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)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

Dvandom Today at 11:32 AM
"About 1000 years ago" in Equestria contains analogues of pretty much all of human history prior to, say, 1600 AD. All at once.
Rockhoof's village is about the only one that actually FITS the millennium ago thing.
 
FnuAw Today at 11:33 AM
Maybe they just don't have a number above 1000.
 
Dvandom Today at 11:33 AM
Somnambula is more of a 4000 year old thing, the Castle of the Sisters is maybe 1200-1400AD, etc.
Canterlot itself was built in the time of the Pillars, and is more of an 1800s Mad King Ludwig deal.
Yona SHOULD like him. He smashes.
Yona crushing on Rockhoof.
 
FnuAw Today at 11:38 AM
They're gonna make me care about Yona.

so the legends come back...and ...are forced to get jobs?
 
Dvandom Today at 11:49 AM
Shoveling on a boat may not be recommended.
The Pillars of Equestria are all very duty-driven. They forced themselves to get jobs.

Dvandom Today at 12:00 PM
"History" may not be the right term for his stories.
 
Scavenger Today at 12:00 PM
luckily things happened 1000 years ago...and now

 

They did it. They made me like Yona.

 

Good episode.

"Best yak" a pretty low bar to hurdle. :)

I liked this one. Rockhoof has the pioneering spirit suited to high adventure, but now he's stuck in a civilized world that has now use for adventurers (who aren't alicorns or bestest buds with alicorns). Of course he feels out of place.

I did enjoy the episode, but I have a couple of nitpicks:

 

1- Fire breathing contest. INSIDE a burnable building. You two are idiots and deserved what happened to you. Rockhoof was in the right here, what should have happened was everycreature asking the dragons what the hell they were thinking.

 

2- "Follow those stars!" While I've heard it takes a lot longer then a thousand or two years for the stars to move enough that there would be a noticeable difference, this is Equestria so who knows? My actual problem with this is: How do the position of the stars determine where rocks in the water are!? That'd be like me walking into my parking lot and going. "Hey guys! Let's follow the North Star to get out of here!" Then I smack into a building.

 

There was no indication that Rockhoof had been in that area before, so him pointing out a random constellation wouldn't help him know where rocks in the sea are!

Yep.  And based on the maps we've seen his village has got to be on the other side of the continent from the Hippogriff territory.  Even if it's not that big of a continent, it's still got to be far enough south that constellations would be in the wrong places...unless Equestria is a flat earth.

I don't think this is a nitpick. I think you've found a genuine scripting error. The stars and the rocks have nothing to do with each other.

 

It feels like a case of a similar scene appearing in two different drafts, and both getting jumbled together instead of one being picked over the other when writing the final draft. In one draft he crashes because it's too foggy to see the rocks and that particular one didn't used to be there. In another draft he gets lost because the position of the stars has changed. These are two different problems. If he did know the positions of all those rocks, the position of one constellation would not be of any use in finding his way around them in a fog.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Actually made laugh out loud in a few places.

Wonder why he didn't just go see the yaks? Their the same size as him, and roughly the same technical base as before he went into limbo.
