Twinstiq Game Club Plays: Ghostbusters (2009) (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Hello Internet and welcome to Twinstiq’s Game Club. Game Club is where we each nominate a game and then, as a team, play the game to completion, talking about it in a little weekly podcast on Sundays.

It’s time to answer that, now, timeless question: “Who ya gonna call?”

That right people, we are taking a step back to 2009 to try out the incredible take on Harold Ramis & Dan Aykroyd’s Ghostbusters for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Are you more than disappointed in the new film? Are you missing the likes of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Janine Melnitz? Are you still waiting for the true third movie? Well look no further. Developed by Terminal Reality and published by Atari this little gem went, somewhat, under the P.K.E Meter back in 2009.

This third-person shooter was actually written by both Aykroyd and Ramis to serve as the long delayed third entry to the franchise. In the game you step into the boots of a new, and purposely, unnamed recruit to the team of Ghostbusters. It is your job to test out new equipment and fight alongside the other Ghostbusters. Taking place two years after the events of Ghostbusters II (making it around Thanksgiving 1991) the Ghostbusters are now officially on the city’s payroll. Many of the cast come back and lend their likeness to the game including: Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. They are joined by Annie Potts, William Atherton, Brian Doyle-Murray and Alyssa Milano (Charmed, Who’s The Boss).

You can pick this game up on Steam for $10 or find a used copy on PS3, Xbox 360 (PS3 seems to have removed it from their virtual store. However, it shouldn’t be hard to find a used copy for us console gamers). If your playing on PC I recommend you using a game controller to play the game.

For our first episode, if you want to play along with us, please play through the first two chapters.

So sit back, get ready to be slimed, and until next time:
