A variety of stuff

Mike is rather busy at the moment. So I'll post a couple of Sweetie Bot's random findings this time. There's something awesome, some butthurt, articles, reviews... Yeah, you get it.
Also, there's a new video from the guy who put a pony into an Unreal Engine testing environment.

Find all the things after the break.

Let's start with the butthurt, shall we?
A Polish religion teacher, and by the way apparently member of the "Polish Exorcists", claims that modern cartoon culture such as My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, Pokémon and some others are devil's work and glorify black magic. The priest further explains that Satan's strategy is to destroy the children's minds, covered behind the veil of innocence.
Makes perfect sense.


Adventures in Poor Taste, a site about comic book reviews and some other stuff, made a... well... review of a comic book. More precise, a comic book series. Even more precise, the first story arc of the official MLP comic. The writer is not a brony, though he enjoys the show. So I guess you can expect some rather objective critique.
His final rating: 8.5 / 10
Not bad. Not bad at all.

The Return of Queen Chrysalis (MLP: FiM #1-4)

The Daily Dot, some sort of online newspaper site, made an article about the disastrous LasPegasus Unicon, summing up the things that were reported over the last two weeks. It's not entirely negative.

Botched "My Little Pony" convention rocks brony fandom

Look what The Hub did. They drowned a Rainbow Dash blind bag figurine in a fish tank.
However, as the way of the brony is, people started rumoring. Is it a hint at Season 4? Will there be sea ponies in the actual show?

=Raynaron made some more progress with his UDK pony. This time showing some basic AI he wrote to make a pony follow the player around. Nice work. This gets more promising every time.
In case you missed it, here's his first demo video as well.

Let's finish this with something fun. Ever tried to enter the Konami Code on EQLA's site?
Go on and try it.
