This video almost proves Blur is a sequel to Ghostbusters

Now I don't know how indicative these trailers are of what Bizarre Creations' Blur actually looks like with a controller in your hand, but they remind me of the now-we're-going-really-fast-bro moments in The Fast and the Fur...

You know how sometimes you think a thing is coming, and you ask the game company, but the answer is no, absolutely not, we aren't making that game, and then a few months later, the game is announced? That thing that happens k...

Ghostbusters, Fuel demos for Xbox 360 now on XBL

When we recently reviewed Ghostbusters: The Video Game and Fuel, we ended up telling you to "rent it," or essentially try it before you make a commitment (or never make that commitment at all). But we know you're ch...

Twitter Friday: Bustin' makes me feel...aw, nevermind photo
Twitter Friday: Bustin' makes me feel...aw, nevermind
by Colette Bennett

Update: Congratulations to Bug42 and NVmisfit, you're our Twitter quickest reply winners! So that's it for this week. Next Friday we're going to try something different -- we're going to give something away FIRST on Twitter without warning and then post the winners. What will it be?  It's a secret to most!

Not into the whole Twitter thing?  We hear ya.  Check out our other non-tweeting contests like the opportunity to compete for $80,000 worth of computer equipment on Friday.Night.Fights.  Thanks and good luck!

--

Yeah, the whole "Bustin makes me feel good" thing has kind of been worn to the bone since Ghostbusters: The Video game came out, but luckily, me giving away free stuff is not old news yet. I have a feeling it might stay trendy, in fact!

This week I have a whole bunch of random Ghostbusters swag to give away, including two t-shirts, sanitizing slime, inflatable slimers, squeezable Stay Pufts and more. To win a random swag pack, simply follow us on the Dtoid Twitter and wait for us to say it's time to win a prize. When we do, reply with a direct message and say "I like spores, molds and fungus" to win one of these two goodie bags for yourself. From there, we take your address and mail you free stuff. Deal?

Review: Ghostbusters photo
Review: Ghostbusters
by Destructoid Staff

In 1991, had we been given the opportunity to join the Ghostbusters as an “Experimental Equipment Technician,” we probably would have jumped at the chance. It’s a job that would prove to be extremely dangerous -- it would involve not only battling demons and ghosts, but doing so with untested and potentially dangerous equipment.

But in 1991, we were young and careless. In 2009, we're (mostly) responsible adults, and -- despite the fact that most of us are scared to leave the house in thunderstorms -- our dreams of strapping on a proton pack and taking out Gozer and associated spooks and demons never quite faded. Thanks to developer Terminal Reality, Ghostbusters: The Videogame allows players to hop into the shoes of a ghostbusting rookie, a fifth wheel on the established team.

Yes, Ghostbusters: The Videogame features the film cast you’ve come to know and love, in both voice and looks. Taking place soon after the events of 1989’s Ghostbusters 2, Ghostbusters: The Videogame is as close to a true sequel as we’re going to get until the “forever in development hell” Ghostbusters 3 film gets off the ground. With Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd responsible for the script, and the most essential folks from the original cast on board, Ghostbusters: The Videogame could be exactly what fans have been clamoring for.

But is the game any good? Nick, Conrad, and Anthony (almost a full Ghostbusters team!) get to ghostbusting business, after the jump.view full story + comments
