OnLive operates on a private network.  It has games that are GFWL if bought retail, but they are not GFWL if played on OnLive.

Meaning, you can play Dawn of War II, but you won't get achievements and you can only play with other OnLive players.

Tried this service out and you know its not bad. Apart from the iffy resolutions (700-720?) I like the idea a lot. The pricing is actually very reasonable when you consider what you get. Apart from needing an uber connection. I see a future here somewhere!

Bear in mind this streaming from a US server, and I believe the resoultion lowers when trying to balance the stream.
Forgot I captured this.

I find racing games on OnLive to be the wost, due to the microsecond lag.  Even the smallest bit of lag can greatly affect steering.

Yeah you can see it there, but when the game which was with mouse and keys it was actually ok. Pad is fair enough as well.

Do you use OnLive, Neato? Is there a monthly subscription, or do you just pay for the games you want to play?
Your mom!

It's been a few weeks since I signed into OnLive.  You can buy individual games, or buy their all-you-can-eat subscription (which has some limitations).

If for no other purpose, it's a great way to demo games.  No download, just stream the demo.

As a beta user, I got a free game (Red Faction Guerilla), but since I already own it on 360 I never play it.

We need to start a poll, "Guess what Neato will buy but not play next!" ;)
