Netflix’s upcoming Bastard!! anime is ready to blow our minds with its ghastly themes and the lunatic overpowered magician, Dark Schneider.
While the manga has controversial traits, it didn’t stop the franchise from gaining a cult following as many grew to love the character and the story. The popularity then inspired a six-episode OVA in the 90s, but that wasn’t enough for fans.
So, the franchise is now back with another anime adaptation of Bastard!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- set to premiere on 30 June, 2022.
Netflix has revealed an English-subtitled trailer previewing the anime’s opening theme, ‘Bloody Power Frame’ by coldrain.
The video starts on a dramatic note as Tio Noto Yoko breaks the seal and frees Dark Schneider. But why would anyone release an evil magician? Because they need him to fight their battles.
As the God of Destruction Anthrasax’s threat looms over the kingdom, the high priest is forced to bring back Dark Schneider, the only one who can save them.
However, as soon as he’s freed, the unhinged magician returns to his destructive and womanizing behavior. With a narcissistic attitude and all the power in the world, Dark Schneider begins to gather his crew and prepares to destroy Anthrasax.
The franchise has also revealed that Mami Koyama will be playing the role of Anthrasax. Koyama has also voiced Balalaika in Black Lagoon and Miki in City Hunter.
Even though it has been serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, the manga is unlike any other shonen story you’ve seen. Instead of a pure-hearted protagonist who puts his life on the line for others, Bastard!! gave us an evil, omnipotent, and self-centered magician who wants to take over the world.
That’s the major reason I’m excited to see what the anime has in store for us this time.
Bastard!! is a dark fantasy manga by Kazushi Hagiwara. It was first serialized in 1988 in the Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine. It currently ongoing in the Ultra Jump magazine.
The protagonist, Dark Schneider, is a wizard who is feared more than the evil creatures who haunt the people. The series is filled with rage, horror, sorcery, and power struggles. It is a perfect fit for Berserk fans.

It’s been about six months since release, but FNAF: Security Breach is coming out soon for more platforms. It launched on PC, PS4, and PS5 in late December 2021. While the game received praise for finally evolving its gameplay a bit, its release was not without technical issues.
Yesterday, developer Steel Wool Studios released a short teaser for the Xbox version of the game. It shows Monty Gator in a commercial for Gator Golf. After the reveal, there is a brief, but lengthy disclaimer for the death, dismemberment, and all around gruesome fates you may encounter in the game.
Currently, all the main series Five Nights at Freddy’s games up to Security Breach are available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. FNAF: Security Breach is expected to come out for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S this fall. A collector’s edition for PS4 and PS5 is available for pre-order and will ship in December.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 Dominion Biosyn Improved Sandbox Experience
Jurassic World Evolution 2’s new expansion is going to be called Dominion Biosyn. It will allow players to play through the massive corporation’s first days. With that said, they will have an understanding on how hungry the company was at bringing back never-before-seen dinosaurs. That is, before everything takes a turn for the worse.
Fans of the franchise witness Biosyn working at full capacity in the movie Jurassic World Dominion. The corporation genetically created dinosaurs and other dangerous creatures at such an alarming pace. Jurassic World Evolution 2’s Biosyn campaign flows harmless from mission to mission. Players were successful with very little push back.
Some of the dinosaurs ended up getting sick while others tended to misbehave. However, gameplay was essentially a stress-free playthrough that allows players to interact with a lot of new dinosaurs. Examples of these new species are the Giganotosaurus, Pyroraptor, Quetzalcoatlus, and the Dimetrodon.
The campaign does not really ask that much from Jurassic World Evolution 2 players. Guest satisfaction is not a priority. The main focus is to build working habitats for the new dinosaurs. Players can build an invisible fence. However, this feature may be challenging to work with when the map is heavily wooded. These special fences look amazing in different habitats. Being able to see how the dinosaurs interact with the existing lot makes the game even more fun to play.
With that said, players may want to check their overhead heat maps first so they can see the perimeter. This will make it easier for them to apply any ranger posts and feeding stations. The game’s underground railway system may also be difficult to chain together.
Jurassic World Evolution 2’s Dominion Biosyn expansion expands the core game in small yet meaningful ways. Overall, the DLC hugely improves the sandbox experience.

The Mod Squad
Though the development of Haunted Chocolatier is well underway, Stardew Valley still has a massive active community. Developer ConcernedApe knows this and still has plans to improve the indie farming-sim. Though development has mostly slowed down, you can be sure there is more to come.
Last week, when asked about plans for Stardew Valley and Haunted Chocolatier, ConcernedApe gave a bit of insight. In the next Stardew update, 1.6 will not have very much in the way of new content, but it will be be more mod-friendly. Recognizing the modding community and their work, the next update will make it easier for modders.
As for Haunted Chocolatier, Eric Barone says that there will be some connections between the new game and Stardew Valley. It will not be a sequel, but it will have similarities, such as relationship-building with the NPCs. There will also likely be some shared world elements. Maybe a Joja billboard or something.
1) 1.6, yes. But it’s mostly a modding-focused update (makes modders lives easier). There will be some new content but it won’t be huge. 1.7? Who knows.
2) Yes, but I haven’t decided how deep the connection will be exactly. I want Haunted Chocolatier to have its own identity
— ConcernedApe (@ConcernedApe) June 23, 2022
Anything on update 1.7 or beyond for Stardew Valley is anyone’s guess. It doesn’t seem like even Barone has any plans at the moment. Stardew Valley is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
