• Nightly Roundup #313

    We here at Equestrian Innovations like to make sure that your Roundups are optimized for maximum enjoyment. Through work conducted in our underground research laboratories we can now safely say that this Roundup tonight has been infused with at least 17.28% more science! Don't worry, the tingling you may be feeling is perfectly normal and is certainly not the result of a deadly radiation meant to stimulate you into liking the Roundup.

    Time for some news while I gather data on this scientific endeavor!

    City of Heroes Pony Reference

    Apparently in the keynote online presentation for City of Heroes a possible reference to ponies has popped up on an ingame movie poster. Ponies really do seem to be taking over everything. Is it even a surprise at this point?

    To check it out for yourself, you can find the picture under New Annual Event at the website here.

    Philippine BronyCon 2012

    In the Philippines it appears that their version of our BronyCon was a huge success with much fun had by all. Check out the copy paste below for the whole scoop plus links to pictures and video of the event!

    Copy Paste:

    On March 31, 2012 The first ever Philippine Bronycon was held and it was, in many of the attendee's opinions, The Best Night Ever! There were many bonding activities as well as several games including a Pinata of Trixie wherein she was smacked by a Baseball Bat of Murder Death. There were also many merchandising booths, including an almost Applejack-like stall which sold Apple Pies, Cakes, Cupcakes and more. The artists were active as well, doing on-the-spot commissions and teaching us some tips on how to draw Ponies. The Pony Chorus also did their rendition of songs from the show, including Smile Smile Smile, Winter Wrap Up, Art of the Dress, Friendship is Magic intro remix, Giggle at the Ghosties, So many wonders and more. At the end of the night, everypony just partied like Pinkie and we ended up breaking 3 Wine Glasses of the Hotel where we held the con. HERP DERP. All in all, the con was a Great and Powerful success for us and we all had the time of our Brony Lives.
    If ever you see Princess Celestia, please thank her for us.

    Another Pony Reference in Runescape

    Yet another pony reference seems to have made it into Runescape with the mention of 'Elements of Harmony'! We reported before in the Roundup some months ago of their use of  '10 seconds flat' and combined with this little tidbit it makes you wonder if there really are a few pony fans on the staff running Runescape. Check out the use of the 'Elements of Harmony' below.
