GAMEPLAY

  • G4TV Gameplay Footage Remix (November 16, 2007 footage, 1:38)
    Since G4 originally had YouTube remove the copies that were uploaded there, the GB Props folks took their footage and remixed it so that they can't claim copyright infringement. After all, G4 doesn't own the gameplay footage itself - Sierra/Vivendi does.
    • YouTube - Streaming

  • PlayrTV on Bravo UK, May 10?, 2008 Episode (5:06)
    • YouTube - Streaming
    You get to see another pack weapon (slime balls?), and a much different look at the PKE meter. Not to mention the slime tethers in full action. If you watch on the roof fight, there also seems to be some sort of overheating/overcharging on the proton pack, giving the basic proton stream a short, powerful wallop. And, if that's not enough, we get a first look at Ilyssa, the damsel-in-distress for the game. Also, the game footage appears to be using the movie score in a reactive form (meaning, it changes as the action changes). Plus the narrator explains that the pack has four modes, each with a secondary fire mode (so, 8 "weapons" total.)

  • G4 Live Hands-On Demo (July 14, 2008)
    (Yes, the new rookie is modelled after the guy who demonstrates the game in this video, Sierra Associate Producer Ryan French.)

  • Ryan French Demo Walkthrough at Comic-Con (by DreadCentral) (July 28, 2008, 9:51) (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, ESP. DOWNLOADABLE QT VERSION)
    In this video we learn that the player character (the rookie) does not talk; that there are innocent civilians hidden throughout the game being terrorized by ghosts and if you save them, you'll get an achievement for that. Also collectibles show up at the firehouse, on a display shelf or something like that. The player's health damage is noted by redness on the edges of the screen ala Gears of War. The Pause menu, on the side of the PKE Meter, is seen at 7:47.

    IncGamers got to sit down with Brendan Goss and Drew Haworth from Terminal Reality to talk about the Ghostbusters video game and there is some SWEET footage of a multiplayer game being set up and in action. You also glimpse the player sliding down the pole in the firehouse, and a couple of times you can see the pack overheat and let out some steam.
