OnLive Weekend Sale Sees DNF, AvP Reduced to $5, More

There's nothing like a hot bargain, especially when a top-dollar rig isn't required. Enthusiasts and system builders shouldn't consider OnLive as a threat, but merely a means to reach out to gamers who don't necessarily have the funds to get the latest AMD or Nvidia card, or the latest multi-core Intel or AMD CPU. What's more, OnLive games can be played on tablets and smartphones, making the cloud-based titles a great multi-platform purchase.

Now through Monday, OnLive's President's Day sale features forty-two games with prices ranging between $29.99 and $2.25. Given these PC games are cloud-based, there's no installation required save for OnLive's client. Additionally, these prices are for the "Full Pass" versions, meaning they're yours to keep without restrictions. Here's the full list:

    A lot of good deals, but DNF @ $5 is still overpriced. D:

    Just tried it again. Still laggy as hell.. I'd definitely be interested if not for the lag. Although, might buy it just so I can play skyrim at work. Not really a game where lag is a huge deal. On a side note, I have a wired xbox 360 connected up to a low end pc at work, and it works great with it, no need to set it up or anything, onlive picks it up even works in onlives menu system, so thats pretty cool. :)
