Apparently, there's a fan JRPG being made about MLP. You can find the link here.
I watched the trailer, and by the universe, a lot of effort has been put into this game, the graphics the sound, it reminds me of Pokemon or Earthbound.
But the game sets me off for one reason. Super LESBIAN? horse rpg.
The name is plain ridiculous! Even if it was called straight, gay, bi or trans horse rpg, it would still sound disturbing. I know a point of the game is shipping, but come on, it's names like this that make people have second thoughts of joining the fandom. Not to mention, I feel as if the name is unintentionally homophobic. I'm pro LGBT rights by a long shot, but there's more to LGBT people than romance.
I just find the idea of the Mane 6 being gay at once ridiculous. Yes they are close, but that doesn't mean they're in love. Being a homo or bisexual is the result of genetics and the idea that all 6 of them have the same gene is stupid and just as bad as thinking that being gay is a sin.
Besides, why do we have to settle for just lesbian ships? We have SoarinDash, FlutterMac, FlashLight, RariSpike and DiscordPie fans as well. I get the feeling someone is dragging they're sexual fetishes into a game. (sorry if that was inappropriate.) Although I know that's not the case and the point is to make a great game.
The only way we can get over the LGBT and Straight divide is if we start making media where both are represented equally. Let me have PinkieDash in addition to SoarinJack or NeonScratch in addition to LyraBon.
Don't get me wrong. This game looks AMAZING. I will play the game with all my love, but will avoid shipping missions and focus on adventure IF possible. You should play it too.
