E3 2010: Resident Evil Revelations Screens

A few scant details have been revealed about Resident Evil: Mercenaries for the Nintendo 3DS. According to Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, the game is about 70 percent complete, but, much more importantly, Mercenaries will allow you to run and gun: Moving and shooting at the same time has been confirmed, laying to rest one of the chief complaints gamers have had about recent entries in the Resident Evil series.

Mercenaries combines the arcade levels from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 and adds brand new modes and well known characters from the series. It will support co-op, too...plus, it's in 3D!

Also: Resident Evil Revelations (pictured above) is about 20 percent complete.

The Future of 3D: Gamemaker or Gimmick?

In the late 70s and early 80s when red-and-green, paper-glasses 3D were briefly popular in the cinemas, there was little doubt that the optical illusion was nothing but a gimmick, no more artful than vibrating seats, Smell-O-Vision or kitschy insurance forms before 1950’s B-grade horror movies telling you that you might have a heart attack if you continue watchign this film.

We watched as Jason Voorhees slashed his way across camp Crystal Lake in a series of too-obvious stabbing motions, our heads aching, our eyes strained by the colorless, two-toned mish-mash, yet we were thrilled at this marvel of modern technology. But it just a trick of the eye. With an emphasis on trick. Few ever thought it would be the wave of the future, to say the least about defining the next generation of storytelling and, eventually, gameplay.

We learned this morning that upcoming FPS Call of Duty: Black Ops will allow players to game in 3D, right out of the box, and in the interview below, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia explains how 3D is more than just a gimmick in the game.

"The first thing that stands out is the weapons," Lamia says. "When I have stereoscopic 3D on; when I'm aiming down the sites, I'm actually aiming down the sights. I'm using the iron sights or using the red dot and painting a red dot actually on enemy players... It feels like I'm actually aiming, and using the stereoscopic 3D in a gameplay context. It's not just visually cool," he explains.

Check out the video below for in-depth info on Call of Duty: Black Ops' 3D... and some footage of the game's zombies!

Gaming in 3D may be the flavor-of-the-month, but it is not without its dangers. Sony yesterday updated its PlayStation 3 terms and conditions to warn users of  "discomfort" such as eye strain, eye fatigue or nausea that could develop while watching 3D images.

“SCEA recommends that all viewers take regular breaks while watching 3D video or playing stereoscopic 3D games. The length and frequency of necessary breaks may vary from person to person.

Nintendo's 3D handheld the 3DS may get 3D video chat. According to Nintendo's Satoru Iwata speaking to Forbes, "Technologically speaking, a variety of different things are possible with the 3DS, for example, 3-D video chat."

Hmm, it may be technologically possible, but design-wise, it will present a challenge. As Kotaku points out, the camera for the 3DS is on the outside of the device, so it's mysterious how that chat would work.

It's possible, though, definitely. Here's proof: The MasterImage company makes displays that use a similar technology to the 3DS, and they already have 3D video chat. Check out this interview with MasterImage's president. He details how his device already offers 3D chat:
