Making Them’s Fightin’ Herds

Youtuber Hold Back to Block made a 41 minute documentary about the story about the developers Mane6 as well as their game Them’s Fightin Herds, as well as the introduction towards them discovering My Little Pony.

I need to spend more time with Them’s Fightin Herds. Maybe I will play some and stream it on Mixer?

sadness“I don’t feel so good Mr. Stark,” Those words from a dying child looking towards his mentor for… comfort? A sliver of hope perhaps? They come to me as we approach the midterm election this coming Tuesday.

Two years ago, in 2016 when Donald Trump defied the polls and won The Presidency of The United States of America, many of us went numb with this realization that things might never be okay again. Well… I’m getting a miniature feeling of that going into Tuesday.

There is no such thing as ‘better angels,’ and The Republicans are going to win most of everything I fear. We will be a nation that 55% of the 2016 Voters just… don’t want to be in anymore… and just… feel trapped. 1969screen

Let’s face it… Canada wont take us in… Meanwhile, the caravans coming to our borders? I’m at the point where I wish we had a wall… just to protect them from us.

I hate feeling like this. I feel like this is the point where I’m supposed to say something encouraging… but, I have nothing.

I don’t want to live in this world anymore… but I know that I have to because… because. How much longer can we all #Resist? I don’t know… I don’t know.

Here’s a My Little Pony fan video from 2013 with a cover from Hocus Pocus…. I’m sorry.

Frank West as a pony, Flounder as Roshi’s pichi pichi gal

I’m headed off to work, just wanted to share Frank West from Dead Rising 1 as a My Little Pony Character, and Mermaid Flounder as a potential victim of Master Roshi? Oh, and Trunks was there to maybe?

Also, Kittyhawk will be coloring her sketch tonight of Mermaid Flounder, which is exciting because I can actually make that stream!

Fighting games and Women part 2?

Ivy-Isabella-Valentine-Soul-Calibur-fI never got the achievement for Lollipop Chainsaw for looking up Juliet’s skirt. I didn’t give Bayonetta a chance because a sexy librarian who gets more naked the stronger she is just seemed sexist to people like Anita Sarkeesian, so yeah… And yet when I was in the rated T for Teen target audience, I loved Fatal Fury’s Mai Shiranui and Soulcalibur’s Ivy. As sexy as these characters were, well… at least it’s not Dead or Alive that let’s you up the jiggle physics by saying you are very old. Maybe this was a tongue and cheek way of making fun of their player base?

Super vgI’ve tried to get my nieces to play fighting games before. I thought maybe an all girl fighter on the Super Famicom might be the way to go, Super V.G. which is a game about… waitresses fighting in a tournament or something? Hey, it’s not Pretty Fighter and there are characters who basically have the move sets of Ryu and Blanka in the game. It’s really not ecchi, okay? Also it apparently has an anime that I have never watched. My eldest teenage niece asked me the question: Is this game appropriate? Which flabbergasted me. They were more interested in Super Mario games when I let them borrow my Super Fami-clone, so I wasn’t too upset with them not trying the game out.

brawlI’ve tried a couple of different games in the past, but there is a huge problem: I am incredibly decent at fighting games, and playing someone who has difficulty throwing a fireball is just… yeah… not okay. They enjoyed Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but mainly as a platformer that we could play cooperatively thanks to the Subspace Emissary. Thanks for taking that out Nintendo.

In my quest to get my nieces to get into one of my favorite genre of all time, I brought over a relatively new game on my. Okay, I lugged my PC over, and that is quite the feet as I do not have a real laptop but a tower with two displays and… *sigh*

thems fightinSo what game did I have them play? Dragon Ball FighterZ? Heck no. Them’s Fightin’ Herds.

Expect a full review of this game sometime soon, but here is why I picked it: While I do not really care for the systems it uses, it can still teach them the fundamentals such as how to do a fireball, spacing, etc. Also… just look at these characters that Lauren Faust designed! Below is concept art of Velvet!

So… did my attempt work? Did they like this fighting game with only 6 characters that were created by the person behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? Yes. They did. Was it worth doing on my birthday? Yes it was.

ArizonaThey kept fawning over the designs, the color pallets, etc. So far, so good. They asked me to even bring it back over the next time I come over… which… wow. That’s going to suck.

Here is hoping Them’s Fightin’ Herds comes to consoles sometime soon!

Oh! Coincidentally, Kotaku had a podcast about Bayonetta as well as women in fighting games. It’s worth a listen, but maybe slightly NSFW. Okay, me mentioning Bayonetta was because I listened to their podcast right before posting this, but it was pretty good. It can be listened to here: https://kotaku.com/1823339370

MLP leaks again, apparently?

mylittleponyposterOnce again, there has been a massive MLP leak for Season 8, potential plans for ending the show with Season 9, another Friendship is Magic Movie, a 5th Generation CGI series where some of the FIM characters seem to have re-designs or might be dropped completely…  oh, and some episodes of course.

Long story short, the end is nigh, but I can’t legally share any of the leaked info, nor can I really… um… find all of the videos online? *sigh* I just got to it too late, ya know?
