Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about our RTMP streaming setup. It involves an nginx server, three OBS instances, but not this pile of garbage.

Tonight on GeekNights, we review two new-to-us tabletop games we played at PAX in First Look: No Return: Es gibt kein Zurück! (2019) and Square on Sale (2005). The former is distilled game mechanic. The latter is... interesting, but heuristically a mess. In the news, for the first time in over 15 years GeekNights was recorded remotely (so let us kn…

Join guides editor Matthew Reynolds (twitter.com/Crazyreyn), guides writer Lottie Lynn (twitter.com/StormScribe), and our tech team's Thomas M…

Randomizers were not foreseen, and they will likely have a significant impact on game design and esports in the years to come. In the news, Facebook and Sony pull out of PAX East and GDC due to Coronavirus, the mayor of Bost…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the latest animated film from Science Saru, Masaaki Yuasa's Ride Your Wave (きみと、波にのれたら). It's exactly what it looks like, but masterfully executed and definitely worth watching. Its themes overlap heavily with Lu Over the Wall, using water as metaphor for death and/or transformation. In the news, another water-based…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the extremely elegant Rumble Nation (天下鳴動). It's shockingly deep for how quick it plays, with some nods to both El Grande and Settlers of Catan (but not in the ways you might imagine). In the news, Scott remembered that Camp Hyrule existed, awesome hackers are dropping extremely aggressive two-headed skeletons into …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Makoto Shinkai's latest movie Weathering With You. It's beautiful, but its themes are muddled.

In the news, Queens bus route meetings at…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Time of Crisis: The Roman Empire in Turmoil, 235-284 AD (2017). It's a deckbuilder wargame that basically functions as a highly abstracted rondel. We like it. In the news, Blizzard is getting better at classic CTF, Rocket League drops 0.3% of its active playerbase, Pokemon Bank will be free for a month while you get…
 
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 i…
 
What makes a good Double-A game? You know, the games that might not have had the biggest budgets or the best marketing, but which still made your life a bit brighter with their gimmicks and sense of simple fun.We've been looking at Double-A games over the last few months with our new-ish feature series, and we wanted to delve into more about what m…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new hotness we played at PAX Unplugged's First Look, Yusuke Matsumoto's Nokosu Dice.

In the news, Old Man Scott doesn't want you to listen to GeekNights, Fa…
