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...

Stiq Figures, November 25 - December 1: Brings me back edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Sometimes a game does something so well that you can't really walk away. You might have finished its content or cleared out its achievements list, but you can still pour hours into it without really...

Stiq Figures, November 18 - 24: I was wrong edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. I remember reading about the Rumble Pak in Nintendo Power and eventually seeing it in the ad campaign for Starfox 64. A device that made my controller shake around when I was hit? Sounds ... dumb, I...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Atlus had a bit of a spree this morning with Persona announcements - there's the chibified spinoff coming for the 3DS, the extension of Persona 4 Arena for the PS3, the particularly surprising,...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. The PS4 launched into US homes this week, and the Xbox One is about to do the same on November 22.

Stiq Figures, October 28 - November 3: PlayStation 4 edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. I know we keep hyping up the launch of new consoles and that a certain time-traveling Joystiq editor teased us all with details from the future, but you know what? I'm excited! I've had some great times...

Stiq Figures, October 21 - 27: My backlog haunts me edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Look at this picture. Look at it! That's just a fraction of what I wish I had the time to play, and I haven't even filled in the PS3-shaped chasm of games that I've missed out on during this generation....

Stiq Figures, October 14 - 20: Kuribo's shoe edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Powerups can be great and all, but sometimes one of them just runs away with your heart. Super Mario Bros. 3's Super Leaf was way more useful and generally more common, but sometimes I played through...

Stiq Figures, October 7 - 13: Favorite pre-order bonuses edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. When pre-order bonuses are done well, they're a great argument to throw down some cash for a game months before its actual release. They help retailers get a general idea of the game quantities they...
