Sword Art Online: Integral Factor guide - Beginner's tips that are integral to success

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 30th, 2018

Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is a new free-to-play multiplayer role-playing game that can be overwhelming. It combines a lot of systems from different kinds of games and lumps them in with the fourth-wall breaking world of Sword Art Online. Lukcy for you, we’ve banged our heads against Integral Factor’s systems and discovered a pretty good road map for getting you started. See below:

Re-rolling 101

The first thing you need to know about Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is that it’s a gatcha-style game. Also known as a game with “loot boxes,” Integral Factor relies on players spending a premium currency to get a chance at unlocking powerful, rare items. Luckily, Integral Factor provides players with a generous amount of premium currency to spend right away, so if you don’t like what you unlock from the start, you can re-roll, meaning you delete the game, re-download it, and try again. It may be a little time consuming, but it can let you get the items you want without having to spend money.

This turn-based strategy game isn't particularly complicated, but it's got a great concept and a lot of heart to make up for it.

How to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on September 1st, 2016

Naruto is a fine guy to have on your side in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing. It's his game and his franchise after all.

Still, the three- or four-star Naruto you have leading your team early on isn't necessarily going to cut it. Or at least, he'll need to rank up and be stronger to conquer the enemies you'll face later on.

So that leaves you with a couple of choices. Either make Naruto and the friends (and foes, in some cases) you find more powerful, or simply find some characters that are tougher.

Better yet, do both. We can help you, as we dive into how to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing tips, tricks, and hints

I'm not sure if it's possible to say you are an anime fan but also never have seen one episode of Naruto. If it is, then I resemble that remark, and if not, I offer a hearty apology.

Sometimes, though, playing games based on anime franchises without knowing the source material can actually be a boon, as it allows you to experience the narrative fresh. Such is the case with yours truly and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing. It's fun whether you already know the story or not.

It's also similar to but not exactly like other Bandai Namco mobile games based on popular anime properties. That doesn't mean it's exceptionally complex, just that it might help to read through our Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing tips, tricks, and hints to gain some more confidence that you're headed for ninja stardom.

What mobile games do anime fans have to look forward to next year?

Posted by Brittany Vincent on January 7th, 2016

There have been loads of games released over the past year inspired by classic or newly-released anime series.

Properties like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bleach also have new tie-in titles due this year, so it's easy to see why gamers who love Japanese animation are so excited about phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

This year we'll hopefully see anime-inspired games released globally rather than just in Japan. There's a huge global audience for Anime-related games, and it's getting bigger every day. Sadly though the spread of these games outside of the East doesn't look like it's going to gain pace.

Square Enix is releasing the company's classic role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 for smartphones as well as PS Vita, but it hasn't revealed whether it'll be available for global audiences just yet.

Crossy Road Devs Hipster Whale are Bringing PAC-MAN 256 to iOS Later This Year

Posted by Rob Rich on May 27th, 2015

Hipster Whale, the minds behind the rather popular (and rather great) Crossy Road, have teamed-up with Bandai Namco to create PAC-MAN 256: an absolutely bonkers looking maze runner chaser thing.

The new game turns a bug from the original PAC-MAN (and other early games in the franchise) into a feature by having players make a mad dash through an endless maze - with the infamous glitch in hot pursuit. Along with Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde of course. Coins and power-ups will also be available to help even the playing field a tiny bit (but not too much).

PAC-MAN 256 will be available on the App Store later this summer as a free download.

Posted by Ellis Spice on October 2nd, 2014

Bandai Namco Games America has unveiled that they have joined forces with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and as a result are launching the Ms. PAC-MAN Pink Ribbon Campaign.

At the base of the campaign is a new maze pack for Ms. PAC-MAN and PAC-MAN, titled the 'Hope Maze', with all purchases of the $0.99 pack going directly towards supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation. In addition, the in-game interface in both games will be going pink for the month of October.

NBCF Founder and CEO Janelle Hail had this to say on the campaign:

We are very excited about our new partnership with Bandai Namco and the Ms. PAC-MAN Pink Ribbon Campaign. By encouraging their gamers to Join the Pac, we can reach more women than ever with our message of hope. The funds they raise will allow us to provide early detection services for women in need in all 50 states.

Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man are both available on the App Store now for $3.99, with the 'Hope Maze' available as an in-app purchase in both games for $0.99.
