Super Mario Busters

ghostbusterstrophyA very cool mash up video has recently hit youtube. It retells the story of the first Ghostbusters story using Mario and his crew with a special guest from another Nintendo franchise.   The animation looks professional, and the music mixing is astounding.  It’s embedded below, give it a look.

Facebook to target “Core” Gamers soon.

DragonAgeLegendslogoGamasutra is reporting that with the switch to mobile apps facebook games being played are in decline. Facebook’s solution? Target core gamers. Gamasutra uses another article to explain why that’s a bad idea.  Dragon Age is a game series i love and to the left you can see the logo for their facebook game, and have I played it? not even once, not even strongly considered it honestly. Would a push from facebook get you into playing games through the social media hub?  I have my doubts, especially with a next gen incoming, the Ouya and other more open sources  Dark Horse items entering the market, as well as mobile gaming.  Let us know on our Video Game forums.

New Ghostbusters game for iOS released

20130126-123551.jpg

A new free game has been released for iOS .Ghostbusters by beeline interactive is free to play, but features power ups etc. that you can purchase, which is a common them among PC and mobile gaming these days.

It takes place after the Ghostbusters video game, but the story begins with a twist on the first few minutes of the Ghostbusters movie. A character returns in this game we haven’t seen since the first movie, and although i’m in the beginning stages i’m interested to see how the story plays out.

The game play is simplistic, you have a party of ghostbusters, including new recruits, and each ghostbuster is given a class, like scientist, or heavy which have different abilities such as launching slime, or causing more damage.  These classes are differentiated by different colored uniforms, but unlike the real ghostbusters these are pleasantly muted in color (light grey, grey, brown)

If your the first to beat the game and want to write a review let me know, I’d be happy to front page it.
