What a Wookiee Wants: Valentine’s Day 2016

Love is in the air they say… or is it smog? I always get those two mixed up. Is there a love alert today? Do we have to keep the kids indoors? Is Cupid polluting the atmosphere? Even in the middle of a mini-event, I find myself wondering what is coming down the pike in our beloved game. Even after 2 years and 4 months of content, there’s still so much that could be added. Every once in a while, I put on my thinking cap and consider some options. Here’s what a Wookiee wants for VD.  (Not VD lol)

Valentine's Panorama

Homer Valentine's Day TSTO DialogueAs it’s officially February, TSTO experience makes a lot of us tappers expect something for Valentine’s Day. While only EA knows what they have in store, it’s always fun to guess.  I should probably start by saying I wouldn’t be surprised to see this event have to do with the upcoming Valentine’s Day episode, “Love Is in the N2-O2-Ar-CO2-Ne-He-CH4” (S27:E13) airing on February 14th, 2016.  It’s an episode involving Frink and the old folks of the Retirement Castle so you’re guess is as good as mine about what it would entail.

I came up with a ton of ideas previously (2014)… so many in fact I  had to break them up into two parts (one/deux) but that never keeps me from having more. There’s not a ton of VD episodes to pick from but I thought of some stuff outside the regular Valentine’s Day options. I started off with a couple decorations.

Every VD is all about the things you should give your sweetheart.  I’d love to see this billboard from “Homie the Clown” (S6:E15). Nothing says lovin like an English muffin.

I could go for the L’il Lisa or Majestic Marge from “Dangers on a Train” (S24:E22). It was one of the uber romantic things Homer did for his wife and would go nice with any mall set-up.

Of course, a lot of ideas often come to me when I am writing other posts. This entire WAWW stems from when I came across the Aprodite Inn from “Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy” (S6:E10). This definitely seems like a romantic building to come with a VD update.

Aphrodite Inn Simpsons

This building got me to thinking about new fancy restaurants characters could eat at. Loving and eating seem synonymous to me lol. One idea is Amoré in “And Maggie Makes Three” (S6:E13). When the moon hits your eye like a big donut pie that’s Amoré. Also funny to pick this one since it’s not the romantic place Homer and Marge went on the night they conceived Maggie. They didn’t go to Chez Nous either, they went to Krusty Burger to dance while ordering in the drive-thru.

Amore and Chez Nous Simpsons

To me, fancy restaurants always have names in other languages. I love the name of this next one.  How about Le Snotterie from “The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase” (S8:E24)? In fancy restaurants, they say some folks eats snails. Never done it because I always escar-go to other places but how about a restaurant named after a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc like The Enchanted Snail from “Moms I’d Like to Forget” (S22:E10)?

Speaking of Moe’s… how about an outdoor love tester for the game aka the Love-matic Grampa. Heck, I know people might hate me but a mini-game using the love tester could be fun too.

And lastly, Chuck Dukewagon’s. While not a very romantic destination… it was the restaurant shown in “Married to the Blob” (S25:E10) when Comic Book Guy first dated his precious Kumiko.

EA could bring this building and make it a combo in the triumphant return of Kumiko.unlock_kumiko

While we’re talking about romantic interests… I guess I could point out I did a whole post about TSTO Puppy Love for Bart and Lisa. My picks this year for characters that could include funny romance questlines are as follows:

Of all the characters I’d like to see romantically linked with Bartholomew J. Simpson, I always pine for Mary Wrestlemania Spuckler. I know the future seems to indicate he’ll end up elsewhere but to that I say Jenda, schmenda. Bart should wise up and love him some Mary.  Sure she’s a Spuckler, but I think she’s the cat’s pajamas, the bee’s knees… The Bee’s Knees!

Mary Wrestlemania Spuckler Simpsons

The Puppy Love post had a bunch of love interests for Lisa, but I can’t believe I didn’t think of the perfect pairing.  Why not bring us Mr. Bergstrom from “Lisa’s Substitute” (S2:E19)?

Mr. Bergstrom Simpsons

Cupid skins for Maggie and Gerald could be fun. If not skins, at least a joint task.

Maggie and Baby Gerald cupids Simpsons

It’s about time things came up Milhouse in the game and I’m still rooting for Samantha Stankey from “Bart’s Friend Falls in Love” (S3:E23).

My last pick is Maya from “Eeny Teeny Maya Moe” (S20:E16).

Even a homonculus troll like Moe needs some love now and again. Maya even could come with her cute little house.

Maya's House Simpsons

My last thoughts are why not just completely go off the rails. Instead of a lovey dovey mess, just go literal and finally bring us Li’il Vicki Valentine and her dance studio.

Lil' Vicki Valentine's School of Dance Simpsons

How about pink shirts for everyone like in “Stark Raving Dad” (S3:E1)? We could get some sort of quest that included earning the Springfield Laundromat from “Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song” (S5:E19).

