Discussion Forums

The Cheerful Ghost Forums are the place for any kind of discussion around games, movies or off-topic threads that are not on the main page.

Recently I heard someone (Jay from RedLetterMedia for those that care) talk about how he listens to a type of music called Synthwave. I looked it up and found out that I really like it. It's been around for a while, and you might recognize if from movies and video games such as Drive and Hotline Miami.

From Wikipedia:
Musically, synthwave is heavily inspired by new wave and the soundtracks of many 1980s films, videogames, cartoons and television shows. Composers such as John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream are frequently cited as influences. The style is mainly instrumental, and often contain 80s cliché elements in the sound such as electronic drums, gated reverb, analog... Read All

Since I visit GameFAQs.com every day to participate in the daily poll, I also tend to check out the latest in video gaming news. When I see something interesting, I like to share it here with you. Today, I found an interesting news piece about Jimmy Kimmel posting a video about the "avalanche" of backlash he received from gamers about a joke he recently made.

It was probably a few days ago that I saw that Jimmy Kimmel said, "[t]o me, watching another person play video games is like going to a restaurant and having someone eat your food for you." Although I mostly disagree with his statement, I think it's funny. It's obvious that a lot of the gaming community doesn't... Read All

Just a funny picture :)

Disney/ILM is researching new forms of entertainment with VR and it's pretty interesting to see how they utilize the hardware. The thought of a VR Star Wars film is interesting but I am not entirely certain of how awesome it would be. I imagine someday I might be reading this and thinking my fears quaint but I don't know if it's obvious to anyone how a traditional film would work in VR. Not to say I wouldn't want to experience that at some point. Perhaps they will offer a 2D and VR experience for future films so you can watch it as you'd like?

Edited, removed links no longer relevant as free upgrade is no longer available

Recently, Windows 10 was released. I decided to take up the free upgrade offer and so I upgraded from 8.1. I think it's common (and not a bad idea) that many people hesitate upgrading Windows as soon as a new version is released. This is because there may be bugs and other issues, so people tend to prefer to wait a while until many of those issues are worked out. I'm not one of those people, obviously.

Before it was released, I noticed an icon in my notification tray for the upgrade. That little piece of software made it so that you could sign up for the upgrade and it would... Read All

Bane was in both Batman and Robin and The Dark Knight Rises. Red Letter Media has mashed up 2 Batman-Bane fights, with Batman from Batman and Robin (George Clooney) and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises (Tom Hardy).

They fit really well together! Enjoy!

Did anybody pick up Rare replay?

I've been play Viva Pinata with my son. He likes gardens and animals, so I thought it would be up his alley. So far he has enjoyed watching it.

I also played RC Pro Am (Haven't played that in a long time). Man, the d-pad sucks for steering the car, but it is still a lot of fun.

If you haven't checked it out, it is for the Xbox One and costs $30 for 30 games.

I'm playing it again, I'm about 2 hours in. I need something else to play besides Terraria. This will be my third time starting it. Anything I should know going in? Anything you wish you knew when you started?

I'm playing as the female Shepherd and that's really helping. She's much better performed than the male Shep.
