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.

StarCraft Remastered announced for Summer 2017 release

Activision Blizzard will be releasing a remastered version of the original StarCraft game this summer.

The release reportedly features:

  • updated and enhanced graphics
  • Battle.net support
  • cloud saves
  • widescreen support up to 4K resolution
  • localization in 13 languages

The campaign will include all of the missions from the original release and the expansion pack, Brood War. The video above shows that this really is a facelift of the original game and not just a shoehorning of the old story into the StarCraft 2 game engine.

If you missed out on StarCraft 2, a new Battle Chest version is being released on March 31 (just a few days away!) containing all 3 campaigns (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void).

You can check out the press release for StarCraft Remastered after the jump.

The Disney Afternoon Collection Brings Home Nostalga This April


Older poweteers remember that during the 8 and 16 bit years, Capcom released several NES and SNES adaptations of various Disney properties of varying quality. The most well known of these games are a series of titles based upon Disney’s Weekday Afternoon cartoon block. This April, Capcom, along with Digital Eclipse, who released 2015’s Mega Man Legacy Collection, will release The Disney Afternoon Collection, a compilation of 6 NES games. The games include Duck Tales 1 and 2, Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers 1 and 2, Darkwing Duck, and Talespin. The games will feature a rewind button, concept art, boss rush, and time attack modes along with the original games. The compilation will be available on April 18th for $19.99 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No doubt this is going to bring back memories of after-school homework and cartoons for many a gamer.



Reservoir Dogs Video Game Take 2?


The original Reservoir Dogs was a heist movie that was also the first feature length film by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill, Django Unchained). The
last time there was a digital release of the film was a little over a decade ago in a forgettable Playstation 2 title. Later this year, Big Star Games (Fist of Jesus) will be releasing Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, a top down shooter for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game looks like it will take some inspiration from Devolver’s Hotline Miami with its top=down shooting and gory violence. A feature called ‘Time Back’ hopes to set it apart from the competition. Players will control a team of up to 3 robbers, one after another. Once one person makes their move, the game will rewind, and players will take control of the second robber while the first carries out the previous actions. It’s reminiscent to games like Super Time Force and Frozen Synapse. While the game will feature none of the actor’s voices, distributor Lionsgate (who holds the rights to the film) is working closely with the game’s developer and is working with Tarantino to ensure he approves of the game. Later this year we’ll see if Big Fish can do the film justice. At the least it can’t be worse than the last time Reservoir Dogs hit gaming systems.
