The holiday season is coming to an end, but if you're itching for more, ring in the new year with some Life Day leftovers, as we review the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special! Can a Star Wars Holiday Special succeed without a singing Bea Arthur? Listen and find out! We also talk about some of the recent announcements from Disney about upcoming Star Wars content.


It's time again for the annual Cheerful Ghost Radio Ho-Ho-Holiday Special!

We talk about what we've been playing and watching, the recent console launches, and the stuff we might hope to find under the tree this year.



Happy DOOMsgiving! In this episode, we talk about the impact of DOOM, one of the greatest and most notorious games ever created, and review it's first episode titled "Knee-Deep in the Dead."


In this spooky episode of Dreadful Ghost Radio, Timogorgon, Travis BOOman, and Jon DEADson take a time out from the real world horror that is 2020 to discuss some of our favorite horror movies and Halloween traditions, after talking about what we've been playing and watching over the past few weeks.


Welcome back! It's been a minute. In this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio we dive into all the things we have been playing and watching, and talk about a few positive things that have happened. You don't want to miss Tim's murder squirrel story.

In what may be the biggest gaming deal ever, Microsoft has purchased Zenimax for $7.5 Billion. That's almost twice what Disney paid for Star Wars, just to put that in perspective.

This means they now own Bethesda Softworks, Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, and Roundhouse Studios.

This gives Microsoft a huge swath of exclusives going forward. While they've said they're excited to bring these games to Xbox and PC, they haven't specifically said that new games from these studios won't come to PS5, but it's very doubtful they'd pay $7.5 billion and keep making games for their competitors. While they're now ironically publishing a few timed Sony exclusives, it's a fairly safe assumption that when the Elder Scrolls 6 finally releases, for example, it'll be Xbox and PC exclusive. In, y'know, 2035.

I really only want to play most of the games that this acquisition affects on PC, so this isn't a huge hit for me, but this definitely cuts into the argument that Sony has the best exclusives. Right now, they definitely do, but give it a couple years and things will change.

What's most surprising about all of this honestly, is that it didn't leak. Nobody was talking about this at all.

In this episode we're dusting off our favorite old consoles as we take a trip back to the early days of gaming, in our review of Netflix's new documentary series, High Score. For this review, we covered the first 4 episodes.

Tale of the White Wyvern Season 3: The Wyvern Race is now open! In this season, we're changing up the goals a bit. This time, it's a race to see who can get three Wyvern kills first. Once that threshold is met, the season will end and the leaderboards will be filled out.

To help speed this up a bit, we're also increasing the number of forest fights and PvP fights, as well as giving you a bonus to experience gain and gold find.

Come join the race, whether you plan to be competitive or just want to play a second game!
