Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

Ditto’s Current Games – 11/5/2010

Hello Everybody… Well it is time again for another exciting article about what Ditto is playing!
So this week all my focus has been on an AMAZING new game that has literally consumed every free moment of my time – it’s unbelievable! It’s got action, it’s got great characters, but it’s definitely a bit of a grind… It’s called:

NaNoWriMo
That’s right, it’s the all-new MMO that seems to be sweeping the nation, possibly the globe. It’s got it’s own hashtag on Twitter, multiple forums and social networks dedicated to it, and even non-gaming sites are talking about it – it’s like some kind of crazy phenomena!

The gameplay here is pretty much all-consuming, with a focus on daily – that’s right DAILY – leveling goals that to some people (um, me anyway) find nearly impossible, but that seems to be part of the fun! I’m a little behind the curve right now, I’ll admit, because I really had trouble with my first big boss fight, ‘The Opening Chapter’ – that was a TOUGH fight, but I ended up staying up pretty late and finally finishing it off. Right now I’m grinding through some lower level narrative areas, but I think I’ve got another boss fight coming up soon so I need to make sure I get caught up soon.

Oh, and graphics – the graphics for this game might not be cutting edge, but they’re really crisp and it seems to run smoothly even on older computers – my only complaint is that they could have used a bit more color, I think…

My new MMO obsession - NaNoWriMo

I’m going to try and get a bit more Wizard101 in really soon, but for now I’m just focused on leveling up my NaNoWriMo character – after all, I’ve only got until November 30th to hit max level!!!

PLOX!
