    New site that let's YOU submit video game news, reviews, articles, videos, etc. and users vote on submissions to see which of them get displayed on the main page (Basically Digg.com for video games).

    Really cool. Just launched 1.0 today.

    Check it out:

    If I submit something to Digg, I'm a "Digger".
    If I submit something to Wiigg, I'm a "______"?

    Perhaps some forced nomenclature is in order...

    Um... Who cares? O.o Especially since you have to register... The great thing about digg is that everything is central.

    Everything is "central" on this site too, it's just that only 1 article made it to the front page so far. Also, you can browse without joining, just like digg

    The internet is filtered through Digg. The whole internet. That's why nobody needs to and wants to visit another site that wants to filter same said internet with the same method. Choosing a specific topic gives it some legitimacy but not enough to survive/become useful.

    Very true.
    The hope for this site is that all of the video game news (modding, reviews, etc.) that doesn't make it to digg can be seen at http://www.wiigg.net

    If it fails it fails, it was worth a shot, we'll see.

    Agreed. Funny thing, what with using gbatemp to promote your own site and all.
