Tonight on GeekNights, we review the utterly unique TumbleSeed, a cross between a roguelike and Taito's Ice Cold Beer. In the news, the Race for the Galaxy app is ace, Blizzard really booched a major Hearthstone tournament, a cheating scandal in the world of speedrunning, Niantic shadowbanning Pokemon GO "cheaters," and two listener questions around rules to games.
Tonight on GeekNights, we confirm that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is legit. In other news, TumbleSeed is really hard, Uniqlo's Nintendo shirts are off the hook, and esports journalism has a long way to go...
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.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It's all right, but it does lead us to discuss what the best Zelda games ever made truly were. (Apparently, it's Zelda 3, Zelda 1, Ocarina of Time, and Zelda 2, plus or minus Four Swords on the GC). In the news, the World Cup had a ridiculous late-tournament blowout, and the sad tale of the failed Mechwarrior Online tells us why pay-to-win is the worst idea in the world. Connecticon 2014 is THIS WEEKEND! We'll be there performing four shows!
