Tonight on GeekNights, we review and discuss PAX West 2023. The new venue is fantastic and it felt a lot like PAXes from the golden age of PAX. In the news, Scott suffered Airport Adventures yet made it to Chicaco, Steam (and our Steam accounts) are 20 years old, and the Unity game engine destroys itself with an actively hostile monetization model that is somehow worse than we expected from their 2022 merger with evil.
Tonight on GeekNights, back from PAX Unplugged (which live streamed one of our panels), we review Marc Paquien's wonderful Treasure Island (2018), which we both played for the first time at PAX. In the news, Epic Games is taking a shot at Valve, Smash Brothers is coming, and Rastakhan's Rumble came!
Tonight on GeekNights, we're excited to bring some hype to the second PAX Unplugged ever! We will be there doing TWO panels: Learn & WIN Puerto Rico and The 40 Tabletop Games You Must Play. Unplugged is a full-on for-real PAX, with some highly specialized Owl Bear content, one hell of a schedule overall, and of course plenty of tabletop freeplay.
