Am I the only one who doesn’t find colourful ponies physically attractive??? Oh well.
Oh, absolutely not.
Maybe it should have been pointed out more specifically, but no one was claiming that everyone finds ponies attractive, just that it should not be treated as some outlandish offense if they do.
More of a ‘I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it’ kind of thing.
Stupid, sexy ponies…
Well, she tried…
I always got the feeling that the silly little nicknames were almost parodies of the show’s own naming conventions.
I mean, when you really think about it, a lot of names on the show are basically funky little descriptions of the characters themselves.
‘Rainbow Dash’ is just her color scheme plus her favorite activity.
Looking at it that way, suddenly ‘PurpleSmart’ doesn’t seem all that crazy, really.
That isn’t so tough to figure out.
Others, like ‘Rarara’ and ‘Ponka Pee,’ are just part of the internet’s love of intentionally mispronouncing things for the sake of silly giggles.
No deep meaning there.
Eh, obviously it doesn’t look good enough to attract me or make me even slightly interested in its characters or story, but I don’t think it’s quite as apocalyptically horrible as some people are claiming.
The character designs are wonky and the voice acting is annoying and overdone, but that’s pretty standard fare for kids’ shows.
In fact, the main feeling I got while watching?
This is what MLP G4 would have been had Hasbro not taken a chance on Faust.
The unnecessary 3D, the more bulbous character models, the more childish writing and acting…
It’s practically G3 in 3D, and considering Hasbro’s ‘upgrade’ of Care Bears into the next dimension, they must have thought about doing that with MLP at one point or another, too.
So yeah, but for a chance meeting of Faust and Hasbro, this is what would have aired back in 2010 and this whole brony thing would certainly have never existed.
I actually downloaded and played that a couple days ago and totally forgot to post it here!
They also have a little debut trailer:
I’m kind of curious to know how much voice acting and full animation will be in the final version.
There’s only that little bit at the end of the trailer, and none in the demo.
Anyway, for anyone curious about the demo, it’s pretty simple.
The basic premise is right along the lines of your standard anime high school interactive novel
Think Katawa Shoujo, except I’m pretty sure they’ve stated that this is not a dating game.
You play a ‘blank-slate’ kind of guy (A humanized Tom, in fact. Yeah, the rock.) who shows up in this new situation and is immediately introduced to all the characters you would expect.
That’s actually all the demo covers.
It’s really more of a ‘trailer’ than a ‘demo’ because there aren’t even any decision points in it.
It’s just a bunch of story introducing all the characters, showing you the setting, and establishing the world.
Interesting, but nothing huge.
Only takes about 15 minutes or so to read through, so I’d recommend it if you like that type of game.
