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 …

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Hypnospace Outlaw (2019). It's a true sendup to the early Internet, and is definitely worth playing. 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 …

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…

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 w…
 
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 p…

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…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Ricochet Half-Life mod from twenty years ago. It's still playable! And we're playing it semi-regularly again.

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the recent Deca-Dence anime. (Don't worry: no spoilers). Don't read anything about it until you watch it. It takes... a turn. We Judged that this show was probably OK, but wouldn't be in a rush to check it out unless people started talking about it. And talk they did. In the news, Katsucon 2021 is cancelled, Beastar…

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the ever-present Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Among Us. It's a social deduction game, but with intrinsic mechanics and surprising depth. In the news, there are unconfirmed reports (now officially debunked) that PAX South has delayed to February 19-21 (which would still be too early to safely attend any convention), and Twitch is trying to milk more money from a…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Star Wars: Squadrons. It's great. It lacks some polish, but the gameplay is sound, the game is solid, and it's almost definitely worth your while.

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider ThunderCats (1985). A big part of both our childhoods, it was probably the strongest of the 80s animated tv shows for kids in America. It also featured Snarf-Ra. In the news, Rym dug out his ancient joystick, Lupin III: The First is in theaters (but don't go to one), and The Owl House is a fantastic kids' show.…
