IM for Gamers

I've been checking out the new instant messaging program called Xfire. Xfire looks to be the must have messaging tool for gamers.

Xfire understands games and can tell when you are playing a game. Your friends can see your status and see what you are playing. If your friend wants to join you, they can join you on the same server.

For example, if you are playing Call of Duty on a specific server, Xfire allows your friend to see what server you are on and join it easily. This is truly revolutionary for gamers. No more exchange of IP addresses, just a simple point and click. This is a great thing for guilds and clans.

Besides see your friends, you can see the friends of your friends, increasing your group of potential teammates. I haven't played with Xfire extensively, but it looks to be a great tool once I have more friends using it.

So if you are a gamer, and a friend of mine, download Xfire and add me as a friend. I'm Argyle on Xfire. This means you BillB...
