1-29-14 In-Game Update: Super Bowl Sunday

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Logged into my TSTO this morning to see this GLORIOUS Screen:2014-01-29 14.20.42
It appears EA has graced us with a little Super Bowl Sunday mini-update!   (Shameless FOX plug…I’m sure but I don’t mind 🙂 )
Update auto-starts with a dialogue between Homer and Lisa and then both Homer and Lisa have to be free for a 1 hr task.

Click read more for update content, dialogue and freebie spoilers….BUT if you don’t want to know about them I will tell you to make sure you play your game on Super Bowl Sunday for a couple of freebies (1 is a new item not listed in the items above…something brand new to TSTO).

Update #1 9:50 AM EST: So far it’s  a 3 part quest with dialogue and then the quests seem to end.  Looks like it could be a multi-day questline.

Also, it appears as though EA has brought back a limited-time item from last year (Season 24 Yard Sale)…the Duff Party Bus is back.  For 50 Donuts you can own the Duff Party Bus (yes that’s the same price it was when it was available last year).  2.25% Bonus Cash and XP to all jobs.  It is unique…so if you already have it from last year you won’t get the option to purchase it again. (Note: 1/30/14 update made this no longer unique.  May now be purchased multiple times)
Tapped_Out_Duff_Party_BusThe Duff Racer is also back and available for in game cash purchase (ie free).  It’ll cost you $250,000 and again it is unique so you can only have 1 in your town.  If you have one from last year you won’t be able to purchase another one.

Here’s the Stupor Bowl Walkthrough…up to Part 3

Stupor Bowl Weekend Pt. 1
Auto Started Homer

Homer: Lisa, come in here and pray with Daddy.
Lisa: Pray?  Oh no!  Dad, are you dying?
Homer: With my lifestyle?  Probably.  But that’s not why I’m praying.  I’m praying because it’s almost Sunday… Super Bowl Sunday!  I just want the game to go off with out any lockouts, blackouts, or Sum of All Fears-esque nuclear attacks.
Lisa: But all of those problems are completely avoidable or fictional.  They’re just created by players, owners, and TV stations to make more money.  In fact, when you think about it, the whole Super Bowl seems about making money.
Homer: Shut your blasphemous mouth!  God loves football.  How dare you question God!  Now get me another beer.
Lisa: You’re out of beer.
Homer: WHY, GOD? WHY?
Make Homer Go on a Beer Run- 1hr, Earns $70, 17XP
Make Lisa Investigate Super Bowl Financials- 1hr, Earns $70, 17XP
Homer: Okay Lisa, put down those financial magazines and help me carry this stuff to the car.  I got two cases of Duff and three cases of Duff Lite!
Lisa: That’s a lot of beer.  Are you having a Super Bowl Party?
Homer: Ooh, that’s a good idea!  Apu, get me another four cases of each.  Also, that barrel of Duff-flavored cheese blurgs and this industrial-sized tub of Duff-brand chicken swangs.
Lisa: Cheese blurgs and chicken swangs?  Is that even food?
Apu: Of course.  They’re made from all-natural cardboard and organic liposuction waste.
Homer: Mmmm… rich lady fat.

Stupor Bowl Weekend Pt. 2
Lisa Starts 

Lisa: This just doesn’t add up- Super Bowl tickets are expensive, but don’t cover team salaries.  The ads cost a fortune, but are minuscule compared to the licensing deal.  And surplus revenue falls way short of operating costs.
Homer: What are you talking about?
Lisa: This Super Bowl is generating billions of dollars, yet somehow no one’s making money from it.
Homer: What about FOX?  FOX wouldn’t run something year after year if it wasn’t making them money.
Lisa: So you’d think, but i’m just not seeing it.  Maybe I missed something in these balance sheets.
Homer: Awww, kids and their balance sheets.  Now, as the consummate host, I must taste the snacks to ensure the highest quality of food for my guests.
Make Lisa Crunch the Numbers- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Make Homer Crunch Duff Warm Ranch Chips- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp

Stupor Bowl Weekend Pt. 3
Homer Starts 

Homer: Lisa, help!  The seagulls are back– they think I’m a beached whale.  And they’re not the only ones…
Sea Captain: Yarr, not a drip of ambergris on him.
Lisa: Dad, did you eat all the party snacks and pass out on the floor?
Homer: Judging me isn’t going to get rid of these gulls.
Lisa: Please Dad, I’m still busy tracking the Super Bowl profit stream from media ad sales through to player’s salaries.
Homer: Can you re-describe that as a famous movie quote?
Lisa: I’m following the money.
Homer: Hmm, I haven’t seen “All The President’s Men”.  I’ll have to take your word for it.
Lisa: Why don’t you get up and take a shower?  It smells like the sea in here, and it’s not coming from the gulls.
Homer: Probably because of all the salt I ate.  Don’t worry — I know how to fix that.
Make Homer Drink Duff Beer- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Lisa Request Subpoenas of NFL Tax Documents- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
