Lights in the Sky

Lights in the Sky is the story of Rising Star’s journey to find her cutie mark. As a farm filly, Rising Star tries hard to fulfill the responsibilities given to her by her older sister, Heartland. But an opportunity arises where she finds that her heart’s desire may rest outside the boundaries of the Star Fields family farm. Rising Star will be put to the test as she is forced to decide between adherence to her sister’s wishes or the yearning to follow her own dreams.

Visual novel this time.  Not something you see too terribly often in this fandom.  If you feel like checking it out, you can click the link above.

FiMFlamFilosophy Rambles Over Pony Fantasy VI

Something a bit more offbeat today.  FimFlamFilosophy has been doing a Let’s Play of Pony Fantasy VI, a romhack of Final Fantasy VI (or III, if you’re an American) for the Super Nintendo.  The footage itself isn’t the most interesting, but the commentary over it (seemingly done in the manner of Mentally Advanced Series Rainbow Dash) is actually pretty informative, is largely tangential a decent chunk of the time.  Check out the first episode embedded after the break, or find the playlist here.

Click for Video

For those of you who aren’t card-carrying members of the FGC (Fighting Game Community), UltraChenTV is a Twitch TV channel run by UltraDavid (who happens to be a lawyer, this’ll be important in a bit) and James Chen, in which they discuss various aspects of fighting games.  In one of the recent episodes they discuss the Fighting is Magic C&D, Mane6’s options, and copyright/trademark law in general.  Considering UltraDavid’s credentials, I found it informative, so I decided to share it.  You can find it by clicking the image above.
