Discussion

Many episodes ago, Nemesis reviewed the Gameloft My Little Pony game. He was not a big fan of it, for many reasons. Since then, it has received many updates. He figured it would be a good time to take another look at. This time, with Alca7raz joining in.

Those updates have made many changes and added several new things. But have they made the game better? Well, yes and no. Some things are better, but some things are unchanged or arguably worse. Any which way, they want a new game.
