My mother does, and I kept a can so I could whip it out anytime I felt like singing the song.

Killers doesn't really do it for me to be honest. It has some good songs, but on the whole it's one of my least favourite Maiden albums.


Killers basically sounds like the shit that was left over after they recorded the first album.  It's like two-thirds filler and one third decent tunes.  Not great, but decent.  The only Maiden album worse in that regard is Fear of the Dark, which is like five-sixths filler. :P


I always thought Number of the Beast was the filler from the Killers sessions.

It's my least favourite Maiden album - of the "classic" ones.

HalleFUCKINGlujah.

'Ghostbusters'
 
Vivendi Games is pacting with Sony Pictures to turn "Ghostbusters" into a videogame franchise.
First title in what the publisher hopes will be a series of "Ghostbusters" games is set for release in fall '08 from Vivendi's Sierra label.

All four members of the movie team -- Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis -- will be giving voice and likeness rights for the game. Some supporting castmembers have signed up as well, including William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray and Annie Potts.

In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Deal comes on the heels of several other classic movies that have recently been adapted into successful vidgames, including EA's "The Godfather" and Vivendi's own "Scarface: The World Is Yours."

"We noticed we did well on 'Scarface' and were alert for new opportunities to turn iconic film products into games in a way that is a new manifestation of the franchise," Vivendi Games CEO Bruce Hack said. "'Ghostbusters' is unquestionably among the small number of movies in that class."

Vivendi has sold more than 2.5 million units of last year's "Scarface" game worldwide, grossing more than $125 million and making it a solid success, if not quite at the level of top franchises like "Halo." Though Vivendi hasn't yet confirmed plans, a sequel is known to be in the works.

Hack noted that, in making both deals, Vivendi did a survey of gamers asking which movie properties they would like to see turned into videogames. "Scarface" and "Ghostbusters" were both in the top five.

Publisher is particularly optimistic for the chances of "Ghostbusters" because, unlike the young male-targeted "Scarface," it has the potential to appeal to children and adults. Developer Terminal Reality is making a "Ghostbusters" game for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 aimed primarily at the core gamer demographic, while Red Fly Studios is making a version for Playstation 2, Wii and DS designed more for families and casual gamers.

With the addition of "Ghostbusters," Vivendi now has several licensed franchises in its portfolio, including "Scarface," the Robert Ludlum books such as "Bourne Identity" and "Covert One," and rapper 50 Cent.

It's the first major vidgame deal for one of its library titles that Sony Pictures has made. Studio talked with several publishers before making a deal with Vivendi. Such deals can be quite lucrative because licensing revenue comes in with very little spending on the studio's side. Advances for multiyear deals on major franchises such as "Ghostbusters" are typically in the tens of millions of dollars.

"This brand is a very important asset for the studio, and we feel it's prime time for it to be rediscovered through videogames," said Mark Caplan, VP of Sony's consumer products division.

Several "Ghostbusters" games came out around the time of the two movies, and one in the past decade has been tied to the animated series "Extreme Ghostbusters."

*waits for Losfer to see this thread*

Poutine still gives me nightmares after Los tried forcing it on me :P


You have no idea what you're missing!  :P  I mean Jesus, Louise loves it now.  You God damned stuffy London fucks, I'll kill you all yet.

You eat jellied eel pies, but not poutine, for shame!!!

I think tonight we're celebrating by having some.  All of this seal clubbing all day to pay the electric bill in my igloo deserves a reward.


What's wrong with eel? (Though I tend to favour unagi).

You still club seals? In Ottawa, we make throw rugs out of rude Frenchman that have crossed the river from Quebec.

Casual music listeners don't want to hear new things.  They want to hear Wrathchild every bloody time.


I know what you mean. Though I'd rather hear Drifter or Murders in the Rue Morgue.

I hate poutine.

Everybody I know loves it, but I just can't stand it. It's gross.

And my Cthulhu worship has pretty much lapsed since I went abroad.

Mate, where are you from in Canadiaville?  :P  The wife and I just watched the clip and she started making fun of my Nova Scotian accent in response.  :P

Controller looks good.  As much as I hate on Sony lately, the Dual Shock is the best controller ever.


I'm an Ontarioville bastard from Ottawaville. I don't think the Nova Scotia accent is that strong, and I lived in Halifax for a year. Where's your wife from?

Devil Summoner

+ Great translation
+ Unique setting for an RPG
+ Fun to fuse demons and make new ones

- Combat gets repetitive, quickly
- Story gets a little ridiculous at the end
- Soundtrack not as strong as other MegaTen games

For the next game....I'll choose

Threads of Fate or do System Shock 2 that RPGRocker mentioned.

Glad you like it.

It is a good album, it's just certain songs overplayed by classic rock radio, unfortunately.

The game just didn't have that intangible "mojo," charm, or "soul" that Chrono Trigger did.


Pretty subjective reasoning for a topic based on objectivity. You can't objectively say Cross lacked soul, you can't objectively say Trigger had soul, and you can't objectively say that soul really is essential.


I felt the same, to be honest, but I didn't feel like bringing it up unless someone else did. I don't want this to turn into Chrono defense/Chrono bash thread.

It's funny - I watched that video this morning and all I could think was "Fuck - I sound like that Nintendo 64 kid without the screaming".
