My Onlive Experience




The picture pretty much sums it up.

Constant stuttering with popups telling me my internet connection isn't good enough.

If anyone is wondering, my ISP is Verizon (FiOs) with advertised speeds of 25 Mbps.


Guess it's back to Starcraft 2
(not so bad)

  1. Might be a Firewall issue? Or maybe a router issue?

  2. I would say you have to open a port on your router.

  11. yeah i figured Onlive would be a bust, they are just a little ahead of their time.

  12. Awh, that sucks :( But you should check so it isn't a firewall-/router-problem like AnnoNeuvo and Nie Mand said

  13. I don't understand why internet service providers are allowed to tell us they're giving us a highest best-case-scenario speed that the network may reach, which frankly they rarely are, and at the same time not providing us with a service that even works. shouldn't there be some class action lawsuits I can get on?

    Anyway back to starcraft indeed, time for my SCV RUSH! http://candyandvideogames.blogspot.com/ :P

  18. like I said, they make you pay to pay to play, in this case they make you pay to pay to see a "sorry" screen.
