    Gender Race

    This is another count game, but with a twist. We start off at 1,000. If you are a female, you add one. For example if the number is 504, and you're a female, post saying 505. If you're a male, you subtract. For example, if the number is 42, post saying 41. The males win if they get to 0, the females win if they get to 2,000. Once a game is over, we start all over again. Okay, so i'll say 1,001 since i'm female. Note: If you don't identify with a specific gender, just pick a gender to support. Victories: Stallions: IIII Mares: II RECORD TIME: TWO FREAKIN' DAYS. GIRLS ARE SCARY.

    Spike Fan Club

    Hub This is Spike. Unlike other characters of the cast, he's a dragon! Commonly known as Twilight Sparkle's number one assistant, he can use his flame breath to send and receive letters from the princess. He's a baby dragon, however he's around the age of the mane six. Twilight is like a mother to him, and his best buddy, Owlowiscious, is a brother, not to mention his pet phoenix Peewee. However, due to being a dragon, his greed can get ahead of him. He's sensitive to being replaced, as it's his worst fear, which is one of the main reasons it took a bit to get along with Owlowiscious. His biggest secret; which you better not tell anypony; is that he has a crush... on Rarity! Gosh, who would've guessed?! Despite being carried away at times, and being a bit of a klutz, he's everypony's reliable and favorite dragon! The Dragon Code: 1. No spamming posts to become the biggest Spike fan. 2. No NSFW, or Not Safe for Work content allowed in the Spike Gang. 3. Why'd you post a Rarity picture here? I know Spike thinks Rarity is hot stuff, but please post Rarity in the Rarity fan club. This club is for only Spike to bask in glory. 4. Do not hate on another fan club/pony: ESPECIALLY Spike. But Spike is so awesome that no one would hate on him anyway. An example would be like if you went onto the Rainbow Dash fanclub and said 'Spike is so much better'! I mean, it is true, but you should talk about how awesome Spike is here, not there 5. I have the fabulous ability to decide if you are doing something inappropriate. If I ask you to stop, please, stahp. 6. All of MLP Forums rules still apply here. 7. Ah! My eyes! Don't post anything inappropriate or explicit! Two ponies (or one pony and one dragon... hint, the pony is a unicorn with purple hair) kissing is cool, but any farther than that is a no-go. Children come on here, think of them. Think of their pure and innocent, not-yet-introduced-to-what-yuri-hentai-or-yaoi-is minds! 8. If somepony saves your life, you are in their eternal debt. We highly advise you to show off fanart/fictions/videos. And obviously if they are shown off, Spike must be the central point. Pony Dragon Post of The Week: N/A Biggest Fan: N/A Tomiix inspired Spike, who inspired me to make this fan club. So go give him a thanks or something else.

    Silver Spoon Fan Club

    WUB A DUB A HUB! Meet Silver Spoon. She, along with Diamond Tiara, likes to bully the Cutie Mark Crusaders, because, oh my gawd, they are so losers for being blank flanks. She decided to harass me into making THE biggest fan club that will ever happen. Ever. I mean, we will be even more popular than the Rarity fan club! Oh my gawd. So, if you think Silver Spoon secretly has a reason that is 100% TRAGIC about why she is bullying the Cutie Mark Crusaders and it's not because they're jerks, you can join us. I mean, maybe Silver Spoon has a crush on Apple Bloom and doesn't know how to express it! ...yeahhhhh. Probably not. But hey, this exists now. Yayyyy! Omigawsh though. She JUST got redeemed in Crusaders of the Lost Mark so i'm SURE there will be a spike in membership! Silver is now batting for the right team, guys. The Rules: 1. No spamming posts to become the biggest fan of the duo. 2. No NSFW, or Not Safe for Work content allowed in the SS Gang. 3. Why'd you post a CMC picture here? This club is for SS only, and so no lame blank flanks allowed. 4. Do not hate on another fan club / pony, especially Silver Spoon. But seriously, who would hate on her anyway? 5. I have the fabulous ability to decide if you are doing something inappropriate. If I ask you to stop, please, stahp. 6. All of MLP Forums rules still apply here. 7. Blank flanks GTFO. We highly advise you to show off fan art. Pony Post of The Week: N/A Biggest Fan: N/A NOTE: SINCE THERE IS ALREADY A DIAMOND TIARA FANCLUB, THIS IS NOW JUST A SILVER SPOON FANCLUB. DARN. Tomiix inspired Silver Spoon, who pretty much harassed me until I made this thread. So thanks. nobody is going to join this

