Where Did THAT Come From – George Washington

Hey hey hey Addictereenos!

So… once upon a time EA brought us a 4th of July update with some cool stuff. Among it all was the appearance of George Washington and the cherry tree. Being a history nerd/buff/major, I immediately called dibs on writing about him and then never got around to it.  Week by week passed without my promised Mad Men of Springfield post.

Well, I won’t bore you with the details of my life/school/procrastination, but the long anticipated (by at least Alissa and Bunny) post is finally done and in yet another case of better late than never, I bring it to you.  While this is no Mad Men (unless you’re including me), I will preface this all by saying this character has been voiced in the show by Harry Shearer, Dan Castellaneta and Hank Azaria.  If that doesn’t qualify for a little madness, I don’t know what will.

Tapped Out Premium Walkthrough: Rex Redux

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the 4th of July is now over in Springfield, and I hope you guys managed to get everything you wanted from the update!  And now that it’s over it’s time to look at our 3rd, and final, full dialogue walkthrough for the event.  The Redux of Rex Banner!

Rex Banner was the freemium 4th of July Character during the 2013 Event & returned as a premium character (for 90 donuts) during 2014.  The 2014 questline for Rex (and All-American Apu, if you have him) is basically a repeat of the 2013 quesline, with a few dialogue updates.

Rex’s questline started automatically once 4th of July hit, if you had Rex already or it started after you purchased him and the Nighthawk Diner.  We’ve already brought you the Turbo Tappin’ version of this walkthrough, so now it’s time to catch up on what you missed (if you were tapping quickly) or missed out on (if you didn’t make the purchase) with the full dialogue version!

Now, enough stammering from me….let’s find those illegal fireworks with everyone’s favorite hard-nosed cop!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are on the final full day of the 4th of July Event & I think many of you are ready for it to be over!  As the event comes to a close we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at the dialogue  you may have missed from the event while tapping.

So here we are, back with another 4th of July Event Walkthrough!  This time we’re going to look at the Premium Quest that unlocks when you purchase George Washington & his Cherry tree.  We’ve already brought you the Turbo Tappin’ version of this walkthrough and now it’s time for the full dialogue walkthrough!  This is great for those Tappers that might have missed something in playing, or players who simply didn’t make the donut plunge on Ol’ Georgie.

So enough from me, let’s get on with the show….

Tapped Out Walkthrough: 4th of July 2014 & Failure to Launch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well as the 4th of July Event comes to a close we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at the dialogue  you may have missed from the event while tapping.

4th of July in the USA is all about celebrating America, and what better way to celebrate than with fireworks?!  Except what happens when they fail to launch?  What kind of 4th of July is that?!  Just like in the Season Finale of The Simpsons this year, Homer works to get Fireworks for Springfield on the 4th!  Except as always…someone foils the plan!

So now enough delay…let’s get to walking shall we?

Mad Men of Springfield: Guiseppe Granfinali

Welcome to another new addition to Addicts, the Mad Men of Springfield. We will be going into depth on the history and background of the male species running around our lil towns as well as those not yet in the game.

Just think about it. What Man living in Springfield is “normal”? Not a single one that I can think of. They all have at least ONE thing wrong with them. Seriously! Think about it. How many issues does Moe have? A Reverend a “little” obsessed with trains? An owner of a Kwik-E-Mart that goes to counseling with the same person that robs him, on a daily basis? Not to mention the “inbreeding” and other strange happenings going on at the farm. Oh the idiosyncrasies.

So sit back, relax, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy as we kram your brains with some Simpson knowledge of the MAD MEN OF SPRINGFIELD.

Where Did THAT Come From – All American Apu

“America for spacious skies for amber waves of grain… for something else I should’ve known and posts about the Simpsons… America… America….”

Oh!  Hey there readers!  Fancy meeting you here.  Don’t mind me, I’m just exercising my freedom brutalizing a song I’ve probably sang one too many times and really should remember.  We’re all still in the thick of the TSTO 2014 Event for July 4th.  Lots of cool American patriotic stuff came our way and you know that means… we’re here to riff on the origins of said stuff.  For today’s goodness, I thought it’d be fun to talk about the returning All American Apu skin.
