Earl's got some mad swagger.

Lip syncing is so much easier with puppets it turns out!

I found this totally awesome old Genesis promo video for Street Fighter II Special Championship Edition. So much amazing 90's cheese. Plus it's also fun to watch an old take on a classic game the time it came out even if it's from the horses mouth.

PSA: If you're tried one of the free weekends and liked what you saw, but you were waiting for it to be really, incredibly cheap, now is your opportunity.


$10 for regular, $15 for the Deluxe edition. Since there's no monthly subscription, this is as close to totally free as it's likely to get.

Blizzard sent me a few Heroes of the Storm beta keys and I have a few left and wanted to give them to anyone that wanted one. Drop your request in the comments and i'll send you a site message with the key.

Hello, my fellow Cheerful Ghosts. I just thought of a new discussion topic, that I think could generate some dialogue. I want to know what your thoughts are on Early Access games.

Things are much better now, even if the article outlines how imperfect Linux gaming is.



Can't wait! Although shining light directly in to my eyes sounds unhealthy....but I am willing to give it a try to ride a dragon or fight orcs!!

This video makes sense and makes the game look pretty deep.
What do you think?

I'd like to see what you think about game difficulty. How hard or easy to you like your games? Do you like being able to adjust the difficulty level? Do you like a challenge?

I've been thinking about this in recent months because of I've been playing Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros. (Wii U). Honestly, when I'm playing a game, I want to have fun, that is my priority. I want to enjoy my gaming experience. However, there are many games that offer challenges, some of which can be down right frustrating. Sometimes, I get really frustrated and therefore have to take a break from the game to calm down and relax a bit. Sometimes, I just have to search the Web for strategies and... Read All
