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.

Uh…did this really need its own thread? There have only been, what, five or six South Park games? (Not counting FBW.) I mean, if you’re desperate for activity here, you could at least make a thread for a certain genre or company. An FPS thread might actually be interesting, in that we could discuss genre conventions and new entries (good or bad). What the hell is there to discuss about South Park games—that Stick of Truth is the only good (currently published) South Park game?

So apparently some places are still getting censored versions of the game like before. Will you be able to get around it by buying it on places like Steam?

Depends on the reasons and who's behind the delay. If its Trey and Matt then maybe they've got more content they wish to add or refine.

Its like everyone was so sure Clinton won that they never expected Trump to come to power.

Even South Park is scrambling to reshuffle the plot compared to what they had previously been work towards.

Does anyone have any thoughts/feelings on them switching from one-off episodes to these plot 'arcs' spanning swathes of seasons?

Yeah, the ad revolution and PC stuff was brilliant, but this one is kinda flat.
The season before last also had issues.

This is more /co/ discussion that /cog/ discussion now, BTW, buuuuuuuuuuuut…

The problem of the show’s season-long arcs ultimately lies in Trey and Matt’s attempts to mix self-contained stories in with the season-long arcs. They want to do the “we can make an episode about this in six days” social commentary of a stand-alone episode, but still fit it into a complex storyline. The PC Principal season’s finalé fell flat for that exact reason: Rather than feeling like a solid climax to a season-long storyline with all the dramatic payoff therein, it tried to be a climax to both the complex arc and the stand-alone episode — and it failed on both levels.

>South Park: The Fractured but Whole has been delayed again, according to Polygon. This comes after the game was originally delayed from its Dec. 6, 2016 release date to Q1 2017. The game is now expected to arrive some time between March 2017 and April 2018 - Ubisoft's upcoming fiscal year. South Park: The Fractured but Whole is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

As someone else said, this might be because Trump won the election and fucked up all their plans. Maybe they had to go rewrite the game's script, which would mean creating new assets (animation, voice acting) to match, which would then mean a whole new slew of Q&A testing and whatnot. While a "South Park" episode can be made in six days or less, a video game like "The Fractured But Whole" cannot.

Tried starting a second playthrough as a female to see if there's any notable changed dialogue.

While the game is great its not something you can really playthrough twice, stalled somewhere in the middle.

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.

The election really messed them up. Both the lead up and the results.
