The thing is, those people they're based on are their voice actors, so it makes sense.
This was literally some graphic designer googling up a random image, spending 5 minutes in photoshop, and putting it into the game as the face of a character whose looks had been a mystery for 2 entire games.
I stopped reading there because I can easily counter that with: "95 to 99% of the people defending this sort of thing are mindless consumer drones owing to a deeply unfulfilling life at home and absolutely everywhere else ."
Here's how it really works:
1) A company puts...
Yeah that's what worries me. I'm not sure if that shit could fly in Germany though, consumer protection is usually pretty strict here. It's not like EULAs override the law.
Bleh, guess it's all speculation until something happens anyway. Just gonna wait a few months.

Everything else I don't give a fuck about but so far, nobody could give me a clear answer on that.

Just get over yourself, the animation is...
Only it's a TV show, not a chan meme.
Know what I'm sick of? People hating on this. I mean why? Seriously. It's a good show, people enjoy it, if you don't then just go somewhere else.
Granted there's a lot of threads about it and a lot of people have Pony avatars, but you could jsut, you...
I had pretty much the same opinion of the show as you do. I thought it was something on par with the care bears or the teletubbies. Something people watched and made fun of. When I heard that people thought this was actually good, I thought they were joking. Then after a while, I finally caved...
