Many were excited to hear that TinyCo were putting the finishing touches on what turned out to be called Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff, and I must confess I was one of them. I’m a big Family Guy fan, and I’m an avid Simpsons Tapped Out player so it ticks all the boxes. In the interests of fairness, I have abandoned Springfield for the past week and concentrated all my attention on Quahog to see how it compares. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to report that the comparison is ‘not favourable’. What I have done therefore is do a comparison between The Simpsons and Family Guy, strengths and weaknesses, and let you make your own mind up.
I do like a good session on Football Manager, however sometimes the pressures of high level management get to me. After a long day at work, I don’t have the energy to massage the egos of two dozen prima donna mouth breathers in their mid-twenties with more money than morals. Fortunately, there’s an interesting little glitch that can be found in one of the Football Managers that allows for instant financial gratification, and it makes for some interesting plot lines….
I can’t help but love The Simpsons Tapped Out. I really wish I didn’t because EA have buried it under a mountain of premium content; some features costing up to and over £7 – £8 for just an ornament. You know what you’re getting when there’s an option to purchase £70 worth of in game currency, but there’s so much to like about it and it’s just so addictive. You just need to be a little bit careful you don’t inadvertently spend a fortune. Happily, an alternative is soon to wade into the cartoon-world-in-an-app-game market, as Fox and TinyCo bring us what is being dubbed Family Guy Tapped Out, due for release at the end of April.
For litigious reasons I wont be using the names of any of the companies responsible for the disgraceful levels of greed we see on our ever depleting high streets, but I think you’ll have all seen similar instances yourself. I am going to talk about the prices charged by game shops up and down the country, and why they seem unable to grasp the delicate balance that their industry sits on.
