FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Now 10% More Absorbent than IGN
Posted on Wednesday, March 12 2008 @ 02:51:01 Eastern

It's a sad, sad state of affairs when Kotaku's RSS feed has more than double the number of items per day than the CBC news feed. Every day, Google Reader churns out hundreds of items for me to read, and nearly all of the gaming feeds suck. Kotaku and Joystiq lead this parade of ****, coming up with dozens of nearly unreadable, teeveenewz-style articles about the minutiae of gaming culture. Some guy (undoubtedly with a vast collection of ass hats) makes a Master Chief figurine out of paperclips at his desk? Post. Wild unconfirmed speculation about a game that might be shown next month and maybe will be released this decade? Post. Someone from any major studio so much as takes a leak in a public washroom (and the urinal cake was recovered)? Post.

Today, helpfully, Kotaku decided to tell me that Interplay has put up a graphic on their webpage to inform us that a webpage will be there soon, and then proceeded to list the games represented in this graphic. Not only that, but all Gawker media sites now proudly state in their header how many posts have been made in the past 24 hours. Were there really 50 newsworthy posts in the last day from Gizmodo? Weblogs, Inc. is rarely any better, with the same vast resources of terribly-written humourless false-journalistic crap.

As someone who consumes more information in a short time period than your mother does in a significantly longer amount of time, I couldn't stand to put up with reading this nonsense just to keep well-versed in video games. If gamers want to be taken more seriously and be better poised to react when the real teeveenewz guys come after us, we've got to stop letting sites like Kotaku and Joystiq (and anyone associated with IGN and G4) speak for us.

So, err...viva la revolucion!
