    Bronycon 2017

    So looks like my brother and I can attend again for this year's Bronycon meetup. Just figured I'd check up on the status of things. Whether you guys plan to share rooms and the like similar to last year. Probably would have chimed in earlier, but it's been a trying couple of months between my Grandfather's injuries and then his death. EDIT: Been over two months since I posted this and not a reply, poke, PM, or anything. I guess that's a negatory on any plans?

    2016 Sucked

    2016 was a year like any other. Sucks about the celebrity deaths this time around though. (Which is funny, because I generally don't care much for most of Hollywood) But hey, life sucks in general. And as said earlier, there have been worse years. We'll survive.

    World of Warcraft

    Felt I had to share a few updates since I had some amazing luck yesterday night. My Dk is still a little under my hunter's ilvl (which is 868), but I closed the cap thanks to a much needed trinket upgrade from the weekly chest. (as well as some xmog swag from older content) The big thing I'm a little giddy about is that my rogue just jumped over 20 ilvls thanks to an 885 titanforged helm off J'im and Legendary pants from a cache. It'll be nice to do mythics and raid on a toon that isn't my hunter. I got my priest, monk, and pally up to 110 as well. Hopefully I can get them geared enough to heal effectively.

    Thanks for indulging me. I was beginning to worry that request might have broken you.

    World of Warcraft

    It'll be interesting to see how they handle Argus. More or less how the Draenei handle that as well, with it being their former homeworld and all. Kinda been interesting to watch the Draenei-only guild I'm in react to everything that's happened so far in this expansion. Old god resurgence is probably next on the chopping block. And i'd certainly like to see how they handle Queen Azshara as well - perhaps see a unique model instead of a blacked out Vashj back in Aszuna. I'd also like to hear a little more on potential class balance changes sometime in the future. A few of the classes i enjoyed in previous expansions (like my elemental shaman) could really use some good news about now.

    Coincidence, I guess? I was going to ask for something else, but then I figured Discord shenanigans would probably be more fun to draw than some boring OCs. Besides, I can probably do that boring stuff myself on my own time.

    Mind trying to draw Discord being Discord? Perhaps Fluttershy as well?

    Tackling mature issues

    There's doing it right and then there's shoving it down everyone's throats. They could probably get away with something subtle, like something/somepony in the background (like they've done before in a few ways) for older kids and up to find and point out - but it SHOULDN'T be the entire focus of an episode. It's a kid's show, after all. This is My Little Pony - not X-Men or Steven Universe. We are currently awaiting the SEVENTH season of this show - if they were going to make an episode focusing on this subject, they would have done so already. Could they still do it? Sure. But I personally feel that the opportunity to even try do so has long passed. Suddenly revealing someone to be gay or focusing a friendship problem around this would just be hollow/sloppy writing at this point. (especially if it involves a recurring character of some importance) It'd basically be tacking on a character trait that's unnecessary and limiting creative possibilities and potential character development in the future to emphasize the fact that X character is now and always has been gay. (complete with constant and forced reminders, which takes away from the story to again confirm that said character is gay. It just leads to bad writing for the sake of pandering.) Probably the thing I love most about this series is the writing - and that so many things are open to interpretation, leading to some interesting and diverse things to read in Fanfiction and RP - or to look at in fan art. You are free to disagree with me, but I feel that forcing an openly token gay character into MLP's show canon is PROBABLY a bad idea for its continued existence. As Aaron said earlier, just let the happy cartoon horses be happy cartoon horses. Let the mature themes congregate in Fanfiction, RP, and Fan Art. (Or watch something else that covers it. there's a LOT out there.)

    Pokemon Thread

    Yep. Don't watch vids relating to the game. I know that the footage and soundtrack were leaked, just resist the temptation for a week now. Mmmkay? I'm pretty excited about this game - and this time around, I'm considering actually filling up the Pokedex again since filling it in gen 2. Because of the 2016 monthly promotions, I don't have to indulge ridiculous requests for most of the legendaries. Yay!)

