Tonight on GeekNights, we consider fruit (except apples). In the news, someone figured out how to dispose of old TVs for free, China's bot game is mad weak, Youtube's takedown policies have changed for short musical clips, and Scott has some chair woes. Also, Grapefruit.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch. In the news, Loot Crate is bankrupt, Dire Wolf Digital is bringing, among other things, Root to digital, System Shock 2's patch history is fascinating, and it's getting an "Enhanced Edition."
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the recently re-released Urusei Yatsura manga by Rumiko Takahashi. It's a fine read if you never got ahold of it the first time around. In the news, after some night market adventures and a search for yuzu paste, Aggretsuko is getting a third season, Megumi Hayashibara Joins the cast of Carole & Tuesday, Disney enters the fray (for now) at $12.99, Bananya gets a second season, and She-Ra is really coming into its own with its third season.
Don't miss Rym and Emily talking about Disney theatrical animation!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the cable to rule them all: USB-C. Note that this is not the same as USB 3 (or even 3.1). In the news, Cloudflare de-platforms the hateful and vile 8chan, followed quickly by Voxility de-platforming the equally vile Epik and Bitmitigate, Amazon continues to support white supremacist hate sites, Apple iPhone rumors are probably close to the truth, and there might be an almost usable Android smartwatch.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider cheese. In the news, we wonder what the deal was with Rym's Christmas Cheese, Ninja leaves Twitch for Mixer, a bad person was rightfully denied a panel at PAX, and we remind you that GeekNights has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for the Democratic primary.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Vincent Baker's The Wizard's Grimoire. It's an RPG for one player and two volunteers, and it's definitely worth playing. In the news, professional Fortnite is still amateur hour (though this probably doesn't even matter), Bethesda Bethesda'd Doom on the Switch, the Overwatch role queue is a significant maturation of professional esports, and the 8BitDo SN30 might be the one controller to rule them all.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Kunihiko Ikuhara's recent Sarazanmai. This is not a show for children. You need to know more about Kappa than you think you do. It should be watched with the same care you'd use watching Utena. In the news, our hearts go out to the victims of the tragedy at Kyoto Animation, CATS is back, and Rym may test the waters of Fire Force despite how we may have JUDGED it. Also, read Lone Wolf and Cub.
