Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Online Free To Play This Weekend

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean Online

Metro passed along the news that there is free online play this weekend only with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean online!

Want to be like Jack Sparrow?  Why, not?  I signed up to play as Lightning McBeard but that was my screen name only apparently. I then had to choose a new handle from three rotating lists.  It makes funny combos like Billy Candlemaker.  I ended up with something like Bobby BarrelBreaker if memory suffices.

You need to download some software to get the online experience to work but they walk you through that all online.  There is a tutorial on how fighting etc all works but if you have played any first-person type of games online it is very easy to figure out and if not it still seemed pretty intuitive.  Here is what the home page looks like:

If you want to have a lot of fun, you can always talk like a Pirate on Talk Like A Pirate Day (for real!) or just type in some text and you get this “Where are all of the new releases for pete’s sake!” translated into Pirate-speak which reads like this: “Aye, whar be all o’ the new releases for pete’s sake, gar!”

A real hoot!  Speaking of Pirates…wazzup PirateDad!  Har!  Or is it – Gar!

    YARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! PD, in the category of questions not answered; ‘Why is the rum always gone?”. All the best to our lubbers squandering the grounds of SDCC!

    I just took a look at some of the offerings for SDCC and some of them are OK. New haulers (yawn) How bout the rest of the racing teams?!?! >:(

    New Tokyo Mater stuff – ok but not going to hold my breath for them to come out (can’t even get the few things that are out now…). UF Mater cute…… but – pass….. Wrestling mater – oops just threw up in my mouth a little – NO!

    Sorry for the negativity – just frustrated……

    Here’s a fun fact:

    Q: Why do pirates wear a patch over one eye?

    A: So when they go below deck, the covered eye is already conditioned for darkness. (Mythbusters)

    Q: How much did PirateDad pay for his piercings?

    A: A buck-an-ear! (My 10 year old)
