Expeditions: Conquistador gets free weekend ahead of Viking release

Turn-based loot-gathering simulator Expedition: Viking sets sail (you think I could resist that?) on April 27th. In celebration of the impending launch, developer Logic Artists invites you to a free weekend and steep discount (currently at ...   read

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit gives us sweet zeppelin action on May 18

I have been playing city-management sims throughout my life, and despite that fact, nothing I have created in them can be considered either efficient or beautiful. I shamelessly blame my inability to do so on growing up in a region that cou...   read

 
 
 

For those with the ability to, on top of BokuHero I'd strongly suggest watching Re:Creators. It's a beautifully-directed action series that simultaneously critiques and revels in new and classic anime tropes; now featuring a magical girl!


 
 
 

Through the 17th, Amplitude is selling Endless Space for a dollar. They also want you to buy Endless Space 2 or something.

 
 
 

I saw people had #punktoid without me, and I am shocked and offended. So I spent just about forever trying to decide what to post. I've decided to go topical.

PREPARE TO FRIENDSHIP: Dtoid's Master Gaming Contact List

[Spring is the worst of all seasons. The fact that the pain it inflicts upon me is multiplied by how pretty it is at the time only makes it worse. Also, friend codes, give them to me! The List will be updated into perpetuity -Panda] Good mo...   read

 
 
 

When, as a mod, you have to approve your own post because it has a flagged word in it. It's not corruption, it's efficiency!


 
 
 

#ArbitraryMetalTuesday is a hashtag I created that I didn't actually expect to survive, but I'm glad it did. It can also arbitrarily be used on other days, too, although then it isn't ironic and hip anymore.

PC Port Report: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

Individuals on Destructoid have expressed surprise that I have never played a Senran Kagura title before. I'm not sure what that says about me – or the people on Dtoid. Time for that to change. Now that Senran Kagura Estival Versus ha...   read

 
 
 

After spending days troubleshooting Warhammer: Total War, I asked their official forums for help. Not only will they not help (they'll help those that haven't tried), they actually deleted my comment bumping the post after a week of being ignored.

 
 
 

I went to the symphony to see Distant Worlds tonight. It was just wonderful. They mixed up the normal playlist a lot for their 10th anniversary, lots of curveballs. Many favorites of mine got played, and I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING. Also puppy petting.



 
 
 

Things have been busy and anxious lately, so here's a pun-picture of 2B for no particular reason. I'm still waiting on the inevitable A2 paper joke.


 
 
 

Does anyone use a USB microphone (example: Blue Yeti) for singing? I've heard that Windows 8 and 10 effectively breaks USB mics for singing purposes by screwing with the volume levels, requiring boosting to unacceptable levels.


 
 
 

It has come to my attention that not everyone may know that the Master List is still updating - and now will be including Switch Friend Codes. I will be switching back to a weekly update schedule due to the rapid influx of new information.


 
 
 

I wrote a review for the beautiful but ultimately terribly flawed game, Diluvion. It would mean a lot to me if people could give it a read. Also, sea puns!

Review: Diluvion

It's amazing how bright the ocean can be, and yet still be so accursedly dark. My searchlights barely cut through the murk, and the shadows of ancient hulks say I have no place down here. My sonar pings off of an even bigger wreck, a tiny g...   read

 
 
 

I'm happy Zelda is great, but if you have any idea how Nintendo is handling friends now, I have this huge list to either update with new info or rework, but I'll need some help understanding how this is going to work. I heard the word "friend code"...

Review: Neo Atlas 1469

“Y-you can't trick me! A black and white bear? It couldn't exist!”“A black and white bear… heh heh heh… Well, it's something different to look for if you reach the orient.”“A black and white bear&...   read

 
 
 

I'm so excited, I got one of the last two tickets to see Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy! I've wanted to see it for a long time, but tickets have always been sold out!



 
 
 

#ArbitraryQuestiontoid: Have you ever played a traditional roleplaying game (like, the kind with pen and paper - whether with actual paper or on a computer or online)? What's your favorite game?

 
 
 

My face when I walk into the grocery store and there is not a single speck of VD candy in the entire store, and the teenage attendant not only doesn't know where $1k in unsold candy went, but doesn't know half an aisle is now unpriced Easter candy.


 
 
 

In light of a recent occurrence that set off a bunch of our ToS lights, I'd just like to remind everyone to flag comments responsibly, that up/downvotes do help moderation, and that you can e-mail community@destructoid.com with questions. Also, butts.

 
 
 
 

Work transcript: Them: "Panda, can you give me a count of how many people are on the dancefloor right now?" Me: "White People." Them: "No, I mean how many." Me: "I can't tell, their whiteness is blurring together."

 
 


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



A superelectromagnetic panda powered by Photon Energy and allergy medication, Robo Panda Z was built to fight the forces of procrastination and serial game restarting, but quickly succumb to both. When not busy failing to finish games, Robo Panda Z bakes, rambles about anime/manga, and attempts to steal the world’s supply of fluffy animals (with strictly limited success).

Also totally some sort of "Destructoid Community Manager", whatever that is. Can you eat it?
