For some reason Onlive doesn't like my internet connection (it's running at 6Mbs, and onlive only needs 3). Oh well.

Please dont support OnLive ever. what a horrible idea.

Low quality games, no control over youre game files. No mods possible. what a future for gaming.

Did i mention horrible lag.

Like its not enough we have consoles damaging PC gaming. soon this OnLive will try to. :S

Im sad for the future of PC gaming.

Agreed. Terrible step in the wrong direction.

Sadly, it's true. I hope not too many people support OnLive and it'll just fizzle away.

Steam has a pretty large fan base already, Onlive is trying to attract folks.

Thanks for posting this here OP!

This really irritates the hell out of me, I just broke down and bought this game at full price ($20) on Sunday afternoon. Just < 2 days before I could get it totally for free.

This isn't the first time either. I've had this happen on steam at least two other times, and also on other services like Arena.net's Guild Wars store.

It's my bad timing.. I know. That doesn't make it any less infuriating and frustrating. I love just jarateing money away.

Except with onlive, you don't really get the game at all. All of the files are stored online and you have to use a special account to access them every time you want to play.

You're better off with the version you paid for.

Thats good to hear, thanks Simian. Makes me feel a bit better, and I'm glad to support this kind of creative game. I've just had a bad run of luck the last couple of years. Paying double for things and stuff. Frustrating.

Don't you have to pay so much for OnLive a month? I don't call a game free if I still have to pay every month to play the service its on...
