Bender did indeed make an appearance in TSTO!
Alas, only in a series of dialogues. None-the-less, I’m still totally stoked about it 🙂
Sorry Barbarian Homer, but I must reluctantly disagree with you.
Bender Bending Rodríguez is definitely the good (make that “the best”) kind of Bender.
Once-upon-a-time (in my boozier years) I might have sided with you.
However, now, I just want Futurama to ‘live on’ in some form or the other ~ and this is a very good start.
My friend Chris J made a post on TOuk that has gotten me so excited that I felt compelled to add a post to this blog, which I rarely do these days. That should give some indication as to how fired-up I am about this. Chris was letting us know that ‘The Legendary’ spAnser has posted (on TSTONews) that an icon of Bender has been added to the game files with the ‘Medieval Times’ update.
Oh please let this be a sign that that the upcoming Simpsons/Futurama crossover will include an Episode Tie-In for TSTO.
Is “Cheese it” a Futurama reference? It’s one of my all-time favorite Bender sayings
Outside of old 1940’s and 1950’s black & white gangster movies, the only other place I ever recall hearing “Cheese it” was Katey Sagal as Peggy Bundy in Married with Children. Sagal is the voice actor for the character Leela in Futurama. That’s what Kelly Bundy would call a ‘coinkydink’😉
So anyway, if you think that was speculative, I’m just getting warmed up… How about the possible return of the Mapple Store?
The next new episode of the Simpsons “Four Regrettings and a Funeral” is airing Sunday after next – November 3th (in the US). This is apparently the episode where someone dies. Folks are sharing regrets at the funeral. Homer’s is about selling his Mapple stock to buy a bowling ball. This would seem to be a perfect opportunity for a TSTO tie-in bringing the Mapple Store back for a very limited time. Please EA – oh pretty please! It sure would be nice to finally be able to do these locked tasks that have (excuse the Halloween pun) haunted me since I started playing the game in late February 2013…
And now I’m going completely farfetched… Actually it’s more like I’m still really enjoying the TOH XXIV Couch Gag. Every time I watch it, I see something new. Like this ‘Krusty.. Now Doing Funerals’ billboard.
