Howdy doo Addictereenos!
You know… every time I say howdy it makes me laugh. First off because I’m not from Texas (although I have lived in San Antonio for almost a year collectively) and secondly because when I was in the military flying on planes, if you sat next to someone and said howdy, it meant you’d farted. Way too funny to think of that in connection with a word.
Anywho… this post isn’t about Texas, the military or farts but I had to share. You know I’m random like that. What this post IS about is some speculation I had recently about possible SPOILERS EA may or may not have told us about. If that’s your bag… go right on ahead an click continue reading. Seems there was more to spy than some realized.
Once upon a time (earlier this year), there was a small bit of dialogue that got fans of TSTO all excited, myself included. Home was talking about things to come in the game and said “Like the Monorail, and the Stonecutters, and a proper version of Sideshow Bob…”.
This got a lot of us talking and even inspired me to write a whole post about the Monorail. We all talked and talked about it and then EA brought us an entire event based on the Stonecutters. Could this mean that bit of dialogue was actually a teaser/forecast/spoiler?
Well, that got me paying attention to what was said in dialogue and besides the mention of Janey Powell a couple of times, I didn’t see much. Then we got Level 42. This level brought us some really new cool items, some of which have been clamored over for a while by veteran tappers, but did it also give us hints of more to come?
I know a lot of folks may not have Chester Lampwick in their towns because of the price tag he came with but his questline had some really interesting things in it. It started off with Homer making fun of Lampwick’s obscurity. (you can find out more about him in this post)
Senor Ding-Dong! I know this reference might be really out there for some people but I talked about his store way back in a post I did about Gil Gunderson. As a bonus, he’s voiced by Dan Castellaneta so he could be voiced in game! He has a store, he has a van AND he once employed Gil who also was once rumored to become a real character.
But Chester’s dialogue didn’t stop there. He went on to rant about none other than Lil Vicki Valentine who some of us know as Lisa’s tap dancing instructor.
The addition of Vicki and her Dance School would make my incessant use of tapa-tapa-tapa make a lot more sense to all of you. I’d just love to see Lisa with the crazy Frink tap shoes all over Springfield.
Do you know who that is? It’s Sideshow Bob’s Mommy!
Of all the Chester dialogue, this one probably has me the most excited. Could we finally be getting the proper version of Sideshow Bob with his Mom and quite possibly the rest of his family? Wow and wowza, I need to calm down.
Lots to be possibly excited about even if it is only just teasing on EA’s part. The only reason I believe they could be clues is it might be EA’s way of rewarding players for the premium purchase. Good news is I’m here to share with all my freemium peeps. The last bit of dialogue I’ll point out was there for all tappers in Roger Myers Jr.’s questline.
Krusty’s very own Poppa. If I’m not mistaken, this isn’t the first time he’s been mentioned either. Maybe it’s possible that the Rabbi and Temple Beth Springfield could be planned for the future. Might make sense since the interweb is abuzz with rumors of the Rabbi’s death next season.
Well my friends, that’s all I had to share. Whether this is all just wishful thinking or conjecture, I think it’s still fun to consider what might be ahead of us in the glorious game that is The Simpsons Tapped Out. What do you think of all these ideas? Which one would make you the happiest? Did you even know who some of these people were? Sound off below and keep on tapa-tapa-tapping like the classy readers I know you to be.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
