Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Scott have watched a bunch of different anime, but not much of the same anime. So we talk about some Space Patrol Luluco, Lupin, Joker Game, Erased (which Emily and Rym both reviewed and did some final thoughts for on the Patreon), Kiznaiver, Sakamoto, and more. In the news, Captain America joins Hydra, and the NYCC is trying something with its badge sellout problem. I guess, and
Tonight on GeekNights, with two and .25 plays respectively, we review Fast Food Franchise and Food Chain Magnate. Scott laments a cookie thief, Civilization VI is coming just as we start to get really into Civ V, and the 2016 Spiel Des Jahres nominees are now known.
The GeekNights Patreon is going strong with Rym and Emily reviews, bonus shows, and more!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review and discuss Miitomo. We could arguably have talked about it on basically any GeekNights night, but we chose Tuesday because while it is a social network, it is also a candy box. And, it was made by Nintendo. In other news, Rym is frightened and confused by Fast Food Franchise, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! has been reluctant to reveal its mysteries, and the worst people on Earth attack an indie game, while the zeitgeist of humanity attacks a random farm.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the awful, minimum-effort exercise in mediocrity that is the Phoenix Wright anime: Ace Attorney. It's not even worth watching one episode: it's just a 100% redo of the first game, with shoddy animation and annoying voice acting. In other news, anime clubs are (surprisingly) on the rise, and it's time to renew that Crunchyroll subscription.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Wolfgang Kramer's fantastic 6 nimmt! If you need a versatile, quick-to-teach, quick-to-play intense game for 3-10 players, this is your jam. It's in the spirit of Nim (hence the name), but supports many players and does not break down so quickly.
In other news, Nintendo's much-awaited Miitomo is coming to the US in a few days. Rym and Scott are playing a LOT of Civilization V lately via Giant Multiplayer Robot. PAX East (where we are performing Sunday) will have an amazing Thursday tabletop dungeon. A prankster/security researched released a game on Steam without Valve knowing about it.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Gravity Falls in full. It's a pretty solid cartoon. In the news, we will be doing five shows at Anime Boston this weekend. Escaflowne is getting a dub via pre-orders on Kickstarter. Sakamoto desu ga looks up our alley. Also we talk a bunch about bike rooms, bike laws, and bike thieves.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mamoru Hosoda's The Boy and the Beast. As with almost every anime movie we review, it's definitely worth seeing. Zootopia is fantastic, and Azumanga Daioh is on Hulu. Stay tuned for us live at Anime Boston, Zenkaikon, and PAX East!
