I’m glad Derpy was downgraded back to a background pony.
I get that she was a shout out to the bronies, but that’s the thing. We’re just fans. We don’t need special attention, and we certainly don’t need to be given special treatment either. We still argue, debate, and converse with each other about the show, like any group following. We wouldn’t want the show to lose sight of its target audience, and that would be everyone.
Speaking role is an upgrade now? Bon Bon’s spoken tons of times (albiet it with many different voices) and she’s still a background character. Is Mayor Mare a mane character now? She played a big part in Winter Wrap Up but that didn’t mean she was no longer a background, supporting cast pony.
Throwing a couple of lines at a character isn’t that big of a deal. Yes, even if that character happens to have been a large part of the unspoken communication between fans and artists. Most people will either know and be happy or not know and not really think about it too much, it was a harmless nicety Which makes it all the sadder how it ended up being taken by some.
Only a politician would have the spherical objects to chide others about how they ‘Shouldn’t be afraid of the facts’ while simultaneously ignoring the many, many, many studies conducted on the effects of both video games in general and violent video games specifically over the past 10 years. Results have been varied, some studies carried bias one way or the other, but it seems like hardly a day goes by that someone, somewhere, fails to chime in with new numbers. So how the hell is there not a single one of those studies that qualifies as even remotely helpful?
The whole ‘video games killed my hamster’ argument was always tiring, though it used to come in shorter bouts, yet this combination of chiding and willful ignorance is just a whole new level of stupid.
Someone reminded me that Path of Exile finally hit open Beta. Downloading the hell out of that! Not that TL2 isn’t every bit as awesome as expected, but I’ve been wanting to try this as well.
Not like I will ever make it into the Elder Scrolls Online beta. Nor would it be particularly helpful to anyone if I did though. I already plan on getting it, bar the combat system turning out to be complete balls, so why not just wait?
On the subject of Beta’s, Don’t Starve is fucking awesome. More people should play it. And possibly tape reactions.. There can never be enough people learning about ‘hounds’ in the middle of the night.
Drew the first thing I did in MC: Digging Straight Down
do you want minecraft?
Always found that it’s not so much a matter of ‘don’t dig straight down’ as it is ‘for the love of Notch bring ladders!’.
I can make my own problems, all by myself!
The longer I stay away from Tumblr the further down I have to scroll, the further down I have the scroll the greater the chance Tumblr will shit its pants, the greater the chance Tumblr will shit its pants the greater the chance I’ll say ‘fuck it’ and stay away from Tumblr for a bit.
It’s a vicious cycle.
And yes, I do know there’s a ‘paged’ mode. But what am I, a cavewoman?! Fuck that.
Fluttershy, friend to animals, Element of Kindness, manipulative bitch.
It’s always a lovely say to stayinsideandavoideveryone.
But those fries ARE ALWAYS GOOD. Even after you learn they are not potato.. I don’t get it! @_@
