Okay, that is lame.

My main goal is to bring in more information about GAMES, and less of the BS. Right now, Joystiq & Kotaku seem to hump the leg of certain titles from initial rumors to every post-release sales figure, patch, toy line, t-shirt and ego-stroking pissing match, while completely ignoring a lot of other games.

I use Gamasutra for their job boards, but I'm not sure how their game coverage is.

Well, we can get rid of the Joystiq/Kotaku duplication issue. Received a notice from Gawker today:

If this is a typical number of daily postings for GoNintendo, I'm quitting.

Viper, how often do you have yours set to check for updates? I have mine set to 10 minutes, but I swear it goes when it feels like it, maybe once per day. So I'll get no new RSS posts for nearly a whole day and then a huge chunk all at once.

The problem is, we'd have no way to control which are worthwhile and which are just dopey or trivial.

They seem to link a LOT of stories from other sites (of questionable merit, since you have to go through them to get there), and they also have quite a bit of game announcement, preview and release info (which is good), but there are SO MANY petty little "A couple more screenshots" and "One detail we forgot to mention" notes, that it all becomes mindnumbing.

I also kill a lot of sales number stories.

Okay, eff this noise. GoNintendo needs to GoAway. A lot of the time they don't even included a line to tell you what the story is; just a link, and it's mostly garbage anyway.

Even the truncated IGN or Kotaku feeds would be better. Maybe 1up would be worth a try.

Viper,

Please drop all GoNintendo feeds. It's like spam. I'm drowning in this crap.

Kev seconds the motion, but his comment got buried in GoNintendo threads.

Can we please drop the ShackNews feed?

1) Everything they send is covered by other feeds.

2) They send the same stories up to 6 times each in some cases.

3) Their HTML is shit and the links don't even work half the time.
