You get that evil out of here. Thrawn ain't dying. I reject that reality.

Back from Stick of Truth. This battle music is like a mix between Skyrim and Pirates of the Caribbean, and works better than it has any right to.

Picked up a slew of games in the wake of holiday sales, and the one I've spent the most time with, enamored, was South Park: The Fractured, But Whole (Say it out loud.)

 

Now Stick of Truth back in 2014 was good, albeit highly simple RPG with turn-based combat. FBW more or less sticks to the same roots, but ups the complexity in nearly every area.

 

Without going into the plot too much (It's South Park, half the fun is knowing what kind of crap Matt and Trey are gonna dig at unexpectedly.) The game picks up some time after Stick of Truth, in which we assume King Douchebag decided they wanted to rejoin the LARP, until a visit from the Coon (Cartman) during a climactic battle ends up causing everyone to switch to playing superheroes. This leaves New Kid at the bottom of the totem pole once again, joining up with the superheroes to both do civil war against a rival superhero 'franchise' and investigate a missing cat which spirals into one involving actual crime.

Stick of Truth was highly simplistic turn based combat, Here, combat now takes place on a grid, forcing the player to think about movement, how to attack or defend against enemies, from where, with what, etc. This leads to some pretty interesting and creative battles, including some boss battles that flip everything on its head, keeping player creativity paramount and providing challenge.

 

In conclusion my current version of New Kid/King Douchebag/The Amazing Butthole

Also, here's the best boss battle character splash page ever.
