South Park: The Stick of Truth (2014)

Be offended. It's great.




This week, we turn our attention to the flawlessly-animated but badly-loading South Park: The Stick of Truth, a game written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, designed by Obsidian Entertainment (that's right, the guys behind Fallout: New Vegas, amongst other classics), and published by Ubi. We have varying reactions to the various levels of abortion on display (no, that's not a metaphor), and our game-constrained abilities to save Randy from anal probing aboard spaceships that crash amidst Taco Bell construction coverups via rhythmn game mechanics – are thrown into question occasionally, but all in all, we are quite fond of the game, even those amongst us who somehow have missed out on all the South Park contributions to the cultural zeitgeist.
