South Park Gaming thread, from the new RPGs to the classic first-person shooter. All are welcome.
Personally I've gotten ridiculously hyped over Fractured But Whole, makes me keep browsing the same information about it over and over again. If anyone has something new then share it, need to scratch that itch.
I'd be hesitant to buy a third South Park RPG, because the endgame of Fractured But Whole was bad.
The rest of the game was fairly good, but the lame Cartman bullshit just dragged on and on and made the whole final part of the game deeply unsatisfying/tedious. The expansions stuff in comparison was good too.
Also the show has been pretty poor for awhile, the pair have lost their touch when it comes to writing.

>>202488 It's a free demo, you can just try it yourself. And there's also a benchmark http://benchmark.finalfantasyxv.com/na/ , which is a much smaller download. Both run pretty smoothly on my low-mid tier rig, but don't look too fancy.
So, what wasn't in the demo or benchmark was Denuvo which can downright kill your performance. That means the benchmark and demo are pretty worthless at giving you a preview of how the game will run on your PC. And also something that happens on every PC: Summoning breaks the game and it's stuck on 10-15 FPS until you restart it. Goddammit Squeenix.
Looks like Kaladesh is the artifact centric plane as we saw it in Origins. And Tezzeret is mucking about for reasons, so my bet is on Phyrexians in the second half. Poison counters plus Energy counters, oh my!
>>202296 I kinda take back what I said here after kinda calming down from my initial "they changed it so it sucks!" attitude. The combat and stat system is still very dumbed down in comparison to the previous game (which I know could even be a positive to some), but the improvements in writing, world-building and actual roleplaying opportunities make up for it. It's a really good game if you're not looking for strategic depth but rather a great world to explore full of little very memorable moments.
>>202254 I can see him showing up to try to actually fight "Terror Billy" accident get decapitated in some foolish manner or maybe by the daughter in a rage." And then the Scientist goes "quickly we needs to get the body stabilized."
"But we don't have the head."
"We won't be needing it."

>>201735 Having played it I still think it's only OK and mostly sustained by the incredible music. But Nier Automata seems to deliver much better in the emotions department due to better gameplay integration despite its plot being not as interesting.
The MIDI music in the game is just so much nicer to the ears than the official soundtrack, and it loops properly. Once I install a second operating system, I will try to manually record the game's music. And share it with you, of course.
