While trolling the internet I stumbled upon something that truly made me scratch my head in confusion. Some of you may be aware that there is a confoundedly large fan base for the new My Little Pony series. As it has been discussed in a past episode of the show they call themselves “Bronies”. Well a group of enterprising fans seem to have taken their love of the show a few steps further then normal. They’ve taken it upon themselves to create a full fledged fighting game. Ladies and gentlelmen I present to you MLP: Fighting is Magic..
Fanboys come in the all shapes an sizes. On the latest podcast we discussed the concept of bronies. For those who are not familiar with bronies, they are adult males who are fans of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Thirty two year old Luke Allen talked to Wired magazine about his obsession with My Little Pony.
“First we can’t believe this show is so good, then we can’t believe we’ve become fans for life, then we can’t believe we’re walking down the pink aisle at Toys R Us or asking for the girl’s toy in our Happy Meal,” Allen said in an e-mail to Wired.com. “Then we can’t believe our friends haven’t seen it yet, then we can’t believe they’re becoming bronies too.” Videos and more after the jump.
