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

Pirate101

New Video – Captain Ditto returns the Dragon Kings’ Egg!

After battling through all kinds of crazy stuff, Captain Ditto finally reaches the lake and the Dragon King’s temple to return his Jade Egg!  Ditto learns all about the Golden Staff and the wacky hijinks of the Monkey King – this is some great storytelling!!


Captain Ditto and Fair Christina Nightingale battle General Tsao!

One thing that Kingsisle has always done well in their games is funny pop-culture references, from Firefly to old John Wayne movies to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who.  Mooshu is no different, and of course in a world named after Chinese takeout, they would be a villain named ‘General Tsao’…  Ditto has spent months slowly making his way through Mooshu in order to face General Tsao, and the final battle was definitely NOT disappointing!

Captain Ditto and Crew infiltrate General Tsao’s fortress!!

The beginning of the big ‘General Tsao’ battle in Mooshu in Pirate101 – Captain Ditto and his crew infiltrate General Tsao’s compound searching for the piece of Marco Pollo’s map… Witness daring fights, explosions, and a furry orange monster – who could ask for more?


Captain Ditto’s Halloween Contest!!

Halloween is Ditto’s favorite time of year – Monsters LOVE Halloween, for all kinds of different reasons! Great costumes, lots of candy, spooky stories, and fun games!! I just love it, and I’m sure you do too!

For this contest, I want to learn about your favorite part of Halloween, but from your pirate’s point of view!  If you love costumes, tell me about your pirate’s costume!  Is it a ghost pirate, or a peg-leg postman?  If you love candy, what kind of candy does your pirate love, yum filled treats, pirate candy corn, chocolate dubloons?  What kind of games do they play?  Are there Pirate Halloween stories they like to tell around the campfire?  Send me an email at dittopirate@gmail.com with the subject ‘Pirate Halloween’ and tell me about your pirates’ favorite thing about Halloween! Oh, and make sure you include your Pirate name, too!  I’ll be taking entries through Halloween night (Next Saturday), and I’ll give away prizes on Sunday November 1st (winners chosen by random draw, as usual, to keep it fair).

Captain Ditto – Can’t Stop the Signal, Part 2!!

Again, some GREAT pop-culture references here, and a fun quest series overall – here is the joyful conclusion as Captain Ditto and friends reunite Captain Reynolds with his trusty crew – Wash, Zoe, and Jayne…


Gameplay Video – ‘This Whole Stream is a Trainwreck’… #Pirate101

So it’s been a little while since Ditto has streamed, and Carl my helper was still asleep, as you can probably tell by the absolute wreck of an opening here…   And what is that weird creaking sound in the sound feed?  Was that my microphone?   Gah!

However, it is OK because if there is one thing I love most about Kingsisle games, it is their excellent use of pop culture references!!   This one is no exception – we need to save Cobb from villagers who worship him for all the wrong reasons… and they sing to him too!
So Ditto has to raid some armada ships to put together a bribe for a sheriff, to let ‘The Rooster of Doom’ go, so he can take Jayne’s place… Got it?


Captain Ditto battles Inoshishi Bandits in Mooshu!! #Pirate101 #balughust day 26

Captain Ditto and his swarthy crew are back in Mooshu, where they need to battle some untrustworthy Inoshishi Bandits to recover, of all things, an incense stick…   Kind of weird

I think this was the last video recorded before I fixed the sound, so it might be a little off again… the next ones should all be awesome!
