AR or VR enthusiasts have the choice of playing two versions of Ghostbusters World. Adaptations of this franchise have manifested in many forms and the part many gamers get the most thrill from is in blasting a ghost and sending them to the aether. Well, to put ’em into a trap. From the Commodore 64 game to PlayStation 3, I have almost played them all. None can be as exhilarating as having that right first person shooter perspective.

With this new game by Sony, Ghost Corps, 4:33, and Next Age, the idea is almost there.

Exploring the Talent of Dan Schoening, Artist at Large

Dan Schoening is a talented artist based out of Victoria, British Columbia who has progressed far since graduating from Camosun College‘s Visual Arts program. Not only is the main artist for IDW’s Ghostbusters, but also he does work for InLight Entertainment, a local indie video game developer. But his resume does not end there. He’s done illustrations for (to name a few) Random House, DC Comics and APE Entertainment.

He’s also very active in the social media front, posting new pictures on deviantART and Twitter. But this is a man who simply loves to draw and to see him pursue his dream and make convention appearances is one of simple pleasure. Business is good for him, and it is a place for him to meet and interact with his fans. He has appeared at many shows, including Emerald City Comicon in the past and will be attending Capital City Comic Con, taking place March 16-18th, 2018! As I predicted way before this event made any official news, any resident artists of this city will be present for this inaugural show.
