It’s snowing in our pocket-size Springfields! Yes that magical time of the year when our towns are blanketed with snow and there are LOADS of items from Winters past to spend those sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 The Best Snowman Ever, Gingerbread Mansion, Murderhorn, Snow Monster, Reindeer, Fancy Igloo, Duff Beer Tree, Ice God, Holiday Totem Pole, Bonestorm Santa, Annual Gift Man, Candy Kevin, Kearney’s Other Son, Duff Center Arena, Giant Outdoor Fireplace, Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers (and Babysitter Bandit), Elf Home, Egg Nog Bar, Festive Trashcan Fire or the Exotic Petting Zoo (and accessories) to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…
Whaaaaaazuuuuuuup! Do you remember that obnoxious advertising campaign? If not, Mytube has them I’m sure. They were beer commercials. Funny at first and then mildly irritating and then searing your brain cells.
One of the best parts of getting to blog on this site is sharing my love of The Simpsons with anyone who takes the time to read my words. I love the show and have seen every episode at least once. Recently, I’ve had a great excuse to re-watch them more and more just to talk about decorations, characters and buildings that have been added to TSTO.
Watching every episode, I can’t help but notice that the available content for TSTO is enormous! Any watcher could rattle off at least one thing they think should have been added to the game already. I’m actually mildly jealous of the folks who get to do this for EA. Anywho, with the holiday update, a lot of content got added to the game. Much of it is from Christmas episodes and some is from classic episodes. Looking at all the new stuff, I picture a boardroom full of nerds like myself pitching their ideas. I know there was at least one lazy guy who mentioned the totem pole which was designed eons ago, definitely one weasel with a flair for consumerism (and getting folks to spend donuts) and probably a dude who has gambled a little too much online. In addition, one of them definitely loved the 500th Simpsons episode aka Season 23, Episode 14: “At Long Last”.
EA did their utmost to give us a ton of new stuff in the holiday update and for a Simpsons nerd like me, I couldn’t be happier. One of my favorite things is that besides all the stuff from episodes, we may have actually got some original content! What might be unique? Two things, The Egg Nog Bar and Santa Flanders.
So for this fun and exciting Christmas 2013 event, EA has chosen to give us additional goodies and prizes in the form of a Wheel. Everyone likes to spin the wheel, right? I know I do. Everytime I go to any event, I just gotta grab a hold of that thing and SPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN it. ( I blame the Price Is Right.) Well now everyone has a chance to spin the wheel too. Continue reading →
