Yes, now that you mention it there is way that you can play these games, you just use gaikai.com it is service like OnLive but run from your browser and no software necessary.

Partake in beta today you will be also impressed by the beta. Here you may try such demos:

Mass Effect 2 demo

Dead Space 2 demo

Sims 3 demo

Spore demo

All run from the cloud of Gaikal yess this means even cheap netbook will run these good games so please partake but must your network be running smoothly so avoid wifi connection and such.

Glad to be of help god bless you also

I love the way you've replicated the classic plantbot posts so accurately. :D

I did have to look hard to see whether that was you or a spambot with a similar name :)

Not tried their demo in a browser yet but it seems a good idea.

I quite liked it.

It ran in a small section of my screen and not even then at full sharpness so I can tell they were going easy on my bandwidth with low resolution, but it still looked good in terms of smooth 3D models and stuff.

Like, Mass Effect 2 ran far better than my laptop would ever be able to handle it.

Loading times were minimal, too. The game itself launches next-to-instantly (there really is no download or installation involved). Once launched, the in-game loading (all handled on their end) is pretty fast.

The lag is actually fairly decent - which is to say it's pretty much like playing a game natively on your own computer. There might be the smallest amount of delay that would annoy a twitch-FPS gamer, but it's actually quite hard to tell, otherwise.

All went rather smoothly until Virgin Media capped my speed, the site realised I was no longer fast, and I got booted out of the demo.

I quite liked it as well.

Sims ran way better than my laptop normally manages (imagine a slideshow) and Mass Effect was good enough too. Ran both in full screen, too. A bit pixel-y and very edgy edges but nothing that would really bother me.

However! Third person games played with KB and mouse or rather trackpad in my case is just wrong.

Mhmm. And for me, for some reason, I couldn't use the trackpad (for moving the camera/direction of focus) while moving the character, which led to a lot of move-reposition-move-reposition navigation. Almost like an early Resident Evil game :D

Does make me want to check out Mass Effect 2 on PS3, though.

Gaikai is aimed more at demos that full games though isn't it? (From what Click! said)

Well, it runs on my netbook but the video lags too much for me. Sound is fine but the visuals, although crisp, were way behind and oddly the delay seemed worse on menu screens. We're talking whole seconds here by the way, not just an acceptable 160ms or so.

Tried it on my ageing laptop and it just got disconnected. Maybe it's best to try using a wired device and not play over wifi, extra overheads and all that.

Yeah, the site wouldn't even let me play while I was on wifi.
