Overcooked

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Overcooked. 4-player local multiplayer done right, it's definitely worth owning. We'll be playing it in our room at MAGFest, which is THIS WEEK. In other news, Frog Fractions 2 appeared (you should play Frog Fractions 1 if you haven't already) in glorious form, and Owlboy is sadly mediocre.

The 11-year-running GeekNights forum is entering stasis, replaced by the new GeekNights Community: join us in a glorious tower of ivory.

Doom (2016)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Doom (2016). It's a worthy successor to the Doom legacy, though it has a touch of Half Life 2 and never really backs you into a corner the way its ancestors did. It's basically MAP08: Tricks and Traps from Doom 2. In other news, Super Mario Run is out, with half the world saying it's great and half the world flipping out that it costs money.

Moana

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily review Disney's Moana. It's, in a word, fantastic, and we recommend you see it in theaters in 3D while you still can. If you enjoy Rymily Reviews, there are plenty more in the GeekNights Patreon! Stay tuned for the upcoming Rym and Scott Christmas Special.

Jackbox Party Pack 3

Tonight on GeekNights we review the Jackbox Party Pack 3. You may recall our review of the first one, so listen to that for all the structural and general discussion of how these games work and why they're important. We're here tonight to review the games in the third one in detail. It's worth the price for Quiplash 2 alone. Tee K.O. is quite an experience, but requires more investment. Guesspionage is average. Fakin' It is a great idea poorly executed. Trivia Murder Party is as painful as it is awful. But overall, buy this even if just for the two great ones.

In the news, hanjo continues his journey to the bottom of Overwatch, and PaRappa the Rapper is getting a remake for his 20th anniversary!

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. It's pretty great, despite the horror of its origin. In the news, the live action Ghost in the Shell and Your Name trailers are out! We had a great time at GaymerX East, and we'll see you at MAGFest and PAX South! Stay strong.

Patchwork

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Uwe Rosenberg's Patchwork. It's a cute, quick-to-learn two player game, in the realm of Morels or Lost Cities. Worth adding to your collection. In the news, I hope you voted, Blizzard makes serious moves into professionalizing esports, and all the Blizzard stuff happened simultaneous to all the Netrunner stuff and all the PAX Aus stuff: big week(end) for gaming news!

Civilization VI Initial Thoughts

Tonight on GeekNights, we bring our initial thoughts on Civilization VI. In the news, Giant Multiplayer Robot is likely to be able to support Civ VI, Really Bad Chess is really great, and Nintendo Switch cometh (to Scott's interest and Rym's ambivalence). We'll be live at GaymerX East, and also at MAGFest! Check out the GeekNights Patreon, Rym's youtube channel, and Scott's youtube channel!
