Gil’s Back in Town! A new Halloween Promo is here!

Just as most of the citizens of our virtual world’s are hitting up the “Official” Halloween Headquarters to pick through the scarce supply of last-minute Halloween costumes, an old familiar face has come back to town. Springfield’s fair weathered friend Gil Gunderson comes with a treat of his own, or perhaps it’s a trick? Of course it’s certainly not any of value that would actually benefit the residents in their frantic last-minute quest to find costumes for the kid’s candy crusades or the adult’s after-hours soiree. It wouldn’t be worthy of Gil’s efforts to offer something useful now would it?

What Gil brings to the table for his first ever Halloween Gil Deal would be perfectly useful should you happen to be, I don’t know, Beelzebub perhaps? Maybe a hell raising knave? Or just a tapper like me who has to buy everything EA puts in front of my face. Good ol’ Gil has been to some dark places in his lifelong quest for simple, basic things like groceries, a bed to lay his head on, hell even just a hot meal. This special Halloween Gil Deal comes to us from one of those dark places and it just so happens to actually do more for you than lower your donut count as Gil’s “deals” so thoughtfully always do.

The Sepulcher of Evil is what’s on tap with Gil’s latest offer for the “one called Sky Finger” and as usual, Gil really, REALLY needs you to buy it. Better keep reading after the jump to check out this Halloween treat.

Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday Dear……..!!!!!

I apologize for the late timing of this article but where I live it is still Ocotber 24. I’d like to ask all of you to join me in wishing the most happiest birthday ever to Topix’s very own human machine, admin, YouTuber, nerd of all things animation/gaming/stuff and most of all, very dear friend, LetsplaynintendoITA! 

cake-happy-birthday-simpsonsLPN or G as he is known to me and Emma is without a doubt the most significant contributor or Topix and the reason we still remain a strong source of all things Tapped Out and The Simpsons. To be quite honest, without the incredible hard work and dedication put forth by him we may have closed shop months ago. Not because the site as a whole has failed at anything, certainly the opposite. But because that pesky thing known as life tends to grow and branch out in ways that result in less time available to commit to one thing. His appointment of site writer and later, admin was the fresh breath of new life we needed to keep the wheels turning for all of you who seek insight on our beloved game.

I don’t want to get all gushy, emotional and cheesy, well any MORE gushy, emotional and cheesy than I already have but G, from me, Emma and all of our dear, dedicated readers and Tappers, Happy Birthday my friend!!!!! It is an absolute pleasure to have added you as a part of Topix and more importantly as part of our lives.

Bart Chalkboard BirthdayThank you for all that you do, it is impossible to ever come even close to repaying the commitment you have giving to this incredible journey.
