Tonight on GeekNights, we review the extremely polished Namco Museum that came out for the Nintendo Switch. It's worth the purchase price just for Pacman Vs, literally one of the best games to ever be made for the Gamecube. Bonus points for having Dig Dug!
In the news, Civilization VI had a major update, a bad looking Civilization VI board game is coming, DotA bots superior, humans inferior (at solo mid), Nidhogg 2 appears to fail to capture the magic, and For Honor has some exploit issues in an amazing tournament.
We will be live at PAX West 2017 talking about rage quitters!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the hit new visual novel Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. It's pretty great. You both are a dad, and you can date dads. Dads all the way down.
In the news, e-sports are getting serious treatment at MSG, Hearthstone is pushing the limits of card game mechanics, GameStop still exists, a gamer cruise fails, PUBG angers fans with early cosmetic loot crates, and Samus Returns brings a dark new pact with Amiibos.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Eccentric Family. It is easily one of the best anime in recent memory. In the news, Crunchyroll wants to bankroll its own anime, and we are back from ConnectiCon! Our GeekNights Book Club episode on Dune will be next Thursday, and our next con is PAX West!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the widely played and well liked Race for the Galaxy! It shares many concepts and design patterns with the classic Puerto Rico. In the news, E3 happened, there are one and a half new Metroid games coming, Nidhogg 2 terrifies us, Blizzard has a two-year exclusivity deal with Twitch, SSDs can burst into flame, Overwatch rankings rankled many players, and Geek Chic kicked the bucket.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the utterly unique TumbleSeed, a cross between a roguelike and Taito's Ice Cold Beer. In the news, the Race for the Galaxy app is ace, Blizzard really booched a major Hearthstone tournament, a cheating scandal in the world of speedrunning, Niantic shadowbanning Pokemon GO "cheaters," and two listener questions around rules to games.
Tonight on GeekNights, we confirm that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is legit. In other news, TumbleSeed is really hard, Uniqlo's Nintendo shirts are off the hook, and esports journalism has a long way to go...
Tonight on GeekNights we review two great short comics: Junji Ito's Dissolving Classroom and Mathilde Kitteh / Luca Oliveri's Wrecked Hearts. One is Japanese body horror, and the other is dark scifi shoujo. In the news, the core of anime torrents has died, the 2D Breath of the Wild is (obviously) taken down, Ghibli movies are in theaters, and all of Utena is free legally on youtube.
