The guys at Radio GTN just posted their latest podcast with the topic of the week being… Ghostbusters the video game! And because that’s the topic, the guys invited me on to talk about it with them.
I’m normally mush-mouthed and Skype decided I should be 8bit sound, so if I’m tough to hear at times, don’t blame Grim and co., blame the internets. Or me. Whatever.
As it turns out, I’m a giant apologist for game devs. Which, you know, makes sense. Thanks for having me on, gents!
Just to let everyone know, the contest, which closed last Friday, is still on and winners will be hearing from me shortly.
The delay has been a prize sponsor that has gone silent – everyone else I either have their prizes, or expect them shortly, so I know I can pull names for those items. The last one, they haven’t confirmed sending them.
I thought about drawing without them, but then they show up and everyone that won is all choked that they could have won this other thing. So, I gave them a little extra time, and that’s about out.
So, sit tight, winners to be announced shortly, and if extra stuff does show up later, we’ll have a second, distinct contest. Just to be fair.
A big thanks to everyone that entered – nearly 800 of you! That’s an awesome turn-out.
Well, press release FAIL! Atari released this great trailer featuring the creepiest, man-eater ghost on the day of the release of the Ghostbusters video game, but it’s only popping up now. I have access to the Atari press site, and I didn’t know about it! It should go without saying, that if you have not played the game, this will be a big spoiler for you. Consider yourself warned.
The Official Xbox Magazine crew will be celebrating Canada Day (aw, who am I kidding – they don’t care) by playing Ghostbusters multiplay with anyone that cares to join them. The busting will take place between 4-6PM PST – for more info, check out the Facebook event page.
Mattycollector.com has announced that their exclusive line of Ghostbusters figures – one a month – will start at noon, August 3rd (Eastern), with the release of their 6 inch Egon with Slimer (this is inferred. The text does not state explicitly which figure, but rather shows a photo of the 6 inch Egon with Slimer.) No information on price. Stay tuned.
