Gamers Find a Replacement for the Defunct Google Reader

Updated Tue, Mar 19, 2013 by Shayalyn

The Google Reader is riding off into the sunset this summer. For gamers, at least, there's an alternative.

Last week Google announced that the Google Reader would be sunsetting, leaving users without a convenient tool for aggregating their favorite content feeds. In the wake of the Reader's impending demise, lovers of collective content have been forced to do one of two things: fight to save it, or find an alternative.

For gamers, at least, it seems Spark is the Google Reader alternative. Thousands have flocked to Spark as a source for timely and relevant gaming news.

"This is my go-to source for gaming news now," says Spark user Mike Perry. "I used to spend a lot of time browsing the web for information on the games I was following, and I ususally missed stuff. Spark does a better job than I ever did of keeping me up to date."

Unlike Google Reader, Spark offers a collection of hand-picked feeds specifically related to gaming and geek culture, with new feeds added regularly. Learn more at the Spark website. You can also vote for your favorite feeds to become part of Spark.
