Note From Alissa: I’m not going to to a Should I Buy on the Apes Billboard. It’s another Billboard for Springfield (does what all the other Sci-Fi Billboards Do), 15 donuts…0.25% bonus on all cash and XP. It’s a very LOW bonus for the donuts spent..but if you like it get it. It’s all about how you’ll decoration your Springfield 🙂
Now onto Wookiee’s awesome WDTCF!
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! Act Three of the 2016 TSTO SciFi Event has arrived and once again there’s even more new stuff to add to Stephen Hawking, black holes, multidimensional visitors, and lots of sciencey futuristic stuff to figure out where to put in our games. 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:
Give Apes the Vote Billboard – premium for donuts
Newfangled Kwik-E-Mart – 4th Act Two Prize for 18,700 chronons
For this dimension of origin stories, we’ll be looking at “Future-Drama” (S16:E15) again. I covered this episode in the WDTCF for the Mobile Dome, Simpson Hover Car & Homer’s Dream House but had to hold off on these items since they were coming later than Act One. Long and short is that Frink invents a machine that can look into the future (eight years!) using the science of astrology. Bart and Lisa see themselves as teenagers and hilarity ensues.
You already know the hover car comes from this episode but I really had to bite my tongue in the first post to abstain from pointing out that the Give Apes the Vote Billboard is passed as Bart and Homer head to Moe’s. It’s one of my favorite gags from future Simpsons episodes.
I can’t help but think of this image a buddy sent me in response to the current political climate in the US.
The apes have my vote. Truly, this all just makes me nostalgic for all the times Planet of the Apes has appeared in the Best. Show. Ever. Here’s two instances.
That second image bears directly on another item in this event, RoboBurns. Maybe the EA designers love POA as much as me? Maybe they also love Futurama since Bender is in this episode or perhaps it’s just a love of Günter and/or the episode where Farnsworth debates creaturism and Amy wears marmoset pajamas. Phew… I’m off on a tangent. Back to the episode. The future is newfangled and no surprise, the futuristic Kwik-E-Mart appears there.
Bart works there to impress Jenda. Poor future Bart, I’m sure his Mooch self doesn’t fondly think of this building.
I don’t know about predicting futures using astrological signs especially since there’s apparently a thirteenth sign called Ophiuchus that throws it all off but according to the interwebs, since I’m a Taurus, in the Year 2024, under the influence of the Dragon, Wookiee will enjoy a wonderful year in which his financial position will improve dramatically. Luck will bring many advantages, and the few problems he will face are resolved with ease. 2024 is a year of learning and development. He will be less interested in material possessions, and much more concerned with spiritual analysis or philosophy. It is a year to develop his mind. So there you go… my eight year future according to Frink science. If we’re still communicating in some way, maybe I’ll let you know if it came true as random predictions easily do. Too bad the future wasn’t so bright for polar bears or Frink.
What do you think of the items? By the billboard? Earn the K-E-M? Do you like the “future” episodes? Wishing we’d seen more Futurama in this event? 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!
