I've just been reminded of one of my favourite websites. NTSC is awesome for importing tips/faqs and news. I might actually check it out later. :mrgreen:

The two I go to most are http://www.eurogamer.net and http://www.gametrailers.com

Both do exactly what I want, perfectly.

I like Eurogamer because they're not afraid to bite the biscuit and their writing style has that witty British edge to it that I remember from the likes of NGC. Also it's good to support them because they're pretty much local to me (Brighton). They report on some stuff I just don't see on the big US sites. Kotaku's good for that as well, no idea where they're based though.

Hi

My favourite sites with a UK flavour are CVG.co.uk and Spong.com.
My number 1 site is N4G.com a news aggregate site. Some bias blog rants, but also the top news there.
Kotaku.com (I think) is the no 1 visited game site. Blog format. A couple of the writers are overly inflated with their own pompousness.
PSU.com ,for PlayStation, s the biggest independent site ive seen. But not really any exclusives.
MCVuk.com for business analysis, and Gamasutura.com for occasionally deeper articles.


:D


EDIT: let me add gametrailers.com Bonusround weekly show is a superior talking heads programme
+ Zero Punctuation humorous but informative videos
+ my new favourite the HipHopGamer. At first I thought the guy was doing a spoof act, but he is genuine with a real love for video games. Not everybody will like what he does but i think it is great stuff.

Are you new to the internet or videogames?

Not really new. No.

Just interested in what people look at, as I have stuck with the same old, same old for ages (Kotaku/Eurogame/Game|Life Blog).

Thanks. Of late, JudOscar (my 2 boys names - Jude and Oscar) has replaced my 20 year old username Muhren (from Arnould). Felt like a change!

Me? Judo?

Uh-uh. I'm a lazy c-bomb.

Yes, plugging away at Drakes Fortune at the moment and Eden. Eden is sublime.
