The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It's one of the best pieces of entertainment software ever made. 11/10. S-Tier. A case study in good game design. Just go play it if you aren't already. In the news, Overwatch 2 is banning 5,000 cheaters a week, Street Fighter 6's control modes are looking pretty good, and Wizards of the Coast called the Pinkertons on a youtuber.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Makoto Shinkai's 2022 film Suzume (すずめの戸締まり). It's a road trip movie about shared and distant trauma. And a chair. In the news, The Owl House stuck the landing and Shin Kamen Rider is screening in the US!
Cat in the Box (2022)
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Muneyuki Yokouchi's fantastic Cat in the Box. This is an S-tier trick taking game. A must-own. It takes about two minutes to teach (three if the player is unfamiliar with trick taking games) and we've had a blast with it so far.
In the news, the world is safer today as Finland formally joins NATO, a Florida man is indicted for fraud, Klaus Teuber, the designer of the timeless classic Settlers of Catan, has passed away at age 70, and the new D&D movie might be good.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Stacklands (2022). In the news, Counter-Strike 2 is likely coming, Disco Elysium gets a collage mode, and DPReview falls victim to Amazon layoffs and capitalism.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2023)
Tonight on GeekNights we review the 2023 animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The animation and style are fantastic, and if you have or know kids this is a show for them! In the news, Rym bought a new wallet, don't watch any more Made in Abyss, the NHL did a cool telemetry-driven hockey broadcast, and Ghibli Fest 2023 is on!
Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama (1993)
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the 1993 anime movie Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama. It's long, and there are fighter jets. YMMV on this one, but if you enjoy Dynasty Warriors it might be for you. Also Hanuman is OP. In the news, the live-action sequel to Whisper of the Heart will be in theaters February 3. Shin Ultraman is exactly what you'd expect.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review BRZRKR from Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt, Ron Garney, and Bill Crabtree. It might hit you like a truck. Also Reaves is really into Wolverine. In the news, the United States House of Representatives is frozen as the Republicans repeatedly fail to elect a Speaker (something so unthinkable it literally hasn't happened in a century), Eurobeat is confirmed for MF Ghost, and Cartoon Saloon is moving forward with Julián!
