Serious Gaming

About

GameConnect is an online magazine dedicated to our passion for games, on all platforms and systems. For us, games are more than a passing fancy: they are the most popular form of entertainment of the decade, and many of the people involved in making GameConnect a reality are long time enthusiasts and game developers.

Covering news and reviews for all things Steam, Xbox, Playstation, Mac, PC, Mobile, Portable and Toaster (for when they finally manage to put games on toasters so that you have something to do while you wait for your bread), we look for great games and love to tell you about them.

We’ve been doing this for a while. The original GameConnect was founded in 2004, before evolving into the massive SteamFriends community, only to return to its all-inclusive roots in 2010, reborn as the new GameConnect.

We love playing games, and discussing them with our friends: why don’t you join us?

Server Hardware

Our servers run the latest stable built of Ubuntu Server. We use 19″ Dell rack servers, hosted on a multi gigabit connection at Unilogic Networks in Sittard, the Netherlands. All servers are Intel Xeon based with at least 8Gb of memory. Our database is managed by MySQL (latest stable) and we currently run PHP 5 on our Apache servers.

In 2010 we purchased a 64-bit Intel Pentium Xeon Quad core Dell Server to manage our website and database, this came with 16GB of system memory.

  • Server 1: Apache webserver and database (built in 2010)
  • Server 2: Downloads server + Sourcebans (built in 2009)
  • Server 3: Gameserver (CSGO,ND) (built in 2008)

The GameConnect Logo

The GameConnect logo was created in 2004 by TechConnect. While the GameConnect logo is currently not a legal trademark, we do allow external websites to use it in reference to GameConnect.net. The logo has seen many incremental “polish” updates, but remains the same branding. For banners and logos to use for your website visit our Logos and Banners page.
