It's out! Go here!
It looks like we finally have a rough estimate for the release of the Android version of the My Little Pony Gameloft Game. TheSlorg decided to tweet at them and received this in response:
@theslorg Hi there! It should be available before the end of the day, thanks for your patience :)
If it follows the iOS Release, we should see it some time throughout the next two days everywhere else.
It's out! Go here!
These comics just keep expanding. A new map was included on the Jetpack Comics issue #2 blank over on their list page. It's looking to be a parody of the Appalachian Mountains. This could be the long awaited Changeling Empire, though only time will tell.
Find it here!
EQI ran a Ponycision 2012 event the other day, and this is the recording! All info below!
Deviant Art Version
"Ponycision 2012 will finally decide who will be the Princess of Equestria! Ponies across the kingdom have cast their ballots and the fate of who will lead Equestria for the next 1000 year term hangs in the balance. Will it be Princess Luna? Princess Celestia? Join the EQI team for full coverage of the voting and the conclusion of Ponycision 2012! (note: the print issue contains a spoiler)"Video below the break!
The Traveling Pony Museum is holding a livestream fundraiser event on Sunday for all the victims of Hurricane Sandy (Or is it Superstorm Sandy? I can't tell what they are calling it these days!).
Head on down past the break for scheduling and all information on how you can join in!

Description: It's one thing to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. It's something quite different to worry that it doesn't have a right side anymore. Stuck in an artistic rut, Rarity has to rely on an unlikely friend to understand who she is, and in doing so, discovers that what we want may not always be obvious, even to oneself.
There may or may not be an excess of hats involved, and fabulosity is guaranteed.

Anyway, check it out on their facebook page!
The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions Plato is a statue, so have a statue.
Head on over here to check it out!
Thanks to Aaron for the submit!
Midtown Comics is having a launch party on the 28th at 6:30 in New York. It looks like they have grabbed Stephanie Buscema, creator of some of the variant covers for the series, as someone to bug for signatures while you are there!
Head on over to their facebook event page if you want in!
Happy Twilight Sparkle edition! Can you get any better than that? I don't think so.
Also, Pixelkitties made us another banner in honor of the new James Bond film. One of these days I'm going to hit the theater up and catch all the movies I've been missing...
The Larrys/Jetpack shared comic variant for Issue #2 has been revealed. There isn't a price or anything related yet, right now they have only listed it on Lockerz. I'm sure it will pop up soon though!
Thanks to Joseph for the heads up!
Update: Finished one side versions
I'm just going to come out and say it right now, this is probably the best cover ever. Not even Rainbow Dash on a snowboard can beat it!
This specific variant is for Issue #2, to be released in December on the 19th. I have a feeling its not going to last long based on how popular Doctor Whooves is.
Find it here.
Thanks to Alex for the heads up!
And if you want to check out the other covers and where to get them, hit up our compilation.
It looks like we get to do one of those crazy Q&A Things tomorrow via The Hub's Twitter account. Tara Strong has agreed to answer questions for the masses at 3:45 PM ET:
Less than 48 hours till the new season of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic! Fire up your season three questions for Tara Strong (Twilight Sparkle) as she takes over The Hub's Twitter account (@hubtvnetwork) tomorrow at 3:45pm ET!Find their twitter here!
Thanks to Brian for the heads up.
If you are stuck without an android game like myself, you need to improvise!
The Hub has posted up a new game called "Twilight Sparkle's Magical Mysteries". It looks like a scrabble style game, where you create words out of a set of letters.
Head on over here to play it!
Thanks to Whatshisgame for the heads up!
Dang, Celestia's rolling in dough.
As you might have noticed, Gameloft's new iOS game has hit the US market. If you have an iOS device, you should be social and add some friends! I've only had time to play with the game superficially (expect a full review when I'm not buried in schoolwork) but I think I've figured out how this stuff works.
Firstly, you'll need a Gameloft Live account. You can make one in the app by tapping on the horseshoe in the upper right and hitting 'Social'. Once you've made an account, back out of that menu, go back to the horseshoe, and hit 'GL LIVE!'. That'll take you to a place where you can add friends. As far as I can tell, because they have Celestia as a default example friend, you can see your friends' villages and gift each other resources. I'm sure if I poked around more that there's more functionality, but I'll leave that for you guys to discover!
By the way, if you want to add me, my name is CerealVelocity. Don't expect me to be playing too often in the near future, though. Midterms are terrible.
The game is currently available for the iOS platform only. There's no sign of an Android version.
As a side note: we're having problems with Twitter and Facebook accounts on EQD's comment system. I recommend making an IntenseDebate account to comment. It seems to be less buggy. Nothing we can do about it! Sorry.
Time for more of that random merch! Today we start off with this soundbook from Lidl in Germany submitted by Ramott. I remember these things as a kid, they usually broke within a week for me. Hopefully new ones are higher quality!
Have some random merch!

Description: To save her sister and her faithful student, Celestia herself must travel into the ancient tunnels beneath the ruined castle in the Everfree Forest. She, and the guards who accompany her, must face the dark, twisting corridors. Still, what was Luna and Twilight's purpose at the old castle? Why were they unable to return of their own accord?
And what watches Celestia from beyond the light's edge?

I make the same face as Twi every time I read a new chapter in my Neuroscience book or when we have an undecipherable paper for journal club (fun times!).
Comics coming at you. You can read them while Twi figures out what to do above. Click for full as always!
Studying would be a lot more fun for me if I could relax in a hammock suspended in the air by stars. Unfortunately I have neither stars or even a hammock so I guess it's my loss.
Time for a brief Roundup tonight folks, so check it out after the break. I have also taken the liberty of getting our numbering back on track so huzzah to that (Bad Seth! Bad pony! *bop*)
