Default OnLive Gaming on Demand to rival consoles

I've been playing OnLive off and on for the last year roughly. It's a great service as long as you've a decent enough internet connection to utilize it, as well as a decent PC. Nothing uber needs to be used, but something decent at least. It's definitely a nice alternative to console gaming as well as always having to install a demo to play it. It's called "OnLive" because that's what it is, it runs like a live disc over the internet. Great demos, great games, great service. I like it
