    You should still be able to get the other Halloween quests without buying the ray gun.

    This is such a joke. Who in their right mind would spend basically $10 for the ray gun? I'm on level 22 but am done with this crap. Endless glitches only to be forced to spend cash on a "free" game.

    Screw EA.

    How are you "forced" to spend cash? Get a grip, spaz.

    Even if you can't get all the Halloween stuff, who cares? There's going to be tons more stuff released in the future. This game is just getting started. Personally, I'm not all that thrilled with the Halloween stuff anyways. It's cool right now, but the majority of it, I wouldn't want in my Springfield after the holiday. The only item I see myself keeping around is the Supercollider building. Same goes for whatever content they release for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    The reality is, with every update they do, and every special event, there's going to be free stuff and premium stuff. It's up to the player to decide whether or not the premium stuff is worth it. If they choose it isn't, they don't have to buy it.

    The ray gun ends the Kang story line, the other story line with the Evil House, Bad Dreams House and Heck house are from Flanders and have nothing to do with the ray gun, so yes, you can get the rest of the stuff without paying for the ray gun, just no Kang and depending upon the person that is fine or sucks.

    Regarding the free game that I have to pay for stuff, well it is a freemium game, it is a new business model, get use to it. It is a way to attract people with a free product that entices them to spend more on upgrades or addons. It is a more profitable business model than just charging $5 or even $20 for an app as a one time buy as people over the years will justify spending $10 here and there, just like iTunes proved with $0.99 songs. The bottom line with this is they are giving you 75% of the game for free, no pay, no ads, no nothing, play and enjoy. What more do you want, pay $5 for a whole game? It is not going to happen with a game of this scope and this projected longevity and the developing team they have to have for it. (and I am not going to defend the crap servers and glitches, that needs to be fixed).

    Look at Zynga, they are losing money hand over fist from what I read, and their games rely on ads to be free. Frankly I like this approach better, decide up front that I am not going to pay for that stuff and get over it.

    I can't take Kang flying over my Springfield anymore! It's driving me bananas! The Super Collider bldg. is the only Halloween item I want. Maybe the Krusty doll. I definitely don't want the gun or Kang or any of that business. I tried storing the Black Hole to get rid of Kang, but that didn't work. I hope it's not the Super Collider bldg. that triggers him because I love that bldg. & don't want to store it...but Kang it making me mental!

    QUESTION. PLEASE ANSWER.

    When you buy the Ray Gun and get Krang, does the Ray Gun go away? It seems by looking at other peoples' Springfield that the Ray Gun explodes. Please confirm.

    It does explode with the space ship but you will get a new one in the storage to use.

    Cool, thanks.

    I planned on getting Krang sometime before the end of the month.

    The ray gun does explode but you get a new ray gun in your storage, I put mine next to my exploded one. IT is supposed to give a bonus to job money and xp, but that is a glitch right now that is not working on all premium items, but I expect that will get fixed (eventually).

    My guess is storing the black hole will not get rid of Kang, you are stuck with him until the 31st...my guess.
