Hey there CoffeeCoronet! No, you don't have to be someones friend in order to play with them online, however their are some parental controls that you can't talk to people and some other things unless you are their friend. :) No, there is not a way to
see who all is playing a specific game unless they are on your friends list. If they are on your friends list, you can see what your friends are playing at the time. :)
Thanks. Also how many updates am i gonna need before I can actually play a game. lol I'm trying to play left for dead 2 and it told me I needed cold stream. So I'm spending more money. My internet is subpar and everything takes at least 20mins minimum.
Is this the same with every game I wanna play?
