The Season Premiere of the Simpsons is coming THIS Sunday on Fox and to celebrate the start of the 25th year EA has given us a mini update. With the episode tie in update comes the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels, a limited-time premium decoration for your Springfield! Now I’m sure you’re asking yourself, ‘Should I spend donuts on this?’ Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels and if they’re worth your donuts:
Decoration: Hi-Glow Waste Barrels
Donut Price: 40 Donuts
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.05%
Conform-O-Meter Points: Vanity +400
Where Can I Place It?: On the main (grass or pavement) sections of Springfield only. (No Squidport or beach)
Final Thought: At 40 donuts and a 2% bonus, it’s certainly not the worst investment you can make. While I have added them to my Springfield I do think the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels are a large & somewhat weird addition to TSTO. Although it makes perfect sense, since the town was blown up and all, but it’s just a weird object to try and place, at least in my opinion. Normally this is something I’d say pass on, since the concept of the decoration itself isn’t that great and for the donuts paid/bonus % awarded there are better items you can spend your donuts on that will make a little more sense in your town. However…this is a LIMITED TIME item. Once it’s gone it’s gone and you can never purchase it again, so be sure to take that into consideration when making your decision.
What do you think? Will you be picking up your Hi-Glow Waste Barrels before they’re gone? Let us know in the comments below.
