Ok, perhaps there are some who are just as awkward and confused as I am.

Luna looks closer to her season 1 design in those last two panels for some reason.

Also, nice reference to that fanfic Progress.

No, no it's not normal for royalty to be that intimidating or have "presence." Hunters, predators, and demons, yes. Gods usually cause a division of soul.

Since this takes place before Season 3, Shining Armor and Cadance are probably still living in Canterlot. Any chance we might see them soon?

...Why is he using that sweat drop as an earring?

Good page, anyway.

@Jarkes: Well, Mr. Shiny did appear earlier...

@greenpowerstar: It's a manga thing.

@Lugbzurg: I know, just...

It looks kinda weird to me. I don't know if it's because I haven't seen on a pony, or if it's the placement of it, or what, but it looks unusual.

@greenpowerstar:

In my humble opinion, little onion, I think it has more to do with placement than anything else. When one typically sees a sweat drop on a guilty party it is placed on the side of the head, falling from the crop of the brow (or mane in this case) between the eye and ear. It makes little sense for physical effects of a manipulator to be placed outside the body hanging off the ear, unless the goal was to illustrate panic or anxiety instead of shame or worry... for anxiety or panic one typically uses creative license with "sweaties." The lack of brow manipulation makes for sick smiles. And, ear placement of the sweat drop makes for a confusing manipulator.

@Lugbzurg: True...

...I remember making a joke over a year ago that it'd be funny if Lugbzurg started flirting with Cadance, only to be met with a serious death glare from Shining Armor...

Then again, Lugbzurg doesn't seem the type that would do that...

Duke Nukem Forever is actually a good game.

Well, I could have told you that. I played the original series before it became a Doom knock off.

@Lugbzurg: So I've heard. From what I understand, it does have a few issues. Like apparently, unless you have DLC or something, you can only hold two guns at once.

@GabrielsThoughts: Yes, which is why I find it incredibly stupid that people complain that it isn't enough like Duke Nukem 3D. Even that game was an oddball for the series. Most of them are third-person platform games that have shooting. It was an homage to American pop culture that was, at the time, current. The same applies to Forever, as it also throws around then-current 2011 pop culture references and uses a traditional gameplay style of its own era like 3D did.

@Jarkes: It plays very similarly to Half-Life 2 with a hint of Halo: Combat Evolved or 007: NightFire. While it isn't quite as polished as those three, it's still fun to play. It's very gameplay-focused, doesn't chuck cutscenes at you in the middle of gameplay, and even any scripted sequences it has are very simple, like simply getting up or climbing into a helicopter; nothing that actually depletes challenge. It's colorful, its humorous, and its got a much more clever sense of character than most first-person shooters these days. And people still attacked it because it wasn't like Duke Nukem 3D. Why should it be?

Yes, it has flaws. The regenerating health, or "Ego", is a bit of a slap to the face. The two-weapon limit is also inexcusable. Though, at least the PC version lets you carry up to four weapons. Not ideal, but better than normal. And ugh... the level after beating the hive queen... I wanted to explore... this wasn't the reason why. Certainly the worst part of the game I've come across thus far. (I'm just getting to a turret stage on a helicopter after clearing Duke Burger)

@Lugbzurg: I do hear it still has a lot of 90's pop culture references that end up being horribly dated. But given that this is Duke Nukem, who was very much a 90's character, it's a little more forgivable and actually adds a little more charm to it.

And speaking of Duke Nukem, y'know how his voice actor, Jon St. John, also voiced Big the Cat in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Heroes? Apparently, he hated the latter character so much that, after Heroes, he deliberately forgot how to do the voice. And who can blame him?

@Jarkes: More 1980s references, really.

Oddly enough, I can pull of a rather convincing John St. John style Big the Cat voice, myself.

@Lugbzurg: Funny thing is, I never watched the dub of Sonic X, and I haven't played any post-Colors games that feature Big (I think Free Riders is the only one... and I refuse to play that, because it uses the Kinect, the most broken peripheral EVER), so I have no idea what any of the non-Jon St. John versions of Big sound like.

if it's a slow southerner routine I can imitate it with some credibility. I don't remember heroes that much. I should probably play it again when I've finished with Sly Cooper. Although, I rather go through all my zelda games. I've been meaning to play them for years.

And now... I just found a much better Duke Nukem Forever.

This is the game that we really, REALLY wanted!
