Just wanted to point out there is another option.... that is FREE. - Dolby Axon. https://axon.dolby.com/

We use it in our group. While it may not have all the features of vent or TS it's simple, easy to use, and you can create persistent chat rooms.

One neat feature is that access to the chat room is controller by invitation, not password.

PC Gamers / Who wants free PC games? (legally)

The economy is tough, your budget is tight but you still wanna get your game on. What's a gamer to do?

Download your games for free! No, I'm not referring to wares or pirating. There is a multitude of high quality free to play games available (you just have to know where to look).....these aren't your grand daddy's games!

I maintain a list here for all that are interested: http://www.squidoo.com/pc_games_free

Even though this thread is ancient, I'm going to reply anyone since it's still technically on the first page.

I stopped using the xfire client when they sold it to another company. The updates became pretty much non existent at that point.

Now I use Raptr, which is another IM client for gamers. The benefit of raptr is that it's "one ring to rule them all" so to speak. With it you can login to multiple chat services through one client.

It supports:

  • Raptr
  • Xbox LIve
  • PSN
  • Steam
  • Xfire
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • AIM
  • Google Talk
  • MSN Messenger
  • Yahoo Messenger
  • ICQ

...all from a single client.

Yeah, i think you re my only friend on there fury, Punisher didn't accept me so the next time I see him he's gonna get it.

yea i never get on because no one else does?  But I sure will if more people would use it.  its a good gaming tool.

My sentiments exactly... I can't quite put my finger on it... but something changed....

Sometimes I think it did have a lot to do with wanting to play a lag free game during dial up days.... part of it I attribute to people getting married and having kids which demolishes the PC upgrade fund.

Or perhaps MMORPGs killed LAN parties...



Yeah PC gaming was alive and kicking in OK back in the day..

TulsaLAN every month pulling in 20-60 people a month

Atomic Mods and their branch of gamers (10-20) who played frequently, whatever happened to Arlen, Grant and all those (OLD) guys that played RTCW?

PC Extreme LAN in Lawton, OK was fun as ♥♥♥♥♥, like 100-200 gamers the couple years they did it.


There is something about these newer games that just aren't as much fun on LAN as the old ones. Or maybe it was living with dial-up internet access and looking forward to some lag-free gaming every month and opportunity it presented itself.

Not sure what it was, but I know a lot of us who were heavily into the PC gaming scene grew up but something changed. Most recent LAN's I have been too the games are so splintered. A handful in CoD, handful in Battlefield, handful in something more obscure.

Used to we just played whatever new came out for a few hours TOGETHER. Everyone just wanted to pack as many of us into a server as we could fit, then frag away. Now, I feel as if most people have the mentality that if we're not playing my game of choice I'm not going to play.

I guess bottom line the fun feels like its been sucked out of it. Before I would be happy to tear down my rig, truck it to a LAN, set it up, break it down again and bring it back inside in the wee hours of the AM because of all the fun I was guaranteed. Lately, the work has not been worth the fun returned at LAN parties.
