So, I got an email earlier saying I got into the X-cloud preview, and…it’s ok? I’m not going to lie, it’s exactly what anyone bemoaning streaming is expecting. Latency is there, and I wouldn’t want to play anything competitive on it, but it works. I’ve only played 3 games on it so far…KI, Tekken 7, and Halo 5. When I first booted up KI I was met with a pretty lousy first impression. There was something weird going on with the inputs where it wouldn’t register 2 button presses at the same time, so throws and Shadow moves were super inconsistent. It cleared up after I tried booting the game up again later. The lag was definitely there, but I did test playing online, and it was low enough that I couldn’t tell if I was losing due to being rusty or due to the lag, so I guess that could give some sort of idea as to how it is.
I can’t say much about Tekken 7. I never played it before this, so…the video quality was good…
On Halo 5 I played a round of Swat against my son on our Xbox One. Same story there…aiming seemed kinda jerky, but it wasn’t bad enough to make the game unplayable.
But yeah, overall I’d say it’s fine if you’re looking for a casual experience, but I’d avoid it like the plague if you’re wanting to play competitively.
