Hey gang! As several of you pointed out to us today, it appears that Powered by GameSpy will be shutting down at the end of next month. While it’s a bit sad to see one of the grand-daddies of multiplayer PC gaming going the way of the dinosaur, it’s perhaps not terribly surprising, either. For those of you keeping score at home, this marks the second multiplayer gaming service on the PC to start winding down in the last few years: Games for Windows Live faces an uncertain future and has been yanked from several titles. Fortunately, Evolve’s party system kicks ass and takes names for many of the titles that are impacted in the looming shutdown. Remember that parties work with any game that includes LAN play, regardless of whether that game’s centralized matchmaking is still operational. If you love these games,

help us spread the word about Evolve

on Reddit, game forums, or wherever you hang out online. Finally, we’d like to remind those of you enjoy using Evolve for free that picking up

goes a long way toward keeping us chugging along smoothly!
