As we near the tenth week, which has come on quickly, I thought we
should have a recap of all the things I’ve covered.
- I – A list of characters we’d like to
see in the game, some of which have already been included since
then. These are Lenny and Carl, Jasper Beardly, Agnes Skinner, and
the Rich Texan.
- II – A quiz testing Simpsons
- III – The quiz results and posing
the question of new buildings
- IV – A big rant on buildings with
special interactive features and notifications
- V – A history of splash screens,
and a link to download the Tapped Out
- VI – An analysis of which dog to bet
on at the Downs, and advertising friend-gathering website http://simpsonstappedout.eu .
- VII – Texture glitch pictures,
escaping snakes, and other strange snake behaviour.
- VIII – the earning side of Whacking
- IX – A
recap and the ridiculous extension of Whacking
- X – Surprise! This
also happens to be on my birthday (May 18), so if I’m a little late
with it please bear with.
Secondly, a little
bit on the extension of Whacking Day by EA. We’ve already covered this before but I haven’t inserted my
opinion yet: it’s a complete sham. A load of people spent
donuts hurrying to the end for the prizes they want, but it’s only
a game and nobody forced them to. That said, when EA had previously
expressly confirmed the end was May the 9th, and then they put it
forward a week without telling anybody, was a very poor performance
on their part. Is it just EA’s notoriously bad communication, or a
sales ploy trying to get more cash for them through donuts? It’s
hardly as if they need to. So, you can tell me what you
think on the poll a few posts back, and I’ll post the results on
May 15th. I can tell you that 10,600
players have already voted, and it’s very close between the top two
– 3,927 for delighted and 3,822 for tired of snakes. 2248 for
annoyed and 603 for no opinion, finished – at the moment. But those
percentages could swing if you cast your vote now! Until next time,
