Anyone get this? One of the best rpgs ive played in awhile. This game is just hilarious , is such a homage to many of the jokes through the show's history (all seasons)  and the gameplay is so fun. The battle system is surpisingly strategic, fun,  and even deeper than something like an FF13 imo. Anyone else playing it? I cant stop laughing!!

I watched my buddy play through the first bit, looked pretty good, I'll have to get it after I'm done Dark Souls. Big Tall finished it already I think and I wanna say some other peeps have as well.

Loved all the little jokes and bits about all the things that have happened in various episodes over the years.

So addictive, I did everything you could in like, 4 days of it coming out. The last half of the game is the best. It starts out great, but then really just takes it to another level. 

The gameplay is fun and while playing normal I wasn't ever really challenged, the difficulty definitely does spike near the end.

Big Tall
Taller Than Tall



I've been through the game twice now. As someone who hasn't watched the show much in probably 10 years, I loved how they don't just rely on punchlines. They'll go through the entire joke. Sure, there are easter eggs I didn't get, but that's fine.

Great RPG mechanics, love the battle system, and it's just so damn funny. It really feels like a long episode of the show. My only complaint is the classes don't feel very different. That said, I love the Thief and Jew classes a lot.

I'm enjoying it as well, I think I'm just over half way through the game. I really appreciate all of the jokes around game culture.

Big Tall
Taller Than Tall



I finished a third playthrough yesterday to complete all the achievements. I don't know how the warrior plays, but the Jew and Mage classes are so wonderfully broken. The Jew class still takes a bit of effort, especially early on, before things get really easy.

The mage? Good lord. The first ability, Dragon's Breath is insane considering how quickly you can max it out. If you equip the "2 PP for every fire attack" attachment you'll never run out of PP and just utterly destroy everything. You get the 2 PP gain for each of it's 6 procs (more once you upgrade as it'll hit enemies to above and below which means nearly two dozen procs). It was the only skill I needed since it causes burning, and shreds armor. Fire is a weakness for what seemed like at least half the enemies in the game. For fun, throw on the SWAT helmet that lets you attack again after killing an enemy. Except for boss battles, I was never attacked from about the start of Day 3 forward.

I picked Thief myself

I got and  finished this game last night. I thought it the game was good and reminded me a lot of Paper Mario (which is a good thing). As expected the writing and the visuals were the high spot here feeling like extended versions of the show. I also enjoyed how self aware the game is in terms of RPG tropes and such. The pacing was also great, with each scene and "dungeopn" always surprising you with something bizzare. The music is also surprising epic, you can hear some nods to JRPG's as well as Skyrim. 

My favroratie part of the game was going to Canada :)

My favoraite party memebers are Butters and Cartman.

What I didn;t like was the unbalanced difficulty, it starts our pretty tough at first but when you get more equipment and you level up (I mean from level 1 to 15 your HP goes from 80 to 8000), it becomes really easy. Some of the mechanics and what to do is really hard to figure out especially at the start (like where do I need to fart?). And the game is too short, on one hand it helps with the pacing of the game, on the other it could have benefited for 3 to 5 more hours of actual story since it felt like the game could have added more.

That said this was a good game, I kind of hope we get some DLC for this. The game just feels too authentic to leave alone after the main quest is done. 

FInal boss was also kind of dissapointing I was hoping instead of

Princess Kenny
it would be

a surprise Nazi Zombie Mecha Streisand
