  1. So, who wants to thread with Octavia?

  2. So then...we're just gonna ignore the absence and get right to the review! Dusk's Dawn is an interesting title that has received it's fair share of reviews, most of which being bad. While observing and taking notes on the video, I began to realize that the fan product wasn't as bad as Snowdrop, in fact I don't know what my opinion on Dusk's Dawn is. Don't get me wrong, when it does something wrong, it's really, really bad, but not everything is bad and some of the things that it does, I have to give it credit for. The title is certainly ambitious and I praise it for being so bold as to go outside the box, but it does have it's problems... So let's just get this out of the way, the voice acting in this is terrible. There are some voices that aren't that bad, but there isn't anything too good in this. There was a Pegasus with an accent in the video who I never understood, some of the voices seem like their reading off of the script, and I swear there is a line that just uses google translate's bot as a voice. I never really liked any of the voices, and most of which were annoying. I understand that you might not be able to get people like Elliemonty, but I know that lines can be read and acted better than that, and I can say that from experience. Moving on, the animation was...well...not very good. I felt like someone had just copied and pasted the pony creator products into flash and tried to do something, and while that may work for some things, it doesn't work here. There are many times where things seem off and not right, especially when it comes to the wand (I think it was a wand). I have no idea what it really is, and that's a problem. It looks somewhat like a sonic screwdriver actually, but that doesn't make any sense. Now let's talk about what I can appreciate here. This video isn't afraid to think outside the box. Most animations I see are fairly boring and stay relatively the same. Most include one of the main characters doing something, or include something that feels really slice-of-life ish, and there's nothing wrong with that, but after a while it gets tiring. This however, made me think it was gonna be a good fight. Seeing something like Swing tavi Swing, in a full animation was gonna be good, and I like that it was a little dark, but I was disappointed that there was no actual fight scene. I also like the song in the video, I like the idea and the general beat to it. Now we can reflect on this. So what we have here is something that thinks outside of the box, has a decent song, but lacks good animation and voice acting. I personally don't hate it as much as I hate something like Snowdrop or Button's adventures. There are worse things out there, but I wouldn't tell you to show this to someone who hadn't seen anything in the fandom. There also was the problem at the end where one of the characters stumbles upon the elements of harmony, which kinda bugged me, but the series won't continute, so I'm okay with it. I know that's off topic, but I just wanted to bring that up somewhere in this review. Now then, I give Dusk's Dawn a 4/10, it needs a lot of improvement, but the idea isn't half bad and if it got a revival with some decent voice actors and better animation, I'd take another look again. I'm sorry that it took so long to get this review out guys, but I just couldn't get motivated to do a review, and I think I actually tried to quit Canterlot at somepoint, but I'm not sure. I'm still here, and you guys are kinda stuck with me for a while now, so good luck with that. Anyway, I'll see you guys at some point later, with the next review in the Hatred marathon, which may or may not be a fanfic...we'll see... This has been Neo Review, thanks for reading, take care, and have a good night.
  3. That moment when you realize the school blocks the chat room. D:

      Tangent

      They block everything man T_T

      I am glad I am out of that mess. They block everything, even websites that are actually useful.

  4. Don't call it a comeback...

  5. I have a slight idea for a roleplay that will hopefully get me back into things...

  6. So SOPA got reincarnated, and if it passes, then we will have a serious problem. So take the link and sign the petition, we have to stop; it together...again...https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-sopa-2014/q0Vkk0Zr

    1. CaptainMcDerp

      CaptainMcDerp

      Signed the %$^&* out of that petition.

    2. QuickLime

      QuickLime

      Actually this has been suggested to be bogus.

    3. CaptainMcDerp

      CaptainMcDerp

      Eh, just in case I suppose.

  7. After a long time of thinking, I'm going to leave Canterlot for a while, and I don't know when I will be back. I'll probably keep updating Neo Reviews, but I don't think I'll be roleplaying for a while now, bye guys.

