I get lots of stuff in the mail – LOTS! Like these Wii screenshots. I’ve got a lot more and a big thanks to Timo for sharing them. However, I’m not sure where they’re from yet (I’m waiting for Timo to get back to me on that.) Sometimes it’s just helpful to know where they came from, so I can try and track down copies (or better copies – as Timo admits, they’re a little fuzzy) – but more importantly it’s a matter of giving their source credit. So, I’m going to hold on to the bulk of the pictures, in bigger format, but here are a select few awesomes. Regardless, stay tuned – I expect we’ll see a lot more Wii/PS2, and dare I hope, DS pictures soon.
[UPDATE] Ah ha! They’re from the German gaming magazine, N-Zone! Nice. Though it’s funny that the Wii version of the New Recruit has a bit of Real Ghostbusters Egon hair. Thanks again to Timo for sending them in. Everyone should keep an eye out for their favorite Nintento magazine – if one gaming mag has pictures, the rest will likely be publishing more or similar shortly!
After all the attention lavished on Terminal Reality, Red Fly Studios is starting to talk a bit about the Wii version of the Ghostbusters video game. This interview is fairly broad, but there is some Ghostbusters talk;
You also develop the Wii version for Ghostbusters, which looks highly promising too. Could you name one feature of the version why Wii owners should buy it in a first place?
CB: Well, for starters let’s state the obvious – if you own a Wii, and you are a Ghostbusters fan, then you should own Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the Wii. *Otherwise, if you don’t, other Ghostbusters fans will consider you a traitor to the franchise and will come knock down your door and will hold an intervention, possibly a tickle fight – true story! *Additionally, Ghostbusters: The Video Game is all about shooting and wrangling ghosts with an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on your back, and destroying tons of expensive furniture along the way, so what better way to act like a Ghostbuster then being able to use the Wiimote as the Proton Stream with the comfort of destroying your own living room!*
In the relatively short period time between me leaving the office and getting home today, something had gone terribly wrong at Ghostbusters Headquarters – it turns out the messageboard had taken up all the space it possibly could, interfering with its own operation and the operation of Troy’s other sites.
Having marched West ages ago, Troy announced that he’s shutting down the board and leaving the domain in placeholder mode – sad news to see one of the oldest GB sites and messageboards calling it a day, but as Troy himself puts it, it’s time for GB to be less job-like, and these days his web space priorities lie elsewhere (check it out and buy double copies), making it necessary to reclaim space from the HQ. You can’t fault a guy for wanting to kick back and relax after more than a decade of dedicated IT service to GB fans everywhere.
To the guy who always had a cooler computer than me, a glum salute from Proton Charging. Everybody feel free to show your love in the comments.
