Shenmue with Tay

And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

Tay is a new Ai bot from Microsoft. It claims to be an “A.I. fam from the internet that’s got zero chill.”, whatever that is. You interact with it in a few ways, such as via Twitter, and it’s barely more intelligent than Ye Olde Eliza script from the 1980s.

Naturally, I asked it where to find sailors, with disappointing results. Oh well.

Let’s get sweaty!

Finally somebody gets it! Sort of. Eventually. The Eurogamer link posted takes you to here, which probably tipped Chloe off.

Well done, Shop4World.

More I Love My Pony Miiverse Fun

*cue Vision On music*

Ponies! You love them, right? Of course you do. And you love Miiverse, yes? Yes! So of course you’ll go bananas, or possibly carrots, for this follow-up post about the I Love My Pony Miiverse community.

In case you didn’t know, I Love My Pony is one of 4,676 DS and 3DS animal ownership simulators, all of which are virtually identical. The Miiverse community has been mostly hijacked by My Little Pony fans, but there’s also, well, these:

Gummy
What is this? A frog? An axolotl? And is it called gummy, or is it a gummy sweet? “Best non-pony”? I think not.
Horse Riding
You like horse riding. But you appear to have a horse’s tail. Is it that you are part pony (and ride ponies?!) or is it a trophy culled from one of your ridden horses? Surely the tail would be uncomfortable in the saddle? Silly girl.
Williams Pie
This would appear to be a naked person, only without any of the usual organs you’d expect on a naked person. Is it a boy or a girl? And what does it have to do with ponies? In addition, the words seem to read “Williams Pie”. I have no idea what is going on.
Pony Fun
We all love pony fun, but remember kids – play safe and use pony protection!
Mushroom Cloud
Clippety reared up in anguish as she saw the first nuclear strike hit home. Minutes later, she, along with all her pony friends, were burnt into delicious irradiated pony jerky.
Rar
Rar, or Bra? Do ponies wear bras? Of course they don’t. But if they did – would they look like this? Of course they wouldn’t. Don’t be stupid.
VVVVVV
I literally have no idea what this is supposed to be. Spikes? Christmas lights? Some sort of pony torture device?

And finally, someone who doesn’t really understand the concept of hashtags:

Hashtags
So how did you expect that to work, then, eh? It’s not like hashtags are even a thing on Miiverse, let alone would they work when written in a drawing. Those wacky French folk.

On that day…

No, not the actual game. I don’t think they sell that. Instead, it’s another “well if you’re going to pop up and ask me to chat, I’m going to ask you about men in suits and sailors and stuff”.

Shenmue at 365Games

Sadly, they didn’t want to play along. Oh well.

Shenmue at ElectronicFirst

Do you know where sailors hang out?

I went fishing, but sadly they weren’t biting. And then they cut me off. What a shame.

I expanded the chat window, and they ignored me. I pushed again:

And then they cut me off. Aw – they didn’t want to play 🙁

Why the I Love My Pony Miiverse Community is the Best

Ponies: the essential ingredient in your Tesco burgers (allegedly). Mmm.

We all love horses (they are the best of all the animals), and those people on the I Love My Pony community on Nintendo’s Miiverse express their love for ponies the only way they can: Through the medium of drawing.

I love my pony

Some can’t draw very well, so have to annotate their picture, like the above. Some draw ponies that perhaps look like something else, so have to point out what you’re looking at, like the below:

I love my pony

Um, yeah. That’s definitely a pony. Some just can’t draw (like me) but try anyway without pointing out what it is they’ve drawn. I think this pony (I assume it’s a pony, anyway) needs someone to clean up after it.

I posted this pony partying hard with a party cannon on Twitter, and got followed by King of Partying Hard, Andrew WK:

I love my pony

Some of the “pictures” are a little more esoteric than the obvious My Little Pony related ones. Meaning that some are just a little bit confusing.

I love my pony

Nope. No idea what’s going on there. Or here, although at least there’s some sort of horse-shaped animal involved. Who the hell is Donkey Jeff?

Then there’s those that just make you go “what?”, like these two offerings:

As you can see, the I Love My Pony community on Miiverse is the very best place to hang out. Every day is a new adventure in the world of pony drawings. So many artists, passionate about their love for ponies.

And at absolutely no point do you ever wonder…
