Ghostbusters: The Video Game will be resurrected in October

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered will let you strap on a proton pack and bust some ghosts in October, just in time for the spookiest holiday of the year. 

The original was a perfectly OK action game, putting it pretty high up on the list of best licensed games. Even with the new movies, however, it's still a strange candidate for the remaster treatment, but I wouldn't say no to zapping some ghosts for a few hours. 

IGN's got a clip of a Stay Puft boss battle, which honestly makes me feel a bit sorry for the big fella. He didn't get asked to be conjured from an overactive imagination; he's just a confused marshmallow man being melted by some dudes with ray guns.

You'll be able to murder this misunderstood monster on October 4.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
