Mists of Pandaria tries to breathe new life into an old World of Warcraft

Video games these days have a shorter shelf life than ever before. Titles fall out of the top ten within days or weeks (if they ever get there at all), there are awesome new releases arriving every month or so, and even the biggest games are on a yearly (if that) sequel schedule at this point. And ...

Blizzard gives $1.1m to Make-A-Wish following in-game panda sales

Okay, avid World of Warcraft players. We take back all the mean things we said about your habit of purchasing in-game vanity pets with real-world money, even though the in-game pets do nothing while the real-world money does everything. See, we didn't know that you were actually just donating money...

Namco Bandai just dished out a press release about upcoming National Geographic Panda. With the game hitting U.S. retail shelves this fall, the prospect of playing with virtual pandas on your DS is not the only enticing aspect panda fans should be focusing on.

E308: Namco Bandai's Panda game dated for U.S.

The first English-language screens of Namco Bandai's National Geographic Panda have emerged from E3, as well as a North American release window of this fall. We also received a smattering of gameplay details, listed beneath the almost unforgivable title of "It's PANDA-MONIUM!" According to these, th...

National Geographic Pandas are no slackers

We simply can't fault Namco Bandai's inspired decision to develop a game based on panda bears. When it comes to pandas, there is no universal divide in opinion (as there is with dogs and cats) -- everybody is a panda person. That kind of popularity can only be gained from being extremely cute and...

Say 'awww' to these new National Geographic Panda screens

Seriously, if there was anything that could melt the heart of the most cold individual, it's images of a panda bear playing with a beach ball. And, we have just that, in our gallery below, courtesy of Namco Bandai. We have to say, that with each new National Geographic Panda screen we're exposed to...

Listen to J-pop and roll a panda

We're oddly fascinated with the upcoming, uh, panda simulation game, National Geographic Panda. Well, it's called Panda-San Nikki in Japan, but in North America it's important to tag an environmentally-conscious magazine to the title. That way, gamers can save endangered wildlife while riding the ...

Namco reveals National Geographic Panda and Digimon World Championship

Today is a very happy day for us here at DS Fanboy. We had no idea that pandas on see-saws would be making their way to our country. Back when we saw the scans showing the Japanese game, we thought it was much too quirky and original to be released over here. Oh how glad we are to be wrong. So, wha...

DS Fanboy endorses panda bears on see-saws

Look, we would pick this game up based on the fact that there are pandas on see-saws alone. If you want to market your game to the DS Fanboy staff, this is how you do it! But, our job is demanding. We have to, like, investigate games and find out stuff about them. It's a tough job sometimes, when...

Check Mii Out -- I've got a panda for a face!

Siliconera posted a video of some popular Japanese Miis, taken from that region's Check Mii Out Channel. Of course it's interesting to see a Japanese take on the ubiquitous Michael Jackson Mii, and we are probably going to go make our own Oshiri Kajiri Mushi Mii now, but we were taken by this Mii, c...
