South Park: The RPG
« on: December 01, 2011, 01:09:44 PM »
I actually think this will be funny as long as Parker and Stone keep the focus on the light-hearted and wacky angle of south park and not the political or pop culture riffing.

Am I crazy in thinking this has potential? I think the visual style of south park would lend itself nicely, and seeing P&S are involved closely is a plus..

On the subject of Obsidian, what ever happened to that Wheel of Time RPG they were supposed to be developing last year?  Did that get canned?

They probably realized that story doesn't lend itself to games and gave up

No, I'd say that based on the dev structure of smaller companies that it's something we'd see in 2013.  They were announced as a "Development Partner" in early 2010.  That doesn't necessarily mean that anything was started.

Obsidian's games seem to have good content, but the mechanics and technical aspects aren't that good.  If Parker and Stone are handling the writing, that leaves Obsidian to handle the mechanics and technical aspects.  Oh well, I'm sure it'll still be a blast.

To be honest, it's no weirder than Bioware's Sonic RPG.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

That's true and that turned out to be enjoyable right ?
I think I south park RPG has more potential. With as little information as possible, I can see a game like Costume Quest.

If it's as good as most of the other stuff Obsidian's made, I'll love it. I'll probably end up playing it with my dad and we'll make non-stop Jew jokes for a month.
If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

How old is South Park? Because I remember one game of N64 of the series. Kinda makes me feel old, heh.
