Queen Emeraldas

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Leiji Matsumoto Queen Emeraldas manga. It's mostly about strangers giving guns to children. In the news, there's an Astroboy digital CCG that you should avoid, Steven Universe fans that you should avoid, and we learn why Mario was there at the Olympics instead of Pokemon. Also honey and meat, and the Prince Valiant storytelling game (which you should NOT avoid)!

This is our last show before PAX, and we hope to see you there! Support GeekNights on Patreon to get things like Rym and Emily reviewing Kubo and the Two Strings!

Kaby Lake and Adblock Wars

Tonight on GeekNights, interrupted as we were by meat courtesy of the Queens Dinner Club: Mothership Meat Company, we talk about the new Intel Kaby Lake architecture and what it means for HTPCs. Android 7 Nougat is coming, but not to the Nexus 5. The Adblock Wars intensify, though we will win in the end. Also pedal hydrofoils, new bikes, and new skis.

Umbrellas

Tonight on GeekNights we talk about umbrellas and comedy "genre" movies. Scott is an old man who cares a lot about garlic. July was the hottest July ever. Tmobile and Sprint have "unlimited" data plans that kind of suck. Naked Trump Statues allow the tightest shade ever thrown by a city official.

Bojack Horseman

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily review Bojack Horseman. The critics are right, and this show is fantastic, if dark. It's definitely worth watching. The first season takes some episodes to hit its stride, season two is a perfect arc, and season three is a series of largely high-concept episodes.

Specialized Peripherals

Book Club: Oryx and Crake

Tonight on the GeekNights Book Club, we review and discuss (with spoilers, obviously), Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake. We enjoyed it thoroughly, and had a lot to say. Gene-fueled science fiction dystopia, too-real commercialization of life itself, and a short read to boot, we had no choice but to make this - the first of the MaddAddam Trilogy) our GeekNights Book Club choice.
