Oh My God, They Finished South Park: The Stick of Truth

The South Park game is actually finished. It's gone gold. For real. Publisher Ubisoft just announced that South Park: The Stick of Truth will actually be out on March 4, for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


Of course, this might still be a practical joke. After all the difficulties and delays, we might want to hold off on declaring Stick of Truth to be a real game until it's actually in our hands. Still, though. This is exciting.

Developed by Obsidian Games, the folks behind RPGs like Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol, South Park: The Stick of Truth looks and feels like a cross between South Park and Paper Mario, which basically makes it my fantasy game. I haven't been this excited for a new video game in a very long time.


I was actually a little surprised to see the preorders for 59.99. I thought it was going to be a cheaper digital release. I guess if people really love South Park it won't deter them but having been casually intrigued, that price point just killed my interest.

* to clarify, I'm in no way saying that because it's South Park it's shitty and should be cheaper. I wasn't following the development and assumed it was a shorter XBLA / PSN type game. I'm not sure I could handle a huge RPG in the South Park style, just personal preference.
