I read an article saying that in the not-too-distant future more and more games will be streamed. You play the game in your browser. Their servers, not your computer, do the heavy work. Nothings needs to be installed and an old computer will play the game as well as a new one, provided you have a relatively fast internet connection.
Yeah 100Mb is a bare minimum for lag free experience. Its just like Nvidia stream.

There are currently Datacenters in London that offers this feature. 50mbit was recommended if i recall correctly.

The specific company is also something I forgot about.

That's exactly what I read too. Just one thing. By 50mbps I assume they mean down. What about up? Is there a minimum for that?

Tonight a new repack of Dishonored 2, released in 2017, is available on the forum. Game version is v1.77.9.
Decompression is more reliable, no error found for the moment (it's slightly bigger than the previous repack, the game is a bit bigger too, with the patches). It will be available soon.
In case the installer crashes (although tests were successful, it can happen if ram is too low), restart the install.
It's only 18.8 Gb  (the previous repack was 17.4 Gb), way smaller than fitgirl's repack. The videos were re-encoded (70% of the original), visually it's not different. Note that only tutorial videos were re-encoded, it doesn't affect the quality of the in-game videos.
I've deleted 8gb of data  (the biggest file of the game), no soundtracks removed, no textures removed, no levels removed,  it seems the shared resources (this file was named sharedresources...), are not useful and in fact I'm wondering what this file could be used for, apparently the game is perfectly working, no glitch, I tested it (note that on the forum Xentax they didn't find what this file could be used for either).

Note that a new repack of the Evil within 2 could be available soon too.

Today, a new repack is available on the forum, titled Call of Duty advanced Warfare.
I know that humbert dislikes FPS, but I imagine that shadow.97 might be interested in this.

trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0C2cG30FBas

only 22.8 Gb. Nothing was ripped.

Tonight, an AIO repack for Amnesia - The dark descent & Amnesia - A machine for pigs is available on the forum.
This repack is smaller (25%) than the repacks of the two separate games. For both games shortcuts are installed.
Note that map_cache files were deleted.
Warning: If you play in a dark room, set the brightness/contrast to the right level, wear headphones, then the game might be scary for some users.

The previous repacks are still available here for some time: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg28755#msg28755


Only 1.57 Gb

Amnesia - the Dark Descent








Amnesia - A machine for pigs
This is the sequel of the game Amnesia, the dark descent (that was considered for some as one of the most frightening games ever released).






The death of Sardanapalus

I'd say that you're wrong.
I set up a VPN at home, and could play at distance with below 100mbit on the receiving end. I was at my cousins house.

(Steam home stream over vpn)
My estimation is that it was around 30 mbit. Ofcourse not top quality, and it was 768p.
Ping around 3~5ms as it was within my hometown and using fiber.
This was a few years ago when steam home stream was new. Was playing GTA 5 this way when we were having birthday parties.

Did you do this using your router or with VPN software?

OpenVPN on the same machine that the game was streamed from.

Even with OFC the pings are around 10-50ms. For a single user 30-50Mbps is more than enough. For a household you need 100Mbps when everyone uses the same WiFi AP continuously streaming/downloading/uploading stuffs.
