Secret of the Magic Crystals Catch-All

At first I was like, this is the dumbest video on the face of the planet playing along with the one of the worst songs in recent memory. But you were right Quintin, I stuck around and shortly after 2:18 it was all worth it! Pretty funny.

Hollywood has changed you, Rob.

Of course! Have I ever steered you wrong?

Hm, wait, on second thought don't answer that.

The thread just gets better and better. Also, I finally got my second pony yesterday. I'm on my way!

3 magic crystals down, 2 to go.

My bet is a Limbo of the Lost-style ending but with similar-looking unicorns as opposed to those similar-looking whatever they were...

I read this thread on Friday, but I was recovering from surgery and doped up on morphine, so I figured it had to be a trauma and drug-induced hallucination. Realizing that it's real is simultaneously one of the best and most surreal aspects of my weekend.

Also, there will be a SotMC reference in my second book. I made the change a few minutes ago.

Finally fired this up last night and put a couple of hours in. Man, no matter how many people warn you the grind is a surprise. Getting to a full set of level 5 horses must take weeks.

I thought you all might want to take a break from SotMC and try another ponycorn game

EDIT: I've found it both hilarious and effective to hold J and L and then mash H and K either alternating or simultaneous.

Showed this game to my 4 year old daughter. Not a big hit because there was not much to do for her age. The polishing of the ponies were the most fun thing to her, as well as the training courses, but she quickly grew frustrated because the courses were so short. The races were boring, the quests boring and the alchemy tables way too confusing for her.

After about 20 minutes she demanded Botanicula instead. I guess it's up to me to breed the most magical of ponies.

The children are doomed to inherit the sins of their parents (or something like that).

In the event this was missed by this august panel of gamers and arbiters of taste: we're collecting funds to have our very own Julian "Rabbit" Murdoch write a grown-up treatise on the splendour that is the sparklepony game. Details here.

If you wanna chip in - send me ducats via paypal to court -AT- cdimon -DOT- com. It will count towards your GWJ fundraising pledge (provided you tell me your username).

Get to it!

So apparently the developer condones the Steam punking other people with SOTMC and wants to encourage it even more. So they came up with their own kind of "Kickstarter campaign".

Ha!

Did you miss Rabbit's article?

I must raise this thread up to inform you of a Sparklepony book... Well, I doubt it has the secret of the Magic Crystals contained within its pages as that died with grandfather long ago, but it may have other secrets. It was written by Chris Kluwe, NFL Punter, Gamer, Warcraft fanboy, and gay marriage proponent -- yeah, that guy.

Also, please trade me your sparklepony cards so I may get a sparklypony badge.

The price has changed twice in under a week that it's been out:
Release 11/26 -> 4.99
Update 11/28 -> .99
Update 11/30 -> 24.99

Some people will pay good money for Aenus that fits in your pocket.

There was a decent upgrade today. http://steamcommunity.com/games/4510...

Three of the ten bullet points are:

+ game now runs in background (many of you asked for this)
+ Enhanced lighting and visual improvements throughout the game
+ Enhanced intro sequence with new music

The game actually makes a little more sense with the new intro. The Nightmare horse looks much more sinister now, too. It did destroy my old saves, again.

So there's multiplayer DLC coming out next month. What have we done to deserve this?

We need a league.

Insanity.

Three tracks...sorta cute.

Oh if only it came with some tools to make our own, sick and twisted tracks...you know we'd be seeing a ton of us from GWJ.
