Shadow Tech gaming PC Diary Week 1
Neil talks about his Shadow Tech cloud-based gaming PC experiences in his new weekly diary devoted to the cloud-based service. Shadow Tech released their service in the UK earlier this year, and the team reviewed it here.
However, Neil thought the service being offered by Shadow Tech was so good that he subscribed during the review podcast.
As a result, he is now the proud owner of a Shadow Tech cloud-based PC and has also bought a Shadow box, which he will be recording an unboxing of, to test out everything Shadow has to offer.
For the past couple of weeks, Neil has been playing various games on the service, and he discusses his initial thoughts in the podcast below. Shadow Tech give you a Windows 10 PC and let you do whatever you want to do, legally. So, for example, you can install Steam, Origin and Battle.net to name but a few services. But you can also install games from GOG on your Shadow Tech machine and, if you mess things up, you can completely reset the PC when you need to. However, if you take regular snapshots, think of these as backups, you can then roll back should you encounter problems.
Shadow Tech has created an app that works on Windows, iOS, Android and Linux, giving you the flexibility to run your cloud-based gaming pc on some platforms when out and about. Of course, you would have to be sitting in front of a decent screen and have a keyboard and mouse, but this isn’t a limitation as you would need these for most games on PC anyway.
Shadow Tech has created an open platform for you to use as you see fit and there possibilities outside of gaming, such as video editing where you could use the cloud-based service too.
All of this comes at a reasonable price of just £26.95 a month in the UK, and similar prices in other supported countries. The Shadow Box comes in at just under £110 and allows you to game using their dedicated device too.
