I have to be honest with you. I know nothing about South Park. Still, the four hours I had time to play were so fun that I clearly intend to complete the game as soon as I can. South Park: The Stick of Truth is incredibly faithful to the TV show, but it doesn't forget to be a video game. Take a look at all our HQ videos from the PC version and tell us what you think. Note: On PC framerate is locked at 30 fps, which makes sense considering how the series is animated.
As a role playing game, South Park: The Stick of Truth does a great job, although RPG fans will probably think 12 to 15 hours to complete is a bit short for the genre. Still, for a South Park episode, you have to admit it's a pretty long ride to experience. Gameplay mechanics are solid, humor is "South Parkish" (which basically means you'll either love it or hate its guts) and in the end it's a really awesome game. Sure, loading screens could have been less frequent (they happen every time you enter a building, even on PC, and it gets old quite fast), but other than that it looks and sounds just like it should. Obsidian did the best of job, which can't have been easy with the bankrupt of THQ about a year ago. Thankfully, Ubisoft was there to keep the ship afloat and I think fans will be grateful. As a non fan of the show, I really enjoyed my time with the game, the only problem I had with it was that it made me realise I really should have watched the show all these years. I can't help but regret not being able to get all the tongue-and-cheeks references, but then again, it won't prevent me from playing. Yes indeed, that's how good the game is.
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (1 Hour ago)
put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (3 Hours ago)
Prey, just reminded me when i used to lure headcrabs/zombies in Half-Life 1 (1%Hp/Suit), to lasers and eletrick shock cables to zap'em withou loss of ammo. It's like we needed a whole generation to (3 Hours ago)
Stranger Things is such a amazing show! Just finished season 2, episode 7 (I won't post spoilers). (3 Hours ago)
I mean, didn't you just buy an X to play the same games with better visuals? Your stance doesn't really seem very consistent tbh. (3 Hours ago)
If you have no Interest in either of those things your only option is to move onto some other hobby. Because you're not going to see any mainstream Dev making something truly unique...ever. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: whether I sound like a snob or not. It's the truth. The industry is all about playing it safe now. If your after original experiences you have 2 options. Indie or VR (usually also indie) (3 Hours ago)
