The sale, which runs from Friday to Sunday, will see all the indie games on the service enjoying markdowns of 50-75 percent, so if there's an indie game you've been eyeing but didn't want to drop the cash for, this may be the perfect time to jump in. Check out the full list of titles after the break. Read More

OnLive: Does Gaming in the Cloud Work

The Cloud is The Future! That’s what everyone’s saying, right? Everyone over at OnLive, anyway. So, what is the future like? I’ve been checking out the much-hyped service for the last few days from home, and the claims made by OnLive are surprisingly pretty accurate. Quality of Service The biggest looming question about OnLive is also the most basic: Does it work? The short answer is that yes, it does work quite well. The video feed looks to me like an HD Youtube Video. It looks very good and all the necessary detail is there, but it’s definitely not on the level of even a fairly inexpensive gaming rig (mine cost about $800) right now. That balance will start to shift with time, though, I think. Games will look better and compression technology will improve, but the minimum requirements of OnLive probably won’t change much. As soon as a couple years from now, we may find that OnLive is allowing casual PC gamers like myself to play relatively good-looking PC games on a $400 rig or less. From a network perspective, things seem to work as advertised as well. This is a huge surprise to me. I have a lot of LAN and ISP-level networking experience, and when I heard about OnLive I wondered how it could possibly work with all the variables that come about in making an internet connection usable.
