For us avid gamers, there are always those times when friends are online, but they are playing something else. The old ways of chatting - i.e. instant messenger - will screw up just about any MMO game or at least cause you to lose out on something... But now, there is a way for all of us to communicate with our gamer friends all the time - even when we're gaming!

    Xifre is the way to chat...

    It never fails... there you are, playing your hardest, fighting mobs that are way over your level, and you're almost there... when JohnnyJoeBob* IM's you and causes your game to lag so that you lose the battle... Now, you don't get the epic loot you were after, you don't get that xp blast you wanted, and you'll have to wait for that mob to respawn in, oh... several hours.  But, he's your friend, so what do you do?

    It's no secret to hard core gamers that instant messaging can really mess you up at the most inopportune time.  Yet, if you really need to chat with a friend or find out about that next raid, you want to keep it up and running while you play.  Well, there is now a better way for gamers to chat with each other and not mess up their games.  XFire.com has instant messaging software that is compatible with just about every MMO/MMORPG game on the market and will work with your current game so it doesn't cause any problem with the game interface, or your moves.  It can be set to pop up either under or over your game so you won't miss anything while waiting on an instant message to appear.  XFire.com is a great way to keep up with your gaming friends so that you are easily able to chat and not lose one second of your game time.

    Another great plus to XFire.com is that it actually gathers information about your characters in game and uploads your stats and game time to your profile online.  This is a great way to show others your gaming skills and show what a hard core gamer you really are, without having to bulk up your stats!  The software easily transfers all of your existing data, including your guilds, raiding information, classes, ranks, levels, and so forth.  You can also see how much game time you have lived through during each week, month, and year to date as well as see the gaming time that your friends, and enemies, have played.  When you create a profile on XFire.com, you will also be able to use the forums to chat with gamers from around the world so that you can recruit for guilds, raids, and other great stuff.

    I was told about XFire.com through a hard core gaming gal friend of mine and I could not believe that I had not downloaded it long before that.  I have been using the software for over a year now, and it works well with all of the bigger MMO games, such as World of Warcraft, Age of Conan, and Hellgate: London.  It also works flawlessly with free to play MMO and any other PC games that you are into, so you don't have to worry about losing any time, or goods, their either.  I tell my gamer friends about XFire, and even non-gamer friends have downloaded it when they know that I'm playing it up.

    Overall, I rate this software a 5 out of 5 and I recommend that any gamer download this software before you lose any more game time!
