Batman: The Animated Series

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the all-time classic Batman: The Animated Series. We talked in ancient times about the tv shows of our youth in a general sense, but BTAS is important enough to warrant its own episode! In the news, Weathering With You is worth seeing, Ride Your Wave continues the unstoppable Masaaki Yuasa train, Saint Young Men is coming to English audiences, and The Dragon Prince was good to the end!

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.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1966 Peanuts television special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. From an exploration of PTSD and the horrors of war to the inherent fanaticism of religion, it has some surprisingly nuanced elements. In the news, Makoto Shinkai's Weathering Skis will be in American theaters, but you can see it early at Anime NYC, and Disenchantment season 2 is surprisingly good!

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.

Promare (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Studio Trigger's first theatrical animated film: Promare. Go see it. It makes Redline look positively tame. It's Studio Trigger: The Anime.

In the news, the Lupin III CG trailer looks hot, Carole & Tuesday is utterly fantastic so far, Rie Kugimiya will be a guest at Anime NYC, and the Vic thing is basically over. We've also reviewed a lot of anime over the last 15 or so years of GeekNights. So, here are just the reviews, without the other stuff, on youtube and Patreon! We'll try to get a new one up every week.
