    Gaming Your 2015 Game(s) of the Year (So far)

    Xenoblade X is great, still only 40% through Mira's exploration and enjoying it. For top game(s) of 2015 I'd have to go with Splatoon for best shooter (suck it Battlefront), Rocket League for best overall. I know, but the multiplayer is so good!
  3. So finished a new song that's been in the works for several months, it's a duet between the Siren Adagio and the Seamare Turquesa in the human world. I'll leave the rest of the story under wraps and/or in the song. Special thanks to Sweetpoffin and Wubcake for the awesome vocals! Hopefully I can get working so I can post there. Vocals: Turquesa - SweetPoffin/Elsie Lovelock Adagio - Wubcake Instrumental: Carbon Maestro Lyrics: JeNnDyLyOn, Carbon Maestro Illustrated by JeNnDyLyOn, Colored by Jacky After Effects: Carbon Maestro Part of a series of songs based off "The Phases of Sunset" by JeNnDyLyOn:
  4. Anyone else getting the upload error below when they upload a song to Every time I upload a .wav file, which is under 200MB, it goes through the entire upload before giving this error. I tried to upload on Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, but to no avail.
  5. So Nintendo brought out this new game idea called Pokken Tournament, due to be released in arcade in 2015 and console after. Obviously, we can't go about saying Lucario, Machamp and (likely) Blaziken (if you saw the leaked picture). What pokemon do you want in Pokken Tournament? Personally, I'd go for every type being represented. A possible list could be like Lucario (Fighting/Steel) Machamp (Fighting) Blaziken (Fighting) Zoroark (Dark) Golurk (Ghost/Ground) Gardevoir (Psychic/Fairy) Charizard (Fire/Flying) Greninja (Water/Dark) Scizor (Bug/Steel) Lopunny (Normal) Sceptile (Grass) Carracosta (Water/Rock) Mewtwo (For the sake of being the final boss) Garchomp (Dragon/Ground) Nidoking (Poison/Ground) Weavile (Dark/Ice) Every type is represented. There's a chance though that this game could probably be all fighting types and I'm totally wrong. Regardless, what pokemon do you want in that game?

    Hai dere everypony!

    Hello! Welcome to the forums. Hope you have a great time here chatting away ponies and stuff! Have a nice day! Here's your first brohoof here /)
  7. I love how no one here wants to hear about that fanmade work of mediocrity (compared to the show). Still great fan animation though. Lots of effort.

    King Sombra Is the only Villain who was not an Idiot

    Sombra never had the ego complex that every villain seems to have...THAT is quite scary for a villain to be collected and aware of his limits. The best bad guys are the ones that are aware of this weakness. Even Tirek was foolish enough to not do enough research on Twilight even though he escaped Tartarus back in Season 2.
  9. Twilight does not have the connections that you might expect. Yes, she's a princess, but there are famous folks IRL who are snubbed because not everyone knows about that person. Try and name the governor of Nevada. Without the entourage, he would just be an ordinary man because I don't even know his name. Justin Bieber is probably unknown to the West Virginian folks who are proud to not have internet. Barrack Obama is still unknown in the rural parts of China (They think Clinton is still president). Think of this situation like that.

    Best and Worst Convention Experiences?

    Best convention experience? I'd have to say when I went to BC this year, where all my flight there got there an hour early, and registration took only a minute with no line. Worst one? San Diego CC. The line this year was terrible, getting a badge was not much easier (it wasn't), and you'll probably spend 6 hours in line for 2 panels. It's kinda sad, really.

    Who hates the word "overrated"?

    Eh, it's opinion. Should we make this the most hated word thread? Answering the question, overrated is a term where people rate things highly, but for others, it doesn't meet expectations. To be honest I'm rather indifferent. It's not that gut wrenching. For me, the really annoying word used on the internet right now is "Epic," because cat videos and Lord of the Rings should not have the same description via the word "EPIC."
  13. Hey guys, Carbon Maestro here, and today I'm a youtuber that'll give you a brief but necessary rundown on what you need to make your money bits! There are those who want to throw money at you (Your fans) and those who want to take your money (i.e. Multichannel networks like Machinima, or Youtube's Adsense) and hopefully you can navigate the dangers of such things! As a Youtuber partner myself making about $240-$300 a month on 60,000 views partnered with a network, I want to let you know that not ALL Youtube channel networks are created equal. Let's start with the basics on terminology. Know these terms before moving on: CPM - cost per thousand (CPT) (in Latin mille, which is thousand), usually used as a measurement for advertising money. MCN - Multi-channel networks. An organization that works with YouTube channels, which can offer money/copyright protection in exchange for a percentage of ad revenue. If you calculated my CPM above from $240-$300 for about 60000 views, you'll find that my CPM is around $4-$5. This is the average amount that you should be getting for thousand views. Now there are two ways that multichannel networks give you money. There's flat rates of MCNs giving you $4 for every 1000 views A Monthly percentage, whether it's 90/10, 80/20, 70/30, 60/40 (You/MCN). Note that with any money making deal, there's a contract. You'll find that some contracts last indefinitely, some 7 years, some 5, and some even 1 year. Make sure you know the length of your contract, because once you signed, there's no going back. Alright, sounds fine and dandy, so long as you meet the requirements of the Youtuber Partnership, right? Well, this is where you have to be careful. MCNs are EVIL. Like, evil enchantresses but if you're poor, a necessary evil. I realized that other topic about a brony song being taken down was because of the MCN Hasbro EST flagged it for copyright. No seriously, the terms that I see nowadays are pretty unfair if you're a Youtuber trying to make money. The thing is that you need to realize that the MCNs give much poorer terms than ever. Back in 2011, MCNs were giving $4 CPMs for new partners. Nowadays? I see these these turkeys giving $0.35 CPMs for new youtubers. Beware of those guys who put you on a 60/40 revenue share contract and give horrible CPMs for 5 years. I can't recommend any single partnership network, but I can say which ones to avoid: Machinima - AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Perpetual contracts that lock you in unfair 60/40 deals for life are a big no. Maker Studios - Try and avoid this one. Any MCN that offers a 60/40 and/or 5 year deals. Here's a short summary of what you should do: Join an MCN that has 70/30 or better. Look for an MCN that is transparent and tells you everything without hiding anything. Shorter 1-2 year deals. This gives you flexibility on networks. Only JOIN a network if you want advertisements and make a little cash every month (In the beginning, it's not much, but with time, diligence, and mostly luck, you'll make more). Realize that in order to make a living off of Youtube, you pretty much need to have 60,000 views A DAY and even then, CPMs have to over $4 to mean something. (Psssst, I've heard Curse is the best network of the bunch!) Sadly, if you're about to sign that $0.35 CPM contract for 5 years, don't. Avoid that. If you have any questions or if you're confused at what MCN you want to join, feel free to ask!

    Movies/TV How do you think "anime" is defined?

    Simple. Anime is a cartoon made in Japan. There are those like the Last Airbender series that emulate it, though it's not called anime. Movies like Frozen and HTTYD are CGI cartoons.

    What If Twilight Became Season 5's Villain?

    DUN DUN DUN!!!! Everything little girls knew about Twilight Sparkle was wrong. The end. On a more serious note, I'd love to see that. Twilight being the villain? Imagine a dark magic Twilight clone that could do the trick.
