Tonight on GeekNights, we review Golf. This includes mini golf. In the news, Microsoft is likely buying Discord, Xbox Live is dead, Emily is Away 3 brings us to the Facebook era, Shredder's Revenge brings us a solid-looking TMNT game, and Magic: Legends is now in open beta.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about technology in sports, the technology of sports, sports technology, and technical aspects of sport. Eventually, it will all be humans controlled by machines, or else just machines themselves anyway, but what will happen (and has happened) in the more recent term? In other news, Twitch.tv is the #4 consumer of bandwidth in the US (thanks to gamers streaming their games), and the NYPD is looking into using Google Glass.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider yard games like Bocce, Cornhole, Horseshoes, and Badminton. These games share certain characteristics: they must be reasonably deep orthogames, have shallow learning curves, and provide contextual social opportunities yet not require them. Rym reviews Ingress (it's a Candy Box), and Scott takes a guess that Pandemic: The Cure doesn't fall too far from the tree. We posit on why anyone even bothers to play Pandemic. Rym has Google Glass.
