The 40 Games You Must Play

Tonight on GeekNights, we try to hack together live a list of games that are, for one reason or another, must-play games. We've done this as a panel at PAX before, but for tabletop. This time it's everything.

In the news, Interplanetary is good to play, and so is The Fox in the Forest. PAX Unplugged isn't sold out and you should definitely go. We Judged the upcoming fall season of anime!

Mr. Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mr. Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues (中間管理録 トネガワ), also known as The Chronicles of Middle Manager Tonegawa. It's a spinoff from not Akagi, but Kaiji.

In the news, there is inexplicably a Dance Dance Revolution movie coming, NYCC is coming even though the 7 train isn't, and we will very soon post the newest Judge Anime by its Cover.

Single Signon

Tonight on GeekNights, we kick off October with Single Signon in light of the recent egregious Facebook security flaw. We also cover some of the news from Photokina 201, including the new Zenit M.

We'll see you soon at PAX Unplugged!

Rise of Tribes (2018)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Brad Brooks' Rise of Tribes, a well-designed if simple game. In the news, Bowsette is our new queen, Telltale Games lays basically everyone off, a Magic: The Gathering pro drops out of the world championship in protest, and soccer clubs are weirdly angry at esports.

We'll be live at PAX Unplugged 2018, and we hope to see you there! You can also follow the ongoing saga of Rym vs Patreon in Civilization V!

Night is Short, Walk on Girl

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Masaaki Yuasa's phenomenal Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. Just go see it. Don't even wait to listen to our review.

In the news, Hanebado is bad, The Dragon Prince is good, Assassination Classroom is all right, Adventure Time's ending was perfect, Bojack Horseman continues to be excellent, Care Bears looks like it will be ultra cute, DuckTales (2017) is fantastic, and SPACE JAM IS GETTING A SEQUEL WITH LEBRON!

Upload Filters and the EU

Tonight on GeekNights, back from our talk at PAX West 2018, we're talking about the coming EU copyright directive that may impact you. In the news, Apple Day was typical (though the new watch is pretty nice), the EU is killing Daylight Saving Time, "fake plays" are messing up the music charts (though this is nothing new in Korea), and Linus apologized.

Twitter APIs and Third Party Apps

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the demise of Twitter APIs necessary for third party apps to work as intended, signaling the potential (perhaps inevitable) demise of all third-party apps as Twitter desperately tries to monetize itself. In similarly bleak news, Netflix is experimenting with ads, and Twitch Prime drops ad-free viewing.

In some better news, Flamecon was, as always, amazing, Nvidia is bringing the RTX2000 series of video cards with real-time raytracing for games, and Intel is getting into the GPU business.
