@Blue Yoshi
For more context: New Welovefine (Official Hasbro distributor) shirt design:

And explanation from an employee:

My reaction:

They had to drop the ‘W’ but, HO-LEE CRAP!
That cleared legal?!
Screw Time Turner, the Doctor is IN!

@Nathan
If I just randomly popped up in Equestria, I have some ideas about who I would want to meet first, but this is Pinkie we’re talking about here.
Like it or not, you will meet her first.
Some combination of Pinkie Sense and general physics wtf-ery will have her jumping out of your wallet or something four seconds after you appear.
All you would see:

Oh schnapps, Dr. Hooves is canon now? Sometimes I just bloody love Hasbro.

Next thing you know, they’ll recanonize Derpy!

@Hooves vs. Whooves
For a very short time when I first joined the fandom I thought his name was spelled Hooves instead of Whooves. This was due to most of the fanfics and fanon stating he was married to Derpy Hooves. It made sense to me, because married couples usually have the same last name.

I guess I can start using that logic as my headcanon, now that his name is actually Hooves.

@Pony I’d befriend first:

Well, being an alien being from another plane of existence without any former presence in Equestria, I’d likely be taken immediately to Celestia. Not any skin off my nose, really, since that was my first choice, anyways.

@Dr. Hooves:

And yet people still aren’t satisfied.

Hasbro is showing they actually care by putting that out there in the first place. Even the slightest possible risk of being thrown into a lawsuit by the folks behind Dr. Who would cost them so much and be so risky that the ‘w’ could is far more valuable to Hasbro than the entire brony fandom. No joke, the lawyers, mediation, and everything else they’d have to go through could cost a fuck-ton of money. Hasbro would probably go with the money over a chunk of the brony fandom, if not all of it, much less the fucking ‘w’ on a fan-named pony.

I shouldn’t really be surprised people are complaining about the lack of a ‘w’, considering the deal with Vinyl Scratch in the season finale… I guess I’m not really pissed about peoples’ reactions, I just don’t understand why that could make you upset.

Anyways, I think Time Turner fits for a cover name, being a time lord and all. I haven’t really watched Dr. Who, but I heard he had John Smith for a cover name at some point.

Should’ve gone with Mr. Jane Doe.

Doctor Hooves? Canon?!

@Pony I’d meet first

DeadParrot makes a good point in that Pinkie Pie would be the first you’d meet regardless, but if some cataclysmic event in space-time caused Pinkie to not notice my arrival, she’d still be the one I’d want to meet first. It’d certainly be the most fun. Pink, sugary, platonic fun.

HEY EVERYBODY

Not to distract from any of the current, and might I add, sumptuous, topics, but I need to promote myself for a brief moment! I have finished my Daring Do Flash build / walk cycle!

Judge:

Now look at it on deviantArt so that I can get views and feel good about myself!

  • Mane doesn’t move.
  • Front legs are way shorter than rear legs.
  • Rear legs are too thick after the hock point.
  • Wingtips are almost at the end of the body.
  • Blank boring facial expression.
  • Fanart of an actual character’s recolor/self insert.
  • Collar is askew to the left.
  • Pith Helmet instead of actual good-looking hat a la Indiana Johns.
  • devianArt at >2012 >shiggy diggy.
  • Used “everybody” instead of “everypony”.
    -You got points for the last one, but overall:
    2/10 wouldn’t watch again.

Not but seriously, Good job, can’t wait to see it put into use, walking cycles always mesmerized me, and the animation on this one look awesome and not rigid at all.


@ Dr. Discussion:
Remember the historical Vinyl Scratch/DJ-Pon3 poll?
Yeah it’s gonna be the same case here, the fandom will use both names, Time Turner is the alias of Dr.Whooves while he stays in the colorful world of Equestria…(or Vise Versa)

Nice!
It’s more noticeable on the deviantArt page, but her right front hoof looks like it’s on a slightly higher plane than it should be.
Other than that, great job!

Have you seen this?
It might help you out if you’re wanting to smooth thigs out or make some more complex stuff.
His other videos are pretty cool, too.

@X Singular

All actual issues, though I’m glad you like it! I’ll probably tweak it a bit more before I use it in anything.

@DeadParrot

Oh my sweet everything, those videos have more or less been my life force. The only problem is that they show a lot of what you should do and not how you can do it. But they’re great for the more advanced stuff. I’m already subscribed to him. And as for the right front leg being a little high, I though it was more the back right leg being a little low. I’ll fix it whenever I use it in something.

Edit @Nathan, below

That picture was posted on the last page and it makes no more sense the second time.

Hmmm, on one hand I really want to find something to work on… but on the other hand I could spend an hour playing this.

Ok, that’s it, enough distractions! I seriously need to buckle down and work on Screwball’s origin story, since apparently nobody’s had the initiative to do it themselves for about 9 months.

But where to start… anyone got any suggestions of how I’m gunna pull this off?

>trying to convince us fluttershy isnt boring

Anyways, Its just a matter of opinion. I think she is dull and way too timid, you think she is cute.

