Marvel dropped trailers for Captain Marvel and Avengers Endgame in the same week, and our heads exploded in anticipation. RIP Jon, Tim, and Travis. But we were prepared for this: our hosts have been replaced by Life Model Decoys.

We're in a Castlevania mood this month! If you liked our recent review of Castlevania on Netflix, then listen to us talk about the game that started it all, way back in 1986, and started one of the most-loved game series of all time!


Dracula's war against humanity rages on, and we are here to tell you all about it! Netflix recently released season 2 of Castlevania, their hit series based on the vampire-slaying video games. Will Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard stop Dracula and bring peace? Find out in this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio!

And if you'd like to hear what we thought of the first season way back in Episode 4, check it out here: https://cheerfulghost.com/Travis/posts/3452/cheerful-ghost-radio-episode-3-castlevania-special


In this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio, we're continuing our NES Classic reviews with Metroid! Released in 1986, Metroid puts you in control of Samus, fighting through aliens on the planet Zebes, and taking on Mother Brain. Metroid has spawned numerous sequels, and along with Castlevania started the "Metroidvania" subgenre of action-adventure games.


Solo: A Star Wars Story recently released on Blu-ray, so we dove back in to talk about it because we can't resist a good Star Wars Discussion. We reflected on the film and how our thoughts might have changed since we saw it in theaters, talked about the special features, and gave it a final Ghost Scale rating!


Recently Cheerful Ghost went to an event put on by local PDX indie game developers Moonlight Kids showing off their upcoming game The Wild at Heart. Justin Baldwin was awesome enough to talk to us about the game and their upcoming show at Double Fine’s Day of the Devs convention!

Rumor has it that Nintendo is working on a new version of the Switch! Red Dead Redemption 2 takes nearly 100gb of hard drive space on your console! We played and watch some things! Come listen as we talk about all of this fun stuff.


In this extra spooky episode, we played Ghosts 'n Goblins and were haunted by the experience!

Ghosts 'n Goblins is a brutally difficult action platformer on the NES and NES Classic that has delighted and tormented people for decades. It spawned a sequel on the SNES, two spin-off series, and a few thousand broken controllers probably.


In this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio, Adam and Jon are on the floor at PRGE talking about all the fun they're having while Tim and Travis sit at home and wish they were there.
