Finding Dory Party Coming in July!

Hey penguins! Sorry I haven’t been blogging, there isn’t much to cover about CP when you don’t have a membership :/

Anyways, here’s a post from Megg from the official blog:

Great news, penguins!

The next Club Penguin party is going to be–

Um, I can’t remember.

Sorry, this has never happened before. I’m sure it’s a cool party whatever it is.

Oh wait!

it’s something about a clam! No, no. An oyster! A mollusk? Something…?

OH YEAH! It’s the Finding Dory party! Dory, and a few of her friends will be visiting the island July 6 – August 17. (Note to self: learn to speak whale)

I’d love to hear in the comments what you think about–

Um…

A little help here?

-Club Penguin Team

I’m so happy to see this coming to Club Penguin! It’s rather fitting for a game with the ocean and I’d love to see CP’s take on this!

Here’s a cute clip someone made years ago:

Deluxe Gingerbread Igloo Bug?

Heya penguins! So when you logged in on the 25th (or any day after really) the Merry Walrus pops up and prompts you to collect the gingerbread igloo from the advent calendar. Which I forgot to take a screenshot of.

Anyways, as a non-member, I was happy to get a free igloo only to find that…holidayigloobug

I can’t use it. In holiday parties past, the Sweet Swirl Igloo was given away for everyone even though it was basically a pink version of a previous igloo. I don’t understand why this would be available for everyone but can only be used by members other than another method to get you to buy a membership…

Rockhopper is Here!

Hello penguins! I’m not sure if Rockhopper was here earlier but he is now.

Also, the pin is on the Lighthouse.

rockhopper1

If you go on his ship, it’s decorated for the holidays as usual around this time.rockhopper2

If you go up to the crow’s nest, you can set off the cannon by putting your mouse over it.rockhopper3

Rockhopper brought some cool green holiday stuff and the old bear suit. The candy cane hook is my favorite!rockhopper4

If you go into his lounge (get the key in Rockhopper’s journal in the book room on the last page), the holiday version of Treasure Hunt is available. Once you’re done playing, you can donate your winnings to Coins For Change!rockhopper5

Also, is Area 501 permanent? I don’t like it :/

rockhopper6

What are your thoughts on the Holiday Party this year? I like that it’s a mashup of holiday parties past… it’s not the same without the Stage though 😦

Club Penguin Halloween Panic! Special 2015

Wow that title felt weird to write. Panic! At the Dance Club amirite

Happy Halloween penguins! This Halloween, Club Penguin has released a Halloween special called “Club Penguin Halloween Panic!”. The 30 minute stop-motion animation follows the plot of a penguin named Blizzard, who prefers tricking over treating. After ruining his friend’s Halloween igloo, he befriends another prankster- but he’s a ghost! They accidentally release a swarm of spooky ghosts on the island :0 I won’t spoil the rest, but it’s pretty cool.

Watch it THIS WEEKEND ONLY on the blog here!

Fun fact- does the voice of Gary sound familiar to you Disney fans? It’s Wallace Shawn, aka Rex from Toy Story!

Finally, the oldest party is the 2005 Holiday Party. I miss the old ice rink.

anniversary43

These parties brought back a LOT memories from when I was younger. Thank you CP for throwing a wonderful party full of throwbacks. Congrats on 10 years!

Star Wars Rebels Walkthrough

Welcome back penguins! Today I will walk you through by far CP’s worst party I have seen. It’s so sad, I almost cried. Literally, the party is so dumbed down, it’s not even entertaining. It’s so bad I don’t even want to post today’s walkthrough. I’m just making this post to rant, really. At least the loading screen is nice.Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.01 PM

When you log on, Kanan will pop up and tell you that his squad is going to stop “the Empire”. No idea what he’s talking about. And Kanan is not Kanaya, let me tell you. Yeah, I’ve been into Homestuck recently.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.11 PM

He tells us we have to do a task for each person.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.15 PM

CP sadly went all out for this party. They didn’t have to. No really, they didn’t have to. I want to see this kind of effort put into original parties, like Merry Walrus.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.26.42 PM

And the pun in the town is so painfully bad.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.31 PM

To get to the quests, click on the Rebels icon. Click on “view task” (obviously).

