Isle of Dogs

Tonight on a special GeekNights Rymily Review, Rym and Emily consider Wes Anderson's new Isle of Dogs. It's thoroughly enjoyable, gritty and beautiful, but has a number of problems.

Lu Over the Wall

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Masaaki Yuasa's wonderful Lu Over the Wall. It's an anime movie that you definitely should make time to see. In the news, we'll be watching In This Corner of the World soon, we are reminded of the era of the APEX DVD Player, and Adventure Time is coming to an end.

Be sure to see us LIVE at PAX East, and tell us if our Winter Anime Reviews were right!

Tech Review Roundup: Spring 2018

Tonight on GeekNights, we review a number of different tech items we've purchased recently. USB Cables, the LG Style smartwatch, the Synology + Series NAS, The WD 4TB Passport Wireless Pro, various wired and wireless headphones, and some other miscellaneous tech. In the news, an Uber self-driving car killed a person, and there's a lot going on with the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data breach.

Slay the Spire

Tonight on GeekNights, despite Scott having a plague, we consider the excellent Slay the Spire (PC), still in early access and already well worth your time. It's a single-player roguelike deckbuilder. In the news, Rym will see about bringing Fireball Island to PAX East (where we'll be performing live), Smash Brothers is coming to Switch, and you lost your hour for the greater good.

Pop Team Epic

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the unique and notable Pop Team Epic. It's the distilled loss-edit WarioWare micro-parody anime phenomenon that probably invaded your social media for a little while. Rym seems to like it. In the news, The Sandman Universe is coming, anime is mainstream, which seems to bother some people, and we'll be live at PAX East!

Meeple Circus

Tonight on GeekNights, we review C├ędric Millet's Meeple Circus. It's a stacking dexterity game that doesn't have some of the fundamental problems of games like Villa Paletti or Jenga, and it captures the component stacking ways of basically everyone who's ever played tabletop games.

In the news, Into the Breach shows promise, Overwatch is investing in CTF, and Slay the Spire is already pretty hot. We'll also be live at PAX East 2018!

DEVILMAN crybaby

Tonight on GeekNights, is he a MAN? A DEVIL? A DEVILMAN? We consider the recent hit DEVILMAN crybaby, which has been generating surprising interest and may well be the first introduction of a new generation of anime fans to Go Nagai. Directed by Masaaki Yuasa, it's evocative of the ultra-violent OAVs of 90s US anime fandom, but with a modern sensibility. Warning: it's ultra ultra violent.

In the news, DANCE RUSH is up our alley in a way no game has been since DDR, and Rym and Emily have a no-spoiler review of Black Panther. We will also be live at PAX East!
