Tonight on GeekNights, back from Istanbul and PAX (for real this time), we consider the Steam Box, PAC-MAN CE DX+ on Steam, Mighty Number 9, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. We're also resuming production of GeekNights Presents: Utena, and will soon be streaming many more... things.
Tonight on GeekNights, with all the news about Xbox1 and Playstation 4, we talk about the used games, DRM, and other assorted topics that have come up in relation.
Tonight on GeekNights, we nominally talk about passwords and cheat codes (e.g., why PAKING PAKING PAKING PAKING and 8uuuuu uuuuuu uuuuuu uuuuuu work the way they do). We also talk at length about why World of Warcraft is fading so quickly, the Stanley Cup playoffs, and a new Adventure Time game is coming.
Tonight on GeekNights, having waited since 2010 for this, we finally are able to review the fantastic Monaco. TL;DL: It's an unqualified "must buy." Recall that we interviewed Andy Schatz on the subject once. Also, Counter-Strike: GO gets an update, bringing back a classic map and a widely misunderstood Operation Payback, and Papers Please looks extremely promising.
Tonight on GeekNights, an echo of our previous Games only Rym Likes episode, Scott discuses the games that he alone likes (or else that he feels are surprisingly forgotten). Before that, "always on consoles" and why Adam Orth was so wrong, Luke Crane and Thor Olavsrud's announcement of Torchbearer, and the Castle of Illusion remake.

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about the faded, then revitalized "genre" of point-and-click (or "type in a command") adventure games! From King's Quest to Quest for Glory, Space Quest to Full Throttle, Grim Fandango to Police Quest, nevermind Maniac Mansion or Day of the Tentacle, we recall what these games were to us as kids, and what they are to us now, all of this in light of a recent little game called Kentucky Route Zero.
Also, Scott's Hexbright Kickstarter flashlight finally arrived (with disastrous consequences), Rym's office has a meme infection, Dungeon Village is perfect if you like dungeons and need something cute to poke, and augmented reality may well bring trouble to tabletop board games.We've uploaded the third and final video of our recent MAGFest appearances - Video Game Ethics - and we're ready to rock two PAX East lectures.
Tonight on a very special Christmas episode of GeekNights, we review pumping, stylistic Hotline Miami. Before that, we consider the best Christmas movie ever made, Skiing and zeal, the God of Cedar Point, Scott commanding in Natural Selection 2, and Rym's experiences managing a CounterStrike: GO server (in all its undocumented glory).
