    oh i've know it's been coming for ages, this is just the first time i've seen it advertised on a major site, i might have to look into this, no more hardware upgrades sounds like a nice idea

    this has been in the pipeline for at least 2-3years already. but the thing is, its plagued with latency problems. Bit-tech.net done some sort of preview of it way back and listed it as one of the most over hyped technologies to date due to the slow uptake of it.

    to think they used to call onlive 'The future of online gaming'

    i've already used it, lag meant i could only play strategy games

    then again i was playing on a US server so the ping time was like 200ms, it could work well if you have fibre optic internet though

    But the reason i'm going on these sites, can anyone reccomend me a game, it's been 6 months since my last purchase and i'm finally running out of things to play through

    maybe when it gets under £20, till then, anything cheaper?

    i've also heard mixed things about it, some people i know saying it was brilliant, some people saying it was crap

    EDIT:I got this earlier but it's still downloading http://store.steampowered.com/app/36630/

    EDIT:Decided to play a game called final fantasy X for the playstation 2, i've never played a final fantasy game before, but from the first 20 mins of gameplay i've done it looks to be good

    i still need to find a new game though

    Deus EX HR is good, i dont know how people can call it shit. Well worth the price i think its about £25 on PC. Cheesy you played Witcher 2 yet? I thought it was pretty decent. Other than that save your money lots of good stuff is coming in a month or 2.

    no, no witcher 2, i've been thinking of getting that though, it's on special on steam at the moment

    Apparently Deus EX HR Has rubbish graphics, apparently the colours for most of the game are black, brown and yellow, and they completely forget about the rest of the colour spectrum (kind of like call of duty where the colours are black, grey and brown)

    I installed that new Ram in the laptop and it's seen a boost in capacity and speed, and now it can actually do more then 1 thing at a time

    you should get a GTS 250, worked perfectly since day one:laugh:

    i know you guys didn't like onlive but they've just launched now and they'll give you any 1 game for £1 when you sign up

    i'm thinking deus EX HR for £1, i won't pay £30 for it but for just £1...

    going to get some demo's and see how the uk version plays

    I'll gladly have your 6950* if you're replacing it.

    :D

    A colleague just bought a MSI 560 Ti and his is fantastic, I'm very jealous of the cooler.

    I tried a few trials, connection was fine and I'm on wireless.....Graphics were shocking though, made me proud to be a PC gamer who plays at max settings.

    Yeh, that's a point... I hope this sort of thing doesn't kill off PC gaming or, if it does, that they can offer a high def, full settings version. Blurry textures kill me!!!

    at least not until the next generation consoles come out at least. then they will be like "WOW!!! this looks facking amazing!!!!1!" but we would have already moved on with AMD 8 or 9 series with graphic cards
