A new trailer. A firm release date, of June 2009. If hearing Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson voice the goddamn Ghostbusters again for what looks like a great videogame doesn’t bring a big-ass, dopey grin to your face, then there is no joy left for you in the world. I have to call my insurance company today and deal with the local Department of Motor Vehicles to deal with a car title issue, and I’m still happy. THAT’S HOW FUCKING AWESOME THIS THING IS.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
