Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new hotness, a Dota2 mod called Auto Chess. It's buggy, weird, utterly novel, and definitely worth trying, continuing the long tradition of mods becoming transformational to PC gaming. In the news, Baba Is You finally arrives, Nvidia drops 3D Vision support, you can use Twitter to track Nvidia driver updates, and Rym has some Wargroove final thoughts.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Tatami Galaxy anime. Adapted from Tomihiko Morimi's novel, it's worth a watch. Especially if you liked The Night is Short, Walk On Girl or Eccentric Family. In the news, Brian K. Vaughan is writing a live action Gundam film, Galaxy Express 999 was remastered, and Funimation is releasing a Dragon Ball Z collector box if they get enough pre-orders.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the most notable spiritual successor to Advance Wars to date, Wargroove. Prior to this, Days of Ruin was the last game that scratched that itch. It's good. In the news, Bowser replaces Reggie ending an era for Nintendo, Thumper is a must-play VR game, and GOG is in some financial trouble.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Dororo anime that recently came out (as opposed to the one from 50 years ago). It's a telling of Tezuka's Dororo manga with a modern sensibility. In the news, Gundam NT is apparently Gundam "Nice Try," you may recall our review of Gundam F91 from 2006, Battle Angel Alita is inexplicably good, and Katsucon turned itself into a closed profile event, something MAGFest should also do.
Tonight on GeekNights we review the triumph of animation that is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Go see it immediately if you haven't already. In the news, the New York International Children's Film Festival is on, with some notable anime like Okko's Inn, and Penguin Highway, and Vic Mignogna is actually facing some consequences for his behavior.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new-to-us 2014 tabletop game from Johannes Sich: La Cosa Nostra. It's a mob-themed negotiating game that works. In the news, we're back from PAX South 2019 where we presented Nostalgia vs Game Design, we've reviewed the entire current season of anime, Dota Auto Chess is the precursor to the next hotness, the PC gaming store wars are continuing to heat up, VR Chat is bigger and better than you probably realize, and suing the NFL over a sports call continues to be amusing as it moves to federal court.
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.
