Cheerful Ghost Radio

Cheerful Ghost Radio is a postcast from the Cheerful Ghost community about interesting stuff in gaming and other various bits of nerdery. Newest episodes at the top.

The episode you've all been waiting for, the scheduling-around-holidays-is-hard-but-we're-back-now episode! It's been a little while but we're back to talk about all the cool stuff we've been playing and watching since we last graced your podcast app of choice. Plus our Christmas gaming loot, and an update on Tale of the White Wyvern development!


This is the kind of episode that only comes once every decade. We cover our favorite games from the 2010s, and if you've been paying attention, some of these will be expected. But which one will take the top spot for each of us? Listen and find out!


It's been four years since the Star Wars sequel trilogy began, and with The Rise of Skywalker, the trilogy concludes. If you've heard any previous episode of this show, you likely heard a tangent about Star Wars, so it's no surprise that we are talking about this, one of the biggest events in recent Star Wars history. Come join us as we discuss the film, and share thoughts from some members of the Cheerful Ghost community as well.

In this episode, Jon references this GamesRadar article:

In this episode we discuss Valve's announcement that a new Half-Life sequel is coming to VR and the newest addition to Episode IV that makes it a super special edition, Maclunkey! And we talk about what we've been playing and watching over the past month, as is tradition.

Note: In this episode we incorrectly conflate Rob Thomas, the TV producer, and Rob Thomas, the lead singer of Matchbox 20. Apologies to both Rob's.


Hello everyone, welcome to The State of the Wyvern for December 2019! Before we get into the changes, we want to shout out those brave adventurers making their names on the leaderboards. These numbers may be a little different from the audio above, as we recorded this a few days ago.

It's been a dream for decades, but it's now a reality: a live-action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian. In this episode, we discuss the first three episodes, how we see the series progressing, and how The Mandalorian might play into other Star Wars properties.


The final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is out, and we have some opinions about it! We talk about our thoughts and predictions for the Skywalker Saga finale, as well as what we've been playing and watching this past month.


It's that time of year, folks. The scent of pumpkin spice is in the air. So we thought, what better time to try out all the pumpkin spice flavored things we could get our hands on and review them live? What could go wrong? Come experience the flavor of the season with us in this special episode!


We love to check in every month or so about what we've been playing and watching. It had been a while, though, so we devoted almost the entire episode to it! And we check in on Jon's playthrough of Link's Awakening on the Switch to see how he liked the end.


We've returned to Koholint Island after 26 years for this review of the new Nintendo Switch remake of The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening. This is one of our most anticipated games in a while, and we're stoked to finally have our hands on it. Warning: this one gets surprisingly philosophical for a few minutes, and may be worth a listen just for that.
