Spook Central Mentioned On Cross The Streams Podcast

Excerpt from Episode 16 (June 22, 2011)

Matt Prov and Brendan Mertens over at the Ghostheads podcast released their 16th episode this past Wednesday, and they briefly mentioned Spook Central with the creative team behind the new IDW Ghostbusters comic book series: Tristan Jones, Erik Burnham, Luis Antonio Delgad, and Dapper Dan Schoening. The discussion was about which car the team favored most, the Ecto-1 or the Delorean time machine from Back To The Future.

Around the 37:10 mark, Dan mentioned that he prefers to draw the Ecto-1 because, "it's got a lot more character to it. Whenever I draw the Ecto, I consider it as a character." This prompts the hosts to mention that, originally in Ghostbusters, the car was going to be a character, it was going to be alive. As an example of that, they mentioned the Ectomobile Rejects A Parking Ticket deleted scene here at Spook Central. And if you listen really carefully, you can hear Tristan mention that he did the graphics for this here website - which is an honor that I will always be truly grateful for. How many webmasters can actually say that they had an honest-to-God famous comic book artist, Ghostbusters or otherwise, create title artwork for their site? Well, other than Stan Lee doing the art for that Spider-Busters site back in 1997 that Sony had taken down due to improper licensing from Marvel, but that's a story for another day.

Anyway, you can listen to the Spook Central excerpt by clicking on the little play arrow/button above, though if you have a desire to hear about the new Ghostbusters monthly comic series, and lots of other interesting topics, head over to the Cross The Streams site to listen to the entire 50-minute episode. Thanks Brendan for the heads-up.

Gozer Costume Sold At Auction On Hollywood Treasure

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jun. 19, 2011 at 11:55 PM , Categories: Props
Last year Proton Charging reported that Slavitza Jovan's Gozer costume from Ghostbusters was "found in a surplus store on an 'unidentified' costume rack", and that being "a very flimsy piece of kit, the costume has held up well, with the various body-bubbles taking the most abuse over the years." Then, two months ago Proton Charging reported that Abacus Costumes and Props manager Steven Kirk decided to have Hollywood memorabilia auction house Profiles in History offer the costume to the highest bidder.

Syfy's reality series Hollywood Treasure chronicles Profiles in History's hunt for items to sell at their auctions. So it should come as no surprise that the Gozer costume was featured in the episode that aired last Wednesday June 15, 2011, which was entitled "The One That Got Away" (Season 1, Ep 18). Embedded below are the Gozer segments, which includes Steven showing the costume to the Profiles in History crew at his warehouse, the Profiles in History authenticating it using footage from the movie, and the costume going up for auction. It's interesting to note that, although the movie footage is seen clear as day in a few shots, it is later blurred on a monitor when paused. Presumably, when they use the footage to do a comparion, it's considered fair use; but when it's just being shown on a monitor in the background, even if it's a paused still frame, it's no longer considered fair use.

Anyway, you can purchase the whole episode #18 for $2.99 at Amazon, if you'd like to see what else was being offered up in this episode.

ATARI RELEASES NEW GHOSTBUSTERS: SANCTUM OF SLIME DLC CHALLENGE PACK

First Ghostbusters Digital Download Keeps Blockbuster Franchise Alive with New
Add on Content for Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and Windows PC Download

Los Angeles, CA - June 1, 2011 - As a follow up to the first ever Ghostbusters digital title Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, Atari, one of the world's most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, is releasing additional downloadable content - Challenge Pack. In conjunction with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime Challenge Pack will bring hours of a new single player experience to the successful digital title with two game modes, Lonely Hero and Arcade Challenge, on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC on Steampowered.com, June 1.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is a four player, ghost-busting adventure that will take players on a brand new paranormal experience. But with Challenge Pack, players will suit up with their proton packs and assume the role of a lone rookie Ghostbuster tasked to save New York City from a disaster of ghoulish proportions, without any help.

Specific highlights from the Challenge Pack include:

  • Arcade Challenge: Designed for seasoned gamers, Arcade Challenge gives players a limited number of lives to see how their skills line up on a distinct Global Leaderboard. Players run through 5 of the game's most challenging levels in single player mode and once the lives are up, the game is over. Player scores are automatically posted to a new real-time Leaderboard.
  • Lonely Hero: Players can select any level they have unlocked and start from there but this time you are on your own - no co-op, no friendly teammates - just one player to combat the waves of the paranormally possessed.

Developed by Behavior Studios, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime Challenge Pack will be available on June 1, 2011 for $1.99 or 160 Microsoft Points.
