We had some awesome guests on this week's Retail Therapy as HungryCorean returned and Retro808 shop owner, JC made his debut! Rodney asked plenty of interesting questions. Here's an example:
The Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed game is finally out in the wild and I thought it was interesting watching the teamwork but also som eof the ghost gameplay. You can take a look yourself in this extended clip below.
Check out the Ghostbusters team in action as well.
And Now...The Internet
So I guess this M3GAN movie is basically Child's Play for a new generation.
The trailer dropped a couple days ago and the internet has been having a lot of fun.

This statue is reigniting the Zelda hype for me quite a bit.

Ed Boon has been dropping some knowledge lately with it being the 30th anniversary of Mortal Kombat.
I do remember us making the decision to not darken the screen because Liu Kang was "pure of heart" or something.🤣— Ed Boon (@noobde) October 14, 2022
Looking back, I wish we did more by either...
- making victim's head explode
- making victim's body explode
- launching victim into the air, body parts rain down https://t.co/YoeeNsDQgk
This was pretty impressive. Oh, the nostalgia is real!

Well this is pretty cool. I think Travis Touchdown would be a sweet guest character in a fighting game.

The Cartoon Network thing was way over blown. People were laid off and lost their jobs. That's sad and I hope they find jobs easily and quickly but Cartoon Network or any of the animation studios at WB are shutting down. It was a merger of divisions within WB and it was planned years ago. Though I'm pretty sure the cuts were higher than expected due to Papa Zaslav.
