Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Can you believe the 600th episode of The Simpsons is airing this Sunday?! 600 episodes! Wow!
And it’s only appropriate that the 600th episode of the best.show.ever. work out to be the 27th Treehouse of Horrors! To celebrate the upcoming episode EA’s released a fun little episode tie-in to get us in the THOH mood! (as if the update wasn’t doing that already..)
So let’s break down the details of this tiny tie-in….
Note: Dialogue spoilers below, so if you don’t want to know don’t click below. However, I will tell you you’ll need Bart, Milhouse & Martin free to complete the main questline…
When you start up your game you’ll be greeted with a questline waiting for you from Bart. …
Glucose Games Pt. 1
Milhouse: These fancy houses give out the most candy! Rich people are so stupid.
Bart: Tell me about it. I’m already filling up my second pillowcase.
Milhouse: That’s not fair! I’m working with this tiny plastic pumpkin! Same one I use as a lunchbox off season.
Martin: Might I suggest we share candy? Each of us with the exact same amount of milk chocolate, dark chocolate and of course, nougat.
Bart: Why don’t you two compete in a test of endurance, winner take all? You know, like they did in the old days.
Make Milhouse and Martin Race Across the School Gym- 6s, Earns $70, 2xp (requires BOTH Milhouse and Martin to be free)
Milhouse: I would have won if I didn’t get scared by my reflection in that window.
Martin: And had it not been for an unscheduled asthma attack, I would have won the candy. My lungs have cursed me again.
Bart: And yet, here we are in a double disqualification land — population, you two losers. We’re going to need to expand the scope of these games. I’m thinking teams and districts…and wildly elaborate CG costumes!
Glucose Games Pt. 2
Bart: Okay gentleman, you’ve got your teams. The next competition is a contest of wits.
Martin: Finally, a venue where my true talents can shine!
Ralph: Yay, I’m included-ed!
Bart: One of these old gas cans contains a clue to a secret stash of candy. The other…is full of angry bees! Choose wisely!
Ralph: I choose bees!
Make Martin Choose Wisely for His Team- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Make Milhouse Choose Wisely for His Team- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Glucose Games Pt. 3
Milhouse: It was pretty dirty to put angry bees behind both choices.
Bart: Dirty but hilarious. And doesn’t that excuse everything? You ready for the test of strength?
Nelson: Add my team to the list. And there better not be any funny stuff this time or else!
Bart: Right. Just give me one minute to fix stuff so we don’t have to find out what the “or else” is.
Make Bart Ensure Fairness in the Games- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Glucose Games Pt. 4
Milhouse: Where did all these kids come from?
Bart: Even those rich neighborhood kids have teams. As long as they ante up the candy, I got no problem. More to win.
Milhouse: How are you going to keep track of so much candy?
Bart: I got a system. I eat the good ones and let the gross or healthy ones go into the pot.
Make Bart Try to Manage the Chaos- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Bart: The candy is gone! Those rich neighborhood kids too it all! Let’s hit that neighborhood and get our candy back!
Martin: But what if they retaliate and we end up in a never-ending cycle of violence?
Bart: It’s just a bunch of kids fighting over something to eat. That’s what Halloween is all about. Read the Bible.
At this point you’ll unlock the prize…
A little sign for your Springfield. Nothing spectacular, but a nice fit in with the upcoming THOH epsiode!
Also, with this update is a premium item for purchase…
