Apparently there have been a lot of naysayers and the OnLive team is prickling about it so they are explaining in more detail how much work they've done over the years and why this will work. Etc.. check it out if you're interested. I personally tend to give people more "benefit of the doubt" points than your average Joe as in the case of Darkfall, I didn't think it was vaporware, though I still havent bought the game. In the case of Metaplace, I don't think its vaporware, I just don't know how far its going to go yet, and in the case of OnLive I feel pretty similar to Metaplace. It may really catch on or not depending on marketing, licensing hitches, distribution, lag, and other issues. We'll see.
In other news, I played book 2 through with my guardian and my kin awith no healer and just my buddy Dan on his burgla doing healing conjunctions. Burglar heals ftw! It actually is a really fun and daring way to try and do instances since your heals are less guaranteed but still effective.