    Gaming Why I hate Majora's Mask

    On the timer, the Song of Reverse Time (play the Song of Time backwards) halves the time of the 3 days, which made it rather easy to do everything you need to do in a cycle. Song of Soaring allows you to get to all the places you need in that cycle quickly, notebook in the remake keeps track of everyone's schedule so you'll only need guides for like, Anju and Kafeki, and the Song of Double Time gets you to those times quicker. The only time you'll feel threatened by the timer is likely during the Great Bay Temple. For the 'losing your money' issue, there's a bank where you can deposit your money so it stays next cycle. As for ammo, it's generally easy to come by and arrows are pretty cheap. The only thing money-wise i'm ever worried about was buying mana potions each cycle, which aren't all too expensive anyway. I personally loved the timer system. The ways they set it up allowed for each day to feel like an actual, real day - shops were closed on different days, people got progressively more scared as the third day approached, different events and such happened on each day, etc. Clock Town felt so alive, because everybody seemed to be going about their lives as if it was an actual town - you could see the construction work being done (and watch it be finished), you could talk to npcs each day and watch their mental state change (personal favorite is visiting the "fearless" dojo mentor in Clock Town about an hour before impact), go to a band that is only coming on a certain day, fend off an alien invasion before they mindfuck Romani and thus you can do different events on the farm for the next two days... I adore the system and I still do today. The game isn't supposed to feel like Ocarina - a cheery, free, adventurous game. It's supposed to feel macabre, hopeless, and claustrophobic. The timer is probably the biggest reason why it has such a dark atmosphere - it's supposed to make you stressed and hopeless at times, and that's why I love it. Easily my favorite Zelda game. Also as for the Souls series - "single mistake screwing up an hour of progress" - i don't really think so. I've played through both Bloodborne and DS3, and they gave you checkpoints generally near each other, and easy to memorize attack patterns/routes so dying once or twice wasn't a big deal. I can understand being anxious about getting your Souls/Blood Echoes back, but in BB I can get about 300k in 15 minutes with chalices and in DS3 there are multiple grinding spots. Can't say anything for DS1 though.

    Gaming Opinions On The Nintendo Switch?

    Again, I totally agree with this post in every way! I love my Wii U and PS4, but the PS4 felt run of the mill (don't regret getting it though, Bloodborne is too good), and the Wii U definitely didn't reach half of its potential. Hopefully the Switch will learn from the U's mistakes.

    Gaming Opinions On The Nintendo Switch?

    @@Kyoshi, IMO, I think it fares extremely well to the Xbone and the PS4. The graphics look very similar, imo the Switch has better ones, and the Switch is portable to boot. Although I haven't seen the graphics in person so I have no clue if that's what they're actually like. Though, I will admit, the X1 and PS Quadruple (tfw no chad) are past gen systems compared to the Switch, so we'll see how it fares up against the Scorpio later!

    Gaming Pokemon Sun and Moon Confirmed

    Starter leaks have been confirmed, then? gg denial"""""friends""""" on /vp/ So far, after looking at the dex, I have to say design-wise, and lore-wise I like Type: Null. Actually, understatement; I LOVE Type:Null. I don't like that thing on the top of Silvally's head, though, but I adore the lore behind it! Probably one of my favorite pokemon released... well, ever so far. And Popplio's evolution is adorable as ever, definitely choosing that.

    Gaming Opinions On The Nintendo Switch?

