Very few games have sent me to a brilliant, firey death one mission outside the tutorial, and made me feel like it was entirely my fault. Bomber Crew, the title best described as, "FTL, if your spacecraft was a WWII bomber made of paper maché and dreams, then painted pink and filled with buffoons" is upping the ante.   read

On the very first day, on my very first decision, I sent the children to work. "It's only the 'safe' jobs" I told myself - the cookhouses, to prepare food. The gathering piles, to pick up bits of coal, wood, and steel. "It's ...   read

  Watch Video Klei's new misery colony simulator Oxygen Not Included just got a significant update, expanding on agriculture and adding in a brand-new germ mechanic. This naturally means more stress-vomiting for the duplicants you try to manage, because I've spent enough time in this game to already know that diseases are going to spread like a wildfire.   read

  Watch Video They said I could grow up to be anything I wanted. So I became a robot. To say my Federation-friends were alarmed might be an understatement, but with the threat of space fascism out there, there is more to worry about than a species of cuddly Fennec foxes morphing themselves into heartless machines with nigh-unstoppable battleships… right? ...Right?   read

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

Some sort of "Destructoid Community Manager/Contributor", whatever those are. Can you eat them?

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 (with impeccable taste), and attempts to steal the world’s supply of fluffy animals (with strictly limited success).

Kickstarter disclosures:
Wasteland 2
Battletech
Hustle Cat
