 drool drool drool

Variety now reports the following:

Quote
All four members of the movie team -- Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis -- will be giving voice and likeness rights for the game. Some supporting castmembers have signed up as well, including William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray and Annie Potts.

In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Oh, and the game looks to feature multiplayer AND co-op. Call your friends and trade quotes while blasting ghosts as New York's finest? Hell yeah. icon_cool

By the way, found a nifty fan trailer for a movie version of part 3 I thought pretty cool. Check it out on YouTube here.

Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

I'm Winston Zeddmore, Your Honor. I've only been with the company for a couple of weeks, but these things are real.  Since I joined these men, I've seen shit that'll turn you white.

This game will be fun if only to exchange Ghostbusters quotes while frying ghosts.   icon_lol

Gellar is right. This thread is overflowing with fail and that makes any child of the '80s sad. "Ghostbusters" for the win. Although I love this quote from the second one:

"Two in the box."

"Ready to go!"

"We be fast, and THEY BE SLOW!"

my favourite quote:(stolen from IMDB)

Dr Ray Stantz: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.
Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!
Mayor: Is this true?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes it's true.
[pause]
Dr. Peter Venkman: This man has no dick.



anyway,i am sure that the new ghostbusters game will be good,but...picture little metal orphan in Britain in the 80s,playing on his Sinclair Spectrum 128k +2 with built in datacorder ....playing his favourite game...Ghostbusters

the new game will be good.....but will it be better than this!!???
Ghostbusters from Activision(1984)

you could sing along to the theme tune on the title screen because the words appeared on the screen..the new one better have this!!






the answer is NO...No it wont be better than this!!

okay,it might be icon_biggrin

In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Yeah... I'm thinking that #1- we all saw GB2 and it sucked, and #2- they might want to pretend GB2 never happened.

This might be a case where the game company would likely do a much, much better job.

And PS, Gigli is not better than anything whatsoever.  If someone thinks it's better than GhostBusters... go downtown and turn in your penis.

Hell, you don't even need a penis to love Ghostbusters.  I know plenty of women who love it.

I was in Manhattan about six months ago with my 4 year old daughter.  Way downtown.  When we headed back to the parking lot, I noticed this small, thin building with a red door across the street.  I just about geeksploded.  I asked the attendant and, sure enough, it was the Ghostbusters HQ.  I had to explain it to my kid, but had to add that she had to wait to see the movie (she'd never make it past the librarian).

The quotes that probably drop into real life most often for me are:

"...dogs and cats living together.  Mass hysteria!" (my wife actually said this just the other day)
"Nice shot, Tex!"
and
"I'm right in the middle of something, Ray!" with added slap to addressee's head.


Oh, and there was no Ghostbusters II.  Never happened.

I was actually going the other way with that line.  I don't think anyone who likes Gigli has any need for a penis.

The original Ghost Busters was simply ten tons of awesomeness.  I'll never understand how it was possible to screw up GB2 so badly.
