I came across this on reddit, and I felt like such a fool because it's true. I bought the Sushi restaurant with donuts I won from one of those golden scratch r's, as I just thought "oh hell, why not", It's not like I paid the real price for them. It never occurred to me, what I was actually buying was an advertisement, a promotion spot, and what's even better, is it's something I'm not even nostalgic about. I never bought the fruit batman because at the time I knew I wouldn't care if I had him or not. If it had been Lyle Langley I wouldn't have batted an eye lid in purchasing him, but I went against my own principles with this one.
If they release more episode tie ins, then don't pay for a promotion, they need you to watch The Simpsons, so stop letting them get around you because it's just wrong. You would never pay to see a promotion anywhere else so don't put up with from a game.
However if you have your reasons for wanting those items and are happy to pay for them, then it's all good because The sushi building is a nice addition but I can't help feeling a little stung.
Yeah and they're the clever ones because we buy it.

Fruit-batman therefore wasn't on my radar, but I bought the sushi place and i'm kicking myself over not playing when Fat Tony was available because although tie-ins, they have a place in my historical simpsons universe. (Springfield-iverse? Apu-niverse?)
Before that, the first 3 episode tie-ins were totally free
Cool Brown House & Cool Homer costume
From the trend after the cool brown house, it seems as we will never get a free tie in like that again, a new costume plus a building, oh well i dont mind updates are updates but free update are btr premium updates.. When it comes to tie in- episodes
There were free items. The entitlement trend continues.
Yes I know, that's why I took the time to type "at least".
Would be better if they were free for the week of the tie in, then were available for donuts for a while. I would gladly pay a few donuts for the duff racer.
EA just gave us the first couple of tastes for free. Now that we're hooked, we gotta pay. Sound like something???
I'm in this boat with the episodes, I don't care for Sky. I haven't bought the fruit bat man costume or the sushi falls, figured I probably wouldn't even remember what they were were a few weeks after the episode, much prefer the more iconic buildings and charecters.
Is that why when I havn't gotten any new content for a while I feel like...
I don't get why people want the Racer so much. It's nothing special and doesn't do anything unlike the other vehicles that came afterwards. Do people want it solely on the rarity of it?
It's really cool looking. I wasn't playing when it came out, so I can't regret it. But I'll buy it, if offered again.
I have the racer and I think it's cool but it's nothing to me. Fat tony is way cooler.
I think I have even used it with the bowlorama. Never really fits anywhere.
