TGIF – Just Roll With It For a Thrilling Life

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

First of all, I am going to apologize for NOT suffering the same “Lag-Tastic” problems that so many of you are facing with this update.  Unlike so many of you, who are unable to utilize the vast majority of the rides for Itchy and Scratchy Land, I am able to place and run all three of the major animated rides in my ISKLand, with no lag whatsoever.

I’ll wait...while you hate me.

I have no idea why I am not suffering…as I have a huge town…am bumping into the Item Limits, and should probably have a laggy, unfulfilling mess of lagging…But I don’t.

I think it is because, deep down, EA knows how much I love roller coasters. I love them…with all of my core. Coasters, in my estimation, are the greatest way to get a thrill that is needed to scare, exhilarate and forget your worries, like almost no other invention by modern man!

I love all kinds of coasters…including the new ones that use military grade catapults to launch you almost instantly to cruising speeds above 70 MPH.

Should I Spend Donuts on President Reagan and the Re-Education Center?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly 4th of July in Springfield, and that means it’s once again time for the hole in time and space to be ripped open and a new President to appear in town!  In the past, we’ve had Presidents from the 1700s, 1800s, early-mid 1900s appear…this time around we don’t have to flashback to far in the past.  As the President of the 1980s joins our Springfield’s…Ronald Reagan.

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab this past president because he’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 President Reagan and his Re-Education Center to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Jellybean loving President to your town…

Itchy and Scratchy Land Act III Prizes – Prize 1- The Zoominator

Before anyone else points out the fact that we already have a roller coaster in our ItchyScratchyKrustyLand (the Tooth Chipper), all of us who are roller coaster aficionados know that just like cowbell in a great rock song, you can’t have too much roller coaster!  And, this one is a Monster!

Besides pretty much being required to move through the questline for Act III…and once again, creating “Lag City” for a good number of players…it’s a pretty cool, ambitious and fun addition.

Let’s take a look at the details..shall we?
