    Smile Gamers with Skype

    I play allot of online games on PC, but most of my mates only play on there 360 or PS3 ('consoletards'). So I was wondering if anyone talks though Skype when playing games, its better than most in game chat and i hate vent.

    My skype is : SMB1to3 and I play : BFBC 2, MW2, MOH, Total War, Dawn of War 2. I have other games like L4D 2 and starcraft 2, but I dont play those to often.

    Add me or leave you skype name if you wat to chat while u get destroyed on any of the above games, on a serious note I have yet to win in DOW 2, sad but true.

    I find dedicated vent/TS3/mumble/GSC/whatever to skype as they're made for games and generally work better. For voip to a single person, skype is fine, but more than that it's better to use vent etc.

    Does skype even have push to talk? Programs that keep your microphone on all the time need to die.

    No, but it is for telephone calls rather than game coms for which push to talk would make you wonder if the other person had hung up.
