Hi All,
I'm curious to know what is the difference as well as recommendation for two beasts :)

Is it Panda or Pygame and why?

pygame, for simplicity as well as documentation and community

Pygame is rather simple, but only supports 2D unless you use opengl with it. Panda3D(if we are talking the same engine) is a robust 3D engine designed by disney. If you want 3D go panda, 2D go pygame.
