Stiq Figures: Favorite platformers edition

Out of every game genre out there, I've clocked most of my hours in the land of platformers.

Stiq Figures, January 20 - 26: Childlike wonder edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. When I was a kid, I had the time and imagination to get drawn into great fantasy worlds in books, movies and video games. To me, Zelda games and Pokemon didn't have strategy guides to help me get out of...

Stiq Figures, December 9 - 15: Holiday highlights edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. The holidays were a pretty different time for me when I was a kid - there was no such thing as Amazon shopping sprees, and my "game collection" consisted of a few cartridges under a clunky CRT TV, right...

Stiq Figures, December 2 - 8: Games that broke us edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. There's a sense of accomplishment that floods from besting a game's challenge after weeks, months, maybe even years of watching your avatar crumple in its death. Sticking with a game to champion its...
