Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the reason why we have such trouble coming up with good Monday show ideas. We almost do a show about printers and printing along the way.
In the news, Rym runs fast enough to stave off the inexorable advance of age another year, Carnegie Hall doesn't have modern ticketing technology, chip-enabled credit cards in the US are about as effective as the goggles, often compromised from simple POS malware, a foldable phone appears, bikes are faster than cars, and we'll be live at PAX Unplugged!
If you want to join Rym and Scott Enforcing at PAX East, applications are open!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the current state of fan/creator relationships and scratch the surface of several ongoing concerns around it all. In the news, the US elections were mostly positive, Amazon is likely coming to Rym's neighborhood, and gameplay videos present a conundrum. Also, PAX East is live and Saturday is sold out!
Tonight on GeekNights, consider the rising star of the "Roll & Write" genre of tabletop games.
In the news, Rym is trying to play Overwatch comp solo, Blizzcon brought a bunch of news, salty babies are so furious a game was made that isn't directly targeted at them personally that they tanked Blizzard's stock (despite this being ridiculous), Riot Games is being sued for widespread systematic gender discrimination, and we'll be live at PAX Unplugged!
Tonight on the 13th anniversary of the launch of GeekNights, we review Netflix's The Dragon Prince. It's pretty good, and it has a hot king. In the news, Bee and Puppycat has some new biz, Sony is pulling Funimation shows off of Crunchyroll et al., (continuing a trend of increasing the pressure to pirate) there some new Undertale biz, TwitchCon was amateur hour, and you can listen to the first published episodes of GeekNights if you truly want some terror in your life!
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about video live streaming tech. This is something we talked about back in 2013 when the landscape was radically different. In the news, IBM bought Red Hat in a move that has confused many (but not all) computer professionals, Apple is bringing the new iPads, Twitter will get worse before it gets better, Gab was (thankfully) deplatformed, Bitcoin mining is horrible, and we will be live at PAX Unplugged!
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.