Pink Shirts Springfield Laundromat Simpsons

Honestly, some may have already guessed why I’d really want anything from the pink shirt episode. Leon Kompowsky would definitely prove to me that EA loves us as much as a corporate entity can.

Well those are my ideas for Valentine’s Day 2016 in TSTO. Probably too late to effect whatever is headed our way but you never know when an idea or two will find their way into the game. What do you think of the ideas?  Have any others you’d like to see? Excited for a brand new VD episode this year? Sound off in the comments and happy tapa-tapa-tapping.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. I would <3 to see something new for Krustyland (and bring back prior Valentines goodies for the theme park) please 🙂

  2. I really just want a bunch of new decorations. Cute heart trees or Pink trees, balloons like on Halloween, etc. And cute Little shops/restaurants. Or maybe a boat (lol like one of those stupid swan boats, or some random Pink boat with hearts on it that is called “the love boat” or something like that bahaha!) But mostly I just want more decorations right now 🙂

  3. BraveElfgirl1994

    Any speculations on when Valentines will come to our town?

  4. I only hope it’s a short event. It just seems wrong to be doing VD stuff in March. Also I’d like to see more skins for characters, so I’m all for the pink shirts. I don’t need any new characters.

  5. Those are all good ideas. I wish The Simpsons tapped out would do a storyline of the 90s grunge band Sadgasm that Homer was in when Margie went to college. That would be cool.

  6. I hope they have something to do with being able to send hearts/gifts to neighbours. Or a prize wheel (similar to what they did last year I think it was?) -And not really Valentines day related, but I would like Wendell as a character.. Or maybe a magic Valentines Day Genie or cupid who gives a random valentines day gift..

  7. I love your ideas! But there is still something missing… Since Maude Flanders didn’t make it into the Halloween event (which I still find to be odd…), now would be the perfect time to bring her back for a little mini quest between her and Ned! Come on, EA! We haven’t seen her since 2014! Even if she remains Premium, PLEASE bring her back! Curious to know what the team here on TSTO Addicts thinks of the idea 🙂

    • I like your idea. I missed out on getting Maude AKA (Ghost Maude) and
      wouldn’t mind having her as a character too. EA probably would make her premium. A quest with her and Ned would be cute and Rod and Todd would be happy 🙂

  8. Hey EA, Fill our Hearts, Man! ….Phil (our) Hart(s)man… Phil Hartman. Phartman (I took that to far), PHIL HARTMAN!! COME ON EA, you know what the fans will LOVE the most <3 <3 <3 (hope that was three hearts and not just < 3 (three times) :p

    Bleeding Gums Murphy and his faberge eggs can wait for Easter. Rabbi K for Passover, umm.. April Fools Prank-Monkey skin with Mrs. Vanderbilt … I'm getting anxious (can't you tell?)

  9. On the less romantic side of the holiday, I’d want Booberella to be reoffered since she wasn’t last Halloween, and some of the random strip clubs from the searching montage from the Season 01 Princess Kashmir episode

  10. Maybe Zelda and the Casa Nova Apartments for some Grampa Lovin!

  11. Just give me things from the first 10 to 12 seasons. And please figure out a way to include Lionel Hutz and Troy McLure. Make it a charity event where all proceeds go to a Phil Hartman approved charity.

  12. sabrtriviachamp

    Gotta have a character/building combo of Bleeding Gums Murphy and the Jazzhole!

  13. I would really like to be able to give heart shaped donuts to my neighbours. ..maybe towards community prizes…oh and pink rivers would make me happy ♡

  14. sabrtriviachamp

    Gotta have a character/building combo of Bleeding Gums Murphy and the Jazzhole.

  15. Every time I see a “what a Wookie wants title” I think of that Christina Aguilera song but in parody form.

  16. I have some ideas. How about Julio and Grady with thier apartment. Or A Gentleman Nelson Skin like with his sweater and neat hair like from from Lisa’s Date With Density.

  17. I realized I’m getting to the point of wanting certain characters and events that I’ll try to twist them into Holiday themes.

    (Some of this I’ve said before)

    Itchy and Scratchy “Love and Hate” event with Lemonade on the porch and Bloody beating Hearts

    Cupids, Cherubs, God… (That’s a long shot)

    Sarah Wiggam and with the power of Love bring Loved ones from the dead like Mona Simpson and Bleeding Gums Murphy (For the Love of God… Wait I already mentioned God)

    Raphael running some weird buisness (kissing booth? Valintine Card shop or some other EA creation)

    Wendell (maybe he’s love sick? And contagious making everyone else “love sick” maybe some kind of EA created Cooties)

    Troy McClure Romantic Movie festival, or just have him Marry Selma again (and end it after the event) or just a wedding event (Movementarians cult wedding?)

    We’ll have to wait and see 🙂

  18. I second… or us it fourth the return of Kumiko, but freemium (or craftable), pls EA!
