Survival Island

The oldest trick in the book (Survival 4 for all this Thurs!)

Hello, fellows. Hi guys. Bonjour, monsiours. (Sorry girls, I coudn’t think of a hello rhyme that applied to you). It is me, Angry Wing, returned from the dead. (I wasn’t really dead.) As you all know, there’s been just a flurry of Poptropican activity in this past year.

First of all, in addition to Mission Atlantis 3 releasing to members this Thursday, the Creators finally confirmed, as if it were an afterthought, that nonmembers wouldn’t be left out: Survival 4 is coming out on Aug 7 for all as well. Exciting, right? AAAAAHHH. Just had to get that out, Poptropica is so busy.

So that’s Poptropica. Now read on if you want to for a valuable life lesson 😀

I must say, it’s made me rather lazy. Yep, LAZY. *shudders* You know it’s like, “Should I post today? Oh lookie, HP and Samwow and Fishy all have posted recently, I can wait.” Or maybe, “Should I post today? Wow, delving into the Creators files? I can’t possibly top that! I’ll wait.” You know? It’s a vicious cycle. (Not really that vicious). I feel terribly embarrassed, because when I signed up for this gig, one of the requirements was that I would be a faithful author. I gave up my Poptropica membership this summer, and I pondered retirement. But no! THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

And it is. Right now. What you are reading is the show going on.

If there was only one thing I could teach you, it wouldn’t be about Poptropica. It’s this:

You’ll always have an excuse. Don’t use it. Ever. Remember, excuses are useless.

Well, anyway, I’ll be back soon. So watch yo back, fools! Just kidding, just kidding.

This has been an inspirational public service announcement from the esteemed, all-powerful Angry Wing, who is also super-awesome and thinks his readers are even more awesome.

Monster Carnival Island

Monster Carnival confirmed as the next Poptropica Island!

Haha! Finally! You guys were right! It’s the dream of Poptropicans everywhere, the island we’ve all been waiting for – and it will be ready starting February 2014

After all these (five!) years, it’s finally happened. The great mystery of Monster Carnival Island will be revealing itself. Hallelujah! This is going to be VERY exciting.

Daily Pop Sneak Peeks

I Foresee Strangeness

I speak the truth, ladies and gentlemen! Strangeness lies ahead!

Disclaimer: What is below adds up to absolutely nothing

The Creators sure are going out of their way to be confusing with their Daily Pop sneak peeks.

First let’s take a look at this picture:

rubduk

What do you see above? I see two ducks in a perfect circle of water in some grass with rocks. The caption reads, “Let’s give this another try and see if we can goose some numbers.” What? Doesn’t make much sense to me.

Now the key here is the shape of the water. It’s obviously outside but can’t be a pond because it’s a perfect circle. So for now we’ll say it’s a bowl.

And there’s also the question of whether the ducks are real or rubber. Looks to me like rubber because the Creators typically exaggerate eyes in all their characters.

Last thing: the caption says “Let’s give this another try” so that leads me to believe this will be some type of mini-game.

So we’ve got a game involving rubber ducks in a bowl outside. Wow, I really dissected that thing.

Next:

rx

First thing’s first: The caption says “The Perfect Prescription.” Rx is the universal symbol for prescription medicine. This “thingy” is sitting on top of a roof. A power line stretches behind it.

So what is it? A chimney or a sign. Or something else? If it’s a sign, it’s probably for a drug store. If it’s a chimney, that’s just really weird. So is whatever this place is selling, because you see what’s popping out of it? Stars and stuff.

You know, I can’t say I have much of an explanation here. It’s kind of weird.

That’s all for today, Poptropicans. Two Sneak Peeks explained. (For the most part.) That’s what I do, so enjoy my facts. 😀 Adios!

Chattin’ it up on the PHC!

Hey, it’s Angry Wing! I’m just here to remind everyone about the fun PHB chat we’ve got right here on the site. In fact, here’s a hello from some party-goers.

popchat

Busy day.

Anyway, feel free to check it out anytime. There’s usually always someone online to hang with. If you look up, right below the header, you’ll see the tab that says Chat. (Take all the time you need to find it.) You back? Good. See you there!

Daily Pop, Mocktropica Island

Mega Fighting Bots (among other things)

Hey Poptropicans, guess who? Yeah, it’s me, Angry Wing. I know you all want to get up and give me a standing ovation, but please, fight the urge and hold it in for now. Aw, I’m just kidding with you. I’m not here for applause, I’m here to tell you stuff. Stuff other than talking about applause. ANYWAY!

All the talk is about Gamer Guy, Gamer Guy’s firing, Mocktropica, glitches, and Mega Fighting Bots. A little background: Gamer Guy was first introduced a long time ago, when his character began appearing in some Daily Pop Sneak Peeks. Remember, everyone wanted to know when Poptropicans would be getting iPhones? Gamer Guy then was a character on Zomberry Island. Most likely, you played video games in his house. Then, last Tuesday, Captain Crawfish handed over the helm of the Creator’s blog to him. (Get the pun there?)

Finally, what’s gotten him fired is his promotion of a rival website. This is where we arrive at Mega Fighting Bots. Still with me so far?

The Mega Fighting Bots website is empty except for this:

megafightingbots

Definitely not much to get from this, although the game was previously playable

I have come to one conclusion. It’s all just another promotion for Poptropica’s newest island. A fun one, more elaborate than we have seen in the past. Kudos to the Creators for reeling us in on this adventure.

One more thing: this shouldn’t really have come as too much of a surprise, as this Sneak Peek was posted weeks ago.

Just sayin’.

That’s it, Poptropicans! This has been a story recap/update from your favorite friendly neighborhood Angry Wing. 😉
