In terms of video games, nothing in the Christmas season really caught my eye even though that’s when companies push out their biggest titles of the year. Instead, I’m looking to Q1 and Q2 of 2013 for my video game fix. In January, I’m getting Ni No Kuni (a game co-developed with Studio Ghibli), Bioshock Infinite in March, and in May it’s South Park: The Stick of Truth. While most South Park games have been forgettable, this is the one to keep an eye on. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment (Fallout: New Vegas) and written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, you can see from this new trailer that the game looks terrific. Not only does it look hilarious, but it’s an RPG with what looks to be turn-based combat, so I’m pretty much sold.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. South Park: The Stick of Truth is due out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC on May 14, 2013.
In the first Red Nose Day special on American shores (benefitting the charity Comic Relief), celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Anna Kendrick, and even Kermit the Frog all showed up to participate in the live telecast.