Oh, you liked that one, did ya? I don’t blame you, it’s a gorgeous piece of art. That must be the reason you zeroed in on the one image in that post that was just for fun, right? Riiight?

By the way, when did I ever say that I found Fluttershy cute? What I said was that she was far more complicated a character than many are giving her credit for, and apparently the only reason for this is that she’s just not flashy enough for your taste. I it does bug me a little bit because I’m a fairly reserved person IRL myself, as are many people among my family and friends. There’s far more to such individuals than just shyness or being “dull and way too timid”. That’s why I mentioned those episodes before, I believe they featured many interesting sides to Fluttershy that reveal her complexity. It’s not like I’m saying you have to love her or anything it’s just… oh wait.

Never mind, looks like you’d better change your ways fast.

Seriously though, like whoever you want, I don’t care. Like we both said, opinions and tastes and all that jazz.

Oh and by the way, she’s not just cute, she’s freakin’ adorable.


@Dr. Hooves

I’m totally down with this. The words CLOSE ENOUGH come to mind! Actually, I was perfectly okay with Time Turner as well, since it did sound like a good alias. As for anyone who objects to the lack of a W, that’s just a knee-jerk reaction, they’ll settle down. Don’t take ’em too seriously. (And that goes double for the Gamefaq crowd by the way.)


@8 bit pony game

That was awesome, thanks for sharing!

Oh, there was also an unplanned Fighting is Magic stream at Canterlot Gardens. Two videos (at the moment), but they’re LONG.

I just wish I knew the context of it, other then it just containing Luna, and you’re welcome everybody, I’d have posted more about that game earlier, but yeah, it was late and I was tired.

Collecting love is exhausting after all.

Dr. Hooves canon? That’s pretty neat, it shows that Hasbro cares about bronies. Not sure why anyone would complain about it though.

In other news, I finally got my hands on a GW2 beta key.

@Children of the Night:

The way I understand it, it takes place after Discord’s first defeat at Celestia and Luna’s hands. The world is still damaged and chaotic, so Luna decides to take homeless foals and orphans and lead them to a new colony of ponies, or something, and they eventually become the batwing ponies, I guess. It’s being made by a husband and wife, I think, the husband animating and wife singing and that jazz. I’m not sure how far they’ve progressed, but I heard about half-way (not sure if that’s overall or just one factor).

Either way, it looks immensely awesome.

Anyways, check out this hot-ass pr0n!

So let me get this straight – in official Hasbro merchandising, bronies have named Lyra (Heartstrings), DJ PON-3/Vinyl Scratch, Octavia and now Dr. freakin’ Hooves, not to mention the Derpy toy which really derps and the wonderful scene in ‘The Last Roundup’ that will always remain in our hearts (as well as on YouTube)?

I think that’s pretty amazing. Don’t you?

Wow. There’s alot of things to talk about today, so I’m just gonna make this short.

@Dr. Hooves
I honestly don’t care what the official name is, so I have nothing to say about it. Time Turner is a good name though.

@Adventure Ponies
That game is actually really really fun. I was surprised.

@Children of the Night Animatic
I agree with Nightmare Moon, it looks awesome. I can’t wait to see it finished.

Looks like the animation is Gonna be better than the show. It looks pretty neat and the singing is good too. Even though Luna has been fucked over by the show, ive always found her to be more interesting than celestia. Probably because she is more mysterious and princess of the night and all that jazz.

That game was genuinely awesome, and I’m actually surprised Hasbro, of all the people, would make it. A fine example of the platformer genre indeed. It sort of reminded me of “This Is The Only Level”, but with ponies instead of elephants.

Kind of curious though, what happened to the bad guys after you shot them with lasers, dashed them to oblivion, bucked them till amnesia, blasted them with party cannons, and stared them down into submission?

And did Rarity have to be a recolour?

@Meet the Pyro: I did not for one second think it was ponies. My first thought was “Holy shit Valve would totally have planned this waaaay back”, and I facepalmed when I saw one of the top comments at the moment was a guy screaming in allcaps about it not being related to ponies. Which surprises me, because YouTube comment quality level is lower than Taco Bell’s imitation imitation Mexican food.

@Pony I’d befriend first: Most likely Twilight because I relate closest to her. It’d take a while, though, she’d probably go into “question minigun” mode for a bit.

@ponygame: …I am not sure if I am going to play that. I might, I might not. I remember This Is The Only Level though… wasn’t it that one game with all the achievements you had to get in its lone level to win?

@Dr. (W)Hooves “Controversy”: They probably named him Hooves to avoid any unnecessary legal stuff, even though I think BBC reacted rather positively to his existence. “Time Turner” could be his alias while he’s not off on time-travel adventures. Either way, this one’s going to be fun. I’ll be sitting on Overlook Hillside with a pair of binoculars if anyone wishes to join me in watching the shitstorm.

IDW’s been one of the better holders of the Transformers comic liscence (Fuck Dreamwave and Pat Lee.)
I hope ponies get the same treatment that TF did and we get a Spotlight series. Spotlight was one of the best TF comics I’ve seen, giving a specific TF the main focus of the entire comic. We get that with the show already, but a comic series would be even better.
