Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Don’t forget voting is open in the latest Bracket Battle!  Pick your favorite buildings to advance!

 

So, this week it was out with the old and in with the..old? Yes, we saw the return of Superheroes this week.  Don’t worry though, just a small little update with mostly items to purchase.  We suspect the next big thing will hit us in August…what do you think it will be?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Can you believe July is almost over?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Out with the old, in with the new. as the Time Travel Event is over and we’ve got a new mini event in our games.  A good time to catch up on some design work or just recharge your TSTO battery, as the mini event lasts 2 weeks and won’t take nearly that long to complete. What do you plan to do with your “downtime”?

What do you think the next Major Event will bring?

RVPD – You Can Make it “Pirate Day” Every Day!

I have to admit that I had completely forgotten that “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” actually started just 45 miles away from me.  Two guys in Albany, Oregon started the annual event, mostly as a lark, until columnist Dave Berry got hold of it, and blew it up, big time in 2002.

It was in his column that the concept of spending an entire day, talking like a pirate, got “sea legs” and really took sail.  The story is actually pretty hilarious…even the “how did you choose the date?” part…that ends up revolving around one of the “founder’s” ex-wives.

You can visit the official site HERE.

Not surprisingly, the British got into it (after all, most of the best Pirates were actually British), but their site(s) — are confusing, and seem to center on a Pirate names “Mad Cap’n Tom” who has none of the gravitas or “real Pirate” vibe that a Blackbeard, or Captain Kidd, or Sir Francis Drake have.  And yes…ironically, Drake was a pirate before he became a “sir” for taking apart the Spanish armada, one ship at a time.

I know a lot about pirates. I was obsessed with pirates when I was young, (before I decided I would rather be a World War One fighter ace).  But, when the National Talk Like a Pirate Day first surfaced, my love of Pirate lingo returned quickly.

But…I have to admit, my first attempts were not well received…and almost got me fired.

Results and Opinions on the TTT Prehistoric Poll

I have been warned by Mom (Alissa) not to write the kind of post that I would have written as CrankyOldGuy on my old site. I think that goes without saying, as I am a far LESS cranky guy these days, after several months of being here at Addicts.

That said, I think you will get my general impression as far as what I think about the way things went during the Prehistoric (Post-Hysterical?) Act I of the Time Travel Toaster event that EA unfurled.

The response to the poll was huge…as in FAR larger than most of the polls done by news agencies during the political season. More than 4,000 players responded!  This can certainly be considered “empirical data”  to which EA should certainly take a serious look (especially if they want to keep players happy, and playing). The results are fairly self-evident…with only a few minor surprises and anomalies.

Why I DIDN’T Buy the Curvaceous Cave and Cave Girl Booberella

Let’s start with the fact that I realize that the content of this post may offend some of you.  Some of you are hardcore supporters of EA and everything they do. Some of you are hardcore KEM miners who can/will buy anything, just because you can.  And some of you are women, who hate seeing men objectify certain parts of the female anatomy.

Thinking about it…this post might offend ALL of the above-mentioned categories of players.  But, hear me out. I think I have some of the most valid reasons ever for passing on a Premium Buy, that most people (knowing my sadly “dirty old man” aversion to cartoon women in this game) may be shocked (or not, after I explain it) to read here.  I’m not proud of it…but it is…as they say…what it is!

Here are the THREE primary reasons I didn’t buy this combo…
