What is Xfire?

Xfire is a free gaming tool that automatically keeps track of when and where gamers are playing PC games online and lets their friends join them easily. It doesn't matter which online game your friends are playing, which server browser they are using, or which gaming service they're playing on; Xfire is intelligent enough to recognize where your friends are at any time.

I guess you could look at it that way.

Default Re: Anyone Use Xfire?

yeah, but as far as I know it just warns you once every 7 days to buy it or wait another 7 days... so you can keep using it, just with that minor anoyance. And I think it has limits on some features.

Actually, unless they changed it recently, it used to have limits on the number of buddies you could have, so this Xfire program is probably still useful.

Xfire is free and is not limited at all I don't think. Well, you guys can try it and see how you like it if you want.
