Zaboo Needs a Friend
One gamer's quest for the best friend the internet can find….


October 16th, 2012

He may not look it, but beneath his cute, cuddly exterior beats the heart of a true templar warrior. Though prone to emotional outbursts (like his namesake in Dragon Age Origins), Alistair is a tank like no other. Once you win his heart, he is a steady, unshakable ally. A true team-player, Alistair will tank for your party in even the most high-leveled of dungeons, aggroing the toughest bosses (mice, birds, possums, etc.) and loyally depositing their carcasses at your feet (leaving you the best loot, of course). Alistair is truly a friend like no other and is an essential element of any serious party.

Little Boo sits on my shoulder while I play all of my online games, and sometimes on the rarer occasions of watching tv. He also makes an excellent foot warmer for the upcoming chilly winter nights!

He also is the cutest little thing EVER!

While Garrus possesses no experience in MMOs, he is no stranger to the RPG genre. At the age of ten weeks old he managed to beat Mass Effect 3. His early success at saving the galaxy from elder beings of Lovecraftian-grade terror, Garrus has continued to pursue his heroic inclinations through traditional pen and paper roll-playing (preference for rogue class) and physical training (specialty in spins and agility) to be the best dog he can be. He has also slayed two dragons: disembowelling the first and rending the other limb from limb (much to his human’s chagrin and PetCo’s pleasure). Though always clever and up to adventure, Garrus enjoys a good cuddle just as much as a good quest, being most fond of head scratches. Needless to say, with a resume as well rounded as this, his disposition and skill set are a perfect match for the active yet sensitive warlock.

Finnegan and Dougal

October 16th, 2012

Because two faboo puppy brothers are better than one! They love to cuddle and will play amongst themselves while you are questing. You may have to tell them to shush as they play loudly.

Skylar, or Skyking as he prefers to be called, is clearly Zaboo’s pet soulmate. Picked up as a stray kitten, Skyking is full of street smarts and man knowledge. Both men can sit around and purvey themselves as the masters of their domain while simultaneously sitting on the couch and actually doing nothing. A master of the art of grubbing, Skyking will be more than happy to eat like a man with Zaboo: all day, every day (so long as Vork doesn’t find out they’re overstepping their ration portions). This hot kitty also has a way with les femmes as he is able to attract them in with his soft, spotted fur and Justin Bieber-esque meow. And like a good bro-kitty, Skyking is always down for being Zaboo’s wingman.

Sir Reginald “Reggie” Fuzzybottom

October 16th, 2012

Zaboo- I know you and Reggie will be BFFs forever, for he is fiercely loyal to his friends. He has a force bark that will scare away any of your enemies and will snuggle with you at night so you don’t get lonely.

He is also known as Reggie “the destroyer” for he hasn’t met a stuffed foe he could not best!

Bronson is a loving and loyal labX. He will comfort you when you are sad, never judge your obsessive tendencies, and will always be by your side even when you get ganked in the Game by a gang of PKers. Bronson doesn’t ask for much in return for his love but he does expect to be fed twice daily at exactly 7 am and 6 pm. If you forget, don’t worry, he will telepathically remind you through a longing stare.

Ever since he was a pup he has enjoyed sitting on my lap while I play MMORPGs on the interwebs. He helps me jump around on the screen by resting his chin on the space bar.

He may look like an innocent corgi, but as his Joker hoodie will tell you, he can be very mischevious. But other times he feels like being lawful good, as shown by his Batman collar. Ooooh, unpredictability!!

Pick Frodo Pupkins to be your new BFF and I promise that you will have many romps in the wilds of the MMO worlds! Also, he’ll show you all the best places to roll in the yard.

This fur ball of a mess is named Spacely. Just take a look at him in a month or two and you’ll be wondering if he even is a dog. Spacely wonders that too sometimes. He is a confused little guy who thinks he’s a people. We play long with him so crazy Spacely doesn’t come out. Some of his favorite things consist of eggs, sharing his bad dog/human breath with anyone who will let him, dancing, rolling the window down in the car for you, and guarding you while going to the bathroom. But Spacelys most favorite thing in the world is PIZZA PARTYS!!!!! So if you feel unsafe going to the bathroom, and love pizza partys, then Spacely is the buddy for you.

Codex and Bladezz

October 16th, 2012

The name says it all. She is just like the real thing. Only tinier and with demon eyes. She pukes easily, has poor balance, and needs constant attention and reassurance since she has low self esteem. She also has a brother named Bladezz who likes to torment her, thinks he’s God’s gift to the world, and has a girly man voice. Together, you will make a majority of a raiding party!

P.S. You could rent them out to Clara as babysitters, they’d be a better mother than her.
