It’s been ages since a specialized games torrent tracker was featured here on FILEnetworks Blog. But have no fear - GamesAccess (GA) is here to fill the void. GA is a games-only private tracker that has been online since 2008. We did in fact post an article about it last March, back when the site was open for signup. However lots of things have changed over at GA during the past couple of months; first major revision of the site (GA v2.0) was launched and the site went into invite-only mode for an extended period of time. Good news is that GamesAccess has re-opened public signups - you will not need an invitation code if you register during this time.
GA is a Polish private tracker. If you are an English speaking user, don’t let that bother you – almost all games indexed on GamesAccess are NA/EU releases. Anyways for a tracker that has been online since 2008, GA has received very little attention from the BitTorrent community (them being invite only might be one of the reasons). However as we see it, GA is a tracker that has a lot of potential. Even without much publicity it has managed to form an active user base comprising of around 2400 members.
As mentioned earlier, GA is a tracker best suited for game addicts. You can find games for multiple gaming platforms such as the PC, XBOX360, PS1/PS2, Mobile devices, etc. Both scene releases and P2P uploads are indexed. One of GA’s key strengths is its unique content. For example, it tracks over 30 games packs in the ‘Packs’ category – almost all of these exclusive to this tracker. Additionally, it is one of the very few private torrent trackers to track PC game rips. Even giants in this niche such as BlackCats games and BitGamer do not track that many PC game rips that mostly originate from P2P sources.
That being said, GA definitely has room for improvement. For example, it could do with a boost to the rate new torrents are being added. Right now only around 5 torrents are being added daily (site currently has 500 active torrents total) – being a niche tracker, this might be a reasonable number but it would be good to see more retro games, etc being uploaded on a frequent basis.
GamesAccess is currently open for signup and you no longer require an invite code during signup. We are unable to confirm till when the site would remain open. It’ll probably remain open till current max user limit (3000) is reached. After that, it might go invite only again for months so get in while you can.
