Tonight on Spooky GeekNights, we consider the classic Scooby-Doo in all his forms. And may we never speak of Scrappy-Doo ever again. In the news, Nausicaä was in theatres again, Nothing Special is something special, that Toblerone thing is because of an anime, Anime Strike's fall lineup includes Inuyashiki, and AnimeNYC is coming soon!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the surprisingly fun Black Friday, another Friedemann Friese board game. In the news, the discussion around what it truly means to "rip off" a game is only getting started with this PUBG ripoff and the smash bros community is in crisis.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Exit: The Game – The Secret Lab (2016), the 2017 Kennerspiel des Jahres winner, one of a series of "escape room" one-play tabletop games. It's basically identical to physical escape rooms. (Note: never trust Scott if he makes an escape room).
We are back from PAX West 2017, where we played enough games to drive at least half a dozen GeekNights episodes. Scott rode the NYC Century, Rym went mountain biking in Utah, gamers have a very poor understanding of what a "review" is, Metroid: Samus Returns is imminent with surprisingly glowing reviews, and Overwatch has DEATHMATCH.GeekNights Forum is amazing, and you should join it! We were back for our 42nd PAX Panel a couple weeks ago! The next GeekNights book club book is The Fifth Season!

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new Ducktales reboot. It's everything we could have hoped, and you can watch the first episode legally for free! Here's hoping it's the beginning of a new Disney Afternoon. In other news, Little Witch Academia is fantastic, Giant Robo is fantastic, Ghosts of Miami has launched, Flamecon is fantastic, and the Anime News Network hasn't gotten its domain back yet.

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!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the hit new visual novel Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. It's pretty great. You both are a dad, and you can date dads. Dads all the way down.
In the news, e-sports are getting serious treatment at MSG, Hearthstone is pushing the limits of card game mechanics, GameStop still exists, a gamer cruise fails, PUBG angers fans with early cosmetic loot crates, and Samus Returns brings a dark new pact with Amiibos.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Eccentric Family. It is easily one of the best anime in recent memory. In the news, Crunchyroll wants to bankroll its own anime, and we are back from ConnectiCon! Our GeekNights Book Club episode on Dune will be next Thursday, and our next con is PAX West!
