Dear Mikezilla, 5/29/14 Edition

image

In this series I will respond to questions from pretty much anyone, asked through the comments section, and my twitter account ( @supermikeio ) or on tapped-out.co.uk in the traditional style of beloved newspaper columnist Dear Abby. You can ask me anything you want game related or otherwise, and I will choose and answer my favourites. The folks whose questions are chosen will not only gain knowledge from my infinite wisdom, but also get a shoutout in my post, and all the fame that comes with it.

image

The first question belongs to one of my twitter followers.

image

Now I don’t advise following him as he kind of reminds me of a serial killer, and can’t seem to form a proper sentence, but asks a great first question. To me the best character is Hank Scorpio, both from the classic episode “you only move twice” and TSTO. It brings a tear to my eye whenever I see him wielding that flame thrower, or taking out James Bont.

image

The next question comes from my waitress today, I believe her name was Helga but for some reason I didn’t notice her name badge.

image

Well Helga, it’s taken all day, and I’ve finally figured out my answer to your question for the ages. Yes I would like the soup of the day. If I recall it was cream of whiskey.

image

And finally the last question comes all the way from my South African pen pal N’dgoo.

image

He writes “Dear Mikezilla, I am slowly starving to death, can you please help me?” Well N’dgoo thanks for that great question but the short answer is no! I already spent the last of my money buying iTunes gift cards waiting for the next “Gil deal”.  Don’t worry though little N’dgoo, I had enough left over for a stamp, so I’m sending you an autographed photo of me!

Well that’s all the time I have for today, but please leave any questions for me in the comments, and I may answer them in the next instalment

Where did that come from? Chester Dupree and the unfinished Shed

Hi tappers,

It is with my greatest of apologies for not posting over the weekend and the early week, things have been hectic for me. I’m back though, for a brand new post on a brand new character.

So Chester Dupree, EA were telling the truth when they said that Cehster had not appeared in the show before, but, as the Wookie from TSTO Addicts pointed out last week, he has been mentioned.

In “Gone Abie Gone” (S25:E4), Homer is at a sign and, well, here is the dialogue straight from the wookie to explain it better:

Homer: “Pushy sign.  Don’t tell me what to try.”

Marge appears in thought bubble: “Homer.  Dr. Hibbert told you to eat healthier.”

Homer: “I don’t recall that.”

Marge: “Well I do.”

Dr. Hibbert appears in a thought bubble from Marge: “Eat healthier.”

Bernice Hibbert appears in thought bubble from Dr. Hibbert: “You too, Julius.  I heard you were at Loretta’s Diner on Catfish Friday.”

Julius: “How do you know that?  You got your brother following me?”

Bernice: “Chester needs a job.”

Julius: “I paid him to build a shed.  Where is my shed Bernice?”

Homer plugs Marge’s ears and says quietly to the drive-thru so as not to interrupt the marital argument: “One onion rings please.”

So that strongly suggests that Chester is made after this Chester. Along with Wookie, I do agree that the developers of the game wanted to bring Bernice into it, and chose to bring Chester with her, to add more content to the level.

So thats all on Chester, I’ll be back soon to give the lowdown on his tasks, as well as those from Bernice.

Keep Tapping,

Tweeting With The Stars: Drederick Tatum edition

Hey all, in this series I will try to tweet with celebrities that have appeared on the show and attempt to entertain with the outcome, or lack of.

image

So I was tweeting with my many followers the other day when I started chatting with Apollo Creed himself Carl Weathers.

image

Carl seems to be a kind man who will reply to anyone with a positive spin and wish you to “be peace”  while as far as I’m aware he’s never made an appearance on the show, it got me thinking about the often over looked Drederick Tatum

image

Tatum came to us in the whacking day event and I believe was the second last prize, his 4hr walk the tiger task is one of my favourites and is a take off from the hangover movies. Dredericks character has been a take on Iron Mike for years, there was even a Simpsons-esque Don King in some episodes.

image

I took the time to tweet Mr.Tyson to find out if he actually owns a tiger, but have not heard back yet, I did not tweet Don King as he scares the $&!¥ out of me. His hair reminds me of the time a French woman put me in a headlock.

image

I’d like to leave you all with my favourite part of The Hangover series that featured the former Champ

Stu’s Song

What do tigers dreams of
When they take a little tiger snooze?
Do they dream of mauling zebras
Or Hallie Barry in her Catwoman suit?

Don’t you worry, your pretty striped head
We’re gonna get you back to Tyson and your cozy tiger bed
And then we’re gonna find our best friend Doug
And then we’re gonna give him a best friend hug

Doug, Doug, oh Doug, Doug, Dougie, Doug, Doug
But if he’s been murdered by crystal meth tweekers
Then we’re shit out of luck.

If you’d like to try to tweet with any of today’s Stars, you can find them on Twitter

Mike Tyson: @MikeTyson

The New Celebrity Character Showdown: Gaga vs Bieber

Hey all and welcome to the “New Celebrity Character Showdown” or NCCS.

image

For those of you who are not familier with it, you should be ashamed, very ashamed! Periodically I will pit two celebrities that have appeared in the Simpsons universe in a head to head battle royale, to determine (based on your votes) who should permanently become residents of Springfield. What’s “new” about it you may ask? nothing, it just sounds flashier then before when I put the word “new” in front.

This weeks Showdown sees two dwindling pop figures duke it out.

image

will Lady Gaga, burn through Justin’s playlist? Or will Usher release Mr. Burns hounds to eat Gaga’s meat suit? Vote now to find out.
