I read somewhere that they were going to make nods to fan films so I'd say that's a pretty safe bet. Good eye man!

You wouldn't be able to get a source on that, could you? I just want to know if this is an authentic nod to the fan film or somethng else.

Egon's nephew from RotGB was made up. There was no official "Ed" in GB canon if I recall.

So if this is true, then it's awesome beyond belief!

An employee of Terminal Reality who posts over a ghostbusters.net (SN: Skankerzero) confirmed that this was a nod to RotGB.

Over on Ghostbusters.net Skankerzero, lead character artist for Terminal Reality, had this to say:
Since the project is almost done, I've been spending my time populating the Firehouse set. I put a couple nods in there for 'Return of the Ghostbusters' and other things you'll have to look for.

I dunno...is this a slight nod to RotGB in GB:VG?

The note says:

"To Uncle Egon, From Ed"
haha! that was me posting that! I am icecoldinalex by night. I had already flagged this in the Vigo video thread, but maybe it got a bit buried there. :)

I can't wait to try and pinpoint all these "nods" to the fans. We'll have to look hard to see if they threw in any GBFans references! :cool:

Well have to make a definitive list once the game comes out, i am glad they decided to make the firehouse a freeroam hub area in between levels ,with all these nods.

On a side note: At a fast glance doesn't that picture look like an obscene drawing? (Superbad style)

Jesse (a.k.a skankzero) also mentioned that in the opening scene from the game that will be revealed Thursday, he is actually the security guard watching the monitors. :cool:

God why couldn't I have gotten my movie out before the game kicked off?! Kind of thought the intro cinematic had some resemblences to one of my earlier Hellbent trailers...i.e dark room centered with a TV playing the generic GB advert...nothing past that though. Besides, pretty basic concept I guess.

There's no guarentee you would've gotten a nod even if you had gotten it out sooner. Hank's films are viewed as two of the best Ghostbusters Fanfilms ever. And I'm not sure they way the intro went was inspired by one of your films trailers. As cinematic setups go it's a rather old concept.

Agreed^^^^^. It would have to be one hell of a fan film, as were Hank's two films, to get a mention. I just wonder if they make any references to Freddy Krueger. Probably not with all the copyrights in place.
