Watch this, and then tell me you’re disappointed. You can’t! Because every second of Ghostbusters game footage — even though there’s so few of them — is like a hug from regular Jesus, or like a child not being torn to pieces by Evil Flying Jesus. It’s pure joy, is what it is, and the fact that there’s ghost-catching gameplay, some cool cut scenes, shots of New York City getting hit by some kind of spirit bomb (some find Goku for questioning, stat) makes it even better. Plus, I think that was seriously Brian Doyle Murray’s voice as the dude in the top hat, which is like bonus awesome!
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
