Default Where do you get your gaming news/reviews?

I used to look at IGN and Destructoid but I no longer frequent them after some of my favorite writers left the sites.

Do you all know of any good writers/sites?

I like to watch youtube for amateur reviewers.
For big review sites I usually hold Giant Bomb and Gamespot's opinions higher than others but I really wouldn't let them sway my opinions that much.

Usually you guys and Twitter for news.

Twitter and reddit for news, and I've generally phased out reviews in favor of simply watching unedited gameplay footage and seeing if I like it or not(or, better yet, demos, but those don't always exist sadly).
Always buy the game first to see if you will enjoy the demo.

It seems like the dedicated gaming sites have become less popular. It seems like more people are just going to social media these days for updates.
