Phantom Dust
« on: April 10, 2005, 03:26:16 PM »

Alrighty, I just ordered a copy through GR, so I should have it in a couple of days.  I like what I've read from various reviews.  I was HUGE into Magic: The Gathering back in the mid-90s as well, so the card collecting aspect appeals to me as well.

Allen, I know you have it.  Care to comment?  I'll be looking for a few matches within the week.  And yes, it is 4-players on Live, so it'd be great to find a couple other people to get a full match going.

I have it, though Half-Life 2, Worms 3D and City of Heroes haven't let me put as much time into it as I'd like.  I'd be happy to join in on some multiplayer, though I have no arsenal to speak of.

From the few missions I've played, it seems like a really cool, deep game. It will be nice to attempt this game online with new players of similar skill. I know Lord Darkness and Orpheus play the hell out of it and will seriously kick our asses. And don't let blackcalx plead newbie status on this one. When he's on Live, he's playing this game. Maybe he can show us the ropes, without hanging us, then we can take on the masters.

I believe you don't need to play offline to have an arsenal, it's just filled with random items. If you get deep into the single-player though, you have access to many more weapons.

Jeremy, I also have Magic: The Gathering: Battlegrounds if you'd care to pick that one up as well and cement your uber-nerd status.

I just picked this and Chaos Theory up today. I work FT, go to school nearly FT and have a three year old, so I get to play games like 30 minutes/month, but my tag is Nexteller and if anyone sees me on give me an invite :)

Funny you say that, Allen, because I haven't played Phantom Dust in two weeks.  The last few times I've been on Live have been for Chaos Theory and Worms 3D.

I got sick while playing Phantom Dust and I can't quite get over the association yet.  I think of Phantom Dust and my stomache twists a bit.

My copy should ship today, so hopefully I'll be online with it this coming weekend.  Then, truly, my pitiful skillz will be on display for all to see!

If I can find this locally, maybe I'll pick it up.  I haven't heard much of anything negative about it.

PD arrived yesterday.  Excellent game so far!  I spent a couple hours going through the tutorials and progressing through the campaign.  I believe I'm part way through chapter 2.  Looking forward to building up my bag of tricks a little more and facing you guys online.  Let's schedule some matches soon.

I've had my copy for a week or two now, haven't tried it out yet though.   I'll have to give it a go when I get back into town next week.  Don't want to be left in the dust...

Had some great matches the other night guys.  Allen, play some single player so you can use your own arsenal.  Looking forward to more soon.  Amazing game!!

I will try to give this some time this weekend.  If I do, it would be nice to get an online game going, maybe Saturday?

I'd be up for some this weekend.  Have you played any of the campaign, Matt?  Once you make it to Chapter 3, you'll be able to use custom arsenals online as opposed to random ones.  I'm going to try and progress a little further over the next couple of nights.

Haven't even started the game yet.  I've been kind of busy the last couple of weeks so I've had less time for games that usual.  This weekend I don't have much on my plate other than taking my stepson to a movie.  I'll have a custom arsenal soon enough, so be ready.
