Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!

While the Christmas event, and snow, are annual the structure of this event is anything but!  This is the first major event in Springfield that’s structured like a mini-event.  Christmas consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the Simpsons Christmas Special!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with following Bart’s Christmas story…all about a pair of buddy cops about the bust open a Christmas case.  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for Bart’s story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 2 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Bart’s Christmas Story…

Episode 22- 2017 TSTO in Review

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to a very special Addicts Live!  We’re not quite as live as we usually are this time.  Instead, the Addicts crew got together between Christmas and New Year’s to bring you a very special 2017 in TSTO review!

Yes, in this episode the Addicts breakdown each and every update that hit TSTO in 2017 (Major, mini and non-event). Plus we shared our takes on the good, bad and ugly for each.  And we even take a little time to give some speculation on what 2018 may bring in TSTO!

You can download this episode from Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or listen to it below!

Audio Only:

Note: Wookiee recorded special audio for this (that I mention at the top of the show) but it’s only on the Podcast version of the show.  You can hear his take about 2017 in TSTO right around the 1hr 5m mark of the Podcast version. (downloadable from the links above, or just click the audio right below this text)

Thought Provoking Question:
What’s your favorite holiday memory?

Welp….

Update: It’s hit the files.  I don’t see it in app stores yet, but it’s in the files.  So update coming soon…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welp, it’s just after 6pm here on the east coast (although just after 3pm at EA HQ) and still no update.  Either EA is still working on getting the update released or they’re doing the ultimate troll job on us.  We’ll have to wait to see which one it is….

Meanwhile, I’m still here, checking away…so I’ll let you know if/when I see anything.

Just checked again…as of 6:10pm ET no update. Hang in there, we’re all in this together…