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.42 PM

The first task is to help Sabine paint over the Imperial posters. Meh.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.25.50 PM

Throw a snowball (YAY ANOTHER PARTY WITH THE PATTERN OF THROWING SNOWBALLS TO GET STUFF *LOUD SARCASM*) to cover a poster.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.26.03 PM

When you finish, you can get a bunch of future-y sci-fi gear.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.27.26 PM

Next, click on the guy who looks like he walked out of Attack on Titan. And those eyes. Herpa derpa.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.27.40 PM

Okay, when I was doing the quest, I noticed Attack on Titan guy was calling the evil people bucketheads. It’s one thing to be mean to evil people. It’s another thing to call them bucketheads.

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.28.49 PM

When you finish that task, you can fight can dress up like Attack on Titan guy. ((ANIME TAKEOVER CONFIRMED))

Screenshot 2015-01-22 at 5.29.01 PM

Honestly, this party is really boring. I have no interest in going on. At all. Another month of my membership wasted.

2014 Parties in Review

Hey everyone! This is the grand scheme review of Club Penguin’s parties in 2014, also probably my last post of 2014! Without further ado, let’s begin! *Warning- my loudmouth opinion starts to get heavier throughout the post.

January

We started off in January when I was a newbie blogger (aww). The Prehistoric party kicked off the new year. Before the party, we did have the Spoiler Alert going on, along with #WaddleOn, both discontinued for unknown reasons. I did get to meet a bunch of moderators behind the scenes of Waddle On, which was totally awesome and kicked off my blog.

(I’m scrolling through my blog archives as I type. I don’t even know what I did. I’m a little embarrassed.)

Dino puffles were introduced to the island and the puffle digging game (like Treasure Hunt) came back from the year before. If you put the treasure hunt game in your igloo, you would be on a list of “digloos”. Most of the prehistoric island was the same decorations and set up as the year before. We could transform into dinosaurs, also like the year before.

To sum up January, we could say that it was totally psyching us up for a letdown of a party year. All the parties this year, no exception, either introduced new puffles or had something you could put in your igloo to show up on a special list. Had the Prehistoric Party been the only party with that setup, it would have been excellent. Score for January- 7.5/10. Again, the rooms were lacking new design but this was the first party with the game-or-puffle setup, making us think it would be the only party like it. Wrong.

February

February introduced a new concept of ~shockingly~ having a Fair in the Winter! The Fair is- or was- traditionally held in September, hence the name “Fall Fair”. This year, the Fair got an upgrade with a new color scheme and FANTASTIC (quoth the 9th Doctor) new graphics. The Penguin Style rocked a mix of old and new items, bringing my vision of the perfect CP together.

Club Penguin also released a new quiz for Safer Internet Day, which you could get the Safer Internet sweater for all penguins. I’m really big on staying safe online and cyberbullying, as I have been a victim as well. Naturally, when CP did this, I was excited to see that CP was trying to help out online.

As for the actual party, it was great! The only downside was it was REALLY hard to earn tickets, and the prizes were SUPER pricey. I ended up with only 5 items, and I still really want that green motorcycle. The graphics were on point and sharp. I loved the roller coaster and the Ferris wheel. For me, this was really the height (and leading to the downfall) of Club Penguin this year. Score for February- 8/10. The only thing I didn’t like was that the island wasn’t decorated, which killed the vibe of having a party.

March

March was probably, I hate to say it, one of the worst parties I’ve ever seen. It was supposed to be the Muppet’s World Tour, which was an awful movie to start with. This party was really risky because if the CP team had executed it wrong, it could have came off as racist and offensive. Most of the island was decorated, but there was practically nothing to do. After you picked up the “special item” and did a “special dance” you were awarded with a hat. Really, a hat? The member advantage was the special item, but anyone could join in on the dance. When you finished the whole quest, you could watch the cheesy Muppet performance at the stage. Totally NOT CP’s best.

