Phantom Dust HD Remaster Released On Xbox One and PC Today…For FREE!

Phantom Dust was an Xbox game that merged card-collecting with arena combat. Although it was fairly well received (especially in Japan), it never took off, becoming a cult classic of sorts. Microsoft had announced a reboot at 2014’s e3, but it ended up being cancelled. Fortunately Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer and lead developer Yukio Futatsugi still had love for the series, and therefore an HD remaster of the game for Xbox One and PC was announced at last year’s E3. While information about the re-release was scarce, Microsoft Game Studios guaranteed that the game would be released before e3, and lo and behold, MS stayed true to its word. Not only that, Phantom Dust is free! The game contains a single player story mode, Xbox Live Anywhere, and a starter deck for multiplayer, so fans can jump into multiplayer right from the get-go (rather than having to unlock cards like in the original Xbox game). Hopefully a second lease on life for this game will allow it to gain the audience it deserves, or better yet, lead to another attempt at a reboot. Expect to see more about the game on an upcoming $20 Game of the Week.



You Have Until Monday to Get Alan Wake Before It’s Gone (For Now)

Remedy has recently announced that they are pulling down Alan Wake from Xbox Live, Steam, and all other digital stormfronts and recalling it from storeshelves on Monday May 15 due to licensing issues. If you played the game you already know the game contains music from David Bowe, Depeche Mode, and Old Gods of Asgard (Poets of the Fall). Because music is such an integral part to the experience, Remedy can’t simply remove the songs from the game. Remedy is looking into re-licensing the songs, however it’s unknown when of if it will be possible. If you haven’t played this classic yet, Steam has it, its DLC, and the side game American Nightmare on sale with the entire collection available for $4. It should be noted that this does not affect American Nightmare, as it will still remain on the storefront. Also, if you already own the digital copy of the game, be it on Steam or Xbox Live, you can still download it after next Monday. If you haven’t played this game, now is the perfect time to do so. It’s a highly underrated game that didn’t get the attention that it deserved.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Story Trailer


Ever since MVC Infinite was revealed late last year, information about the game has been scarce. However, yesterday Capcom revealed part of the game’s story in the trailer above. Ultron and Sigma use the Infinity Stones to merge and create a new world. Surprising, as the story is all but nonexistent in most Capcom fighters, including MVC. The trailer also reveals several characters being a part of the game’s cast: The Hulk, Strider, Chun-li, Chris Redfield, Rocket Raccoon, Hawkeye, and Thor. Still an alarming lack of mutants however, and we’ve yet to see anyone completely new to MVC besides Captain Marvel, Ultron, and Sigma. No doubt we’ll see more in the coming months. For now, check out the trailer, and tell us what you think. MvC Infinite hits Xbox One, PS4, and PC on September 19th.

This past week Marvel gave us a first look at its upcoming Cloak and Dagger series on ABC Freeform. It’s a teen drama set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Olivia Holt (Kickin It, Girl vs Monster) and Aubrey Joseph (Run All Night, The Night Of) as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson respectively. In the comics, Cloak and Dagger are two teen runaways who were exposed to drugs that gave them access to their mutant powers, with Cloak able to surround himself in a ‘cloak’ of darkness and Dagger able to create daggers of hard light. The duo made their debut in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64, and have shown up in Runaways, X-Men, and the ‘Marvel Knights’. The show will air its 10-episode season next-year.