  13. It is a bit rare these days, but I don't think it'll go out of style. There are just some things that can't be expressed solely with technology. Some artists/animators can't think, experiment, or create using just digital software.

    Starlight Glimmer is not OP

    No Items, Fox ONLY, Final Destination. No Trinkets, Unicorns ONLY, Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters.

    Starlight Glimmer is not OP

    Pretty much this. She's done a LOT for a simple unicorn, much that in the short time we've known her that she's done many magical feats that many could make early seasons Twilight jealous. (I remember arguing with someone else early on about whether self levitation for unicorns was possible in the mainstream. It was proven possible by one of the cake twins - but she was a young foal with magic surges that let her bend dimensions. And then Starlight cements it) So basically S. Glimmer's powerful, especially in combat/utility spells, but she has many apparent flaws too. I personally like what they've done with her so far, but understand that some don't view her as I do. But either way, you can expect some great things with her.

    Tackling mature issues

    Kids don't need gender identity politics and lessons in sexuality in their stuff. There's enough politically charged ideas/agendas out there and this would probably more than piss off parents that watch this alongside their kids. Entertainment is supposed to be an "escape" from the overall crappiness of our lives and the world around us - not a reminder. In short, they can write some serious stuff from time to time. (You did provide some decent examples) The writers know there's an older audience, but it should ultimately be something the entire family can enjoy. Not something that prompts awkward q/a sessions with the family about controversial subjects. (Especially those that should remain on Tumblr.) EDIT: If you want content pertaining to certain issues, or to just mess around - there's always Fanfiction or RP.

    Favorite 3DS Model?

    The "New" 3DS has superior processing power in general, which allows them to port an enormously amazing game like that to the 3DS. For other titles, it makes load times, if any, considerably shorter compared to the other models.

    To settle a dispute

    Gabby. Because I want to see the world burn - and ruin your C-c-c-combo. (but in all seriousness, it was refreshing to see a different design for a griffin. And plus she's adorable.)

    Pokemon Thread

    Yeah...you technically missed it. Gamestop (or similar stores overseas) had codes for it in October. Right now, the same store(s) are distributing Genesects for this month's promo. Now, you might get lucky and they could have some of the earlier card codes left over from previous distributions. The codes still work - and if they have some, they're just sitting behind the counter anyways. You won't know unless you ask.

    Pokemon Thread

    So, which starter are you guys going to go with on release? I was originally gunning for Rowlet, but I think I might roll Popplio or Litten for Pokedex completion purposes since my brother is adamant in his choice already. On another unrelated note, I'm quite happy right now. I got went to a Gamestop a county over a few days ago for the Volcanion promo and got an Arceus code (which still works) from August's promo. Genesect is November's promo - so try and snag him if you want some more free legendaries!

    Call of duty Modern Warfare REMASTERED

    Call Of Duty needs to stop releasing a bloody game every year. Sure, they have three companies that develop games for the franchise, but they look and play so similarly that they blur together visually. If they took some time between releases, perhaps the game's playerbase would last longer. I have fond memories of a lot of these games (I probably played 2, MW 1-2, BO2 the most) - but if they want people besides the little ten year olds to keep caring, they need to put in some actual effort and love into any future games. (Which that looks like a negatory) One of the biggest flaws in this franchise is that they generally don't balance things or fix bugs actively. (some were better than others) Probably one of the most glaring examples (to me) of this was the MP-40 in World at War. It's an SMG that could kill in two shots without headshots/perks and people abused the heck out of it to the point that it was the only thing people used. The thing should have been nerfed within a few months, but it never saw a single change in the game's lifetime. TLDR: It's nice that Modern Warfare is getting an HD re-release. (It's a dated game, but it's also a classic.) But it SHOULDN'T be gated behind Infinite Warfare.
