Ditto and the quest of the Three Brothers

First – I know that this quest isn’t called ‘three brothers’ and isn’t really anything close to that, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows story either, but after doing it, I just think of it as ‘Three Brothers Quest’ so that’s just what I’m going to call it, sorry.

Our story starts with Ditto lost, as usual, and just randomly following the yellow arrow and getting into a random and unexpected boss fight, and then talking to a blind mouse, and then there’s a story about a music box, and then I’m off and fighting!

 

I have to say, for a random side quest playing on the Three Blind Mice nursery rhyme, this whole set of quests was charming and fun, and the ultimate payoff was really sweet! The fights were all good but not overwhelming, and there were no annoying  ‘kill 37 random things until they drop that one random item’ type quest components, which really annoy me.

 

Overall this was a fun little side quest with just enough excitement and a really good payoff.  I hope you liked watching me play – please like and subscribe to the videos and feel free to drop me a note if you like –

 


Ditto explores the Fantastic Voyage Bundle in Wizard101

All week, Ditto has been exploring the fun and exciting Fantastic Voyage bundle for Wizard101!   In the bundle you get a set of armor, the Abyssal Warriors’ suit, which looks great and has strong stats; you get the Eel Whip weapon, which I thought was going to be creepy because – eel – but it looks great and has some really good ‘May Cast’ spells on it.  You also get a mechanical shark mount, which looks really cool, it’s a very unique looking mount (and I thought it was appropriate for Shark Week)  and a Very adorable ‘Peppy Porpoise Pet’ – it’s so cute, just swimming along with you!

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?
