It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread! So, let’s get the conversation going! Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long. This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!
Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING. Just no Add me requests…those should go here. We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.
So, here is your Open Thread…..
No new Simpsons this week, but don’t worry they’ll be back next week!
Lots of things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:
Another all-new episode of Addicts Live aired yesterday! Safi and I were back to give our quick thoughts/reactions to Act 3 of Rise of the Robots. You can check the episode out here.
For those curious, Act 4 is slated to hit on Tuesday (May 4th) at 11am ET.
The Little Addicts were back this week with a brand new adventure! You can check out the adventure here, and today we’re on a brand new adventure..and if you watched Addicts Live you’ll know we’ll be on a little Adventure all week! Be sure you check out the new video tomorrow! 🙂
How’s your Springfield design coming? What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post) And as a heads up…we’ll be announcing the next Showoff this week (based on Rise of the Robots of course), so that’ll give you a little extra prep time!
Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?
So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well) Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!
Welcome to Addicts Live! We hope you enjoy this week’s episode, as much as we enjoyed putting it together…
The Addicts Crew is back again with an all-new, episode of Addicts Live! Join Alissa and Safi as we give our quick reactions to Act 3 of the Rise of the Robots event! Hear our thoughts on what was great on the prize track and what EA could have done better, and why we think this is the best Act of the event. And as an added bonus, you’ll hear Alissa’s crazy theories about EA, the writers, and the bizarre premium combos! You don’t want to miss the fun, so join us for this quick reactions episode!
No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you…I have reverted the site back to the trusty tried and true version of TSTO Addicts we’ve all enjoyed for the last (nearly) 8 years.
First, I’ve been growing increasingly frustrated with the new theme. There were loads of things, visually, we weren’t able to do or have appeared the way we wanted them to appear.
Second, you guys OVERWHELMINGLY voted to change back. It wasn’t even close…
And the whole reason I switched in the first place was because of complaints we were getting about the mobile version of the site. So if you guys are good, I’m good.
And third, issues that we thought were issues with the theme (ie comment issues, likes not showing etc) were in fact NOT issues with the theme. They’re issues with WordPress and would exist no matter which site version we use.
So, give all of that, I’d rather go back to tried and true.
The Robots are coming, the Robots are coming! Get ready for a dystopian Springfield, as the robots try to take over! Can they be stopped? It’s up to you to save Springfield in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Rise of the Robots!
For the third Act of this event, two new premium characters arrived in Springfield. One, Brenda, helps to earn event currency while the other, Cyborg Willie, arrived via a Gil “deal” and does not earn event currency. Despite their differing currency earning potential, they both come with short, fun, questlines.
So let’s take a look at the questlines for both Brenda and Cyborg Willie, here’s the full dialogue for Compile Process Love and How is a Cyborg Like a Scot?…
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?
For this post, we’re going to cover the “quick-blip” items that hit our pocket-sized towns during Act 3 of the Rise of the Robots Event. Even though they’re all from different episodes, they’re all just a quick blip in the world of The Simpsons. So, it’s time to examine where The Robotics Lab, Brenda, Thai Food Factory, Cyborg Willie, and Killy come from…hope you didn’t blink or you might’ve missed it!
It’s that time of the event…time for another fun and exciting prize post! Yes, I know they’re your favorite, don’t even try to deny it. Ok, you can deny it. I think we probably feel the same way about these….but they still must be done! Otherwise, what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now? Act 3 of the Rise of the Robots event consists of 1 new building, 3 new decorations, and one new character.
So let’s take a look at the prizes on the Act 3 Prize Track: The Flanders Car Pos-i-bot, Simpson Car Pos-i-Bot, Springfield Robotics Lab, and Giant Buzz Cola Can (Bestimus Mucho (a full character) we’ll break down in another post)
