Episode 45 - It's That Time Again

Episode 45 - It's That Time Again

Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?  The phrase "It's that time again."  Like, specifically, how they say that in commercials and ads and stuff.  "It's that time again!  Time to do your Christmas shopping!"  "It's that time again!  Time to get out your 4th of July barbecue sh*t!"  "It's that time again!  Time to go back-to-school shopping!"  "It's that time again!  Time to do your taxes!" It's always some time again.  Stop announcing that as if it's some marvelous, incredible, surpris
 

Development Update 8/27/2019

HEY HEY HEY! It's been a while, hasn't it? But it looks like some new stuff is being added to the game, as well as some exciting new changes! And there's a few things here I can't WAIT to tell you about!   *** NEW AREAS *** With the completion of the San Palomino Desert area, I've managed to incorporate a proper world map into the game, using an actual map of Equestria I picked up offline! Different colored markers on the map will lead you to different places: - Green Markers:

Rarity fursuit pt. 1; wiring

I was originally gonna make a punk Rarity suit (from that one episode of MLP), but I couldn't find a purple leather jacket that looked quite right and I don't really feel comfortable making it from scratch. So instead, I'm opting to go the route of dealing with her normal, incredibly difficult to make mane since I'm fairly confident I can make that look at least decent. Also, if I make the mane magnetic I can make the punk Rarity suit in the future just by making the mane, tail, and clothing, wh

How I got into FIM

It looks like I never explained how I got into MLP, so with the show ending I figured now is a good time to do that. I will also explain what the show means to me and try to understand why it has become a phenomenon. I think the year was 2012. I know I had gone to BronyCan in 2013 after going to BronyCon, and I don’t remember how many BronyCons I had been to before that. But I guess the exact year doesn’t matter. I was visiting with a friend in Baltimore (of all places!). I had brought 2 ot
 

Canterlot

There are few even among scholars of Trojan history that have come to understand the true depth of the relationship between Canterlot and Troy. Many are simply content to label them as rivals, given their respective nations were such, and thus lose the more basic nature of their relationship. As many forget, Canterlot was not always the capital of Equestria. It only became the capital a few years after Nightmare Moon, when Princess Celestia decided to abandon the old capital in the wake of the t

"God Help the Outcasts"

The Hunchback of Notre Dame's one of Disney's most underrated and best animated musicals. Darker than normal, but wrought with plenty of humor, drama, and emotion. One of the most down-to-earth, emotional songs ever published by Disney comes from this movie: God Help the Outcasts.

Marching band memories,sophomore year

This was by far my least spectacular year. Not only did I not make many memories, I just didn't enjoy marching band quite so much that year. But man, am I glad I stuck with it nonetheless. My best friend finally joined My childhood friend had planned to join marching band our freshman year, but for whatever reason (laziness, I think) he only showed up to the first practice. He actually stuck with it that year, and we had so much fun just messing around. We started a tradition at band

Review of A Trivial Pursuit

This episode had a very good start. Twilight is being so Twilight in this episode, it's absolutely fantastic... at first. Pinkie is, of course being totally Pinkie. I love the fact that AJ and Rainbow Dash are being over the top as usual when it comes to being competitive. Twilight continues totally over the top by using the dumbest rules ever. Twilight continues to be a jerk to Pinkie throughout the episode however, getting Pinkie disqualified from the game purposefully. This entire episode bas

References, Outside or Otherwise

One of the most refreshing things I’ve found as a writer is the ability to add in references to outside media, current events, etc. A well placed reference is fun to toss in, rewarding when found by the reader, and can give your ego a good pat when it’s recognized by the reader. Most of the time trivia and references are just added for extra “flavor,” though building a plot using a simple reference is not unheard of.  However, as with everything else, it’s possible to overdo or ham up a ref
 

A Frustrating Element of EQG

One of the most frustrating aspects of EQG for me is that Sunset Shimmer keeps either being in the right with characters and the movie treating her like she was in the wrong or getting unfairly accused of something by characters or the movie.  In Rainbow Rocks, while the school's behavior and the Dazzling's behavior are reasonable, Vice Principal Luna made a really unfair assumption of Sunset at the beginning when the Dazzlings were still relatively weak, and the Rainbooms after "Awesome As I Wa

Random Facts About Me (No, Nothing Nasty - Stop It)

As a kid, I designed a vehicle, driver and power for the M.A.S.K. line of toys (concept on paper, in pencil AND crayon, because I was a creative kiddo), and sent it in to the Kenner Corporation.  I received a letter back from them, stating that they would keep it on file, and they appreciated my interest - a stock 'thanks' letter, in other words.  Several months later, they released a new toy in the line that was, essentially, my design - right down to the mask's power.  The vehicle was named th

Revisting Classic SpongeBob

I did this in the form of a tier list a few months ago, and I've decided that format really doesn't befit rating episodes of this series (at least the first 3 seasons...  4 was alright, but quite a few post-S5 episodes will be in my nightmares). I am redoing it. First off, because I've watched more SpongeBob since and secondly, I was again inspired to do so, this time by a Cosmodore video counting down all the episodes from worst to best (that he posted all the way back in 2017).

episode review "A Trivial Pursuit" Quickieview

Note: Credits to @Cwanky and @OptimisticNeighsayer for this quickieview. After Dash had one of the most insufferable appearances of the series, A Trivial Pursuit is somewhat a return to form for Season 9. The best part, bar none, is Twilight's arc. While Lesson Zero slowly progressed Twilight into insanity, Twilight began to feel the pressure before the cold open; Spike's attempts to reassure himself and Twilight's obsessive grin and eyes give that away so quickly.

Red Dead Retribution

Red Dead Retribution

Nothing would please me more than to reach a point where I don't feel the need to talk about religion anymore.  Every time I write about it, I tell myself that it will be my final word, and that I will move on to other things.  And yet, I cannot resist coming back to it given the kind of insanity I see on an almost daily basis.  The other day, in the newspaper, I read an opinion piece by a local resident saying how America will always be a Christian nation, no matter how long time goes on for, a
 

Mare Grace

Of course, no history of Troy or Trojan Horse would be complete without his counterpart and wife Mare Grace. Despite the norms of the time she rose to be a prominent figure in history, an equal in all respects to Trojan himself. Her past is a bit better known than Trojan's, given her rather prestigious upbringing under the famous Lord Rasputin Stalliongrad, the very same featured in countless works of theater and the subject of speculation by many historians. Through my own research into her fam

**URGENT NEWS**

I've been avoiding posting any more updates to the games progress mainly because of a serious issue I ran into some time ago, and that still hasn't been fixed for a long time now.   The problem is: I can't find anyone to work on the tilesets for the game. It's really been halting the games progress.   I've handled the problem myself alright thus far, but now that we're in the main part of Equestria itself, I just can't handle it on my own anymore. I really need help here.

Another devlog went up and I want the world to know about it. See the full Patreon Exclusive post here! Otherwise come get a brief summary of the game's progress on the Yotes Games Blog.
