Latest Video Games News

Some parts of the print media have suffered more than others from the advent of the Web, but games magazines would come near the top of any death list. Monthly titles have seen their news coverage poleaxed by hundreds of blogs and sites that are able to run with the tiniest scraps of news and screenshots as soon as they emerge.

But the best gaming blogs also offer sparky analysis and pointed reviews, while some simply serve up epic belly laughs. Our sister site GameSpot UK has all of those and more on its blog London Calling, but we couldn't really include them, could we? Here are the ten best we've found (that don't sit right next to us).

By sheer weight of posts alone, this is a required RSS feed or bookmark for anyone interested in Nintendo gaming, whether Wii or DS. It sucks up stories from around the Internet and aggregates them quickly, offering a central point for the Nintendo news of the day.

In truth, Shacknews is one of those sites that blurs the line between a blog and a news site, so comprehensive is its mixture of news and features. With so many blogs chasing the same news, it's a worthy read because it still manages to pick up exclusives and new angles.

Another multi-format blog that digs behind the headlines, often offering posts that are as interesting to people in the games industry as to gamers. A difficult line to walk, but it manages it with aplomb. A clean design and clear writing makes it a refreshing read.

Don't come here looking for 20 news posts a day, but do come if your interests encompass Sega, Suzanne Shaw and Sony-slating at every opportunity. Not that UKR is a po-faced fanboy blog: it's so consistently funny you'll never dare drink tea in front of your monitor again.

iPhone gaming, as you'll know if you've seen Apple's recent jabs at Nintento and Sony, is huge. Touch Arcade is one of the blogs that have sprung up to cover this burgeoning market, offering news, hands-on previews and a bustling forum full of developers talking about their latest games.

As befitting the blog of a broadsheet newspaper, the Guardian's Games Blog eschews the scramble for press releases and screenshots in favour of a more measured approach, offering analysis, interviews and opinion. Always readable, and often thought-provoking.

There are hundreds of blogs that simply rehash games news - none of which feature on this list. Destructoid stands out as one of the games blogs with a definable character of its own: sharp, sparky and never knowingly dull.

One of the two heavyweights of the games blogging world (the other is below), Joystiq offers dozens of posts a day, getting news stories up at the drop of a hat, and chasing down exclusive info whenever possible. An essential source for anyone interested in gaming.

In truth, it's hard to choose between Kotaku and Joystiq - a good deal of the stories they post are on the same subjects, such is the fierce competition between the two. Kotaku edges it for its humour, however, with its writers expressing their characters without becoming self-indulgent.
