Friends, Addicts, Springfield-people… lend me your ears… lol…
So… the holiday event is still upon us and by now everyone is well into Phase II of the TSTO Christmas Event. The Feds are gone and our game’s are now an edition of Elves Gone Wild. Anyone besides me enjoy giving that little mooner his comeuppance? Anywho… with new stuff comes my promise to let you know just where the items come from in The Simpsons universe. For this edition, we’ll take a look at the Ice Castle.
So the beginnings of the event brought us the Ice Princess Martin skin with a 60 minute and 8 hour task. This was our freebie tie-in for Season 26, Episode 9: “I Won’t Be Home For Christmas”. Of course, his task list seemed small but EA apparently had sneaky premium plans for us. For Phase II, they made the Ice Castle available for 120 donuts and if you didn’t know it yet, the castle makes Martin’s costume have 3 extra premium tasks but how does this all make sense from the show?
Well my friends, it’s yet another tie-in. In a Where Did THAT Come From first, I figured I’d just show you the clip instead of writing too many words. Suffice to say, if you haven’t been living under a rock, the skin and costume are Frozen parodies. Seems that movie truly has taken over everything including The Simpsons and TSTO. The couch gag of the episode lampooned the uber popular animated movie.
So there you go. The Ice Castle in all its glory. Sure Lisa may have worn Elsa’s dress in the gag, but based on the numerous jokes about Martin’s particular affinity for closets, him wearing it makes sense and makes me giggle. If you need an excuse, just pretend Martin was hiding in Lisa’s closet and borrowed it lol. Let’s not forget him as Calliope, the muse of poetry, in “Treehouse of Horror III” (S4:E5).
I kinda wish we’d seen the Olaf skin for Homer but oh well. So we got an original spoof and a spoof from a recent episode… that wraps up this one folks. I’ll leave you with Martin’s expanded task list. The two outdoor animations are entertaining, especially the 12 hr one. As for the indoor tasks in the Ice Castle, it glows when Martin is inside.
