    Seems like a total waste of time and money to me.

    I used to use X-fire occasionally, but now I only use Steam friends/chat.

    Maybe I'm not part of the target market, although I honestly can't imagine it would be a very big target market.

    i'm looking for a USP... i see none. If EA did it, maybe, MAYBE it could work; but this will bomb. I give it 6 months; it'll lose half a million and they'll can it.

    Not. Gonna. Work.

    Facebook and the like already have the market for the actual social side of things covered, and gaming platforms like Steam already have more than enough features for us to easily arrange games between friends. Not to mention communities like this.

    I think it's a product looking for a scarcely existent niche IMO.

    It is a couple of years too late to the party. It could take off, but I have my doubts. Good luck to them though.

    When you're half way through a conversation, does the UI immediately revert to an alien language?

    Is that Live as in "Live and let die" or "A-Live"?

    I'd guess the latter, because the former would just sound weird.
