    Question online gaming places

    Here are the gaming places I know of:

    MSN Gaming Zone - good and free
    Mplayer - used to be free, but slow...now it cost money...
    Heat.net - was good, now they are gone
    Battle.net - Blizzard games only

    So out of those 4, only Zone is left, if playing a non-Blizzard game...because I dont wanna pay money....notice the monopolization of MS.

    Anyways, does anybody know of any other gaming places? I want to find a place to play MechCommander (not MechCommander Gold or MechCommander 2) because Zone doesnt let you play it on their site anymore....

    Are there any other gaming places around?

    Try Gamespy.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?

    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Gamespy costs $20 to register...

    I am guessing the trial version expires after a month or so.

    Kali used to be good a few years ago, especially for the Mechwarrior games. Has free temp reg now but may not be working.
