Addicts Weekly Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Due to POPULAR request….we’ve moving up our open thread time so that our friends outside of the US can participate too!  Let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Now…enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  Time for another Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Open Thread.  No new Simpsons tonight…but the Superhero Event winds down this week.  What did you think of Issue 4?  Have you completed it yet?  What do you think the next event will bring?  Our Meet and Greet was last night, we met a lot of you wonderful readers!  Were you there? Did you have fun hanging out with fellow Addicts?  Last week of Spring Training in baseball, is your team ready for the season?  More College basketball action tonight, so far 2 teams have made it to the Final Four which 2 will be next?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Episode Recap: Waiting For Duffman

What’s up party people?

Wookiee popping in with another episode recap for y’all. A bunch of new episodes have aired over the last month or so and true to form, I fell behind again in writing them up for all my friends who cant see them or like my random recaps of them. The good news is that as of this post, I’m all caught up again.  Well, good news for me at least.  Since noone has revolted about my stream of consciousness style reviews, I stuck with that format. Here’s my thoughts on Season 26, Episode 17: “Waiting For Duffman”.

Where Did THAT Come From – Shorty’s

What’s the haps amigos? Wookiee popping in for even more origin goodness for all my favorite skyfingers.

Of course, a new level means new stuff and that’s where I come in. Here’s a small hint… all the items have something to do with the Lovejoys. Surprised? I must admit a playful side of me wants to leave it at ust that but you know I’d never leave you hanging. For this round of where did THAT come from, we’ll take a look at the Shorty’s.

In-Game Update: Issue 4 Bug Fix

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Looks like EA has released the patch to fix many of the problems you’re experiencing with Issue 4!

2015-03-25 19.44.25

So log into your game and make sure the latest update downloads.  If you don’t see it download when you start up TSTO hard close and restart your game (you should also restart your device…that always helps) that should bring the download up.

Hopefully this will help MANY of you get back into the action (and you’re not far behind at all!).

If you’re still experiencing problems after you’ve done this update, we strongly recommend that you contact EA.  Let them know what’s going on in your game, as it’s possible you may require and additional patch.

That’s in my friends…happy Boss Fighting!
