It looks like OnLive Community Manager Matt Jensen (OnLive MJ) is still alive, as he held a livecast yesterday. The main talk of the livecast was OnLive MultiView and the new games, especially the Sid Meier's Civilization V Bundle.
Here are the main points of the livecast:
- OnLive MJ is still alive.
- OnLiveFans.com partnered with Child's Play to do a charity event this Saturday.
- OnLive MJ is getting a hair cut today.
- OnLive MJ used Alt + M to bring up OnLive MultiView, it brought up one of his teammates from Homefront, someone from group voice chat and someone from his friends list. For what it's worth, MJs version of the UI seems identical to the current OnLive UI, except he has MultiView, so if there is an overhaul coming they hid it.
- You can change the MultiView windows to other things such as friends, group voice chat and so forth. It's really easy to cycle through them to look at other people, there are pretty much all the sorting options the Arena has.
- OnLive MJ can beatbox.
- Saints Row: The Third MultiView brought up his Co-Op partner and also some other random people, after all it is still a beta.
- OnLive MultiView really is just exactly like spectating from the Arena, but side by side with your game play.
- You can sign up for the OnLive MultiView beta at www.onlive.com/beta/login
for the US and www.onlive.co.uk/beta/login for the UK.
- OnLive MJ thanked gamers for their patience over the OnLive data center maintenance that is mainly affecting the Brag Clips and occasionally access to other OnLive features.
- Sid Meier's Civilization V came out on Tuesday in the US, UK gets it at 12:01 BST on Friday.
- Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings came out too, you can buy it and get Sid Meier's Civilization V for free. The base Sid Meier's Civilization V game is in the OnLive PlayPack.
- Pineapple Smash Crew is in the PlayPack, as are Syder Arcade and Zeno Clash.
- London 2012 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games is REALLY REALLY coming soon to OnLive.
- Darksiders II pre-order is also coming REALLY REALLY REALLY soon. During the first week of the pre-order you will get a free OnLive Game System and you will also get an upgrade to the limited edition of Darksiders II.
