Tonight on GeekNights, we consider scanners. Ancient devices used to convert paper documents and photos into files on computers, often using something called TWAIN. For many consumers, they have been replaced by "smart phones." In the news, NVIDIA releases open source GPU drivers, hell has frozen over, Russia appears to have lost custody of a relat…
 
Weekly recaps the week on Eurogamer for you. We look at the notable news, reviews, features and videos you might have missed. Don't have time? Don't worry, we've got your back. Weekly is hosted by Eurogamer veteran Bertie Purchese and features a rotating roster assembled from the Eurogamer team and beyond. Supporters of the Eurogamer website get th…
 
Newscast is a weekly show in which the Eurogamer news team pick apart the major talking points in news that week. This week, we're talking about FIFA - or from next year, EA Sports FC. The breakup of FIFA and EA has sparked numerous headlines this week, as both sides have claimed the deal is good for them. But behind all the bluster, what do we thi…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the fascinating art project x portable game console: Playdate. It's neat. In the news, the contest for Lord Stanley's Cup is underway, EA Sports loses FIFA, Bethesda finishes off their PC game launcher, Square Enix continues its long fall from grace by doubling down on a scam, Embracer is embracing a gaming empire…

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider tech debt. Where it comes from, what it means, and what you can do about it. Rym's made a career of owning and addressing the tech debt of legacy systems, and there aren't really "correct" answers here. In the news, Microsoft is offering an Edge VPN, Ukrainian drones are shockingly effective against the Russian Na…
 
A publisher perspective: we haven't had one of those before, and it's an area of pivotal importance in games people often have misconceptions about. How does it all work, from spotting a game to signing it, to marshalling it out of the door? And whose side are publishers on? My guest today started their own label five years ago in the hope of doing…
 
Danny O'Dwyer creates video game documentaries for Noclip, a crowdfunded YouTube channel first launched in 2016. Known for their high production value and behind-the-scenes access to some of the most successful game developers in the world, Noclip has had a huge influence on PMG's work over the years. Prior to starting his own company, Danny is per…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Tatsuki Fujimoto's one-shot manga Goodbye, Eri. It's 200 pages long, and it's absolutely worth reading. Especially starting at page 18. In the news, the YAOI Paddle resurrection was thankfully short-lived, AnimeNEXT has to cancel for a very good reason, Anime Expo's twitter was hacked by NFT scammers, Delicious in D…
 
There is, perhaps, no department in video game journalism so pressured as reviews. It's long been a pivotal part of what Eurogamer and many other outlets offer: a critical opinion on whatever the latest game is. Without reviews, the industry would look very different. What would we argue about? It's into this position of responsibility Chris Tapsel…
 
Tonight on the GeekNights Book Club, we review and discuss N.K. Jemisin's fantastic The City We Became. It's a book about New York. And about cities. The City We Became is a 2020 urban fantasy novel by N. K. Jemisin. Taking place in New York City (a setting in which we are heavily invested), the City itself is in peril in a world where great cities…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we revisit the topic of hosting we last covered in 2006. From simple web hosting to SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and even Iaas (Infrastructure as a Service), a lot has changed. Amazon EC2 didn't even exist when we did that first episode. In the news, Vimeo moves further into B2B, Twitch pauses it…
 
It's all going on for Greg Buchanan. His still-warm thriller novel Sixteen Horses looks destined to become one of the books of the year, having filled window displays at Waterstones stores around the UK for the paperback launch in February. I've read it and it's brilliant; dark, disturbing, fearsomely intelligent and utterly compelling. I couldn't …
 
Lucy James is the head of GameSpot's video team, managing a team of hosts around the world. Having moved from London to San Francisco, you'll have likely seen her face on all sorts of GameSpot video stuff, as well as her more recent appearances on Giant Bomb's The Very Online Show. In this episode we talk about the differences between the UK and US…
 
It was during a lecture they probably should have been listening to that Sara Thompson doodled the Dungeons & Dragons Combat Wheelchair on the back of a textbook. They'd been talking about it for a while, the wheelchair, irked by a game that offered players limitless freedom to be whoever they wanted but still struggled to fully represent them. So …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Saint Patrick's Day (the holiday). We have a fraught history with it, frankly. In the news, Scott is trying out Obsidian, Daylight Saving Time is likely going to be permanent in the US (for the second time) much to the surprise of some of the senators who made it happen, and New York governor Hochul continues to be …
 
