I’ve been away from my main PC with just my Chromebook, so I’ve been experimenting with distance-gaming via two methods - GeForce Now, and Moonlight.
GeForce Now is a subscription service which lets you play a subset of your Steam and EGS games (a fairly small subset), but it included Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, so I’ve signed up for a month. At 1080/60 is provides a pretty solid but not faultless stream. I’d say it was slightly worse than Stadia for having tried that, both in terms of responsiveness and stream quality. However it is clear the machine at the other end is a lot beefier and has RTX and so on, which Stadia does not. Certainly it’s good enough for play a RtwP or turn-based game like Pathfinder, though I might have to give a shooter a go just to see how it is (Stadia was just fine with Hitman 2, albeit a bit ugly in the dark scenes because of the compression).
Moonlight is a DIY streaming solution. You need a GeForce videocard and take advantage of something to do with Nvidia Shield, anyway it lets you stream from your PC to another device - my upload is fairly crap from my home PC like - 6 to 9 mbps - so I have to use 1280x720 but sometimes get pretty good framerates (like 60fps), albeit stuff sometimes get blurry even at that resolution due to compression. I can use it to play FFXIV though, which is really nice. It’s responsive and reliable enough that I haven’t had any problems.
So my review is basically positive! Certainly worth trying if you have a solid connection.
Re: Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous my opinion on it remains very positive, albeit with a couple of caveats - specifically that it is pretty misleading difficulty-wise - “Core” looks like it will be similar to actual Pathfinder, but in fact it’s got a lot of bullshit buffs to the enemy which reach pretty ludicrous levels and require you to be an insane min-maxer. I’d suggest selecting “Normal” difficulty, then just adjusting damage to 1.0, Enemy Stat Adjustment should remain at “Moderately Weaker” (which is where it’s closest to actual Pathfinder) and probably put criticals to normal. The second caveat is that the writing is pretty good (better than the previous game despite the absence of Avellone etc. - he got quietly removed early on - the actual credits show the main writers were all Russian and I suspect the English translators were pretty great), but the way they handle alignment is a problem for certain classes, especially Paladins, which is quite complicated to explain, but ends up with a situation where virtually all the “Lawful” options read like Lawful Evil ones, “Good” ones like particularly hippy Neutral Good ones, “Evil” ones are “Stupid Evil” and “Chaotic” is often LOLSORANDOM (but does have some pretty great stuff at least!).
It’s also still go plenty of bugs, so could stand to wait for a while (they’re a lot less obvious than the previous game, but do exist).
Still, it’s really fun if you like this sort of game.
