Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Simpsons Babies Week 3 is Live!
Things kick off for week 3 with some dialogue between CBG, Lisa, and Bart…
CBG: Interesting. Various characters are reverse-aging into babies, much as in classic Futurama episode 4ACV09. Although in that story the device was called a “Youth-a-sizer”, not a “Youthenizer”, so this is very, very different.
Lisa: Instead of nitpicking sarcastically, why don’t you help for once?
Bart: Yeah! Like, tell us how superheroes would un-reverse the aging process.
CBG: Well, let’s see. In the movie Superman, the hero of the same name reversed Earth’s rotation, causing time to run backwards. However, that’s the third stupidest thing in history, behind two things Aquaman did that are too embarrassing to discuss.
This triggers the week 3 questline, The Sleuthenizer, and is followed by a 4hr tasks for Bart and Lisa., as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50). The Sleuthenizer is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…
Here’s EA’s synopsis for Act 3/Week 3:
Bart and Lisa turn to the remaining adults in Springfield to look for help. Comic Book Guy is basically useless, so they move on to Frink, who invited the Youthenizer in the first place. While examining the Youthenizer, Frink accidently activates it, turning him to a baby too!
Frustrated that everyone she tries to get to help has been turned to a baby, Lisa has no one left to turn to. In that moment of desperation, the spirit of Bleeding Gums Murphy appears to her in cloud form to offer her words of encouragement. Looking for inspiration, Lisa starts playing her saxophone. In their story to Maggie, Baby Bart and Baby Lisa get on their bikes and ride past the local teen center. Bart has an idea that maybe they can get one of the teens there to help out since teens are good with tech. They find a teenaged Smithers, who was clipped by a Youthenizer, receiving only a partial blast. While examining the Youthenizer, Teenage Smithers recognizes the device as the same one that Mr. Burns was using the previous week and that caused Smithers to turn teen when it went off. Turns out, Mr. Burns was behind the Youthenizer the
whole time. They decide to go to the power plant to confront Mr. Burns, but when Lisa tries to turn on some music for the ride, she accidentally activates the Youthenizer and, you guessed it, gets turned into a baby.
As I stated above, you’ll basically go right into The Sleuthenizer questline, which is what the week 3 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Week 3 (Act 3) prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Week 3/Act 3….
REMINDER: DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 3:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
Dewey Largo NEW this week (Will earn PREMIUM rate)
Baby Moe (Premium)
Baby Barney (Premium)
Teenage Smithers (Premium)
Weel 1 Prizes/Week 2 Prizes
These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track. You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes. So keep going with Week 1 if you haven’t yet finished it.
While a bulk of the event currency earning characters are needed for week 3, you can still send Milhouse (and Baby Frink) to earn week 1 currency if you haven’t finished that track yet. You can send Flanders and Baby Burns to earn Week 2 Currency if you haven’t finished that track yet. As those characters will not be used for Week 3
Here’s what’s included today:
Teenage Smithers and Malibu Stacy Fan Club- 150 Donuts. Per my notes from EA, this will earn event currency for Act 3/Week 3 (and only week 3/act 3). FULL character, not a costume. Leaves stores August 28th.
No new returning content was added with Week 3. However, all returning content that hit our games with Week 1 is still available this week.
And that’s it my friends. The details of week three of the Simpsons Babies Event.