I've had a soft spot for Inkle ever since playing Sorcery! on my old banger of an iPhone many years ago, and I've been delighted by every single game it has made since. Games like 80 Days, Heaven's Vault, Overboard! and Pendragon - games that wield words masterfully. And I cannot wait for the studio's new game A Highland Song that was revealed prop…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Offworld Trading Company. An RTS with a M.U.L.E. lineage, we're having fun with it and even playing some multiplayer. In the news, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are coming, and the Playdate has a nice dev kit. In much more somber and tragic news, since the last episode we made, Russia has invaded Ukraine in what can on…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mamoru Hosoda's Belle. A beautiful film that deals with the disconnect (or the lack thereof) between the online and the real, we have previously reviewed Hosoda's Mirai, The Boy and the Beast, Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and One Piece 6: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island. In the news, Amazon has ruined Comixology…
 
Aoife is our queen of video. She helped imagine what video could be for Eurogamer eight years ago, and she's worked to define it ever since. If you've ever seen a Eurogamer video on YouTube, there's a whopping great chance she's in it. But what is life really like in that role, in the public eye? To see her and the video team surrounded by fans at …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring you the GeekNights Book Club: The Tale of Genji part 1. We have a lot to say, so we're splitting this one in two. The first episode covers our reactions to the work as fiction. This second episode covers the meta, structure, history, and anything else we had to say. For those interested, the next book club book will …
 
I was hoping they'd be funny in real-life, because their games are, and I'm absolutely delighted to say they are. I'm still genuinely warmed that they're best friends in real-life and have been since school. I'd hoped as much - it's why I asked them to be on the Podcast together (the first double-header!) - but I didn't realise how fundamental to e…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring you the GeekNights Book Club: The Tale of Genji part 1. We have a lot to say, so we're splitting this one in two. This first episode covers our reactions to the work as fiction. We'll save some of the meta conversation for a followup episode to come. You can use this handy chart to follow along. For those interested,…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider anime music, particularly tv shows and OAVs. A good OST has more than just a rockin' opener or closer, it both enhances the show and stands alone. We cover some of the greatest, including Giant Robo, Initial D, Vision of Escaflowne, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Cowboy Bebop, and more. In the news, the under-appreciat…
 
Our Game of the Year 2021 was a surprise for some of you, I'm sure. It was - and is - a game that found a powerful new way to tell a story. A game that invited our lives and experiences by hiding the subject of its story. It's a simple game, a game about unpacking boxes, and it was inspired when co-creators Wren Brier and Tim Dawson did exactly tha…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Greeting Cards and other cards of this ilk. In the news, the Doomsday Clock is 100 seconds to midnight, the handful of people "buying" NFTs are not that invested in them, and the Democrats in the US Senate forced a vote to protect voting rights that failed due to the undemocratic and broken nature of American Demo…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Inscryption. It's worth the price of admission even if you don't know that it pulls a Frog Fractions. In the news, Rym beat Zelda II again for some reason, and Microsoft is acquiring Activision Blizzard for ~$70BB. Also remember to aggressively confront any company that even hints at supporting NFTs in any capacity.…

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about package managers. We've covered Linux package management specifically in the ancient past. In the news, Rym's gonna do the Tunnel Run once it's safe to travel again, Europe has better vaccination policies than the US, Canon reminds you that the chips in their printer ink cartridges are unnecessary, Zynga was wor…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the science and the art of Sports Commentating. In the news, legendary sports commentator John Madden has died, The New York Times is buying The Athletic, a sports commentator made a terrible mistake that is somehow distantly related to this ridiculous nonsense, and United States President Joe Biden calls out the …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Lost Ruins of Arnak (2020). It's an elegant worker placement deckbuilder. We like it. In the news, COVID-19 is again an extreme crisis (please don't go to MAGFest this coming weekend), Square Enix made a repugnant New Year's statement, Kickstarter is dead, and the fake high school was indeed fake.…

Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Summit of the Gods (Le sommet des dieux). Directed by Patrick Imbert, it's a French adaptation of a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Jiro Taniguchi. A photojournalist's obsessive quest for the truth about the first expedition to Mt. Everest leads him to search for an esteemed climber who went missing. I…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss software libraries. Most of you are probably too old to remember DLL Hell, but you probably don't want to be proving how square roots are calculated just to calculate them in your program. In the news, Amazon has had multiple outages, the log4j zero-day is a nightmare, and VR is edging into the mainstream with its …
 
Oli Welsh has worked at Eurogamer for 14 years, and led the website as Editor-in-Chief for seven of those. Now, however, he has decided to move on, and embark on a new challenge in his life, which is a wonderful attitude to have. This, then, is my final chance to sit down with Oli before he leaves, to hear about his life and how he came to be in th…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring you our Holiday Animation and Comics Gift Giving Guide 2021! What should you buy for that animation, comics, anime, or manga fan friend of yours? Not Funkopops: they've released something that's just vile in a long line of vile things. Arcane is one of the best cartoons Rym's seen in a long time. Makoto Shinkai's nex…
