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!!
Hey, whatever happened to that Ditto guy??
So once again Ditto has been offline longer than intended – full disclosure, I have bronchitis, so doing any recording (or anything more than, say, coughing a lot) has been problematic. Sorry about that – after everything else and my big lack of updates in 2016 in general (that was just the worst year, wasn’t it??) I really did make a promise to myself to give my fans at least a few videos a week, and I’ve had to backtrack on that a bit – I am sorry about that, but with the bronchitis I’ve had to rest a lot more. I’m sure you all understand….
I have still been playing Wizard101 a bunch and I’m still having a ton of fun, I really am!! I’m playing through Khrysalis (still – I know…) and I’m still getting back into the swing of things as far as the streaming goes, but I’m on the mend and will definitely be focusing on lots more streaming coming soon. I think I’m really going to focus on Wizard101 (and probably more Pirate101, since I do love the story there) but my experiments with other game streams did not go as well as I had hoped – I’m the Wizard101 monster, so I’m thinking I should focus on what I do best, right?? That makes sense, right?
Finally – my last video, which I think has some audio issues and a complete lack of focus because, as I said, bronchitis and such… I don’t know if I ever posted it anywhere so here it is… Not much there, but hey, it’s still fun, right?
So what else do people want to see? How can Ditto revitalize his channel once he comes back from all this? Thoughts? Ideas? Clever limericks?
Ditto versus Death Month! Is the bloggy thingy really needed?
Ditto is once again adventuring in the spiral, still working his way through Khrysalis (yes, two worlds behind right now… working on it) – This is an intense one with a big boss fight, against this crazy death moth boss monster…
I’m curious – is the Bloggy Thingy still needed? Just about all my content is YouTube and Twitch and Twitter, so people don’t really need to go through the blog to get my new stuff (and in fact the newest stuff is on Twitch and YouTube well before I post it here….) – I don’t get much in the way of comments or fan interaction here, so I’m wondering if there’s anything other than contests that people come here for? Leave a comment if there’s anything you come to the bloggy thingy for, and if there’s more that you’d like to see here? Non-video non-gameplay posts, anything like that??
Ditto was Definitely Abducted by Aliens….
So Alien Abduction is the story I’m sticking to… Totally true, that’s what happened, the end….
Here is a new gameplay video, with Ditto delving deep into Khrysalis, fighting monsters to get stinky stuff to get through spiderwebs… And then it got really crazy!! Thankfully I met up with a great pick up group who helped me in the intense battle for the Moon Gem… It was a lot of fun – I’m so glad to get back from my alien encounter so I can play again! The audio does get messed up in there a bit – I have some technical issues, but it’s not too bad…
I’ll be back on and streaming more, now that the aliens let me go, but I’m not sure what to do about The Daring Adventures of Ditto? I’ve been out of the game so long, I’m not even sure where to start but hey, if people are still interested I can probably get Miss Narrator out of cold storage and start putting together some all new daring adventures… Ditto’s Daring Adventures in the grocery store, daring adventures at the DMV, daring adventures eating pizza… could be fun, right?
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 where has Ditto been for so long?
I wasn’t sure if I would post all this, but I decided it had been long enough since I had posted anything that all my friends and fans deserved to know what really happened. I wasn’t going to go into real details, because I like to keep my blog very light and happy and friendly, but after thinking it over and after being offline so long, I decided I should just let people know what was up…
Back in the early summer Ditto started to not feel so good, and then started feeling worse, until I finally went to see my very nice doctor, and he checked a bunch of things, and then sent me to one of his other doctor friends, who checked a bunch of other things. They took x-rays and then put Ditto in a big machine, and did some more tests. It was really interesting, but a little scary too, I will admit, and I still wasn’t feeling very good.
Well, after all the tests, the doctors decided Ditto needed an operation, and that was pretty scary too, I have to admit. That finally happened about two weeks ago, and Ditto has been recovering, and I am happy to say I am feeling much better and I’m planning on getting back to streaming and posting videos very soon… This week, if everything goes as planned.
I wanted to thank everyone who has emailed me and has been checking up on me while I’ve been offline, it really means a lot to me, and I’m so lucky to have so many great friends and fans out there!!
Keep playing safe, and I’ll see you in the spiral!!

Ditto Returns to Wizard101 and gets into a Boss Fight!
After an extended absence, Ditto returns to the fun of Wizard101 and, of course, gets right into a big scary boss fight. It’s a big fight and Ditto pulls in some help right away – I’m rusty! It’s a fun return, and thanks to everyone who joined me live!!
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!!!
Captain Ditto and Crew head to Marleybone!!!
Captain Ditto and crew are on an EPIC Marleybone journey – massive boss fights, thrilling adventure, and finally… Marelybone!!!! — In these videos Ditto teams up with the AMAZING Pirate Husky Amy – it’s just a random pick up group for a rather lengthy dungeon at the end of Mooshu, but she is so good; playing with her is like watching an artist at work!!! So good!!!
