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.

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.


In this episode, we talk all about Matt Groening's new Netflix series, Disenchantment, and whether we think it lives up to the standard of The Simpsons and Futurama. But first we discuss what we've been playing and watching over the last month and discuss games that might not need sequels (thanks to @noigelarcane on Twitter for the idea).


Netflix is on fire lately, releasing new movies and shows at light speed. Recently they released Hold the Dark, by Jeremy Saulnier (director of Blue Ruin and The Green Room) and in this episode Jon and Travis give their reviews and talk about some of the fan reaction. If your hyper-specific Netflix categories suggest that you watch dark, slower paced, mysterious, cerebral movies, check out Hold the Dark and then come check out the episode!


In the newest episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio yet, we talk about the home release of Avengers: Infinity War, how our thoughts have changed since we saw it in the theater, and the extra stuff on the Blu-Ray.

But because it's us, and we love talking about Star Wars... we talk about Star Wars first.
