The Back 4 Blood trailer looks like so much fun. I'm not really much of a release-day buyer, but I'm pretty much sold on it.



 
 
 

Last week I fell - hard. Didn't break anything but still hurting even now. I also got a terrible ER doctor, which meant I got to go back a few days later to confirm my concussion. Fun times. How's everyone else doing?


 
 
 
 

Steam is now allowing different publishers to do bundle sales together. As a result, there's a visual novel bundle with the phenomenal "Suzerain", "Yes, Your Grace", and "The Life & Suffering of Sir Brante". It's worth your $10.

 
 
 
 

Drunken Master 2 is my favorite kung-fu film, filled with great fight scenes that slowly build on the previous one. I'll post the "best" scene in the movie in the comments, but this is my favorite - you don't see close-quarters spear fights often.



 
 
 

Recently I've gotten back into reading books, versus comics/manga (like many neurodivergent kids, I was a huge reader as a kid, then dropped off later). It's nice, but I'm also overwhelmed. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also looking for new podcasts.

 
 
 

Miura Kentaro's art boggled my mind when I first saw it, and even as I look for examples to post, it still does. Even when I wasn't enamored with elements of Berserk's story... The life he breathed into the world he created, it drew you in.


 
 
 

I find I am more and more frequently wondering if a game sequel is going to happen, only to learn it is, but it's an Epic Exclusive and as a result no one knows about it. I had no Chivalry 2 or Darkest Dungeon 2 were ever announced!

 
 
 

Last month was fairly busy, so I didn't bring it up, but I recently passed my tenth year as a card-carrying member of this community. It's sort of an inconceivable amount of time to me to actively participate in anything. I appreciate you. Also, an AMA?


 
 
 

Also a very happy birthday to Occams. You always find a way to fill the infinite, gaping void - in our hearts.


 
 
 

Happy birthday, Jasondm300. One robot animal to another, you're pretty swell.



 
 
 

I got my second COVID dose last Sat; it played havoc with my terrible immune system and I've been sick since. Been spending all week sleeping and engaging whomever messaged me on Discord in nonsense conversations. so business as usual. You all been okay?


 
 
 

On my first run after finally unlocking Rivers, I became functionally invincible. About 60% into filling my tiles, I realized I couldn't be stopped, and just started putting things wherever. I'll probably come to regret my hubris someday.


 
 
 

Me, working part-time at Covid clinic: "The needles are tiny they barely hurt." Patient: "I thought it would be bad but I didn't even notice!" Me: "Yeah, the microchips are so tiny you don't need a very big needle at all!"

 
 
 

Been spending the past while doing moderation nonsense, and I feel the need to say: Remember to regularly check your e-mails/accounts for breaches, update your passwords, and shut down unused accounts. (Picture semi-related)


 
 
 

The 9th is Lily (Floppablecats)'s birthday. That may have passed in Aussie, but thanks to the power of time zones, it falls perfectly on #ArbitraryMetalTuesday for us. You've been a blessing to everyone on this site - especially me.



 
 
 

Happy Day of Spawn to my favorite fish person.



 
 
 

I'm not normally one for dark visual novels (I'm more of a Dream Daddy, Monster Prom type?), but The Life & Suffering of Sir Brante's first two chapters (available free) left a very good impression. The world-building is top-notch - it really drew me in.



 
 
 

When your urge to write manifests itself in 800-word replies regarding what Kamen Rider series to start with.


 
 
 
 

I was struggling with #Indietoid, and then I remembered that one of my top games of last year was Suzerain. A political visual novel where your choices affect the outcome, the writing is exceptional (It's also 20% off right now).



 
 
 
 
 

Happy capitalist candy acquisition holiday! Chocolate and symbols of affection for all!


 
 


About Robo Panda Zone of us since 12:56 AM on 04.18.2011

A member since... A really long time ago, Panda is a Dtoid moderator, as well as a former contributor of previews, reviews, and general stuff.

Powered by superelectromagnetic energy and allergy medicine, Panda was constructed primarily to play video games, then restart them halfway through. Is it ADHD or are they doing it to annoy you?

When not failing to finish video games, Panda will gladly talk about capybaras, music history, or why you should watch that weird anime from 2006 (or, I dunno, gunpla or Kamen Rider or whatever).

Will probably die from trying to pet a bat.

Asking Panda their favorite *Insert Thing Here* will lead to a 1,500-word reply or an anxiety attack.
