RIP Stephen Hawking – May You Finally Find Your Answer…

I was reminded by Alissa, that we don’t usually do obits for people on this site, unless they were critical to the show, or the game.  However, there were few guest  appearances on The Simpsons, that had the “Cool Factor” that came with Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of the past century.

There is something simply fun about a man who spent his life trying to bring about a solution to the “Unified Theory of Physics” (a way to resolve traditional Physics with Quantum Physics), and playing a part in a show as irreverent and fun as The Simpsons.

For this reason alone, I was overjoyed when he became a character in our game, able to fly around our own little universes in a way he never could in real life.

It’s interesting to me that a man like Hawking could generate so much controversy with his theories.  And I admit, I didn’t totally buy into his version of creation, although in later years, he showed a flexibility in the “what could be” that some of his contemporaries (Neil deGrasse Tyson as an example) seem to lack.

But his courage, in a life that could have, and perhaps should have been full of bitterness, was the thing that I respected more than anything else.

Turbo Tappin’ Sci-Fi Springfield: Act 3

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

Act three arrived earlier today, with a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 3 runs until September 20th, and you’ll need Hawking free to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to close the black hole and FINALLY restore order to Springfield…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast. It’s just after 3am on the East Coast of the US…but who can sleep with Stephen Hawking conspiring to take over our Pocket-sized Springfields with an army of deranged Robots?!  Act 3 of the Sci-Fi Event is upon us….so have at it my friends!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Hawking will start this for you with dialogue from Stephen Hawking and the Robots.  This will be followed by a task to play the Sci Fighter game and defeat Mecha Hawk, the newest Robot. (I’ll warn you it’s not as easy as you think.  Some details below).  This will then be followed by a 4hr task for Hawking at the Polyvac.   Oh, and you will have to complete the Act 2 questline (Smack to the Future Pt. 10).  So if you didn’t complete it yet, you won’t see the new questline.

Act 3 runs until September 20th

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…
