Kotaku Plays Dark Void PC at CES In 3D

Kotaku: "Nonplussed by the PS3's Gran Turismo in 3D and sort of blown away by Super Stardust HD 3D, I was split on 3D gaming when it came time to check out Capcom's upcoming Dark Void.

Where Gran Turismo's 3D seemed to add very little to the experience, giving you a slight sense of depth but little more while driving, and Super Stardust HD blew me away with its attention to 3D detail, Dark Void was somewhere in the middle."

3d is a niche that needs to go away. I see no point in this.
movies have been doing this for decades and you get the same lame results. Crappy glasses, Blur, headaches.

Skip 3D and move on to Holographic gaming. This is evolution

I only see 3D gaming producing Lawsuits from parents who's kid has gone blind or has headaches or fell down and cracked his/her skull while gaming.

3D has been around since Sir Charles Wheatstone invented it in 1838.

except it wasnt at all to the same level and result ... except in a few old imax features .

3d is there to stay . Hell if it's so old , and the same , then it follow every pattern we see with home and tv tech ... a glimpse then 10-15 years later , it's starting to get mainstream .

The most marvelous thing is this time it will be optional with most movies and games being watchable without the effects and glasses , unlike those horrid red/green stereostopic crap of old . So i dont get how you can hate so much something you can exactly chooses to skip .

For some of us 3d as always been more interesting and immersive than waving your arms around . And hell now we might get both at the same time

Avatar (amongst other movies like Up) has proven that 3D can definitely add to the experience without degrading the picture quality. And break into the mainstream while doing so. If a game or movie is engineered to run in 3D then it'll def. be a plus. Avatar made me a believer :).

I've read some impressions of 3D games at CES and for the most part, they're really positive. The standout being Super Stardust HD. If games are developed with the tech in mind, there shouldn't be an issue.


Now, immediately, its obvious that it won't catch like wildfire considering the barrier to entry: the costs of new TV and peripherals. Though personally, I plan on getting a new HDTV soon (have an OK rear-projection set now) and I'll def. be in the market for a 3D-ready model.

It's something that I think will catch on eventually, perhaps being an evolutionary step to holographic viewing. Whether there are people who oppose it or not. And that's the great thing about this tech...it'll be optional for those who want it.

Baka-akaB5071d ago

Indeed . And obviously given Dark Void's low quality overall , it is hardly the best demo for 3d .

As for the barrier . Well Nvidia is already adding it with many of it's graphic cards . And 3d tv are not the pre-requisite (but obviously googles , enable players , graphic cards , and consoles are) , only the best way to enjoy it .

With already available and in constant developpement 3d tv without the need of glasses , 3d is definitively there to stay .

I'm pretty sure a website can't play a video game

Dark Void is a pretty decent game, I have it on disc for PS3 but hey... I'll grab it digitally to play on my Series S. Hard Corps Uprising is a freaking sweet (and hard) game. I've had that for a while and still cannot beat it.

Supernintendo85974d ago

@darthv72 Jesus Christ LOL, how on earth could you be downvoted for your opinion of the two games that are decent? This community sometimes i swear...

darthv72974d ago

It must be those that have beaten Hard Corps Uprising. That is their way of telling me I need to get good.

RazzerRedux974d ago

Maybe they are downvoting because they disagree with his opinion.

Fritzwochel974d ago

This is why sites like Reddit are trash. They auto-punish users who gets downvoted - thus if you have an opinion other than the poitical correct majoirty, you're getting all sorts of blocks.

CrimsonWing69974d ago

I'm all in for Dark Void and Hard Corps, but look... people have opinions. Maybe a majority of peeps don't agree with his opinion so they hit the disagree button, I don't know it makes sense to me.

Silly gameAr974d ago (Edited 974d ago )


Best thing to do is not worry about those little arrows below your comment, and just say want you feel. You'll be much better off when you don't care about yours or soomebody else's downvotes.

On topic, I also have Dark Void for PS3, and it was pretty decent. Good enough for at least a playthrough.

PapaBop973d ago

Since when do people care about votes on here? Everyone on here knows darthv72 is an xbox guy, he'd get more disagrees for saying white is white and black is black.

The Wood973d ago (Edited 973d ago )

Some people act like someone spat in their faces or they're credit score would be impacted. Some people don't agree.... .life huh

IGN said, "Dark Void is one of those games you'll play, beat, and forget ever existed."
Exactly my experience.

Dark Void possibly killed my phat launch PS3, with countless crashes and slowdown. So I have mixed feelings about that one lol. Mediocre game at best, and runs terrible on PS3. Hopefully the 360 version is better...

Chevalier974d ago

Loved Hard Corps! But yeah get better 😆. By the time you unlock all the abilities you it just gets easier. Makes me wish they would continue with Hard Corps.

boing1973d ago

Yeah, Dark Void was pretty decent. Nolan North voiced main hero AFAIR.

3200 in Gamerscore available!! Get in!!!


Chocoburger974d ago

Legit cringe when MS promotes Achievements and GamerScore. Sad state of affairs for them to be that desperate.

RosweeSon973d ago

Making out those games are still worth $129.99 is bad enough 😑🤣 yeah maybe 10 years ago. Worth about 12.99 these days 🤷🏻‍♂️🤣 ✌🏻

Father__Merrin974d ago

Lol the Austria leak was fake then. This looks better than last months which was rubbish

x_xavier_x974d ago

*Truck Racing Championship*
"monitor tire wear..."

Yeah, that's what I want out of a video game. /s

What have they got in store for next month, Vehicle Inspection Sticker: The Game?

DOMination-974d ago

It's a racing game.

It's no different than monitoring your health bar in an FPS or the time you spend watching a cutscene rather than playing.
