Potion Explosion

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Potion Explosion. It's from 2015, it has an excellent conceit, but it really only shines as a kids/family game. It even has an expansion. We're back from PAX South, which is a full and proper PAX! Air Hockey was finally the Omegathon Finale! PAX Unplugged becomes the fifth PAX in PA, though it's the same weekend as the anime con to save anime cons (Anime NYC): we may have to split our efforts between them.

Sailor Moon S Movie

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Sailor Moon S movie. Specifically, we review the dub. Cats apparently can't fall in love. Except when they fall in love. But then they give up on love and settle. In the news, the Dragon Half manga is coming to America, the new Little Witch Academia is a (great) reboot of the original, and Yowamushi Pedal has a new season.

We are on our way to PAX South right now to give a panel on Friday about Grind Mechanics in Games! See you there! Support GeekNights on Patreon!

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!

Support GeekNights on Patreon! Rym's in there reading the novelization of Simon's Quest for you. The new GeekNights Politics Club had its first episode.

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.
