    You know how rich people frequently become quite eccentric and do odd things with their money? I keep getting the feeling that all of this success and revenue is doing the same to nVidia. I don't know anyone who particularly needed Freestyle, (for the record, The Forest did it already and I'm very sure it was not the only game) but they give us these features anyway.

    I'm sure this Cloud thing could do well in a South Korean cyber cafe but here in backwards land I'd rather hold the tech myself.

    I myself use reshade in a lot games, most developers use an awful tint (probably to help with aliasing along with AA techniques) that makes games look blurred, colourless & soft. Adding a bit of colouring & sharpening can make things look so much better, especially at higher resolutions where there's less need to combat aliasing.

    Isn't this born out of the death of OnLive? (which incidentally I thoroughly enjoyed for the time I was using it)

    Re: Nvidia opens GeForce NOW cloud gaming PC beta

    Am I missing something here? You have a lowish spec PC and you're playing games using a gaming machine that lives in the fluffy rainy thing. We know from a recent Hexus article that there's a lot of latency in a modern PC and only high end gaming machines have low latencies. So, you're using a laptop to do this using hotel wifi. You seriously mean to tell me that the 200ms latency in your low spec PC, plus the latency of the wifi / mesh system plus the latency of the internet connection which will probably be too rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish to do this on anyway isn't going to add up to a game destroying 1/3rd of a second total latency? Yeh you might have fibre at home with a 30ms latency but we normally game using decent spec PCs where latency isn't a big issue. Surely on lower spec devices it is going to present a problem and all you need is someone in the neighbourhood downloading a whole bunch of Hilary pr0n and you're screwed.

    If you do this, you're going to have to invest heavily in a very good internet connection, a high spec router and you'll probably want to cable your PC in. Hell, once you've done all that you might as well have just bought a decent gaming PC and not had all the potential issues. I wonder how long it'll be before traffic shaping by BT Wholesale destroys your ping? I somehow doubt they'll be prioritising your game streaming over their high paying business customers who are busy making and distributing Clinton based content.
