South Park: The Stick of Truth Released

South Park is back again with The Stick of Truth. Tweeters have been raving on Ubisoft's newest release.

It is the day of release for South Park: The Stick of Truth by Ubisoft and Obsidian Entertainment. With midnight releases in play, Twitter has buzzed with gamers all over getting into game and sharing first impressions. Some have even been live-streaming their game play.

So far, based off Twitter feeds, The Stick of Truth is awesome. Several f-bombs have accompanied the tweets on gameplay (in good ways). Since there was a review embargo in place, the initial review that was constantly linked up is IGN's review by Ryan McCaffrey, though several tweeters are promising reviews in the next few hours.

With South Park available on Windows and older generations of Xbox and PlayStation (the 360 and 3, respectively), initial sales numbers are uncertain. While some who have upgraded to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may have kept their older consoles, it is possible that several did not and thus far, are unable to play the game on a console. They either have to play on PC or not play at all.

South Park: The Stick of Truth seems to be a winner for both Ubisoft and Obsidian Entertainment this year. There are some tweeters already proclaiming it game of the year. It will be interesting to see what the user reviews will reveal over the coming days.

Will you be picking up The Stick?

    I'm not a big SP fan, but watching people playing last night was funny.

    I got to play about 20 minute of it last night. It's as if Matt and Trey thought of every single possible thing, its hard to explain. One example though, Matt and Trey mentioned they hate games that make you say things that you would never say. Therefore your character never speaks in game. They did this so that you, the player, can say what you would actually say. This happened to me in the first twenty minutes. Cartmans mom was sitting on the couch watching TV. I noticed I could turn off the TV. So I said out loud in my room, "F*** you Ms. Cartman, you can't watch TV". Turned off the TV and walked out the house. F'in genius.

    That's definitely an interesting idea by the developers.
