Gotta love Google Translate. Just because I know most of us (including myself) don’t speak Russian let alone read their language… it just says “Hello my friends. How are you doing?” But why Russian? Stick with me folks, it’ll make sense soon enough.
So the last Episode Tie-In gave us the Fit Milhouse™ skin and you may have heard there are bonus tasks if you also owned Lugash and his Gym. While this post is by no means a should I buy (you can find that here), I thought I’d step away from 4th of July and take the time to let you know some more info about this Russian Gymnastics teacher and where exactly he comes from.
Oh Level 40… how thankful I am for the distraction from my Easter prize hunting mania. Sure you stole Ralphie away from some valuable egg hunting, but I’ll forgive you for bringing a building I’ve been wanting with all it’s fun and puns. Of course, that means for this WDTCF, I’ll be going over the Ah, Fudge! Factory.
So you may have wondered why the heck an Irish Pub from Ireland is in Springfield now. Well, first off, because EA can really do whatever makes them happy (Exhibit A: Abraham Lincoln) but really, there’s more to it than that. It make sense. It’s St. Paddy’s day in Springfield and nothing really celebrates a Catholic Saint who rid the Emerald Isle of non-existent snakes than the indulgence of green beer and spirits in an authentic Irish pub. Nothing more “authentic” than a pub actually from Ireland… just saying.
How’s everyone on this foine day? Figured it’s only appropriate to try out a little Gaelic since we finally got some St. Patrick’s Day in our towns. Green water, the return of the coveted pub and wishing well and of course, the new addition of the Sham Rock Café and Yupprechaun. I must admit, with the delay of this event, I was afraid we wouldn’t see anything new and I’m so happy my fears were wrong. I do wish it wasn’t for 120 donuts but nothing I can do about that. I snatched it up immediately but it was an easy decision since I had the old stuff, although I think EA is mocking me since I said I preferred the green and orange versions previously. This new building-character combo is a nice surprise.
A few weeks ago we asked you all to participate in a detailed reader survey, where we wanted to know everything about YOU. Then last week we revealed the results during our blogiversary week. However, while we revealed almost all of the results we did not share the complete results of YOUR favorite Premium purchases. Instead we only shared the best and worst in the different categories. So we thought it would be fun to share the full results in each category because who better then to help you make a decision about what to spend donuts on, then your fellow tappers?
So day let’s start off by breaking down YOUR choices for the Best and Worst Premium Character & Building Combos…
