(for now) Jam.gg (previously known as PiePacker) bring social reteo gaming to more than 2 million users. All you have to do is log on with a social account to get started.

Some of the games on offer on Jam.gg include:

  • Xeno Crisis

More games will be coming soon too. I gave Xeno Crisis a thorough playthrough and it was pretty much flawless with very little input lag, it supports keyboard controls, and also supports various control pads you can connect to your computer and start playing in your browser. Perfect for some weekend downtime with your mates!

Bring your own games to Jam.GG

The best feature of this Netflix style service, you can load your own roms from a local drive and play them online with friends too. This super neat feature currently supports SNES, PS1, Nintendo 64, GBA, Genesis, NES, Master System and Game Boy. There is a raft of support for all the usual filetypes and roms.

To get started, all you have to do is create a room on Jam.gg and choose your rom, you can also choose from lots of fun video filters when you are streaming and playing with your mates too. Please keep in mind, this feature seems to be an early access addition, and maybe a paid feature later in the year, but this is a great time to get started!
