My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made
Embroidery Commision InformationAlright, I had a giant thing typed up, but DA froze, and I lost all my typing. So this is going to be short and to the point because I don't feel like typing that all again.Embroidery Commision Information3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Very long story short, I have too many things in my queue because I don't charge enough for them. I only charge actual materials, and only when purchased. Well, I need to cut down on the number of requests and weed out those requests that are wasting my time. About 90% of the time, the requestor doesn't purchase the patch I made just for them, and that is a waste of both my time, and everyone else in queue who really wants something for a con or something. To solve for this, I am going to start charging for commissions of embroidered patches and such. As always, once I actually break even, all proceeds will be donated to the Childs Play charity.
Here are the general prices for a patch that is 100mm long (4") in the longest direction. The price may be different
A Tech Demo is NOT a game in productionAlternate title: "No, Square is not remaking Final Fantasy VII for the PS3".A Tech Demo is NOT a game in production3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If a clip is labeled "Tech Demo", it is NOT a game in production. The purpose of a tech demo is to showcase the processing power and graphical capabilities of a system. A lot of the time, real franchises are used in tech demos - Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy - but these "snippets" of games are NOT examples of actual games in production. They are "mock" games, or VERY short 'games', created for the sole purpose of making a console ACT like it is running a game. Using known franchises just helps to get your attention.
This isn't to say that a Tech Demo might not later BECOME a game, and there's usually a lot of talk that they will. But honestly, I can't even remember a time when it has. xD And I've been here a while.
Actual games in production are showcased as such, and are NOT called "tech demos". Once you know that, it's easy to tell th

When you're trying to explain your feelings for an entire season's worth of content, it can quickly get out of hand and turn into a wall of text- as befell my first two attempts.Final thoughts on Season 4...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to do my best to summarize my thoughts on Season 4 in a few specific areas. That being the case, I will not explain every factor or reason that something does or does not work for me. If you disagree with me or feel that I didn't offer enough explanation in a particular area, feel free to ask me about it in the comments, but keep in mind: This is just MY OPINION and should be taken with a grain of salt.
So how does Season 4 rate in relation to Seasons 1-3?
To answer this, we'll have to look at some of the primary components of this season. Why don't we start with-

HiatusI've decided I'm taking a hiatus from the MLP Project folks.Hiatus1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I'm getting a tad sick sore and tired of the comparisons people keep making, and have finally accepted that they will never end, and that no matter what I make or how proud I am of it it will be subjected to comparison and any pride I may have felt will be shattered. This is my negotiation because originally I was considering stopping entirely.
I'm not sure how long the hiatus will last, I just know that I have no desire in me whatsoever to do anymore pages for now, but I'm not quite willing to call it off. I need a break, and I need to get away from it lest I delete the entire thing and say 'screw it, I'm done'.
I want to thank those who support me and genuinely like my comic, and those who have been kind enough to make comparisons that feel like they actually have a thought in their head that isn't 'I hope Metal-Senpai notices me'.

Anyone else getting a little tired of hearing this all the time? I know I am.
I didn't notice a lot of brony hate until recently. It must be because of how popular MLP is getting, and how much the fanbase is growing. And this is a subject that has always irked me. What in the hell gives anyone the right to tell someone else that what they like sucks? Who actually feels that entitled, and that righteous to presume that just because they dislike something, it's automatically awful? I don't care HOW much I dislike something, I would never flame it. Especially to specifically taunt those who DO like it.
The MLP:FiM fanbase is actually one of the things I love about the fandom. I can honestly say that I've never been a part of something this monumental, passionate and awesome. But of course there are going to be people that are rude, or people t

EQG is like Elseworlds. Sure sometimes Batman is a cowboy vampire pirate, but not really.
If you really fall in love with Gay Vampire Pirate Cowboy Batman, its okay. You can write fanfic, draw fanart, cosplay, and tell yourself (and anyone who will listen) that somewhere out in Universe 683492 Apple, Batman is swinging from a bonaventure mizzen with a stetson and a Winchester rifle, drinking the blood of brooding young men with pouty lips and exceptionally smooth legs.
If you hate Vampire Cowboy Robot Mormon Batman you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman.
Mal's desireThe man sat there by the cliff, looking at the island below. He could have it all, He can have Everything he ever dreamed of, But he couldn't have her. And that was his only desire. All he ever wanted was her. Her short brown hair, her beautiful Onyx eyes, Her gorgeous smile. Just out of his reach. He dreamed of having everything, but he strived for her. He wanted everything, But he needed her. It kills him to see to see the one he loves be with him, Scott. He hates looking at her only because he can't have her. He hates seeing her, with him, always flirting and talking sweet to each-other. He has his dreams, he has his list of what he wants.

My thoughts on ShippingsA question arose on my profile as to some of my favorite shippings for the Mane 6. More specifically, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy. I thought why not just list it all so folks have a complete answer? Yet before I do, there are two things I want to make clear:My thoughts on Shippings10 months ago in Personal More Like This
None of this is "meant to be".
I've seen many fans across different fandoms insist that their favorite ship is the one true love and it's obvious the show will go down that route. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. For me, it's less a question of trying to guess the show's intent and more asking what I enjoy out of a romantic storyline. "Would this be fun to watch?" I really enjoy seeing a character challenged by a relationship and growing because of it. It's a rare treat as many romances in media are cookie-cutter and ultimately uninteresting. I am in no way saying that alternate shippings are wrong. I'm just saying what I find appealing.

Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.

It's not the whole "he stole my waifu" nonsense, but rather that as love interest go, he's is exceptionally bland. To illustrate the emptiness that is Flash's persona, let me point you towards the Save Flash Sentry Petition which seeks to have DHX make him a mane-stay of the show. Here are a few supporting quotes:
With the added love interest Twilight Sparkle will be even more relate-able than what she already is.
Just thought that Twilight deserves to be loved just like Princess Cadence.
A main male character with an important standing in the relationship of Twilight Sparkle THE PRINCESS ahem ahem would be a huge jump in the fandom, not to mention the show.
Note that amongst these people, the ones who want him to be on the show, none of them are saying that
