Good morning Ghosts! Today is fairly special as we are launching the Cheerful Ghost BBS 1.4 Update: The Desktop Games Pack! This themed game pack is focused on the old school Desktop Games Packs of yore and specifically harkens to the Microsoft Entertainment Packs of the 90's. These three open source games are pretty special and very addictive so brace yourselves!

2048

Designed by Italian web developer Gabriele Cirulli. The game's objective is to slide numbered tiles on a grid to combine them to create a tile with the number 2048. However, one can continue to play the game after reaching the goal, creating tiles with larger numbers.

2048 has been described as very... Read All


Counter-Strike Global Offensive just went free to play with the addition of it's all new Danger Zone Battle Royale mode. So Counter-Strike is going... Fortnite? Well, sort of, Danger Zone is a mode where you jump in to an area and fight it out with everyone else or in a squad but it's at a much smaller scale with each match having a max of 18 players. But much like Fortnite or PUBG, Danger Zone has you collect weapons and items to shoot it out with other players until the last gamer is standing.

As the update went live I downloaded CS GO to give it a shot and found the whole game download process and install to be fairly quick as the game is only about 17 gigs. After... Read All


The folks at Obsidian, the original creators of Fallout and the developers of Fallout: New Vegas (which they're keen to point out in the trailer, for good reason) have a new game coming next year that looks like everything good about Fallout, but in space!

PC Gamer has a good breakdown of what they know. They say it looks like Fallout meets Bioshock meets Firefly and that's a pretty apt comparison.

The big thing for me is the focus on player choice, which I feel Obsidian does very well.

In addition to the trailer, Game Informer has a brief gameplay video that shows the game and makes me want to play it even more. It feels like a modern take on more classic First-Person... Read All


The most important information from this trailer is seeing that the movie release date has been moved from May to April!

**The comments are going to be full of speculation (at least by me lol). I don't know what will be spoilers or not***

I'm a little underwhelmed by the title, but that's only because of all the endless speculation on what it might be.

Watch the trailer and let's discuss theories in the comments!


I don't have time to play each new release in gaming, but in some rare cases I'll make the time and Rage 2 is one of those games I'm gonna make time for. The open world trailer dropped tonight during The Game Awards and I was happy enough to watch it and then nab the link on YouTube to share with you here. The game looks even better than what they previously showed and the artistry shown in how the trailer is cut is superb. My only question is how much like the real game is this? If they can deliver on most of what we see here this game is going to be bloody great.

Oh and the Russo Brothers just came out at The Game Awards making a finger snap joke and delivered the... Read All


Psychonauts 2 is an upcoming game by Double Fine and just today received a new official trailer! Rasputin is back and this time he's not at Summer Camp anymore and much of the game seems to take place in Psychonauts headquarters! The trailer is big on plot mystery which makes the anticipation for the final game all the more fun. One thing I've come to love about Double Fine is the game narratives are always top notch. The last Double Fine game I loved my way through was Broken Age and I felt like the second half was way too obtuse puzzle wise but the story was great and I wanted to finish the game simply to see how things turned out. I wasn't disappointed in Broken... Read All

The second Captain Marvel trailer just dropped on the Internet and I wanted to share it here for you to watch and comment on. Captain Marvel takes place in the 90's as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel heads back to Earth for reasons unknown with some incredible super powers.

MCU Lore Because Why Not?

I'm not gonna pretend i'm the person with the most Marvel knowledge but it seems Captain Marvel's Kree connection is a huge focus on this trailer and I remembered something about the Kree from past MCU films so I looked it up.

Yondu had a line from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 about being enslaved by the Kree.

Yondu: "I was a Kree battle slave for twenty years when Stakar freed... Read All

Will Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard stop Dracula and bring peace? Find out in this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio!

I thought Anodyne was one of the coolest Indie games to come out in 2013 and was happy to hear Anodyne 2 is in development. Recently developers Analgesic Productions have released more details of the game and one big one featured in the linked video above, is the ability to switch between 3D and 2D game modes. The 2D game graphics are in the style of the original game and the 3D looks very reminiscent of early Playstation or Nintendo 64 games.

"Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is coming early 2019 for Windows and Mac OSX. Much like Final Fantasy, there's no need to play Anodyne 1 to understand Anodyne 2's story, but longtime fans will find connections to Anodyne 1! It's also... Read All
