The Simpsons: Tapped Out Sound Notifications
I have a special place of disdain in my heart for games like Farmville. The Simpsons Tapped Out falls into that category. However, I do love The Simpsons so I thought I would try it out. It has some great original content but of course the whole point of the game is to buy donuts so you can build faster and do more things. Another money grab by EA. Oh well, that seems to be the way for these games and that is not what I am writing to complain about. Where my real gripe is with the sound notifications that come with the game that can’t be turned off. I’m also going to place a little bit of a blame on Android here because they also don’t provide an option to turn off sound notifications. Basically what happens is any time something completes in the game it pushes a notification and Homer chimes in with a little audio clip letting you know. This is a terrible feature. I don’t mind the notification the audio completely ruins the game and needs to be adjusted. I assume EA thinks it provides a higher level reminder for me to get back into the game and spend money, but all it’s done is made me uninstall the game. I try to like EA because I love some of their games (RE: The NHL Series) but they keep on disappointing and at some time in the future I am sure I am going to say enough is enough.
Please fix this EA, care about your customers for once.
