I geek out over superhero movies, and this camera test just dropped for The Batman.

I didn't think we needed another Batman movie... but we probably always will lol.

This is very simple, but looks so rad!


Since speedrunning is often topic on Cheerful Ghost, and we run Speedrunning competitions at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, I figure this is a fitting video :)

It covers the history of speedrunning, from the super old school "demo" days of Doom to the current Games Done Quick.


The first trailer to Black Widow is out!

I'm still a little worried that this will suffer a similar fate as Rogue One and Solo for (prequels where we know the ultimate outcome, thus making the stakes for the main character not as high, because ultimately they live), but I am more excited for this than I thought I would be.

Maybe because I'm in the middle of a Winter Soldier rewatch (as I'm rewatching it, I honestly wonder if I ever actually saw it? It feels like the first time I'm seeing scenes in it lol), but I'm just lately getting into Nat's character. Endgame was sad for her, but wasn't *that* sad to me, but I bet next time I watch Endgame, it'll hit even harder after watching Black Widow.

Enjoy the trailer! It has Hopper in it!


For something completely different, here's a high school dance team, performing the story of Infinity War and Endgame :)

*spoilers for Infinity War and Endgame* lol


A new fan-made scene by FXitinPost of the fight between Vader and Obi-Wan at the end of Star Wars Episode IV.

It's very cool, and I love the emotion of it. Check it out and post your thoughts below!


The Force will be with you, always

I don't have much to say about this, other than it's a fantastic fan-made trailer for all the Star Wars movies!


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!



Blockchains in games sounds like an amazing idea. I kind of love the idea of Cryptokitties, but it does sound like a waste of money. In this video, blockchains are discussed as an actual game mechanic that could be amazing in some type of MMO game. It would obviously take a lot of work for the developer to put out enough content in the game for everyone, but it could work sort of the opposite of the Mordor games. Instead of the enemies growing based on killing you, your individual weapon would grow specific to what you do in the game. Check the youtube video out, it talks about it in more detail :)

(And you can skip ahead about 45 seconds to get to the actual video if you want)

There's been a federal ban on sports gambling (that excluded Nevada), but it was just struck down! This opens the way to any state deciding to make sports betting legal (and therefore taxable), with some states ready to quickly making it legal. As one who follows sports, and plays daily fantasy sports (which for whatever reason isn't considered betting in most states), I'm really looking forward to being able to place legal bets on games. I've tried some questionably legal off shore betting websites, and whilst they're ran well, it's always felt shady.

It's estimated that Americans illegally wager $150 billion a year on sports.
