Chris writes: "The Ghostbusters movies (yes, both of them) will never get old for me. I’ll watch them thirty years from now and still be entertained to no end with the masterfully told story of four men, a woman, another man, another woman, a baby, another man, a giant marshmallow-man, a Carpathian destroyer, an asshole, and a bunch of ghosts.

Then news came out that a new Ghostbusters game would be released in March of 2011 (last month, for those not keeping track).