    @@OmegaBeamOfficial, Great post, I agree with pretty much everything you said! Although the Switch may not be as powerful as Scorpio (although I will admit, more power is good), we should wait until we see the quality of games it produces before passing judgement on if it's worth or not. The Skyrim FPS downgrade was also barely noticeable to me at a glance, but that just may be because I don't put much thought on FPS if it isn't a pure multiplayer game like Overwatch. Also, as a response to your question on the other post (i didn't want to mention you twice lol), I believe Kyoshi was referring to Wii (U). However, 'terrible home console' all rests on opinion; I thoroughly enjoyed my Wii (U) so I don't think either was a terrible home console. However, at first I thought Kyoshi was referring to the sales of the system, which the Wii U bombed on, but the Wii had far from a 'terrible' sale. @@Kyoshi, As someone said in the twitter comments, that could really indicate anything imo. Bethesda all said that they're bringing games to the Switch, or at least heavily implied it, so we def know we're getting some Bethesda games in there. They never really say anywhere that Skyrim isn't coming either; they're just not confirming any specific titles. I get that you're wary of this next system, but i'm not suggesting you give Nintendo a free pass; if anything, I suggest waiting it out and see how the gameplay/games/graphics/whatevs of the Switch fare to others and see if it truly is a 'terrible' system or not. We don't have enough information at this time to determine if the Switch is shit or not, so i'm going to wait to see if it really is or isn't.

    Gaming Opinions On The Nintendo Switch?

    @, tbh i'd guess middle 200s. Maybe 250? I'm super excited for it, honestly! I know i'm gonna get Zelda for the U, so hopefully it has backwards compatibility, and that Splatoon looks gorgeous! Also, since when could you customize hairstyles? Patch or Splatoon 2? I'll wait until next Christmas the earliest to see if it's worth it. But so far? It looks great, and I love the portability aspect of it! Well, to be fair, it is just the release of the system. I would like more release IPs as well, but we can't expect a working demo/teaser of all new Nintendo IPs for the next system on the system release. Maybe they'll release them as time passes and gets closer to the release, or after it. I'm staying hopeful!
  13. I don't know if we had a thread like this, but hey, it never hurts trying. The Solar Empire is led by Celestia, Lunar Republic led by Luna. Saying your allegiance to one is saying you want that pony to be new leader of Equestria. So, what side are you on? I'm on Lunar Republic, of course. Luna FTW. Edit: Added poll If this is in the wrong section or someone already made a topic for this i'm gonna scream

  15. NOA RELEASE DATE: Feb. 19th NOA REVELATIONS RELEASE DATE: Mar. 10th EU RELEASE DATE: TBA takumi, rhajet and azura are the best This is a non-official general thread for the 14th entry in the Fire Emblem franchise; Fire Emblem Fates! Fire Emblem Fates is the story of young Corrin, a half-dragon half-human prince(ss). (S)he has grown up in the gloomy, war-hungry country of Nohr, but it's discovered that they were born in the neighboring, peace-loving Hoshido. When Hoshido and Nohr get into a conflict, Corrin is forced to choose in between the two! If you get the Conquest version, Corrin sides with Nohr, and you work to stop the corrupt Nohr from within. If you get the Birthright version, Corrin sides with Hoshido, and fights off the invading Nohr. However, on March 10th in NOA (or Feb. 19th if you got the SE), the DLC route Revelations is available. In this route, Corrin chooses neither side, and works to stop an invisible force that seems to be pulling the strings. If you are unaware, Fire Emblem is a tactical roleplaying game similar to chess, where you move your army around a map in order to take out enemies using magic, dragons, swords, etc. Units are the people who make up your army that you order around. Units can be spellcasters, dragon riders, humans that can turn into dragons, pegasus riders, swordmasters, thieves, and just about anything in between! If you enjoy chess, tactics, or anything similar, you should look into Fire Emblem! Fire Emblem Awakening, a good game for people looking for a good starting point for Fire Emblem, can be bought on the 3DS. Fates is on the 3DS as well. Other Fire Emblem games can be found on a variety of consoles, from the GBA to normal DS to Wii (Note: the wii games are usually very expensive). Also, no, Marth and Ike are not in this game if you do not have an amiibo. Roy is not in this game at all. Sorry, smashers!

