does anyone use shadow game streaming service

Posted 4 Months ago by Panty Tight Kitten

I looked into some videos on YouTube about it but 90% of them were sponsored so I don't trust them. I have an Okay internet connection and I want to try games that aren't available on Switch. Essentially, they build a PC for you and you get to stream that PC on any device you have. They make it sound like you wouldn't get an input lag but who knows.

Have any of you guys tried it or tried something similar?

It seems ok, and probably where alot of things are headed as Cloud technology is becoming more in demand.

It says that Shadow requires a stable connection with a speed of at least 15 Mbit/s on their website so it doesn't seem like too much of a bandwidth hog however I still feel like you are going to have some input lag. It also probably matters on where their servers are located and how much bandwidth they have allocated for thier servers.

iirc, nvidia has some kind of similar service where they don't just build a PC for you, but they build it with whatever their cutting-edge graphics card is.

They do but the problem is you can only play the games they support. Which isn't bad, but I was hoping to play Oblivion.

Yeah, I'm wondering about that too. With Control: Cloud Edition the latency isn't bad but sometimes it slows down, even though my connection is over 100 Mbps
