Thank you for the links, funcroc. ;)

 

The vampire keeps resurrecting his pals, though, so only one ultimate attack can finally stop them for good: MacLean summons "Wrecked 'Em," in which Mr. Slave swoops in, jumps on the vampire leader's head, and...uh...does to him what he has previously done to gerbils on the show. If that doesn't make sense, try this. Talk about a, um, climax.
I hadn't watched this episode, which is, indeed, heavily inspired by dungeon crawlers.

 

After showing him the sights, Cartman prompts the new kid for his name, which allows the player to enter whatever they wish. No matter what is entered, Cartman responds with

The Verge/Polygon E3 preview

 

You could find South Park: The Stick of Truth in the back corner of Microsoft's Xbox 360 Showcase event, with project director at Obsidian Entertainment Zane Lyon speaking into a microphone at three rows of seated viewers watching the demo with headphones on.

 

Elsewhere in the showcase, demos happened without the necessity of headsets. The Gears of War: Judgement multiplayer area had no such formality, nor did the Fable: The Journey setup. But for South Park: The Stick of Truth, it's all about presentation.

 

"This is the most authentic South Park game ever produced," Lyon told us, adding with not a little amount of pride, "This is all in-engine [graphics], no video."

NZGamer preview

 

Not to worry, NZGamer.com managed to secure access to a VIP Microsoft event where the lead developer and producer from Obsidian were showing off small scenes of what they've made so far. The title is, of course, still in its early stages so we were forbidden from taking any pictures. But the memory is a powerful thing, and there was enough on offer for us to get a general idea of how South Park is shaping up.

Are there any gameplay scenes already, other than what can be seen in the trailer?

So did Jew get cut, renamed, or just not present for the demo?

Pre-order exclusives for Xbox 360. :banghead:

 

Sad thing is that some of those things, I was hoping to see in the game.

No matter what you say your name is, Cartman will call you Douchebag. This is the perfect way to bypass an annoying game design problem

THQ's teams will be given the resources to thrive, says new president (Gamasutra)

 

To Rubin, that so many E3 attendees are excited about Bethesda's South Park: Stick of Truth RPG in an environment where Halo, Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed are driving anticipation for the latest sequels speaks to the appetite for new things. The company's games are being favorably received by the consumer press at E3, he says.

If It get's them Bethesda type sales I don't think anyone will mind.

 

Is the name fixed or will you be able to select it ? Douchebag while initially funny seems like it will get old fast. As well as be more suited to Cartman than the other guys. "New Kid" would be a much better choice I think at least in the long term.

As your character progresses, the title changes from Douchebag to Butthole. Apparently the whole point is for your character to attain the "cool" status. Hence the tag "The quest to be cool."

South Park: The Stick of Truth received the best E3 RPG award from IGN! @Obsidian_Ent @THQ @SouthPark http://t.co/YuJxcXTS

 

 

GameSpy's Best of E3 2012 Awards

South Park: The Stick of Truth - Best RPG

Developer: Obsidian Games

Publisher: THQ

 

Cartman's special attack involves pulling down his pants, farting, and setting an enemy on fire. Eating Cheesy Poofs restore your health. Enemies are called "douchey vampire kids." Yep, this is definitely a South Park RPG -- and it's unlike any RPG we've heard of. At E3 this year it became much clearer just how much potential it has to completely nail the look and feel that's made South Park a pop-culture staple since 1997, and how damn funny it is (assuming you're a South Park fan). Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Obsidian have done some great work to bring the world of South Park to life, and really makes it feel like you belong in this small mountain town. It's a no-brainer as our favorite RPG of E3.

It does kind of remind me of Costume Quest. Is it turn based? Because from the layout of the field it seems to be that way.

 

They have the same inspiration regarding combat. Paper Mario.

 

It's turn-based with timed button presses to make attacks stronger/defend.

Just like Costume Quest then :) I'm definately going to buy this now.
