The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset Kickstarter campaign has been fully funded. In just a few hours, Oculus, the company behind the project, managed to raise almost $500,000 ($450,165 as of this writing), practically doubling their goal of $250,000 in under 24 hours.

If you're wondering why what's so special about the virtual reality set, it's been specifically designed with video games in mind and has some of the most influential members of the gaming community supporting it. Developers like John Carmack, Cliff Bleszinski, and even Gabe Newell are standing behind Oculus, saying how much they believe in the product and how exciting it could be for gaming. Check out this video detailing the device.

Optoma 750 GameTime Projector -- Inexpensive 3D Gaming At 108-Inches

Playing as a life-sized Nathan Drake as he scours the globe for ancient artifacts or standing tall as Marcus Fenix as he charges into battle against Locust are just two of the ways a projector can put your gaming experience into a better perspective. The Optoma 750, marketed squarely at gamers as the GameTime projector, is just one projector that accomplishes this 108-inch quality image feat, and it does it while adding 3D to the specs.

But what’s better than having a 3D DLP 720p projector in your living room? The $800 price tag. Yes, entry-level HD projectors - even 3D ones like the Optoma 750 - are now that affordable. It almost seems backwards to have a projector shoot out a giant image that’s nearly twice the size and more than half the price of 55-inch LEDs. It can project anywhere 32.2 inches to a whopping 322.4 inches - I found 108 inches to be a happy medium and a size that fit my wall. The caveats are that no consumer-level projector is as bright as an LED and you will need to turn the lights off in your designated gaming room. Beyond those two cons, all of the smaller issues I found were outweighed by the three big benefits of owning this 3D projector.

We've got your official Pokemon Conquest trailer from E3 2012 right here.

Pokemon Conquest is an entirely new take on the Pokemon franchise. Instead of wandering the wilderness trying to catch all of them (wait, that doesn't sound right), players will become a warlord and use their Pokemon to conquer surrounding kingdoms.

The battle system is set up more like Final Fantasy than Pokemon. As you travel through the Ransei Region with your Eevee, you will meet and befriend many different warlords and gain access to their Pokemon and their powers, as you attempt to conquer the region and unite the kingdoms.

Pokemon Conquest comes out June 18.

Zen Pinball 3D Review Verdict: The Portable Pinball Experience

Our two resident pinball wizards, Donell Tucker and Ernie Moreno, took a look at the new Zen Pinball 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. These are their thoughts on the game!

Zen Studios pushes their successful pinball game to the Nintendo 3DS, bringing pinball fanatics a stereoscopic 3D experience with Zen Pinball 3D. While the handheld version produces realistic pinball physics and enchanting audio to enrich your play through over and over again, it doesn't quite deliver the full pinball exeperience that the console versions do.

What Zen Pinball 3D includes are four original crafted tables, which are Earth Defense, Shaman, Excalibur, and Eldorado. In addition, Zen Studio will support additional downloadable content in the future, but for now, you only get four tables. Just like the original Zen Pinball game, your objective is to gain a high score by keeping the silver ball in play using the side flippers which are the right and left bumpers on the Nintendo 3DS. Also, you have the option to shake the table a bit with the analog stick to slightly move the ball from left or right. Beside your main goal on getting the high score, you have specific missions to complete within each table in order to achieve big points, which offers players a more complex and challenging game.

The Most Awkward Job At CES 2010 (Of Course, It Involves 3D)

Welcome to our 2011 Holiday Buyer's Guide for 3D Gaming. This gaming trend has gained momentum in the past year thanks to the backing of key players in the video game industry. Sony is committed to supporting 3D in all of its new first-party PS3 games, Nintendo released a handheld dedicated to the new dimension and Microsoft even stepped up with a pair of Xbox 360 3D exclusive titles. On the PC side, Nvidia gave us a brighter 3D outlook by releasing the 3D Vision 2 glasses, which aren’t half as dark as the original lenses. So, although consumers have been slow to adopt this technology, the fact that 3D is being built into TV sets, computer monitors and handhelds means that 3D gaming will creep into our lives whether we’re ready or not. Knowing that, if you’re adamant on being an early adopter who owns all of the coolest tech toys, impress your friends this season by adding these 3D gadgets and games to your 2011 holiday wish list.

