Yup. SciFi Now Magazine in the UK has made their own list of greatest fictional weapons, and once again the Proton Pack is listed (I sense a resurgence on interest, don’t you?) However, as a top 10 (instead of Wizard’s top 50) list, being number nine isn’t quite as good. Then again, it did make it onto a much smaller, less inclusive list, so… (shrug)
So to speak…
The Xbox 360 movie trivia game, Scene It! features Ghostbusters questions (some of which are based on Ghostbusters movie clips.) But don’t get too cocky. According to the Official Xbox Magazine UK, the game may stump the hardest of the core;
Likewise the film clips are a real lesson in memory-management. We’re watching the scene in Ghostbusters were Sigourney Weaver finds out her fridge is possessed by a evil entity. Her eggs start exploding, the yolk frying on the kitchen top in front of her disbeliefing eyes. We count the number that start frying. We’ve got this one in the bag.
“How many hats were hanging on the stand when Diana [sic] came into the apartment?” WHAT? The game certainly knows how to throw you.
There is a demo available for free download through Xbox Live, though
it’s not certain if the demo contains the demo does not contain any Ghostbusters love. I know, cuz I played it last night – it could be kind of fun as a group or family game. And priced the same as a triple-A title (which is good, considering it comes with four buzzer controllers.)
Some good additions to the t-shirt post from last week – there’s a picture of the Anchor Blue shirt (it glows in the dark!) and there’s some feedback on the 80s tees (in short, “don’t”.)
One of the more unique, but somewhat boring Ghostbusters items PiH has ever auctioned off has to be this foam chunk of Terror Dog, presumably one of the wee little piggies that crumbled off as the dogs first got loose (as suggested by the screenshot they include.)
More details on the auction (which includes some sweet items from the Matrix, etc.) can be found here.
Jason sent in a link to Empire Magazine’s top ten film jerks – and against some fantastic jerks, Ghostbusters’ own Walter Peck takes the top spot. No kidding, see for yourself.
