WHEEL… OF… FORTUNE?

You can replace fortune with FRUSTRATION, FORMULAS or according to others, some other “F” words if you like.

How’s every one doing?  Been strolling around the wide world of TSTO and recently I’ve noticed quite a few folks intensely focused on the Holiday Wheel that came with this year’s holiday update.  What at first seemed like such a cool concept has ended up being a hotly debated item.  There are folks who have become disillusioned, feel cheated, don’t care, want that last item that is taunting them.  Whatever the case, it is definitely one of those items you either love or hate it seems.

A holiday WDTCF Ramble about the Egg Nog Bar and Santa Flanders

Whaaaaaazuuuuuuup!  Do you remember that obnoxious advertising campaign?  If not, Mytube has them I’m sure.  They were beer commercials.  Funny at first and then mildly irritating and then searing your brain cells.

One of the best parts of getting to blog on this site is sharing my love of The Simpsons with anyone who takes the time to read my words.  I love the show and have seen every episode at least once.  Recently, I’ve had a great excuse to re-watch them more and more just to talk about decorations, characters and buildings that have been added to TSTO.

Watching every episode, I can’t help but notice that the available content for TSTO is enormous!  Any watcher could rattle off at least one thing they think should have been added to the game already.  I’m actually mildly jealous of the folks who get to do this for EA.  Anywho, with the holiday update, a lot of content got added to the game.  Much of it is from Christmas episodes and some is from classic episodes.  Looking at all the new stuff, I picture a boardroom full of nerds like myself pitching their ideas.  I know there was at least one lazy guy who mentioned the totem pole which was designed eons ago, definitely one weasel with a flair for consumerism (and getting folks to spend donuts) and probably a dude who has gambled a little too much online.  In addition, one of them definitely loved the 500th Simpsons episode aka Season 23, Episode 14: “At Long Last”.

EA did their utmost to give us a ton of new stuff in the holiday update and for a Simpsons nerd like me, I couldn’t be happier.  One of my favorite things is that besides all the stuff from episodes, we may have actually got some original content!  What might be unique?  Two things, The Egg Nog Bar and Santa Flanders.

Anywho… I don’t know about you but I really feel like this update was so worth the wait.  Just the first glimpse of my town had me all Chrismistified (thanks Alunited1961 for the EPIC word).
