Let’s Discuss… Waiting for Project: Super Secret

It feels like we have all been waiting for PSS (Project: Super Secret) FOR YEARS AND YEARS. Okay, not literally that long, but it’s been about two or maybe three years since we have been aware that Club Penguin has worked on revolutionizing the way we play the game behind-the-scenes. At least they have revealed small segments of PSS last year with social media, videos, and blog posts. 2016 SHOULD be the year of the release (we all hope). If you have been tracking the developments of PSS since day one of its discovery, then you know that *cue the music* it’s been delayed, it’s been delayed. Remember this tweet that Spike Hike sent almost a year ago?

As I am typing this, it did not go live yet, although nearly a year has gone by! It’s all just sneak peeks we’re seeing, so far. Because Club Penguin has been working so hard, putting much effort and time into PSS, the normal game content that we wait for every week lacks. Those clothing and furniture catalogs contain items that we have seen numerous times already. Some parties are reruns. A perfect example of such a party is the Frozen Fever Party. Almost nothing in there was news to us! So yeah, it is evident that not all, but quite a few updates have not appealed to us too much, especially since lots of content has been reused.

Besides the two royal castle rooms and a few exclusive items, nothing else with new with the Frozen Fever Party, just one of the few parties lacking new content while waiting for PSS.

Here’s where I discuss the main topic of this post: Waiting for PSS. Are you okay with the old content as long as Club Penguin works and polishes the project? Or do you think the wait has been way too long and we have dealt with old content for too long? Is this wait worth it in the long run once PSS has released? Or is it not worth it with all the no-so-fresh stuff every week? I would like you know what you think! After all, PSS will impact Club Penguin in ways huge and influential. My overall opinion is that IT IS worth the wait. Change is necessary for progress, and Club Penguin is no exception. Besides, I’ve always wanted to try the virtual world in a 3D experience.

To get the discussion started, here’s a poll I posted on Twitter…

Most of the voters believe the wait is worth it. Nearly half of the voters want to experience PSS before deciding if the wait was worth it. A small percentage say that PSS is not worth waiting so long for. Now that you can see the community’s general opinion of the PSS wait, what do you think? Write your thoughts in the comments below! Thanks for reading and commenting and I’d appreciate it if you could share the post by tweeting/retweeting the link. 🙂

Club Penguin’s Video Series

Now that we’re in 2016, it’s hard to believe that ages ago (well, not really, but I think you get the point), the Club Penguin staff worked on several video series and uploaded them to YouTube and/or their What’s New blog. I miss the days in which we got a weekly supply of Club Penguin video awesomeness. I would get on my computer and anxiously wait for the next one to release. Club Penguin used to make a BOATLOAD of videos. From the Spoiler Alert, to #WaddleOn, to sneak peek videos, they entertained us with fun and amusing content outside of the game itself! Some prime employees bringing the videos to life were Polo Field, Megg, Ninja, Businesmoose, and Daffodaily5. Three of them have left, and only Megg and Ninja are still working at the Club Penguin offices. These days, the only one video series that Club Penguin makes is the monthly Fan Art, and even so, their release dates are inconsistent. The last Fan Art video featured November!

Maybe Project: Super Secret is keeping them busy, I don’t know, but I wish Club Penguin created more videos for our viewing entertainment. Anyway, here are Club Penguin’s former video series:

The Spoiler Alert

MY FAVORITE. In my opinion, the stuff in those videos were so wacky, they made me burst out laughing. It’s cool that we got to see Polo Field, Megg, and Ninja act in real life too, as well as invite guest stars, including Billybob and Spike Hike! What’s more, the Spoiler Alert crew invited us penguins to come online for meetups for the purpose to record them, which would then be implemented in the videos. It was a FANTASTIC way to interact with the Club Penguin community! Oh, and I forgot about the spoilers (that’s why it was named that way, in the first place). The staff members presented spoilers of upcoming updates while having a good time. Click here to check out the collection of Spoiler Alert videos and watch one or two.

#WaddleOn

You know about my Club Penguin comedy videos that can be watched on my YouTube channel? They were largely inspired by the #WaddleOn series, CP’s weekly sketch show that was meant to entertain the audience with its silliness and hilariousness. I thought they were good, but sometimes went a little overboard with the jokes. But I still miss them! The penguins acting in them may or may not have been owned by employees. Anyway, sometimes, the makers of #WaddleOn hosted meetups to film them for their videos.

Sneak Peek Videos

Happy77 started the Club Penguin video era in 2011. However, in late 2012, she left the company, so who would continue the videos? None other than Polo Field and Businesmoose! They recorded interesting scenarios involving their marvelous acting skills in the next parties, showing sneak peeks of them along the way. Some penguins like Ninja and Daffodaily5 appeared now and then. Instead of posting PNG images of party rooms on the blog, why not act in them and use imagination to present them in a fun and creative form? The sneak peek video below is my favorite one.
