Episode 88 - Phantom Dust

14Nov

In this month's episode of the PlayCast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) discuss a game on the original XBox that many consider a "hidden gem."  Released as a means to increase XBox sales in Japan, Phantom Dust is a 3rd person arena battler with "card" mechanics. Join us as we discuss the game's complex gameplay mechanics and its unique graphical and musical styles.  In this month's Concertcast, the guys reveal their Top 6 tracks that celebrate life.  Is Phantom Dust the gem that others claim it to be, or is it better left in the dust?  Tune in and find out!  

As always, we are happy to hear your thoughts on the games we play on our discussion page (linked below). We will respond to your comments and are always happy to discuss the games in detail.
