That’s right, New Coke is back, courtesy of a partnership between Coca-Cola and Netflix, which is hoping to build anticipation for its third season of its flagship sci-fi series with the release of a limited number of New Coke cans. But judging by the history of the drink, they probably won’t be flying off the shelves.

Back in 2009, the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters was celebrated in a big way with the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. At the time, the video game was a big deal because Atari was able to round up all of the original Ghostbusters cast members to reprise their roles.

But for Ghostbusters fans, with all the wisecracking from almost all the movie’s original cast and the ability to become one of the Ghostbusters in a video game for the then-current generation of video games was still pretty cool. But now fans may have an opportunity to give it another chance since it would appear that a remastered re-release of the game is coming soon. Read More »
