Does anyone use 'Onlive' to play games? I just discovered it and it looks pretty good.

NVIDIA will soon release 'THE GRID' for more full HD games to be streamed.

Is it any good?

I gave it a go about a year back and while it has potential, it also requires a fast internet connection to be able to stream the games properly otherwise the games look awful. It doesn't seem to have took off, but then again I would download it to see what you think of it first, and to also see if your connection can handle it.

I've never used it, but I know they went bankrupt and got bought out. I've also heard the quality varies greatly and that there is some not insignificant lag.

I don't reccemend wasting money on that, Nvidea console or the steam console.

I used Onlive two years ago, but it's just horrible! Playing games on it is just bad...It lags so much even if you have 25mbps DL and 2mbps UP. There is always a delay between your computer and the onlive servers. Cloud gaming for us is still FAAAAAAAAR FARR away from us.

I got their console thing for free from PAX a couple years ago. I've got a really strong and stable internet connection so it works fine for me. I just don't like having to use an ethernet cable, it doesn't exactly make using the thing easy. But what couple of games I've got, I've got for either stupidly cheap on promotions or free. I like it, and would actually use it if I had any real faith in the company and they had better games.

It's not good. Trust me. Unless you like weird, indie, and old school then I wouldn't bother. It's a very lackluster library.

Tried it for a while and I loved being able to play Metro 2033 anywhere but not having anything else to play makes it kinda useless.

Its useless tbh, it doesnt appeal to anyone.

Its aimed at those with terrible PCs but enormously powerful internet connections who want to play top quality games. Those people are few and far between. Additionally its library is pretty lame, cool technology but no market for it

I've tried to try it before. I just don't own anything that runs it.

I have no smartphone, Windows, or OS/X computer, and I'm sure as hell not paying $99 for that miniconsole just to try the service out. I have a decent internet connection, but I'm not gonna go out of my way to figure it out.

It seems to mostly have just Western games anyway. Which is fine, but there's a reason why I'm not a PC gamer.
