PC Cloud Gaming

Anyone do cloud gaming and know what services are available in Canada.

Paperspace looks very interesting but not sure if it is available here. Their basic gaming rig I believe: 8 CPU cores, 30GB ram, quadro m4000 GPU is ~40 cents per hour.

I paid for some credits on liquidsky with the intention to play PUBG, but then fortnite came out on console.

I tried playing darksiders 2 on it and it actually worked very well. They were doing some server migration were they were down for a week or so and I haven’t tried it since then.

The liquidsky reviews I saw weren't as good as PaperSpace's so good to hear it worked well for you. I've yet to try either but still curious.

The price really isn't where it needs to be yet. I used OnLive when that was still a thing, and I gave LiquidSky a go.

OnLive was crap but that other service that got bought out by sony was a great experience on the same connection and computer in a browser no less. Back then I only had 10/1, now 100/10 seems to be the norm. Streaming games is no longer a technical hurdle, it is an economic hurdle, the ideal package would be a single charge per hour but you have access to a broad games library included.

This is $0.40 per hour for a Windows virtual machine where you can install games yourself so there's no library of games other than those you purchase. I'm questioning spending up to $2000 to buy a desktop versus using a remote VM.

How's your internet connection?
