GeekNights Tuesday - No Return and Square on Sale

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 know if the audio sounds weird), Rym is building an annoy-o-tron, Segata Sanshiro appears to have risen from the grave, Pistol Whip is a VR rhythm rail shooter, and Half-Life Alyx is out!

You did a remote episode when Scott first moved to Queens but Rum was still in Beacon.

I forgot about that entirely! That was… 2009.

Anecdotally, Pistol Whip was the second most popular freeplay game at PAX East VR, after Beat Saber. It certainly drew more comments; it’s a very visually arresting game.

At this point I feel like luke could be the official historian

This is what I remember instead of people’s names.

Segata Sanshiro has been replaced by a much younger Segashiro.
