Fart Bigger In South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park: The Fractured But Whole [official site] isn’t just content to offer up another round of hilarious role-playing, it will also be improving on the fundamentals of The Stick of Truth—including some pretty epic farts that can tear a hole in the time-space continuum. In a recently released developer diary, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone talk about their lessons learned and detail some improvements made to South Park’s turn-based combat.

Have You Played… South Park: The Stick Of Truth

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I don’t watch South Park anymore. I bought the first few ‘volumes’ on VHS back in my teenage years but I fell out of the habit of watching shortly after seeing the film at the cinema. It’s not that I have anything against the show – I don’t even keep up with the controversies or conversation around it so I have no idea if it’s still to my taste – I just haven’t made time for it in my life for a long time.

Obsidian’s game, though? I made time for that and I’m glad I did.

Steam Who? – Humble Bundle’s Spring Sale

Is there going to be a spring Steam sale? Or has Valve finally elected to give its wearied money counters – their abacuses gnarled and gnawed on, fear and desperation write large on waxen wood – a brief respite? I’m not entirely sure it matters now, though, as Humble has elected to fire the first shot with a sale of its own, and it’s off to a damn impressive start. Check it out for deep discounts on games like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Batman: Arkham Origins, Broken Age, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Thief. Tons more below.

South Park’s German Version Delayed Due To The Nazis

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.

Wot I Think – South Park: The Stick Of Truth

Almost two years late, and following a publisher change and multiple slips, Obsidian’s South Park: The Stick Of Truth is finally out this week. (Today in the States, Australia tomorrow, and Europe on Friday, because, sigh.) But has it been worth the wait? As ever, it’s complicated. Here’s wot I think:
