Power Button - Episode 361: Wandering Hyrule In The Legend of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Power ButtonLink and Princess Zelda are back in Hyrule for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the Nintendo Switch which means that so are we, and we're spending this episode's discussion talking about my time spent wandering around Hyrule seeing the sights and checking out whatever interests me without accomplishing any of the story which means there are no spoilers in this episode.  We'll circle back to the meaty stuff later.  This week is all exploratory fluff.  Download this week's episode directly from PTB, listen with the player below, find us on Stitcher, subscribe via iTunes, Amazon Music Podcasts, and Google Podcasts, toss this RSS feed into your podcast aggregation software of choice, and be sure to catch up on past episodes if you're joining us late.

Ghostbusters: Special Edition Hack Adds New Characters And Surprises

Ghostbusters: Special EditionThe famed Ghostbusters franchise has spawned many video games over the years ranging from the original 1984 business simulator from Activision to last year's Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed for modern platforms, but one of the games that tends to be forgotten is a 1990 title for the Sega Genesis developed by Compile.  Titled simply Ghostbusters, the game is a basic action platformer featuring an original story in which players can choose between Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz to walk, jump, and shoot through a series of standard 2D levels, as was the style at the time.  It's a fun diversion, but fans noticed the absence of the fourth member of the team, Winston Zeddemore, who is entirely missing from this adventure.  Now, decades later, game hackers BillyTimeGames!, Linkuei, and Danielo Dias have worked together to create a special edition of the Genesis game that not only adds Winston into the mix with his own unique graphics and moves, but also adds a built-in save feature, new uniform colors, a more challenging difficulty level for those who want it, secret cheat codes, and even the fifth Ghostbuster himself, Louis Tully, as an extra playable character (his stats are the worst of everyone)!  Check out the to learn how to apply the patch file to the game and give this expanded experience a try.
