How Card F41 Got Me Into Another Card Craze (And Why I Got Out In The First Place)

It might not be obvious to some of our readers out there, but a few of us on the staff are Bronies (male adult fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic). I’m especially hyped to finally see Season 3 starting up on November 10th. There’s an unfinished, unpublished article right now explaining this little cartoon renaissance I went through last year that started with my watching of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and then spread into shows like Adventure Time, Gumball, Regular Show, Transformers Prime, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, and The Looney Toons show. When it came to the merch of My Little Pony, from the beginning I said I wouldn’t buy the toys. Yeaaah… But make no mistake, I loathe the brushables and much prefer the molded hair ponies. And I’m still not interested in buying those small blindbag ponies (even though I’m constantly tempted when they actually bother making a new mold instead of Mortal Kombat-ing the whole thing).

But one thing I wanted to avoid was the trading cards. My personal experience with trading cards is… somewhat turbulent early on and ended with a silent phase out at the conclusion of my highschool years.

My Little Pony takes over Skyrim, beware of Fluttershy!

Hide your children, the ponies are coming! A recent mod for Skyrim changes all the dragons in the game into ponies from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. To be more specific, the dragons have now become a legion of Fluttershy that bring destruction to any and all who cross their path.

I have to admit, while I’m not a pc gamer, this is one of the main attractions of pc gaming in my book. I really like the notion of random user-generated mods and content that can be creative, fun, and add more replayability to titles. f you’d like the mod for yourself, you can find it here. But you must excuse me for now, I have to go back to watching Fluttershy burn down some towns.
