South Park sticks to the truth

South Park sticks to the truth

After Watch_Dogs, another highly anticipated Ubisoft game must be delayed in order for the dev team to make sure it will please the fans. South Park: The Stick of Truth will only be released on March 6 in Europe, so presumably March 4 in North America. Here is the first gameplay trailer to ease the wait.

If this is representative of the whole game... then I'm gonna buy this.
This game seems thousand times more enticing than 99% of videogame titles out there or on the horizon (excluding Dark Souls 2, Mount & Blade: Bannerlord, Deep Down, i.a.).

Why is this game getting ignored? there's real potential with it..and its clearly nailed the humour of the tv show. The biggest thing going for it and the biggest thing going against it is Obsidian - great at telling stories, less great at offering polished bug free games

the only disappointing thing is that it's turn based gameplay

But looks really fun, and stupid

The biggest thing going against it is that it's being developed by one of the best Western RPG devs? I think they'll be fine.

Their Bethesda games are no more buggy than Bethesda's games.

I love that you can aim your farts.

This is going to be great. Surprisingly reminds me of Double Fine's Costume Quest, but this is Obsidian so I'm guessing the combat will be a bit deeper.

Have you spent considerable time with Bethesda's games? They're all a hot mess.

skyrim and fallout 3. There's bugs and glitches sure..but nothing compared to Fallout vegas - game breaking bugs that have been well documented. And it's also not like Obsidians lack of quality control is restricted to Bethesda games is it. Did you ever play Alpha protocol? star wars knights of the republic 2? both also have a well documented lack of polish when it comes to bugs and glitches.

So like I said... the biggest thing going for it and going against it is the studio behind it. Why you're offended by that when you state yourself that they're no worse than Bethesda...yet then follow by saying Bethesda's games are a hot mess, only you know.

Just... I mean... there are no game breaking bugs in Bethesda games? COME ON! And that last sentence... lol... what?

KOTOR2 had massive development issues. New Vegas? New Vegas was fine. Compared to an ordinary Bethesda release.

I think Obsidian is the reason this is interesting. Not a cause for concern.

Gonna have to agree with Grift here. Obsidian is a big plus, as is the direct involvement of Matt and Trey. Those two points are basically what makes me confident that this will at the very least be a fun/interesting experience.
Commented on 2013-11-03 22:11:41
what exactly are you agreeing with Grift about? to agree to something you have to disagree to something else...and nobodies said Obsidians not a big plus going for the game?

But my concern is that Obsidian don't have the greatest track record when it comes to releasing bug free experiences. And when the only argument against that is they offer no worse a buggy experience than Bethesda's own games which are described as a "hot mess"..well gee, even if that was the case its hardly an argument for comfort is it?

As for Vegas being "fine" compared to an ordinary? (lets say fallout 3) release? no..not really. But like I said, that was all well documented at the time. KOTOR2 had development issues?..well thank god southparks developments been smooth. And Alpha protocol? probably time restraints, I don't know.

Welcome to the internet folks.. where people say shit for the sake of saying shit.
Commented on 2013-11-03 22:13:13
You're definitely saying a lot of shit.

And he's agreeing that Obsidian is no cause for concern. That was kind of obvious.
Commented on 2013-11-03 22:47:48
heh am I? if you say so honey pie. I'm not saying that southparks going to be a "hot mess" (I really hope its not). Just that Obsidian don't have the greatest track record..which isn't opinion its kinda fact. But if you tell me that's not a valid concern then fine.. you've argued your point well.

Yes. I have. You probably think that calling me "honey pie" and treating the entire conversation like it's ridiculous is really good point making too.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: For Mario you have time until September. :-) (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Nah not those turn based JRPGs. Combat needs to be real time for me in any RPG. I just can't get into turn based battles. (1 Hour ago)
