Agreed, no surprise a fan-favorite like Boogieman won. I guess the feeling is Gozer has been overused throughout media?

It was odd that RGB and Classic Slimers are cosmetic variants. Does that imply they're reaching some limit on new additions that they have to look at programming loopholes to put in new ghosts? Weird.

Nice deet with the OG's weathered flightsuits in Afterlife. Brass plated packs, double nice!

"Coming soon?" lol, who they think they fooling anymore? Next week. :P

According to Albert on stream, it could be THIS week.

I'm just wondering how they'll implement selecting the Slimer skins for Winky and Brainy... well, either way, we'll know soon.

If I had to guess, it's an approval thing. If they add a wholly new ghost class with new abilities and everything that's an awful lot more that has to go through Ghost Corps/Sony for approval as opposed to getting approval for the cosmetic change and using mechanics they already have a green light on.

Yeah, good point. Sort of like with the boss bounties. Curious what ghost types the Scoleri Brothers and Boogieman are going to be. Scoleris, I could see them being either Bashers or Poltergeist - they toss tables, flip chairs, and carry a Prosecutor away in the movie but an unused ability was they were electrokinetics. Boogieman, hmm, probably another Overlord with the causing fear factor and in the show he made portals - here in the game, he'll probably be able to open multiple rifts at once.

Extraplasm this week is an interview with CCO Jared Gerritzen.
https://www.podbean.com/site/EpisodeDow ... 64B37S5M3X

-started work on it in 2018, explaining the game to Ivan

-was going to be it's own video game universe sort of like the multiverse in IDW at first then adjusted once they got the Afterlife script. An old idea was a sort of B-team bought their own Ghostbusters franchise and they went across the USA on busts.

-Samhain was a favorite of Ivan Reitman's so approving the Ecto Edition story happened easily

-tried to get Bill

-voice recording with Dan and Ernie was done over Zoom during Covid

-Recording Nameless, they told Greg to be smarmier and so a terrible impression of Gilbert Gottfried

-Gear shells was an idea that came late. Teases some 'crazy ones' are coming up

-at the beginning, they didn't know what they could do. Not even a guarantee they'd get Dan and Ernie.

-the Clocktower Brewery Pub level is based on one in Tacoma where one of Illfonic's studios are located. The clock is based on the Tacoma clocktower

-Baggy and visiting the Frozen Empire set

-meeting Dan and Winston in person, spending 6+ hours with Dan

-really thought Gozer was going to win the vote

-winning a Scoleri Brothers auction

-played coy on the upcoming 'double trouble' DLC

-that security camera glitch, on the team trying to be diligent about fixing flaws found by players who tell them how they did it and those that won't say.

The Security Camera hiding place was considered a glitch? I really liked them for their sneaky potential, made you have to think about stuff on the ceiling as well as on the floor.

No, but the cameras could be used to glitch the rifts into places where you couldn't interact with them or out of the map entirely. So, instead of devoting an insane amount of time to fixing how rifts interact with cameras after they've been destroyed, they removed the ability to interact with cameras at all. Not the most IDEAL solution, but definitely the most time and money efficient one.

Oh, that I wasn't aware of. :shock:

Yeah, there's a few pretty insane glitches that SOME folks know about and how to reproduce. I can think of 2-3 off the top of my head that I haven't publicly reported because I don't want to put out there exactly how to do certain things... Like break the Heat bar so you can fire the proton stream indefinitely without having to vent.
