Jqspmp6 General Discussion

Released on February 28, 2012 by Cheerful Ghost

Developed by Cheerful Ghost

The place for conversation that doesn't make sense to talk about in any specific game in our list. Think of General Discussion as a "catch all" for conversations about gaming, game culture or anything else worth sharing.

And this is what we're seeing for the most part!

It always happens like this for the first few hours, so it's best to give it a while.

This time around they've brought back the trading cards as a reward for going through your queue. Much like the most recent sales, every game that will be on sale is already on sale, for as low as it will go. There's no need to wait until the end to see if the game you want will get cheaper.

Is there anything you've been wanting to snag?

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Oh, they're starting right in with the new Zelda. This game looks gorgeous. Easily the prettiest I've seen on the Wii U. It's somewhat cel shaded, like Wind Waker, but much more detailed. MUCH. Looks like you can climb trees, cook, and interact with the environment way more. Link has a new hang glider trick with his poncho.

Here's the trailer they showed: https://youtu.be/1rPxiXXxftE

Reggie is out talking. A "seamless Hyrule." Sounds open world without loading screens. It looks like Nintendo's first day is almost all about Zelda. But he has one other thing to pitch first.

Pokémon Sun and Moon
Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio are... Read All

So I'm doing this one as a stream of consciousness basically because that's more fun. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it. I added some titles in after the text because I wasn't sure what they were at first, so it might seem weird sometimes when you just read what the game was, but then I'm surprised by it.

Sony has a pit orchestra. Nobody else has had a pit orchestra. Whatever they're playing is great. Now there's a woman making strange mouth noises and playing a big drum. Still a great piece though.

OH SHIT IT'S GOD OF WAR! BUT KRATOS IS OLD AND BEARDED! HE SURVIVED! And he has a son, who he's trying to train.

This is the first one of these I'm writing while watching the conference. I don't know why I didn't think to do that earlier :D

Aisha Tyler is amazing. Ubisoft couldn't have found a better host. So far it's the only conference in which the f-bomb was dropped in the first five minutes.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Releasing in March 2017. This game looks absolutely beautiful. But I can't really comment much on whether it looks good because I've never played a Clancy game, but to my uneducated eyes it looks like a great addition. It looks highly strategic. It supports solo play or up to four-player co-op.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Get it? It sounds like... Read All

Microsoft, as always, had quite a bit to say. Here's the gist!

Xbox Hardware and Xbox Live

  • Xbox One S: A slimmer version of the Xbox One, launching in August for $300.

  • Project Scorpio: A totally new console from Microsoft, coming in 2017. It's capable of 4K gaming. Microsoft says this is the first step toward their plans for incremental console upgrades. New consoles will be able to play older games, older consoles will be able to play new games, but at lower quality.

  • Custom controllers: Microsoft is launching a Design-your-own controller service, with 8 million possible combinations.

  • Xbox Play Anywhere: A program that lets you buy a game once and play it on... Read All

By now I’m sure you’ve all heard about the tragic shooting in Orlando yesterday. It’s the largest mass shooting in US history. Such a senseless act of violence caused by fear and lack of understanding. Our thoughts are with the victims’ families and friends today.

To those who lost someone in this attack, please know you are not alone. We can’t imagine what you’re going through right now, but we’re mourning with you.

This event will become politicized (and that’s already started), but that’s not what this post is about, and we ask you not to do so in the comments. There are political ramifications and those need to be discussed, but not now. For now, we... Read All

Bethesda's second E3 conference wasn't quite as eventful as its first, but it was close.

Wolfenstein: New Colossus? maybe: Before the footage even started, a DOS style directory was shown with an entry called New_Colossus, which is a poem that B.J. quotes in Wolfenstein: The New Order. Is this a tease for a new game or just a tease?

Quake Champions: Quake is back! As of right now it looks like a "continuation", so to speak, of Quake III Arena. It's a classic style arena shooter, but it looks like classes are coming to it which could work well for the game if it's balanced properly. I'm... Read All

E3 2016 is underway, and EA started things off yesterday in their own event called EA Play. There are some biggies here.

Titanfall 2: The sequel to Titanfall will be out October 28, and this time there's a single-player mode!

Fifa 17: The world's most popular sports game is getting some love. There's a storyline that you can progress on and off the football pitch. You play as Alex Hunter, a new English Premier League player trying to make a name for himself.

Mass Effect: Andromeda: This is what I was most interested in. Information was still a bit sparse. The Mako is back, and it at least appears to handle better. But what I got out of it the most: This game... Read All

As Summer is now in full swing I am wondering what everyone is playing right now?

I play Hearthstone daily and am currently saving gold for the next 4 wings of the upcoming adventure. I'm also playing FTL, the new Doom and a iOS game called Gem Hunters.

Let me know in the comments what you are playing as well and if it's worth looking into!

Today, GOG is rolling out a new feature that will definitely make its platform more useful to many, including myself.

The premise is simple: Connect your Steam account to your GOG account, and any supported games that you have on Steam will be unlocked on your GOG library.

Naturally, this depends on various publisher agreements and things like that, so it won't just unlock everything you have. But the list of supported games will change over time and more games will unlock.

It looks like this process will more than double the size of my GOG library, but they're having some technical issues at the moment, I imagine because of everyone hitting them hard after... Read All

Metal Jesus is a retro game YouTuber I follow and he published a video some time ago I felt was really important to anyone looking at creating gameplay videos. He goes over all of the methods he uses to capture gameplay footage on old analog video port consoles, modern HDMI based consoles and PC's.

Travis and I haven't been resting after we launched a new site revamp a couple weeks back and this evening we are launching a cool new top level feature called Giveaways. Giveaways are game contests that we will be running every now and again any registered Cheerful Ghost user can enter or run. If you see a game you want to win, click to join and you will be entered in the contest to be randomly selected to win!

It's also great in that anyone on the site can create a game giveaway for (mostly) and kind of digital game. If you have a few bundle keys or extra copies laying around your Steam inventory you can create a Giveaway contest! Giveaways work in... Read All

Welcome to the new and improved Cheerful Ghost! Jon was looking for a more modern theme for the site, and I was happy to do it, partly because I had seen some things over the years that could be improved, and partly because I needed a client for one of my classes.

This has been an amazingly fun project, probably the most fun I’ve had on a site design yet. I’m very familiar with the site so I was able to envision ways to make some things work more smoothly, and design things to not get in the way of the reader. My chief goals were to modernize the site styles and make it look less like a Bootstrap theme.

Jon’s goals for the redesign were (again) to modernize... Read All

Metal Jesus is a retro video game collector I follow on YouTube and I wanted to feature his latest video on Pinball machines. This video is special in that it features Chuck, a local Portland pinball collector and retro game vendor involved in the Portland Retro Game Expo. This year I won a raffle for the Arcade Cabinet Zero Point and Chuck was the one that delivered it to my house, which was really cool of him.

If you are looking to learn more about the different version of Pinball machines over the years and some of the more popular tables you need to check this video out.
