Video Game News, Review and Cheats sites
Launched in 2012 by online media powerhouse Vox (The Verge, SB Nation) Polygon grew almost overnight to become the leading online video game news site. Much of Polycom's success can be credited to it's team of 20 veteran editors and reporters including former editors in chief of JoyStiq, Kotaku and The Escapist.
Polygon is packed with content for serious and casual gamers alike. There are game industry news, game and game platform reviews with many videos, opinion pieces and a lively forum. Reviews can be filtered by platform (Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, PC, iOS or Android)
The site uses a responsive web design to support all viewport sizes, mobile and desktop. At over 5 MB, home page weight is enormous even for a desktop site. Most of that weight comes from the page's 98 images.

For many years AllAboutSymbian.com's sister site, All About N-Gage has been the best place to find in-depth, honest reviews of the latest N-Gage games and news about the platform. A couple of months ago All About N-Gage was relaunched as OviGaming. About the time of the re-branding, the mobile version of All About N-Gage more or less stopped working. The front page still loaded but all links led to an error page. I'm sure the mobile site breakage was unintentional but it forced faithful N-Gage fans to use the desktop version of Ovi Gaming on their handsets to keep up with what was happening with the Nokia gaming platform. That probably wasn't a huge hardship as all the current N-Gage capable Nokia phones can handle the full site quite well, as can Opera Mini.
Eventually, OviGaming.com announced a new mobile friendly version of the site. It's at a new URL, ovigaming.mobi. The old allaboutngage.com/mobile/ address doesn't seem to redirect to the new version. The new site has a much more modern looking, touch friendly design. It includes all the content from the desktop edition except for the forums in a nice clean single column design with finger-friendly links for 5th edition users.
If you're into games on Nokia handsets, Ovi Gaming is a must read site for its in depth game reviews and honest appraisals of the strengths and weakness of the N-Gage platform.
