Daft Souls 87: Duelyst, Titanfall 2, Overcooked, Thumper

Hello! Cool Ghosts is slowly whirring back into life, and we'll be kicking things off again in 2017 - perhaps at a slower pace than usual, but we're excited to be getting back into things. For now though, we thought it would be nice to squeak out an episode of Daft Souls - I'm joined by Quinns to talk about Duelyst, Overcooked, Titanfall 2, and Thumper.

Finally, thanks again for the support and patience you've shown throughout what has been a very difficult time. Things are not yet back to normal, but I'm keen to get back to making fun stuff. You're all excellent - I hope have a lovely holiday break with friends or family.

Bloodborne: Old Hunter Diaries (Part 4)

HIATUS-BREAKIN' UPDATIN' AND VIBRATIN'! OK so there's no vibration I was wholly lying about that bit. But Matt has finally finished his Bloodborne Diaries - this final episode ends up talking quite a bit about the plot implications of The Old Hunter's last boss, so spoilers, obviously. WHAT A GAME. Enjoy!

Duelyst: The Best Game Ever

We're not good at this hiatus business, are we? Quinns and Matt have recently had their free time devoured by Duelyst, a free-to-play card game that's distressingly good.

Take it from Quinns! A card-carrying card-carrier. He knows his onions (though he doesn't carry onions).

The happy, clanking jazz at the beginning comes courtesy of Jeremy Warmsley.

Something For The Weekend - 5th August 2016

Hello! Just Matt here this week, as Quinns is off exploring GenCon for Shut Up & Sit Down. As you may well have noticed over the last month or so, things have been very quiet on both websites. Sad news I'm afraid, but as and when we're able things will carry on AS IF ALMOST NORMAL - partially for the benefit of you guys, but mostly as a method of keeping me sane. For the past week I've managed little more than endlessly playing Monster Hunter Generations (my favourite new monster is "Big Bubble Boy" - pictured above). Oh boy what a fun time! I've fallen head over heels for a dual-blade aerial build; we're running away to start a new life; you can keep the kids.

Finally this week, it's worth pointing out that whilst the STUFF side of the website has stumbled into a prickly bush, the other half of what makes Cool Ghosts brill is happily continuing: The community are putting together a casual Street Fighter V tournament this weekend -  pop over here to say hello, sign up, and find out more details when they materialise.

And before I sign off one final, vital question: what are you guys playing this weekend?

Jalopy: The Best Game Ever

Any of you lot willing to climb into Quinns' passenger seat again after his Ghost Truck video? No?

What a shame! This week he's taken a look at the superb Jalopy. This is an early access game developed by Greg Pryjmachuk, a designer with the esteemed credentials of working on the Formula 1 franchise of racing games. Why did he swap the champagne and breakneck speeds of F1 for cigarettes and two-stroke engines? Quinns is very excited to explain why this is better, and even more beautiful.
