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.
Ever wanted to meet the developers behind XCOM: Enemy Unknown? Well now you can. With a video.
Sniper Elite V2. It’s a game about sniping. Well, that and being elite, I guess. It’s actually pretty good – and it’s out now on Steam.
The CEO of SEGA Europe and America, Mike Hayes, has stepped down. While he’ll be remaining in the industry, his new gig is currently unknown.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will probably be set in a modern setting – or at the very least, a little more modern than the last game. It’s debatable if that’s a good thing or not, but I guess the gameplay doesn’t change a whole lot regardless of what the setting is in Call of Duty.
Square Enix and Cavia – the dev behind the JRPG Nier – announced a new title earlier today called Catacombs. The game appears to be a team-based RPG/shooter hybrid. Certainly not what most were expecting, at the very least.
League of Legends will be getting a spectator mode in its next update. That seems like a good thing for those into e-sports!
Three ex-BioShock developers have splintered off to form their own studio – The Fullbright Company. Their goal? To “make a great game.” Well. You and everyone else, I suppose!
