So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

A thread for all those topics that are worth bringing up but not worth a whole new thread. If it's Pony, it's on topic.

I've realized it for quite some time now, but in the process of making my most recent vector, it passed through my mind again.

 

Why aren't there any middle aged to early elderly aged normal bodied ponies?  Everyone is either young (like Cheerilee) or an extremely old (like Granny Smith) and nothing in between.  I just can't figure this out.

 

I say normal bodied because the closest middle aged pony I can think of is Prim Hemline, and she's pretty thin and somewhat gaunt.

Ms Harshwhinny might be in the same age range as Prim Hemline.

 

I think we see more of them than we think, but we just can't tell. Twilight's parents don't look a day older than they were when we saw Twilight as a filly. It seems that little ponies age pretty slowly.

It's still strange that we don't see more.  I guess we could chalk it up to laziness.

I agree with Fnu that voice, clothing and mannerisms are a lot of it. Most have the same bodies though the Cakes or Rarity's mom are good examples of body variance. One of the nurses from Read It and Weep also has the subtly thicker body type. However, the official age difference is the reflections/catchlights in the eyes. Foals have three. Young adult to middle age have two. Upper end of middle age and the elderly have just one. Ms Harshwhinny only has one catchlight. Mayor Mare has two. Now that I sit and think about this, while this does fluctuate and depend on a combination of other factors, I do find it intriguingly fitting Sailor U's vector of Brisk Iron has two catchlights.

-----

Alright I've got a question. Celestia's assistant/secretary seems to be named Raven. Why? Is it short for something else or is it some reference or what? I don't get it.

What does this say about Trixie? EG treats her like she's in the same age bracket as the Mane 6, but she has eyes with only one catchlight each.

Sethisto actually asked about that at some convention a while back (because he always asks something about Trixie. They brace for it when they see him walking up to the mike) and nobody knew. There's no official answer.

Alright I've got a question. Celestia's assistant/secretary seems to be named Raven. Why? Is it short for something else or is it some reference or what? I don't get it.

No idea. I don't think an official explanation has been given. If it's a reference, it's an odd one. The character was known well before she got a name.

While divergence can happen, it could be a way to make her seem more worldly/less innocent despite being the same age. Her show appearances have been antagonistic so it just might be a shorthand to make her a tiny bit off from everyone else.

Then again, EG ignores the catchlight thing with Trixie, as do the toys, and the comics just have no idea.

I'm gonna chalk the Equestria Girls thing up to the same business that had Strong Bad and Coach Z as babies in the same cartoon even though Coach Z is old enough to be Strong Bad's elementary school gym teacher. Namely, it's an alternate universe; 1:1 correlations don't apply. I mean, I assume Principal Celestia isn't over 1000 years old either. And aren't the Cutie Mark Crusaders in like middle school in that movie, too? I'm going by the preview since I'm still not interested in watching the movies.
