@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:40 AM)

Less said about the Sinclair Microdrive, the better...

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:23 AM)

I had two ZX Spectrum games on cartridge. Played 'em loads as it beat having to wait ten minutes for unreliable tape loading...

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

*dies*

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

and there weren't any rocks yet, they were all space dust

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

I remember when there was no internet

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

dont remember what it was called, but i had an internet answering machine software back in the day. turn it on when i was online and i wouldnt miss a call. would leave it off if i didnt want to be bothered though lol

@  Noideaforaname : (21 May 2017 - 08:46 PM)

Remember when it was either the phone OR internet? Remember when photos had to be developed? And if someone decided to take pictures of their eye you couldn't tell until you got the film back?

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 06:02 PM)

You're making us old farts feel old!

@  Foffy : (21 May 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Not me! I couldn't have known that in 1991! I wasn't even born yet!

@  Bass X0 : (21 May 2017 - 01:03 PM)

You only just realised? Everybody else has known that since 1991.

@  unluckiness : (21 May 2017 - 10:34 AM)

Holy jeez, Guile's theme does go with anything.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2017 - 04:34 AM)

The "humans as processors" bit was also used in season 2 of Dollhouse.

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:59 AM)

That is nonsense. Also, some men in black suits and sunglasses will be arriving at your doorstep shortly. Please cooperate and it will go much easier for you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (20 May 2017 - 03:42 AM)

It's not bull, the elite are using the 90% through wifi for their Androcide agenda. Learn the undisprovable truth.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:18 PM)

Although I think I remember hearing somewhere that the "clouds" darkening the sky are actually swarms of constantly-muliplying nanomachines? No idea if that's canon or not, but if it is it seems like that'd be something the machines themselves could figure out how to undo if they really wanted to

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:16 PM)

I dunno, for all their technical achievements those humans seemed just as shortsighted as in the present. And they were desperate by the time that was done, so it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought "ah, we'll figure out how to undo it later"

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:00 PM)

Also gotta wonder if the humans had some idea of how they were going to fix the sky, presuming they won out, because otherwise they were basically commiting suicide out of spite and the Matrix would be the only reason humanity is still alive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 09:07 PM)

One of the first things I thought myself after my first time through it

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Every time I watch "The Second Renaissance" I get the feeling I'd probably end up getting shot for being a machine sympathizer.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2017 - 10:36 PM)

Yeah, Ghostbusters. Specifically the episode where they check out the live action Hollywood "adaptation."

Pumped Up Pony and the voiceover on the educational film were both rather John Kricfalusi-ish elements.

Very good episode. With lots of nice visuals to episode. A masterful eye nightmare scene by Nayuki, roid rage pony which will proably get name from a secondary character from ren and stimpy, woodland animals cosplay pony masks, good variety with all the background pegasus, and fluttershy outfit parade. With the best one ebing the tree costume. Plus a toy character get her show debut with Bloomsforth it not one but two scenes. Like DrSpengler said the morale and lessons of the episode were very realistic done. In which incase you haven't watch the episode yet. Wheren't done as being predictible but how it would handle in real life if someone were to try. Defiently one of the stronger episode for season 2.

[Arson] 11:08 am: That wasn't flying, that was ... falling with style!
[Dvandom] 11:08 am: Without style
[Skids] 11:08 am: So is Blossomfourth the first toy only character to eb used on the show as background character?

[Caboose] 11:09 am: As far as I know, yeah Skids, she's the first.
[scavgraphics] 11:10 am: why did they put catepillers on snow white's face?

[Dvandom] 11:11 am: Just get all the Earth Ponies out of the way and lifting the water will be easy. icon-arcee.gif

[Dvandom] 11:13 am: New crazy Twi image.
[Arson] 11:13 am: Hmmm... I WONDER if he's actually sick.
[Dvandom] 11:14 am: Of course he is. Enough will be knocked out by illness that Fluttershy will have to go Super Saiyan to save the day.
[Arson] 11:14 am: Eeyup. Obvious plot point is obvious.
[Dvandom] 11:14 am: The Scouter reads 0.5.

[Caboose] 11:15 am: AAAGH
[Arson] 11:15 am: Still, super Flutters will be worth it.

[Dvandom] 11:16 am: This ep is chock full of new meme-images.
[Arson] 11:17 am: METALSHY!!
[Skids] 11:17 am: pony mask for the woodland animals. awesome
[Shoggoth] 11:17 am: This is hilarious icon-fire.gif
[Caboose] 11:17 am: She only has enough power to have .5 wind power, but she can smash through a tree?
[Arson] 11:18 am: Screw the Physics, she has Pony!