    Gaming Fire Emblem Fates General

    I'm actually playing Conquest on Lunatic and i'm up to the ninja chapter. It's as bad as it sounds. Chapter 10 was insane, thanks based Haitaka, and the only reason i won was because Elise dodged two 90% killing blows. The Asura chapter was annoying as fuck man Later in Conq. Lunatic, Iago gets to infinitely spam the Hexing Rod, ninjas get infinite chain which mean debuffs stack (get ready for -30 def, -40 atk, and -20 spd because of this broken ass skill), Takumi practically gets a 100% chance to rend that heaven, the fox chapter is even more stupidly difficult because of buffs, and pretty hilarious rally happy characters (there's a guy duing the great wall of takumi chapter with every rally except spectrum lol)

    Favorite Boss Battle

    This beauty. This was honestly such a spectacular fight. - A+ intro; the way the dancer slowly untangled herself from the ceiling was chilling. And even more so if you fought her before; I was summoning for Vordt to farm embers and someone went the opposite direction into the dancer. She sure left an impact on me after killing me in one hit. It caused my anticipation for a fair fight with her to rise. - She's gorgeous in general; the way she moves, the veil, her sword(s), it's all perfect. - Sad, sad lore. I'm a sucker for that. - Very, very difficult. All of her attacks do an insane amount of damage, she has a terrifying grab (probably the best in the game), and in her second phase her combos feel almost endless. Her combos look gorgeous as well. You feel so satisfied when you beat her. - She's so much fun to fight, though; her combos are just so fun to dodge through, and her aggressiveness in the second phase means you'll be filled with anticipation the whole fight. In her first phase, although she's more subdued, she can unleash some terrifying attacks (aka her grab with that weirdass hitbox) - 10/10 boss music; although its very simplistic, it intensifies in the second phase. Also her footsteps echo and you can hear her breath, which adds to the music and makes her feel so graceful. - Gorgeous boss arena; it starts to go on fire in the second phase which I thought was a very nice touch. - When you finally defeat her, you get her armor and her weapons (or a miracle). Her armor looks absolutely stunning and her weapons, although not the best, are a blast to use. Overall an amazing boss.

    Gaming Which Is Your Favorite Pokemon Game?

    Pokemon Black/White. - Introduced infinite TMs. - Introduced Hidden Abilities - Has some of my favorite Pokemon characters in it, like N, Ghetsis and Elesa. - Actually very interesting and intriguing plot, with more than a few plot twists I was genuinely impressed by. These being N being the king of Team Plasma (i thought it was obvious he was a member, but didn't expect him to be the leader), Ghetsis being the biggest asshole ever created, and you and N being the heroes of the dragons. There were a few other welcome surprises as well, such as Caitlin from DPP being a member of the Elite Four, Cynthia, the first gym having three leaders, etc. - On another note, Team Plasma had a rad theme and pretty understandable motivations on the surface. - Introduced Triple Battles, and to a lesser extent Rotation Battles - Allowed the player to battle the E4 in any order, which is great because I can get the pushovers out of the way before going onto the more difficult ones. - Don't lie, the N battle at the end where both of your dragons one-on-oned at the start was badass. You actually got to fight the other half of the legendary duo, which was really cool. - Sprite animations. Those games were my childhood. Really got me into storytelling. Ending makes me cry every time. Gameplay's fun too. Grovyle and Celebi still hold a special place inside my heart, and so does Dusknoir after the last special episode. These games are so underrated >_<

    Movies/TV Voltron (2016) Legendary Defender

    I binged it a few days ago, and it's amazing! My favorite character is probably Shiro right now, there are so many cool directions the writers can take with him based on his backstory and that arm and his relation with the Galra. I'm really interested to see where they take Keith as well; I for one hope the Keith is Lotor/Galra theory is true, it would open up such a cool and interesting plotline. Basically it's a great show and I can't wait for season 2/season 1 part 2!
  22. Favorite is T&T, loved the cases and how story-driven it was. And Godot is such a great prosecutor as well. Final case blew me away, although I think the first game's last case (Ema and Lana Skye's case) was the best. Unlike a lot of people, I surprisingly really liked JFA; it's final case in particular was fantastic. And it has my favorite prosecutor in it as well. Turnabout Big Top did kinda stink, though; Regina was such an insufferable brat that I really sympathized with the killer's actions. And I really liked the killer too; (s)he's motive actually made me root for them. Although I liked it, Apollo, I felt had the weakest cases; I really disliked the one with the Guitar; was it called Turnabout Serenade? I dunno, I just really disliked that one. And the final case, although amazing, felt a little weaker than the others. The characters were good too, although I kinda missed a prosecutor that hated your guts one way or another.
