@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

The intent of this thread is to discuss any games related to MLP, whether they be official or fan-made. The reason I'm starting this now is because I was inspired to do so by Sobana's thread regarding his/her RPG "Maidens of Twilight", and then remembered that I'm still in the process of building a FiM-based level for Knytt Stories.

Anyhow, to anypony who has any experience playing Knytt Stories, this is a sample of my recent work (just ignore the intro--I'm going to fill out the story eventually, but I didn't really feel like doing it yet, so the intro doesn't really make a lot of sense). It has nothing to do with MLP, but I was hoping somepony might be willing to play through it and let me know if the length and difficulty level should be changed for an MLP level. Mostly, I just need a benchmark to use for comparison's sake.

Now, on to other FiM games. Anyone seen anything new or promising recently?

There's an official Pony app for the iPhone/iPod/iPad. It's basically an interactive storybook about Twilight Sparkle.

Twilight Sparkle, Teacher For A Day

Don't expect the level of writing/voice acting from the show. In fact, it seems to just be just one person reading the story who sounds a bit like Twilight but not quite. Imagine a story from the previous series (G3) set in the FiM universe. It's a bit like that. The art ranges from quite good to very poor. The usual vector art they use in the official merchandise make an appearance, good and bad.

Still, it was only 69p (99c) so if you're starved of Pony fun then this may keep you entertained for a bit. Plus if you have a young child who likes the show they'll probably enjoy it more since it is, after all, made for them.

It's kind of a shame Fighting Is Magic is already well underway by now, because if it were just getting started right now, having the premise be that Discord has escaped again and turned all the ponies against each other would be just perfect.

If you ever somehow become a Catholic saint, be aware that they will harvest your bones and build altars around them.

I have started the SuperGroup "Protectors of Ponygon" on the Exalted server for City of Heroes. Pinkemina (Axe/Willpower scrapper) is my character, and Flutterwry (Mental/Pain Corruptor) will be in it as well. Both heroes, more or less. icon-hotrod.gif Shoot me a tell at @dvandom or PM me on the board here if you want to make a pony character and join up.

Just had a little go on the CMC demo and so far it's looking pretty good. The character animations look great and very smooth. The talking sounded a bit weird at first, although I could see what you were going for (reminded me of Banjo Kazooie). The game did crash on me when I accidentally clicked just outside the window (I was Sweetie Belle at the time).

All in all I'm looking forward to playing the full game. I do enjoy a good point & click icon-hotrod.gif

There's a new trailer for Fighting is Magic:



Shows Pinkie, although the trailer is for Twilight.

EDIT: I like how Twi seems to have a "levels of understanding" mechanic by reading her book.

Anyone else watch tonight's Fighting is Magic livestream? It's looking good. They are working on getting it up on YouTube, so consider this the advance warning bump. I wonder how much will be ready by the end of June (which is to say, this summer's BroNYcon?)

I hope that game has like killer instinct combos where you can get up to 100+ hits if done right.

If you watch the videos, they make it quite clear that they aren't going to do that. Which I think is great, because getting infinitely juggled is really no fun for the player on the receiving end. Besides, with the way that successive combo hits get penalized (again, watch the videos) you wouldn't do much more damage anyways.

I'm kinda disappointed in that. High end combos, in my option, are still very impressive. They could make it so after so many hits the combo stops doing damage but allows you to keep going just to see how long you can keep it up like a high score or just a cool visual effect. Like in killer instinct, you couldn't do the same combo over and over again, the opponent would move out of range, requiring you to switch to a different one to keep it up, making any combos past 20 very difficult.

Say, is there an official forum site for this game?

No. There's their website, their Twitter feed, and an unofficial subreddit. They figure a forum would devolve into FAQs and would take them away from actually working on the game, which I think is quite reasonable.

We'll have to agree to disagree on the combos. I think they're smart to keep the game accessible for fighting game n00bs such as myself, while keeping it interesting for people who know what they are doing. Multi-dozen hit combos don't seem out of reach, in any case, particularly with moves like Rarity's level 3 super.

For me, fighting games sparkle the most with flashy and complex fighting styles. Being able to throw your opponent and dance around the screen is something I enjoy seeing. It gets rather boring just spamming the punch button like a rockem' shockem' robot until someone loses. Do you know if they will have any finishing moves?