[Skids] 11:18 am: que giggle to scare her off

[Dvandom] 11:19 am: She needs to sign up for Krunk's class.
[scavgraphics] 11:19 am: Ponies have zippers
[Shoggoth] 11:20 am: Spike is the voice of cold hartless reason again icon-waspy.gif
[Dvandom] 11:20 am: Well, of course they have zippers. For the boots.
[Shoggoth] 11:20 am: Still, I really liked that "Fluttershy posing in front of the sun" bit. Looked awesome.
[Arson] 11:21 am: Yes. Badass Fluttershy FTW
[scavgraphics] 11:21 am: gee..if I was giving a Metereology exam....I'd have a bonus question about the number of pegasi needed to lift a lake up to a cloud city
[Caboose] 11:21 am: I like how Fluttershy of all ponies gets awesome guitar riff background music.
[Dvandom] 11:21 am: You already said that. icon-hotrod.gif
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: did he sound exasperated at "more pound puppies"?
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: (I half expect to get a question about that at the review session)
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: Luna's abacus!
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: Whoah, Spitfire?
[Dvandom] 11:23 am: Ze goggles, zey do nozink!
[Skids] 11:23 am: lol
[Shoggoth] 11:23 am: Sweet horn!
[Arson] 11:23 am: NOPE.
[Arson] 11:24 am: They'll make it to 797.7.

[Dvandom] 11:24 am: Wut
[Dvandom] 11:25 am: Going down flying....
[Arson] 11:25 am: Ponies can do that, you know.
[Dvandom] 11:26 am: Believe in the Kamina who believes in you!
[Arson] 11:26 am: Eh. I was close.
[scavgraphics] 11:26 am: do it for the snazzy goggles!
[Arson] 11:27 am: Whoah, SPITFIRE wasn't even helping!?
[Skids] 11:27 am: She was an impartial judge for the record attempt
[scavgraphics] 11:27 am: so dave, if they didn't have to power than fan, how much more power would they have had?
[Dvandom] 11:28 am: Yeah, the fan, even assuming it was catching backwash and multiplying up, would likely have drained some power.
[Arson] 11:28 am: Well, not Celestia.
[Dvandom] 11:29 am: I woulda gone with a cup anemometer, myself.
[Shoggoth] 11:29 am: That was a pretty cool episode.
[Skids] 11:29 am: yep
[Guardian Prime] 11:29 am: Awesome Episode icon-hotrod.gif
[Dvandom] 11:30 am: Anyone catch the name of Steroid Pony?
[scavgraphics] 11:30 am: forrest animals cosplay as ponies!
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: I need those butterflys for cargo lifting
[Nayuki] 11:30 am: he didn't get a name, he was more of a visual gag
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: YEAH!
[Guardian Prime] 11:31 am: I'll call steroid pony.....'Bulk'. At least until somepony comes up with one better.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: So, Gabby Gums is one of the Mane Six?
[Shoggoth] 11:31 am: No, Gummy.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Heh
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Makes sense.
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: well, Pinkie and Dash weren't in the commerical
[Skids] 11:32 am: Gummy the ventriloquist
[Caboose] 11:32 am: Call him Bulkhead.
[Caboose] 11:32 am: http://tfwiki.net/wi...khead_(Energon)
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: though I'm guessing it's the CMC
[Shoggoth] 11:32 am: No, just writing. No need to talk. Yet I thought the teasers already said it was the CMC?
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: seemed to be a student made paper, i thought
[Shoggoth] 11:33 am: I will say I liked the bronze effect on cloudsdale that they had going on
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Yeah, the next episode is "Ponyville Confidential", it's about the CMCs posting this article that talks about other pony's secrets
[Shoggoth] 11:34 am: That fit in with that retro pep talk video from the start
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Or something like that.
[Dvandom] 11:35 am: But that's not important.
[scavgraphics] 11:36 am: so there was a groucho marx pony at some point
[Skids] 11:36 am: and the three stooges ponies
[Dvandom] 11:36 am: And a Steve Martin, for the arrow in the head gag in S1.
[Dvandom] 11:37 am: (Yes, I know he didn't originate it)
[Dvandom] 11:38 am: Yep, Tartauros.

That...

Was...

AMAZING!

Totally made up for last week! This episode had everything! Good jokes, fun callbacks, & an emotional thrill ride.

Fluttershy is not just my favorite pony because she's so cute & lovable. But because I connect with her as a character. I wasn't good at sports when I was little, I was picked on in school, I hardly talk so in this episode I really felt for her.

+ Rainbow Dash was probably at her most in character this entire season. Determined to succeed no matter what the cost. Trying her best to make Fluttershy join with the rest of the pegasi. In fact this along with the reference to their fillyhood past, the scenes between the two are sweet.
+ New BG pegasi! The one that's obviously on steroids was hilarious.
+ The scene where Angel & Fluttershy's other animals cheer up & helped her improve her confidence was sweet. It's a nice reminder that Fluttershy not just takes care of them, but they're Fluttershy's friends and are loyal to her.
+ The montage was epic. I love how one of the animals had a Derpy mask at one point.
+ Twilight not being able to speak squirrel, definitely had to be a PPG reference.
+ Of course, the entire third act was an amazing climax even if I figured how it was gonna go down.

Grade: A+

I believe there are some good ones from this...

That was so freaking good.

"Do I look like I speak squirrel?!"

I now demand Twilight cosplaying as Squirrel Girl.

That is all.

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)


"If on Pegasus turf you should happen to tumble, look out, Unicorns, cause here comes Rumble!"

