Tonight on GeekNights, we review Doom (2016). It's a worthy successor to the Doom legacy, though it has a touch of Half Life 2 and never really backs you into a corner the way its ancestors did. It's basically MAP08: Tricks and Traps from Doom 2. In other news, Super Mario Run is out, with half the world saying it's great and half the world flipping out that it costs money.

Tonight on GeekNights we review the Jackbox Party Pack 3. You may recall our review of the first one, so listen to that for all the structural and general discussion of how these games work and why they're important. We're here tonight to review the games in the third one in detail. It's worth the price for Quiplash 2 alone. Tee K.O. is quite an experience, but requires more investment. Guesspionage is average. Fakin' It is a great idea poorly executed. Trivia Murder Party is as painful as it is awful. But overall, buy this even if just for the two great ones.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Uwe Rosenberg's Patchwork. It's a cute, quick-to-learn two player game, in the realm of Morels or Lost Cities. Worth adding to your collection. In the news, I hope you voted, Blizzard makes serious moves into professionalizing esports, and all the Blizzard stuff happened simultaneous to all the Netrunner stuff and all the PAX Aus stuff: big week(end) for gaming news!
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring our initial thoughts on Civilization VI. In the news, Giant Multiplayer Robot is likely to be able to support Civ VI, Really Bad Chess is really great, and Nintendo Switch cometh (to Scott's interest and Rym's ambivalence). We'll be live at GaymerX East, and also at MAGFest! Check out the GeekNights Patreon, Rym's youtube channel, and Scott's youtube channel!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider some press your luck mechanics with the wonderful Deep Sea Adventure. It's a shared space treasure-hunting drowning simulator. In other news, Rym keeps playing Overwatch daily, Scott hates all that is good in the world, and the gold rush of pro sports buying esports teams begins.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Captain Sonar. We're back from PAX West, Rym's back from Utah, and we're ready to return to our regular schedule! The Omegathon Finale was a sequel to the last one, Apple Day both giveth Mario, and taketh away headphone jacks. Downtown Seattle does not have delivery pizza. Pokemon GO enables the lollipop farm even as the player base walks away.
Tonight on GeekNights, we dissect and discuss the fascinating story of how Warbits was made. Scott GeekBites Dubwars, and the time is ripe for video card buying. An instance of our Atari Game Design lecture from PAX East is on youtube!
