I've been interested in streaming games services since 2010 with OnLive, which was also available for Mac, but since it's closure there hasn't really been an alternative. Enter NVIDIA GeForce Now, a new cloud gaming service that allows you to play games from your Steam and Battle.net libraries.

 

I personally really enjoy what NVIDIA GeForce Now is bringing to the table. Providing a means to play the games I already own and can purchase from Steam and Battle.net is what cloud gaming should be. They have a list of supported games, but you can easily install and run any unsupported game you own in Steam and Battle.net, and I would fully expect big titles like Destiny 2 to be officially supported as well.

 

NVIDIA GeForce Now doesn't use any of your local hardware, and instead streams the game to you from a remote Windows PC provided by the service that is running high-end NVIDIA GPUs and Hardware, providing a very smooth and enjoyable gaming experience. You can sign-up for beta here: https://www.nvidia.c...rce-now/mac-pc/

 

You can also see an in-depth look at NVIDIA GeForce Now below, where I try out Overwatch, Warframe, and the new Dark and Light.

Now we know why nVidia still has not released any webdriver for 10.13.  :P  As I said, they have interests elsewhere.  :yes:

 

On a more serious note, Cloud Gaming is nothing new... I would even say it is a logical next after the establishment of various solutions of clouding.

 

Nevertheless, thanks for the article and the video.  ;)

The NVIDIA GeForce Now service provides the High-End Windows PC which is equipped with 1080s. There's a free beta you can sign up for here: https://www.nvidia.c...rce-now/mac-pc/

Does this mean they have finally figured out faster-than-lightspeed-travel internet? Cloud gaming will be inferior (and useless for multiplayer gaming) if they haven't.

Works great from my experience. Played a bunch of multiplayer games, no issues here.

If you want to jump the wait list and test out the GeForce Now for Mac service you can do so here:

  1. Create: an NVIDIA account at rewardsportal.nvidia.com/account/create (if you don’t already have one)
  2. Visit: rewardsportal.nvidia.com/login
  3. Redeem: Use code -  WMHO-WJLT-XBGA-CYIS-NNNR-KWXK
  4. Download & Install: follow the directions to download and install the GeForce NOW Mac Beta app
  5. Launch & Log-In: open the app and log-in to your NVIDIA account
  6. Play: Select any game from the ALL GAMES tab that you own and you’ll be playing in moments
