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.
Tonight on GeekNights, after a discussion on garages for some reason, we review Cockroach Poker and Kakerlakenpoker Royal, both designed by Jacques Zeimet. In the news, New York tops the Overwatch season, Sony blocks Fortnite cross-play, and Netrunner is dead.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Umamusume: Pretty Derby. It's... OK. It has some problems. It's basically on one end of a horse-girl anime spectrum. In the news, Boston's nerd convention security problems (the primary reason we stopped performing at Anime Boston despite it being one of the best anime cons in America) continue, AnimeNYC is coming again this year, Bee and Puppycat is getting a second season co-produced by OLM, and Otaku Coin is something to avoid.
The GeekNights Community Forum is pretty great, and you should join it!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review a game we've been waiting for longer than you can imagine. Just Shapes and Beats. Rym got it on Switch, Scott got it on Steam. They're both fine. It's shapes and beats. It evokes the same brainfeel as Super Hexagon, but fully evolved.
In the news, Rym runs afoul of old people in bike lanes, Fallout 76 looks intriguing, and Mario Tennis Aces looks promising, but has unusable network play in its current state. We'll hopefully see you at both PAX Unplugged and PAX West!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the charming Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku. We "reviewed" it previously in our Judge Anime by its Cover series. In the news, the worst Lupin III - The Legend of the Gold of Babylon - is getting a bluray release and a new dub, Fireworks is coming to theaters, Locke and Key is likely to be on Netflix, Netflix is making comics now, and we'll be reviewing Made in Abyss soon!
Tonight on GeekNights, considering the ethics of game design, we review the horror that is Big Fish Casino, which was recently banned in the state of Washington. It uses every trick in the book to addict you to gambling your real money for nothing. In the news, the Vegas Golden Knights are going to the Stanley Cup Finals, and Valve's "crackdown on VNs" is complex and troubling.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the recent Netflix x Sanrio hit Aggretsuko. In the news, Marmalade Boy live action, Stan Lee's lawsuit against Pow! Entertainment, Rym returning from TCAF, and Rick and Morty getting picked up for 70 more episodes.