These are some fun videos, enjoy!!!
Captain Ditto and ‘Quest Inception’… pirate101
On the way to Marleybone, Captain Ditto and crew encounter ‘Quest Inception’ – a quest within a quest within a quest, and so on….
Quest 1 – Secure the yellow windstone to get to Marleybone
Quest 2 – Infiltrate Fort Basset to get the windstone
Quest 3 – Secure the help of famous thief to get into fort basset to secure windstone
Quest 4 – Secure a church wedding for famous thief so he’ll help you into fort
Quest 5 – Rid church of ghosts to get priest to bless thief’s wedding so thief will help you break into fort to get windstone.
Quest 6 – Prove the innocence of wrongly accused ghost so his spirit can rest and he stops haunting the church, so the priest will bless the wedding of the thief, so the thief will help you break into the fort, so you can steal the windstone and get to Marleybone…
Did you get all that? I assure you, it was exhausting.
Ditto and Friends in Khrysalis!
Back in Wizard101, Ditto throws a lever and enters another part of the dreaded Khrysalis hive! Ditto’s clever disguise is still working, and he is actually asked to do things like put out fires and collect pollen – so exciting!
Finally, Ditto turns the tables on his enemies and helps one of his Burrower allies escape in an amazing boss fight! He has help from some other players and gets to see the most amazing Cthulhu-level death spell… awesome stuff!
Captain Ditto summons a Giant Turtle!!!
Captain Ditto and crew have traveled throughout Mooshu to collect the fabled Turtle Balls! With all the mystical objects collected, Ditto travels to a sacred shrine where he summons Maruzame, the Giant Sky Turtle!! It’s a giant sky turtle! It is so awesome!!! Who doesn’t love a giant flying sky turtle???
So what more do you want to see in Ditto’s videos? More games, longer videos, shorter videos, more of Ditto’s friends? Ditto is having so much fun streaming, he wants his fans to have fun too!!
Ditto questing in the depths of Krysalis
Ditto is back in Wizard101 and is deep in the depths of the very spooky Khrysalis! There are giant bug monsters, stolen plans, spies, mice – all kinds of excitement!! This is a spooky fun world and Ditto can’t wait to see what happens next!!
Captain Ditto is fixing Moodha statues!
Ditto loves Mooshu – both in Wizard101 and Pirate101 (because they are the same place, of course) – the music, the peaceful landscape, the constant smell of fried rice… OK maybe that last one is just in Ditto’s imagination… So this time, Captain Ditto and his crew are still exploring in Mooshu and have to fix some sacred Moodha statues to help save a cursed temple and stuff… Oh, and there’s some epic fighting as well…
New Video – Ditto playing more Turbo Dismount!!
Ditto has been experimenting more with his new streaming software and playing more Turbo Dismount – this game is crazy and silly and fun, and I’m still not sure the ‘point’ of the game, other than getting the highest score by doing as much damage to your crash-test dummy avatar as possible using different vehicles, obstacles, etc… It’s just fun, there’s not much more I can say about it, and I do love playing it! It’s a great game to jump on when I just need some interesting physics puzzles and mayhem and a good laugh. I hope everyone likes it!
New Video – Ditto Defeats Tech Glitch Boss!!
Ditto is very happy – today started with a nearly crushing defeat, but then out of the jaws of major technical issues, Ditto pulled a stunning victory! (more…)
Ditto just wandering around in Wizard101
I’ve had a few fun videos of my in Wizard101 lately that I’ve posted to my YouTube channel, but haven’t done any blog posts lately, so here’s a few videos together.
I’m still have some connectivity issues I’m working through, so the videos can start and stop somewhat randomly.
Ditto plays Crash Test Dummy in ‘Turbo Override’
Yes, the ridiculously fun and exciting ‘Turbo Dismount’, where Ditto has to do the most damage to his crash test dummy, in the most amusing ways… This game is just hilarious, Ditto was laughing so much as I crashed, and the slow-motion replay just makes it even more fun!
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!!
Ditto working on Minecraft Ravenwood – Roads and Bridges!
Ditto is still hard at work on ‘Minecraft Ravenwood’, trying to recreate parts of Wizard City in Minecraft. It’s hard work, but it is lots of fun seeing things start to take shape! I’ve been putting in that road that goes around the lake, and I’ve done a lot of work to Bartleby (though the Spiral Chamber needs to be LOTS bigger!) and I build a bridge too! It’s still pretty scary though with all those googlies about – Ditto can handle it though!
So what more do you like in your Minecraft videos? Is Ditto doing a good job, is it lots of fun to watch?
Ditto creating Minecraft Ravenwood – Things Get Going
Ditto has been working hard on his Minecraft version of Wizard City and Ravenwood… I’m not a Minecraft ‘expert’ by any means, but I think it’s a lot of fun to create things, and I figured since I’m a long time Wizard101 blogger I figured it might be fun to try and re-create some of the sights of Wizard City, starting with the Headmaster’s office…
