The Hub's Equestrivia Challenge game has been updated with the 5th pony. Granny Smith has a pretty big kick on her for those sparkly ball games. I'm not sure if the ponies you use actually make a different there though!
Thanks to Candygram for the heads up. Go play Equestrivia here.
I don't know if I would dance with the sun, but that's a pretty damn catchy beat in the first slot. If you like electronic stuff, be sure to check it out. And in the second slot, we have a metal track dedicated to "Sleepless in Ponyville" and it's dreamscapey creepyness. Get them both below!
1.) Dancing With The Sun
2.) Face your Fears
December was an interesting month for pony. With the holiday season in full swing and the increased internet traffic that brings, Friendship is Magic saw an even bigger boost for the month.
Look Before You Sleep was an episode that some hated and others loved. The entire thing took place in a single location with just the banter between two of the least liked ponies at the time to drive it forward. Applejack and Rarity were slowly growing on people thanks to their antics in Dragonshy and Applebuck Season, but they weren't nearly as popular as the others.
Luckily, Twilight Sparkle was here to save the day with a brand new descriptive term for the unicorn: Adorkable. In a fandom filled with geeks and nerds, Twilight Sparkle with her blossoming OCD and Guide to Sleepovers took over the pony world for weeks to come.
Oh, and this happened:
Anyway, get your daily dose of apples, fashion, and adorkable below the break! How did you initially react to this episode?
After announcing them months ago, Enterplay has finally revealed their dog tag set. Luckily for us, they added some pretty awesome images to these thing, avoiding the stock vectors we are usually stuck with on the dog tag merch completely.
Each pack includes a dog tag, tatoo set, decal sticker, and a checklist. They also have a deluxe tag set, 8 versions in all. These come in packs of two (Top right image).
Hit up their Facebook if you want to toss some comments their way or request future characters. Thanks to Carlo for the heads up!
The Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry did an interview thing on the NFL website about his fear of horses. At around the 4:30 mark, there is an entire section with MLP clips, though nothing about the show itself. It's still pretty neat to see colorful equines on something like football.
Hit the video up here! Thanks to everyone that sent it and Riley for the video link!
Similiar to those other posters from each season, Zelc-Face released a poster highlighting all the show staff. I don't know if we ever posted the original, but this updated version does a good job of showing off each of their psersonal ponies based on names. I guess this would be a good thing for those brithday events we tend to run, or a good one to get signed at conventions.
So which one has the best pony? I'm leaning toward Tabitha St. Germain's at the moment. I guess I'm just weak to blue ponies or something.
Funko figure collectors probably shouldn't miss this one. The Toys R' Us exclusive Spitfire is available now on their website. With how spread out the brick and mortar stores are these days, shes a tough one to get a hold of.
Get it over here!
Thanks to NIARTcar and Matt for the heads up
I just got done reading this. If you have ever played any type of pen and paper RPG or had any sort of nerdy obsession in school that everyone thought was crazy, you need to read it too. It's amazing so far. That and a completely crazy cutie mark origin story buried within.
Anyway, have some links:

Synthis has only been around for a short while (or at least his Youtube channel has) but every song he makes seems to improve over the last. Do we have a replacement to Tombstone now that he is done with pony music? I guess season 4 and it's influx of music listeners and remixes will be where we find out! If you like electronic vocal stuff, be sure to give that first one a shot.
And if electronic isn't your thing, we have Radiarc to cover the orchestral side. Get his new one below the break as well!
1.) Synthis - Back to Life
2.) Radiarc - Reflection
Totally not a transparent gif
And for everyone else, have a totally not transparent SFM Trixie gif, just because.
The recent Borderlands 2 expansion was overflowing with shoutouts to just about everything in pop culture, from Dark Souls to an entire quest dedicated to beating the crap out of Geoffry from Game of Thrones (best quest ever). The entire thing culminated in a very Rarity looking horse made out of diamonds.
If you want one, the shirt can be found over here. thanks to Isseus for the heads up.
I remember many an hour of Adventure Quest back in the high school days. That was pretty much what the entire geek side of the class was doing thanks to how quickly the assignments were completed due to years of typing. That and some helicopter game I forgot the name of.
For those of you that still play it, Adventure Quest has these armor sets going up in October to celebrate their 11th anniversary. I think you can guess who they are modeled after. Thanks to eddmario for the heads up! Twitter post here.
Hot Topic has released the next in their series of Hot Minute webisodes, this time starring Applejack. It's pretty heavily apples apples apples, but we get a few more questions thrown in there to break it up a bit. Get it below the break.
Thanks to Andrew with the first and everyone else for sending it!
And how did Applejack get her famous cowpony hat? She won it bobbing for apples at the fair of course! What else were you expecting?
This is the shortest roundup ever. What do we do with short roundups? We talk about robot ponies. Why robot ponies? Because, Sweetie Bot is more popular than Sweetie Belle. How do I know this? I honestly don't. Should I poll it? You bet. Remind me to do that next time. Otherwise, go discuss robot ponies, and have some roundup stuff below the break.