  8. Meanwhile, during another of Neo's roleplays: Another person's character shows up with a knife in his chest, in the middle of a crime scene, crawling with cops, and the cops don't even care, apprently... >_______>

    1. ShadowWalking18

      ShadowWalking18

      I don't get it....

    2. PyroBlaze

      PyroBlaze

      Hmm...

      I think you need better cops.

    3. Halide

      Halide

      I like to think that the character simply shows up in a completely nonchalant manner, the knife sticking out haphazardly and entirely unnoticed by the individual carrying it.

  9. The sheer amount of confusion this episode has brought upon me...I don't even...

  10. Let's begin the marathon of hatred, 4 pieces of fan content , 4 reviews, 1 Neo...joy... I know I said we'd be doing Button mash this week, but I really wanna hurry, due to the review I have planned after this, so with that in mind, let's tear this idea a new one, what's worse, this thing is personal... Snowdrop is absolutely awful. It's about an terrible filly, with a stereotypical archtype, and is just...bad. Let's start with the easy part, the good. The animation isn't too shabby here, and the voice acting is also quite nice. If I have to say something good about this, I'll give it to these two things. Now the animation is the best part of the fan-content, and the voice acting is...mostly good. Most of the children aren't all that good, but some of the other characters are pretty good. Now then, let's talk about the bad part of this episode, everything else. Everything is just...let me try and make some sense of it. The storyline, really ties into the character of Snowdrop who has such a stereotypical archtype that isn't even played out well. Normally when a character has an archtype, it can be played out well, but Snowdrop's isn't. Snowdrop has what some of my friends call, "The Disabled" archtype, which comes from her blindness, but she's mary-sue, so she's even more ridiculous. Let's check things off. Has a disability that should keep her from doing things, but doesn't seem to do anything? Said disability causes people to look down on her? Gives something to a canon character and becomes "Like a sister" to them? Never accepts help, even though her character shows no signs of being headstrong? Somehow creates something that really doesn't need to have a backstory? This character just makes no sense. She has all these traits that she shouldn't have in her character. There was a fanfic I read once, that I won't say the name of because it was VERY nsfw. The character was called Jenna, and she was in a zelda fanfic. Jenna was a normal merchant, best friend of Princess Zelda, considered a daughter to the king of hyrule, and was married to Link. So a mary-sue. She shares many qualities with Snowdrop, and she is the reason I can look at this kind of character a bit more in depth. Two friends of mine, they go by ObsidianDragon, and Quill (Not Quillhart) read this with me, and if they ever read this, I want to seriously thank them for showing me the fic. Back on topic, the story made no sense at all, and I personally think that the reason why people like this, is because of the people behind. If you were to make this a fanfic, by someone who had just found the fandom, the story would have been tore apart and never would have gotten this popular. I absolutely HATE Snowdrop! So you know what? With all this in mind, this piece of fan content gets my reviewer rating of: 3/10, it's just horrible. Well now that that's out of the way, I have a lot more to work on. This weekend I wanna tackle something that has eluded my gaze until now, Dusk's Dawn, I'm told it's bad. Yay... Well, I have to go force myself to watch something. So Ladies and Gentlemen, have a good evening, stay safe, and take care.
  11. Warning: Spoilers My little portal is a very charming web crossover series, crossing the worlds of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and the world of Portal. (No half life jokes please.) Due to it being a series, I'll be starting by reviewing every episode in a pair of two episodes. My Little Portal is done pretty well, with good animation that seems to capture elements from both it's parent's series, and has an interesting protagonist(s) but we're not their yet. The first episode features Cranky donkey and Pinkie Pie in Equestria Laboratories, with Pinkie throwing a party for the activation of the third AI based off of Discord. Suddenly there is a power surge, yet the Discord AI remains online. At first things seem fine, until the Discord AI begins harming everyone in the room, killing Pinkie Pie, and a random scientist stallion. While also