Most folks never got a chance to play Phantom Dust the first time around when it came out for the original Xbox in 2005. So, when Microsoft announced it was getting a remake at E3, a lot of people were confused. "What is Phantom Dust?," I heard a lot of people say. Well, wonder no more.

I went and busted out my old copy of Phantom Dust and made a video attempting to explain the game. I get into why it's brilliant, why it failed and why cult games like it will never truly go away.
