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.

Take-Two Gives First Official Details on Bioshock 2 Multiplayer

Take-Two Interactive has finally pulled the curtain on Bioshock 2's rather controversial multiplayer mode, and I can officially say, for maybe the first time ever, I'm excited for a multiplayer mode in a game that I previously thought could only be single player. 2K Games, the publishing label of Take-Two handling Bioshock 2, announced a partnership with Digital Extremes - who have entries of Unreal and Unreal Tournament under their belt - to develop the sequel's multiplayer. "The fans asked for a multiplayer experience and we answered," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "With Digital Extremes delivering a multiplayer experience for BioShock 2 that features all of the things that make BioShock unique, we're holding ourselves to a high standard so that we can deliver the depth and variety that fans of the BioShock universe demand." What exactly is it that we are demanding? Hit the jump and find out what Bioshock 2 has in store for us... Read More

The Games That Don't Install Well on NXE, and How Much Room It Takes for Those That Do

One of the most hyped features (somewhere after Netflix and Avatars) of the New Xbox Experience is the ability to install games to the Xbox 360's hard drive. However, as Halo 3 has taught us, it's not quite a perfect procedure. In fact, it would seem that there is a small number of titles which don't really see any improvement when installed, thanks to the way the developers designed them. According to Destructoid, these titles are Big Bumpin', College Hoops 2k7, Pocket Bike Racers, Sneak King, Crackdown, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, and Quake II from the Quake IV Bonus Disc (according to NeoGAF). Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway. Takes a bit of the sting out of it, I figure. So now we know which ones don't work. But of those that do work, how much space will they take up? This is a question that's no doubt on the minds of many... or at least, however many bought a 360 with a 20GB hard drive. Fortunately, Sean has compiled a list over at NeoGAF which answers that very question, along with a few notes here and there about the reduction in load times. However, he notes "I can't possibly verify all of these sizes/notes, just going off of what people tell me. If there's an error please correct it and be nice about it." For your Kombo Konvenience, the list is posted right after the kut... er, cut. Whew, that was close. Read More
