What are your gaming news sources?

I used to have a magazine subscription to PC Gamer back in the day but these days I look on the web for stuff. So besides browsing through the vast information available here, which i have found very informative to say the least, and I know there's probably a ton of other sites that I can look at so I wondered what you all use to keep up to speed with life in the PC and Gaming world. Anything else you would recommend?

I currently use Euro Gamer and Game Geeks News besides Gamespot

IGN and Kotaku for the raw update rates.

PC Gamer and Rock, Paper, Shotgun for more focused stuff.

Also frequent Jim Sterling's, SidAlpha's and YongYea's channels on Youtube.

Gamespot for nostalgia. I've been coming here since the days this was Gamecenter.com.

There is this one site where I have been rather active in the forums over the years. I forgot its name.

@Byshop: Something along those lines yes. It's on the tip of my tongue.

Growing up PCgamer/PCzone. Now it's usually Eurogamer.

Sometimes checkout Gamespot's front-page, but for news I think it's not very good now, alot of people are unhappy with what it became.

Gamespot is my favourite, mostly for the forums and reviews. If I want to check particular gaming news I'll just use Google news search.

IGN = Instant Gaming News :P

That's the one I use the most.

I don't look at gaming news at all. It's not important enough. YouTube in particular is a huge waste of time that I could spend watching movies and TV shows or actually playing games. People are on YouTube so much.

This is a good list to look at. Sometimes its so hard to find gaming news for our podcast. sometimes its throwaway points. not in depth enough to discuss

Crapgamer on YouTube is where I get most of my gaming news.
