Do you see that? That's a drill mount. This is the coolest thing I've seen so far coming up in 1.3

Recently the developers at Relogic have been dropping some hints at what we can expect from 1.3. Check out the full post here

I setup a new Steam Curation page with a few games I recommend people check out. In the future I plan on migrating awesome Steam game reviews to the page. So if you have been itching to review a cool Steam game, post it to the site and let me know about it and it may be featured on our Steam Curation page.

"Now it’s easy to listen to your music collection while you play games on Steam.

Point Steam to the MP3s on your computer, then browse your collection of albums and artists. You’ll also find your Steam Soundtracks DLC in your Steam Music library when the associated base game is installed. Listen to albums, queue up mixes, and create playlists you love, right in your Steam library. Best of all, it’s all available right within the Steam Overlay, so you can control playback without leaving your game. The Steam Music library and player consist of all the basics you need to enjoy your music without switching tasks.

Steam Music has finally shipped and it's available to anyone that recently... [Read All]

Warcraft 4
Hopefully it's not a secret to most of you that back in the day, I had a thing for Warcraft 3. I loved the strategic elements, the heroes and it's non-starcraft pacing. At University I played it a lot with friends and when DoTA hit, played that as well. I generally played as the Undead or Orcs and had a pretty good build that could stand up well in a fight.

After World of Warcraft released and quickly became one of the most popular games ever, I figured that it wouldn't be too long until Warcraft 4 was released. After Starcraft 2 was announced I lost hope in a Warcraft 4 release as it didn't make sense for Blizzard to push two strategy games at once.

That said, I imagine we are a year or so... [Read All]

Doom 3
"The basic goal is to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine with all the engine eye candy ID Software has provided us with so we can recreate the game for a classic Doom player to remember and enjoy the memories of the classics in a modernized way, but keeping the old Doom spirit well in the game."

The Doom Reborn project has just released a pre-beta version for testing so if you are interested in heading back to the original game with an updated skin, check it out.

I'll be watching this pretty closely as loved other fan recreation projects of old games like Black Mesa and Diablo Mortal Shroud.

It looks like the Oculus is getting closer and closer to being released. There's a lot in this article, so I won't copy and paste much of it.

I'm not sure if I'm thrilled with the thought of buying a VR headset from a company like FB, but really all corporations are going to be the same. Watching your habits and trying to make money off you.

That said, it would be awesome to have a Cheerful Ghost Virtual Hangout!
Cannon Brawl
Two years ago I played Cannon Brawl at PAX Prime. I liked what I played so much I bought it and have since been waiting for it to hit 1.0. Since when I originally bought it till now Turtle Sandbox Games(the creators of Cannon Brawl) have ported it to Mac and Linux and added a lot of new features to it. If you are looking for a fun couch/internet co-op strategy game you can pick up and play with a friend you should checkout Cannon Brawl. Cannon Brawl also features a interesting story mode that is worth checking out too.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
I wasn't all that excited about Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel until this video, honestly. It seemed like a filler game between last gen and current gen, for the most part. But Mr. Torgue is the cure for what ails you. Not just Torgue, but the info in this video makes me far more excited than I was. The news that this is coming to Linux in addition to all the other common platforms is certainly another point in its favor. But rather than just a cash-grab while working on their current-gen titles, this seems to add quite a bit to the Borderlands formula. What do you think?

The Bountiful Update

Minecraft
On 9/2/14, Minecraft was updated to version 1.8. This update is called the "Bountiful Update." It contains many new features and improvements. For a detailed description of the new update, please see the wiki (http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/1.8). In the meantime, there are a few changes that I wish to report, I may even save one of the best things for very last.

Four of the new blocks that have been added to the game include andesite, diorite, granite, and slime blocks. The first three, in that list, are new rocks which can be crafted into "polished" versions. Andesite and diorite look similar to gravel and cobblestone, while granite looks almost like dirt. All three are very abundant and... [Read All]

JJ Abrams production company Bad Robot released a on set teaser video for the Millenium Falcon appearing in Star Wars VII. Take a turn for the awesome at is features a porthole covered with the Batmobile.

Seriously..
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
"Think About It, how much would a rupee from the Legend of Zelda be worth in real life?"

YouTube sensation Dylan Dubeau answers the question "How much are Zelda Rupees worth" in a really interesting way. He figures out how much they are worth by comparing Zelda items to items for sale in the US then how much the actual value of the gems would be worth.

Spoiler alert, the actual gem value would be quite a lot of money.

After taking a break, the Cheerful Ghost Roundtable is back on the air. Since we have spent so much time away, this episode is a bit different and contains a few more technical glitches than usual.

We break into song and dance talking about what we've been playing since the last Roundtable as well as the new that Microsoft purchased Mojang for 2.5 billion dollars. With all the negativity surrounding the recent #gamergate controversy we talk about what positive influences games have had on our lives.

Super Mario Galaxy
Since her debut in Super Mario Galaxy, Princess Rosalina is showing up in EVERYTHING...even the nwe Super Smash Bros for the Wii U! But really, WHO IS SHE?

The answer will change EVERYTHING you thought you knew about the Super Mario franchise...


I've not actually played much of Mario Galaxy, but as far as Mario lore goes, this video and it's Part 2 is definitely worth watching! There's genetic, story lore and physics evidence shown to make some amazing theories about the relationships in the Mario universe.

Enjoy!

Starting with the The Brown Box in 1967 to the current generation of consoles this infographic covers each important gaming console to be released.

I wonder if Valve's "Orange Box" release is a nod to The Brown Box console?

Super World Karts
"Super World Karts is a retro mode-7 style 16-bit kart racer, being created by solo indie developer Paul Hamilton (One Legged Seagull) in Australia. It looks and plays like a classic '90s karts game, but also adds some modern game elements like:


  • 16:9 - 1080p HD resolution at 60 fps, (where available)

  • achievements & collection goals,

  • drift-boosts & analogue steering,

  • character & track unlocks,

  • original fun split-screen Battle modes,

  • and 3 star rankings for each race.


Creating a great PC based Kart game has been something I have been waiting for for a long time. Super World Karts seems like it delivers on that SNES Mario Kart styled game and is coming to the PC, Mac & Ouya.
