Getting Dirty 2 with OnLiVe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8sVcrFzvVE#ws)

click on the playing video above to watch it at YouTube with a larger screen at higher resolution, you'll be glad you did.

OnLiVe.com is a new 'cloud' service for gamers, typically geared to people who don't have performance computers to handle high end games. For us regulars it offers a quick way to view demos. For a limited time you can sign up on OnLiVe for a free membership in their 'Founders Program'. You'll need a credit card.

While the demo selection is limited, there are a couple of games worth taking a look at and in my book Dirt 2 is one of them. You'll need to replace the batteries in your pace maker tho before attempting to play the game, as it IS fast and IS furious.

Dirt2 Demo: For the demo I think the first race track is the best as it's urban, but you choose and let us know what you think. I've edited the loading time for the game in this video, yes the game has to load but it does that at OnLiVe and not on your computer.

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://www.dirt2game.com/
RATINGS: E for everyone
MODE: Single and Multiplayer (8 players with full version).

OnLive Official Website: http://www.onlive.com
PLATFORMS: Mac and PC, need decent internet connection.

What's not so great about OnLiVe is this... you buy a game at OnLiVe and they keep it. In order to play your game you have to pay the 'landlord' a membership fee... WHAA? Yeah, so if you're looking at alternatives check out steam, but there is hope that maybe OnLiVe will get real, otherwise it'll be a service for just those ppl without good consoles or computers.

Note: Dirt 2 is available on STEAM for the PC only.

Of course you could just buy the game.
