TB Asylum Challenge

Postby goeswithoutsinging » December 27th, 2015, 12:37 am

The TB Asylum Challenge is an Asylum Challenge (natch) that I'm recording on tumblr, with the "gimmick" being that the sims are based off of Batman characters from the 2004-2008 cartoon. Contains idle observation, explanations of the game mechanics for that one friend of mine who reads this but doesn't play the Sims 2, a little bit of playing fast and loose with the rules, and some swearing. Each day in-game is recorded in its own separate entry, making for numerous short updates.

You can either go through the thing chronologically HERE or you can skip around entries from the list below.

Oooh, I'm loving the short and snappy updates. :)

Spoiler:
But ouch 11 days without finding the Education career. That smarts. :lol: Glad you finally got that.

I love your narration, it's really dry and witty and all I want in a sims story tbh. I love Day 10 in general, because the inmates are achieving so much (Go Harley!) :,) And the poor delivery woman. It's okay, Delivery Woman, I ship you with Penguin. One day he'll reciprocate your love. And arguing over airplanes. Nice. I did read the previous chapters but didn't read and make commentary. I did give you a follow + likes on a couple of chapters, though. :yes: I didn't want to like them all, in case that looked creepy :shifty:

Day 11
And damn, what's Oswald doing to get himself being strangely popular. Should ask for tips :lol: You've got to admire the determination of the Hobby Leaders, entering insane asylums to admit the members into their Hobby Clubs. I hope Bruce has fun at work :,)

Day 12
Joker's laughing face, Christ. Spare me. That's terrifying :lol:
Oh, I love how Gossip spreads in TS2 :,) Poor Edward, you burn grilled cheese once and everyone's talking about it for the next 10 days, which is like 7 years or something in sims days. And choice cards, especially that one... ouch, I'm glad it timed out, maybe? Pff.
"KIRK. KIRK NO. WE DO NOT NEED THAT MUCH SPAGHETTI." :rotfl:
oOoh no Bruce don't diiii-
oh he's fine. Cool. Glad he had a nice nap.

Day 13
Image
I found this much funnier than I should've. I also loved Harley's Extreme Frown, but didn't know how to describe Penguin's nose so screenshotted that one instead. :shifty:
(On another note, do you have a download link for your Penguin? I think I need him in my life :lol: )
"which sort of makes me wonder what Kirk is hoping to accomplish here", I love the dryness of your narration. I know that I've said it already, but shout out. :lol:
How do you break a toilet AND a shower????? In one day???????????? Well done Joker.
Thanks for the beaky armpit pic, lol. Needed that.

Day 14
"40% Responsible Adult" same tbh
Aww. Ivy DOES look cute in the puffy jacket. Hi Ivy :wave:
"Saw First Snow" I forgot about that memory! How cute <3
Ouuuch, good luck repairing all of that Brucey.
Oooh, that makes me wonder, if it's snowing and your sim kids get a snow day, do your sim adults in the Education career get the day off too? :hmm:

Day 15
I FEEL THAT! Hobby chance cards are the worst.
Yay, well done on fixing the TV Bruce <3

Day 16
"Ivy, why so tsundere" :lol: :,)
Congrats on the promotion for being a hardass Bruce! <3 "He can, in fact, turn in the role sheet" Niiiice.
"Cry me a river, Eddie" :rotfl:
It was worth cheating for that picture of Penguin with a penguin tbh

Day 17
Shout out to the saddest snowman!! You're so determined and adorable!!!
Oh my god, everyone is DYING. This is TERRIBLE. Save them.
Oh, oh no :C Aw, I'm so sad they died. Why'd they have to go and start the fire whilst he was at work omg. 'Tis always the way but :,[ "Yay, nothing like chowing down on cheap delivery pizza in the ashes of your former kitchen and housemates." Ouch, those poor, poor Asylum members.
At least Penguin has been saved? I guess???????
Poor Kirk :( He's so sad.
Hopefully there's no vengeful ghosts, yes. Omg.

Day 18
I know what you mean! Phone stalkers! Christ. It was always Marsha Bruenig in neighbourhoods she was a townie in for me :lol:
His one true hobby is Science, aww.
"Total coincidence" of Ethan getting +5k aspiration points when watching the Joker cry.... niiiice XD
Aww, poor broody Family sim Bruce wants to go on a date. Let him date. :lol:

That was a suuuper fun read! I hope you keep updating! <3

In the mean time, here's an update I posted on tumblr a little while back!

I do plan on getting back to this soon, so do not worry. I am not so heartless as to leave these guys stuck here forever.

I must have missed this, because last time I read it, it was still ongoing. I loved watching Bruce plug his way through to the end, and the inmates just being themselves.

Congratulations! WOOT!

I think that's a good score, but what do I know? I rarely score anything, anyway. But it was FUN.
