NeuroHeart wrote:Got a call from GameStop the other day, reminding me that I had pre-ordered Stick of Truth and that it was coming out next month. Having gone through four release dates now, I had to ask the nice girl if she was trolling me. She was very sincere in her assurances that it was really coming out this time. (But I heard such assurances back in October, too.)
I went into the store over the weekend for something else, and there's this big pretty display advertising the game, and literally as I walked in their in-store TV started talking about Stick of Truth. I stood there pouting for a little while, with the voice of Butters in my head saying, "Yeah, and if you believe that, I've got a big floppy weiner to dangle in your face."
(I knew this was going to happen. I knew they shouldn't have announced a release date less than a year away when they started talking about it. Being too eager to release a game just leads to pushback after pushback until everyone is all pissed off.)
Also, there seems to be no indication that it will be available for the new systems that most people will want to be playing on. That's probably going to hurt them just as much as all the delays have.
The install base for the 360 and PS3 still dwarfs their newer cousins by a considerable margin, and until this holiday season if you want a game that will make money you put it on those instead of the new consoles.
Game will be great. I have seen it with mine eyes and the glory is glorious.
Yes, I could use various means to go around it but really its ridiculous.
I might actually have this thing in my hands tomorrow.
Not that I can play it right away. Stupid physics exam.
Sweet game so far, then again, I have nothing to compare it too lol.
I ship: Stan/Cartman <3
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.
Although that damned Hall Monitor Boss kicked my rear, time for take 2.
I only have a few hours under my belt, but I'm enjoying the shit out of this game. I love exploring the town and the game pays some serious respect to the show's canon. Turn on a radio, and there's Fatass singing one of his many songs. Collecting Chinpokomon? Yes, I will! The few side missions I've done are solid episode references and that's cool.
I thought I laughed hard when I figured out I can fart at will. (Not our will )
Then I was introduced to farting as a weapon and that was just awesome.
I'm also impressed with how much original content the guys created for the game. My last point of reference was the Tower Defense game on XBL a few years back. There, most of the dialogue was just clipped from episodes. Here they did all sorts of great new stuff with the entire cast, far as I can tell.
Now that my thumb is rested, I think it's time to get back to it! (Seriously, my right thumb got stiff last night. Probably had something to do with me not being around my Xbox for a while and snow removal activities earlier in the day.)
You read it! You can't unread it!
I want SO MUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCH liberate Quebec from Evil Canada prince !
haha And BEST GAME OF THE YEAR material !!! Add GOOD dlc ( imagination land dlc :O:O:O:O ? ) and some this year. And you win Game of the year !
If you want me to do a signature for you, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
For the first time in my life, I want to defeat Al Gore. (But haven't). Anyone just getting started; don't start the ManBearPig mission right away or you get Al Gore's constant spam in your Facebook-allegory.
I could beat Al Gore no problem, but those goddamn secret service agents are basically invincible. That's way too tough for a side mission.
You read it! You can't unread it!
I waited til the end to finish some side missions
Right now, it's either him...or back into the sewers (I'm missing one of the shitters/hankey's kids).
Some minor dissapointments. I wanted to FIGHT the Crab People, not friend them Also there's no Satan/Sadam Also no Mecha-Streisand. Oh, and the Hells Pass Hospital isn't there. I also wish I could visit more houses like Clyde, Craig, and Tweeks. Would have loved to visit the Holiday Crap hotel. Also wish there was Imaginationland, or the Angels in Heaven battle. I mean, I know not EVERYTHING could be done in this, but I feel as if a little more could have been done, because yea the game is a quick finish.
