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

Fabricated American

A Sad Day for Ditto…

As many friends and fans know, since my triumphant return from the all you can eat buffet I have put out a few new videos, but then started having technical issues…  small at first, like the audio being weird, then I suddenly had a corrupt OS and needed a re-install, then finally I started getting random restarts and other bad things. 

I got my trusty laptop looked at, and the news was dire; motherboard issue, not repairable, need a new motherboard (and let’s face it, I’m not under warrantee, so this means new laptop) 

So that’s it – this isn’t ‘goodbye’, I hope, but making gaming video content requires a stable laptop that can run games and do recordings, etc…, and it will be a while before I can swing that, so for now I won’t be posting any new gaming videos.   I might figure out some content to create with my phone, like the video here, but they likely won’t be gameplay vids…  sorry about that.  


To all my loyal friends and fans, I thank you for all your love and support over the years, you make this furry orange monster so happy!!  I’ll still be on twitter and stuff, I won’t disappear completely, and hope to see you in the spiral again some day soon!! 


‘Twas the Night Before Christmas… Ditto Style 

Hey there! Yes I know I’ve been missing in action for a bit, but I did not want to miss my yearly tradition of reading my favorite holiday poem!!


New Gameplay – More Asheron’s Call fun!

Ditto continues his introduction to the still fun Asheron’s Call – in this video we trek through a very creepy spooky dungeon full of murderous giant insects!  The was very dark and the sounds – ew, those sounds when the weird bug doors opened and closed, I won’t soon forget those!


So Ditto got a new mattress… Oops…

So Ditto got a brand new mattress, and it’s really comfortable and soft and warm and squishy…   And so apparently Ditto overslept… a bit….  by about eight weeks, according to Carl the camera-bear.  So ‘oops’ – I guess I haven’t been around for a bit.  I mean, that happens to everyone, right – like you oversleep and are late for work or miss a whole semester of school?  It happens.  I wonder if I can pull off the ‘Furry monsters hibernate randomly’ excuse?  Probably not.
Anyway, Ditto is awake now, so you can expect more videos and fun stuff soon, I promise!!!


The Ducky Did It….

So Ditto hasn’t been around for a little while – or a long while, depending on your concept of time.   There hasn’t been anything specific keeping me away, just a confluence of things that have been keeping me away from the computer and away from gaming in general.  I was feeling pretty bad about it, too, and thank you for the emails and DMs asking if I was OK – yes, I’m totally fine, it’s just that sometimes real life gets in the way of the virtual, even for a furry monster.   Then, for April Fools’ day, I say a post in my feed and had to immediately click it and then immediately log back into my beloved Wizard101 because, well…

DUCKY!!!!!!    They made a cute adorable bouncy RUBBER DUCKY MOUNT!!!   AAAHHHHH!!!!! (more…)


Happy Holidays Everyone! Twas the Night Before Christmas by Ditto!

This is becoming a bit of a yearly tradition – here is Ditto reciting the whole poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’!!  Ditto wants to thank all his friends and fans throughout the year, it is so wonderful to have you all supporting Ditto and his friends!

 


Ditto likes TV – some of my favorite shows #blaughust Day 27

So Ditto was wondering what to post about next, and he was watching some TV, so I decided to talk about what I like to watch on TV…

Well of course I’m going to start with Fraggle Rock – what Fabricated American did not love this show!!  Red, Wembly, Gobo, those cute little Doozers…  I still love this show, you can watch it now on Hulu or other on demand services, and there is talk of it being rebooted soon too!!

Next we’ll go a bit more modern with ‘The Flash’ – Ditto is definitely a fan of super heroes, and the first season of The Flash was just what Ditto loves – fun, lighthearted, and action-packed! Barry Allen is a great hero because he’s not perfect – he makes mistakes and he learns from them, and he relies on his friends.  It is definitely one of Ditto’s favorite shows.

Finally, let’s talk about cartoons…  I like a lot of those but Star Wars Rebels is a new favorite – what a great addition to the Star Wars universe!  Ezra, Kanan, and Sabine are great, but I love Zeb – I always root for the big furry guy!  I also love Ezras’ blaster / lightsaber – that’s a great design, very smart.  Again, it’s a fun, action-packed show with great characters and the return of one of my all-time favorites (no spoilers though…)  and season 2 should be starting soon!

So what so you think – good stuff?  What are some of your favorite shows – anything Ditto should check out?
