I think a lot of people use teamspeak, but that needs someone to host a server AIUI

There is a "Call" feature in Xfire in your tools that will allow you to
mic with someone....

Vent is pretty pap to be honest, better off with teamspeak, which is what i use with my CS:S clan, and have used with my Q4 clan. I have never used the voice feature on Xfire, so couldnt really comment on that. As far as I know with vent and ts, you need a host somewhere... (well with TS you deffinatly do, and vent im pretty damn sure you do). Alternatively you could always dig up Roger Wilco (lol )

Teamspeak or Vent are fine.

Xfire also has a chatroom feature, in which multiple people can talk to each other. The quality on Xfire is also better than Ventrilo, in my opinion.

Open up a conversation with someone, invite a few people, then click 'Host Voice chat.' It also allows you to set the quality of the voicing with the slide of a bar, as opposed to messing with bitrates, etc, in Vent and TeamSpeak.

If it's just a few of you, I suggest Xfire. If you need multiple rooms, I suggest TeamSpeak or Vent. I prefer TeamSpeak over Vent, however.

Teamspeak is the best for clans. Many clans will allow you to use their TS Server free of charge. You can then use your own room if available for you and your friends.
A TS server, however, is only around £10 a month. So if your serious, it's worth it.

Thanx for the input guys, Its only for me and a friend atm so used msn, it worked queit well.

He tried roger wilco but that was poor.

Its a real novelty to be able to talk while playing far cry, but most of the time we just trade insults and taunts
