Now I have finished my degree and am awaiting graduation I have much more time on my hands to do whatever is either needed or wanted. Sometimes it is feeling like too much time. Of course I have picked up more hours at work but what to do in the times at home? Clearly many have done the same so it’s not always easy to just go out during the days and perhaps even the evenings as such.
The options? Well first off I’ve set some time each and every day aside for guitar practice. I’ve already began learning a full song to play and currently refining my techniques. It sure beats just chucking the Xbox on for a game or two, I’ll admit. Apart from this time has also been set aside for a workout – this has been on and off over the past year so now’s the best time for it I think. I must admit I have been achievement hunting in my spare time too.
What else then? Well my car needed a few bits doing and my girlfriend also needed her room redone too. That’s still in the process of being finished. The odd jobs around the house have been undertaken and my room has already had a nice tidy out and is now awaiting a good clean up too.
The other thing I’ve returned to is writing and drawing. More time means more tonal drawings on the way, these may be put on here to add to the art corner I currently have in place. The writing side will take a bit more time – a story I began writing not too long ago can now be added to and again the link to an online reader may be posted for anyone interested. I find writing and drawing interesting and relaxing so may be a good time consumer alongside the other stuff I can get done in my spare time.
Evidently blogging will be another thing that uses some time and so will any changes being done to the page. Not to worry.

The rebrand of this blog page will be arriving soon; much of the details are currently being worked over and refined. As always, indecisiveness plagues the process and hinders progress too so patience really is a virtue here.
It’s finally here! The new update for the Simpsons tapped out has been released and that means the snakes have finally gone as well! So what’s been added? Here’s a few screenshots fresh from my town to illustrate:
First off the loading screen has changed and is now reverted back to the normal one. Not a big deal but I’m sure many wouldn’t have wanted that snake to remain after they have just made their towns snake free, would they? Although this loading screen doesn’t really show anything new or exciting – no surprise? </em.
Second? The rather major part of this update as I’m sure everyone has seen is the addition of the yard sale to the game. This offers a load of ‘cheap’ premium stuff to buy for your very own Springfield. Only two items are purchasable with in game money and for that I think this is rather annoying as an addition. The content there really does resemble the concept of a yard sale, too. Here’s a few more pictures on what’s being offered:
Of course those free prizes under the whacking day rewards have now been added as premium items which, to me, are far too overpriced as well. Of course this is only if you didn’t get all the prizes for whacking snakes. Here they are:
So to sum up: a few ‘cheap’ but premium items have been thrown in and the previously free buildings have been bumped up to golden status in terms of pricing. No new level, no new characters or buildings – just a donut van and a Laramie vending machine. I think, or rather hope’ that this is a sort of bridge for the upcoming bigger update containing all of the exciting stuff. Maybe it’s a taster of what’s to come. It must be remembered that this is for the finale of season 24 so perhaps EA have left the good stuff for a little longer. So in the words of Little Lisa;
It’s almost midnight (kind of) in the UK and that means one thing: the end of the 16th of May for us. No one knows when the whacking update will be over but by any means it is much anticipated. I’ve had people directed to this site about the end of whacking day and so on – however I must redirect them to the Simpsons tapped out tips page! This blog has it all, literally. Every single question you could ever have about this app will be answered there I can guarantee it. The link has been given at the end of this post.
The posts I do here are in no way attempting to shadow those of the blog page mentioned. Mine are simple reviews and general posts regarding all sorts – including of course the Simpsons Tapped out.
Back to it then; with any hope many, many happy players will either be waking up to or just being notified of a big update to end those snakes for good. It’s just a matter of time now.
Sorry for the rather misleading title for this post but I, amongst probably many others, are eagerly awaiting the update to end whacking day. Whether it is a major update or another smaller update from EA I think many will be happy to see those snakes gone.
I mean, it does and has become very tedious and somewhat annoying to constantly collect all of your income whilst setting tasks, whilst ridding your large town of annoying snakes too. It resembles a chore rather than a fun game now. So I ask; ‘EA, when or where is this update and when does whacking day actually end?’. I know I won’t get a response to the above mentioned question but it’s worth a shot.
Will it be another simple singular level add on with a building and character suit or will it be huge and completely mind boggling? It’s been around a year since this great game was released onto the unsuspecting app players eyes and therefore (I think) justifiably time for a big ‘shake up’. Give us the shore line and a few more levels, EA. I can anticipate much disappointment if nothing was added after whacking day seizes to exist (in the app, that is).
Rumours and speculation are currently covering the Internet and at every point varying views arise of different players’ wishes too. I for one would like to see an actual update where much content is added – keep players interested! Although saying that I’m sure many wouldn’t leave just because of the fan base which connects them to the loveable Simpsons.
At the moment however it seems to be business as usual – if of course you’re into a business of, erm, hitting snakes for a living. The last minute rush of snake hitting and egg placement is plaguing the Simpsons virtual towns until that long awaited update appears.
