Stiq Figures, March 10 - 16: StreetPassing is great edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. I'm not used to finding people to StreetPass with. I never managed to do it during my last two years on a campus of 10,000 students, and it's the same story in my current home in the suburban outskirts....

Stiq Figures, March 3 - 9: Favorite special consoles edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. When you want a console near its launch, it's less about what color it is and more about getting your hands on one. I've only waited in a launch line once - my friends and I scoped out the store we...

Stiq Figures, February 24 - March 2: Best licensed games edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. This week's release of South Park: The Stick of Truth reminded us of how satisfying it is when a licensed game doesn't end up resembling a pile of burning trash. The idea of turning our favorite shows or...

Stiq Figures, February 17 - 23: Favorite gaming jams edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Responsive controls and impressive graphics can really help a game, but there's something that only a strong soundtrack can add to the experience.

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...

Stiq Figures: Favorite platformers edition

Out of every game genre out there, I've clocked most of my hours in the land of platformers. Collecting wumpa fruit in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, fooling around in Sonic the Hedgehog 2's Casino Night Zone, learning to fear the sun in Super Mario Bros. 3 before I knew what melanoma was...

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, January 13 - 19: Weird sequels edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. I can't imagine making sequels is an easy thing to do. Developers are usually expected to surpass the preceding game with a harder better, faster stronger experience that throws in new elements without...

Stiq Figures, January 6 - 12: Nintendo wishlist edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. I think we've all seen the news by now - despite the 3DS being the best selling gaming device of 2013 and some genuinely great new games, Nintendo didn't have such a great year financially. Its $240...
