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 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…
