Friday Filler – When You’re Out of Ideas Offer Donuts

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

I’m not going to lie. This week almost did me in.  As Ringo Starr once screamed into a studio mic, “I’ve got blisters on my fingers!!!” (between Revolution No. 9 and Helter Skelter on the White Album). In fact, it is likely just blisters from juggling…and juggling…and juggling.

So when one of my true escapes from my “clown circus life” starts getting lazy, it really bums me up. TSTO/EA/Gracie is really dropping the ball in regards to content for this update…unless you are a new player…which I am not.

I hate whining at this point…as we should all just be happy the game is still around. But, come on… a dozen donuts instead of a Major Premium Character?
Have they lost their minds??????

Should I Spend Donuts On Teenage Smithers and the Malibu Stacy Fan Club?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

TSTO is back baby!  We’re FINALLY getting on, what feels like, a somewhat normal update schedule!  Praise Jebus! The theme of this multi-event?  Simpson Babies. Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Teenage Smithers and the Malibu Stacy Fan Club to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pretty in pink combo to your town…

Simpson Babies Week 3 Is Live!

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…

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 16 (The Final Four)

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.

Friday Filler – Dear EA…Meet Safi!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Yes…it has been a week to remember.  Wife got a new hip (I’m on CareGiver Mode)..I am almost done with the 2nd bathroom remodel (I’m also in builder/fixer/painter/plumber/carpenter mode), and TSTO/EA continues to keep feeding us characters and content. Two of those make me happy…

I know some of you love this update (CJBrown, you know who you are…). But, I guess I have to just “go with the flow…and throw in the towel” as it comes to anything resembling the Time Space Continuum.

And man…. EA…have you met Safi??  He’s the one who has been doing Bracket Battles to bring us ideas of the most anticipated and coveted characters and content in the game. In short…he is doing YOUR JOB…but you are apparently ignoring him.  But, I’ll get to that.

Simpson Babies Week 2 Is Live!

IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUE WITH YOUR GAME CRASHING DO NOT COMMENT ON THIS POST ABOUT IT!  INSTEAD, GO TO THIS POST FOR INFORMATION.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Simpsons Babies Week 2 is Live!

Things kick off for week 2 with some dialogue between Lisa, Bart, Baby Homer and Baby Marge…

Lisa: This Youthenizer is a bit unusual. It has over a thousand moving parts, yet it’s carved from a single block of solid mammoth ivory. Also, is Dad alive?
Bart: He’s fine. He filled the baby bathtub with beer and he was relaxing with his head in it.
Baby Homer: I’m sparkling clean from the face up.
Lisa: Uhm, Dad? Could you maybe put some clothes on?
Baby Homer: No chance, lady. I’m unselfconsciously unashamed of my woo-woo and my boo-boo.
Baby Marge: Oooh, who’s this handsome young man? And I do mean young. And I sort of mean handsome.
Lisa: Mom, that’s Homer!
Baby Marge: Who?
Lisa: Your husband? He fathered your children?
BabyMarge : Babies don’t know where babies come from, Lisa. I don’t even know a hoo-hoo from a woo-woo. So get off my boo-boo!

This triggers the week 2 questline, A Whiff of Ziff , and is followed by a 4hr tasks for Homer and Lisa., as well as a task to collect Week 2 Currency (50).  A Whiff of Ziff is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 2 prizes.
