We’re talkin’ softball…
From Maine to San Diego.
Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey’s grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.
We’re talkin’ Homer… Ozzie and the Straw.
Baseball! Is there anything more glorious than the game of baseball? (Don’t answer that if you’re going to say no…)
The Marge at the Bat update combines two fun baseball episodes of The Simpsons…”Homer at the Bat” and “Money Bart”. I feel like it’s no coincidence that those are two episodes we’ve been talking about around here lately. (For those who’ve missed it, Safi’s been talking a lot about Baseball on his Monday Morning Math Posts)
But, leave it to EA though to mess up an update about Baseball, with zero new content. Kind of like MLB is messing up the game itself these days with all these stupid new “rules”…but I digress. (hey look, I can be Cranky too 😂)
Anywho, the one thing Marge at the Bat has, that EA didn’t mess up, is a fun questline. The questline is pretty amusing for those that follow baseball, so let’s get to it…
Update: It appears we have our first bug of the new content. Part 1 of the questline is supposed to give you Aristotle (full character) if you don’t already have him, however, it’s not. And you need Aristotle to complete part 1 of the questline (can’t send Burns without him as it’s a joint task). So quite a few players are stuck right away on part 1.
No workaround at the moment, have to wait for it to be patched. You can try to contact EA and see if Customer Support can add him to your inventory, otherwise, we just have to be patient.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So it’s 10am here on the East Coast of the US and that means Marge at the Bat is now live in our games.
As I mentioned a few times, it appears there is no new content with this one. It’s an 8 part questline (that will take approx 32hrs to complete) and a bunch of returning content (some for Free, some for donuts).
You’ll have two weeks to complete the questline and purchase items you’re eyeing, as this content is slated to leave our games on April 24th.
Please note, at the time of this post going live the content is NOT live in the game. It will not go live until 10a ET (1400 UTC) on April 10th)
So as I wrote about yesterday, an update hit the files titled “Marge at the Bat”. Upon first glance, this looked like a pretty standard mini-event. Two weeks of content, and not much else. However, as I’ve dug deeper into this I’m not quite sure what to make of it….
