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!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Keiichi Arawi's City Manga. It's delightful, with excellent comedic timing. If you enjoy Nichijou this is definitely up your alley. In the news, Fantastic Four #1 just dropped, we won't be at Otakon this coming weekend, we will (likely) be at Anime NYC in November, and the GeekNights Book Club is a thing that exists.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the anime TV series Cells at Work! (Hataraku Saibō) (はたらく細胞). We previously reviewed it before we saw it. We're back from the Harlem Valley Rail Ride, the Eisner Awards had a good year, NYCC and Anime Expo are teaming up for something we're definitely avoiding, and Worldcon's treatment of its guests has been a garbage fire.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds). We're having a lot of fun with it. In the news, Mario Tennis Aces has serious problems and also already required significant balance changes to avoid the modern equivalent of snaking, Jackbox Party Pack 5 is coming, the Overwatch League playoffs were on Disney XD with a surprisingly large audience, and the Trogdor game is beautiful but probably not worth playing.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Made in Abyss. It's a recent hot anime that's worth the hype, though be warned that it is pretty gruesome at times. In the news, Rym is playing his damn trumpet again, HEYYEYAAEYAAEYAEYAA has taken physical form, nazis are trying to march next to Otakon (and you should complain about it), and the United States is in a state of extreme peril that requires you to vote in 2018.
