I’m sure regular readers have noticed I haven’t been around as much with school going on. Life has been crazy and between school, work, and life, there’s not a lot of free time. One thing that does bring me joy though in the moments I have to myself is writing here, doing my geek podcast, and playing the silly little mobile game which led to the writing gig in the first place.
Over the last week, I’ve been working on another speculation post based on the hints EA gave us with the take down of the Vacation Event. I love that they’re giving us teases which actually pan out and I feel it poignant to point out that a lot of folks guessed from the last one that Rommelwood Academy was in our futures. I wasn’t one of them but oh well. It definitely fits into the idea of Military Miseducation.
But wait!?! Didn’t the most recent one thing say something about misfires in connection to the military? I don’t see anything which falls into that category unless you count the premium missile with a drawing of Homer on it so it while I initially thought about scrapping this entire post as being too late to matter, instead of wasting the time it took to get it done, I figured it couldn’t hurt to still present my ideas. Heck… even a broken clock is right twice a day so why not prognoscticate like the Wookstradumb@$$ I am?
So EA took away our snow and brought us a winter take-down update. While I find my Springfield to be glaringly green all of a sudden and miss my Wookiee Winterland, this time of year always leads to some speculation about the future of the game. Of course, EA made that even easier with some teases in the app store descriptions.
iOS and Android – The New Year has been rung in, and the soggy decapitated goat heads have been wrung out. With Springfield getting back to normal, what will be next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? A valentine visit from a gluttonous gal? Maybe some military miseducation? You’ll just have to wait to find out!
Amazon – The heretics have had their time and a new year has been celebrated. As the religious riots settle and the townsfolk get back to their normal lives, what’s next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? An invasion of bow wielding gnomes?
I must admit, I laughed at these as I often do. Whoever writes the script for the beginnings of updates gets two furry thumbs up. Anyhoo… all these questions got me thinking about what the clues might mean. In a typical fashion, I sat down in the attic, blew the Cheetos dust off my fingers, and thought and thoughts and crunched and thought about what each hint made me reminisce about from the Best. Show. Ever. With some good thinks accomplished, Alissa convinced me to share my fuzzy thinking with all of you. I won’t share my cheesy poofs but I guess you can have my ideas. With all that being said, here’s Wookstradamus Prognostication based on veiled hints from a clever writer at EA.
You know… the little joke in the Maggie questline about Krustyland got me thinking about EA’s forgotten little disaster.
Why don’t they do more with it? Is there a way to connect it to regular Springfield without the shuttle so people don’t ignore it? I am an admitted theme park enthusiast and I enjoy going to Krustyland. I’m proud of my designing in KL.
Even if you feel like Moe about it, the Sideshow You donuts should be enough of an incentive to pop by. I’ve had some ideas for bringing some TLC to the theme park before and actually had a post idea for months that was delayed by events, school, work, and real life in general. Then I read some of our addicts discussing it in the SUnday Open Thread this morning and realized I should get off my Duff (pun intended) and finally write the post since I find myself with some free time. Of course, I write on said Duff but anyhoo… here we go-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh………..
So one of the things I do on occasion here is point out some speculatory ideas based on dialogue bubbles in the game. I did it back during Level 42 and also from bits prior to January 2015. Interestingly, quite a bit actually appeared later in the game whether you consider it coincidence or not.
And they called it puppy love Oh, I guess they’ll never know How a young heart really feels And why I love her so
Hey hey hey! You know my friends, it’s been too long since I did one of these What a Wookiee Wants posts about future stuff and with the TSTO Holiday Event coming to a close, I thought it was high time. In the past, the snow thaws and the next event brings us Cupid and lots of stupid pink to TSTO. That’s right fellow Addicts, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day.
So it’s late-ish in the evening and I was pottering around the mass screenshots and dialogue I save when I realized it’s been a little since the last time I threw out some speculation on the site.
EA sometimes throws out little items in their dialogue boxes that get all us nerds frothing at the mouth for potential new items. Could they be showing us glimpses of the future? I figured it’s no fun to have all these thoughts and questions up here in the attic so why not share. If you’re curious, go right on ahead and click for more.
“To all who come to this krusty place; welcome. Krustyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of Simpsons past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of nausea. Krustyland is dedicated to the debts, the dreams and the hard laughs that have created Springfield…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
You know… every time I say howdy it makes me laugh. First off because I’m not from Texas (although I have lived in San Antonio for almost a year collectively) and secondly because when I was in the military flying on planes, if you sat next to someone and said howdy, it meant you’d farted. Way too funny to think of that in connection with a word.
Anywho… this post isn’t about Texas, the military or farts but I had to share. You know I’m random like that. What this post IS about is some speculation I had recently about possible SPOILERS EA may or may not have told us about. If that’s your bag… go right on ahead an click continue reading. Seems there was more to spy than some realized.
What do you call Chewbacca when he has chocolate stuck in his hair?
A Chocolate Chip Wookiee.
Sorry, had to share but does that make me a cheesey poof Wookiee? Consider that as the world turns lol. Anywho… I realized it had been a while since I did one of these WAWW posts and figured I’d use some of my extra photos from my latest sojourn to Krustyland in Hollywood to bring out some ideas.
Well hello there Addicts and welcome to another Wookiee report on The Krustiest Place on Earth!
So, some of you know that I am blessed to live near one of the real Krustylands in Southern California. Just for fun, I even wrote a little about Krustyland in Hollywood. The other Krustyland is in Florida and part of an entire Springfield recreation. Thanks to dumb luck, I actually visited there last year and wrote about it just for you.
That’s all neither here nor there but with the appearance of Krustyland in one of the latest Simpsons episodes (S25:E14, “Winter of His Content”) and Bunny’s Springfield Show-Off Post, I’m not only excited about designing my Krustyland but salivating over new things we could get in the future.
