About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

I would love to disagree with OP, but since I joined during the S1-2 Hiatus….
I guess I’m in no position to say that he’s wrong.

Except, I never complained about S2. Even though I saw it episode-by-episode, I still thought it was absolutely brilliant (in fact, I never even had a problem with Mare-Do-Well, which is supposedly the episode everyone hates because of the broken aesop or something). I never complained about S2, not once. I loved it, and defended it even during the days before A Canterlot Wedding when many other people were saying it’d be a terrible episode.

So, considering my previous stalwart faith, I think I’m allowed a little credibility when it comes to my complaints of S3. Season Three had a few amazing episodes, some of my favorite in the entire show (Magic Duel, Sleepless in Ponyville, and Apple Family Reunion), but it also had some of my least favorite episodes as well.

Basically, I think S3 was a gigantic mixed bag, extremely polarizing to the fanbase.
Whether it was actually bad or not, the broken base it has left us with gives me a bitter taste in my mouth, and forever corrupts the good portions.

A tragedy, to be sure.

Hug her, tell her how glad I am that she’s real, marry her and have a loving relationship, then grow old and happy together.

Or, consult this helpful guide and act immediately!

Not only that, but didn’t he start the KYM team?
He certainly seemed like the primary guy. I wonder if he’ll ever feature comments from KYM like YT.
Also, Idea Channel must really love Minecraft, I think this is his third video featuring the game, hehe.

I think Season Three really has left many people this jaded.
Between the reforming of Discord, Alicornification of Twilight, the C&D of Mane6, and Equestria Girls, I think there are a lot of people who feel rather frustrated and distrustful of anyone associated with MLP.

I’m not saying that that’s a good reaction to the recent troubles, nor do I say that it’s a bad reaction. It’s just the way people are.

You’re either exaggerating, or Season Four is gonna give me a heart attack of awesomeness.

Commented on "We just want to play the stupid game already!"

Roughly a month ago when I finally caught wind that they were making a new Simcity game, I was super excited. An hour later, when I discovered that maxis is owned by EA, I began to cry great tears of sadness.

Oh well, I’ll celebrate the occasion by playing Simcity 3000 again.
Fuck you EA. Fuck you to hell.

(sorry about the late reply, meant to get to your post yesterday)
You love Paper Mario too? That’s awesome!
It was definitely one of the defining games of my childhood, my first RPG ever, still my favorite (though TTYD is a damn good game as well).

Now, I literally learned this just now, but it looks like there’s a group on DeviantArt working on making a texture mod of the entire Paper Mario game with ponies.
Check it (image is hyperlinked):

I haven’t really looked into the project yet, but by the timestamps it appears recent and active.
I’m excited! I wonder if they will be changing character dialogue as well.

Huh. Well, someday when I’m not being a lazy fuck I’ll have to try it out, hehe.

She’s kinda chaotic neutral to me.
Yes, she does bad things, but ultimately it’s in the best interests of her own people.

Now I have a sudden desire to see an Equestria x Changeling war in the style of Ender’s Game.

I’m honestly amazed that there isn’t more centaur fanart in this fandom.

I don’t think it’s meant as a test of mindless loyalty, but I’m sure that when it comes out and sucks ass (and at this point i’m looking at a 70% chance of suckage), we’ll see how zealous of a fan people are.
