The Coming StormEdit
The Ghostbusters return to the Firehouse. Ray Stantz wants to call Mayor Jock Mulligan and tell him to call off the evacuation of Manhattan. Something is wrong. Janine Melnitz comes to but Ilyssa Selwyn is gone. Janine remembers it was chaos and ghosts were flying everywhere. Egon Spengler implored her to slow down and start from the beginning. Janine remembered somebody jumped her from behind and she passed out as she heard Ilyssa struggling and yelling. The last thing she remembered was the screams of the dead and damned echoing in her brain. Someone shut down the containment grid again. Winston recalled that's what Walter Peck threatened to do. Peter was surprised Peck turned out to be an evil occultist. As they pondered where Peck could have taken Ilyssa, a radio report came on. Increasingly powerful tremors were rocking Central Park. The Ghostbuster headed out.
Central Park has been transmogrified into the cemetery of the Cult of Gozer. The Ghostbusters can't proceed because the gates are locked. Ray elects the Rookie to go over and open the gates from the inside. He's worried the energy of the escaped ghosts might be enough to produce a cross-dimensional event in itself. Go right and look for a small set of graves. Equip the Paragoggles and it becomes clear they can be manipulated. Slime all the graves then switch to Capture Stream. When you slam one, a Dancing Skeletons will rise and do a dance. Rookie will have to match the skeletons in pairs based on a matching dance move. The first skeleton in the front row is paired with the last in the front row. The second from the left in the front row is paired with the third from the left in the back row. The second from the left in the back row is paired with the last in the second row. The gates will open up.
As everyone searches the immediate area, several gates jut up and separate the Rookie and Ray from the others. Go to the next section of the cemetery and look for a single gravestone. Slime it and slam it. An underground tunnel will be revealed. Run after the Grave Scuttlers. A two step strategy of using Stasis Stream and Shock Blast will disperse them effectively. Proceed through the tunnel until a cavern is reached. There will be several places boarded up. Look for one area with a skull in front of it. Shoot only that one. The others release Grave Scuttlers. Take the path back out onto the cemetery.
There is a path guarded by two Gargoyles. Destroy them with Boson Darts. The path will lead to another section. A swarm of Flaming Skulls will attack. Take them out with the Shock Blast. Continue on. The next area is sealed with Spirit Locks. Three Gravedigger Ghosts will appear and split up. Equip the Paragoggles and follow their trail carefully. The area is rigged with Ghost Snares. Luckily, the Rookie will be on the right track when fences jut out of the ground and act as a "guide" of sorts. At the end of the trail are Imp Demons and one of the Graveyard Ghosts. Ignore the ghost and focus on the demons. Freeze them with the Stasis Stream then shatter with Shock Blast. Zap and trap the Graveyard Ghost. One of the Spirit Locks will dissipate. Return back to the area with all the Ghost Snares then go left as you enter. With the Paragoggles, another spectral trail should come up. As you go along, more gates will rise up. Watch out for Flaming Skulls and Grave Scuttlers along the way.
The second Graveyard Ghost is accompanied by Grave Scuttlers. Disperse the Scuttlers then trap the ghost. Backtrack to the Snare area. Make a left at the entrance/exit point, and equip the Paragoggles to pick up the last ghost's trail. It will be accompanied by Gargoyles. Destroy them with either the Boson Darts or Shock Blast then trap the ghost. Follow the trail through the unlocked doorway into a mass grave site. A Gozerian Servitor will manifest and attack. Leave Ray to fend off the Servitor and destroy the Grave Scuttlers that have also awakened. From a safe distance, unleash Boson Darts on the Servitor. When it reaches into the ground to regenerate, switch to Capture Stream and slam his hands. Back off and repeat with Boson Darts and destroying Scuttlers. Most likely, the strategy will have to be broken off temporarily to revive Ray. Once the Servitor is defeated, the path will open up.
Follow the winding walkway into a long corridor and head past the rows of Stone Cherubs. There will be a Non-Anthropomorphic Conglomerate (giant boulder) propped up with a coffin. Slime the coffin then wrangle it away. The Conglomerate will roll down the corridor and crash into the far wall. The Stone Cherubs will animate and attack. Focus on destroying the Cherubs with Boson Darts then switch to the Stasis Stream-Shock Blast strategy on the Imp Demons. Once they are defeated, the Ghostbusters are reunited at the end of the corridor.
Winston wonders why this is all still happening. The Mandala was shut down. Ray recalled a passage in the Gozerian Codex. A blood sacrifice and a tremendous amount of spiritual energy are needed to generate the Supreme Destructor Form. Egon theorized Peck couldn't draw sufficient energy from the Mandala before it was shut down so he chose the Containment Unit as an alternate source. The door to Shandor's mausoleum is missing and sealed off. Equip the Paragoggles and follow the spectral trail to a long corridor guarded by Grave Scuttlers. Destroy them then follow the corridor down to a courtyard. Three Stone Elementals will animate and attack along with Gargoyles. Run away from the Elementals and destroy the Gargoyles first. Switch to Stasis Stream and blast the Elementals. Nail them with Boson Darts then wrangle them apart. They were guarding a piece of the door. Switch to Capture Stream and pick up the stone slab at the center of the courtyard and take it back to the mausoleum. Affix it to the doorway and it will lock into place.
