Video Games News is a one stop shop for all your video game news and gossip. Instead of ploughing your way through a load of RSS feeds, Video Games News gives you a tag cloud of whatever is happening. That means a big list of things where the more popular a thing is, the more prominent it is. At a glance you can see who is in the news and what is happening. Want to see the latest developments on your favourite game or console? Just click that particular tag.
"Screenshots" and "Video" show you all the stories with screen shots or videos. Most of these can be accessed from inside the app itself.
Clicking on the name of a console brings up all the mentions
Make your favourite game more visible by clicking the "Like" button. This hilights them so they stand out more prominently.
Lots of similar stories? Click a button to mark them all as read. A tag will appear grey if there are no new stories to read.
To update it at any time, simply give it a shake. The data on the server is only updated every half hour.
We gather the headlines from Edge, C&VG, Games Radar, Eurogamer and Gamespot. The list of tags is updated regularly.
We cover all the main platforms from Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, playstation 4, Vita, Wii, 3DS and Ouya. Games hi-lighted range from Call Of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Bioshock, Battlefront, Halo, Destiny, Mario, Minecraft and Pokemon. We also do all the popular "Indie Gaming" games.
Finally, it looks a bit like the Matrix and most importantly, it is FREE!!!!!!

Easy way to stay updated
Instead of looking through pages of sometimes irrelevant content on many "gaming" sites, this app lets you stay updated on what is currently being talked about most and let's you read multiple articles on what you want to read instead of having to look through pages of content you don't care about.
Games News puts all the most popular game articles and news feeds into a nice, simple and easy-to-use interface.
As a developer, this has become a really convenient app for keeping me up to date with what's going on in the game community.
Okay, but it should cover ALL GAMES and now it does
I've not experienced any crashing, but I have noticed a couple popular games with not mentioned. Most notably the Uncharted series. Naughty Dog has a link but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have a link to news about them & Uncharted the game. Like Infinity Ward & Call of Duty. I noticed THEY both had separate links....
Fix this "issue" & I'd give it 5 stars. Sorry, but I LOVE my Uncharted....
And they now have a tab for IT!!!!!
I'm a person of my word....5 stars!
