The epic quest begins. Finally...
After a seemingly endless amount of delays, South Park: The Stick of Truth, arguably the last really big last gen exclusive you'll see, is FINALLY out for PS3 and 360. Of course after all the delays and hype, the real question is: Is it actually any good? I'd say if you are looking for a deep involved rpg on the same level of games like Fallout: New Vegas, this might not be it. If you are looking for a hilariously accurate representation of South Park wrapped in a light fun rpg system this'll be right up your alley. I'm several hours in enjoying the hell out of it and I'm really more of a casual fan of show, occasionally watching it on Hulu. I hadn't even seen the trilogy of episodes that lead into the game until about a week ago (which were great). I'm not a huge fan of gross out humor and I've heard there's plenty. But there also plenty of brilliant subtle things about kids playing fantasy and rpg tropes that have continuously made me laugh along with not particularly deep but well-balanced fund battles against elves, rats, hobos and Mongolians. Bottom line if you even remotely enjoy South Park, you should have no hesitation in picking up this wonderful bit of fan service. And it's not bad as a fun little rpg either.
here for the newly revealed Batman: Arkham Knights trailer. I own Origins, but have barely played it, it just hasn't really grabbed m. But all the new info on this supposedly final installment (I can virtually guarantee it's not the last "Batman" game, probably the last one with the name "Arkham" though) is really positive such as that there is no forced awful multi-player and that it's being developed only for next-gen consoles means no compromises to make it a similar experience on last-gen consoles. This actually might make me interested enough to get through Origins and finally gives me a next-gen solo title to look forward to besides The Order: 1886.
That's really all for today, I should get another post up in the next couple of days, most likely a gamer cinema.
