    Soo, my net speed is a tiny bit faster than before.. fast enough to run OnLive "just about" lol.

    But even with this shitty speed, I must say I am impressed! I may start buying games on there and stuff.

    I got a few questions, how safe is it to use credit card on there? Paypal option isnt available :/
    and explain to me some of the offers :D

    here is a 854x480 video I recorded. Pretty shit quality.. but oh well.

    Do you think OnLive would still be running if it wasn't safe to use credit cards on there?

    What happened?

    For me, I'm slowly starting to go to the direction of OnLive. I would say they're reliable and you can trust them with your card details. I've bought myself the Playpack bundle for £2 (which you might have unfortunately missed out on, since the offer ended on the 27 April), which means 200+ games for £2, and I've bought about 10 full games and those games perform and look better than the console counterparts, because you're practically playing the PC version mainly, and you can switch controls seamlessly.

    Also, what's your speed? Mine's on 9Mbps down and the graphics are superb. I get the occasional lag sometimes, but only when someone in the house uses the Internet, so I get the best quality when I'm home alone.

    If you had any "issues" with them, they're either you being paranoid or you screwin' up. OnLive is a pretty huge and reputable service. They make more money being legit than trying to screw a few people out of their CC info.

    You can always talk to their superb Live Chat support. I'm sure your issues will be solved through that.

    I guess the only time you can accuse OnLive of getting money from you is when you forget to cancel your auto monthly PlayPack subscription. But they remind you by e-mail anyway.

    So what has your credit card got to do with something happening to your password? You're not making much sense.
