Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Who’s ready to finally get those gosh dang Van Houtens out of their lives?! Act 4 is finally here, the final Van Houten Act, almost time to kick this event to the curb.
Remember, this is the FINAL Act of Van Houtens. So this, and all other Acts, will leave our games on September 16th (next Wednesday). So finish up all the prize tracks before they’re gone for good!
Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary…
Jimbo: Hey, Milhouse. What’s your hat size? I wanna get you a cap just like mine.
Milhouse: Why don’t you just give me yours?
Jimbo: That’s a great idea! This is gonna be your best birthday party this week!
Bart: Unbelievable. Milhouse is friends with Jimbo now? Every time I try to make him uncool, he ends up even cooler.
Database: Excuse me, Superfriend, if you’re done monologuing, it’s your turn to roll the dodecahedron.
Bart: *sigh* Okay here goes.
Database: Gack! That’s the icosahedron! Bart, get your head in the game!
Bart: Look, the only reason I agreed to play Dungheaps and Doofuses with you guys is because you’re the only ones left who can’t get into Milhouse’s dumb birthday parties.
Database: Actually, we hacked the app and acquired a reservation to tonight’s late seating.
Bart: Of course you did.
This triggers the Act 4 questline, The Van Houten Curse, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Bart and Database, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (155). The Van Houten Curse is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
Here’s the Act 4 Synopsis from EA:
Bart has resigned himself to the fact that he cannot make Milhouse uncool no matter what he does and
accepts his new role as the family dork and school nerd. Meanwhile, Milhouse invites Lisa on a date with his Nana, who his dad recently flew in from Italy. When Milhouse ends up spending more time with his Nana than Lisa during their date, Lisa breaks up with Milhouse.
A devastated Milhouse seeks his Nana for reassurance, but Nana then explains that all Van Houtens experience a brief surge of popularity in their youth, which never returns. Meanwhile, the Milhouse/Lisa breakup news has spread, which sets off a chain reaction resulting in both Milhouse and Lisa no longer being cool, and everything goes back to normal.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into The Van Houten Curse questline, which is what the Act 4 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 4 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 4…
