Tonight on GeekNights, we return from PAX East to review the phenomenal and groundbreaking Baba is You. This game is a must-buy, and is one of the greatest push-puzzle games ever made. In the news, Borderlands 3 cometh, you can get a year of Nintendo Online for free, Crown of Emara is a stand-out game, Smartphone Inc was played incorrectly by a lot of people, and Yu-Gi-Oh has banished players to the Shower Realm.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the extremely polished Namco Museum that came out for the Nintendo Switch. It's worth the purchase price just for Pacman Vs, literally one of the best games to ever be made for the Gamecube. Bonus points for having Dig Dug!
In the news, Civilization VI had a major update, a bad looking Civilization VI board game is coming, DotA bots superior, humans inferior (at solo mid), Nidhogg 2 appears to fail to capture the magic, and For Honor has some exploit issues in an amazing tournament.
We will be live at PAX West 2017 talking about rage quitters!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the hit new visual novel Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. It's pretty great. You both are a dad, and you can date dads. Dads all the way down.
In the news, e-sports are getting serious treatment at MSG, Hearthstone is pushing the limits of card game mechanics, GameStop still exists, a gamer cruise fails, PUBG angers fans with early cosmetic loot crates, and Samus Returns brings a dark new pact with Amiibos.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the utterly unique TumbleSeed, a cross between a roguelike and Taito's Ice Cold Beer. In the news, the Race for the Galaxy app is ace, Blizzard really booched a major Hearthstone tournament, a cheating scandal in the world of speedrunning, Niantic shadowbanning Pokemon GO "cheaters," and two listener questions around rules to games.
Tonight on GeekNights, we confirm that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is legit. In other news, TumbleSeed is really hard, Uniqlo's Nintendo shirts are off the hook, and esports journalism has a long way to go...
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.live at MAGFest. Support GeekNights on Patreon!
