Jasper & The Springfield Community Center: Are you debating on a purchase?

Prev1
Seriously debating. 120 might have been a more reasonable price. 150 is a little bit high. But I guess I'm going to cave in and buy it.

    I went ahead and purchased this item. Very happy to have it, but like you said, the downside is noone uses it as a task, which is a bummer. But I like the way it looks and Jasper is a fun character to have.

    I spend the donuts to get characters that have tasks. (I stay away from the Funzos!) So even though the price seems high I'll do it. After all, ALL the content is priced too high.

    I purchased immediately. Can't help myself. Took advantage of Gil's deal last week 'cuz I knew this was coming. Hopefully the increase to the Bonus Multiplier will offset the Ratings decrease in Gluttony and Consumerism (which I'm not going to worry about until Squidport).

    Reasons against purchasing:

    2. The building he come's with could have easily been a no-character building like Zesty's! Not so exciting!

    But the building Jasper comes with wasn't a no-character building...so how is that a valid reason?

    It's not exactly as exciting as the building's that you would usually pay donut's for. Very dull building.

    I'm just so glad Jasper is voiced by Harry Shearer of the main cast as it means he gets a speaking role in this. Be no fun having Jasper unless he talks :)

    Thanks for bringing that up that's another valid reason to purchase.

    I guess community centers are usually among the finest examples of cutting edge architecture and aesthetic design. :-P

    Let me guess you clicked on this post because your debating on purchasing Jasper with your precious donuts... mmmm... donuts.

    Sorry, off track... Where were we? Oh right, Jasper! Jasper is a new premium character that has been delivered by EA in today's new update! Jasper has been a long awaited character for some and are most likely in joy he's been added... If your not one of those joyous Jasper fans and still not sure if you'll make the trade off with your sprinkled pastries than here are a few reasons why and why you shouldn't buy Jasper!

    Reasons for purchasing:

    1. Upon purchasing your delivered with a very medium sized story-line with innovative tasks!
    2. Speaking of task's 3 out of 5 are outdoor task's while the indoor one's are still very cool.
    3. His payout is 50% more than the regular character.
    4. Not only do you get Jasper but you get the Springfield Community Center a long with him!


    Reasons against purchasing:

    1. Jasper is a very neat character, but for 150 donuts that almost made me push away from the purchase.
    2. The building he come's with could have easily been a no-character building like Zesty's! Not so exciting!
    3. I have went through most character's and not one person use's the community center for tasks.

    Notes: 3 may not be 100% correct

    Nope no debate. Just bought it. :lol:

    This is definitely another up side.

    Another down side (although small) is that the community centre is oddly sized (5 i think?). Makes placing it a bit more difficult.

    It's the first thing I bought. But I bought a boatload in preparation for the next few updates. There have been more expensive items so the price, although high, isn't that exorbitant.

    while I agree the prices are a bit high.. folks should remember those Popular Voice actors demand a bit more cash for their services than some schlep off the street. thus higher costs to use in game..

    I got one too, right after I got the community center. Since they're not limited time, I'm gonna wait till after Squidport comes to see how many more I get.

    Bought it as soon as the update came, for me it was a must have no matter what.

    Hey everyone finally bought some doughnuts. I have 900 and was debating if I should get jasper or wait till another update comes out. Or should I get other premium buildings/characters?

    What a lot of nonsense. They could simply take existing sound samples from the TV show and use those in the game.

    Stop defending the EA exploitation.
