Love is in the air they say… or is it smog? I always get those two mixed up. Is there a love alert today? Do we have to keep the kids indoors? Is Cupid polluting the atmosphere? Even in the middle of a mini-event, I find myself wondering what is coming down the pike in our beloved game. Even after 2 years and 4 months of content, there’s still so much that could be added. Every once in a while, I put on my thinking cap and consider some options. Here’s what a Wookiee wants for VD. (Not VD lol)
It’s that time again! Halloween is right around the corner and already some of my favorite theme parks are all decked out for the festivities. Of course, that means a new Treehouse of Horror episode for my favorite cartoon and even better, the 4th Halloween Event for TSTO. I can’t believe I’ve been playing this game for almost three years but have to admit it was premium offerings in October 2012 that first got me to shell out cash to EA.
But what does this have to do with yours truly? Well… I used to regularly post about things I’d like to see in the game. Over time, I decided it was more appropriate to highlight what y’all want but every once in a while I still wrote about my own ideas. Over time, these slowed but more and more often, items I picked out showed up in the game. Whether that has anything to do with me is a battle between coincidence and hubris. Anywho… My favorite time to do this is Halloween and I saw a comment or two about if I was going to do another “What a Wookiee Wants” for Halloween 2015 so I decided why the heck not? If for no other reason, it gave me an excellent excuse to hold a personal Treehouse of Horror marathon. That exercise alone made this whole post worth it.
The resulting list is items I saw while watching that made me think…. “Oooh, oooh, that’d be so cool in the game.” I tried hard to steer clear of the usual zombies, vampires, mutants items that are obvious choices (although any of those could be fun). Initially my list was much longer but I ended up shortening it during my second pass. Fair warning, this doesn’t imply that my list is short just that a while ago in a galaxy much closer to you than some would like it was longer lol. You’ll notice some THOH episdoes were excluded completely. In fairness, a lot of these items are repeats from my wish list last year but I did purposely avoid reading last year’s post before writing this one. I guess a fuzzball wants what a fuzzball wants. Without further ado or aplomb… click more if you’re interested in just WHAT a wookiee wants for Halloween.
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.
Did you hear that? You’re just imagining things. Let’s just get out of here. Oh, my girsch! Run! We’ve got company! Eat this! Who are you? You don’t have to do this! Burn in hell!
Phew… that was intense. If you haven’t figured it out, Halloween time is approaching in our beloved TSTO and in preparation, I’ve been watching one or two horror movies to get amped up. In the spirit of upcoming in-game spookiness, I thought it’d be fun to pick some items I’d love to see for the next event. (If you’re interested, my 2013 list is here.)
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.
You came back for more? WOO HOO!!!! Can you feel the romance in the air? I certainly can!
With the holiday event coming to a close on January 14th, a lot of us are just waiting for a return of the Valentine’s Day event and you know that means, right? Yup, I get the chance to dish on some stuff I’d like to see with it. Best part for me is reader pkkao actually asked me to do it. For most of this post, I’ll be abbreviating Valentine’s Day as VD. Covers two reasons, my laziness and how funny I think it is to use that particular abbreviation in conjunction with a “love” holiday.
Hello to all my TSTO cupids, singles, swingers and monogamists! Does that cover every one? Let’s see… Ralph Wiggum as cupid, CBG the bachelor, Dr. Hibbert the swinger and Homer. Yup… got ‘em all!

No real complaints worth mentioning on my end. I did get up to some shenanigans today which I think might turn in to a post or two pretty soon so that’s always a bonus. During our latest mini-quest on New Year’s Day, I couldn’t help but notice this little bit of dialogue from Homer after completing his 24 hour to “Back Off EA”.
“But there better be some awesome stuff planned for 2014. Like the Monorail, and the Stonecutters, and a proper version of Sideshow Bob…”
“… and those ideas are just a few of the great ideas I found on the internet!”
Too funny that his other tasks included the forums (did you know we have our own forum here?) as well as some other troll-ish behavior. Is EA making fun of us? Maybe, but in the same way the Simpson’s writers make fun of everything. If they pick something to lampoon, that means it matters to them and I take that as a big win for TSTO fans.
We all know eventually our snow will have to melt in our towns, so when that update comes, if it’s not the Valentine’s Day Event, just what will be in store for us. Rumored judges and courthouses? Hal Roach Apartments? Only melted snowmen and beautiful greenery?
Well hello Addicts! Happy Halloween is finally over? Well, the crazy thing about America and The Simpsons is we like to jam pack all our big holidays into the last 2 months of the year. Just when you catch your breath… it’s time for Thanksgiving!
“Oh Lord… on this blessed day… we thank thee for giving our family one more crack at togetherness.”