E3 2010: Nintendo 3DS Images

According to a survey held by Interpret LLC at this year's 3D Gaming Summit, 28 percent of more than 1600 people surveyed weren't even aware that the Nintendo 3DS doesn't require 3D glasses. The survey also shows that 28 percent of 3DS users said that the 3D detracted from their overall gaming experience. What?

"A theme you'll see over and over again is just the need to educate people," said Interpret senior vice president of strategy and analysis Dan Casey. Clearly.

Casey also said that of all the 3DS players surveyed, 13 percent preferred playing with the 3D effect off completely. Findings from the survey also included that the number of users who reported dizziness or nausea due to watching 3D entertainment was up to 37 percent this year, where it had only been at 30 percent in previous year.

Vince Zampella, co-creator of Modern Warfare and co-founder of Respawn Entertainment, today delivered a public interview at the annual 3D Entertainment Summit in Los Angeles, but that doesn't mean Zampella has made up his mind about the inclusion of 3D in Respawn's first game, reportedly a sci-fi shooter.

"We're keeping a close eye on what's developing," Zampella said. "The 3D stuff is at a place where such a small percentage of people actually take advantage of it, it's not something that's a main focus for us, but it seems like a natural progression," he added. "So where is that saturation point where it makes sense to make the transition?"

Nintendo Reveals 3DS First Look Titles

A November system update for the Nintendo 3DS will add a 3D video recording feature to the handheld console. Gamers will be able to record moments from their lives in glasses-less 3D! Just think of all the weird porn people are going to make! Go ahead, think about it, right now.

This is actually a neat feature I think 3DS owners can have fun with. I personally don't see much use for it because the 3DS screen hurts my eyes but I may be in the minority. Do you see yourself using the 3DS as a 3D video recorder? 

Sony's Crazy 3D Headset Coming To Japan In November

Earlier this year at CES, Sony revealed a cool piece of tech with a lousy, lousy name. The "Headman" has thankfully dropped its somewhat off-putting moniker, but the tech is still as potentially sweet as it ever was, and it'll be available in Japan starting November 11, a press release confirms (via Engadget).

Child of Eden's Corset Peripheral Revealed

The PlayStation 3 version of Child of Eden which was originally supposed to come out September 20 has been delayed until September 27 according to Sony and Ubisoft. The PlayStation 3 version of the multisensory shooter will launch with PlayStation Move compatibility and also be available in stereoscopic 3D.

“We’re so excited to be bringing the critically acclaimed Child of Eden experience to PS3 system,” said Tony Key, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Ubisoft North America. “This is one of those special, rare games that belongs in every gamer’s library, and PlayStation Move integration, coupled with the ability to play in 3D makes for an even more unique experience on PS3.”

The Xbox 360 version of Child of Eden has been out for a while, and we loved it. You can check out ourChild of Eden review if you want more info on the title.

Are you excited about flailing around in your living room with Child of Eden for the PS3? I think playing this game in 3D could be really cool, what about you?

3D TV Gaming

There's no definitive way to help you select the right display for gaming. That said, there are a bunch of small things to consider when purchasing one, and we're here to help break down the important features that will come in handy when it's time to pull the trigger at the checkout. That, and offer up what we think are the top five gaming displays.

What You're Looking For


Glossy or Matte: Matte, also called "anti-glare," is a non-reflective type of screen. Glossy, on the other hand, is the hyper shiny bane of all displays. Most players will choose matte simply because they plan to stare at their displays for long periods of time. Although unproven, most consumers say that glossy displays are harsher on the eyes, mainly because they're focusing harder in order to dodge reflections.
