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.
