  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the Ghostbusters theme. As mentioned on the show, this is the only music for the entire game, and it plays on a god damn loop the entire time.
  • 51:30 – Emails! People wanna know about free-to-play games, and fightin’ games!
  • 1:04:15 – Snifferoo. There’s no way next week’s game will be worse than this week’s! Probably!


– According to Price Charting, loose carts of Ghostbusters go for about $9.50. The box and manual will set you back about $30. However, for that price, you can buy the far superior Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the Wii, PS3 and 360. Do that instead.

– For a bunch of neat trivia, like the info on John Belushi originally being tabbed for Ghostbusters, check out this long Vanity Fair article.
