All the card data is stored on the cloud, they can modify the game at any time which is interesting.

They can try and make me!

I'll probably get the game anyway, though.

I'm curious what they ended up doing with the online since this thing is purported to have that Arena integration which I guess means they touched something in the game's online backend.

Hoping for a smooth party system that let's me easily 2v2 randos with a friend, but expecting original Xbox server list jank.

The old Xbox live has been completely replaced with the newest iteration, so you've got nothing to worry about.

The thing is though, that the way Adam Isgreen was talking on the Polygon interview about how reverse engineering the game limited what they could actually change, makes me worried that they had to keep all the same menus and systems for how you search/create matches. That and we haven't actually seen anything from the online.

Hope you're right, though.

Oh, in that case yeah everything is gonna be the same as it was back in 2004, except now a lot prettier.

Except now you can do LFG posts and Arena tournaments.

It should be going up for download sometime today. When it goes up you will be able to find it on the Xbox One store or the Windows 10 store.

It's good just don't expect some hyper speed crazy game, it's fairly medium paced and at the start as you are getting things built up pretty slow. It's pretty much a card game played on foot with the cards being actions

Both the gameplay and story are exceptional. Just don't expect a traditional RPG structure cuz exploration is pretty much non-existent.

Great, can't wait to finally complete this game. I started it back on OG Xbox but never got around to completion.

Really hope this gets the interest and sequel it deserves. I honestly think Phantom Dust will be a hit if given the right budget and talent.

Should be. It's a port of a 13 year old game, it doesn't need a beefy pc.

Arena isn't there at launch. It is something that they want to do.