At least the Penguin Style was nice.

There was also a LOT of hacking in March/April. I have no idea why, I just know it did happen. This would lead to more hacking later on in the year, to the point where people were hacking Parent Accounts.

Anyways, the EPF HQ was finally updated after a few millennia years, and CP welcomed Russian players! Total score for March- 3/10.

April

April was a fair month, I would say. The whole Puffle Party kicked off the idea of releasing new puffles practically monthly, as we got cat and dog puffles. We also got the Puffle Park, and Club Penguin became available for the iPhone and iPod touch. Not too bad. The party itself was good, but it was a little boring because there was nothing to do really except collect items. The items were nice, but basically useless. That’s really all there was to April. Score for April- 6/10.

May

May was the Future Party! But before this party, CP had a mini-party for crazy hats! I’ve been collecting silly hats on CP for a while, so it was good to put them to use. There were free hats and a background for everyone. As for the Future Party… it was okay. We could transform into robots and throw snowballs to stop metors to save CP. When you blasted a metor, you could get points to buy costumes with. The whole island was decorated with a set color scheme, which was really nice to see. Personally, I didn’t find it all that exciting and wanted it to be more Doctor Who-ish. Score for May-7/10.

June

In June, we had the Penguin Cup, which was really good because everyone could relate to it internationally! Again, before the Penguin Cup, we had a Prom/Graduation mini party, which is mostly an American thing. Some international penguins were confused as to what exactly prom is. I thought it was fun, but I don’t really know what the CP community thought of it.

As for the actual party, it was sort of biased and obvious that blue would win :/ Again, the whole island was decorated with a certain color scheme, which made it look nice. We did get a cool minigame for playing soccer with other penguins, kind of like the Muppets takeover. I had fun because the mods were also active on CP that month, and I got to meet Ninja! Score for June- 8/10.

July

July was another one of those months where they psyched us up over a poorly made party. The Music Jam was basically a hidden Disney stars takeover. If there’s one thing I absolutely hate, it’s probably the Disney channel for personal reasons. I don’t feel like ranting now. Anyways, the DJ3K got revamped and replaced with SoundStudio, which we could also play in our igloos. If we put the SoundStudio in your igloo, you would be on a special igloo list. For the party, part of the island was decorated and we had a cruise ship that was supposed to be fun but really wasn’t. To unlock items, we had to watch the stupid singer perform, then we would get the item. The only thing I really liked was the night sky transition, but even that was cheesy. Score for July- 2/10.

August

The August party was, simply put, an epic fail. It was supposed to be Frozen, but the whole thing felt too last-minute-put-together. As if Frozen wasn’t already over-commercialized. Sigh.

There was also a race car mini party, but that wasn’t too good either. Like Frozen, it felt like a last minute backup plan or something. Score for August- 1/10.

September

Oh gosh, September. The party was so awful I didn’t even blog it. The color scheme was all over the place, another unnecessary room was added, and everyone thought CP was going to end. That’s how bad it was. The whole “Club Penguin is fun for everyone” vibe was lacking. Score for September- 0/10.

October

October was CP’s chance to recover from their fail of a Summer. I have no idea how they did financially during those months, but probably not to well. Did CP take a chance to recover? Absolutely not. The party was nothing special, and all the rooms were reused from last year. It seems like little to no effort was put in, except for the anniversary party. The fun part for me in October was that I got to serenade my love for Doctor Who on my blog (sorry not sorry). Score for October- 3/10.

