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

Daring Adventures of Ditto

The life and times of a Crimsonzilla….

I’ve got more fun footage of Madame Jasmine playing the dance game in the Pet Pavilion. she really loves it so we have a lot of fun playing it together! We’re getting better too, and she loves getting her snacks, she makes the most fun little moves when I feed her. I love a happy Crimsonzilla!!

And speaking of happy and fun, how awesome was Ravenwood Radio last night? Leesha really scored in her interview with Kingsisle and got me way more excited about Celestia!! I mean seriously – some of those new creatures were awesome, and a squid mount? Seriously!! I know they didn’t come out and SAY we could get a squid mount, but those pictures really made things look amazingly cool!! Very excited about it now, definitely. I’m very curious what kinds of new pets we’ll see, too, and I’ve got to keep playing more so I can get my level up high enough to get in there and have some fun adventures when it opens!!

And speaking of adventures – Hope everyone is enjoying the new narrator! My new narrator is definitely getting pretty creepy lately isn’t she? Sending me and Madame Jasmine deep into spooky woods to collect crazy biting plants and now I’ve got to go hunt some scary forest demons and collect their wings? I can’t imagine what she has in store for me next but I’m sure it will be both daring and adventurous… thanks for everyone who enjoys the show and sends me notes and stuff, it makes me happy that people are liking my Daring Adventures…

The Daring Adventures of Ditto – Episode 4

Here it is, the latest episode of my daring adventures as they originally appeared on Episode 18 of Ravenwood Radio! This week I have a new narrator and begin to explore the dark depths of Grizzleheim to, um… pick berries, apparently. Here is my awesome adventure, I hope you enjoy it…

The Daring Adventures of Ditto, Episode 4!

Let me know what you think about the new narrator, too!

Return to Grizzleheim, Narrator Troubles…

So Ditto has returned to the lush green forests of Grizzleheim – somewhat against my will if you have heard my latest daring adventures… I do love Grizzleheim, though, and the quests this time around are far more impressive and fun than what I experienced during my last trip. The woods of Grizzleheim are frought with danger – which is just fine for me, but Madame Jasmine gets a little nervous. Some ferocious fire dinosaur she turned out to be.

There are a lot more quests and adventures than I expected, too – I guess I hadn’t really read up on Grizzleheim much, I thought it was more of a ‘fun little side quest’ area, but it’s as big and full and detailed as Krokotopia, including it’s own Prospector Pete quest line. I’m really getting into it and it might be a little while before I head back to Krok, not sure. Grizzleheim is a nice change of pace and scenery, but I’m one of those somewhat obsessive-compulsive Fabricated Americans who likes to ‘finish’ stuff, so it’s bugging me a bit to see the unfinished Krokosphynx quests in my quest log….

Of course thanks so much to Leesha and the Ravenwood Radio gang for including yet more of my Daring Adventures… In case you missed it, I finally fired my crazy annoying narrator and hired a new narrator from a bargain narrators site at the last minute. I’m not sure she’s working out just yet, but I’m curious what everyone else thought. Steven and Leesha seemed to enjoy the segment, in any case, and though picking berries isn’t exactly what I’d consider a ‘daring adventure’, I’m sure it will pick up next episode though, right? She certainly seems nice in any case… and far less crazy.

Madame Jasmine is adult and nearly ‘ancient’ now and we’re having a ton of fun at the Pet Pavilion, but after last night’s Ravenwood Radio episode I’m also thinking I want to do a little pet farming, because there seems to be some awesome pets out there. It this something a level 21 pyromancer can do readily, or is the really good pet famring saved for higher level players and areas? I’m hearing a lot of people farming Rattlebones – that’s a lower level instance, right? Maybe I’ll try that a few times. I think I’ll head over to the PetNome project and some of the other great pet sites and get some more info…

Until next time – see you in the spiral!!
