Tonight on GeekNights, we don't do a tech news roundup, but we basically do a tech news roundup based on suggested topics from the listener. We will possibly alter the format of the Monday show, so let us know your thoughts. In the news, Intel Launches 8th Generation Core CPUs, back up your files, and IOS 11 has a cop mode.

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the extremely polished Namco Museum that came out for the Nintendo Switch. It's worth the purchase price just for Pacman Vs, literally one of the best games to ever be made for the Gamecube. Bonus points for having Dig Dug!
In the news, Civilization VI had a major update, a bad looking Civilization VI board game is coming, DotA bots superior, humans inferior (at solo mid), Nidhogg 2 appears to fail to capture the magic, and For Honor has some exploit issues in an amazing tournament.
We will be live at PAX West 2017 talking about rage quitters!

In the news, vile people continue to plague tech company staff, Hyperloop is (rightly) held up by regulation, LastPass is raising prices, Lenovo is moving to stock Android for all its phones, and radio navigation returns to prevent a Battlestar Galactica situation.
The GeekNights Forum is rockin', and you should probably join it!

In the news, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is finally getting republished with the original Stephen Gammell art, an exploration of the world of bespoke pornography, you can easily be sued over fonts, and kids today don't know over-the-air television exists.
If you're reading this, you should probably join the GeekNights Forum: it's actually pretty great! Even better, it's the new iteration, but the MASSIVE and TERRIFYING archive of the previous forum is archived for posterity with its hundreds of thousands of posts and tens of thousands of threads.
