PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds). We're having a lot of fun with it. In the news, Mario Tennis Aces has serious problems and also already required significant balance changes to avoid the modern equivalent of snaking, Jackbox Party Pack 5 is coming, the Overwatch League playoffs were on Disney XD with a surprisingly large audience, and the Trogdor game is beautiful but probably not worth playing.

See us live at PAX West, either in person or on Twitch! We reviewed all of the Summer Anime 2018 with another Judge Anime by its Cover!

Microservices

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider microservice architecture using Amazon product pages as an example. In the news, an EU copyright law that threatened the Internet as we know it was rejected (so far), and Valve leaked Steam game player counts in a novel way.

We can't be there this year, but if you're anywhere near Hartford Connecticut this coming weekend, you should definitely check out ConnectiCon! If you're near New York, you should hit up the Game Devs of Color Expo!

Bike and Car Shares

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider car shares, bike shares, scooter shares, and the like. In the news, we saw some great rooftop fireworks yesterday, there are few options to save the Thai soccer team, cave diving is incredibly dangerous, and your weird Internet crap might be the evolution of a neo-Dada movement.

We hope we'll see you at PAX West, the Game Devs of Color Expo, and the Harlem Valley Rail Ride!

Made in Abyss

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Made in Abyss. It's a recent hot anime that's worth the hype, though be warned that it is pretty gruesome at times. In the news, Rym is playing his damn trumpet again, HEYYEYAAEYAAEYAEYAA has taken physical form, nazis are trying to march next to Otakon (and you should complain about it), and the United States is in a state of extreme peril that requires you to vote in 2018.

Relational Databases and SQL

Tonight on GeekNights, having already expressed our disdain for NoSQL, we consider the humble (and foundational) relational database. SQL, ACID, and all the fun stuff in between. In the news, we're playing PUBG (badly), Adobe is using machine learning to spot photoshops, facial recognition software is not ready safe for use by law enforcement, and your 1440p monitor might be a 4k panel (and that's not a good thing).

If you enjoy GeekNights at all, and you're also sick of nazis in your other forums, you should really check out the GeekNights Forum! Anime, Comics, Gaming, Technology: everything. No nazis or gomergators allowed.

How we've changed in 20 years

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what's changed for us between 1998, 2008, and 2018. It's a meta show about our lives and what we've been up to. In the news, we're playing some PUBG, the World Cup is happening, Koko the gorilla has died, Cannabis is legal in Canada and may soon be in New York.
