Most of the PC JRPGs are re-releases, though. I'm thinking more newer titles.

JRPGs? Like what? I can't even think of any that started on PC first. Western RPGs, for sure, but RPGs from the land of the rising sun? PC gaming is a fairly recent market trend for Japanese companies, I thought.

I completely understand the point of having a strong IP portfolio. But I don't think that Phantom Dust will do anything to contribute to Microsoft's portfolio of IPs at all other than being a sales failure and thus eventually languish. Microsoft has been doing great efforts in strengthening their IP portfolio in recent months, but this one IP doesn't make sense. There's a major difference between having strong IPs (Halo, Forza, Fable, Minecraft, Gears of War) and having IPs just for the sake of having IPs (like this game).

Well, I think most of us were talking about traditional JRPGs, but if you want to count MMOs and Kickstarter stuff, sure.

There is a big difference between the two, but they each have their places and points in existing, and it's something that all three platform holders do.

Xbox One
Three minutes of Darkside Games’ cancelled Phantom Dust reboot

Published 1 min ago. 0 comments.

Quote:
The Phantom Dust reboot that could have been.




Last month, news broke that Darkside Games, a Florida-based studio working on the Phantom Dust reboot for Xbox One, would be shut down and no longer develop the game. The reboot, however, is still in the works, albeit at a different studio (whether it be interally at Microsoft or externally at a second-party).
Kotaku obtained footage today of Darkside Games’ cancelled Phantom Dust, showing the “near-final” version of the game, which Darkside had shown Microsoft before their game was given the boot.
The three-minute video showcases a one-versus-one multiplayer battle, with a male player character dueling against Freia, from the original Phantom Dust.
“Each player would have an arsenal deck of cards (skills) they could mix and match to bring into a battle, but their cards/skills were randomly selected from the deck once in the battle,” the source who sent Kotaku the video said. “You’d have a starting hand (shown in the bottom right) and if you didn’t like that hand, you could do a re-roll at the start of the match. The orbs you pick up represent those cards/skills.”
According to the source, the original goal of the game was to keep 70 percent of the game true to the original Phantom Dust and make 30 percent of it new. But over time, it became more of an “85 percent remake, 15 percent new.”
The source continued, “I believe that the vertical slice we delivered was as good as anyone could have reasonably expected. It was very nearly E3 demo good, way beyond what a vertical slice should be. But apparently not good enough for [Microsoft]. And to hear them quickly say they’re finishing development elsewhere is certainly a slap.”
Watch the footage at Kotaku.

Phantom Dust was the beautiful little light at the end of a dark tunnel full of not a lot to play. I'm crossing my fingers they figure this out.

It's cancelled dude. The developers flat out said that Microsoft is not willing to shell out the money necessary to make the game that Microsoft wants. If Microsoft were willing to let Phantom Dust happen, they would have allowed Darkside to continue on with the work that they put into it. It's just like how Star Wars 1313 was never officially cancelled by Disney or StarCraft: Ghost was never officially cancelled by Blizzard or the Agent was never cancelled by RockStar.

19 minutes of Phantom Dust remaster gameplay, details
Published 2 hours ago. 10 comments.

First look at the remaster in action.






Polygon has gone up with 19 minutes of footage and first details on the upcoming Phantom Dust remaster for Xbox One and PC.
The Phantom Dust remaster moves from a 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9. On Xbox One, the game renders at 1080p, and on PC, it renders at 4K resolution.




Card data for every single one of the game’s skills is now stored on Microsoft’s server, allowing the company to rapidly push out patches and tweak the game balance in real-time.




Microsoft also made changes to the game’s single-player story progression, no longer preventing players from getting into the game’s core deck-building mechanic in the first few hours of the game. Additionally, if you fail any mission three times, you can skip it. You’ll still get rewards, but there are some achievements that are tied to not skipping and doing challenging things.




There will also be free and paid downloadable content. One of the first free downloadable add-ons will give you “a whole bunch of skills and an arsenal case” so you can jump straight into multiplayer with an assortment of cards to build decks from. There are also “a whole bunch of accelerants” for multiplayer, “so if you want all of the skills immediately, for a couple bucks, you can get all of the skills.”




Microsoft said it hasn’t changed anything about the way the original game works, and that downloadable content was just added for convenience.




Watch the gameplay below.

The game crosses the 1 million player mark.





Phantom Dust's Xbox One debut has been long in the making, being initially revealed back at E3 2014. The wait appears to have been worth it as Creative Director, Adam Isgreen announced over on the Phantom Dusted fan site that over one million players have played the game. That's quite the step up from the 50,000 that originally bought the game.
Isgreen also detailed a new update that is coming to the game, which includes a daily skill reward system. This new system allows players to unlock skills that were previously only available in the original game's expansion. All you have to do is log-in to one of your in-game profiles, and you will unlock a "free specific skill for that day."
Players can also unlock a bonus skill every week, so long as they log-in and play at least four times a week. If, however, you want to unlock all of the skills right away, you can buy three copies of all 74 of them for $4.99 as park of an "expansion skill pack."
Also included in the update is the return of in-game voice chat and an NPC Mission Guide to help streamline the game's campaign mode.
For a full patch notes list, you can head over to Phantom Dusted here.
