    The game might be targeted to people who don't like RPGs but it's turn-based, guys! Turn-based! TURN-BASED!

    Seriously, turn-Based for the codex is like VISCERAL for the masses. It's turn-based, so it's awesome.

    Doesn't matter that it's simplistic JRPG combat with some QTE thrown in, it's turn-based! You take turns attacking each other!

    That Costume Quest combat looks awful but Paper Mario combat is great, with a lot more variety and decisions.

    I have full faith that Obsidian will pull off Costume Quest combat.

    So Jews are Paladins that require 2x as much of a reward to do quests rather than doing it for free?

    :hmmm:

    Whatever... I am just annoyed by the permabutthurt mode. Whetever's the news you can count half of the Codex will come whining to the heavens about most mundane things. It's always: 'Yes, but it still will be shit, because...'.

    Man, I cannot get that so excited about computer games that I go into nerd frenzy, anymore.

    :(

    Halp!

    From nerds who make themselves feel better about being losers by deluding themselves that they have a monopoly for playing slightly complex games or having hobbies.

    Probably too early in development. Skyrim's GI preview didn't have videos I don't think.

    They'll probably show off gameplay vids at E3.

    At best I'm hoping for a fun game like plants vs zombies, but no real RPG.
    But those QTEs, like in the Costume Quest game, look like real cock blockers.

    Looks like a fun game, don't see what the problem is. Hope it does not suck.

    VD made a good point earlier, that the game is unlikely to feature some of the things that Obsidian does well.

    Still, I'm looking forward to this for the simple reason that I like South Park and still, it's not some obscure company that does this.

    If the story and lulz are good and the mechanics are not total shit, I'll buy this, if only to support obsidian.

    The only thing I liked was that equipment is supposed to last some time. I hate the "phat lewt instant gratification" mechanic.
    Still not optimistic.

    Obsidian hasn't been Obsidian for a decade. People need to realize this.

    Turn-based combat doesn't say much to me. It can be shit. I mean I love Gothic, and that's action based.
    And they went for the paper mario style combat with the unnecessary timed button pressings and shit.
    It can prove to be totally boring and non strategical.

    Upgradable weapons and scarce loot? That does sound promising though.
    I'm fucking sick of games nowadays giving you constant loot wherever you go.
    Skyrim is a perfect example.

    What I really want to see is how the exploration is going to be handled, and how detailed it's going to be.
    If they do that right, I might have to get this game.
    But not to play as an RPG mind you. More because I can't miss a game where I get to explore South Park, if it's handled well.

    Actually Obsidian has always been Obsidian. It has never been Troika or even BIS, that is what people need to realize...

    That's what counts. Also, character skill over player skill. You know, like Dungeon Siege.

    This description doesn't reall apply to anyone on the codex of which I know anything about. Apart from possibly Volly. Many Scandinavians might be pale though.

    That depends on how you define a company. It IS a fact that the majority of the big people from Post Fallout Black Isle ARE or WERE at Obsidian.


    Also theres really not much difference between these two companies. (Except they were allowed to make (at least) RTWP rpgs)

    Because let's be honest.

    Fallout 2
    Planescape Torment
    Icewind Dale Series

    ALL of those games were incredibly flawed too.

    It seems that a lot of Codexers is suffering from the Black Cat Syndrome, though :) .
