@Astras: Neither of those videos are called Quick Look Throwbacks. Those are 2 new features.

Quicklook throwback... looking at a random old pc game then?? simelar no?

oh wow a quick look throwback with a pc game??

http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-throwback-deus-ex/17-4676/

and another one??

If you actually bother to follow videogame news in the slightest, the Deus Ex quicklook (which, at the time had just been re-released on steam with a fancy HD-texture patch) was done right before the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Zero Punctuation did the exact same thing. It wasn't done out of some random whim. Also, a lot of the other PC quicklooks tend to very suspiciously appear whenever there's a Steam sale on at that exact moment.

Quit trolling already.

Really, if you see absolutely no similarity in the videos they have done before to the new members only random pc game format - such as :

  • Mount and blade
  • Total war

etc etc

Then fair enough dude!

It's getting a bit dissapointing!

Why are you getting disappointed exactly? Because a site doesn't want to give you additional free content? Why should they?

Quicklook throwbacks were free conent last year!

Sorry, can you point me to one of these Premium only Quick Look Throwbacks?

you refuse to give them money, so we're supposed to fel sorry for you? People realise that you dont actually have to pony up 50bucks, you can just pay 5 bucks a month...its 5 bucks.

There's other way's sites make money, other than directly asking there fanbase for money from their wallets. And i'm not talking about Kane and Lynch 2 kind of strategies.

It seems now every other video that I click I keep getting the "You are not a member, You cannot watch this you fcing dirty, scrounger.. you should give us your money so we can carry on playing internets together"

Seriously though, I refuse to give money to a website directly, but it definitely feels like the new range of vids such as:

  • Reload our last save
  • Older game throwback

It's getting a bit dissapointing!

I have read that Dragon Age Origin and Mass effect were on the Onlive service in the US.

I have just registered with the UK service and I am really impressed with it, however there are no Bioware games, does anyone know what happened here? and are these games coming back to Onlive?

I have been looking for info on this and can't seem to find any answers.
