How to stream games from your PC to an Android phone or tablet: Diablo 3, Battlefield 4, League of Legends
What would you give to have the awesome games you are used to play on your PC streamed to your Android device, regardless of if it is a phone or a tablet, though slates would be much more preferable, of course. Have your expensive card crunch the graphics, and use your comfortable to hold Android gear to play your favorites from the couch, how does that sound?

Well, if you don't have an Nvidia Shield, you can just use an app now, called Remotr. It will stream your game visuals over the home's Wi-Fi connection to your Android phone or tablet, letting you map whatever controls you like, with gamepad support coming down the road. Here's what you need to do:

1. Download and install the Remotr.exe streamer software on your personal computer (Windows 7 or up required). You should see its orange icon running in the system tray like this:

2. Hook your Android gear to the same Wi-Fi network your computer is on;

2. Install the Remotr app on your Android device, and fire it up. A list of computers running the Remotr software will appear, tap the one you want to connect to:


3. At first run, Remotr will try and locate all games you have installed, then populate them in the app's game grid. This might take a while, but afterwards things will be much faster, and you should be seeing something like this:



4. All you have to do next is start having fun with the control creator, as the default touchscreen controls might not be to your liking - a car game differs from complex strategies, after all. Remotr comes bundled with presets for many popular games like Diablo III, League of Legends, racing simulators, and so on, so you can start using it on the spot. The developers promise gamepad support and the ability to stream over a mobile data connection, so keep your eyes peeled for those.

lol, though it would be easy to see I was joking with the "m@d" and the 1v1 me :P i personally do enjoy lol, despite the toxic community(its terrible) but Its so good when you make a small plan with your randoms and they follow your lead and win, the satisfaction of ordering a counter dragon or a baron rush or a fast push, and see you gained something its awesome, I'm gold, I do ranked just for bragging rights but I try to avoid it... normals and draft mode are good enough for me to enjoy myself and the capability of trying out stuff without ruining someone's promotion its fine. I would still appreciate if the people on it where a bit more mentally stable. the game has changed quite a lot tough, and DFG is gone

ohh man wish you would have added this info in this post.. without this, streaming is not much useful .. ok well here it is then you can use this to play games in cheap Virtual Reality .. buy google cardboard for 10 $ or a better plastic version for 30-40 $ use trinus gyre and tri def 3d app for PC .. this will convert your 2d game into SBS 3d mode.. around 900 games are supported including all popular dx9/dx10/dx11 titles stream any old or new 2d game you like in Virtual Reality with stereoscopic 3d https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1uVsMI0wdohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Xqpba91DAE now don't expect it to be like occulus rift .. but still it is a very cool experience
