Hey EA… it’s been a while but WE still want things!

Hey there Addictereenos! So I’m texting with Alissa the other day and she’s all “hey Wook… you think you’d have time to do a What the Addicts Want post?” and I’m all “Sure thing boss.” I think if I’d known (or remembered from the last time) what I was getting in to, you might not be reading these words right now. I dredge through the site looking for the last post to use as an example and realize it’s been two years minus a week since we did one. TWO YEARS!!! The horror!

Why would the Wookiee be so remiss in compiling what people wanted? Well the answer became quite clear to me as I did just that. From January 2015 to now, wading through comments and writing down what people asked for, there’s words to describe my efforts that aren’t PG enough for here. Then I remind myself how much I love this community and just get through it. Jebus knows I’ve gone through tougher things than compiling a list. Long story short… truly, all of you really have some great ideas as evidenced by the last list and this one. If you’re interested in what I highlighted this time… click more.

So ugh and woo hoo and fart. Getting this all sorted for viewing was a pain in my fuzzy behind. I’m glad it’s done though. All of the ideas here come from the previous wish list post and other posts where I saw the suggestion and typed it down. I even included some of your ideas from various What a Wookiee Wants. By no means is this a perfect system (especially the cull from unrelated posts) but I do the best I can. If your idea got missed or written down wrong, I apologize but you can always comment on this post and add it again. Trust me when I say this is a time and brain-intensive process so any failures are the author’s but I do the best I can. I’m more than willing to add your name to items if it was missed AND the addition is important to you.

As for EA… I sincerely hope you read posts like this because there are some boffo ideas here. Seriously, the awesome readers of this site hopefully make your lives much easier. If you’re not reading, than you’ll miss me say I wrote Santa to give you coal for pissing off so many people with the topic of religion during the holidays. Said coal might just be averted in the future by guaranteeing you’re on the NICE list next year, and helping others is the first step. Do unto others or something like that. Also, I have it on good authority that the jolly old nog hog is neighbors with the Krampus who is much more unforgiving. I saw a whole movie about it that renewed nightmares given to me by my grandmother. Please EA… for the sake of Christmas give us some of the list.

It should be said that items from previous wish lists have made it into the game. Some examples would be 02sb13 mentioned a Sci-Fi Event, Totbox had CHUM, Omar Smith had the group movement option, Paul O’Borne mentioned the Olympics, Marianne and babypatootie mentioned more land opposite the ocean, several mentioned a bunch of international flags, Sandra Shill had Dr. Marvin Monroe, Theron Zimmerman included the Lil Lisa Recycling Plant, RandomWest had Rancho Relaxo & Ling Bouvier, alunited1961 basically predicted the Superheroes events, Someone stole my burrito™ had cacti & boulders, JMLGG mentioned Shelbyville stuff, Enda Sheehan had Johnny Tightlips, bilbocatuzzi included Springfield Gorge, and chippyfan even prognosticated Stephen mother trucking Hawking. That’s a lot and I didn’t even mention everything like the monorail (alunited1961 and me say thank YOU EA) and Maggie. We’re like TSTO Nostradumbasses or something. Well, at least I am.

Anyhoo… I broke down the ideas by category again. You’ll see that a lot of folks had the same ideas, that we STILL want a lot of things and people are wonderfully creative. Just the list of characters blows my mind. Speaking of characters… it’s a new rule of mine not to ever put Troy McClure, Lionel Hutz, or Lyle Lanley on these lists any more. We get it… you want the characters of Phil Hartman and while I hold out hope someday it could happen even though the show runners have publicly announced the retirement of the characters in respect for Mr. Hartman, I don’t think we’re gonna get them and I’m sick of seeing them suggested. Obviously they were requested and I guess that’s enough to show the impact of Hartman’s comedic genius. We got a brief taste of Lyle during the Monorail 2015 and it hurt to see him for such a brief moment only to disappear into the ether. The other character excluded was Bleeding Gums Murphy. The Addicts voted him as the most desired character so once again, to avoid typing tons of names, I excluded him. If any of these are your one true wish… then do that in one hand and then poop in the other. Hopefully no one has a cow, man. If you’re mad, let’s agree to disagree or we could always play a game of  Dejarik holochess… Wookiee vs. you. Basically we sit down and then you agree to let me win.lylelanley_victory_pose_image_5To avoid further words in what is certainly a long post, let’s take a look at this January 2017 version of what the Addicts want:

NOTE: Just for fun, Alissa, Bunny, Pat and I went through and picked a few (no more than ten each) favorites which are indicated by BOLD. Alissa’s favorites are in BLUE, Bunny’s in PURPLE, Pat’s are in RED, and mine are GREEN      (I wanted Simpsons yellow but Alissa said it hurt her precious eyes. I still think she’s wrong but she’s the boss. I guess looking at this maybe she’s right or left or something like that. Mental note… women are always right except when they aren’t which is hardly ever according to Alissa). A tie between at least two of us is indicated by a COLOR COMBINATION. Agh… that’s like watching colorized Gilligan’s Island, isn’t it?

Dang it was hard for all of us to pick favorites. Surprisingly we came to a little consensus even not knowing what others picked. There are so many amazing ideas here and while it breaks my heart to know I missed a ton in the last two years, I’ll beg your indulgence.  If even just a few of these items make it into the game (especially the gameplay stuff), TSTO will be better for it.  Hope you enjoyed seeing what your fellow Addicts (and possibly you) wanted. Apologies it took so long to do another one of these dedicated posts (although Totbox did a character one January 2016) and I look forward to your thoughts and ideas. It’s obvious there is so much to keep this silly mobile game going. Sound off with your thoughts. Feel free to add anything you felt was missed below. I’d really be curious to see what folks’ favorite things were. Try picking just ten and see how you do. Take care, thanks for stopping by, and much love for being the classy people I know you to be.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Why has Troy McLure never been mentioned?? Or Lionel Hutz? I know they’ve avoided the Phil Hartman characters, but they were a huge part of the original Simpsons. And very special characters for some of us.
