Download: New Ghostbusters 2: The Soundtrack (in “8-Bit Stereo!”)

In need of a retro proton blast to the face? Then check out this featured download of the New Ghostbusters II Soundtrack!

Have no idea what New Ghostbusters II is? Ahem… Wikipedia, a little help, please?

New Ghostbusters II (ゴーストバスターズ2 Gōsutobasutāzu 2?) is a 1990video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy, both developed and published by HAL Laboratory in the PAL region and Japan. The NES version was never released in North America due to licensing issues with Activision. As a result, NES players in North America only received Activision’s Ghostbusters II game.

If you’ve never played the game, then you’re in for a real treat! Featuring 8-bit renditions of  ”Ghostbusters”, “We’re Back”, “Flip City” and even “Spirit”, the game certainly pushed the limits of what the NES was capable of.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game developer reportedly shuts down

Who ya’ gonna call if another Ghostbusters: Video Game ever gets greenlit? Appearently not Terminal Reality.

With a website that directs you to their Facebook page and a Facebook page that hasn’t been updated since early October, people started to assume the wost for the studio. These assumtions were pretty much confirmed yesterday when longtime employee Jesse Sosa commented that the Studio “seems to have finally shut down.”

While Ghostbusters proved to be a success for the Studio, recent releases like Walking Dead: Surival Instinct and Kinect: Star Wars failed to spark customers interest while performing rather poor with reviewers.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game + Sanctum of Slime both 50% off on X-Box Live

I’m sure each and everyone of you have picked up both of these, but if you haven’t, both Ghostbusters: The Video Game and Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime have been marked down by 50% until November 5th on X-Box Live.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime [XBLA] – ($4.99 —> $2.49)

Ghostbusters: The Video Game [Games on Demand] – ($14.99 —> $7.49)

So if you feel as if Sanctum is worth it, or if you’d like to retire your disc copy of the 2009 release, now is most certainly the time!
