South Park’s German Version Delayed Due To The Nazis

By John Walker on March 5th, 2014.

Here’s a very odd thing. South Park: The Stick Of Truth will not be available in Germany or Austria on Friday after all. Because Ubisoft left the swastikas in. A note on the German Steam page for the game states, “The Stick of Truth contains an unconstitutional symbol which means that we are unfortunately not able to release the game on the German and Austrian market at this time.” Which is all the more odd, since Ubi told VG247 last week that they were already on top of this.

Sith and Make Up

By Kieron Gillen on October 30th, 2007.

For those wondering if it’s abstractly possible for a developer to be owned by the largest third-party publisher in the world yet still be involved in Indy game development, then we have an answer for your troubled brow: Yes! Abstractly. If they make an Indy game*, anyway. Which they won’t. It’ll be Star Wars again, and everyone knows it.

You'll have your eye out, and no mistake.

It seems that Electronic Arts purchasing Bioware (and Siamese-twin developers Pandemic) recently hasn’t put an end to their long standing relationship with Lucasarts. Bioware and Lucasarts have announced they’re working together on an undisclosed game. What sort of game will this be? Our inside sources (that is, sources inside our head) tell us that it will prominently feature graphics and sound and gameplay. It will also come out on the PC, as we’re perennially optimistic. And for a more serious educated guess: A Star Wars MMO from their Austin Studio, maybe? And for further baseless speculation, head thee to the comment thread.

Wolfenstein of Honor

By Alec Meer on August 24th, 2007.

I’m reviewing Medal of Honor: Airborne (it’s for someone else, so thoughts on it another time – briefly though, it’s pretty good, pleasingly non-linear but fairly silly).

I just stumbled across this.

It’s a Nazi Super-Soldier. In Medal of Honor. Gas mask, experimental chaingun and everything. He took about six grenades to kill. I can’t stop laughing.
