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 always love the interpretation that the ponies are actually flat, Paper Mario style!
It’s like they live in a universe where everything is vector graphics, so what you see is truly a matter of perspective! Could be pretty cool.
The story behind (hehe) this image is pretty hilarious as well.
Apparently the artist drew this in his spare time at some summer camp, even when other people were around. They’d give him weird looks, and he’d just give them a steady gaze back and keep drawing.
The one on the left is far, far worse.
“Derpy! Status report!”
“Shield strength is holding at 100%.”
“… all hope is lost. Commander Spike, send out the order to abandon ship!”
I’ve never heard anyone say that it will ruin the main show.
However, I would simply like to remind everyone that the resources being poured into this spinoff are dollars that could have been spent on the actual show, so in an indirect way it does have the potential to negatively impact its quality.
It might sound far-fetched but… just think about it. I haven’t followed things too closely, but from the looks of things EqG is going to be a movie of some kind (most likely Direct-To-Video). If it bombs, will Hasbro have any particular desire to make an actual MLP:FIM movie?
Who knows? Hasbro hasn’t exactly been making the most logical decisions lately, so I can’t really count on anything ATM.
Holy shit, bronies on Cracked?
And we aren’t the butt of a lame manchild joke?!
Today is a good day.
>you will never be Gamer Luna’s boyfriend.
Feels sad, man.
I love you.
Meow meow, motherfucker.
Yeah, I never expected a series of midquel tie-in comics to be my main source of faith-restoring official content. Those comics are really great and I hope they can keep up the current degree of excellency.
You brought up something quite profound, I think, regarding the concept of lingering controversy.
In my opinion, more than any other choice that the show staff have made, having Twilicorn come at the end of the season (and thus, making us wait for nearly ten months before new episodes come) is the ultimate dick move imaginable.
I mean, as I’ve said in other places, the current biggest problem with the whole Twilicorn dilemma is that there’s no closure. Neither side has substantial evidence to back up their claims regarding whether Twilicorn is a good decision or not. If this had come at the beginning of a season, we’d get instant undeniable confirmation of at least some of our fears/hopes.
But instead, we’re left in limbo for a year with all this gigantic, unresolved conflict just looming over everyone’s head like an overcast day.
Biggest unintentional cliffhanger in the history of cliffhangers.
Ugh, it’s gonna be a long summer.
The brony fandom, where even our pr0n is well-drawn/written.
I mean, generally R34 content is the bottom of the barrel for any fandom, yet some bronies make it a goddamn art form. John Joseco, I’m looking at you.
Clearly, Evil is Sexy.
With all due respect to you, I’m not going to sugarcoat the following statement.
I hate that line of reasoning. I really, really do. Not only is it a huge generalization, it’s also super wrong anyway.
Not everyone was fine and dandy with Discord’s reformation, and a very substantial number of people remain, to this day, very opposed to Twilicorn and her debut episode.
The idea that the fandom “hates everything before it airs then embraces it once it does” is ridiculously stupid, and I can’t believe that so many people still espouse this idiotic sentiment.
STOP IT. PLEASE.
Well, that was rather unexpected.
Unexpected…. but very welcome.
Well, it’s pretty difficult to watch something that isn’t out yet.
Thus, my only option is to base my current expectations based upon personal experience and collected observations gathered from what little concrete information there is about this ‘spin-off’ thingy.
It has a high likelihood of not being good.
It could be good! There’s nothing definitive saying that it’ll be terrible!
But it’s pretty likely it’ll suck.
It does sound a lot like your average alt-universe fanfic.
The whole “alternate characters reminiscent of my friends” thing is actually something I’ve seen done really well in several Alt-Universe Human stories.
The official Equestria Girls will still never be as good as this, though:
You know, I just can’t seem to wrap my head around Mando becoming so damn popular with the show staff.
I mean, he’s a good musician, don’t get me wrong, but…. idk, I never really liked Mando that much to begin with (only his instrumental stuff ever captured my interest), and his complete overreaction during the ‘Mando Pedo’ incident just killed any good will I have for the guy.
@all the people complaining about the ‘furry’ character
Honestly? Are you guys serious?
So, 90% of cartoon characters since the dawn of time are all okay… but any modern anthro cartoon/comic character sickens you?
Time to grow up…
Gonna have to check this out sometime.
Well, that makes perfect sense for physical attacks, but some examples do indeed make no sense, such as beam weapons suddenly doing double damage without any more charge-up or anything.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Codex as well.
Back in Mass Effect One, my dad got to play the game first, but he let me watch him play and read the codex when he was taking a break. Both me and my dad are completionists, so we managed to complete the Codex together on his first run through.
Thus, I had read the entire Codex before ever actually playing the game myself.
