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


Ditto is Back with a tale of woe, plus Contest Winners!!

So, a funny thing happened this past weekend.  And by ‘funny’ I mean ‘really really annoying and inconvenient’  – we had a storm, and a lightening strike, and a power surge, and our cable modem went ‘bzzzt’ and that was pretty much that.  Of course, because of our service contract thingy we had to get a new modem thingy shipped, so we had no modem thingy and no internet all week, until today when it came in.

Now, to understand how very annoying and inconvenient, not only was Ditto unable to post to his bloggy thingy or make any new videos, but Ditto and friends do not have cable – we ‘cut the cord’ as they say – so all of our TV and various entertainment, except for a couple ‘Muppet Show’ DVD box sets,  requires our internet connection.  This week has been…   long.

So that’s a long way of saying it is GREAT to be back, and Ditto can FINALLY announce the winners of Ditto’s Spooky Story contest!!  Yay!!!

Contest – Spooky Wizard101 Stories with Ditto!

It’s October, which is Ditto’s FAVORITE time of year – it’s a favorite or all monsters really!  And of course, it’s a GREAT time of year in Wizard101 – they have so many fun Halloween themed events, with Spooky Bob’s quests, great costumes, and the Halloween-themed nightmare packs including the brand-new ‘Harrowing Nightmare Pack’!  It is also a great time for Halloween contests, and Ditto has a fun one!  Ditto loves spooky stories, and wants to hear some of your story ideas, but with a Wizard101 twist.  Like, instead of ‘The Headless Horseman’ it could be ‘The Headless Gobbler’, or instead of ‘Frankenstein’ maybe ‘Dworgynstein’ – you get the idea.

So send me your Wizard101 ‘Spooky Story’ title and a brief sentence of what the story is about!  Send it to dittocontest@gmail.com with the subject ‘Spooky Story’, and please make sure you include your wizard name!  The contest runs from now until Midnight EST on Saturday, October 25th.  Winners will be announces on Sunday October 26th.

Wizard101 Contest – ‘Where’s Ditto’, housing edition…

Contest Winners have been announced! 

Ditto has another all-new contest for his Wizard101 fans, and it’s all about houses!  In fact, it’s all about houses you can build yourself!  That’s right – Ditto has codes for new Arcane Builder houses – the ‘Midday Estates‘, ‘Meadows at Dusk‘, and the ‘Night Gardens‘ houses.  In case you don’t know, these are the houses that you can build and re-configure with cool housing building blocks – I’ve had a lot of fun with these, and it’s impressive what you can build with them!  Each winner of this contest will get one code for one of these amazing houses!

So how do you win?  Well, Ditto is hiding out in three of his houses – if you can tell me which house I am in with each picture below, you will be entered to win one of the houses!  Only entries who have all three houses correct will win, and the names have to match what you see in the game too – you can’t say ‘The Beach House’, it has to be ‘Island Getaway’, as an example.

Send your entry to dittocontest@gmail.com with the subject ‘Where’s Ditto’ and list your three answers, plus your wizard name, so I can announce the winners on my website.  You have from now until Midnight EST on Sunday, July 27th to get your entries in, and the winners will be announced on Monday, July 28th.

As always, only one entry per person please, and do make sure to include your wizard name so I can announce the winners here on the site.  And to re-iterate – each winner will get a code for ONE of the above ‘Arcane Builder’ houses, randomly chosen.

New Pirate101 Contest – Petfinder in The Spiral! Have you seen my Flying Fish?

Contest time again, and this time I’ve got a fun one!  Everyone is talking about pets, pets, and more pets, and there are so many pets these days, a few are bound to get lost!  Well, I don’t want YOUR pets to get lost – that would make Ditto sad – but with so many new pets in The Spiral, YOU just found one wandering around lost, and you need to find it’s owner.  How do you do that?  You’re going to create a ‘Spiral PetFinder’ ad for this strange pet you’ve found, describing what it is, what it looks like, and at least one interesting distinguishing trait.  Like so:

FOUND:  Small orange flying rabbit with blue paws.  Seems to enjoy yum and carrots, makes a cute squeaky sound when you pet him under the chin…

The pets don’t have to be real Pirate101 pets, but they can be; it’s totally up to you!  Send your ‘Spiral Petfinder’ ad to dittopirate@gmail.com with the subject ‘Found Pet’.  The contest will run from now to Sunday, June 15th at midnight EST, and winners will be chosen after that.   For winners, I’m going to award the top five best ads, as chosen by me and Miss Narrator, and then the remaining winners will be chosen by random drawing.

So what do you win?  Why, pets of course!  One of three great new crowns pets, plus some crowns!!

And there will be a few other prizes too – a secret for now…   So get your entries in, and have fun with it – I can’t wait to see what pets you found out there!!

Ditto’s Pirate101 Witchdoctor’s Pet contest winners!

Well – better late than never, here are the winners of my Pirate101 ‘Witchdoctor’s Pet’ contest! This was a fun one – I had no idea how creative folks can be! I asked you to create a Witchdoctor’s pet, something fun and silly, and you didn’t disappoint.  Here are the winners, who got randomly chosen prizes of Witchdoctor’s Labs, pets, companions, or crowns.

