Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Episode tie-ins are back! EA wasted no time in bringing us some new content, and this time it’s an episode tie-in for this Sunday’s upcoming “22 for 30″ episode of The Simpsons. And of course all new update (no matter how small) means premium content in our stores to spend those sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Anger Watkins and the ESBN Sports Desk to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bottle throwing broadcaster to your Springfield…
Decoration/Building: ESBN Sports Desk
Character: Anger Watkins
Donut Price: 110 Dounts
Earns: 3% bonus on all cash and XP (desk)
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Leaves Stores March 15th
-Low donut price for character/item combo
-Full character, earns 50% more on all cash and XP
-Comes with a questline
-Hilarious animated tasks, one of which will use the Sports desk
-One off character for The Simpsons (although he appears to be modeled after ESPN personality Stephen A Smith)
Premium players, who likely already own everyone else, anytime there’s a character building/item (that offers a bonus %) combo for 100-110 donuts you know I always tell you to grab it. That’s a fantastic price for a character combo, and in this case the desk comes with a sweet 3% bonus, that you shouldn’t have to think twice about it. Grab him.
Yes, this is a great price for the combo. HOWEVER, with this update EA has brought back many other characters and offered rebates on them. So personally, if you don’t already have them, I’d spend donuts on Mrs. Bouvier and/or Coach K first. As those combos will put you at 95 donuts and 100 donuts (after the rebates), which is an even better price to pay for combos…especially ones where the characters are recurring Simpsons characters.
If you already have those, than this is a good buy.
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 as a premium player, I’ve picked this combo up. No idea where I’m going to put the desk yet, but I’ve got the combo. Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores next week. So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)
