PostSubject: OnLive, and what it is   Thu Mar 10, 2011 2:15 am

I recommend checking it out.

I find it hard to explain, so you should check out the above link. If I were to explain it, though, it'd be something along the lines of : OnLive is like playing on a gaming PC in which you don't own, whose quality is dependent on the speed of your internet connection.

Disregard not being able to explain it, that's the best I've done so far...

If your computer isn't incredible S*** (Jason) then it isn't likely you'll have any problems.

All you do is download the browser plugin and play. Besides making an account and putting in credit card info if you decide to purchase something.

The service is free altogether, but to play games (besides free trials) you have to buy or rent them. Along with that they have a monthly service available, which allows you to play a library of older and recent games. The library is currently 41 titles, and has a few obscure and a few recognizable games.

The first month of the PlayPack monthly service is free, and I'd really recommend trying it out.

Overall I'd just like OnLive to get noticed for how great it is.

EDIT : One last thing... if you do download it, make sure you're plugged directly into your ethernet cable. It doesn't get along well with wi-fi.

Along with that xfire doesn't recognize it as a game, and therefore cannot be brought up inside it. Just use alt + enter to make it windowed, which is what I do.

And last but not least, if you don't have a horrible internet connection you should be fine. 2 mbs is minimum if I remember correctly, and 5 mbs is recommended.
