OnLive PlayPack Launches

The OnLive PlayPack Program is underway, offering a catalogue of 38 games for unlimited play through this cloud-based gaming service for a flat fee of $9.99 USD per month, with the first month being free. The current offerings include semi-recent games like BioShock, Unreal Tournament III: Titan Pack, and F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, and they say more games are coming. The PlayPack plan was announced in December, and at the time we took it that the entire OnLive roster of games would be available under that system, but that is not actually the case, and newer games still require an additional purchase, with prices similar to the costs of these games at retail.

I logged into this service recently and noticed that I was getting this service free at the time, and ended up playing the Tomb Raider Underworld game for about an hour. I thought it looked and played great. Was surprised at how well everything worked.

It's also really nice that you don't have to sit there installing anything for an hour or so before you can play it as with steam. I had played Dirt 2 a few times on Onlive and picked it up on steam when it was on sale recently. I went to go play it only to find it wasn't installed which was an hour process at least. I think it's 12GB. There was never a huge difference that I saw between dirt 2 on steam and dirt 2 via Onlive.

I really hope PC exclusive games start dropping on this service because as hardware needs increase I see this being a much better place to spend money for PC games than steam. HDD install sizes are going through the roof with PC games and the hardware needed to run them is already beyond what I want to spend so I'd love to see Shogun 2 on OnLive. Even if it was just a $4 trial period I'd give it a shot.

Edit: And Hey there, holy crap, DoW2 finally made it to OnLive with a free trial! I've been very curious to compare this game on steam/OnLive, can't wait to get home!
