    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider a number of upcoming animated movies and shows we're looking forward to (and in some cases looking forward to more of). In the news, Studio Ghibli's Earwig and the Witch came out to deeply scathing reviews despite no one talking about how low-budget of an affair it actually was, a bunch of shows are coming to Crunchyroll, Mamoru Hosoda's BELLE has a teaser trailer, and Disney is shutting down Blue Sky, killing the previously upcoming Nimona movie.

  • GeekNights 20210211 - Calendars

    GeekNights 20210211 - Calendars


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of calendars. There was a time when people had physical ones made of paper. Weird right? In the news, Scott's sort of into Rubik's Cubes, you should honestly watch the impeachment of Donald Trump, hackers used TeamViewer to attempt the poisoning of an entire Florida town, Gina Carano is rightly dropped from Star Wars, and New York is killing people by allowing sports to have live audiences.

  • GeekNights 20210209 - Asynchronous Play

    GeekNights 20210209 - Asynchronous Play


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider asynchronous play in games. It's an underserved niche in games that is especially relevant during the quarantine times. In the news, Counter-Strike is over 20 years old, hackers attacked CD Projekt Red (but at least they had backups), Battleborn is dead and gone, and Gearbox was purchased in the ever-increasing consolidation of the games industry.

  • GeekNights 20210203 - Lupin III: The First

    GeekNights 20210203 - Lupin III: The First

  • GeekNights 20210126 - Hades

    GeekNights 20210126 - Hades


    Tonight on GeekNights, we review Hades. It's great, and exhibits a level of polish that is honestly rare.

    GeekNights 20210112 - NERTS! Online


    Tonight on GeekNights, we review the latest (free-to-play) from Zachtronics with NERTS! Online. It's a live online implementation of the classic card game Nerts, and is worth your while. In the news, a Republican mob led by disgraced president Donald Trump stormed the capitol in an ongoing coup attempt. Twitch rightly removes the PogChamp emote after the person it's based on supported this coup. Twitch replaced the PogChamp with a very cool idea that also reminded us just how racist gamers are. Thankfully, the first new PogChamp is a champ. LucasArts is basically back with LucasFilm Games, and they have announced a nazi-fighting game that we're all excited about. We also have a trailer for Bowser's Fury.

Tabletop games, role playing games, video games, console games, PC games: we are living in an explosive and amazing era of gaming. In the news, the Star Wars Squadrons patch made the game significantly more fun, Graveyard Keeper is all right, and the Overwatch winter brawls are particularly good. Check out freeze tag with an eye to the game design going on there.

    Tonight on GeekNights, we celebrate the end of the year and the end of the decade and talk about the last 10 years of Comics and Animation (2010-2020). This is in many ways a golden age of animation, and we expect it to continue. Adventure Time kind of started it all, and ran for the entire decade! In the news, Sony buys Crunchyroll from AT&T, and superhero comics are a tiny fraction of comic sales.

In the news, Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky launch with, among other problems, egregious safety issues, worker exploitation, abysmal performance on previous-generation consoles, and more. A bunch of indie titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch, including Among Us, as well as a Funimation anime streaming app.

  • GeekNights 20201207 - Technology Longevity

    GeekNights 20201207 - Technology Longevity


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the longevity of technology. From computers to bikes, proper maintenance can greatly extend the life the right tool, though some more easily than others. We've talked about computer maintenance specifically before in 2006 and then in 2020.In the news, Apple may be working on a 32-core processor, Pornhub runs into trouble with its payment processing, the Arecibo Telescope is sadly no more, and the devil cars sell their self-driving unit.

  • GeekNights 20201203 - Hair

    GeekNights 20201203 - Hair


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider hair. We did a show once on shaving back in 2005, when we first switched to safety razors, but we never talked about head hair more generally. Yes, this is a Thursday. How could you tell? In the news, Scott's doing the Advent of Code, check out the Floppy Emu Model C, the movie industry just changed forever, and we found the rocket booster we lost in the 60s. Also, Joe Biden won the presidency by a historic and growing margin.

  • GeekNights 20201201 - 1817

    GeekNights 20201201 - 1817


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what is likely now our favorite 18xx train game: 1817. If you have never played one of these before, you may want to check out our reviews of 1846: The Race for the Midwest or 1889: History of Shikoku Railways first. 1817 has short selling, acquisitions & mergers, and loans (with interest) that together serve to provide more player agency than other 18xx games we've played.In the news, Nintendo makes it easier to share screenshots from the Switch, and the Super Mario Maker levels will disappear like tears in the rain.

  • GeekNights 20201125 - Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian

    GeekNights 20201125 - Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the second installment in Adventure Time: Distant Lands with Obsidian. In the news, Rym got his Index and finished Deca-Dence, The Art of Wolfwalkers is very good, Funimation adds many Gundams, Venture Brothers is cancelled (but also possibly un-canceled), and the publishing industry needs some antitrust action ASAP.

  • GeekNights 20201123 - Displays

    GeekNights 20201123 - Displays


    Tonight on GeekNights, we consider displays. LCDs, OLEDs, "Smart" TVs, and the current state of the art. We haven't talked about this since 2006, and a lot has changed in 14 years! In the news, we've migrated our 2-Factor Auth to NFC Yubikeys, Comcast is enforcing data caps nationally, the Apple M1 is revolutionary, Fleets are here I guess, and the GIMP is 25 years old and not much better than it was 20 years ago.
