That would be awesome if you got gog going!
- The easier it is to import you game library, the more people are going to be willing to put their library into grouvee
- GOG is slowly eating away at the steam marketshare. Steam isn’t quite the 1 stop shop that it used to be.
Player.me adding grouve is actually how I found out about this place. I use player.me as a who am I/where am I, on the internet gaming wise, and ill be using grouvee as my personal and public gaming library organizer. I would love to see deep intergration between the 2 down the road, for instance auto filling player.me “liked games” based of my votes in grouve, so I don’t have to maintain the 2.
I definitely understand your reluctance to use web scraping. Heres to hoping those guys add api support. My main thought pattern was on just trying to get the game list out of the services to help make someones grouvee library more automatic. Thinking along the lines that:
- any kind of library organizer isn’t that useful unless its a complete record.
- having to manually add your origin, uplay games could be a turn off for a lot of people.
Maybe another possibility is, while its relying on website scraping, is to have an “unsupported desktop program” that people can download that extracts their game libraries from origin and uplay, into an xml. I’m running of memory here, but I think I remember something about grouvee and xml importing (or was that a feature request?). That way the flaky webscraping isn’t baked into the service, if it doesn’t work for a while theres always the “unsupported” reason, and if made opensource, the community could do work on keeping it up to date.
