Ingress

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Niantic's Ingress, an ARG (Augmented Reality Game) that, while effectively nothing more than a team-versus Candy Box, is actually pretty fun. We're both playing it, and Scott is rapidly leveling up. The Enlightened are the correct (green) group to join, for together we will usher in a new evolution of mankind. In the news, Tetris Ultimate is coming, complete with a completely meaningless trailer, and Hearthstone updates with Curse of Naxxramas Arachnid Quarter.

Sailor Moon Crystal - First Look

Tonight on GeekNights, we present our first look at Sailor Moon Crystal. We worry it is uninspired and lacks the care and energy of the original anime, but will continue watching it for the time being. Meanwhile, we're also watching the original anime (as we've discussed previously). In the news, Thor is a lady, Archie is dead, Yowamushi Pedal is getting a movie, Midousuji is Voldo, and ConnectiCon 2014 was amazing! We're also looking generally for good AMVs.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It's all right, but it does lead us to discuss what the best Zelda games ever made truly were. (Apparently, it's Zelda 3, Zelda 1, Ocarina of Time, and Zelda 2, plus or minus Four Swords on the GC). In the news, the World Cup had a ridiculous late-tournament blowout, and the sad tale of the failed Mechwarrior Online tells us why pay-to-win is the worst idea in the world. Connecticon 2014 is THIS WEEKEND! We'll be there performing four shows!

Bravest Warriors

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about the delightful show Bravest Warriors. In many ways, its the future of how media can be made in the modern world of digital distribution and the Internet. In the news, Rym's feeling that need to rewatch Escaflowne, Letter to Momo is playing in New York, as is The New York Festival ofContemporary Japanese Cinema, and someone stole Jun Fukushima's bike.

Performance Profiling

Tonight on GeekNights, we cover the high level of performance profiling. It's a complex problem that requires an understanding of programming and profilers, but also hardware and statistics. In the news, Orkut is finally dying the true death, right alongside freshmeat.net. ConnectiCon is happening NEXT WEEKEND!

Sportsmanship

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the sportsmanship. We also discuss the all-important concept of athwartship, croutons (or, as Rym refers to them, "advanced crackers"), nevermind the Steam Summer Sale 2014, that Ghost Detective not-a-game game, FTL Advanced, the fan attempt at a Sonic 2 remake (and the expected lawsuit/takedown), the difference between the new Ducktales game and Bionic Commando: Rearmed.

A Showdown

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about Gundam models and Eric Cantor's 2014 Republican primary defeat. These are two things about which Rym and Scott give zero shits. Along the way, we have the anniversary of the OJ Simpson extravaganza, bootleg Gundam models, ConnectiCon's amazing panel schedule, The Rent is Too Damn Low, urban legends, fakelore, slenderman, pogs, OJ Simpson pogs, and Tesla Motors opening up their patents.
