Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Murky water, tress have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us! Yes, with this annual event we never know if we’ll get a trick or a treat, if it’ll be Halloween-y or spoof-y…but it arrives in our pocket-sized towns nonetheless year after year. And this year, marks the 10th…yes the TENTH…Treehouse of Horror update in TSTO. So what does EA have in store for us this year? Dinosaurs! In true Treehouse of Horror spoof style. As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…
Remember, this is the FINAL Act of the event. So Act 4 and all other previous Acts will be leaving our games in 8 days…November 10th. So finish up the prize tracks before November 10th.
Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Lisa, Frink, Quimby, and Homer…
Lisa: Mad science has failed and dinosaurs are still terrorizing our town. Can we please try some real science for a change?
Frink: Lisa is correct. Real science is cool…well, not cool but it’s worth a try!
Quimby: What sort of real science are we talking about?
Lisa: We can engineer a retrovirus that would—
Frink: Oo, lasers! Lime green lasers!
Homer: *chants* LASERS! LASERS! LASERS!
Quimby: Lasers it is!
This triggers the Act 4 questline, Better Fighting Through Science and is followed by 2 hr tasks for Lisa, Frink, and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (155), and a task to collect/tap 15 dinosaurs. Better Fighting Through Science is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
