Quite a few people have asked me recently how I keep up with game industry news and information.
Besides following my favorite game publishers on Twitter and Facebook for their specific news, there are quite a few very informative websites with RSS feeds devoted to general game industry news. Personally, I use Feedly as my RSS reader on my laptop, tablet and phone.
