    In all honestly I'm not big on this update either. None of it is in the Springfield Guide for one thing, and yes that native costume for Lisa is straight up racist. I'm surprised she doesn't know better, and I'm glad Homer is driving that point home. I don't care about balloons, and I would have preferred the Burns Casino and the S.S. Springfield, to the Caesar's Powow and the Mayflower.

    I think this kind of stuff matters more to Americans than me. I don't even want this stuff, let alone want to pay for it. That being said, I'm not going to let it ruin my day like it did for Josh. :wink:

    I love the update! Getting an update almost every week is nice. And I've seen the Bart to the Future episode so many times that I WISH I had 150 donuts to drop on the casino.

    I wasn't expecting much for Thanksgiving. So, I'm loving this update. The balloons I purchased for cash gave me a ton of XP.
    I don't care if I can't sell them. I'll keep what I don't use in storage. Hope they don't put a cap on item storage!
    I'll get the premium content I missed last year in a few days. Thanks EA!

    Exactly. We're between 2 major events and have a new level with nice long quest lines. Think of it as a simple decoration update.

    The casino fit perfectly in my town right next to the burial ground and the race track (replaced a KEM / gas station). I love the ship, but then have always been around such and it makes me feel at home. I like skins in general - they give characters some small sense of dimension in such a flat world - and I love Lisa's skin. I appreciate, rather than resent, that the dialogue belabors the irony that the American Thanksgiving Day holiday has for Native Amaricans. I also appreciate the confusion re: racism between Homer and Lisa since unintentional bias can result from thoughtless or knee-jerk political correctness, as in sometimes one sees some where there is none, or belittles in an effort to "help."

    So far this update is well written snd stands in contrast to some of the sloppy writing we had in the Halloween event.

    Couldn't agree more! I like the Questlines, ship, Lisa skin, Chief, Casino, and Soon to be turkey.

    Also the Grumble is a great addition, I bought 4. I am hoping someday for a Spingfield Ice Rink and will be ready for The Grumble on ice!

    I find it funny people are biatching about the racism and update. I am a 5th generation Native American that celebrates Thanksgiving and I happen to be a gay man to boot. Maybe I should moan the game isn't gay enough or hasnt had a rainbow update.

    I believe last year it was just balloons. Considering it feels like Halloween *just* ended, I'm surprised we got this large of an update. Pleasantly surprised.

    My complaints? The Mayflower is freaking huge! That and the Stampy Balloon and Rusty balloon are kind of creepy.

    Completely fill up your friends slots and visit them everyday. You should be at Level 15 before the event ends.

    Ah the 21st century.

    Where a guy can become a "Celebrity" for trolling a message board.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Josh's posts. I think he's amusing at times. But I do hope that when humanity looks back upon the 21st Century, that they choose to look back with a little bit of kindness. The age of the internet - where everyone can have a platform for their ramblings, irrespective of whether or not anyone wants to listen, and random strangers can connect and indulge in behavior that they most certainly wouldn't in their real lives, masked by the anonymity of a keyboard and a screen.

    A golden age where celebrity is prized over intelligent thought, and where words like "Chillax" and hashtags and acronyms like "YOLO" are a thing.

    Great time to be alive. Oh, excuse me. I seem to have gotten off topic.
