Back when the big facebook dump first occurred I added Chris to as a friend on the iPhone game Simpsons Tapped Out since he posted his username for it. I never thought he'd accept my request but he did, and every time I log in to my town Sonichu has visited it.

If you look at Chris's town, he has everything. All the buildings, all the characters, both the stuff that you have to sit there and tap all day for weeks to get during stupid events, and all the stuff you have to pay real money for (I'd have to guess at least a thousand dollars worth, but I haven't done the math). Chris has has spent the maximum amount of money you can on the game.

And that's just the game where I'm on his friends list. There are millions of shitty little money pit games on that platform, and I have no reason to believe that Simpsons Tapped Out is his only iPhone vice. It makes me wonder how much money he's spending on these things. At least when you buy a videogame you're getting the ability to play a game; all you get when you buy Rich Texan is a little drawing of Rich Texan walking around your screen.

If Chris can work into his budget hundreds of dollars to buy imaginary buildings for double imaginary Springfield, then I have to assume he'll be able to scrape together the funds to buy the PS-Q.

P.S.: I always assumed nobody cared, but if there's interest I can post a picture of Chris's Springfield.

Tapped Out requires a ridiculous amount of time or money to build a decent town. I'm betting Chris dipped into the tugboat for Springfield.

So Chris has a virtual hoard he pisses away his hard earned (just not by him) tugbux on.

Barb has goodwill. Chris has PSN and iStore. Hoarders gonna hoard.

Okay Chris's Springfield is big and the stupid game is a crashy piece of shit. Rather than frustrate myself trying to capture the whole thing, here's the nickel tour:

This is a very typical section of CWCfield: semi-organized layout with random insane crap strewn about. You can see 6 things that cost real-world money in this picture alone.

More of the same.

I love that the identical houses all still have their Christmas decorations up (this can be toggled on and off).

With the exception of the silver robot guy, every single one of the buskers on his boardwalk is a premium character that costs real money.

See the melted Simpsons family snowmen? All real-money items. The section towards the Duff stuff at the top is a glut of premium stuff, but every time I try to scroll to that area the game crashes. It's full of real-money holiday decorations and real-money Duff beer stuff.

There, now just imagine another 15 of those and you have CWCfield.

I can only estimate, but if we assume he has 100 premium items (conservative estimate) we're looking at about $1,000, but it could be more. It also depends on how he bought his donuts; I looked it up and if he bought everything at once (which I know he didn't) it would have cost him $300 if he bought the donuts in bulk. But he probably bought them in smaller denominations, meaning he's looking at $720 or $1200. That also makes the pretty big assumption that he only used donuts to buy premium items, and not to speed up construction or buy extra money.

Edit: Oh, also, this assumes that he only bought one of each premium item and, as we can see from my screenshots, he has multiples of some.

Charming. When he's not whining about being broke from having to pay off the medical bills of a man he intentionally struck with his car, he's spending thousands of dollars on an iPhone game. He is truly irredeemable.

In his defense, he could have spent as little as $720 :tomgirl:

How can anyone enjoy that garbage? It looks about as stimulating as a coloring book.

It's full of jokes written by the writing staff of the Simpsons and the characters have the voices of the voice actors and they have funny little scenes. It's certainly not something worth spending money on, but it's a mildly amusing diversion to tap at while in the bathroom.

Edit: Not that I'm trying to imply it isn't garbage or anything, just answering your question as to how anyone could enjoy it.

I love the Simpsons, so I downloaded it when it came out. Game was so boring.

As a Simpsons fan, I find it irritating how all these Springfield landmarks just seem to be slapped next to each other, with no consideration for proportion or scale or logical placement. No wonder Chris loves it so much.

Ah, but lets imagine that we are all autistic manchildren who are easily amused by bright colors and pop culture references....He probably likes coloring books.
Chris doesn't care if it costs him a grand number of tugboats.
THIS CITY IS THE NEW CWCVILLE!

Based on your wording I'm not sure if you realize this or not: Chris is actually in charge of placing all of those buildings. The entirety of the game is deciding on the layout of the Springfield.
