Quoted from JodyG:

He wouldn't even acknowledge there was a mode missing. He said it was a mistake to list it.

Quoted from Allibaster:

It's on the freaking instruction card! It's insulting to owners to say there was never supposed to be a final wizard mode. What a joke.

I dont have a Ghostbusters as I was never a fan of how it shot. I hear everyone complain about a missing wizard mode that is shown on the instruction card. I also heard the Dwight interview on H2H.

I decided to take a closer look at the instruction card to see what the the fuss was about. Here's what I see at the end of the card I see:

"We're ready to believe you: Complete the NINE scenes to start this wizard mode."

"We came, we saw, we kicked its.... Capture GHOSTS to start this wizard mode."

"Are you a god? : Be good at everything"

I see two clearly marked wizard modes. Why does everyone assume "Are you a god" is a third wizard mode? It's not listed as a wizard mode like the other two are.

After hearing the Dwight interview it's clear to me that he put the final line on the card as a nod to the classic quote from the film. I interpret it as simply stating that your are god-like if you can complete everything on the card and do it well.

If it was intended to be a wizard mode wouldnt it have specifically said it was one like the other two did?

Quoted from Spelunk71:

The electronic menu options contain references to “Are you a god?” so clearly it was meant to be a separate mode before it was scrapped at some point.

I guess that adds even more confusion as to what the original intentions were. Based on the recent interview though Dwight said it was never intended to be a wizard mode so I dont think people should hold out hope to get it added as one.

I guess this is a good example to not buy a pin unless you are happy with the current code it has at the time if purchase. Dont buy it with the hope of getting better code later because you might get disappointed in the long run.

I made that mistake myself by pre-ordering a Batman66 LE on theme alone prior to playing one. However, I got lucky as it turned out to be awesome by the time Lyman was done with it. Going forward though I wont buy a game until I've played it and judge it by the current code it has.

Quoted from stevevt:

What you're describing is not luck.

That's true, Lyman is a great coder and I enjoy pretty much all of his games.

But like it says in the fine print of your 401k statements:

"Past performance is no guarantee of future results."
