    Doubt they even exist at this point, but even something halfway decent would do the trick. RPS was alright for that kind of thing a couple of years ago, before they went full retard. So yeah, if you know any, please share.

    Don't exist. The vast majority are infested with leftard faggotry. Game journalists are the bottom of the barrel in journalism, which is an occupation that's already completely untrustworthy.

    Maybe Gamasutra?

    TB died and good gaming journalism died with him. Then a few independent Youtube channels and Codex, that's all we have left now.

    Infinitron only posts news he cares about. Before his excuse was “well im the only one of the mods posting news. Any other mod could post stuff too...hurr durr”

    Not sure what his excuse is now. He’s site admin/editor now.


    Honestly, you know what time it is, I’d say codex and rpgwatch get you like 90% of most gaming news.

    The Watch sucks as a discussion forum, but their news posting is quite robust.

    https://www.bluesnews.com/ is a good one, but it's all video games, pc AND consoles. Also it's an aggregator, but for news, that's the best kind of site.

    The author seems like a nice, polite guy, so that might trigger some of you who are more unstable, but otherwise, its a good site.

    I know pcgamesN does proper journalistic job, i.e. reaches out to all participants of a conflict, etc. When I was smeared in the news, they were the only one who reached out to me and got both sides of the story. Others are just such trash I don't even.

    But I don't read pcgamesN, so I don't know how SJW-oriented they are. You could check it out yourself if you want.

    Edit: oh yeah, RPShit reached out to me, only to then smear me anyway, disregarding all proofs that I provided.

    Edit2: personally I read gamasutra. They have web 1.0 design, which is a pain to look at. But they post most of the news on time.

    100% agree. Gamasutra's webpage design is archaic and painful to browse through. They really should do something about it.

    What were you expecting? The clue was in the name. At least they're honest about their quality control.

    Fine. You've convinced me. I'll go make my own news site with news and hookers! Infact, forget the news!

    I'll post it here when I make it so we all can bitch about it together.

    Alright, here it is: https://principlesofgaming.blogspot.com/

    Currently a blog cause I am still thinking on what to name the site. Nothing much is there besides the introduction, and a news roundup currently. Let's see how far it will last.

    Edit: Fck it, I have a life.

    Why do you seek another gaming website, for you are already in the rpgcodex?

    There are none, as far as I know. The industry of game reviewing wasn't amazing even a decade ago, and it completely imploded over the last 10 years. In large part it's because you can't get any visitors simply by publishing good content anymore. Google fucked that up. These days you need to keep "social media presence", i.e. constantly spam clickbait garbage hoping someone will retweet/share/repost it. This takes way too much energy and there are currently no other ways of getting new traffic. Well, unless you take a chunk of users from an already establishes website.

    These days I just check GOG every weekend. They mostly filter out complete shovelware, their descriptions are decent, and user reviews are pretty good. I can open their feed, see what's new, and focus on the titles I find interesting.

    I used to read DSOgaming, but the problem is that having a constant stream of "hardcore" (i.e. not Battle Royale trash etc.) news for the PC gaming scene means you really have to push yourself to find material, so half the time the articles were just about 4k texture mods and such. These days I'll usually pick up anything noteworthy just by briefly browsing the codex, /v/ and youtube.
