    RIP in peace Xfire

    Xfire is shutting down this Friday. Head to export.xfire.com to be placed in a gigantic queue and download your stuff.

    Who the fuck puts #B1B1B1 text on a black background with such a thin font? Christ.
    I can't read a thing.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Flickr, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    Been a loyal user since 2007 but honestly, the writing was on the wall. Surprised it took this long, tbh

    Unsurprising. XFire basically died when they changed owners years ago IMO. I really wish they hadn't since Steam was still such a frustration to use, but now the masses (and most games) are on the platform anyway.

    It was my site, I skipped out once they started adding non features like animated adverts, though i heard they were short lived.

    They set the bar for what steam would later be, for that I should be thankful, additionally, the clock overlay stopped me being late to things a million times.

    You are #7462 in queue

    Ouch... Better than needing to spam F5 though.

    I can't believe my original "RIP in peace" title was "corrected".

    Well, that sucks, but Xfire has obviously been headed downhill for a long time now.

    I was ignoring the broadcast messages, only to discover that it's not just screenshots+video disappearing! The one thing I wanted to preserve is my list of recorded playtimes, and luckily there's a nice writeup on Reddit of how to find and save your profile page, edit it to view the whole list, and even insert some javascript to sort the columns.

    I did catch this today and laughed out loud:

    Evolve is the best replacement I've found, as it has game time tracking, voice, and VPN. Other stuff I don't use includes the in-game overlay with browser, screenshots, video recording, and Twitch broadcasting. The new slogan is also a huge improvement. The client is very solid overall.

    I've used Evolve too, I can confirm it works pretty well (especially when setting up a multiplayer Minecraft game).
