Given the huge improvement this update provides, it's safe to say that Linux is currently the best platform to play Mad Max on.

Is every game that is a bit challenging going to be compared to Dark Souls nowadays?

Snoost makes good use of the GRID Cloud Gaming GPU from NVidia. (And also Xeon CPUs)

First experience with Snoost: pretty good. I tried the service with Strider, one of the few games I still can't get running on Linux and given that it's a hard and very fast paced action platformer, the stream should be very responsive… and it is!

Liam from +Gaming On Linux had a less than ideal experience with the service so YMMV, especially if you're not in a big city with fast internet.

With a good setup, everything is smooth. Controllers are supported as you would expect with Steam streaming and there was a little bit of screen tearing but nothing too noticeable.

The only problem I have with the service is the price. They advertise the service to cost $0.95 per day but it's actually $29 monthly. I would consider subscribing to the service if it was billed per day instead of per month, otherwise, cut the crap and don't advertise your service to be $0.95/day.

I'm giving the gaming cloud service Snoost a try. If you'd like to try it as well and get an extra free week, you can use the referral code SNKJA when signing up. That should give you 10 days total if using the code keeps the default 3 free days. Also, I don't know if the code can be used multiple time so it's first come first served.

VMWare Workstation Player's modules won't compile on kernel 4.9 and above, these patches will fix this. Tested successfully on Ubuntu 17.04.
