    Obsidian's Next RPG Revealed

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news...South-Park-RPG

    I know, it says that it's only for 360 & PS3, but based on Obsidian's history, I'd be extremely surprised if it wasn't released on PC as well.

    Weird, weird news.

    Actually, before this, they're working on a Wheel of Time RPG.

    Game Informer confirmed it's for PC as well.

    Obsidian's not writing it, so I'm not interested.

    This sounds immensely batshit insane but also sounds sort of interesting because of that.
    Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

    You mean we only get Obsidian's legendary bug-free code, combined with a story that someone else is writing, based on a cartoon I stopped watching a few years ago?

    Where do I sign up?

    South Park is very poor nowadays, even by their own standards.

    I thought Dungeon Siege 3 wasn't buggy.
    And come on, it's a Flash RPG. How much can they screw it up?...

    So, this is a game based on a perhaps overly-long running cartoon by a developer with noted inability on the technical side of things (but good writers), published by a company with some recent commercial failures and a shocking stance to DLC?

    This sounds like it'll be amazing.

    It's an IP I imagine they can be given quite a lot of creative freedom with, but I can't say that it makes me particularly excited. If it's a good game then I'll play it.

    Can't say I'm interested in this one beyond the accademic, and I'm usually a fan of Obsidian. I wonder if we're talking full price or digital download only kind of thing.

    At least you understand that Obsidian absolutely sucks at creating RPGs.

    But will it be better than the South Park FPS?

    That's as maybe, but they're great at making the sort of games I want to play, that belong in that nebulous definition graveyard where a lot of games look alike but nobody can ever really agree on what they're called. And one of their big strengths is writing, so it's a bit silly that they aren't getting to do that. Why else would anyone get them to make the game?

    Ah, haven't played that one so I'll take your word for it.

    As far as the flash thing, I'm really hoping that that is a second, concurrent project. Can you even "compile" flash games to run natively on Xbox and PS3? I know you can for iOS, but beyond that ...

    Nop, they're pretty good at it actually
    NWN2 and KotOR II, both great RPGs

    Second? Obsidian's a bit bigger than that ;) This is probably a small team in a corner.

    NWN2 is mediocre while KotOR II is one of the worst I've ever played.
