Did you once have an Xbox, making happy memories playing Ghostbusters: The Video Game in 2009, followed later on with Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime? Years later you may have left your aging console to collect dust like you once collected achievements. All because of the newer and current Xbox One.

Two days later, Ectofiend666 asked if anyone had scans of the instructions. More then three years later, Alex Newborn brought the thread back to inform ghostheads he came across his instructions. A fresh discussion about C64 version of Ghostbusters began again. I remembered the original post,… Read More
