Tonight on GeekNights, we review the city of San Antonio, Texas. We were stuck there for several days after PAX South thanks to the blizzard in the northeast canceling our flights. In the news, Microsoft is giving everyone a free upgrade to Windows 10, though won't be supporting the pirates after that. In a word, it's confusing. Meanwhile, Musk and Kalanick both say (correctly) that self-driving cars will replace human drivers, but Lyft's Green panders to the luddites in insisting that this won't happen.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about air travel and flying. In the news, we're going to be at Anime Boston live! Also, there are people trying to create hell for prisoners a la Surface Detail, and the GH4 4k camera cometh!
Tonight on GeekNights, as we prepare for PAX Prime (where we'll be presenting Bad Games), we finish the tales of our trip to Australia for PAX AUS (where we presented Beyond Dungeons & Dragons). Scott broke his arm, we saw some jazz in Fitzroy, Ned Kelly was possibly the first weeaboo, and we hit up some game stores. Before that, Elder Scrolls Online costs money AND has microtransactions, and the Nuremburg Trials brought about the first use of extempore simultaneous interpretation.
Tonight on GeekNights, we start to tell tales of our time in Australia, speficially Melbourne and Phillip Island. From immigrant issues to meat pies, Myki cards, THE EDGE (and BASE jumping, Asian food, minimum wage, and more! We saw little penguins and furry balls in trees, nevermind a HUGE footy game. Stay tuned for part 2.
Tonight brings GeekNights' triumphant return, as Rym himself returns from Istanbul by way of Germany to resume the normal show schedule! We talk about that, but not before some discussion of Toonami's return and a GeekBite of The Avengers, nevermind ConnectiCon 2012 and the changes to our web site! We return. We live. We hunger.
Tonight on GeekNights, Rym shares the scantest beginnings of his experiences traveling in Mumbai and Hyderabad, India. In the lounge, we consider the unique advantages of satire in the Daily show, as well as an interesting story highlighting how, if you're rich and clever enough, you can indeed break the bank.
