OnLive's 'in the cloud' gaming service

High-end gaming on just about any PC or Mac, all streamed to your system through a tiny desktop client? That's the promise of OnLive, a remarkable but controversial new "in the cloud" gaming service that launched this month. I've been playing big-name titles like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Unreal Tournament III and Red Faction: Guerrilla on my middle-of-the road MacBook Pro for almost a week now and have some hands-on impressions.

I've been pretty jazzed about the idea behind OnLive ever since the service was first announced more than a year ago. The concept is ambitious. Using a backbone of server farms spread across the country, all armed with banks of ultra high-end gaming PCs, OnLive aims to stream the hottest PC games straight to your desktop or laptop, even on systems without souped-up graphics cards or bleeding-edge processors.
