Eclipse Board Game

Tonight on GeekNights, we make our triumphant return from MAGFest X to bring you a review of Eclipse. In the news, PAX East 2012 is sold out (so you'd better have already bought tickets like we warned you), but you can still sign up to be an Enforcer. Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition is coming, and Vox is coming to take the game blogging world by storm.

Redline

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the much-hyped (and justifiably so) Redline. It's worth your while. It's also worth a non-anime-fan's while. It's also put out by Madhouse. Akio may or may not have a cameo.

The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm

Tonight on the GeekNights Book Club, we bring you our full and final thoughts on The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm (and the Oxford Comma) by Nancy Farmer. It's a charming, light book, set in a future Africa, that should be an enjoyable read for anyone who isn't a filthy Gondwanan.

Up next on the GeekNights Book Club, we discuss The Little Prince and Wind, Sand, and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exup

The New 52: Week Two

The New 52: Week One

Tonight on GeekNights, we begin reviewing the New 52 from DC Comics. We begin with Justice League, Action Comics, Animal Man, Batgirl, Batwing, Detective Comics, Green Arrow, Hawk and Dove, Justice League International, Men of War, O.M.A.C., Static Shock, Stormwatch, and Swamp Thing! Some of them are pretty good. Some of them are, well... In the news, the New York Comic Con (and what's left of the vestigal New York Anime Festival is this weekend, and alcohol's effects are possibly largely based on cultural perception.

Rock of Ages

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the surprising and interesting Rock of Ages. In the news, id releases Rage, Xenonauts might be X-Com, and Risk Legacy brings statefulness to boardgames (for good or ill, we cannot yet say).

Hive

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the simple, perfect information, complete information two-player boardgame Hive. Natural Selection 2 is still unplayable (but 1 is just fine), Sony goes extra silly with its PSN TOS, and printing weapons is the inevitability we all have always assumed it would be.
