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.

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.
