As you might guess, gamer swag is not the only amazing stuff that one can find to put under the Christmas tree this year. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is well into its third season, offering fun irreverent humor and featuring complicated characters that are relatable to pretty much everyone.  Even if you might scoff at these cartoon ponies, there is a veritable ARMY of bronies who love the show and are avid fans.  

So, not to be outdone by my gamer swag blog entry, I've scoured the many shops on Etsy (as well as We Love Fine and a very special plush maker who makes show-accurate characters) to bring you the very best for your pony loving friends (and maybe even something to add to your own wishlist).

 Without further ado, please enjoy!

As you can see, there are a myriad of ways to show your brony pride and give the gift of friendship this holiday season.  I also wanted to take a little time and thank my fellow brony friends here on GIO for sending a little gift to my family after my daughter Lyra was born:
If there is anything else I can say about how wonderful it is to be part of the Brony community, this would be a prime example- a thoughtful and caring gesture from others who I have never met in the real world, but who nonetheless kept my family in their thoughts and sent a wonderful little message to welcome our new little girl into the world!
In honor of that kindness, I am also going to be paying forward the kindness shown to me by doing a FREE pony ornament giveaway to my friends here on GIO (see details below):

There are only three rules:

1) You must provide me with a valid address so that I can send it to you.

2) One ornament per brony- I don't have a ton of them, and once they're gone, they're gone.

3) Please tell me which number you want.  If a number is not specified or I run out of that number, I will send you a random pony.

I would like you to get these before the 25th of December, so please send in all your requests to my email at no later than December 21st.



So this holiday season, how will you be "paying it forward" and showing the magic of friendship to your fellow human beings?

This month is the very last printed publication of NINTENDO POWER MAGAZINE.  Did you get the last issue?  Do you have any thoughts on the state of the gaming magazine vacuum in the consumer market today?


Next time, I'm hoping to talk about the Gameloft MLP:FiM game and how I would improve/tear it down and replace it with a better game dynamic, story and less IAP.  Please feel free to let me know if you'd like any tips on playing the game as it is now- I am currently at level 60 (they don't let you get any higher in the game) and am very good at sending out gifts and gift chests each day, so let me know if you want to add me.  I'm Oni_no_Tenshi on Gameloft.

Once agan, thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
