Dont know about games m8 but I use :

www.gotnzb.com

www.nzbsrus.com

They search through loads of groups to find whatever game, film, album ect you want.

Saves you looking through all the groups, just open the file with your news reader or save it and open it.

_http://nzbmatrix.com/ and _http://www.nzb-dogz are a couple of free ones too.

All they're doing is indexing the same groups (or most of them) to make them easier to navigate. :)

the nzb has an info file a record of a list of files in it , you need to have a program that knows the nzb files ie . newsdemon, giganews, newsleecher, more info here m8 www.newsdemon.com

I use this

http://ngroups.net/

it's less than 8 quid a month and you can pay via paypal

They do have their own NZB generator

but i personally use newzbin as its better monitored

ive been using newsleecher for yrs by far the best newsreader. i dont have to bother with nzb sites as newsleecher has a supersearch fuction so no need to download headers. just type in what you want and away you go.

Been using the newsgroups for a while now and newsleecher is the best client i have ever used (with giganews as my server) but a m8 sent me a link to a new client which could be very useful to anyone just starting out.

It will check your download and only download the pars you need, it will then fix any damaged rars and unrar for you. It also as 7 search engines built into it( not as good as using newzbin but still pretty useful)


Best of all its free:

There are many different groups that these things can be gained from, easiest way is to look at some of the different sites that will let you get or view nzb files. rather than the old style site the newer newzbin site is better

h**p://v3.newzbin.com site costs about 50p a week but is very freq updated

www.united-forums.co.uk free and more of a community style board ie more than just nzb files