Turn around and locate another piece. Slime it then pick it up with the Capture Stream. Several Cultist Ghosts will attack. Slime them first to neutralize their Black Slime then trap them. Place the piece into the doorway. Equip the Paragoggles and look for another spectral trail. It will lead to crypts with a gated structure in the center. Look around. Each corner of the area is adorned with statues with their arms outstretched. Slime the statues then switch to Capture Stream and move each one towards the center at the gates. The gates should drop and reveal a third piece of the doorway. Slime it and carry it to the doorway. Return to the same area and look for a corridor. It will lead to the rear of the Necropolis. Suffice to say, it will be a fight to get the last piece. Gravedigger Ghosts will attack. Trap the ones wearing pinstripe suits first as they attack with shovels. To thin out the group faster, a shot of the Stasis Stream will slow them down.
Once the ghosts are trapped, Imp Demons will attack. Use the Stasis Stream-Shock Blast combo on the two waves. A Grave Golem will animate next and it has the last piece on its back. Nail the Golem with the Stasis Stream then focus on destroying the rest of the Imp Demons. Pelt the Golem with Boson Darts then wrangle its weak points apart. Grab the last piece and place into the doorway. The Ghostbusters head into the mausoleum.
Peter spots Ilyssa and goes to free her. Peck is above her, but bound as well. Peter preferred to play it safe and blast him anyway. Egon belays that and points out Peck was being used. Mayor Mulligan appears and confirms it. Ivo Shandor was possessing him all along. When the Mandala was shut down, he indeed had the Containment Unit shut down to use the energy and kidnapped Ilyssa. He needed blood of a Shandor to assume his own Destructor Form and Ilyssa was all that remained. Ray was confused about Gozer's purpose. Shandor tired of his defeats and decided to grab the power for himself. Peter heard enough and the Rookie slimed the Mayor, forcing Shandor out.
Ivo Shandor splits into four beings. Take cover behind one of the beams. Wait for the four projections to reform and then use the Stasis Stream to immobilize Shandor then use Boson Darts to damage him. Take cover and wait for him to reform again. Once his health is down, Shandor can't generate his shield. Switch to the Capture Stream and slam him into the portal in the middle of the floor. Ray orders everyone to de-activate their pulse and cross the streams with the blast function. However, the streams won't cooperate. Shandor is still too powerful. The Ghostbusters get pulled into the portal.
They arrive in the Ghostworld. Race up the stairs. Shandor has taken on his Destructor Form, "The Architect," and creates a throne to sit on. Peter pauses then proceeds to heckle Shandor. Ray and Egon are alarmed by the implications of Shandor's title. As the Architect, he can control the Ghostworld. If he crosses over to the physical plane, he can remake the universe in his image.
Shandor surrounds himself with a giant stone mask covered in Black Slime. Watch out for lasers and use the Capture Stream or Boson Darts to remove pieces of the mask and weaken it. Then use the Proton Stream and Boson Darts to disperse the mask's P.K. energy. Once Shandor is exposed, hit him with Boson Darts. When the mask reforms, Shandor also generates floating hands. Ignore them, and continue attacking the mask until you can damage Shandor again.
When the mask returns again, it will be covered in Black Slime; use the Slime Mine to remove it and wrangle the mask again. Stop only to neutralize any Black Slime. When the mask appears for the third time, it will have shield-generating obelisks on either side. Use the Stasis Stream to freeze them and the Shock Blast to destroy them. Continue to weaken the mask and blast Shandor until he falls to the ground. He refuses to capitulate and tries to rush the guys. They wrangle him in Capture Streams.
Egon orders everyone to cross the streams. Ray gestures Rookie to join in. All five Proton Streams are crossed and Shandor is destroyed. The force of the explosion forces the Ghostbusters back into the physical plane. Ilyssa comes to. Peter picks her up from the altar. He informs her she's a descendant of Shandor. Ray and Winston help Mayor Mulligan up to his feet. Mayor Mulligan is happy to see the Ghostbusters then realizes he doesn't know where is. Ray tells him he was the victim of a trans-dimensional possession. Winston translated that an evil ghost was walking around in his body for a few months. Mulligan asked if anyone noticed then worried about his approval rating. Egon pointed out he was re-elected during the possession. The mausoleum started to rumble. They proceeded to leave. Peck asked for help getting down. Egon and Peter play deaf. Mulligan didn't think they would really leave him behind. The energy holding up Peck dispersed and he fell to the ground.
Back at the Firehouse, the Ghostbusters reflected on their latest victory. Ray pointed out things were gonna be a little slow for a while. Winston furthered the discussion hinting they would be heavy one too many Ghostbusters in New York. Ilyssa objected to the Rookie getting fired since all five Ghostbusters saved the world. Peter assured her they weren't. He revealed Louis Tully had been out of state scouting locations and offered a potentially lucrative Ghostbusters franchise in either Chicago, Los Angeles, or Cincinnati. Peter volunteered to pick a choice. As the Ghostbusters waited for the Rookie's answer, Slimer interrupted and flew around. Rookie went back to work trying to recapture Slimer.
