Hey there Addictereenos! So I’m texting with Alissa the other day and she’s all “hey Wook… you think you’d have time to do a What the Addicts Want post?” and I’m all “Sure thing boss.” I think if I’d known (or remembered from the last time) what I was getting in to, you might not be reading these words right now. I dredge through the site looking for the last post to use as an example and realize it’s been two years minus a week since we did one. TWO YEARS!!! The horror!
Why would the Wookiee be so remiss in compiling what people wanted? Well the answer became quite clear to me as I did just that. From January 2015 to now, wading through comments and writing down what people asked for, there’s words to describe my efforts that aren’t PG enough for here. Then I remind myself how much I love this community and just get through it. Jebus knows I’ve gone through tougher things than compiling a list. Long story short… truly, all of you really have some great ideas as evidenced by the last list and this one. If you’re interested in what I highlighted this time… click more.
Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh! Boooooooooooooooo! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr… EA stole my beautiful snow and made future so bright I gotta wear shades! Boo hoo!
Oh hey there Addictereenos… so I’m still lamenting the thaw in my town. I really love snow-time in TSTO. Of course that made me remember reader ideas about a weather button in our towns to bring back snow which got me remembering more of the great ideas you guys and dolls have. Every so often, I try to highlight these ideas into one big post and here it is.
So a year has come and gone on this site and I thought the perfect way to start off a new year was with another listing of things YOU want in the game. The last time we did one of these lists was back in January and February. Since then, we’ve collected quite a few from those posts, our Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA and in assorted comments I saved. If I forgot anyone, I apologize and I admit to editing some items for readability or conciseness. There really are some great ideas below.
No real complaints worth mentioning on my end. I did get up to some shenanigans today which I think might turn in to a post or two pretty soon so that’s always a bonus. During our latest mini-quest on New Year’s Day, I couldn’t help but notice this little bit of dialogue from Homer after completing his 24 hour to “Back Off EA”.
“But there better be some awesome stuff planned for 2014. Like the Monorail, and the Stonecutters, and a proper version of Sideshow Bob…”
“… and those ideas are just a few of the great ideas I found on the internet!”
Too funny that his other tasks included the forums (did you know we have our own forum here?) as well as some other troll-ish behavior. Is EA making fun of us? Maybe, but in the same way the Simpson’s writers make fun of everything. If they pick something to lampoon, that means it matters to them and I take that as a big win for TSTO fans.
We all know eventually our snow will have to melt in our towns, so when that update comes, if it’s not the Valentine’s Day Event, just what will be in store for us. Rumored judges and courthouses? Hal Roach Apartments? Only melted snowmen and beautiful greenery?
As an avid Star Wars fan and rabid Wookiee, I found myself all over the “web” searching for Simpsons Star Wars pictures and suddenly thought, how cool would it be if a special week or two of the game was dedicated to one of the best… movies… EVER?
So here are my ideas. To start, EA could offer more special costumes for characters.
