First images from the game.

Edit: Since it appears the site has actual scans of the GI magazine, I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to post that link. Please delete this post if it's not allowed.

Crab people spotted! (image 7)

This game has win written all over already.

I'm ambivalent about that. I would like to see Obsidian get paid for their work on South Park, on the other hand I always resented them for clinging on to the Games Worshop rights, never (and likely not intending to) making a game that would interest me. Selfish? Sure :thumbsup:

In this case it won't matter as long as the SP IP holders want the game mad eit will be made.

Would be a shame to lose THQ, Relic and Volition are great devs. Also enjoyed Metro and Darksiders.

The only company that might make a 40k RPG is EA. You want a Bio 40k RPG?

I've never watched an episode of South Park, so I'm not totally committed, but some of the stuff I've read about how they're handling the game sounds like it could be fun.

It appears that the Onyx engine can look exactly like the show, which is an impressive start, not so sure about the look of the combat, it seems more like a JRPG, not my cup of tea but I understand a huge amount of people go for it.


Based on what I read the combat is fairly similar to what is generally referred to as jRPG combat - the description makes it actually sound like ChronoTrigger a little bit ("monsters" on the field, you can choose to fight or not, combat is TB)

Of course the jRPG style combat is really similar to early US RPG game combat (like SSI's Phantasie) so...

I wonder if the trouble THQ are having will have any effect on this game. Things don't look very good for them. They have been laying off people as far as I know. Stock fell 35%...

Hard to say, some article I read said that they would run out of cash in early 2013. But if their 2012 releases fail badly, who knows. South Park itself has the potential to be a huge success for THQ (depending on the deal with South Park Studios & Obsidian ofc).

I thought the article mentioned it being a full title. And South Park is set to have a completely different game as a downloadable in the future.

I could try double checking. It does seem strange that we're looking at a sidescrolling game that uses turn-based combat as retail.

I doubt they would fail outright anyway, their market capitalisation is very low so they'd make a nice target for a competitor to buy- it would be less than 10%* what EA paid for Bioware/ Pandemic for example, and given that they could then rationalise the distribution side of things plenty of savings could be made.

*They'd have to take over the debt/ liabilities as well, presumably, which would up that.

the more we hear o' this, the more it sounds like a vanity project. the south park guys like video games and they thinks it would be kewl to makes a south park crpg. sure, south park is hardly having a natural setting for a crpg, the 2d pov is necessarily limiting, and there is no built-in rules mechanic to facilitate the development o' a combat system for a cartoon that didn't deal with combat save as sight gag shtick, but at least bioware isn't making it, right?

*snort*

am 100% in favor o' folks trying new and original, but this don't seem original so much as it just seems... stoopid.

HA! Good Fun!

It definitely sounds strange; and while I'm not sure its a vanity project the interview I read with the SP creators did sound a lot like "We like video games and wanted to do an RPG" kind of thing.

That said, it could be fun. Could also be a big mess. I'm hoping for fun though (and I say that as someone who has never watched an episode of South Park).
