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.


who else?

So, how’s everyone been enjoying the new release? I’ve been taking it pretty slow for now, since every bugfix breaks the saves. Once things stabilize, I’ll be doing a lot more.

I was actually wondering if anybody on KYM would be interested in a succession game. I’ll be making a forum thread later, but wanted to post here and gauge public interest. We could play using the old 0.34.11 release until 0.40 is stable.

As DrEmmerich put it rather well, a show’s season finale is just a fictional thing that has no bearing in reality. With sports, it’s happening live, involves real people, and (if you look at it from an economic and ‘respect between competitors’ standpoint) actually matters. My local city Seattle’s local economy made millions of dollars when we hosted the NFC playoffs last year. When we won the Superbowl against the Broncos, there were celebrations in the streets.

As a community, one that exists in a place in the real world, the sport of American Football meant a lot to all of us. I didn’t see Legend of Korra’s finale doing any of that shit.

Also, why would you need to take a day off from work to watch a show finale? Record it on your DVR (because I’m pretty sure everyone in the first world has a DVR these days), and watch it when you get home.

Besides, it’s easy to schedule in advance that you’ll be working different hours on the day you want to watch the Big Game. I’m sure these Tumblr fucktards don’t even have jobs. Just a bunch of teenage girls who don’t get sports, and only care about the latest episode of Teen Wolf. Fuck off.

Well that’s a… unique, story premise.
Seems ridiculously OOC for Cadance to do any of that though, unless she’s corrupted or Chrysalis.

It’s the fourth game in the series though.
So it might be alright.

Huh.
Y’know, everybody here is considering the possible implications this could have for tomorrow’s reveal, but I’m just wondering why Ubisoft would have a detailed model laying around. Perhaps they just had one because they felt like making one, or it was for a 3D printing thing, but it could also mean Ubisoft is actually designing a character rig for an upcoming 3D Rayman game.

That’d be pretty cool.

Hot snow, apparently.
Which would be fuckin’ weird to feel. I’m having difficulty imagining what it’d be like to feel that sort of thing.

Wait, I just realized.
Egophiliac is the artist behind Steamquestria? AKA, the same artist who drew Moonstuck (or Woonastuck)?

I should have known. She’s so good at this stuff.

There is no full version.
No full posterior.

I am sad.