Dangerous Mike: the witchdoctor pet could be a soulreaver the chick spell but in a pet form. you would be able to change the color of it to anything. the talent would be summoning a spirit from the dead to help you it could be from mailstaire to a bumble bee wearing a cow costume with high heels and t-rex arms

<Sunny Luis Smith:  A green pet Yum and that its power is “distraction”, makes every opponent from attacking to Yum to distract them and the pirate attack Meanwhile are distracted, enemies that attack to Yum do not know that the pet resists a 99% (if you use “distraction”, resist)

Dark Colin Holystone:  My pet idea is a Poltrygeist it is a ghost juju chicken(all blue as ghosts look in pirate101 and with red glowing eyes) with two powers the first is the juju spel which at adult becomes big juju and at epic becomes Great Juju and the second power is that she blows a egg from which hatches a skeletal wyvern

Stormy Blaze Silver:  The pet to a witchdoctor pirate is a haunted banana and its power is that if the pirate was defeated, will be revived by the pet (only once) and transformed into a powerful gorilla for 50% more strong.

DeadEye Daniel: The FearRat, a Ferret that got “scared to death”  so bad it has rotting fur with a solid white streak of hair going down his back and front.  Unfortunately he has a bad habit of following any armadillo pets around, falling down their holes and losing its tail.  This Ferret, known for liking shiny things breaks into houses and “infests” his deathly scare into them so when the users wear the jewelry they turn into the undead. The undead then turn in the “shinnies’” to the witchdoctor and help the FearRat get more gold!

Eccentric Elizabeth Sharp:  Skeletal Parrot – name – Toxic Bombardier. Poison pouch around his neck – With an eye patch .He rasps instead of squawking.  Power –  poison droppings. He poops – ok, drops – green slimy thingees that poison the enemy.

Patrick: My idea for a witchdoctor pet is similar to the enchanted armament in wizard101. It would be floating bones, and those bones can do anything. The bones would be different colors, and as it levels up the bones get sharper and bigger. A power would be that they can form into a sword, summon things, form a skeleton (like polymorphing), etc.

Thanks again to everyone who entered – stay tuned for more contests soon!  As always – Have Fun and Play Safe!!

Ditto’s Wizard101 Mannequin Contest Winners

New Video Bloggy Thingy plus new Wizard101 and Pirate101 contests!!

Hi everybody it is the Ditto with a fun video bloggy thingy – with contests!!  Yay!  And yes, Ditto said ‘contests’ as in multiple, so stay tuned, this will be so much fun!!


First – the twitter report! It has been a while, but Ditto now has 1873 followers – wow! Pretty close to two thousand now!  That is so amazing, thank you so much to all my fans and followers!  I’m going to do something cool at 2000 followers, so stay tuned for that!  Oh, have you noticed the changes in Twitter? Seems like a lot going on there, huh?  I think I like it so far…

Next – the games!  Ditto has been bouncing back and forth between the Wizard101 and Pirate101 test realms, because there are lots of changes coming!  Ditto does really like the Pirate101 companion changes – it makes me feel more like I have a cohesive ‘crew’, and I don’t have to worry about my level 3 mouse fencer popping up in a critical fight and getting one-shotted.  I do think it’s a cool change so far.

In Wizard101 – I’m still trying to make it through Avalon – it’s fun but I don’t think the overall story is as engaging as earlier ones.  Not sure why – it’s not a bad thing, and maybe I’m not playing it often enough to get the whole ‘big picture’ story… it is fun though, and I love the scenery and the Monty Python references…

So that leaves us with… contests!   I have two, and all details are written in the description as well, but here they are:

In Wizard101, I have a bunch of Mannequin codes to give away – each grants a male and a female mannequin that you can decorate your house with – fun!  All you need to do to enter the contest is name them – give them clever names, like ‘Archie and Betty’ or ‘Jack and Jill’ or something like that – come up with a clever pair of names and send that – plus your wizard name – to Ditto’s contest email (dittocontest@gmail.com).  The contest ends on Saturday the 26th at midnight and winners will be chosen randomly the following day.  Winners get the mannequins plus a castle bric-a-brac elixir.  Easy!

For Pirate101, I have codes for random Springtime Pets and the Witchdoctor’s Lab – these are pretty great!  For this contest, I want to combine the two things into something funny or silly – I want you to tell me about your idea for a Witchdoctor’s Pet, including one witchdoctor pet power.  For example – the pet could be the voodog, a black dog wearing a tophat, and his power is to dig up bones and reanimate them into a skeletal… whatever they were before they were bones.  Could be a Skeletal Pirate, but could also be a Skeletal bunny or a skeletal chicken.  I want these to be extra silly and fun.

For the Pirate101 contest you have an extra week (I’ve learned my lesson not to end two contests at the same time), so send your entry, with your pirate name, to Ditto’s Pirate contest email (dittopirate@gmail.com) by Saturday May 3rd, and I’ll choose the winners the next day, on Sunday the 4th.

So that’s my contests – the email addresses and details are listed here in the description, so have fun with them, and good luck!  I can’t wait to read what you come up with!

Have Fun and Play Safe!!  PLOX!

Ditto’s ‘Something’s Fishy’ contest winners!!

Here they are – the winners of Ditto’s ‘Something’s Fishy’ Contest!  I love my fans – I got so many great, fun entries, such great ideas!  Here is the list of randomly chosen winners, in no particular order – each winner got a random housing item (Fishbowl, Pagoda Gauntlet, or Winterbane Hall) plus a bric-a-brac elixir! (more…)
