South Park: The Stick Of Truth IS FINALLY HERE

After a long and arduous ordeal, Matt & Trey's ultimate South Park video game is finally here. Originally conceived years ago, The Stick of Truth was being developed by Ubisoft and was slated to be published by THQ. THQ, however, kinda just died. Legal red tape threw the development process while a new publisher was found, and after pushed-back release date after pushed-back release date, today, March 4th, is the day the game can finally debut without further ado. I've been playing it a bit since this afternoon, and it truly is like playing an episode of the show. It's a turn-based RPG, and surprisingly, it works really well with the medium. I'm admittedly not very well versed in turn-based RPGs, but this one is proving to be pretty fun. The official launch trailer was debuted last night during a special live-tweeted showing of the "Black Friday" episode trilogy. The very last scene of the Game of Thrones-spoof famously referenced the game and after the banner displaying "Coming Soon" appeared on screen, Butters said "yeah and if you believe that I've got a big floppy wiener to dangle in your face." The trailer:  The Stick of Truth is available now for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
