Deus Ex GO tips, tricks, and hints

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: :: Read Review »

When Square Enix Montreal first hit us with Hitman GO,it was seen as a clever board game twist on a property that you wouldn't normally think would fit that kind of format. Lara Croft GOexpanded things even further while keeping some of the same core gameplay elements, and now Deus Ex GO has taken the whole thing and gone sci-fi.

For fans of the previous games, much will feel familiar this time around, yet there will still be plenty to discover by trial and error -- probably the biggest unifying element throughout this multi-IP series. Added to that are the brand new goodies the developers have cooked up, and there are a number of them in what is the most intricate GO title to date.

That being the case, it doesn't hurt to have some help on your side. We're not talking about cool tech and hacking skills, though those certainly don't hurt. No, we simply mean someone to show you the ropes, and that's what we're happy to do with these Deus Ex GO tips, tricks, and hints.

Championship Manager 17 guide for beginners

No matter how good you are at football management games, no one is ever going to let you take the reins at Manchester United or Chelsea. It's simply not in the cards for us mere mortals.

The next best thing, other than screaming at your television and participating in all the #WengerMustGo hashtags, is to take a stab at being a skipper in the virtual realm. On mobile, the latest option is Championship Manager 17 from Square Enix.

While it's not quite as packed with features as similar sims on the PC, it's as close to a full management experience as possible in the sense that you must juggle a roster on a budget, keep an eye out for transfers that will strengthen your team, take control of strategic decisions during matches, and handle player morale and negotiations, all while trying to win glory and avoid being sacked.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, we've got some good news. We can help you take your first steps toward becoming the next Sir Alex (as if) with our Championship Manager 17 guide for beginners. Read on for the equivalent of that scene in The Matrix, except instead of Keanu Reeves saying, "I know kung fu," it'll be you saying, "I know football."

How to get better cards in Mobius Final Fantasy

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on August 8th, 2016

When it comes to authentic Final Fantasy flavor, it's easy to find in Mobius Final Fantasy. The cryptic story and graphical style hit you right from the start, and you don't have to play for too long before you run into a Moogle, Cactuars, and plenty of other instantly familiar touches.

There's a lot that is new as well. One aspect of the gameplay that stands out as something that series veterans may not grasp but that mobile gamers in general should find comfortable is the card-based system that specifies what abilities you bring into combat and how generally tough your character is as well.

It's not a super complicated system, but neither is it immediately obvious how one goes about acquiring better cards to have your character fully prepared for the challenges that are waiting down the road (pretty literally, in the case of this particular game). With that in mind, we thought we'd lay out all the ways you have to improve your cards in Mobius Final Fantasy, the better to have the best possible deck.

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.

The App Store is no stranger to the Dragon Quest series, and has had its fair share of ports for quite some time. That tradition is staying pretty much exactly the same with the release of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation.

Why Final Fantasy VII for iOS Might Not be so Great After All

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 17th, 2015

If you’ve bothered to look at my profile on here, first of all, why are you that interested? Second of all, you’ll note that I stated that Final Fantasy VII (and Goldeneye) were ‘life-changing’ for me. Ok, so there’s a certain amount of hyperbole there, but those two games ensured I went from "Hey, games are quite fun when I've got nothing better to do" to "I love everything about them and they’re very important to me." That’s a double-edged sword to one’s productivity levels, but hey, look what I’m doing right now.

As a big mobile gaming fan and a big Final Fantasy VII fan, I should be excited about it coming to iOS, right? Well, not so much.

E3 2015 - Square Enix Just Announced that Final Fantasy VII is Coming to iOS

Amidst all the buzz of the Final Fantasy VII remake announcement (yes, it's really happening!) was another little aside from Square Enix: Final Fantasy VII is also coming to mobile devices.

Practically no details have been given other than the fact that it's coming, but as soon as we learn more we'll be sure to share. In the meantime we can all look forward to carrying Midgard around in our pockets later this year.
