This game has awesome style and writing. The best game based on a comedy TV show I have played. The Family guy game needed to be something like this.

My only criticism would be to do with balance around levels and weapons. Did anyone else hit the level cap long before the game was over? The order you got given a lot of the weapons seemed strange. For example the Katana can be bought outright from Jimbo for twenty something dollars as soon as you have the money. Very late in the game after going to Canada and killing everything he tells you to hunt, you receive a key to open the chest up on the shelf behind him. Both the weapons contained inside are fairly weak and the axe is worse than the Katana. Or was that a joke and I'm just humorless?

Yeah I was overlevelled throughout, all the equipment I was being awarded was useless compared to things I'd picked up. I finished the game in the crab people gear, because the only set of higher level gear I got after that had no armour on it so I didn't bother using it.

No doubt about it there is tons of polish on this game and a lot of love has gone into the details but there's a pretty clear lack of playable content. There are basically no side quests in the entire game that aren't completed by playing through the game as normal and just keeping your eyes open. I also never used the summons because I didn't want to have to go back to pick up replacements so I was saving them for tough fights, except they can't be used on the toughest fights and since it turns out you'd only get 3? one for each in-game day of them anyway they seem a little pointless.

I almost forgot about the summons options during fights and didn't use them until I was nearly done the game. I basically just used them to speed things up so I could get to the bosses faster.

Yeah, I was referring to uses per not number of. AFAIK (since I didn't use any) as they are described in the game they are single use items you have to refill, and they can only be refilled once per in-game day. Since there are only 3 in game days as far as I can remember that limits you to 12 summons in the entire game.

I was dismayed you couldnt make a female character but found out pretty quickly you can basically make your characters mtf trans and since they don't talk it doesnt ruin ~the immersion~. Most progressive game yet? Mayhaps.

So am I absolutely loving stupid or is the fart tutorial in the toilet with Randy broken? I've tried it with both my 360 controller and my keyboard and am so absolutely sick of his fail line that I don't think I can try anymore today. I'm on the first part of it as well, not the second part which judging by the Steam thread is also really weird. Anyone able to explain what the gently caress it wants me to do? The onscreen prompts say to push the right stick down and then up like a second later, doing that fails. Pushing the left stick in any direction (which is what you do with other fart moves right?) makes it fail as well.

Ignore everything the game is saying to do and move the little arrow on the edge of the oval until it's at 9 oclock and hold it there until the game tells you to release. The game does a bad job of saying what it wants you to do, but what it's actually saying is that each fart has a specific cursor position you need to hold to trigger it and you can use a or d to reach it. You dont have to be mashing a or d or timing it or anything, just use either one of them until your trigger is at 9 oclock (Where the waves get biggest) and then leave it there until you're told to right click. The QTEs in this game are actually incredibly simple but the game does such a poor job telling you what to do that they're a thousand times harder as a result.

I spent forever on this. You just hold the right stick down until the prompt glows, then flick it up.

I found the next part harder, trying to copy Randy exactly is completely wrong and its kind of a lovely tutorial. Going by his instruction it seems like you hold down the right stick, then move the left stick in and out of the vibrating part. What actually needs to happen is just like all the other fart tutorials, you hold the right stick down, then turn the left stick and hold it when it vibrates until it tells you to push the right stick up.

GreatGreen posted:

I didn't make any use of the mechanic mentioned in the post above, and for the latter third of the game I was just using maximum levelled circum-scythe and the plagues over and over while my buddy healed or restored PP. It was a complete cakewalk and felt overpowered as hell, no idea if the other classes are like that or is the Jew is really poorly balanced.

I'm not at that point I think, for me all I have is two sticks on screen and no oval or arrows.

Yeah that's what it's telling me to do but when I pull the stick down it fails before the second prompt glows or changes at all.

This took me forever, but you also need to move the mouse cursor to put the fart where you need it to go. The way he explained it seemed to suggest you need to use arrow keys to move it but the fart just follows your mouse.

AoE debuffs, and a super strong single target minus-armor attack will be your bread and butter. The various class specific gear is mostly garbage that let's you do more damage at low HP or wih various debuffs on you.

It's not a paladin, and doesn't feel like a paladin at all. Butters is a Paladin.

This was the one redeeming part of that terrible minigame. It probably wouldn't have been so bad if they actually told you that you are actually supposed to rotate the left stick quickly. I was doing it at the speed the prompt was showing, and failed horribly several times. Figured I wasn't being careful enough, so I did it slower. Same result. Then I stopped rotating the stick when Randy said it can't go wider. Same result. The best part of all this was having to re-equip my doctor gear every time I loaded the checkpoint.

For a moment there, I was wishing I had the censored version so I wouldn't have to go through this bullshit.

The cow is at the farm, you have to put the cow bell rope that's on the gate. Be careful, the Farm Cow one of the toughest fights in the game.

I managed to glitch my way out of doing that fight, while still getting the credit for it. Took Jimmy on my first trip to the farm, put the cow bell up, cow comes out immediately followed by the farmer triggering a cutscene. After I finish talking to the farmer, the cow's already dead and I got a bunch of xp. Easiest fight in the game.

I actually found the mechanics pretty simple and just enjoyable enough to not make me hate QTEs and button mashing. I always disliked button timing sequences in attacking or blocking but the normal difficulty setting of this game proved just enough of a challenge that I had to do about 60% of them correct to not have to chug potions every turn, as a Warrior with Butters as my wingman. This is coming from someone that never got into Super Mario RPG, or Paper Mario because of my annoyance with the timing attacks in those games.

That said, this game was loving amazing otherwise. Easily the best use of a different medium I've ever seen. Everything feels exactly where it should be, the game plays out like an episode in all the right ways. Actually this felt like the a second movie because of all the cameos and references. Granted the game isn't particularly long, and there's not quite enough that I want to go back and do a second playthrough just yet. Still I just came off Thief 4 and after that load of garbage, this was solid gold. Everything from the Dragon Warrior style Canada setting, to the opening lines of "You have to wait your turn Craig, like they did in the old days." was just fantastic. There was only one bug in the game I found, the game never crashed, and the pathing was completely fine as well.

Top to bottom this game was perfect. 5/5 Chinpokomon.

I'd say that's but since you had the cow and farmer trigger at the same time I could see how you'd miss it.

Assuming you're wearing clothes, put your finger under your shirt and rub it back and forth over the button instead of tapping.

THIS IS HOW YOU REMIND ME OF WHAT I REALLY AM

To me, the only thing that really keeps the game from being perfect for what it could be is that you never really get to go to any true "fictional" realms in the South Park mythology. You don't get to visit Heaven, Hell, or Imaginationland. Even though the environments you do get to visit are varied, the "fantasy" realms in South Park are really epic and over the top and I think they would have fit perfectly in this game. Maybe I'm just spoiled, but I kind of found the game's world just a bit... plain? I mean it's incredibly dense and well realized and there was obviously a ton of work put into it, and I loved the parts that were there, but when you've seen so many South Park characters battle in and explore all those other cool rear end places over the years, it really makes me wish I could too.

I haven't given up hope for the expansion pack though. Hopefully they'll make one.
