Welcome to the
first second third Piki Geek TiG! What’s that, you ask? The TiG, or Today in Gaming, is a rundown of all the news that we didn’t cover.
Now, wait a second – why aren’t we directly covering these stories?
The answer is simple: we’re embracing our name! Piki Geek was never supposed to be a one-stop shop for gaming news. Rather, it was supposed to be a hub for outstanding feature, preview, and review content with the day’s most important news stories thrown in.
At the same time, however, we understand that it sucks to have to dig through a billion-thousand sites to find good gaming news – so we’re doing that for you. At the end of every day on Piki Geek, we’ll be throwing out a TiG to link to our other gaming friends so you could catch everything we didn’t think was necessarily newsworthy.
Sounds good? Awesome. Now hit the break and be amazed.
DOTA 2 got a pretty big update. They also added a Lycan, which may or may not be a big deal, depending on how much you like creatures that have the capability to snap your neck.
The Hunger Games: Girl on Fire was released on iOS earlier today. It’s a touch-screen adaptation of the film/book that has everyone
talking screaming in my ear. Is it good? I have no idea, but it’s free, so how about that?
If you really like King of Fighters you can now play it on a handful of Android phones. How much, you ask? $4.99.
Engadget took a in-depth look at the GeForce 600 series of cards which launched yesterday. News flash: It will blow up your face. I guess this is where I should complain about consoles holding us back, or something?
MONEY. GAMESTOP. MONEY. SALES.
The “crews” system from Max Payne 3’s multiplayer mode will also chill in Grand Theft Auto 5. As someone who has had to use Rockstar’s Social Club on the PC in the past, I am not excited.
