Bustin’ Makes Activision Feel Good: Ghostbusters Is Out

I saw that there new Ghostbusters last night. It's a fun-enough summer blockbuster, innit? I liked the bits with the ghosts and any time Kate McKinnon's character did anything. And just as an old series is back, an old practice is too: the movie tie-in game. Activision today released Ghostbusters [Steam page], a shooty third-person action-RPG with a story that's set after the new film…

Who U Gonna Call? Activision Reveal New Ghostbusters

There'd have been somethin' strange in the neighbourhood indeed had a Ghostbusters game not surfaced in concert with this year's incoming movie. Lo and behold, the medium of cinema and videogames have crossed the streams: Activision have teamed up with Sony Pictures to announce a third-person action RPG with local co-op leanings, based on the supernatural slaying service. It'll launch alongside this summer's silver screen…

Busted: GhostControl Inc Scares Up Funding

I didn't realise how much I wanted a mash-up of X-COM and Ghostbusters until I saw the Kickstarter page for GhostControl Inc. As soon as I had realised how much I wanted the game, I swiftly came to appreciate the nineties-styled Theme Residence design, particularly as it should make great variety possible. Buildings stitched together from various components, so the game is about exploring the…

Wot I Think: Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

This top-down arcade shooter came out earlier this week, and is available to buy for a relatively budget price on assorted download services now. Should you cross its stream, or aim for its flat-top? I don't even know what that means, but look at me, I'm saying lines from a film you've seen! That means you will love me. Guh. Here's my verdict on Sanctum…

An Hour With… Ghostbusters

There's something strange in the PC neighbourhood of this johnny-come-lately movie adaptation, and it don't look good. The surely vital co-op mode the consoles enjoyed has been axed entirely from the PC port, and the European version delayed by nearly half a year. Yes, it's true. These men have no dicks. Nonetheless, I took a very quick look at the US version to get some…

What’s Going On With Ghostbusters?

If you've been trying to keep up with the development and publishing of the Ghostbusters game, then you'll be understandably dizzy. Victim of the Hadron Collider's experiment to merge Activision and Blizzard (I think that's how it happened), thrown between publishers like a radioactive ball, eventually picked up to be part of the misadventures of Atari, and then at the last second swooped in on…

Postin’ Trailers Makes Me Feel Good

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Stay Puft, man[/caption] [pullquote]It is fine to hear those characters again[/pullquote] Ghostbusters, as you may have heard, is back from the dead. It was an early casualty of the Actard merger, but has lately been rescued by Infogrames-in-disguise. Here's the new publisher's opening salvo - a partly pre-rendered trailer mostly showing off the original cast strutting their voice-stuff. It is fine…

I Hear It Likes The Ghostbusters Videos – Update

Update - As reader Schadenfreude points out, there's some turmoil in the world of the Ghostbusters game. Variety reports that Activision have opted out of publishing Sony's game (along with Brutal Legend). So it's without publisher at the moment, but Sony are looking for someone new. Don't expect to see the game before next year. GameTrailers have a three-part developer walkthrough of the forthcoming Ghostbusters…
