Nokosu Dice

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new hotness we played at PAX Unplugged's First Look, Yusuke Matsumoto's Nokosu Dice. It's a trick taking game like nothing you've ever played before, and we're already obsessed with it. A perfect complement to Wizard, this one is a must-buy!

In the news, Old Man Scott doesn't want you to listen to GeekNights, Fantasy Flight Interactive shuts down, AGDQ was pretty solid this year, Oath is probably going to be good, and Slay the Spire got even better.

Come see us live at PAX South 2020 with an all new panel!

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, back briefly from the hiatus of Rym flying around Asia before we head to PAX Unplugged and MAGFest, we consider the fantastic remake of one of the best Zelda games: Link's Awakening. In the news, we consider Steam Remote Play Together, Baba is You and has level editor (without needing hacks), and the Steam Controller is finally gone.

2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt

Tonight on GeekNights, we review a train game - 2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt. We assume that you are at least somewhat familiar with train games. In the news, Scott buys some jeans, hockey season begins, China is trying to censor The NBA and Activision Blizzard.

Mario Maker 2

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch. In the news, Loot Crate is bankrupt, Dire Wolf Digital is bringing, among other things, Root to digital, System Shock 2's patch history is fascinating, and it's getting an "Enhanced Edition."

The Wizard's Grimoire

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Vincent Baker's The Wizard's Grimoire. It's an RPG for one player and two volunteers, and it's definitely worth playing. In the news, professional Fortnite is still amateur hour (though this probably doesn't even matter), Bethesda Bethesda'd Doom on the Switch, the Overwatch role queue is a significant maturation of professional esports, and the 8BitDo SN30 might be the one controller to rule them all.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Koji Igarashi's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It's a fantastic addition to the Metroidvania genre, though it suffers from technical problems on the Switch.

In the news, Overwatch takes an even heavier hand with cheaters, Overwatch League moves to a division format with some local home games, Civilization VI play-by-cloud has a lot of issues (try Giant Multiplayer Robot or Play Your Damn Turn for now), Fortnite joins the list of games banned in Jordan, and people will do anything to avoid grinding in Destiny 2.
