Tonight on GeekNights, having recovered from soul-crushing sickness, we attempt to discuss Bomberman. In the news, Square Enix is making Mario Sports Mix, and we need to preserve old games via good emulation before it's too late.

Also, don't forget that we'll be presenting Losing Should Be Fun at MAGFest 2011, nevermind sitting on two additional panels as part of the MAG-9!


Tonight on GeekNights, Red Commander surrounds castle walls to stay alive with the classic Rampart! But first, an impassioned plea for a proper turn system in Civ V, excitement about the newest Golden Sun, and a discussion of whether people are truly abandoning portable consoles for iPhones.


Tonight, aside from the historicity of Davy Crockett, we consider the humble Pacman in lights of the most recent (and excellent) Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. In the news, it's Child's Play season, Bananagrams is the hot thing to play, and Farmciv is not likely to be good.

Renting Games

Tonight on GeekNights we consider the magical world of rented games. But before that, we have Blizzard suing cheaters, and Microsoft is futzing with the "indy" category for Xbox games.

Civilization V

Tonight on GeekNights we bring our review of Civilization V now that it's had its first major patch set. In the news, Scribblenauts 2 involves adjectives, and Rock Band 3's Pro Mode is looking slick.


Tonight on GeekNights, we have Andy Schatz, the creator of the award-winning game Monaco. We skip on the news, since Civ V is out, and Napoleon yet lives.
