NYCC 09: Ghostbusters: The Video Game PS3 Progress Report

50°
292w ago - I'm following Ghostbusters: The Video Game closer than any human being should be and that I'm getting pretty good at spotting even the tiniest of changes.

Let's take today's New York Comic-Con demo as an example. I was handed the controller, the demo started up, and I immediately identified the level as one I [Register or Login to view links] a great deal about on April 28, 2008.

This is the one where Ray and the recruit are battling through an architect's office, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man shows up, and the boys duke it out with some pesky poltergeists on the roof. Good stuff, but something I've already seen.

However, it was immediately noticeable that the game looked better.

Today, things looked markedly smoother and more realistic.

Now, this level makes use of the PKE Meter quite a bit, so when I whipped it out and the game dropped into first-person mode, I was surprised to find an overhauled point of view. Gone is the clear-goggle setup that basically spotted spectral trails out of thin air; in its place is a binocular-looking setup with a green tint and crosshairs...

Below is a video of it courtesy of nublet06 via YouTube.. and the caption reads as follows:

"Footage of me killing some dudes with head exploding headshots with the sta14 gun in the demo of Killzone 2. Get this gun by throwing a grenade at the guy thats standing on the roof of the buildin..."