Slow Fluttershy upload makes Kyle angry and rash. This may well drive me to Tacos.

Hey, are Cloud Chaser and Flitter by any chance twins? They look pretty similar.

Excellent episode. I particularly liked how much RD wanted Fluttershy to get to be a part of the accomplishment. Yes, Dash really wants to do awesome things, but she also wants other ponies to do awesome things. The oh-so-Fluttershy training montage was a lot of fun, and also badger.

Relevant aside: I was autocrossing today--and having a rough time of it my first runs. The last run wasn't enough to win my class, but I brought my time way down from earlier in the day, and it felt great. Appropriate episode to watch when I got home!

Gawds, I was waiting forever for YouTube to put that up. Not exactly a 'fun' episode but a good decent one. I was actually most impressed with Rainbow Dash, except for one (maybe two parts), she was remarkably not obnoxious. She pushed the others hard but she didn't insult anyone or put anyone down or tease (as far as I can recall). I'm proud of Rainbow Dash in this ep, even over Fluttershy.

Fluttershy finally got to be a tree! Teehee! I wonder if it's an intentional callback to that Appaloosa episode? I can't believe she would lie tho. Twice even. Bad Fluttershy! A pox on thee! Fake pox!

Thunderlane? I kept hearing Thunderwing (Transformers ref, lol). Where the heck is Scootaloo? If a little Pegasus like Rumble can be there, why not her?

Who the heck is the benchpressing Pegasus, lol! Was Screwball from the Discord ep there?

Cool training work! I dunno if I wanted an actual song sequence there cuz I can't imagine how it would go. Hmm, ok, maybe as TF Dare or Mulan's Be a Man. Lol at Flutter vs Butter flies! Cool idea using those, Uh, whatchamacallits flower thingys to gauge her own speed. Btw that tree she was crying under looked familiar. Was it used before?

Anemometer, yeah. The big one is a lot of tech tho. They really need hurricanes to make clouds? Celestia is too important to evaporate lakes for Equestria? Boo!

Felt kinda sad that Rainbow Dash was disappointed that she can't break the record due to loss of a few pones. Still, glad she tried. Good thing no one was injured. Yeah, the new pegasus's look great in action!

The story plot is simple and no huge twists of so but I'm just getting back to Fluttershy being proven to be much faster than her performance here. She outflew a weighed down Dash in Discord part 2. She kept pace with her while dragging a cart in the Round Up ep. She was quick when shaking down trees in the Flim Flam gambit. Surely the hurricane, with the rainy fate of all Equestria behind it, is important enough to get her to break her 5.0 wing speed (the meter stopped at 795, right? And her fastest at the track was 2.5 or 2.3? I didn't hear Twilight say anything about it going more than it had to so I'm assuming Fluttershy only did was bare minimum).

Did Angel bunny frown when the squirrel gave the nuts to comfort Fluttershy? Like he didn't want anyone else to comfort her? I wanted him to have more scenes ala being slammed into the tree, lol!

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Flitter (cute ribbon)
Cloudchaser (awesome mane)
Thunderlane
Blossomforth (from toy to show character)
Silverspeed
Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)

edit: No, the big muscle pegasus didn't get an official name. He was more of a visual gag. I guess the fans will have fun with that one.



Thanks for the names! My favourite was the dark blue male pegasus with the Ursa Major cutie-mark. icon-hotrod.gif

And for a minute there, I thought Thunderlane's name was Thunderwing... which would have been even more awesome.

This show keeps coming up with more and more new and great designs every episode. Is it wrong of me to expect toys of these characters? icon-fire.gif (And that reminds me, I need to pick up Blossomforth now...) Muscle-pony was hilarious, and so was the whole WWII-type hurricane documentary/reel.

Great episode! Definately one of my favs from this season!

I presume the "Do I look like I speak squirrel?" line was a shout out to Tara cuz she voiced PPG's Bubbles, who was fluent in squirrel.

Big Large McHuge pony, old projection film, lots and lots of Derpy, flashback to flight school, really fun to watch and laugh along to. icon-hotrod.gif

Was so happy to see Blossomforth, get get a smigen of character (Clumsy?) and even get a few call-outs. Hopefully we can see her freakish neon-pink hedgehog sometime. icon-hotrod.gif

So, WHERE are the re-scored training montages?

I was honestly not expecting that ending, it was very realistic. I thought it would go something like somepony would say "Without the rain water the small animals will starve!" and Fluttershy would be all like O_O and do the entire tornado herself, hence the name "Hurricane Fluttershy" but no, she started out at 0.5, which I just summed up to her being nervous, then through hard work and training went up to 2.3 and at the end when her friends needed her the most, she pushed her self to the limit with 2.7 wing power.

I liked the moral of the story, very good and relatable. Every little bit counts no matter how small it might be.

Every time that muscled pony came on screen I lol'd. Good work on that.

A lot of great scenes, overall very good, I enjoyed immensely! =D

And the reason why chat seems dull is because I'm not their to livin' it up, sillies. I won't be able to be in chat until next month, wait for me then! I miss you all! <3
