Tonight on GeekNights, we review Cole Wehrle's Root. It's an asymmetric political wargame-esque experience with the most adorable animal theme you can imagine. Play it. In the news, we are back from MAGFest, one of our panels from MAGFest is on youtube, and there is so much ridiculous news going on with Blizzard that it's hard to summarize.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It's the latest (and at least second greatest) Smash Brothers. We're not great at Smash games, but this one definitely got us back in. In the news, GO SEE SPIDERMAN HOLY CRAP, you can use your GC controller for the new Smash, and Counter-Strike's "battle royale" mode is deeply mediocre.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mamoru Hosoda's wonderful Mirai (未来のミライ). It's a film about how the imagination of children and the stories they absorb growing up shape them and those around them. It also has the best house in the history of anime. In the news, beware PIN 20, Evangelion is coming to Netflix, Gen Fukunaga is salty about it, and we'll be live at MAGFest and PAX South!
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 review Brad Brooks' Rise of Tribes, a well-designed if simple game. In the news, Bowsette is our new queen, Telltale Games lays basically everyone off, a Magic: The Gathering pro drops out of the world championship in protest, and soccer clubs are weirdly angry at esports.
In the news, Hanebado is bad, The Dragon Prince is good, Assassination Classroom is all right, Adventure Time's ending was perfect, Bojack Horseman continues to be excellent, Care Bears looks like it will be ultra cute, DuckTales (2017) is fantastic, and SPACE JAM IS GETTING A SEQUEL WITH LEBRON!
