Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Dusting off an oldie but a goodie here at Addicts, the What We Want in TSTO column! Of course, this was originated by the one, the only, Wookiee…and entitled What A Wookiee Wants (WAWW). But with Wook’s schedule being what it is, I thought it was finally time to get a female Addict’s perspective on this. So I’m bringing you What The Addicts Want…
So, tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day! Leprechauns, Green Beer, hijinx and more! Tomorrow, assuming EA stays on its regular schedule, we’re also expecting a mini-event update to hit our pocket-sized towns. So what better topic for my first What The Addicts Want post than St. Patrick’s Day! So let’s take a look!
“I, Joseph Fitzgerald O’Malley Fitzpatrick O’Donnell the Edge Quimby, welcome you to Springfield’s first booze-free St. Patrick’s Day!”
So we’ve already had a couple of TSTO St. Patrick’s Days in our pocket-sized towns since TSTO first started in 2012. Those events brought in loads of fun content, and you can check it out on these posts: St. Pats 2014; St. Pat’s 2018. But this is about what we want in a NEW event…so let’s explore St. Pat’s content yet to hit our games. And everything on my wish list this year revolves around 1 episode yet to be explored in TSTO…
“Sex, Pies, and Idiot Scrapes” S20, E1
“This was such a pleasant St. Patrick’s Day ’til the Irish people showed up.”
Ok, so the first thing I’d love to see is the dang green rivers return to Springfield! They’ve made an appearance a few times in the past and it’s high time they bring them back! Come on EA, the programming is already there…you just have to flip a switch!
Now keeping with the mini-event theme…we’d need 5 prizes and at least 1 premium combo.
For the premium combo, I’d love to see Wolf the Bounty Hunter and Bail Bonds, think of all the fun joint tasks Wolf can have with SSB and Snake!
Prize Track wise…the main prize (prize 5) should be Patrick Farrelly…the proud Irishman who owns the erotic bakery where Marge becomes a baker:
He likely won’t be voiced, but I would giggle hysterically it if he said “For as long as there’s been baking, there’s been erotic baking”.
Also on the prize track should be Au Naturel, Patrick’s Shop:
The St. Patrick’s Day themed podium for Quimby to give a speech:
Which should also come with the Angry St. Patrick’s Day Crowd to give Quimby the what for:
Also on the prize track, I’d love to see the Irish Step Dancers…dancing around while keeping their arms perfectly still:
And rounding out the prize track, I’d love to get the Small Irish Family Float:
Of course, there are still loads of other great items that can be added to the store from this episode…as premium content or cash decorations.
I totally would pay donuts for the Irish Boy Most Resembling a Potato float:
And I’d shell out donuts for the Good Neighbor’s Bounty Hunters Building:
And as a few cash offerings I’d like to see the Paddy Wagon:
And the Good Neighbor’s Billboard (yes, I know I’m not a huge fan of billboards..but this one makes me giggle):
And finally, I LOVE to see the return of mini-games with mini-events! For this one I’d love EA to do a Frogger style game with Homer and Ned dodging the cars:
Homer: Ned, I never thought I’d say this, but we make a great team.
Flanders: Us…a team? As the salad said to the soup “I’m all mixed up”
And that’s it my friends…my first crack at What the Addicts Want! Of course, this isn’t just about me, I want to hear from YOU! What would you like to see in a St. Patrick’s Day mini-event? Anything I missed? Thoughts about what I want to see? Of course, now that I talked about it, that pretty much guarantees we’ll get something totally random for the next update…like a Crossword puzzle update! Here’s hoping we first see an update tomorrow, and second a little green is added to the update!
