  • I beat Thumper (1st time blind playthrough) on a free trail of Stadia over a year ago. So I can say some games work great with it.

  • linus throws the graphic card this gives me anxiety

  • For some games, this isn't an option. I play WoW and their license is against cloud gaming. SO is there another alternative, that won't break the bank and which won't make scalpers rich? Yes there is. Apple. I got a Mac mini M1 on Amazon for 750 new. It runs WoW great at 100Hz (3440x1440 high settings, goes ultra in 1080p), as well as some other titles such as PoE and Eve online (via crossover). For now, this is the best alternative if you play those games, plus you own the computer.

  • im one of the lucky few people who managed to get an rtx 3060 ti at only $150 above MSRP due to me not setting my bot up correctly which i only used to get a single card it was a fight fire with fire kind of deal with those scalpers. and my best advice is. do not sell your old GPU until you have a new one in hand

The games ran perfect 1080p 60fps! Until our English teacher reported the website to the school board for corrupting our minds and got it banned... lol

  • When you are a casual gamer and not that competitive it works pretty well, I use GeForce Now and it works pretty great, it is cool not to download the stuff, when you just want to try a game. Twice someone said to me, oh we could game this, but it takes long to download, so maybe do it tomorrow and I had it already ;) In one month I had one problem with my connection, but also with pretty bad connection it works great, only don't use the best options

  • I don't know what's up with your PS Now. Here in Germany (although the console's browser claims the IP to be in the US), the PS Now service runs probably about the way you described Geforce Now or Stadia. Delay was there and noticeable, but not a huge deal. Depending on the game it was completely negligible (Spider-Man played perfectly fine).

  • I hope Geforce now can come with higher resolution and fps, and ray tracing. Just imagine paying a low price in a month instead of buying an insanely expensive gpu. You can use the money on a good chair, mouse, keyboard and monitor instead!

  • you should give a try at boosteroid, in Europe works really well! I can play even warzone and apex with an average of 15-20 ms of latency. bad thing is that is only 60fps but being able to play it this good at 1080p with rtx and all maxed out on an old dual core laptop is priceless, and is only 9 bucks a month or 50 a year. tried it because my pc is broken but i'm seriously thinking about not buying a new expensive pc, hoping that the technology will improve even more. Per gli italiani va particolarmente bene visto che i server sono a Milano
