First thing you need to do is GO LOG IN because if you log in between June 6th 2011 and June 14th 2011, you'll get a free pet snack in your gift window! WOOT! FREE! I'm so good with free stuff. :)
The next thing you need to do is watch this video and pause that sucker at 14 seconds.
haha! It's Uncle Sam-eprachaun!
The official announcement is also in the game's patcher, so . . . you know . . . click that while you're loading up your game and read it.
I'm pretty sure we're all excited to find the new pets that will be arriving in the spiral. It's a good time, and I REALLY REALLY hope that these new pets will be added to the loot tables of bosses around the spiral. I'm thinking that's usually per normal . . . if it's a crowns item, it's also on the loot table of a boss around the spiral.
. . . side note . . .
So today over Twitter I mentioned that I was in attendance at the very first Lollapalooza, which is where the whole "palooza" term originated AFAIK. I mentioned that it'd be awesome for KingsIsle to release a "Siouxsie Banshee" as a pet. ;-) Why? What? Huh?
Oh it was just a reference to Siouxsie and the Banshee's that was one of the acts from that first Lollapalooza. haha.
I'm really showing my age. ;-) (Also, I want the punk at :38 seconds to be one of the new pets too . . . or a Henry Rollins pet . . . .)
