Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a “Caption This!” moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by HondoRiley…

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at you never know when yours might be next!

The Sounds of TSTO: Rise of the Robots

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Springfield Showoff: Rise of the Robots

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small, and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

The End is Near for Rise of the Robots…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Rise of the Robots Event Ends TOMORROW May 12th. 

Time to put all that robotic destruction to an end and move onto some other catastrophe in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Where Did THAT Come From- Pos-i-bots, Bestimus Mucho, Carnage Destructicus, and the Human Foosball Table

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Ok, guys, this is THE big one. This is the WDTCF post that breaks down everything else from this event! Yes, the vast majority of items from the Rise of the Robots event come from two main episodes.  With one episode having items from Acts 1 and 2, and the other having items from Acts 3 and 4. We already covered the items that come from “I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot”And now that we’re well into Act 4, it’s time to cover the items from the other main episode…”Treehouse of Horror XIX”.  Now that all of the items have arrived in our games it’s time to take a look at this transformer halloween episode to see just where the Flanders Car Pos-i-bot, Simpson Car Pos-i-bot, Bestimus Mucho, ATM Pos-i-bot, Hot Dog Cooker Bot, Squishee Machine Bot, Carnage Destructicus, and Human Foosball Table all come from!

So let’s get started this week by talking about a classic 1960’s song, “It’s Not Unusual”.
