From today's featured list

World of Darkness tabletop games have been adapted into video games by different developers, covering several genres including role-playing games, action games, and adventure games. Video game adaptations of the series began with two Werewolf: The Apocalypse games in the 1990s that were never completed; the first released video game in the series was 2000's Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption, which was followed by three Hunter: The Reckoning games in 2002–2003, and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines in 2004. Following this, no further World of Darkness video games were released in over a decade, with another Werewolf project and the online game World of Darkness started and canceled in the meantime until 2017's World of Darkness Preludes, which was based on Vampire: The Masquerade and Mage: The Ascension. Since then, several video games have been announced, including Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood and the three Vampire games Coteries of New York, Bloodlines 2, and Swansong. (Full list...)

Madagascan magpie-robin

The Madagascan magpie-robin (Copsychus albospecularis) is a species of chat in the family Muscicapidae, the Old World flycatchers. Endemic to Madagascar and about 18 cm (7 in) long, the male has mostly black-and-white plumage, whereas the female has a white wing patch, but more subdued greyish-brown overparts with pinkish-buff underparts. The species's diet includes insects, such as cockroaches, beetles, bugs and grasshoppers, as well as spiders, earthworms, small lizards, amphibians, and occasionally fruit. The female tends to feed on the ground, while the male forages higher up in the vegetation.

This picture shows a female Madagascan magpie-robin of the subspecies C. a. pica, photographed in Montagne d'Ambre National Park, located in the far north of Madagascar.
