I missed this email unfortunately.  Apparently OnLive is now offering up some free-play weekends (a la Steam).  During Halloween weekend they offered ...




Here's hoping they do it again.  And I actually check my email before it ends this time.

That'd get me to sign up. I'd definitely play some free F3ar.

I'm leaning more and more towards doing this. I love the idea of renting games instead of buying, and since my computer is starting to get old again ( :( ) it'd be nice to be able to play the hot newness games on max settings again.
Your mom!

Holy hotness! I love being able to watch random people play games! Why don't they talk about this feature more? I had no idea.
Your mom!

There's a rumor that GameStop is building a similar on-demand subscription service for Xbox LIVE.  Not sure how true that is.

Some free shooter games will be available for people over the Thanksgiving holiday (for both US and UK players) including Red Faction Armageddon and Homefront.

Also, they are bringing back the $1.00 game deal for new users. That means that if you haven't bought a game with Onlive before, your first purchase (assuming you make it over this holiday weekend) is only $1.00. That is $1.00 for ANY game, including new releases. I think I'm going to pick up Saints Row: The Third.

OnLive giving players free LEGO: Batman
Celebrate mobile App launch with free title

OnLive is offering tablet and smartphone owners LEGO: Batman for absolutely free, when downloading its new mobile app.



Anyone who downloads the OnLive app on iOS or Android and signs in with an OnLive account will be able to gain access to the LEGO classic for absolutely nothing, it's confirmed.

The offer comes with no caveats or conditions attached; the game is yours for free, even if you decide you don't want to sign up to any of OnLive's games packages or decide you have no interest in OnLive as a platform after playing LEGO: Batman.

Players will be able to play the game with either an OnLive gaming peripheral, or touchscreen controls.

LEGO: Batman will also be made available to players who already have an OnLive account, so you don't have to be new to the party to get a free game. You will, however, need to download the new app.

When asked about OnLive's decision to give away a free game this Thursday, OnLive's UK General Manager, Bruce Gove, had this to say: "We're just that nice!"

OnLive Mobile is HUGE!  I'm sort of in awe of modern technology.


ps.  Posted a dedicated OnLive Mobile topic in the Mobile board.
