Would you like to play The Witcher 2 in a browser window on just about any internet-connected computer? How about Saints Row The Third, Sniper Ghost Warrior, Orcs Must Die or Dead Rising 2 Off the Record? What about Farming Simulator?
Well, thanks to Dave Perry’s Gaikai (remember his bandanas on Gamesmaster?) and Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard prank that is Facebook, you can. Almost. Right now, it just appears to be demos but we’re told that soon enough, you’ll be able to play full on console quality (or better!) games in between poking old schoolmates and work colleagues that really don’t want to talk to you but accepted your friend request to see how fat you’d become in the 14 years since you last spoke with them. I mean, on Facebook.
Fancy slapping someone with a huge purple dildo on your work PC? Saints Row The Third on Gaikai has you covered, just make sure you minimize it back to those spreadsheets when your boss is walking around.