November

November was okay, but it felt like the party’s concept was reused from part of the Fair. We had a Pirate Party, and dressed up as pirates to battle crabs for coins. The whole thing was pointless, and the mini-game glitched up my computer big time. To recover from this, CP finally released their app for mobile, along with the new game Puffle Wild, which is like Candy Crush. If you ask me, CP was more Puffle Wild-centered than the actual party this month. I think either A) They could have had a Medieval party instead or B) Saved the Puffle Party for later and have the Puffle Wild game tied in somehow with the Puffle Party. Score for November- 5/10

December

The CP community thinks that December went terrible party-wise. This year, CP released a very unique TV special on Disney Channel, which I thought was really cute. You could tell a lot of effort and time was put into the animation. As for the Merry Walrus party, it was a tacky attempt at avoiding Christmas commercialism. It was kind of like “hey, we celebrate a very Christmas-y holiday with a Santa-ish thing, but it’s NOT Christmas, nope!”. I didn’t buy it at all. We did get puffles, enhancing the whole (no longer) special puffle-or-igloo-item-or-game-or-item concept. I’m starting to hate that concept. Score for December- 5/10

Total score for the year- (5+5+3+0+1+2+8+7+6+3+8+7.5)12 over 10 times 12, so 55.5/120. Phew. If someone could convert that into a percent, that would be wonderful.

Basically, this year earned less than half of a positive rating. I think to improve CP, the CP team needs to stop releasing puffles monthly and vary up their prize-giving-getting methoods. If everyone is right, CP could possibly be meeting their tragic ending.

Merry Walrus Crystal Puffle Adoption Walkthrough

This post contains major spoilers for those who have not completed the quest yet. If you want to leave the ending a surprise, don’t go past the locations of the crystals.

Anyways, when you go to the gem, today you have to find all of the gems to get earmuffs and/or a crystal puffle! The puffle is currently for members only.

crystalpuffle1

The first crystal is on top of the Dance Club, like any penguin could reach up there.

crystalpuffle2

The second crystal is at the Dock, in between the signs.

crystalpuffle3

As you collect the crystals, they’ll show up in the flower thing. For some reason, there is a bug where it says you didn’t collect anything in the right corner.

crystalpuffle4

The third crystal is at the Lighthouse.

crystalpuffle5

The fourth crystal is in the Forest.

crystalpuffle6

The fifth crystal is on top of the Puffle Hotel. WHY IS IT ALL SO HIGH UP!?

crystalpuffle7

And the final crystal is at the Mine. SPOILERS BELOW.

crystalpuffle8

 

Once you collect all the crystals, you will be magically zapped somewhere and the Merry Walrus will appear with a gift.

crystalpuffle9

He then tells you that he wants to thank you for donating to CFC by giving you a special prize.

crystalpuffle10

Oh, and 500 coins will still be donated when you do this task. Click on the “adopt” button underneath the crystal puffle.

crystalpuffle11

I had no idea what to name my puffle on the spot, so I just typed in the first thing that came to mind.

crystalpuffle12

After that, you’ll get an adoption certificate saying wild puffles can be cared for at the stations around the island (in the Puffle Park and Hotel).

crystalpuffle13

Christmas card quality right here.

crystalpuffle14

Finally, this is what the crystal puffle looks like on your player card.

crystalpuffle16

I think this task was the best out of all of the tasks for Merry Walrus. What do you guys think? What did you name your puffle?

Also, I might do a “year in review” post. Would you penguins like that? I want to share my thoughts and ideas about this year’s parties and whatnot.

Merry Walrus Task 3 Walkthrough

Hello penguins and welcome back to the Merry Walrus walkthrough! Today, we have to ring bells in the Plaza to spread the word that we’re donating to CFC.

bells1

When you go to the Plaza, Merry Walrus will basically restate what I said above.

bells2

There are 8 bells (which I managed to crop out -_-), and if you’re a musician you know that it’s the scale/solfege. If you don’t know what the solfege is, it’s the notes in Do Re Mi in the Sound of Music. Anyways, throw a snowball at the bell you want to ring. You can ring the same bell 8 times, or a different bell, etc, as long as you ring 8 times.

bells3

The apron collected for members has a special dance with sound! All you have to do is just wear the apron and press ‘D’ or go to the chat bar and select ‘dance’.

bells4

Finally, here are the CFC stats as of this morning. I thought the meter would be higher by now…

bells5

What do you guys think? What’s your opinion on Merry Walrus?
