Portal 2

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.

Castle Waiting

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!

Book Club: Hyperspace

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.

Yomi: Fantasy Strike

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Yomi: Fantasy Strike (from the maker of Puzzle Strike). But before that, Rym has a geekbite on the Rush'n Attack reboot Rush'n Attack: Ex-Patriot (TL;DL: not enough rushing, too much Russian, and far too little attacking) and Scott considers Jane McGonigal's new game Find the Future.

PAX East 2011 and Spot It

Tonight on GeekNights, back from both PAX and Zenkaikon, we bring you our review of the surprisingly entertaining Spot It and highlights from PAX East 2011. We also have some thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS, having now finally manhandled one (though not, as it were, at PAX).

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the hit new animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's a reboot of the My Little Pony universe produced by Studio B Productions, and it has some surprising demographics. There's also a Thundercats reboot coming involving Studio 4C, and Bone is coming in color (again)!

Mahou Tsukai Tai OAV

Tonight on GeekNights, we recall the surprisingly solid 90s OAV Mahou Tsukai Tai (including its adorable opener). In the news, the New York International Children's Film Festival returns with, among other wonderful screenings, Time of Eve and Welcome to the Space Show. Also, the Pokemon Trainer Challenge comes to be.
