8. Re: Gaikai is shit. May 16, 2012, 01:00 Evil Timmy
 
Given the videos we've seen so far, Hawken seems supremely unsuited to the latency involved in a service like Gaikai. I'm glad the devs have found further sources of support which should fund further polish, but the fast-action combat and precision required might leave a bad taste in the first wave of the public experiencing the game.

I've tried Gaikai on the fastest home connection I've had a chance to use, and even with a tested 60Mbit+ and extremely low latency, the delay and quality issues are apparent. Certain games might be acceptable, but anything relying on precision aim and quick reflexes seems like a remarkably poor idea, especially as a showcase for a new game.
