.
I hope I have answered your questions, if not, you can contact me any time!
