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.

Rock of Ages

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the surprising and interesting Rock of Ages. In the news, id releases Rage, Xenonauts might be X-Com, and Risk Legacy brings statefulness to boardgames (for good or ill, we cannot yet say).

Half-Minute Hero

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the refreshing Half-Minute Hero on XBLA. Gamepro moves to a quarterly format and EA buys Popcap for over a billion dollars.

We also consider a number of XBLA games, but only Catherine stands out.

Portal 2

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Portal 2. (Hint: there is no reason not to buy this game). We also consider Sony's egregiously inept IT, and Nintendo's egregiously unrealized potential as they move from the Wii to the double Wii with Project Cafe.

Super Meat Boy

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss Super Meat Boy in all its glory. But before that, we geekbite a bit on Cthulhu Saves the World, touch on the final rooting of the PS3 (and the revealed key), and a video of epic Quake mastery. Also recall that MAGFEST 9 approacheth, and we shall speaketh there.
