If you're not familiar; it's a role-playing video game, which means you get to pick your own character class (I'm a thief!) and there's turn-based fighting. Normally that isn't a type of game to interest me, but for this I wanted to give it another shot. I'm glad I did, because it was waaay too much fun, and the ridiculous storyline was fun to follow. I'm not going to go into alot of detail about the game here; there's already hundreds of reviews about it floating around, but I thought it'd be fun to share some screenshots I took throughout the game.
Note: While these images aren't spoiling any main storyline bits, they're still shots from the game, so if you want the whole thing to be a surprise when you play it, look away!
My characters name wasn't actually Douchebag, but nicknames tend to stick, I guess.
Going undercover with my girls...
...which didn't end that great.
If you already know you're not a South Park fan, give this one a pass, this game isn't going to change your mind. Otherwise I definitely recommend this game! Hahah. Please don't get this for your kids though, you'll look like a shitty parent and people will look down on you. There were parts that even grossed me out. True story: my not-so-little brother (16) watches the show a little, here and there, and thought this game might be fun. Before playing, I didn't really think it could be worse than the show, but...that's just not true. Now I am 100% sure I wouldn't want him playing it - and I wanted to buy him Saints Row for Christmas, so that's saying something :(
So there's my not-review of South Park: The Stick of Truth. You can play it on PS3, Xbox 360, and Windows. Like I said, it just came out, so if you head over to a store to buy it it'll cost you about $60. For PC you can grab it on Steam (same price), or wait until the summer sale - I have a good feeling it'll make it to at least 50% off. Or you can do what I did and coughtorrentcough.
But you didn't hear that from me.
