Did you hear that? You’re just imagining things. Let’s just get out of here. Oh, my girsch! Run! We’ve got company! Eat this! Who are you? You don’t have to do this! Burn in hell!
Phew… that was intense. If you haven’t figured it out, Halloween time is approaching in our beloved TSTO and in preparation, I’ve been watching one or two horror movies to get amped up. In the spirit of upcoming in-game spookiness, I thought it’d be fun to pick some items I’d love to see for the next event. (If you’re interested, my 2013 list is here.)
To start off, let’s look at buildings. My biggest hope is for the return of previous items for newer tappers.
Of course, in the new building department, I’d love to see the mansion from “The Shinning”. ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES WOOKIEE A DULL FUZZBALL.
Previous Halloween events featured zombies and gremlins but I’d really love to see Springfield filled with Killer Dolphins. If that was eliminated by King Snorky last year, how about killing Homer clones or maybe even having crows fly all over Springfield a la Hitchcock’s The Birds? My little Ewok even suggested honoring the “Island of Dr. Hibbert” segment of Treehouse of Horror XIII and turn all of our characters into their animal versions. I’ve heard this idea before and it’s still genius.
Something that would bring me immense joy would be classic horror movie characters in Springfield. What could be better than Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, the Mummy, etc. running through our towns. I wrote about a bunch of their appearances previously. Alas, we’ll probably see the Tweenlight character Edmund instead. Is it too much to hope for Cthulhu in our towns?
Hopefully this year also includes some rad skins for characters. Here are some images of costumes I’d love to see.
Each of those could be fun but Rigellian Maggie to me is a must (with Clockwork Orange Bart as a close second). It’d be the perfect Halloween present to add Maggie FINALLY into the game. Besides all those, EA could also show some love to Comic Book Guy. I’d probably roar in happiness if we saw The Collector, Clobber Girl, Stretch Dude and of course Lucy Lawless.
So much goodness we should be seeing soon. Until then, it’s time to hide all my pens in the house so I don’t sign any shady deals in order to have enough sprinklies for this event. EA should have a bunch of returning and new items headed our way to frighten and amaze all of us.
Got anything specific you really want to see this Halloween? What returning item do you really crave? Got any awesome plans for your Springfield? Sound off with your thought and stay classy as usual. Until next time… TTFN… Wookiee out!
