Ever wanted to team up with Eric Cartman and run amok through South Park, CO? Well, now you can. At the Microsoft press event, we were told we could do just that, with Obsidian's latest project out of THQ, South Park: The Stick of Truth. Perhaps THQ can turn things around. If you care about South Park, this game will be perfect for you. If you don't, then this title probably won't change your mind.
The creators of the hit TV show Matt Stone and Trey Parker came out to show off the game. Instead of taking control of one of the four hellacious main characters on the show, you are now the role of some new kid who has just moved into the wonderful city and is trying to make new friends. Shortly into the game you run into your favorite characters from the show and proceed to save the South Park from characters spoofed from Lord of the Rings.
