The Jurassic Park Franchise

Tonight on GeekNights, Jurassic Park. From the good movie, to the bad one, to the SNES game. Also some other Michael Crichton stuff. In the news, check out the NYPD vs FDNY brawl, and New York moves a bunch of low level crimes from criminal to civil court.

The GeekNights Patreon continues unabated!

Food Games Fracas

Tonight on GeekNights, with two and .25 plays respectively, we review Fast Food Franchise and Food Chain Magnate. Scott laments a cookie thief, Civilization VI is coming just as we start to get really into Civ V, and the 2016 Spiel Des Jahres nominees are now known.

The GeekNights Patreon is going strong with Rym and Emily reviews, bonus shows, and more!

BYOC 2016

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk in detail about the best reasonable PC one can buy in 2016. Based primarily on Rym's likely new rig, though cheaper cooling options might be employed in the end. Rym's back (mostly) from the flu, and we consider both Intel's potential backing away from the PC market and the data density changes over the years in Google Maps.

The GeekNights Patreon is going strong, and expect a bunch more videos in the nearing future!

Ransomware

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk a bit about ransomware. While you can be mostly safe from it just by having good backups, it's a problem that will only grow with time. In the news, Youtube introduces live streaming 360* video, and Alex St. John epitomizes everything wrong with the games and tech industries in a single loathsome bundle of human expression.

We're live at PAX East THIS WEEKEND! Commentary from the first remastered beta episode of GeekNights (a Patreon backer goal) is free for all! GeekNights Tshirts are on Amazon! Babymetal is performing in New York!

Boat Times

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about boat times. In the news, Kraft changed its recipe and didn't tell anyone. Lots of fun stuff going on in this episode. Classic GeekNights.

Miitomo

Tonight on GeekNights, we review and discuss Miitomo. We could arguably have talked about it on basically any GeekNights night, but we chose Tuesday because while it is a social network, it is also a candy box. And, it was made by Nintendo. In other news, Rym is frightened and confused by Fast Food Franchise, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! has been reluctant to reveal its mysteries, and the worst people on Earth attack an indie game, while the zeitgeist of humanity attacks a random farm.

The GeekNights Patreon hit its first goal! We'll be releasing them remastered and with commentary for the pre-GeekNights beta episodes! We'll also be performing live at PAX East!

Ace Attorney

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the awful, minimum-effort exercise in mediocrity that is the Phoenix Wright anime: Ace Attorney. It's not even worth watching one episode: it's just a 100% redo of the first game, with shoddy animation and annoying voice acting. In other news, anime clubs are (surprisingly) on the rise, and it's time to renew that Crunchyroll subscription.

The GeekNights Patreon will have a lot of bonus content in the next couple weeks, and we'll be performing Atari Game Design live at PAX East 2016!
