The folks over at Eurogamer have asked an interesting question in the latest episode of Here's a Thing: What happens to your Steam account when you eventually bite the dust? Where do all of those cherished digital games actually go? Can you leave them to someone in your will, as you could with any physical media library, or are they destined to float around in the void until humanity meets what we're assuming will be a fairly sticky end? It's a curious thought experiment. After all, as enter the digital age, it's highly likely that by the time some of us meet our maker, we'll have amassed a virtual library of considerable personal and monetary value. In the case of Steam, the subscriber agreement suggests that it'd be near-impossible for account users to leave their collection to another person when they shuffle off this mortal coil. The document states that Steam accounts are "strictly personal, … [Read more...] about What happens to your Steam collection when you die?
Once you've finished the campaign in Destiny 2 and wondered what the heck that ending was all about, it's time to start the real grind as you work your way towards major post-story activities like Strikes and Raids. After you've reached Level 20 by working your way through the story, you've actually hit Level cap. However, there's plenty more levelling to do, as you'll want to try and get your Power Level as high as you can to have the best chance at getting good loot. But that doesn't mean you're not still earning XP with every kill or activity. In fact, there's a whole new levelling system that gets you shiny things called Bright Engrams. Those glowy white orbs, along with Bright Dust, won't boost your Power Level, but if you're as obsessed with Destiny 2 as we are, you're going to want them.Destiny 2 guide: complete campaign walkthrough and guideHow to complete Destiny 2's Leviathan raidHow to get Bright EngramsEvery time you level up after hitting Level 20 you'll actually … [Read more...] about How to get Bright Engrams and Bright Dust in Destiny 2?
Sometimes there's nothing better than revisiting an Xbox old game you love. Sure, they rarely quite live up to modern standards, but they can be like a comforting digital hug thanks to the familiar surroundings and sense of nostalgia. Other times it's just nice to treat yourself to a bit of a history lesson for a classic that you've missed. After all, there are so many that deserve a second chance, perhaps all gussied up with an HD touch-up and some extra little treats. So with that in mind I recently decided to pick up Phantom Dust, since a fair few people had raved about the original and how 'unique' it is. I figured I'd discover something new by playing it and maybe learn a thing or two about games from that era. But all I did was leave disappointed.

This year's Summer of Arcade promotion hasn't quite lived up to the reputation of past years, but at least it's going out with a bang. The annual promotion wrapped up with the release of Dust: An Elysian Tail, which is easily the best selection of the five featured titles. Designed by Dean Dodrill, Dust is about as close to a "one-man" project as you can get. Dodrill hired out the audio work and voice acting and got publishing assistance from Microsoft, but the core of the game was programmed solely by Dodrill. This includes everything from the silky-smooth 60 frames-per-second animation to the varied quests and hyper-kinetic combat system. Dust is a labor of love, and it shows. You play as the title character in Dust. Waking up in the forest, you have no memory of your past. Dust's only companions are a talking sword named Ahrah and Fidget, the sarcastic (yet loyal) support character. The trio makes for an interesting bunch, with Ahrah being the wizened serious one, Dust the man … [Read more...] about XBLA Review – ‘Dust: An Elysian Tail’

The smell of gunpowder in the air. The sound of your ears ringing while someone helps you to your feet. The sight of a fighter jet rocketing into space - wait, what? Yup, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has gone full sci-fi and headed to the stars as Infinity Ward drops 2013's Ghosts in favour of an interstellar war with an angry Jon Snow and Conor 'You'll do nutin' McGregor.

Phantom Dust is a strange beast. It grips you with excellent presentation, CGI sequences, and premise, hinting that the game will perhaps be a fast-paced action game, or RPG with a sci-fi theme and uniquely drawn characters. Once into the game, you realize that it is quite unlike anything you've ever played; it is, acutely, in a unique genre all to itself. Though gamers might compare it to Phantasy Star Online Episode III: C.A.R.D. Revolution, making that comparison is selling it short. The only thing Dust has in common with PSOEIII: C.A.R.D. is a similar element of strategy. Combining elements from table top card games like Magic The Gathering, videogames like Pokemon, and loosely utilizing the combat scheme from Virtual On, Phantom Dust is in a category all to itself. Phantom Dust is a collectible-type game played in real-time with destructible arenas, special abilities, and action/adventure elements (and a lot of dialogue) thrown in the mix. Think of it less as a mutt, and rather as … [Read more...] about GamesFirst! Phantom Dust Phantom Dust
