Cards Against Humanity and Real Money Auction Houses

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Cards Against Humanity (a worthy successor to Apples to Apples, and then consider the ramifications of the Real Money Auction House (RMAH) and related systems on the gaming world at large. Diablo III, after all, is just the beginning of this. We also note that Pokemon Conquest is pretty fun so far, and don't forget ConnectiCon 2012 is fast approaching!

Trigger and Abobo's Big Adventure

Tonight on GeekNights, Daddy two reviews! Now that Scott's beaten it, we talk about Abobo's Big Adventure, but not before we review Trigger!, which is from the same people who brought us the wonderful Spot-It! (Spoilers: it's actually pretty mediocre, and definitely a disappointment next to Spot-It). In the news, Wil Wheaton's Tabletop is a thing, Game Gear games are coming to the 3DS, and Nintendo is trying to make multiplayer more intuitive despite their (sarcastically) glowing history of this.

Also, ConnectiCon 2012 Panel/Workshop submissions are open!

Elevator Source

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Elevator Source: a "thrilling co-op experience" with "realistic elevator physics" and "cunning, state of the art AI!" Rym has some thoughts on Deus X: Human Revolution after having finished his 27 hours of play, Microsoft Flight is FREE, and Direct2Drive died and took some games with it (also know as "why I only ever buy games from Steam").

Strategy Guides

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider ye olde strategy guide, which seems to have no place in this modern world. Of course, we talk quite a bit about other things, like THE GIANTS, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Abobo's Big Adventure, Syndicate's re-release on GoG, and The Binding of Issac. Rym's also really into Game of Thrones recently.


Tonight on GeekNights, we bring you our coverage of MAGFest X! Of course, as much as has changed, much has stayed the same, so be sure to check out our coverage of MAGFest 9 too. But first, in the news, CES brings us an interesting device - the Boxee Box Live TV dongle - that doesn't appear to have a market, and the coming battles over "smart TVs" will go predictably nowhere. Also, Kim Jong-il is set to be Lenined.

100 Percent in Games

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what drives us and others to truly "100%" a game. On the way, we discuss humble bundles and how working at Zynga may not be the most fun job one could have.
