Galaxy Express 999 Movie

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider our recent rewatching of the Galaxy Express 999 movie, recently remastered and re-released. Otakon is next weekend, and while we won't be there, Makoto Shinkai and his newest work -- Hoshi o Ou Kodomo -- will be. SDCC is this weekend, it's really, really hot, and Scott's reading Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether.

Small World

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Philippe Keyaerts' Small World, successor to his Vinci. Rym's surprisingly playing a little Team Fortress 2 again (despite it being free to play), Scott Geekbites F.E.A.R., and Capcom might be doing something sinister with hard-locked save slots.

Hipira and Wakfu

Tonight on GeekNights, the cute Hipira and the fun Wakfu. DC Comics is trying digital distribution and a universal relaunch, Kevin Smith is putting on a reality show set in a comic shop, and Foreskin man might be somewhat anti-semitic.

R-Eco and Battle Line

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider two two-player warm-up card games: R-Eco and Battle Line (a remake of Knizia's earlier Schotten-Totten). We also consider our recent CounterStrike play (more to come), the DS Lite price drop, and Activision's coming subscription service for Call of Duty.

Also, if you're so inclined, take a gander at our good friend's team for the Tri-State Trek to fight ALS.

Hajime no Ippo

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Sprit) anime (directed by Satoshi Nishimura, who you may remember for directing Trigun)! But first, Takashi Miike is supposedly directing the Phoenix Wright movie, The Big Apple Comic Con had some lackluster press, lost a minor guest due to alleged child pornography charges, and saw the expanding Earth swallow up some of Neal Adams original work.

Total Recall

Tonight, get your aaasss to maaahs with the 90s classic Total Recall. But first, a brave man who fights the tides of Internet comments, a brave man shooting the moon on some Middle Eastern foreign policy, and some manufactured outrage.

Portal 2

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Portal 2. (Hint: there is no reason not to buy this game). We also consider Sony's egregiously inept IT, and Nintendo's egregiously unrealized potential as they move from the Wii to the double Wii with Project Cafe.
