I ain't afraid of no Ghost Squad

I ain't afraid of no Ghost Squad

Sega have announced they'll be releasing their shooter Ghost Squad on the Wii later this year.

To my dismay, Ghost Squad isn't about tackling ghosts. It's to do with the special forces, a light-gun game where you shoot wrongdoers and defuse bombs. Up until now it has been an arcade release.

Ghost Squad on the Wii is said to support online play and up to 4 players at once. It's penned for release in Europe later this year. At ease.

That is not correct grammar. It should be: I am not afraid of any ghosts.

Sega, make good games. And yes, your grammar sucks.

This game was released in Arcades previously and the graphics in the Wii version are slightly downgraded. Do not expect the graphics to be anything special! They are very simple, however, the game looks like it is well put together and may end up being a sleeper hit. For everyone who still doesn't know what "On Rails" means, it means that the player is stuck to a pre-defined course to follow through the level. That's right! You cannot choose where to move. I will admit I don't prefer this game style but if you are willing to overlook that for the simple, classic fun of a light gun game this will probably be a worthy purchase for you. Just don't expect Ghost Recon.

Spilntercell4ever, he's quoting from the Ghostbusters theme song :). Anyway, this game looks like it could be pretty good, I always love light gun games. Nice to hear it supports four players and online play too.

Never really thought about this until now, but was there ever a Ghostbusters game? With the right elements it could be awesome.

I think it's meant to be a play on words to the Ghostbusters theme song by Ray Parker. The "I ain't afraid of no ghosts" part maybe?

Yea BonbonJoe there was a Ghostbusters game, back in the 1980s when they were popular (for machines like Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC etc). It was good, for the time of course. Hehe @ some people trying to correct the grammar on this news.

I ain't afraid of no ghost is correct since the writer is trying to quote part of the chorus from the ghostbusters movie soundtrack. noob.

Too bad, you should use correct grammar at all times. By the way, how long have you been on this forum. It is not right for you to call other people noobs when you just got here.

Yeah, I agree with superwiidude, phire, kaos; etc. If you say that those words above are bad grammar, you must've never seen the movie Ghostbusters, or heard the song before.

If it was previously an arcade title, wouldn't it make more sense releasing it on the Virtual Console instead?

The file is probably way too huge to simply download. My guess is it's easily over 700 Megs. Sega also wants to release it at full price. It is being re-made for Wii. It isn't a direct port.

Well it wouldn't have a section, unless they made an arcade section.

An arcade section sounds like a good idea.
