It’s April, and the Piki Geek TiG is back! 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.
The Valve dev team behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has released a cool interactive graph of the shots fired on de_train – a demolition map from the game. It’s really neat – if Valve makes these for all of the maps in CS:GO, they’ll likely end up being a huge strategic tool for competitive teams.

While Street Fighter x Tekken has been a swirling storm of DLC controversy, Tekken x Street Fighter won’t, according to the series’ producer. Apparently he isn’t a big fan of DLC characters.
