You don't need to wait for a return of OnLive or for another game streaming company to start up. No, you can do it all with Amazon EC2 and your current Steam Library. This guy uses Amazon EC2 to create a virtual machine instance running Windows Server with an NVIDIA card, installs Steam and some drivers, then uses Steam streaming to play games on his otherwise nowhere near powerful enough Macbook Air.

Nice.

I'm pretty impressed with PSNow and Remote Play on the Vita. Streaming is already decent and only going to improve so has a big future.

Undertale is great. The way it's written is just... it's like one of those stories where every little detail has been crafted and thought of and it just POPS. It's great.

Yeah everyone seems to love it.  Must admit it doesn't appeal to me from what I've seen of it.  Maybe I'll give it a try once I've cleared some of my backlog.

Got it free with PS+ a while back and still haven't tried it yet.  Looks like good chaotic fun though so I should.

I spent a lot of time playing GTA V Online. Probably 150-200 hours, 99% of it with friends. It was good fun, and I'd take breaks for a few months and come back for the fresh content when it dropped. That said, it was getting old, and because it's so hard to earn money in the game, the playerbase and R* really discourage PVP in the open world, which is a shame.

I ended up trying PUBG at a friend's house, and was instantly hooked. It was like DayZ but without the drudgery. Air drop on to the island, loot for gear, and stay ahead of the ever shrinking circle that'll kill you as it closes in. Try and be the last one standing out of 100 players.

It's fast paced, with tons of cool gear and mechanics that just work. Great fun to play with friends, too.

The only thing that bothers me is their experimentation with first-person only matches (the game is third-person as standard). I like it in third person, and I can put up with it in first. I just wish they'd pick one so I can git gud.
