The industry is still shaking from the earthquake announcement of Vivendi and Activision's merger today, but gamers themselves are going to have a lot of questions too. Both companies hold their fair share of much-loved franchises, several of which have extremely radid fanbases, so worry is going to be high as to what the deal is really going to mean.

Ghostbusters is now a twenty-three year old movie, and aside from a few vague promises of a sequel from co-writer and star Dan Ackroyd and a couple of comic books, the franchise is largely dead.

For two years now, Guitar Hero has ruled the music genre with a fret-blazing iron fist. That reign is now contested by Rock Band, which happens to come from the same guys who made Guitar Hero what it is today. Now that their creation is in the hands of another studio, who's to know which team brings the rock?
For the answer, we turn to our custom-built comparison videos that split the screen right down the middle - Guitar Hero III on the left, Rock Band on the right. The two games

So Ghostbusters is definitely happening. And we've captured the very first image. If you haven't already, give your nostalgia gland a poke by pointing your eyes downwards and rejoice in the knowledge that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is in the game.
The team is back together, with original actors Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson (the one that joins halfway through that no one really remembers even being there when they watched the movie back in 1984)

Inside an office in sunny Raleigh, North Carolina, Epic vice president Mark Rein settles back into a comfy seat. "It all started way back in the stone age," he begins. "You know, Tim Sweeney started the company in his parents' basement in Maryland." Today Epic is out of the basement and has the two monster-sized games Unreal Tournament 3 and Gears of War (PC) in development.
Outside of Mark's office, staff members play on the Epic basketball court, others help themselves to a
