I've been looking for alternatives to another similar cloud gaming service (they're also in early access, but the PR/business model is getting more and more uh, frightening...) and I was looking to try this out! 3 day trial? Sweet!
Uuuuunfortunately I've tried several times yesterday and today to get in, with no luck... I get placed in the queue (5-7 minutes) then it says Initializing network (~10 minutes) then Loading games (~5 minutes, but it says its loading 600 games??) then Loading Steam, followed by Updating Steam (yea every time, another 5 minutes) then just loading for a minute or two, then it gets stuck at Establishing connection for about 20+ minutes (at some point an error message flashes along the bottom too fast for me to read "failed to something something cloud something") and by the time I get in, I've timed out, and gotten kicked back to login...
This is the free trial, mind you. My first impression. I've never actually seen a desktop or gameplay.
Is the chrome extension the only option? dont get me wrong, chrome is great n' all, but its not exactly... stable... and it hogs memory like crazy. do i need to keep chrome itself open or just that extension? (I closed the browser but the extension stayed up)
If this is anywhere near a normal startup (~30-40 minutes) I could have myself a small gaming session while I wait for my gaming session
(extra note: I typically have ~80mbps down, speed test here says 30+, still more than enough - and im on 5ghz wifi, no packet loss. I dont even know my ping because it never gets to a screen where I can test that, but suffice to say, my connection is pretty fast/stable. I'm on the US East servers)
