Time for some cute fillies because who doesn't want some cute pony to say good night or good morning to before you read the news?
Yep, Calpain here for another Roundup as we continue our search of the facility for PK. Funny thing is that we still get Roundup reports from him at times despite his disappearance. Must be he's using the mobile device we installed in him to communicate with the outside world.
Anyhow, sort of a short Roundup tonight so have some quick news!
While I may not be much of a fanfic reader myself I still think this is pretty cool. A brony out there took a detailed look at the EqD story archive and came up with an amazing analysis of the stories featured on the site, coming up with all sorts of bar graphs and charts for us to muse over!
So if you were ever curious about how many different types of fics there are or which character has the most fics made for them then make sure to check out the full chart after the break!
You know the drill! Time for some onion news! Embed after the break, and PDF here.
"The Equestria Inquirer profiles the danger that is Fluttershy! Also, Princess Luna declares her candidacy for Princess of Equestria under the New Lunar Republic, TechRat shows how Applejack bucks with the best, and Truthy talks about a twin set of disasters. Thanks for reading!"
Description: Princess Celestia is a living legend, but much of her life is shrouded in mystery. Records have long since been lost to the decay of time, and the tale of her triumph over Discord has become a fable. The Princess’s memory of the event has long since faded… or has it?The Stranger and Her Friend (New Part 26!)
Her faithful student lending an eager ear, Celestia recounts the true story of a war-torn Equestria, the struggle against Discord, and the early years of her own life.
Before she was the Princess of the Sun, she was merely a stranger.

That was quick! We bugged Shout Factory about the DVD, and they sent over a press release on it. Digging through the text within, it appears to be a compilation of the following episodes:
- A Canterlot Wedding Part 1
- A Canterlot Wedding Part 2
- Hearts and hooves Day
- Sweet and Elite
- The Best Night Ever
The actual bonus features are a bit vague, but if the Friendship Express DVD was any indication, this one is probably going to have something pretty cool. Maybe another extended theme or something? Who knows!
And on to the neat informative bit:
Love is in the air… it’s time to celebrate a royal wedding! My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding is coming to DVD on August 7, 2012 from Shout! Factory in collaboration with Hasbro Studios. My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding features 5 episodes that everypony will love, including “A Canterlot Wedding, Part 1,” “A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2,” “Hearts And Hooves Day,” “Sweet & Elite,” and “The Best Night Ever.” Bonus features will include a coloring sheet and more!

Music Remix: Nightmare Night (Symphonic Metal Cover) / Other Animals / Love is In Bloom (honeymoon cover)

Anyway, have some music remixes!

3.) Love is In Bloom (honeymoon cover)
Description: Young Shining Dawn is very excited when she hears that Princess Celestia is coming to visit Ponyville. But for Sweetie Belle, her grandmother, the visit carries much deeper significance, especially when she learns that her old friends Scootaloo and Applebloom are also coming, and that the Princess is here on a very special visit for Grandmother Twilight.Quite Ready for Another Adventure

It looks like the next installment of the Shout factory pony lineup is on it's way on the 7th of August. A DVD titled "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding" is now listed for a cool $10.48.
Reading the description on it, at 120 minutes we can probably expect a few bonus episodes to go with the two part season finale. It also rolls with region 1 once again, so those without unlocked DVD players outside the USA probably won't be able to play it. Considering the trend out there is box sets though, I bet you guys aren't too worried!
Head on over to Amazon if you want to take a look at the page yourself or toss a pre-order out!
Update: Images have been Added to the auction
I'd eat a Zap Apple. Normal apples are so boring.
I think this painting would fit perfectly into one of those high class art galleries. The sections that isn't filled with completely off the wall stuff at least.
Gilda sure is goofy looking.
Just a quick heads up to everone on story submissions. Right now we are completely flooded. Even the approved story queue is sitting at around 9 in line right now. It might be best to wait a week or so before sending stuff in.
Anyway, have some updates!
Dear Princess Celestia,
Bronycon has a ridiculous amount of people to track down and have sign things
Your Faithful Student
P.S. This con is going to be completely crazy!
Have some copy paste:
Last night, during the BronyCon Livestream, our special guest Peter New (voice of Big Macintosh), gave us the good word that our Princess of the Sun will be in attendance at BronyCon, and he’s right! Nicole Oliver, voice of Princess Celestia, will be gracing us with her presence as a Guest of Honor at BronyCon Summer 2012. Nicole is a great addition to an already star-studded guest list, and another great reason why BronyCon is the place to be!-BronyCon Summer 2012
For a full list of Guests of Honor, and to keep up with the latest in all things BronyCon, be sure to check http://www.bronycon.org and http://www.meetup.com/bronycon!
In addition, for those of you that missed last night’s livestream, but still want to hear what Big Macintosh had to say for himself, you can find the recording at http://www.livestream.com/feulnerplays. He talks a little bit about how he got into voice acting, what the process for recording voices is, and gives us a few new in-character lines; so get your soundboards ready!

You comic artists sure are pumping these things out quick lately! Have some Trixie being ridiculous, Rainbow Dash being genetic, and a royal wedding special.

All you bullethell lovers might find something to enjoy here. It looks like yet another pony variation of the genre is in progress. Right now there is a full 18 minute demo video of it up on Youtube.
I have to admit, I did really enjoy that Jamestown game on Steam. I might have to try this out once its complete!
Check the video out after the break!
Have some instrumental tracks.

Description: Ponyville is being threatened by the ravaging gang of drakes, Krastos’ Krew, looking to eat the town out of house and home! Brute force won’t work against these creatures, but Twilight Sparkle comes up with a plan to end their threat once and for all. A plan that rests on the shoulders of...Fluttershy?!Krastos' Krew

As many have reminded me over the last few days, today (or yesterday/tomorrow) is Pinkie Pie's birthday. How was this determined? You may remember 75 days ago when "A Friend in Deed" aired, and Pinkie Pie announced to the world that her birthday wasn't for another 75 days. We have hit that, so it's time for a hostile party pony takeover!
Now go celebrate, and eat cake. We all love cake. You should probably dye the frosting pink though.
Thanks to Mealjo for the banner!
Those crazy Italian bronies have released their interview they did with William Anderson. Some of the audio is a bit off, but overall its interesting as always!
And they have cool accents, just sayin.
Have a link after the break!
We posted about Project Pony about a few weeks ago, and again pretty recently, but this is the first time the actual special guests have been announced. It looks like Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball, Andrea Libman, and Cathy Weseluck will all be there! That's a tough group to beat!
Tickets are still available over here. So, go buy some!
