Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Okay, so I'm a pinball enthusiast, not a wizard. I've always loved trying out new pinball tables whenever I come across them, but before I outgrew allowances, my quarters usually landed in The Simpsons,...

Stiq Figures, February 10 - 16: Co-op gone wrong edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Cooperative gaming is conceptually brilliant and even better in execution. When it works, that is. Finding teammates you mesh with can feel a bit like flipping a coin - the pal you get along with...

Stiq Figures, February 3 - 9: Gaming rivals edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Writing Joystiq Weekly's opening today got me thinking - there are a lot of great incentives to keep exploring video games, but having rival characters personify a game's peak challenges is one of the...
