GameConnect is a community dedicated to a passion for games, on Steam and Playstation. Next to that we have also been a game studio (creating all kinds of HL2 based mods and Nuclear Dawn) for quite some time. 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.
GameConnect is the gaming arm of TechConnect, a company based in the Netherlands active in ICT, Marketing, Home Automation, Events and websites since 2001.
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?
Greetings, Viper (Michiel)

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.

What we have done in the past
Stargate: The Last Stand
Stargate: The Last Stand is a total conversion mod for Half-Life2. What does this mean? Well, it means that the development team are stripping the Half-Life2 (a.k.a ‘Source’) engine down to its bare bones, and re-building a completely new game from the ground up. In the Stargate: The Last Stand multiplayer games, players will play on one of two teams, Goa’uld, or Tau’ri.
Each team will contain one base class (for example Airman for the Tau’ri) and 4 special classes for which players can nominate themselves for (for example Dr. Daniel Jackson for the Tau’ri). Each class will be armed with its own weapons and unique physical abilities, and will be challenged with our central gameplay ‘The Last Stand’.
SourceBans is a free global administration and banning system for Source engine based servers.
When running SourceBans web interface and the SourceMod plugin together, you will be able to instantly ban people from all of the servers you have added into the system. Once you either ban a player from the server, or though the web interface, the specified player will instantly be banned across all of your communities` servers.
You will no longer need to add the STEAM Id’s of users to all of your servers` config files, and keep the configs synced and updated after each ban.
Ultimately the original development team started doing other things in life and stopped the project.
Since that time Sourcebans has been re-created by the community and can now be found here.
Steambans.com was a new service based on an old concept. Global banlists were active for years on the old WONID program from valve. When the change came to STEAMID it felt natural for us to develop a service specially minded to this new system. But we also wanted more.
We wanted to focus on the cheater personally more then on the cheats he used. Our experience tells us that a cheater will eventually make mistakes and reveal his cheats, and we want admins ready to catch him when he does. This way we can base our catches on humans (server admins) and gain experience via them to develop better and more precise techniques for spotting cheats.
Steambans was closed down in 2013.
