Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz have “Inspiration Manifestation” to talk about this week, which is a Spike (and Rarity) focused episode. The two of them have shown their distaste for Spike in the past, can this episode win them over? They have a bit to talk about from it, including creepy puppets, creepy clowns, and even creepy Rarity. Oh, and Spike’s behavior, if they have to go there. It’s not like people like the fax machine, right? Right?

Nemesis then decides to share a small review of “My Little Investigations,” the fan game that recently released their first episode. What did he think of the game overall? He focuses quite a bit on sound, and you’ll find out why when you listen in. He tries to keep it spoiler-free, so you needn’t worry about the story being ruined if you listen in.
