Tonight on GeekNights, the cute Hipira and the fun Wakfu. DC Comics is trying digital distribution and a universal relaunch, Kevin Smith is putting on a reality show set in a comic shop, and Foreskin man might be somewhat anti-semitic.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider two two-player warm-up card games: R-Eco and Battle Line (a remake of Knizia's earlier Schotten-Totten). We also consider our recent CounterStrike play (more to come), the DS Lite price drop, and Activision's coming subscription service for Call of Duty.
Also, if you're so inclined, take a gander at our good friend's team for the Tri-State Trek to fight ALS.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Sprit) anime (directed by Satoshi Nishimura, who you may remember for directing Trigun)! But first, Takashi Miike is supposedly directing the Phoenix Wright movie, The Big Apple Comic Con had some lackluster press, lost a minor guest due to alleged child pornography charges, and saw the expanding Earth swallow up some of Neal Adams original work.
Tonight, get your aaasss to maaahs with the 90s classic Total Recall. But first, a brave man who fights the tides of Internet comments, a brave man shooting the moon on some Middle Eastern foreign policy, and some manufactured outrage.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Portal 2. (Hint: there is no reason not to buy this game). We also consider Sony's egregiously inept IT, and Nintendo's egregiously unrealized potential as they move from the Wii to the double Wii with Project Cafe.
Tonight on GeekNights we review the wonderful Castle Waiting by Linda Medley. Also tonight, consider Mike Toole's exploration of the late and great Osamu Dezaki and a fans' petition to bring back the OLD Transformers comics. We're also back from Anime Boston, and we're still taking panel/workshop submissions for ConnectiCon 2011!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review, under the auspices of the GeekNights Book Club, Michio Kaku's Hyperspace. Scott is happy about a surprisingly effective law against strangulation, and Rym is amazed at the fear young punk kids instill in the old and white of Ohio.
