You would think that a game that comes out in 3 months would have some GP vids.

I think that trailer has a lot of gameplay video in it. They've completely blurred the line between cutscene and gameplay with that particular art style. Trey & Matt wanted it all to look like the show.

Well if that's the case Kudos to them. If some of that was gameplay it blends seemlessly into the game. Is there an official release date announce for this?

So the game is basically just watching the show? Because 90% of that trailer clearly did not have any gameplay. There was gameplay towards the end, but it was "prettied up". You are giving Obsidian WAY too much credit.

Re: South Park: The Game (360 & PS3)

All the battle scenes where they were shown at a distance and lined up across the screen were gameplay, I think - including the cat pissing on somebody and Jesus Christ bringing the smackdown on... homeless people?

The bit where the kid flies in the air with the purple background and then causes some sort of earthquake is one of those special attack animations they do in RPGs. I hope they are fairly brief and don't go on and on like in FF7.

Most of it was comprised of cutscenes though.

This is a pretty good look into the history of Obsidian, and there's some details in there about the South Park game.

All the fighting in the video is gameplay.

Yeah, like I said, the little bit at the end of the trailer...You know, those split second shots that don't bother to show any UI or give any real idea on how the game actually plays?

I have a huge feeling this game is going to be mediocre at best.

Isn't that their "we don't know when it's coming" date? I wonder if Wired has considered this for their vaporware list.

Yeah, definitely just a place holder date when they don't have an actual one.

Games always have an end of the year date like that when the real release date is in limbo.

Yeah, but if you expected it to meet the date after the THQ bankruptcy, you were already living in fantasyland.

Fixed.

And yeah I want this bad, even if expectations are low.

I'm going to assume it'll hit around October when the new Season starts. Oh well.

Re: South Park: The Game (360 & PS3)

the new trailer said holiday too, but didn't specify which holiday (as part of a joke about the delays).

Re: South Park: The Game (360 & PS3)

This delay will probably be the only reason this turns out to be a good game. Every single game Obsidian has ever released *would* of been a great game at release, if it wasn't for it being so buggy. Luckily with Fallout New Vegas they got the chance to work on it so much after release.
