The lag is unplayable, ive never had this problem w them other cloud gaming platforms, and it keeps downloading something every time i open fortnite, its the first game im testing, i hope its because the service is on beta, and they fix the problems asap.
Wow the quality of this video is insane, you deserve way more subs bro! Thanks for the in depth review–I think I'll just stick with GFN for now
I have spent this week testing cloud gaming. So far. Out of Luna, Geforce now "free", and xcloud. Xcloud is by far the worst. Worst pixelation, looks like 720p or just bad bitrate. And even gave me Ghost recon wildlands today at 720p AND 30fps. Its good for playing on mobile. But not for anything bigger than that in my experience. Iv tried it multiple times. Its not 1080p. Its just not.
For me thus far in my testing. Its Geforce now clearly in the lead. Luna is a strong second. Xcloud is lacking big time and does not look good at all, despite being responsive enough. It didnt run any game as good as either of the others. My main testing game was ghost recon wildlands. Which is not very well optimized, but it showed the real differences between them. However, resident evil 2 remake on luna, felt and looked amazing. No pixelation at all, looked native. And I had no way to test input lag since I dont own that game. But it was very good. Xcloud…is really behind.
It seems like you feel like boosteroid is worse, so thanks for reviewing it. I will avoid it for now. I do know they have a deal with asus and will be getting 4k and 60-240fps sometime possbily in 2023. Maybe more server centers so more people can get optimal experiences. Who knows. But im excited to see where cloud gaming goes.
*Edit. Yeah so, i paid for a month of boosteroid just to test it. Now I see why they dont offer any kind of trial. Unable to maintain 60fps in valheim at 1080p? Really? It was a mess and felt worse than any other cloud streaming service I have tried. It was awful. Definitely deserving of the bottom spot. Which is sad, because they support many more cool games. Bioshock, Dark souls. Stuff the others dont support. I hope they do well with their partnership with Asus and get some better hardware and stuff to run things. And optimize their interface better. Cause compared to the others. Its just…not as good. They arent a big mega corporation. So hopefully they put it into gear and get up to speed sooner rather than later. Cheers!
I've just started testing this as really fancy a replay of RDR 2. I got it up and running fine via my Nvidia Shield, but did notice a fair bit of input lag on first session. Restarted and it was better but still there at times.
Also am noticing a big difference in the speedtest between what the app was saying (50 ish) compared to what I get with Ookla etc (usually 400+).
Is it really smoother on chromebooks than windows laptops?
Thanks for the review Dorgaon. Just wondering – have you ever made a video about PS remote play? Do you think it's a viable way to game on a mobile device?
Great listen… don't often hear analysis of these aspects of Boosteroid, but it's sad for the result of the current sphere of cloud gaming to be so… underwhelming
Great Honest Review. I didnt know there was a pay wall behind seeing what games are on boosteroid…
Thank you for doing this review.
Top work sir. Really emjoyed it
Great vid 😁
Your personal negative experience does not negate thousands of positive reviews online. Too bad you couldn't enjoy playing, but it does not mean everybody else won't as well.
Hmm, really strange, for me all work well, didn't have any problem with input lag or picture quality. Most likely you are far from the server or there are some speed limits don't know, strange 😵😵😵
Great video mate!
Regarding the speedtest: I think the Boosteroid speedtest is to your closest DC, whereas Ooklas is to the closest edgenode they have, meaning results are expected to vary between them. BUT, your differences seem strange! The results should be closer than that.
Sad to see you didn't have a good experience! Maybe it's the fact that I'm in the same town as their closest data center… IDK… But for me, it's been VERY close to GeForce Now. Meaning butter smooth with rare occasional stutters or slight artifacting. And I can't for the life of me figure out why it WOULDN'T run well for you.
On my Android phone, in the app, touch support in windows (while clunky) works perfectly, making launching games easy enough. On my PCs and Chromebooks, no trouble at all. So I have NO idea how we have such different experiences! I've even had great experiences on 4G, both via the Android app and via tethering to my laptop.
The difference from user to user is insanely hard to understand and solve I think. Wish it was as plug and play for everyone around the world as it's been for me.
Personally, I've come to terms with the PC-Bring-Your-Own-Games cloud services. It means I can bring my games to another service or locally, should I have access to a local machine that runs it. Did I prefer Stadia? Yes. But at least I still have my games with Steam, Epic etc.
