No word on the GB/GB2 double-collectors set, or the collectors extras, but it’s nice to know it’s got a hard release date now (plus, it sounds like they are aiming to release it at the same time as the game, according to The Digital Bits.)

Thanks to Matthew for the heads up.

On your marks… get set…


Entertainment Weekly has called Ghostbusters THE funniest comedy in the last 25 years;

In the summer of 1984, the only pop-culture question more common than ”Where’s the beef?” was ”Who you gonna call?” The dream trio of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis was the epitome of sarcastic comedy cool, battling slimy ghosts, the nosy Environmental Protection Agency, and a giant Stay-Puft marshmallow man.

The commenting pedants don’t agree – haters. Thanks to Nevil for the spot.

Ray Parker Jr. performed Ghostbusters on Japanese TV, backed by a Japanese boy-band… I think.

The man looks good – it has to be said. Thanks to Andreas and mp3j0ker for that one.
