Season 13 Episode 5.
There. A topical post.
Obsidian, whyyy?! I know developers need money, but still...
South Park has been subpar for the past 3 or 4 seasons.
However, this season has been very, very good. I don't know if Trey and Matt were reinvigorated by their Tony win, but there were a bunch of episodes this season on par with anything they've ever done.
Er.... anyway... is South Park still going? I remember kind of enjoying it when I was in University - FOURTEEN YEARS AGO! Good grief now i feel old.... *cries*
ahem, anyway, I haven't seen or heard anything about South park for at least the last 5 years. I honestly assumed it ended about 8 years back.
On a at-least-slightly-related topic - if Obsidian are working on a Wheel of Time RPG - has anyone read the last 2(?) Wheel of Time novels? Like most people, I got bored around book 4, but powered my way through to about 8 or 9. Then the guy kicked the bucket and I never heard whether it's worth going back for the last 2 to find out how it all ends. and whether I wasted all that time.
On the plus side, if the Wheel of Time RPG ends abruptly and nonsensically, it might not be Obsidian's fault for once.
I still very much enjoy South Park.
After waning by season 7 or 8, it changed up its format, ditched the tired Kenny gag, introduced and reinforced several supporting characters and became a really good satirical show. It has good and bad episodes but as a whole it has aged much more gracefully than either The Simpsons or Family Guy.
South Park has honestly matured, not spoiled. This season alone has given us the surprisingly moving mid-season finale "You're Getting Old", which had such a strong sense of finality to it that people wondered if it really was the show's swansong.
Plus I appreciate that it's the only animated show which can be as topical as it is - because of the simple style they animate in a few days what would take other shows months to put together, so they can react to current news while it's still current. 15 seasons in and it's still on my regular watch list.
But having confessed all that, I still can't bring myself to get excited for this game. It just sounds a terrible idea. :(
One of those ideas that is crazy enough that it just might work. I like Obsidian and I like South Park, they sound like a complete mis-match, but it can't be any worse than the South Park fps released on the N64 back in the day, with its yellow snowballs.
I agree that NWN2 OC wasn't the most amazing campaign, but Mask of the Betrayer story-wise and character-wise was very good. NWN2 is probably the game I've played most out of any game of all time, due to the Pw scene.
Your entire argument around RPGs stems from deriving your definition from an entirely different medium: the PnP RPG. Then you dismiss story by saying another medium does it better.
I honestly don't see the appeal of just replicating PnP RPG on a computer, if I want that experience, I can just go and play D&D. Games like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc at least give me experiences I can't get anywhere else other than videogames.
1) CRPGs can have far more complex rules than pen and paper RPGs.
2) Playing a CRPG is much more convenient and requires a lot less organisation.
That said, their latest season's been great. The Last of the Meheecans is one of my favorites.
We get it. You don't like current RPGs. We got that message months ago. If that's your sole contribution, congratulations. Mission accomplished. Message received. Go away now.
Hey guys, did you know that Obsidian is making a South Park RPG? shocking news, eh?
