Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Week 5

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of buildings in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Building Bracket Battle.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Look up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane! No, it’s Fallout Boy back in Springfield to save it’s residents from hard to open ice cream containers!

Showoff Announcement: Reader’s Choice

First I want to add a little note…I know a bunch of you are waiting on SIB posts for the new content.  I’m working on them.  My plans for today got a little derailed as the Tiny Addict is currently under the weather and I had to pick her up from school early.  So you won’t be seeing the SIBs today, but I will make it up to you tomorrow. Thanks for your patience! -Alissa 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and I thought with a little lull in the game let’s have a little Showoff fun.  This time around it’s READER’S CHOICE!   So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The next showoff will feature whichever areas of your Springfield that you want to show!  (again remember limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole down, unless you want to do a giant stitch of your town into 1 photo)  Sure we could do another Superheroes Showoff, but we’ve already done that….twice (here and here, if you’re looking for inspiration)! So I thought this would be more fun.

So use this downtime to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Reader’s Choice areas from your Springfield and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post featuring your designs on Monday July 31st.

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Sunday July 30th (giving you loads of time to get your areas together) can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

IF you Email your submissions please put Showoff Reader’s Choice in the subject line, and make sure your photos are in JPEG or PNG format..please.  Also, be sure your submissions are in on time.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Predictability and Speculation, It All Comes Down To Timing…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I couldn’t help but notice yesterday when Superheroes 3 hit many of you expressed disappointment that it wasn’t a major event.  You were expecting EA’s usual format..big event, mini event, big event…and it didn’t happen this time around.  Instead we got an “old school” update.  Some new dialogue and a bunch of items in the store.

For those of you confused as to why EA’s not following their traditional format (Big event, mini event, big event)…I talked about this in the comments earlier this week, let’s do a little forecasting and speculation (really any excuse to bust out my crystal ball..)…

Turbo Tappin’ Superheroes 3: Fallout Boy’s Rise from the Shadows

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Earlier today EA dropped an “old school” update into our pocket sized Springfields… Superheroes 3.  Another quick round of “up and atom”, with a short questline and a bunch of new and returning items in our stores.

So, let’s take a quick look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of Fallout Boy’s new questline…and his Rise from the Shadows….

In-Game Update: Superheroes 3?!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In-Game Update just hit our pocket-sized Springfields…NOT a major event that requires an App Download.  No this is like another mini-event.  Short, sweet and something to hold us over until the next “major” event.

Going through everything now myself, so I’ll update this post with more as I get it.  But for now know that you’ll have an initial task with Fallout Boy for 1hr

Also, can I just say…Superheroes? Again? Really?  Come on EA.  Once was awesome.  Twice was ok.  But three times?  Really?  This isn’t Weekend at Bernie’s….

At least it’s a mini event…and it looks like some fun additions were added..

Back with more in a bit…More details below the fold…
