Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ah Autumn…leaves are falling, that crispness in the air has arrived and there’s a brand new season of TV on! Ok so it’s fall, and it still feels completely like summer (at least here in New Jersey) BUT…the last part is true. There’s a whole new season of TV shows…and the Simpsons Season 28 starts this Sunday! To celebrate the Season Premiere EA has launched a fun Episode Tie-In Mini Event in our games..something to gear us up for Sunday. So bust open those wallets, because there’s a store full of premiums just waiting for you!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Retro Lard Lad and Laird Ladd to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pink donut shop to your Springfield…
Building/Decoration: Retro Lard Lad
Character: Laird Ladd
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp
Conform-O-Meter: Gluttony +20
Leaves stores October 4th
-Premium character (earns 50% more on all cash and XP) with a full set of tasks and questline.
-Laird will help earn more for the prize track. (Premium rate 2x)
-Retro Lard Lad is a neat and unique looking building, adds a fun pop of color
-120 donuts is a decent price for a character/building combo
-Very short questline, only 3 parts.
-Retro Lard Lad is fairly large in size..and really how many Donut Shops does 1 Springfield need?
I think this is a good premium buy. 120 donuts is an ok price to pay for a character/building combo. He has some fun tasks and Retro Lard Lad looks cool. So Premium players I think you should pick this one up…
On the Freemium end of things, this is going to be one of those if you like it grab it. It’s an ok price, but it’s not at a must buy price. And Halloween will be coming up very soon. So evaluate how many donuts you have and if you really like this combo If you like it and still have a decent stash for Halloween grab it, otherwise pass and save those donuts for Halloween….
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do. And I can tell you I already own it. I got it as soon as it hit the store…I really liked it and thought it was a decent price for the combo. Of course whatever you decide just remember this is limited time and will be leaving our games very soon (October 4th). So if you’re thinking about grabbing it, do it very soon before it’s gone for good!
