Welp, I'm out. Those were a fantastic few years, but a line needs to be drawn somewhere.
As amazing as the show was and still is, to me the fanworks accounted for a large part of overall appeal. So, before Hasbro's legal thugs decide to take the axe to fimfiction.net or derpiboo.ru while I'm still around, I'm bowing out now. It's a shame, since I still love the series and am aware of Hasbro's indifference towards that, but I feel like it's the only way to make my displeasure known.
You are all lovely people and I wish you all the best for the future, whereever it may take you.

I'm sure other things happened in this episode, but there's one thing that was seared into my mind: "Applejack in latex stockings. Holy Shit!"

So, yeah. *shrug* Not a fan, to be honest. To me it was basically Twilight Time part II: Breezie Boogaloo; wierdly predictable, sorta funny and yet aggressivly boring, which I didn't even consider possible before.
It wasn't all bad though. I mean, it still wasn't as bad as Daring Don't, the only episode I actively loathe.
The breezies I liked, what with them being shiftless, work-shy tossers. Their visual and sound design was great, as was the entire episode's.
Still, I really, *really* hope that next week is a return to form.

Well, that one sure ...existed.
Quite 'meh' on all accounts, to me at least. Quite funny, sorta wierd, fairly liberal with established fluff.
I don't loathe it like I do with Daring Don't, but it leaves me cold like Bats! did, and that one at least had a great song.
In short, it's a Dave Polsky episode to the core. 'Rarity takes Manehatten' this was not.

So, yeah. That was ...okay. Not too bad, not too good. Just sorta average by the admittedly high standards of this season. Honestly, in many ways it felt more like a throwback to S1 than anything else. Quite funny, sorta wierd, not overly concerned with established stuff.
In short, it's a Dave Polsky episode. Can't be all al phenomenal as Rarity takes Manehatten, I suppose.

They are official, yes. Amy Keating Rogers twitter'd that a bit ago.
As for the toe thing, it could be argued that each hoof is actually a toe, I think.

Daring Don't. I loathed the episode when I first saw it, and that only grew worse since then. It effortlessly displaced Games Ponies Play as my least favorite episode.

Excellent. A fun, fanservice-y romp without many issues. I enjoyed it immensly. The Ponytones came out of nowhere, but worked surprisingly well. Why knew Rarity and Big Macintosh shared a hobby like that? Toe-tapper and Torch Song were nice, too. Not to mention the astounding songs...
Yeah, another amazing episode in the bag. Fourteen episodes down, and only one real dud so far. I so hope that quota holds up for the rest of the season.

I... I can't believe I am saying this... but... but this might actually be okay-ish? I mean, it certainly *looks* good, but then again, faces aside, EQG's problem wasn't in the way it *looked*. If they manage a story that doesn't make me want to claw out my brain, I might actually be looking forward to this. Color me baffled.
I am still totally down with the outfits, though. Much nostalgia.

How exactly is this 'EQD related stuff'? Because a developer sent an email shilling a potential new game that has literally NOTHING to do with the target of the site?
To me, that's not 'EQD related stuff', that's a savy developer fishing for some easy money. By going through the most important MLP site they reach a massive audience at no cost whatsoever to them; an audience that is well known for generosity and support of projects they like. As far as marketing ploys go, this is brilliant - the fact that there is so much discussion about the post is proof that the shaky connection of 'horse = MLP-related' holds up well enough.
This might be a quite cynical view of things, but the gaming industry has made me wary in the last few years. I don't know. maybe I am just bitter...
