Terraria, the game that we can’t get enough of on Cheerful Ghost, has achieved one more step toward their goal of being available on every system. This time, it’s the Nintendo Switch!

This isn’t the Journey’s End update, and in fact isn’t even up to date with the PC version, it’s the same as the other console versions which are still a couple updates behind, pending some work porting the new changes over.

If you haven’t picked this up, this might be a good time for it. One thing to note is that the price, $29.99, is a little steep compared to the PC version which is $9.99 normally, but is currently on sale for $4.99.

Generally speaking, PC is probably the way to go for... Read All

For me, the biggest game hype to come out of E3 was for the Link's Awakening remake. The Gaming Historian recently dropped a very well made historical retrospective on Link's Awakening due to the new interest in the game because of the remake. It's a very timely look back and if you are a fan of the original or want to know more about why this game is so well loved this is something you need to watch!

One thing I've heard pretty strongly from the people that played Link's Awakening at E3 was that the game is incredibly beautiful BUT they haven't quite got the game performance to deliver and the game lags a bit during certain scenes. Grezzo is the company that is creating this new version and they've ported/created some of the best Zelda titles around including the Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D and Luigi's Mansion on 3DS. Clearly they have the ability to make the game fluid, hopefully that comes together in time for launch on September 20th of this year.

Hey everyone. It's been a quick few weeks since we first dropped the first details of Tale of the White Wyvern and it was fun to see people in the community excited about playing it! As we put the finishing touches on the game for the upcoming beta I wanted to let you know a few more details a bit at a time to give you a taste of what to expect when the game launches.

How Player Leveling Works

In Tale of the White Wyvern you spend your daily turns per day fighting enemies in the forest to gain experience, gold and if you are lucky you may find some gems. Once you gain enough experience and feel you are powerful enough you can go to Tarbreth's Adventurer Training and... Read All


Nintendo just Tweeted out some more details of their upcoming free to play mobile game, Dr. Mario World that's coming to Android and iOS July 10th! It looks like a modern take on the classic gameplay made to work well for phones. Since it's free to play, it will be a day one thing I'll play. That said, the gameplay in the video looks fairly slow paced and its not obvious that the "upside down" gameplay of sorts will be fun. Makes sense they are doing it that way with touch controls but it looks like something I'll have to try to know for sure. For me, Dr. Mario is one of the best puzzle games somewhat in same league as Tetris so they have some of that to live up to.


On May 19th of this year The Phantom Menace celebrated it’s 20th anniversary so we got together to record this bombad, okeeday celebration Podcast!

Jon, Tim, and Travis are back as always, but as a special treat, our friends Rett and Taylor from Game Dev's Quest joined us to reflect on Episode I, what it means to us, and how its perception has changed over time.

And stick around to find out how well we do at discerning Star Wars character names from actual human diseases!

Game Dev's Quest is an awesome podcast about game development, and you should go listen to that now. Well... Listen to this episode and *then* go listen to Game Dev's Quest.

If you were paying attention on Cheerful Ghost this week, you saw my posts about the big presentations up to Sunday, and then only scattered info from there on. Yeah, sorry about that everyone. I had planned to do my usual summaries from each of the big conferences but I got knocked out by a bad case of strep throat.

But I've caught up on the news, and rather than suddenly dropping a ton of posts, I'm just going to share a few highlights. I picked the Engadget video embedded above for this post because it hits a lot of the high points for the general public, even if they aren't all my highlights.

These aren't in any particular order except the first two:
