Uhhh testing, testing. Is this thing on? Is this... are we doing a new episode? Has it been a year? Are we really bad at this?

As it turns out, the answer is yes to all of the above. Come hang out with us as we catch up on our lives and share the media that has gotten us through the past year!

Ars Technica has an exclusive preview of what may come with the SteamPal, but in short, imagine the GPD Win types of handheld PCs, but with docking capability similar to the Switch and Steam Controller features.

It currently appears to be targeting Linux, which makes sense considering how much work Valve has put into its Wine distribution, Proton, making gaming on Linux *far* easier than it has ever been.

I hope there are some high end and low end entry points for this, as I could imagine using it for Steam Remote Play Anywhere, sitting in my car at lunch playing some games streamed from my PC at home, or as a full-on powerful device in its own right.

While I'm glad the technology in the Steam Controller is still being used, I'm still bummed that we only got the initial release and that they were canceled. I would have loved to have seen the evolution of that design. Maybe that's coming too! It's Valve, so it's hard to tell.

We're gearing up for more episodes of Cheerful Ghost Radio, but while those new episodes are baking in the oven, we've done some spring cleaning and found this old episode in the couch cushions. The Nintendo Switch just turned four in March, and we recorded this never before heard episode last year about our opinions of the Switch after *three* years. Listen back to our thoughts on the Switch without the past year to inform us, and also hear which things we wanted back then that we got!


We are mere hours away from more Wandavision! Prepare yourself by joining us for our thoughts on the first half, and thoughts on what's to come! We also talk about some other Marvel TV properties and how they all fit together, and which ones may stick around in canon.


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.
