Something new I’ll start doing every Saturday, Derpy Review! Someone said EqD use to do this, and it sounded like a good idea. Besides my own review, I have linked news pieces from both EquestriaDaily and EquestriaGaming from the past week. After doing EqD’s links, I can see why BlogBrony doesn’t do a review, he has a ton of news. So lets begin.
– Owl’s Well That Ends Well airs, seems to be a 50/50 episode like several others, more or less some people think its great, while others think it was crap, and of course a few in the middle. Of course it can’t top the CMC episode of last week, but very little can. We are now left with the depressing fact that there is only two more episodes left to this season. Next season has not been announced, but speculation predicts October, as I think its been said that season 2 production wraps up in December, and this is more or less in line with how the first season ran production wise.
– Friday Morning Music Videos: Myskinsoft Pony Remover (recommended, I found it addicting), Rainbow Gradius, Winter Wrap Up (at the Everfree Forest) and Lunar Eclipse (Luna’s Theme), both also recommended.
– MLP:FiM Flash Game Story Contest: The development team of the MLP:FiM Flash Game are looking for a story that will fuel their game, see link for details.
– Polish Subtitle Episodes now available from ObessionOctopus, found in this playlist.
– MLPMMO Update: There’s been plenty of updates, this was the sprite test where you can fly around Fluttershy’s house. StrawberrySpice over at EquestriaGaming wrote up a review, which I send you people to.
– EquestriaDaily crested 3 million page views.
– Derpy Forums was resurrected, though still expected to be a ghost town with random vistors, like Scooby Doo.
– Hub Pony Easter Marathon: Starting at 11am EST, the Hub will be playing Swarm of the Century, Winter Wrap Up, Feeling Pinkie Keen, and Owl’s Well That Ends Well. If we are lucky, TrollHD will be recording that day, and we’ll get HD versions of Swarm of the Century & Winter Wrap Up. Also its been noted Call of the Cutie (ep 12) has also been ripped in raw HD, Mentos will probably be encoding that this weekend.
– MadMax’s Derpy Comic, filly Derpy blows up a chemistry project due to RD’s Sonic Rainboom, thus caused her to have Derpy eyes.
– Summer Sun Celebration Contest: A contest being held by Plaster for musical videos, AMVs and whatnot, though no Fanfics as some people noted. Contest ends June 20th, and will be judged by MadMax, Purple Tinker, Plaster, Eurobeat Brony, Blog Brony and myself.
– My Little Pony: Friendship is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Hasbro: Youtube Poop video that even has people who are not overly fans of YTP, loving it.
– Twilight’s Theme (Vanquishing the Ursa Minor) by David Larsen. If you enjoy his work, it should be noted that he will be working on the music for the MLP:FiM Flash Game.
– Pony Plushies & Pony Pins: Unknown but somepony out there creating awesome plushies, and then pre orders from Kanamai who made the RD Pins for a new set that includes all of the staff.
– VGCats confirmed Brony: VGCats.com puts out a Pony related comic, very mixed reviews. Random note, a comic called ExterminatusNow which can be described as a Sonic The Hedgehog art style comic (has nothing to do with Sonic outside the general character designs) is also confirmed Brony, they did not make a Pony comic but the artist behind the comic “The Virus” made pony art.
– MLP:FiM Flash Game put out a tech demo, people realized that no, the project isn’t dead.
– Concept Art is released (though its been pointed out it was released several months ago), but just been noticed again.
– Music and Video dump, excellent stuff including two Ponybeats. We have [My Little Pony vs Death Note], [Super Ponybeat – CMC Blankflank Edition], [Super Ponybeat – So Many Wonders], [Princess Luna’s Lullaby], [MLP:FiM Piano Medley] and [FiM – So Many Wonders Piano/Instrumental]

College Bronies! (Note, the image at the top is the one from ExterminatusNow Artist Virus)
Yes, call it insane but some people do enjoy flight simulators, and I’m one of them, but I’m not alone. There will be some details coming out over the next week, but a few virtual pilot bronies are looking to have fun with their fellow pony lovers. There’s roughly two sides. First you have the Microsoft Flight Sim guys like myself, which indeed to many gamers, it might be boring, but to each their own. If you’re one of us, we’re working on a system known as the Virtual Airline Financial System, basically an online system that allows you to run a virtual airline. You setup pilots, buy planes and fly routes (again, boring to many). But if you’re interested, keep an eye here as we plan to make a site for them. Of course this is pony related, as the Airlines are pony based. Obviously the picture above is myself flying Derpy Hooves Airlines, the only airline where passengers are dropped off in corn fields and your luggage picked up from the tops of trees, namely because I tend to crash the f-er while attempting to land. Also pictured to the CEO of the Pony Airlines, Madden, who during our trip landed on a highway after I more or less snapped my jet in half.
On the flip side, we also have people trying to get together for IL2, which is a World War 2 flight sim with combat. You can do many funs things such as fly a B17 with a 5 man crew online and kill some germans and other enemies. Again, more information to come.
Old news is always old news, but its good to repeat.
Ponies Surpass Internet Meme’s
It seems that ponies have surpassed most internet meme’s, at least from the site KnowYourMeme. According to the stats, Ponies got almost 6,500 views per day, reaching #12 in only 69 days. It is the only Meme to break 3,000 images and 2,000, and 1,000, with an average of 45 pictures per day, currently has 3,100.
Pony Backpacks @ Walmart
According to EqD and the reports submitted to them, there are now Pinkie Pie backpacks available at Walmart, of course probably not all yet. $6 Dollars for something that actually has an on-model image of Pinkie Pie, well worth it.
Hasbro Visits Project Merch
This is the survey conducted by Purple Tinker, the general idea is to get Hasbro and Hot Topic to start selling merchandise aimed at the bronies. I know from personal reports by PT that many places have given her the run around, but apparently from her site logs, someone from Hasbro visited the slide show. So there might be hope for this project yet.
2d Pony MMO Combat Demo 1 & 2
Two different demos were released by the 2d Pony MMO team. You can check out the 2nd demo here. Personally I like the setup, it makes me think back of the days of Sega Genesis and a game called Golden Axe, which was a side scrolling adventure game kind of like how their battle screen works. You can check out their development over at their forum.
Pony Sticker Drawing
Strawberry Spice of EquestriaGaming is going to be holding a drawing for custom made pony stickers, but right now asks the question, what images should be printed. You can run over to the Ponychan Thread for details.
That’s all for now.
Well, as usual I’m doing my seek and find of new art for the gallery here, and came across a few things I wanted to post up, the first…
Random brony dropped this off in my news mailbox, its not directly MLP related, with probably the exception of Mr. Toots, it made me laugh, so I figured I’d share, cause you gotta share.
