Tonight on GeekNights, we return triumphant from PAX Australia to talk about... PAX Australia! PC gaming and anime are big there, and it was in all senses a proper PAX. It was, however, in a BIG TOP. In the news, Steam Summer Sale aside, there is talk of collusion in fight game tournaments and things aren't looking so great for Nintendo as the Wii continues to outsell the Wii-U, and they're making a lot of their money from Candy Box games. Maybe they should just break the glass and make the Pokemon MMO.
Tonight on GeekNights, we reveiew the delightful Hanabi from Antoine Bauza, itself having just been awarded the Spiel des Jahres for 2013! It's a co-op, information sharing game that avoids all of the problems of games like Pandemic or Shadows over Camelot. We also briefly review the extremely disappointing and woefully uninspired Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! and realize that Civilization V: Brave New World will destroy our lives.
We're going to be on a minor hiatus until we're back from ConnectiCon and PAX Australia, so be sure to check out our videos, twitters (@apreche, @schezar, @geeknights), and various assorted Internets while we're gone! And, if you're in Melbourne, let us know and come say hi!
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, returning triumphant from Anime Boston, we review Richard Garfield's King of Tokyo. It's a great warmup game, but it made us realize that far too few of you have ever played Yahtzee. We also discuss the new Xbox1 and the GTX780. Stay tuned for ConnectiCon and PAX Australia!
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.
