I’ve been part of the GamrCred Invite-Only Beta (how elite, right?) for a week now and am fairly impressed. You’re able to pull in your Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam accounts for it scan for achievements. Then you can also hook-up your Youtube and Twitch accounts to help boost your score. Finally, you can tie them to social networks like Facebook and Twitter. All of it adds up soon enough. The more you talk about games on social media or via other systems, your ranking goes up.
Official Press Release:
[quote]We’re excited to announce GamrCred, the Ultimate Rank in Games, where your play, say and respect within your gaming communities combine to create the reputation rank to trump them all. Created by veterans of game-development powerhouse, BioWare, and social networking platform, Empire Avenue, GamrCred is aiming to become the standard across the web for measuring a gamer’s reputation. The site has launched in invite-only beta, and interested gamers are encouraged to sign up at http://gamrcred.com.
GamrCred will create the world’s greatest community of credible gamers. Our goal is to help you to not only find other gamers and learn, but also to find great games that others are playing or excited about. As avid gamers on console, PC, mobile and tablet, we also understand the issues of trying to identify great games that fit your interest and playing style. Hundreds of thousands of games on iTunes, the social web, console downloadables and more can make for an impossible list of great content to weed through, and every day a good game is likely being lost in the confusion. We believe we can help out by connecting you to gamers who you respect and whose opinions you can trust.
Today marks the start of an incredibly fun journey; a journey to build the most credible community of gamers in the world that can benefit from their reputation. We hope you join us and give us feedback so we can learn from you.[/quote]
Here’s my Badge of Honor for GamrCred, just a little over halfway to the top:
