In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
By Hawking’s chair and wowza! The 2016 TSTO SciFi Event has just begun and already there’s so much to wow a fuzzball. Stephen Hawking, black holes, multidimensional visitors, and lots of sciencey futuristic stuff to figure out where to put in our games. I’m loving this like a nerd in a space rock candy store but I know a lot of this new stuff might have you wondering just where the heck it all comes from. Well no fears inter-quantum dimensional guys and gals, that’s where this walking carpet earns his bread and butter (seriously, that’s all I’m paid in lol). For this dimension of origin stories, we’ll be looking at:
Mobile-Dome – Level 9 craftable
Simpson Hover Car – 3rd Act One Prize for 12,000 dark matter
Homer’s Dream House – Level 18 craftable
Robots, interdimensional travellers, science, different existential Springfields… you can’t make this stuff up and it’s all in our silly little game. No surprise a lot of this goodness comes our way from non-canon (which apparently now means multidimensional episodes about potential futures for our favorite yellow denizens of Springfield. Before I get rambling about all the thoughts this brings to my noggin, I’ll just say for this dimension of origin stories, we’ll be looking at “Future-Drama” (S16:E15). Once we’re passed the fact that this isn’t the Futurama cross-over episode (well… there’s one thing) we can set off to find some schtuff.
Frink invents a machine that can look into the future (eight years!) using the science of astrology. Bart and Lisa are teenagers and Marge and Homer are separated. You gotta watch it just for roid rage Milhouse who somehow finally landed dates with Lisa.
The first glimpse of the future includes visuals of the Mobile Dome. Basically a giant spacecraft garbage truck. I laugh watching it collect trash and fly off into the sky only to land right next door for the next collection.
Anyhoo… in the “future”, Marge left Homer when he blew all their money on an underwater house. We first see it when Bart goes to ask his dad for advice about women. It’s pretty clear Homer is clueless but nevermind that, fish are stealing his lawn furniture. Now his annoying neighbors are stupid flounders lol.
Bart and Homer go to find new lady friends after the requisite 3 hour decompression. They hit the town in Homer’s hover car. It doesn’t drive very well because Homer bought the first prototype. Oh impulsive Homer… how I love thee.
It’s here that we see Bart and Homer go through a quantum tunnel (basically a way to flash through solid objects) and acquire one Bender Bending Rodriguez in their town. Bender is ready to be best friends with the duo but Homer just calls him a loser and tosses him out of the car.
All of Springfield is super futuristic but Moe’s looks like the normal dump we’re used to.
Lots of goodness including a couple more shots of Homer’s dream house all jazzed up and misspelt for a high school graduation party and Homer and Marge reuiniting under the see romantically lit by jellyfish.
It’s also worth mentioning that Bart uses the hovercar to keep Lisa from settling for Milhouse.
The moral of the story… noone’s gay for Moleman. What do you think of the prize and craftable? Do you like the “future” episodes? Hoping for a miracle that brings Bender into TSTO? Sound off in the comments and here’s hoping none of us are sucked into an event horizon while playing this event. Quantum tunnels sound dangerous.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
