Tonight on GeekNights, we have us some fun with Predator (1987), the classic Arnold movie whose cast brought us not one, but two US state governors. In the news, Yuu Miyake is performing at MAGFest 2015, we (GeekNights) are performing at PAX South 2015 that same weekend, and the social media "years in review" aren't always the best for people whose years weren't so great.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful webcomic Cucumber Quest by Gigi d.g. Beautiful art, great characters: in some ways a cross between the fantasy parts of Bone and the zany fun of Adventure Time. But first, Sailor Moon Crystal is basically being reanimated in a style more like the original anime on Blu Ray, so there's literally no reason to watch it on TV/Crunchyroll. Rym gives us a brief review of Rick and Morty (of which he is a great fan), and Brian K. Vaughan is in New York (as you should be).
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Wizard, which was the GeekNights breakout game of PAX Australia 2014! In the news, there was officiating/game drama at the Dreamhack Winter CounterStrike tournament (leading to some debate in the forum), and Tekken fans are mad about a new character in Tekken. Also, be sure to come see us at PAX South!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Tetsuya Tsutui's Prophecy (manga). It's essentially about 4chan terrorists who understand technology and act accordingly. The tech is surprisingly realistic. If the topic scares you: it should. Interestingly, the best source of information on this manga is its French wikipedia page.
Rym made an AMV, and in doing so discovered (through intense archaeological excavation) that animemusicvideos.org still exists, largely unchanged from ancient times. Otakon, after their ridiculous badge disaster, has finally decided to almost maybe do the right thing and MAIL the BADGES. (Vote in their poll: it ends December 5th!) Also, The Kingdom of Dreams & Madness is airing in New York, but don't bother seeing it in person: it will be available for digital download on December 9th!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new episodes of Bee and Puppycat on Cartoon Hangover. It's a delightful show, and there's every reason to watch it. Rym also brings us some thoughts on the cartoons he's been watching lately (The Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe, Sailor Moon (again), Sailor Moon Crystal, and My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks (don't watch that one). In Japan, the top two anime on TV are still Sazae-san and Doraemon.
Tonight on GeekNights, back from PAX Australia and resuming our regular schedule (as well as our ninth year of the show), we bring you our coverage of PAX Australis 2014, our review (and old-man talk) of and around Super Smash Brothers on the 3DS, discussion of cheating in tabletop tournaments, amazing competition at the Fantasy Flight world championships, Blizzard's Overwatch, Kotaku's unfortunate character count in the title of their recent article on it, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. It's basically pornography for Gundam fans, and might be both incomprehensible and emotionally void if you aren't too knowledgeable about Gundam. In the news, GeekNights is back! At least, back until Rym goes to PAX Australia. Hatsune Miku will have a concert in New York in October. Scott tells us how not to pronounce Rosh Hashanah, and South Park is back tonight!
