Batman: Arkham Asylum – 3D Vison and PhysX ready Demo is Out

Good news coming out from Nvidia and Eidos Interactive/ Rocksteady Studios today with the release of a demo version of the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Asylum. Now what is interesting for this title is that it is going to support PhysX, which should be a good one, having in mind that the previous game with PhysX (Terminator) wasn’t very good. But with the demo released today comes another good news and that is that Batman: Arkham Asylum is also 3D Vison Ready, meaning that it should play in Stereo 3D without any major problems and it is supposed to look great (I do hope that it is true). So now you can head over to Nzone to download the 2 gigabyte demo of Batman: Arkham Asylum and try how the games does with both PhysX and 3D Vision. I’m already downloading the demo of the game at the moment and when I have some personal feedback about it and especially on the 3D Vision part I’ll write about it.

Update: Ok, the game is nice… PhysX is not that impressive as I expected, but still adds a nice touch in the atmosphere… now I have much higher expectations when the full game is released. As for 3D Vision readiness… the game looks good with minor to no ghosting at default depth level, but you cannot increase it a lot without having visual problems. More 3D Vision feedback coming a bit later…

Disney’s G-Force Game and the Expected 3D Support

Some time ago I’ve written about some interesting upcoming games that are expected to have official 3D Stereo support available in them in the form of anaglyph or 3D Vision S3D support and Disney’s G-Force game was among them. Now the game is out and it really disappointed a lot of people expecting it to be good in 3D especially when combined with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision kit simply because the PC version doesn’t support any form of stereo 3D – not in anaglyph or 3D Vision. Now we did not expect to have some sort of a great game coming out for something that is based on a movie, because most of the movie-based games are coming out to be average at best with lot of them raging from total bullshit to something that might be considered for a good time waster. You can say that Disney’s G-Force is below the average, but still might be fun for some kids to play it and the thing that might’ve made it worth playing was the expected 3D Stereo support which did not happen for the PC version of the game… why?

Anyway, you should be aware that Disney’s G-Force Game is available with versions for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and Sony PSP so you can pretty much get it and play it on any of these. But if you want to be able to play the game in Stereoscopic 3D mode you need to get either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions of the game, because only they come with anaglyph glasses and the needed mode to play with it. If you own a PC and buy the game to play it with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision you will be disappointed so please do not buy it just for that – save your money and the trouble. And there is on anaglyph mode available for the PC version so even if you wanted to try it out with anaglyph glasses you are screwed so just don’t bother with G-Force anymore and get your fingers crossed for the release of Resident Evil 5 for PC and that it will really rock in S3D as we all hope and as Nvidia and Capcom says.

And if you are still not really ready to give up completely on Disney (hey you are not a small kid anymore, right?) you might get some hopes from the fact that in the fall they should release another Stereo 3D-ready game title. This time it will be exclusive for Nintendo Wii console owners and the game is called Toy Story Mania!, and you probably guessed it will be based on the movie with the same title from 1995, but the game is expected to also feature anaglyph stereo 3D experience.
