Doom Eternal's launch date of March 20th is fast approaching and as such certain media outlets are covering it before launch. Digital Foundry got a peek at the game for a few hours and interviewed the folks at iD about the game.

"As well as sitting down for *three hours* to play the upcoming Doom Eternal, Digital Foundry's John Linneman also had the opportunity to discuss the new id Tech 7 engine upgrades with Doom Eternal executive producer and id software studio director, Marty Stratton. From engine upgrades to ray tracing to Switch to next-gen consoles, there's a ton of new info in this one."


WarCraft III: Reforged launched yesterday and being a huge fan of the original and the Frozen Throne expansion I was heavily anticipating it's launch. Now that the game's out I've downloaded it and played it on my PC and started the Orc prologue campaign. Back in 2002 Blizzard released the Orc prologue campaign as a standalone game demo that setup the events of WarCraft III. I always felt like it was a unique way to release a demo, with original post game content but as Blizzard recently noted, most fans had no idea it existed. Later on they patched in the prolog into the main game as a playable option but it didn't contain the incredible voice acting and most people... Read All


The seventh season of the Star Wars animated show Clone Wars arrives on Feb.21. If you haven't checked out Star Wars: Clone Wars, now is a good time to get started. I watched all current seasons on Netflix and enjoyed it, so I recommend it for Star Wars fans. It will be on Disney+ and you can find more information here: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/star-wars-clone-wars-season-7-release-date-reveale/1100-6472475/

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!


If you bought Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 you can get the Windows 10 Edition for free! Hurry, this offer ends on April 20th, 2020! I think this is pretty important news, so I'm sharing it here. I think the offer expired some time ago, but it's back once again. If you have not yet taken advantage of this opportunity, I pretty much strongly recommend you do so. This version of Minecraft is called the "Bedrock Edition." It's the same game that is on consoles, (Switch, PS4, XBox One), Android/IOS phones and tablets and more. This also means that cross-play is a feature. Perhaps one of the best parts about the Bedrock Edition is performance. This... Read All


A local news station interviewed fans after seeing Empire Strikes Back open back in 1980 and from the outset you can tell they have absolutely no experience with film or Star Wars fans. Many of the people in line saw Star Wars multiple times, one guy saw A New Hope 17 times and you can tell the interviewer was quite surprised. The line started a couple hours before the showing of the film and again, this seemed surprising for the time and it really was. The Rise of Skywalker was a film that I decided to come to early even though my local Regal finally converted to reserve all the seats. I wanted to have one last hurrah with showing up a bit early and waiting with the... Read All


You can "Raze Hell" in Doom Eternal on March 20th and if the new trailer is any indication iD really did kick up the Doom lore with this game. If you remember back to Quakecon of 2019 the game developers mentioned that they are building a whole Doom universe of lore and story and Doom Eternal would be the game to bring it. I appreciated the simplicity of Doom 2016 in that right away there was a bit of story and the Doom Slayer throws the monitor to the side that your were hearing it from. I appreciated the fun nod and wink to the game being focused on quick run and gun gameplay quite a bit. With that iD has treated the new Doom franchise well and I imagine this will... Read All


There has been news of Nintendo working to launch it's first theme park and today we got a trailer that shows off a very CGI heavy dance themed trailer for Super Nintendo World in Japan. If the trailer is to be taken seriously we'll all be wearing VR glasses in a choreographed dance number looking incredible the entire time while magically not sweating. That said, it looks like your smartphone will play heavily into the theme park and a Mario Kart experience is top of mind for Super Nintendo World. I'm interested in what this will be but the tippy top of my theme park bucket list is checking out the new Star Wars experience at Disney Land. All that said I have no... Read All


Since speedrunning is often topic on Cheerful Ghost, and we run Speedrunning competitions at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, I figure this is a fitting video :)

It covers the history of speedrunning, from the super old school "demo" days of Doom to the current Games Done Quick.

When Bethesda launched Doom on Switch there was some complaints about the port such as lack of 60 fps gameplay, an online requirement (something they immediately removed) and stretched visuals. In a huge update to Doom & Doom 2 on PC, Switch, iOS, PS4, XBox One and Android Bethesda brings all these features as well as quick save and load, level select, weapon carousel, added dpad weapon select, brightness options and new split screen HUD for split screen multiplayer. They also added some updated graphics that brings the health packs more in line with the original release but something they had to change because of trademark issues with the Red Cross(apparently no...
