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!

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. ...

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.

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.

I love puzzle games. If it involves stacking shapes or colors in a competitive fashion or just plain 'ol geometric obstacles, I'm guaranteed to play the associated cartridge (or in Pushmo's case, data) until my brain compiles thoughts solely out of chain combos. My love for them overpowers the ...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. The collectathon genre can get bogged down in frustrating, mindnumbing chores passed off as gameplay, but never for a second did I get tired of hunting down musical notes and Jinjos in Banjo-Kazooie. Betw...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. This week's 3DS sales spike might, just might have something to do with the release of Monster Hunter 4. You know what else might have caused a sales spike, if it had a chance to? The "Perfect Dark 2" Gam...

Final Fantasy is an interesting series. A cohesive effort mostly by name, the series has told tales of a dozen different universes while sharing threads of its origins in most of its games. Phoenix downs and summons like Shiva are almost to be expected, and to a lesser extent, so is an airship-savv...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Getting the perfect gaming environment set up is nice, but sometimes it's great to play a match of something outside of the house.

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. We've been hearing an awful lot about Call of Duty: Ghosts lately, and we can't help but be reminded of the ghosts of past games that never quite made it to store shelves. Starcraft: Ghost only existed a...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Delving into old gaming commercials reminded of us of the totally bizarre "Who Are You?" advertising campaign Nintendo used during their support of the Game Boy Advance and Gamecube. This commercial...

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. We won't lie, Pokemon makes regular appearances here on Stiq Figures.
