Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
This time around we’re being offered Libido, a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around. While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Libido, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
So what is the deal? When you can find it in the Currency Tab of your Store (also by hitting Get More)…
Basically, spend $9.99 on a Tray of 132 donuts and you get the Libido character.
And yes, for those outside of the US I know my price is probably lower than yours. EA only charges 9.99 USD for this package…anything over that that you are currently paying goes to Google/Apple/Amazon for Tax and Duty etc. EA only collects the 9.99.
So, personally, I’m glad EA went back to the $9.99 price point for these (the last one was $19.99), and happy it’s a character.
Not a huge fan of the character itself, but happy to see they’re back to what should (in theory) work.
So here’s a breakdown on Libido…

Happy Happy Boy Boy Pt. 1
Libido: I’m free! Free to dance like a comic book villain on a staircase!
Lisa: No! This is all wrong! You shouldn’t be released until we’re sixteen! Fourteen if we actually live in Kentucky.
Libido: It’s too late now, sister! And there’s no way I’m going back in your mind with Honesty, Jealousy, and Conscience. Those three never stop yapping.
Lisa: Conscience I understand but you’ve gotta go back in! At least get off that staircase!
Make Libido Get Imprisoned- 4hrs
Lisa: I could be wrong about this but I’m guessing the best thing would be to keep you active. How about we go to the park and play chess?
Libido: Sure… or we could go to the beach and chase boys!
Lisa: Oh boy, this is gonna be a long quest…
Happy Happy Boy Boy Pt. 2
Lisa: I’ll just have to chaperone you. What is it you’d like to do?
Libido: Let’s go to a movie!
Lisa: I guess two hours in the dark with you wouldn’t be the worst thing. Okay, what do you want to see?
Libido: Umm, how about that Malibu Stacy movie?
Lisa: Really? I’ve actually been wanting to see that.
Libido: Great. I heard there’s a great kissing scene!
Lisa: Gross. I’ll be buying popcorn during that.
Libido: Extra butter for me!
Make Libido Go See a Movie- 4hrs
Make Lisa Chaperone- 4hrs
Libido: I’ll buy the tickets, you go read the rating restriction on the McBain movie poster.
Lisa: Ooh, it’s a long one.
Libido: Two tickets, please.
Raphael: For which movie?
Libido: “Fifty Shades of McBain.”
Raphael: Whoa whoa, you look too young to be seeing a movie like that.
Libido: Well you see, I’m a little… special.
Raphael: Do tell.
Libido: I have a rare disease that makes me age backwards. They made a movie about it. But I was too young to see it. I mean, too OLD.
Raphael: I’m gonna need to see some ID.
Libido: I’m very contagious. Best we just go on in and keep our distance.
Raphael: Oh yeah, I wouldn’t want a disease that might make me look younger. Go on in. I hate running the projector for an empty theater.
Happy Happy Boy Boy Pt. 3
Lisa: I’m not sure what bothers me more. The fact that you took me to a McBain movie or that you were so into it.
Libido: How many people do you think he killed in that movie?! I lost count because I started counting all the abs in the locker room scene instead.
Lisa: Okay, so we saw your violent, sexist film. Can we go back home now?
Libido: That was just the appetizer. Let’s chase boys!
Lisa: No! Need I remind you we are only eight years old.
Libido: You may be eight, but I’ve been aging in dog years inside your brain. It’s time to party!
Lisa: Okay, okay, since you’re going to do it anyway, let me think for a moment. What boy would be desperate enough to give Libido the attention she wants but awkward enough so it didn’t lead anywhere…

Make Libido Go to Milhouse’s House- 4hrs
Happy Happy Boy Boy Pt. 4
Milhouse: Hi, Lisa. Who’s your new friend?
Lisa: This is Libido. She’s a part of my subconscious that somehow escaped and now she’s dragging me all around town looking for unsuspecting boys to kiss.
Milhouse : Classic. Wait… *gasp* I’m an unsuspecting boy!
Libido: *grabs Milhouse* Don’t say another word! Ever!

Milhouse: Now that we’re boyfriend and girlfriend, Libido, you wanna stay for dinner and see where the night takes us…? *massive eyebrow wiggle*
Libido: Actually, I think I need to buckle down and start studying more. It’s never too early to start preparing for college.
Lisa: Your cage awaits, milady.
Make Libido Study for College- 4hrs
Make Milhouse Start Setting the Dinner Table- 4hrs
That’s pretty much it on Libido. Not as bad as one might think, but still just an eh pickup. While I haven’t made my final decision, I likely won’t be picking it up.