knocking Cranky out. Whooves, another scientist, manages to escape and suits up to try and turn the old AI's on. Along the way he meets Rainbow Dash, where the two split up, Rainbow Dash is killed (Or becomes mostly dead) and Whooves is able to turn the other AI's on. Discord is shut down, and Cranky is sent away to continue testing on the moon, or that's what's implied. Then we come to the real storyline in the second episode. It is revealed through a letter that Twilight will be going to the moon laboratories along with the rest of her friends that were at the old testing site. It is also revealed that Rainbow Dash is alive, and is being turned into...something, although we clearly see in the intro that she's being turned into a cyborg-like thing. Ten years later Pinkie Pie, who is now a personality core, accidentally re-activates the Discord AI who has now upgraded from Linux to Mac.Twilight is dispatched to find him and the elements of harmony, alongside Pinkie Pie. Aright let's get this out of the way, no the voice actors do not sound like the official ones, but just like I have said with Turnabout storm, I don't need perfect matches of the official voice cast to make me happy. With the exception of Cranky, I enjoy every voice in this series, my favorite being Rainbow Dash and Whooves, but I really like Celestia's too. The art style is also really good, I enjoy the cross between the two styles we were given, and it really makes me feel like the two worlds are one. If I had to make one complaint, it would be the AI bots from the first episode. They don't look as appealing to me as the ones in episode two, but it's only minor and we don't see the old AI bots for long. The storyline is really good too. It's a mash-up between the storyline of portal and the storyline of MLP's first and second episode, with a few tweaks here and there. It somewhat reminds me of Kingdom hearts, where all the worlds have their own storyline, with a hint of kingdom hearts thrown in there. In fact this whole series reminds me of kingdom hearts, they combined two things that you think wouldn't be able to co-exist in the same world together, and yet it somehow turns how amazing. And how about that soundtrack? Using the instruments that portal normally uses, with some of the mlp music just makes my ears melt in happy bliss. I can't even describe, just go look up the theme song and here it yourself, it's amazing. Now with all this information I have to say, I can't wait for the next episode. We're waiting on episode 5 right now, and I can't wait, I just know it's going to be good. Christian Cerda, I tip my hat to you good sir, for you are a genius. Now I want to say one thing, this series seems to be missing something for me. When we take a look at Turnabout Storm, it was charming, it was complex, and there was a lot of room for character growth. I don't feel this series has achieved that yet. I feel like comparing the both of those series isn't possible, but they both are crossovers including My little Pony, so I will compare them. Comparing Turnabout Storm to My Little Portal is like comparing a stale piece of bread to a piece of fresh pizza. I think something that is missing might be the humor. See, in turnabout storm, there was times for comedy, and times for seriousness, but in My little portal it's all dark all the time, and that's not something I can totally agree with. With all this in mind guys, this game gets my reviewer rating of 7.5/10, needs some work, but I know there's still some room to grow. Well, that was an interesting review. Now that that's over with I suppose I should review something else. So join me next week when we delve into the world of Button Mash, it's not gonna be pretty. So Ladies and Gentlemen, you have a wonderful evening, stay safe, and take care.
  12. I've been waiting to announce this for the longest time. It is with deepest apologies and sincerest regret that I announce that I will no longer be reviewing episodes of My little pony Friendship is magic. Now this doesn't mean that this blog is going to be thrown into the garbage can, far from it, in fact there's going to be a lot more of it around! Something that I really enjoyed, was reviewing turnabout storm, and I never felt anything like it when I reviewed the official episodes. However, to try and re-capture this moment, I will now begin reviewing fan-content. This will require a bit off tweaking with my normal way of reviewing things, but all in all, I will still be reviewing. So expect a review of some type of fan-content this friday, or next week. I'll review anything, except for fanfics, which I may do at a later date. I can't wait to get started!
