'The Stick of Truth' Is a 'South Park' Game That's Just Like The Show, For Real This Time

By Matt Hawkins

Ubisoft was in New York City yesterday, to show off their upcoming holiday offerings. Including the upcoming RPG based upon the hit Comedy Central show, "South Park: The Stick of Truth."

In the game, you assume the role as "the new kid" who has arrived in town just as a live action role playing game (or Larp) is playing out, one that’s pretty much taken over all of "South Park," which has gone all "Lord of the Flies" apparently.

So right off the back, you have to choose a side, one led by Kyle, or the other led by Cartman. In the demo, our silent protagonist is on Cartman's side, and I watched him infiltrate Kyle's territory, which is situated deep inside South Park Elementary.

In the process, we end up seeing a boss battle with Stan, fighting on the behalf of Kyle it would appear.

The Black Knight Rises - Monty Python with a Dark Knight Twist

This is a hilariously awesome piece of art called The Black Knight Rises, which gives the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail a little Dark Knight Rises twist. The art was created by Nathan Davis, and you can even get a t-shirt version of it if you want!

’Tis but a scratch! Not the scratch Gotham deserves, but the scratch it needs right now!

There was a time in my life when I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail at least once a week. It's been a few years since I've seen it, but this piece of art has inspired me to watch the awesomness again! I love how the artist utilized the killer rabbit.

Here are a couple of reminders of what inspired this art...

Dungeon Siege III preview

  • Shadowlocked
Be impressed. Be very impressed...

What happens when you mix one of the world’s leading developers of Western RPGs with the world’s leading publisher of Japanese RPGs and then let them loose on one of the most iconic action RPGs ever created? The answer to this equation is astounding; the answer is Dungeon Siege III.

Now it isn’t every day that you receive a very special treat like this, but when a producer from Obsidian Entertainment offers to perform their Gamescom presentation before the event has even kicked off, only a fool would turn the opportunity down. The inimitable Nathan Davis was in fine form as he showed off a game that represents a first in many respects. Not only is it the first time that Obsidian have worked with Square Enix, but it’s also the first Western RPG to be released under the Japanese giant’s banner.

Interview: 'Alpha Protocol'

The world of espionage is rather an overdone subject in entertainment. This murky field of subterfuge, dark glamour and, of course, murder is just perfect fodder for producers of video games and blockbuster movies. However, an RPG experience has yet to feature in the modern day spy game, but Obsidian Entertainment wants to change that with Alpha Protocol. Mixing third-person action with RPG mechanics, the game will allow players to solicit information, subvert dark forces and earn cash from all things espionage. Shaken or stirred, it's your choice. So Digital Spy broke cover with Obsidian's Nathan Davis to reveal the conspiracy behind Alpha Protocol. In the game, players take on the role of rogue agent Michael Thornton who has left the Alpha Protocol agency for some reason which will no doubt be explained in the main narrative. During the around 25 hours of gameplay, (more)

Preview: 'Alpha Protocol'

Quite fittingly for the shadowy world of espionage that it is set in, Alpha Protocol has rather slipped under the radar in gaming circles. Developed for Sega by Obsidian Entertainment, the game puts forward the interesting proposition of an RPG based around modern-day spying. In this, players will be thrust into a truly interactive world in which every choice they make really does mean life or death, for someone at least. So Digital Spy entered the special briefing room with Obsidian's programming producer Nathan Davis to have a sneak peak at a pre-beta build of this intriguing new title. In the game, players take on the role of Michael Thornton, who was formerly part of the Alpha Protocol agency before going rogue. The game focuses on four main hub locations - Taipei, Rome, Moscow and Saudi Arabia - which can be played in any order and skipped between at leisure.
