    Yep, after he dies in battle after a turn or two he will automatically come back to life! True story!

    Bill, will there be any website changes to accommodate for the inclusion of non-MMO RPG's? Such as an easier way to work with the list of games? I would like to be able to split games up by MMORPG, SRPG, and MRPG (are those even the terms?).

    "...simply due to the fact that the options of Fighter, Mage, Thief, and Jew are all extremely different."

    It's funny, I read a couple reviews previously that said they play similarly with slight differences. I hope they are as different as you say though.

    Gonna get this game as soon as possible and play the hell out of it regardless, though.

    Can't really blame them for reviewing single player RPGs. With the MMO genre as awful and stagnant as it is, I find myself okay with an accurate review of a solid game.

    Hey Dean, in Bill's column addressing the changes he sort of sheds some light on this, stating:

    "We're going to make it so that when you default to GameList.cfm on the site, only MMOs are present, and that you'll have to do some additional sorting and poking around to see the RPGs, MOBAs, etc. We're also not suddenly going to have columns and editorials about upcoming RPGs poking all over the site. Most of our RPG coverage will be like other major outlets: reviews, previews, and video let's plays. "

    Hopefully that answers your question!

    Heh, Yeah, my 1st thought was "MMORPG?"

    :) - MMO + RPG

    Translation, we need money and MMORPGs are too boring lately.  I always go to mmorpg.com  to learn about cooking. It is not the end of the MMORPG it is the end of Google PR based niche domain names.  SEO is not what it used to be, fact. 

     

    Onward white knights!

    Pre-ordered this  on Steam got to play for an hour last night (working ahead in classes) I tend to explore every nook and cranny in RPGs for goodies and hidden stuff :) So far Im enjoying the game and hitting kids with my Jew Stick....yes I picked the Jew class...

    $60 for an rpg that:

    1.) is aimed solely at the narrow market of fans of a television show ( having been pointed out in numerous reviews already that if you aren't a diehard fan of South Park there's really nothing else here for you ) and

    2.) can only barely scrape itself to 20 hours IF you complete every side and main quest possible AND take your sweet time while doing it.

    I'll wait for the Steam summer or winter sale. $20 or less? Sure. $60? They're out of their mind.

    Its a good game. All its missing is some online mode or coop mode unless that is already in. I was looking forward to this game anyways, and glad to see the review.

    As for South Park, there is toilet humor with some pretty profound meaning hidden behind it all.  Unfortunately, some people will just never loosen up and become a little (or alot) less sensitive...for those, there is always the Gilmore Girls.

    I agree, I'm also a SP fan, Stone and Parker are great. (Team America was great too :) )

     

    so I probably shouldn't even go this way, but I think it's only fair to say that... eer... actually the first few seasons of GG wasn't bad either :) funny and well-written dialogues, witty ripostes, cool references to movies and bands... and ofc Lauren Graham. She's awesome. The last few seasons weren't that good, but the start was cool.

     

    edit: Incomparable, I don't think an online mode would do any good to the game. FGO was wrecked by it for example - and it also was a nice little game until Fox tried to turn it into a combat-craved, pvp action game.

    MMO + RPG = MMORPG, which is what this site is supposed to be about.

    MMORPG - MMO = RPG, which is a different genre, and the one this article falls into.

    Thanks David!

    That is a bit of a shame. It sounds like RPG content will not be easy to navigate. I hope that there is a point where simple dropdown menus let us sort by the types of games.

    Say on the site if it's going to be other games than MMORPGs otherwise it becomes a site of random games. There is else where I can go for that. Up to you.

     

    Still though, for South Park fans this game is worth looking into.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Anyone else find it slightly funny that one of the very few popular IPs that has successfully transitioned itself into a good game is... South Park? Matt Stone and Trey Parker can do no wrong in my eyes.

    PCs don't have generations, components of them do. Thanks for the reply though. For more clarification, does anyone know if this game will be ported to PS4?

    No, it will not. It is only for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Maybe in the future it will be ported but that is unlikely.

    The article was good but the topic doesn't belong here.

    So what you are saying is that they should only review games which can fairly be labeled as both MMOs and RPGs?  Because that would knock a lot, arguably most, of the MMOs out of the running.

    Why do we come to this site instead of IGN?

    I came for the promotions and to see if the forums are as bad as its reputation is. I was not disappointed.

    Anyway, have the game now and its a blast. Innovative in so many ways, funny story and tons of jokes.

    20 hours seems a bit inaccurate.  Most reviewers as well as me clocked in at about 12-14 hours.  The main story takes about 8-10 hours.  Full completion efficiently probably takes about 15 hours (you have to be thorough as there are a lot of missables and you have to load a save before doing the "choice" you get in the game without spoiling anything).  I'm really not sure what you'd have to be doing to get the 20 hour+ number.  I'd say 40 hours is about average for an RPG, so this is considerably shorter than average.

    The game is worth it if you are a South Park fan.  If you aren't you probably won't appreciate a lot of the humor and references to South Park, though they also parody a lot of things including video games.  Still, at full price you are looking at the same price per hour a movie would cost (possibly more) and for most people that's very expensive.

    That is the only thing that has stopped me from buying so far, the price per hour of value seems a little high.
