• Nightly Roundup #523

    I'm feeling rather tired tonight so have something random. I can only imagine what sort of clothing Rarity could create if she had the powers of an alicorn on her side!

    Time to round up some news! Check it out after the break.

    MLP RPG Update

    Runescape Update References Pony

    Even more ponies in video games, this time in the online game Runescape after a recent update! According to the person who sent it in these are the specific changes that were made that were pony related:

    -A whole lot of the possible names for player-owned ships (e.g. nightmare moon, element of harmony, twilight sparkle, and some others)
    -An entire archipelago named after the mane6 with subtle references to their respective pony (like the deliberate misspelling of winds as wings for the island "ren bo"
    -A Spitfire ram as a customisable object (not necessarily a reference, but knowing the developer it is)

    Pony Reference in Retro Unicorn Attack?

    Robot Unicorn is a classic in the realm of online flash games and in a recent release of a retro version of the classic game a possible pony reference has revealed itself. Apparently in the instructions that can be found on the title screen, Rainbow Attack has been changed to Rainbow Dash in the retro version. Take a look below for the evidence.

    Considering ponies have been referenced by Adult Swim before it isn't a big leap to make the assumption that this really is a pony reference. What do you guys think?

    Successful Meetups

    Stuttgart, Germany Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    In celebration of a very special year coming to an end, 50 Bronies met at Stuttgart central station, our beloved meetup hive. New friends were made, The GalaCon took place, many major and minor meetups took place, the BroniesE.V. was founded and many episodes of my Little Pony: Friendship is magic were enjoyed together – reason enough to celebrate. The next tradition is the visit of our local drugstore – the staff there is getting used to us as well and prepared 8 boxes of wave 5 blindbags for the herd. The stunned faces of stuffers and Christmas shoppers were priceless. Yet another meetup tradition is the usual bowling session with too many pony references and tons of fun. The obligatory photo was made in the parking lot due to the limited space for 50 bronies. Two wonderful plushies (Twilight and Fluttershy (sadly not Trixie –even though I asked for her o O)) were auctioned as well as the meetup poster signed by all participants. The evening ended in a local party cellar where we enjoyed the new episode together and discussed the brilliant parts of Scoots, Luna, Rainbow, Rarity, Sweetiebot and all our beloved Pony Friends. All of us had a great time together once again. I promise that this wasn’t the last meetup in Galacon City –Stuttgart, Germany. Maybe we’ll see you in April for the second GalaCon.
    Special thanks to Bronies.de for the platform to organize the meetups and Bronies E.V. for financial support.
