One of The Real Ghostbuster’s biggest and baddest enemies came from noneother than the spirit of Halloween himself. That’s right, Y’all. Samhain has all of our collective horror hearts for looking so damn cool. If you don’t recall, Samhain had a giant pumpkin head and wore a purple cloak. His job every year was to take hold of all the ghosties out in the world and become one with them all in the spirit of Halloween.
The first trailer for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Ecto Edition, introduces us to an all new Nintendo Switch version of the game as well as physical release that we can get our hands on later in the year. For the moment, there is no Samhain in the game, but the DLC that is lined up for the next couple of months is sure to see the return of the Halloween Ghost with the most. All that to say that Samahain is coming to Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed soon.
Of course, the trailer for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed gave us our first look at Samhain. Or, at least it gave us a look at Samhain’s claw, slamming down on Ecto-1 and scratching the hood.
The synopsis for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed goes like this:
In Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore open the Firehouse to you and the next generation of Ghostbusters. This asymmetrical game of hide and seek is a 4v1 setup where players will either play as part of a team of new Ghostbusters or a Ghost. This title not only allows players to enjoy the game solo or with up to four friends, but also features an online and offline single-player mode available in the form of AI-assisted play. Most importantly, the more you play, the more the story will unfold (with cutscenes). Those already playing will be excited to hear that this story will be expanded in the Ecto Edition coming later this year. Whether haunting or hunting, the game is easy to learn and fun to master!
“As a gamer, I wanted this to be something I would be proud and excited to play.” Illfonic’s Vice President of Technology, Chance Lyon said. “The game will feel very familiar on Switch as on other platforms, and it’s a high-quality port. Most importantly, I’m excited to play the game with my daughter, who games exclusively on the Switch.”
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Ecto Edition is coming soon and will undoubtedly introduce us to Samhain and his minions.
We will be sure to give you some exact dates as we get closer to them.
‘El Paso, Elsewhere’ Trailer Takes You to the Pit of Hell in Texas to Fight the Supernatural
Max Payne was one hell of a game. It was a singular experience, the noir, the slow-motion shootouts, the horror undertones. It was just a great game. Well, El Paso, Elsewhere is a spiritual successor for Max Payne and it’s a good one.
Strange Scaffold’s El Paso, Elsewhere incorporates the slow-motion shootouts, the painkillers, and the same overall look of the Max. However, in this game, you are fighting all-out werewolves, mummies, and vampires. In addition, you are looking for the love of your life in the form of a female vampire named Draculae.
The synopsis for El Paso, Elsewhere goes like this:
Haunted by his memories with the undead queen, the werewolves, mummies, and biblically accurate angels awaiting James are just one threat of many. Fight them off with a wealth of weapons, pills that keep the pain at bay, and badass bullet time that lets you pick and choose your shots or deftly dodge attacks while countering – all while our hero will confront his own memories of this bittersweet, painful relationship and the unfortunate turn of events that brought him to this pit of hell in Texas.
El Paso, Elsewhere is now available on Xbox, Playstation and Microsoft Windows.
Greg Nicotero’s Leatherface Mask and Saw Revealed in New ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Teaser
Gun Interactive’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has given us one heck of a game. The entire cat-and-mouse matches between the Family and the Victims has been a blast to navigate. Each character is fun to play as but it always comes back to Leatherface. Playing as him is always a blast. In our first bit of DLC make-up FX artist and filmmaker, Greg Nicotero gives us a new mask, a new saw, and a brand new kill. This new bit of DLC is coming in October and will cost $15.99.
The arrival of make-up designed by Nicotero is a cool one. The entire design is really cool. From his bolo bone tie to his mask designed with the mouth fixed to where Leatherface’s eye peers through.
Of course, the saw is very cool too, and has the very cool bonus feature of being named a Nicotero saw. Which somehow fits perfectly as the name of a chainsaw.
“What’s so rewarding about working alongside Greg is his wealth of knowledge, his experience with practical effects, makeup and the art of creature creation.” said Wes Keltner, CEO and President of Gun Interactive. “He’s touched so many horror franchises over the years, it just made sense to bring him on board. And when the two of us get together, it’s like kids in a candy store! We had a blast working on this,and bringing that vision to life is something both Gun and Sumo are very proud of.”
Greg Nicotero’s DLC arrives this October. The full Texas Chainsaw Massacre game is out now. What do you think of the new mask? Let us know in the comments section.
‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s’ Zombie Trailer Introduces an Open-World and Operators
This marks the very first time that Zombies come to the world of Modern Warfare. And it looks like they are going all out and adding an entirely new experience to the gameplay.
The new zombies-based adventure will take place in big wide-open massive worlds similar to Modern Warfare II’s DMZ mode. It will also feature operators similar to those in Warzone. These operators combined with an open-world mechanics are sure to bring an entirely new experience to the classic zombies mode that fans are used to.
Personally, I believe that this new update is exactly what the Zombies mode needed. It was due for something to mix it up and this is a very nice way to do it. DMZ mode was a lot of fun and I think that this will be the thing to shake up the world of zombies and get folks interested all over again.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III arrives November 10.
