Want to see what the three player co-op Trine 2 looks like in 3D but don't have the game or 3D hardware required to do so? NVidia has you covered with an entire gallery of 3D shots of the game viewable with simple Red/Blue glasses amongst other methods. If you've played Trine or the Trine 2 beta you know the game is ripe for 3D support, with a rich multi-layered world that is full of colors it simply comes to life in 3D.
Frozenbyte has confirmed some swanky features for the PC version of Trine 2, which releases early next month. The game will utilize Steamworks for achievements, friends, and matchmaking for the three player co-op mode. Best of all - PC and Mac users can play the copy on either platform thanks to SteamPlay support. Even better, the game allows for cross platform play between the PC and Mac!
Did you stay up to the wee hours of the morning waiting to unlock Battlefield 3? If not, now is a good time to remind you that you'll want to update your graphics drivers on your PC for the game. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released optimized versions of their drivers for DICE's Frostbite 2 engine. I put a solid 3 hours into the campaign last night on my PC armed with a GeForce GTX 580 on all Ultra settings and the latest drivers. The game is drop dead gorgeous for sure and makes serious use of lighting effects with some really slick texture details.
One problem I've always had with the current generation of active 3D glasses is that they just make the image on the screen appear darker. Today, NVIDIA has launched their 3D Vision 2 glasses for monitors, projectors and TVs that promise to alleviate that issue while also being a lighter and longer lasting pair of 3D glasses. The glasses are redesigned to be lighter and made from softer materials so wearing them isn't quite a burden, but the really attractive features of this kit is when you pair it with a new Light Boost capable display.
While the Battlefield 3 beta won't contain any co-op, it is a good chance to get a feel for the game and check out the Battle Log online system. The multiplayer beta for Battlefield 3 kicks off tomorrow on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and while the former two won't require any manual intervention to run other than downloading it, you might want to get your PC in shape today by updating your drivers.
Finally looking at some cross-platforming action, Dungeon Defenders brought PC, Droid Phone, and PS3 players together at CES. Now, the Droid phone has to be pretty high powered to do something like playing in the same game as the PC and PS3 players, so Nvidia pitched in a bit to give this handheld device the boost it needed to keep up. Ripten takes a look at the specs while both Co-optimus and Ripten awe at the co-op capabilities.
