Dragged into a 3D world

I haven’t always been the best spokes person for 3D technology that is available today. I’ve always nagged that “my eyes hurt” and I get dizzy etc. I’ve had a slight change of heart lately.

I’ve recently moved back home to Sweden and found myself without a TV for over a month. It was pretty disastrous. No way to play any video games and definitely no way to watch movies.  My husband and I went to a TV store and came home with a 3D TV. Our first movie that we watched with my mother was Tangled 3D. To see my mothers expression and enthusiasm for 3D technology, it gave me a change of heart. It is entertainment after all and for my mother, it was a very wonderful experience. Maybe I’ve been to spoiled to the point that very little impresses me nowadays.

Valentines day was just around the corner and while on the train, we noticed an interesting piece of journalism in todays Metro. There was a column about how woman don’t want chocolate and flowers for that special lovey dovey day. I joked with my husband that I wanted a Nintedo 3DS. Believe you me that when Valetines day arrived I was holding a Nintendo 3DS. Rayman came with the package and of course, I was loving it.

After playing it for an hour, my eyes started to get a bit tired, so I decided to check out what features the darned thing has to offer. Well to my surprise I could record 3D videos! Also take 3D Pictures! All my content is being saved on an SD card which makes transferring data a lot easier the I thought.

I do not go out without my 3Ds anymore, it’s with me as I travel and even when I go grossery shopping with my mother.

When you get a 3DS game though, I suggest you start with Mario 3D. Rayman has a bit more story to it, but it gets boring really quick. I think the game, or first movie in 3D will give you a lasting impression, so make it a good one.

Also, one thing I’ve noticed here in Sweden. Almost every store I’ve been to has sold out their Skylanders. Isn’t that odd? Good thing I bought almost all of them when I was in America. You cannot find them anywhere here. If you are a Swedish parent looking for Skylanders, do not go to a gaming store, go to a store like ICA or City gross, that is where you’ll find them.

To end this blog post, let me present you with our ACTA protest image!

Our flag made a statement and the statement was, FU ACTA!

  1. You make 3D sound fun! I have always thought it was praised too highly and just annoying new technology. Maybe I’ll give it a go! 😉

  2. Well that is the thing, it costed just a WEEEEE bit more then non 3D feature, so I’d figure I’d give it a go. Boy am I glad I did. If you buy a 3D tv, make sure you get one that comes with nice glasses, because some are just damn uncomfortable. :c

    I think, like I said, we are a bit spoiled when it comes to technology. I went pretty anti right of the bat but every person I’ve had in my home who watched a 3D movie with me or played PS3 games in 3D thought it was the most amazing advancement ever.

    I got enthusiastic on their enthusiasm 🙂
