OnLive: Possible Future of Gaming.
So for the rare few who don't know, OnLive is a cloud service that allows you to play practically any high end PC game off their own personal servers. All you need is your average everyday PC or Mac, and you're good to go. Only set-backs to it though is that If you have an unreliable internet connection like I do (at the time I'm writing this, I'm sharing the same connection with about five other devices on a DSL service) you're not going to have the best time. The worse your conncetion gets, the less quality you're going to get out of them, down to the point where you get no images at all, and have no idea what is going. There's no lag at all when everything's together though. Every single click I made when I was able to play gave me an immediate response, as if I was playing off my own device.
So just from those few little tests I'm really liking this service. I can only blame any issue on my terrible service and my families refusal to listen to the one techey in the house and get some better service. I really hope it gets a lot more support from gaming companies in the future, so that we may all be able to enjoy the same gaming experience despite not being able to afford or maintain a high-end gaming PC for whatever reason. Don't even need any discs, and you wont get stuck with downloading a game for so many hours, or having insufficient space on your hard drive. Why not?
