The Elder Scrolls VI: Equestria.

If you want the boring old "real" Elder Scrolls trailer, it's here. My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic was covered previously.

Your party should always contain a good mix of offensive and defensive cutie marks.

Wow, that my little pony show looks kinda badass maybe?

My daughter frequently demands it on my phone. It's suprisingly non-sickening, and may edge into good.

If we're gonna throw down on Equestria, I can't recommend highly enough Oscar Moralde's guest turn over at Overthinking It, Solidarity is Illusion: The Political Economy of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

When did the magic jewels become part of an accessory for MLPs? The ones I had as a kid had the jewel embedded into their goddamn chests. Like a boss.

Holy shit, how have I never run across that site before, cortex? I fucking love beanplating pop culture!

Unicorns shooting laser rainbows from their horns, obliteration other unicorns? That's badass.

The style of that My Little Pony show looks a bit too much like Panty and Stocking, and that kind of disturbs me. ;)

Solidarity is Illusion: The Political Economy of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

This is awesome, and if it wasn't an FPP it should be.

I would play this.

This isn't about Esquerita after all.

Those Earth Ponies just aren't as friendly as Unicorns and Pegasi, but we love them anyway because we are friendlier.

Cortex, that was the most fun thing I've read in ages. Favorited!

Please tell me they are planning on releasing TES V for Xbox 360 ... Please?

TES V: Skyrim? Sure. Why wouldn't it be? Oblivion was on 360.

TES VI: Equestria though, has too much concentrated awesomeness to be contained in any console or even PC. It can only be played in the limitless potential of your mind.

This is great! The article Cortex posted is even better!

I'm mostly just concerned about how many episodes of this series, the youtube video creator and the author of the article have been subjected to. I imagine it comes with the territory of kids.

It's suprisingly non-sickening, and may edge into good.

Defiitely good, IMHO. There have been a number of points that have left me gasping, helpless with laughter, while my daughter looks on with confusion. "Buzzards that really buzz" gets me every damned time.

The episode that equated cutie marks with puberty* finally convinced me that there could depth and subtlety to it.

*I may have been beanplating a little.

No, it's generally accepted that that episode equated cutie marks with puberty.

Um, squee! I admit, I giggled like a girl at this.

From Cortex's link:

[Pinkie Pie] devises a technical solution to Ponyville’s infestation problems in a scenario where magic has failed...

I have to give the article props for probably the most deadpan description of this imaginable.
