hmm, only thing is i cant see my friends from Steam and XBL. of course, i should have figured that lol.

we should start a thread here in the gaming section where people can post their Raptr usernames.

then we can track each other everywhere, not just Steam lol

I already have Messenger, Steam, GFWL and XFire (and Rockstar Social Club when playing GTA IV) at the same time, I don't need more "social platforms"

I talked a bit about it, in regards to it coming on the Call of Duty World at War disc, however it never really caught on

This replaces them all (well, most) in one app. XFire, Windows Live, MSN, they all work through one app . So it's not more, it's less, and less is more
