Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s time for a little mystery in Springfield! The latest mini-event to hit our games has caused us to put on our investigative hats to see just who shot Mr. Burns. Of course a new mini-event in town means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight 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 Dave Shutton and the Springfield Shopper to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this reporting combo to your town…
Character(s): Dave Shutton
Building/Decoration: Springfield Shopper
Donut Cost: 185 Donuts
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores May 23rd
-Comes with a questline
-Helps with the Who Shot Mr. Burns mini-event.
-Finally, the Springfield Shopper is added to Springfield. It’s about time we had a newspaper in town
-Expensive for who he is/what he does
-Building animation is lame, lights turn on
-Springfield Shopper has a large footprint
It’s a toss-up honestly. It’s a character/building combo, but it is overpriced. This one is going to come down to if you want it get it, otherwise pass because of the price tag.
It’s really pricey for a rare character, not essential to the show. I’d pass.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I picked it up. It’s overpriced, but I’m a sucker for a character/building combo. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
