Thank you for listing all the episodes to watch that are related to this game.

Also, I found this pretty funny when you try to skip the opening cutscene:

Is this one also by Obsidian?

Since your Google is broken (just kidding), no, it's not.

Also it just finished downloading! Hooray!

What I really liked about the first game is that it was funny in ways that South Park the show hasn't been funny in years. The whole "now they just act like adults" complaint is 100% OTM, though I still like some episodes (And I did think the season before the current one was great)

Oh my God. When you put the correct password to the basement door in the beginning of the game without looking for the clue for it first.

Cartman appears on top right of the screen dressed up like Bill Belichick with a headset and a Patriots hoodie and says “Hey, Tom Brady. You wanna play the game or do you just wanna be known as a smug cheating bitch for the rest of your life?

this happened to me and i bust out laughing

i'm just now starting the "real" part of the game and it's already amazing. i'm starting to think matt and trey should just do video games full time. the new combat system seems really dope

There is 5 options for the gender and 4 of them Mackey says the same though. Male Cis/Trans and Female Cis/Trans all say the same thing. It's the other option that is funny (and of course will upset some folks)

he says the same thing if you pick male? that's weird, why would that confuse him? when i picked female trans he kept being like "wait, we all assumed you were a boy" and calls your mom saying "well in stick of truth there was the whole king thing"

The combat is a lot more tactical it seems. It's sort of a grid based JRPG style system.

Based on the 4 hours I've played this one is a lot longer.

As for the writing, it's still great but I haven't actually seen much yet. If you obsessively loot everywhere and get collectables it can be a while between plot.

I've got 9 hours on the clock and just picked my second class, seems a lot bigger than the first game, though a lot of my play time has been just exploring houses, which I feel like they could have made a bit more interesting, put some more sidequests in them or something. I'm still enjoying it more than the first game on balance though, I really like the systems and the combat and how they went with quality over quantity of combat encounters.

I think that dialogue is the same no matter what and possibly dependent on your outfit. I picked cis girl and they all still treat me like a boy, but say stuff like that or like how Butters frequently comments on how pretty you are “for a boy.”

ah that makes sense. i started the game with a character that just looks like me, then right before i went to see Mr Mackey i crafted the Totally Not Scarlet Witch costume and decided to be trans, and yeah i think Cartman said that after i put on one of the "girl" haircuts

i think maybe there are some minor changes, depending on your choices. I'm playing a bisexual cis-gendered latino irish female. Around the Coon and Friends table, I've heard chatter like "you've got some nice raisins, for a boy" or Craig's line "I'm gay, but for some reason I'm not attracted to you." Cartman's is my favorite, and probably generic "you're attractive, but not like as a man or a woman. You're like Prince."

Yeah the Prince line is my favorite.

How many ingame days is the game? I'm only on day 2, level 4 with 120 Light, I haven't even explored the top row of the town and already have 10 hours played, when I've seen people say they beat it in 12? Does it end abruptly or am I just slow?

Also is there anything in this one like the Canada part of the first game? If not, that better be DLC!

That's actually like the easiest part of the early game, just keep moving, it ends when you reach a certain point so don't worry about attacking. The turn interrupter should always give you a chance to move everyone out of the way.

Yeah I wish the soundtrack was on Spotify.

It seems easy to miss things or side quests, a lot of times they won't get marked until you go start them. For example the Craig/Tweek quest on day 2 only gets activated if you go to the coffee shop, and don't ignore messages you get asking for help (like at one point Cartman's mom asks for help on Coonstagram)

I was thinking it's easy to get tons of money from selling the thousands of crafting parts you get but if you want all the recipes and costumes you'll get barely enough money if you sell all but like 70 of each material

Borrowed this from my brother and finished it in a day and a half. Literally end to end, everything except the yaoi collectathon and 100% selfies in 13 hours of play.

Pretty glad I didn't pay full launch price for this because yikes. It's even shallower than SoT.

I've played 13 hours and am not even 1/3 through the main plot, and the systems/combat are a lot less shallow than Stick of Truth.

With the walk/run speed being what it is, and the cutscenes, I don't know how it's even possible to do "everything" in 13 hours unless you rush and never explore? Are you sure you did all the sidequests? Most of them don't appear on your map unless you actually go to a certain place.

I genuinely don't know what you've been doing for 13 hours to only be 1/3rd of the way through the plot, I opened every box, bag, drawer and fridge in every house and poo poo in every toilet I could find so I wouldn't say I didn't "explore" enough.

Yeah I don't know either. I mean, I do tend to leave games paused while I pack bowls or make coffee but that shouldn't account for such a vast differential. :shrug:

What class combos are people going with? I'm stuck between a blaster elementalist that drops AoE everywhere or wanting to make a lightning bruiser that has a lot of mobility and single target damage

On day 2, using the Blaster's Hadoken, and the "Confuse one enemy in range", "Damage and Defense Down in an X pattern" from Psychic, with the Psychic's Ultimate. Pretty much steamrolling everything, while not as simple this one seems just as easy as SoT so far.

Combat difficulty definitely jumped on day 3.

Yeah no kidding!

So in doing the mission at the end of day 2 (infiltrating the base), what happens if you go with Kyle on the roof? I found a side door, then went up there, assumed he was asking me to do whatever because it was the mission critical path, then went through the side door. The side door ended up leading me to the end of the level, and I even got texts from Kyle specifically saying "Hey are you coming to the roof?" and then "Fine, don't meet me on the roof, whatever, I'll see you later"

Are there two ways through the dungeon or did I miss something cool?

I didn't encounter anything that cut me out of achievements/quests etc like Stick of Truth had, the only exception being a quest in the police station to hand out headshots for the police psychologist/counselor has to be delayed until after night 3 because the police are told to shut you out but as the storyline develops you get access back.

That one is especially confusing because you get the ability that lets you complete the quest at the exact time you get locked out of the ability to turn the quest in. Seems like something that got messed up in development or was just poorly designed.

I got back to this game last night as a break from AC and polished off a couple sidequests and main quests (namely, the stuff right before and right after you unlock the last three party members)

Since I had managed to stay completely unspoiled I had no idea that Butters was a party member (I was assuming the last ones would be Tweek, Mysterion and Timmy ). I was so happy about that, you have no idea. :3:

Right now I'm thinking the most purely "gently caress you guys" party is Main Character with Blaster/Psychic/Elementalist (with all Brains powers so you can use one DNA to boost everything a lot) and Toolshed, Mysterion and Tweek.

Tupperware sticks out as being so much worse than everyone else due to the range of his moves, by the time I get him into position to do anything the fight is over.

This game's combat is pretty solid for what it wants to be though, I like the variety of abilities and it felt like a meaningful decision as to who I put in my party. I really liked the tool guy's skill set, and Captain Diabetes is pretty aces. Mysterion felt exceedingly useless though. It was a solid rental. Seeing as they have a DLC bus station, maybe if they add some more content packs I'd purchase a collector's edition down the line.

Mysterion is actually super good provided you're using artifacts that boost critical. I found the best party to be him, Call Girl, and either Toolshed or Prof. Chaos

e: Tweek is God Tier also. Really, the only party member that isn't that good is Tupperware, because his range sucks

Where is SoT only $8? My brother loves these games on YouTube he’d be happy for one

It's 3 years old and sold really well so I doubt they're sweating it.

And yeah both games are very very good in different ways. SoT has much better menu game, FBW has far better combat, both are about equally funny.
