Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday we were hit with a little in game update. This time EA was prepping us for this Sunday’s Episode of the Simpsons, The Musk Who Fell to Earth, with a little Episode tie-in!
To prepare for the episode you’ll be able to purchase Slave Labor Willie (for $2,000) as well as a few premium electric cars. In addition a fun little questline will popup to get us all ready for the episode. It’s got a few twists and turns…and of course a little cliffhanger. So let’s take a look at the questlines that will popup during the Musk Episode Tie-In…
WARNING Dialogue Spoilers Below…if you don’t want to know details our rundown post has a basic who to keep free list.
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 1
Homer: Ugh! Not another TV sitcom featuring a fat guy who sits on the couch all day!
Marge: Homer, the power’s been out all morning.
Homer: Then what have I been sitting on the couch watching all day?
Marge: Your reflection.
Homer: Man, I’ve really let myself go. Well, the easiest way out of any hole is through the bottom. Marge, bacon me!
Marge: No power means no stove means no bacon.
Homer: NO BACON?!
Make Homer Suffer Without Bacon- 3m, Earns $6, 2xp
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 2
Lisa: Hey, Dad, come quick! Mr. Burns still has power!
Homer: Literally or figuratively? Don’t answer, just get me my angry mob pants.
Lisa: You lost your angry mob pants during yesterday’s angry mob.
Homer: Then get me my church pants. I’m usually pretty angry in there too.
Make Springfielders Round Up Into an Angry Mob- 3m, Earns $6, 2xp freemium and $10, 3xp premium
Lenny: Hey, Burns, how come you get power while the rest….most importantly me…don’t?
Carl: It’s not fair! We’re living like backwoods deadbeats! No offense, Cletus.
Cletus: None taken…or understood.
Mr. Burns: Springfield Nuclear is now offering “premium service” where VIP clients get access to power before the rest of you. But there will still be plenty to go around for the poor. Like lifeboats on the Titanic. Or scholarship positions at prestigious universities.
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 3
Willie: I can stand hundreds of years of British oppression, for being mocked as a foreigner, for making minimum wage to clean up kids’ puke…but Willie cannot stand un-microwaved burritos!
Reach Level 10 and Build Willie’s Shack
Make Willie Create a Business Plan- 3m, Earns $6, 2xp
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 4
Lisa: This is awful. Just think what these blackouts are doing to the moth community! What will they flock to?
Homer: Mr. Burns’s? His place is lit up like a Christmas tree. And his Christmas tree is lit up like some sort of SUPER Christmas tree! Kinda early to have it out though, if you ask me.
Lisa: Willie is right. We need to do something. And while I’m not accustomed to backbreaking labor…I am accustomed to committees, bureaucracy, and red tape!
Make Lisa Form a Committee- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 5
Smithers: Sir, a group headed by an eight year old girl has issued a stern letter in favor of power grid neutrality.
Mr. Burns: Incinerate the letter and send her the usual response.
Smithers: But sir, she’s a minor.
Mr. Burns: You’re right. Send her a pony head instead.
Reach Level 11 and Build the Control Building
Make Springfielders Protest Burns’ Premium Service- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp freemium, $420, 105xp premium.
The Devil and the FCC Pt. 6
Mr. Burns starts
Mr. Burns: So young lady, does your organization hold any actual authority?
Lisa: Not legal authority but considerable moral and ethical authority.
Mr. Burns: A simple no would suffice. So unless you are here with a business proposal, I’m afraid I’m going to have to release the hounds. They’ve got new electrified collars and very, very long extension cords.
Lisa: A business proposal, hmm…what’s nuclear power’s biggest competitors?
Mr. Burns: Giant radioactive monsters that crawl out of the ocean and attack our cities?
Lisa: No, the oil industry! And I know just the way to drive them out of Springfield…
Mr. Burns: More giant radioactive monsters?
Lisa: No, the electiric car. All you have to do is promise cheap electricity to everyone who buys one. You win AND the environment wins.
Mr. Burns: Is there any way to make it just me that wins?
Lisa: I don’t know…You’d have to work pretty hard to pollute the earth more than the oil companies.
Mr. Burns: Then I’ll do it!
Make Mr. Burns Promote the Electric Car- 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp
He’s Got the Power Pt. 1
Willie: That Mr. Burns really scalds me haggis!
Lisa: I know, but what choice do we have? His plant is the only source of power in town.
Willie: There’s one source of power Mr. Burns doesn’t have control over –the human spirit! By which I mean witchcraft. It’s just like my pa used to say, “When life gives you lemons, squeeze them into your open wounds, you sissy boy. You’re the reason why your mother left. Sweet dreams, son.”
Have Slave Labor Willie Generate Electricity- 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp
He’s Got the Power Pt. 2
Willie: Ach! So was I able to man-power-up the town?
Lisa: Um… I think I saw a light bulb flicker. It could have been a firefly, though.
Willie: Sounds like a job well done! Now to celebrate with a hearty meal.
Make Willie Subsist on Gruel- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
