Deep Sea Adventure: Pressing One's Luck

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider some press your luck mechanics with the wonderful Deep Sea Adventure. It's a shared space treasure-hunting drowning simulator. In other news, Rym keeps playing Overwatch daily, Scott hates all that is good in the world, and the gold rush of pro sports buying esports teams begins.

Tech Books

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about tech books. As in, the ones with animals on the cover. As a reference or as a teaching aid, they're not entirely obsolete. In other news, Netflix releases its Meridian test/reference footage under the Creative Commons, the Apple II gets an update, and some good camera stuff was announced at Photokina 2016! We also streamed the production of this episode live for some reason.

Pizza

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about pizza in all its forms. You guys love the food episodes, so here you go. 100 years Rym and Scott and pizza. But before that, Luke Crane's Inheritance is on Kickstarter (and funded before we finished the show) and South Park is back!

Captain Sonar

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Captain Sonar. We're back from PAX West, Rym's back from Utah, and we're ready to return to our regular schedule! The Omegathon Finale was a sequel to the last one, Apple Day both giveth Mario, and taketh away headphone jacks. Downtown Seattle does not have delivery pizza. Pokemon GO enables the lollipop farm even as the player base walks away.

Queen Emeraldas

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Leiji Matsumoto Queen Emeraldas manga. It's mostly about strangers giving guns to children. In the news, there's an Astroboy digital CCG that you should avoid, Steven Universe fans that you should avoid, and we learn why Mario was there at the Olympics instead of Pokemon. Also honey and meat, and the Prince Valiant storytelling game (which you should NOT avoid)!

This is our last show before PAX, and we hope to see you there! Support GeekNights on Patreon to get things like Rym and Emily reviewing Kubo and the Two Strings!

Kaby Lake and Adblock Wars

Tonight on GeekNights, interrupted as we were by meat courtesy of the Queens Dinner Club: Mothership Meat Company, we talk about the new Intel Kaby Lake architecture and what it means for HTPCs. Android 7 Nougat is coming, but not to the Nexus 5. The Adblock Wars intensify, though we will win in the end. Also pedal hydrofoils, new bikes, and new skis.

Umbrellas

Tonight on GeekNights we talk about umbrellas and comedy "genre" movies. Scott is an old man who cares a lot about garlic. July was the hottest July ever. Tmobile and Sprint have "unlimited" data plans that kind of suck. Naked Trump Statues allow the tightest shade ever thrown by a city official.
