I tried it at a cousin's place this weekend. It was my first time playing a VR headset game and I did get a little nauseous which was weird because I'm not the type that gets sick on carnival rides nor do I get seasick. But once I "adjusted" - it was actually pretty fun but sort of like Spirits Unleashed, if you're the type to get bored quick.... But this is VR and different mission types create some variety SU doesn't have. But you can finish the game in a day like SU. Idk, if you got the dough go for it... but then again, the holidays are coming so there might be a discount price soon. (and fyi, I'm not an active gamer anymore) Like say I was handed $400 but had to choose either a VR set and this game or funding the HasLab, I'd choose the latter...

Yeah I have to get some ginger chews and a fan in face or I get pretty sick in VR. Spirits unleashed and haslab both felt like they were made by die hard Ghostbusters fans, I didn't get that impression from ghost lord. I much rather gotten spirits unleashed or 2009 GB in VR.. I'll wait to black Friday, see if it goes on sale

Ha, I use ginger tea.

I think in a way Ghost Lord could be good for entry level fans that are just getting into Ghostbusters and aren't beholden to the past 40 years of content or really just need a game to play on their Meta or Playstation VR.

Man, Ray Parker Jr. must REALLY be tightening the screws on the GB theme. This game uses a cover knock-off from a Halloween Party CD.

11/2: I either this month or next month, the first free DLC will include two new game modes: Heist & Seek and Infestation. The latter will be familiar because it was the 2nd mission of the game when you go to Hookfaber Factory and deal with a Nest Monster. In Heist & Seek, you pursue the ghosts of three bank robber brothers but the catch is if a player goes down during the mission, the player who revives them gets their money.

To anyone who owns this game and can grab an image somehow, I heard on the Golden Gate Bridge there's a Gustav Hookfaber museum and in one corner there's a timeline of events of some sort. If you post that timeline, mucho appreciated!

Infestation mode will be formally added on December 15 (so that ups it to 62 total missions) and 99.9% likely it's just like the Intro Hookfaber Factory mission. Look like 3 new costumes, including the Stay Puft one, and a patch. So I guess it's Patch 3.0 essentially. At some point, two more packs/throwers will be added. One is blue, one is purple (unless you bought Full Containment and have it already?)

EDIT: Looked at the Rise site and they have the Buster Bundle #2 and separates listed already. Costumes are Spinners (another Afterlife nod nice!), Grill, Suits, and Mascot. The two packs are called Bones and Souls.

In January, the next mode will be added and it is "narrative infused," the Slimer Hunt. The original jump suits from the ’80s films will be added and pitted against Slimer for a “darker and a bit scarier” mode.

Then there will be a major update headed in March 2024. The ? tease is in the style of the FE frozen logo.

To anyone who owns this game and can grab an image: I'm looking for shots of the Stats screen on the Containment Unit files for Dark Shoal, Googly, Pinny, Bruiser, and Electro-Rat or Tips for Electro-Rat.

If they even exist: Variant tab for Lost Soul, Puffer, Electro-Rat, or Dark Shoal, Stats tab for Banshee or Ghost Lord, Tips tab for Ghost Lord?

Much appreciated! (and you'll get a credit on the wiki)

Unless ndreams being acquired by another company caused a delay, the Slimer Hunt DLC should be out by the 31st since it was advertised as coming out this month and we're running out of January, lol. Last 2 DLCs came out on a Thursday and a Friday though.

There was an AMA this morning. Not much but on the Slimer Hunt other than 'coming soon,' but it was said:
https://discord.com/channels/5046030667 ... 0741271663

-You’ll see with Slimer Hunt how the story connects with the Ghostbusters in New York and we intend our future DLC to similarly connect with events from the movies. We have no plans to directly mimic movie scenes.

-Yes, we have already started adopting a more serious tone in our work since the December patch. ‘Slimer Hunt’ is the next content release and we’ve tried to make it more faithful to the original movie in terms of tone. That includes dialing back the combat and dialing up exploration and investigation. The colour palette is more muted and of course it has a ghost you’ll be more familiar with.

Coinciding with the release of Slimer Hunt are flight suits for all our standard characters so you can get closer to the feeling that Egon, Ray and Peter had going up against the ugly spud for the first time.

EDIT: Some of the common critiques I'm seeing is Slimer Hunt was too simple or too short.
