Microsoft announces South Park game for XBLA. Could it be? [Nope :)]

posted by Harald B on - last edited - Viewed by 759 users

At E3, Microsoft announced a South Park game for XBLA - without mentioning the developer. Here's a (somewhat lame) teaser trailer. Could this be the "mystery franchise" we've been speculating about?
With no gameplay images and no additional information it's hard to tell, but it would certainly fit like a glove. It's as huge as implied, it would explain the secrecy and the license would fit Telltale well. Also, XBLA suits episodic (no confirmation yet on this one being episodic, though) and we know Telltale doesn't like to be bound to any single distribution platform.
It's still speculation, but it's easily the most plausible theory so far.

  • I completely forgot about Conker's Bad Fur Day! Good game, that.

    Shadow Man


    And that's just a partial list. It's hardly a "kiddy console".


    I meant alot of people call N64 a 'Kiddy Console'Now that I know of these games, I'm starting to wonder HOW it's a Kiddy Console.

    I find that it's best to ignore people's opinions about consoles. For example, I find the whole 360 vs PS3 battle to be no different than the Coke vs Pepsi battle. Different strokes, and all that.

    its cos nintendo mainly make games with strong colours not grey scale making games less adult.

    the n64 was my favourite console ever (so far) due to the games and controller etc

  • A lot of the kiddy image comes from how mad they were about censorship in the NES days. Some of the things they wanted changing with Maniac Mansion were ridiculous.

    I don't think strong colors makes something a kiddy game.

    That sounds like kiddy talk to me, you're so not invited to the big kid table.

    No, it's more because Nintendo first- and second- party offerings are usually (there are some exceptions, like Geist, but that wasn't a very good game from what I hear) 'family' games.
    There's a big difference between 'kids' and 'family,' though. Huge difference, really.
    It's what separates Doctor Who from The Sarah Jane Adventures. It's the difference between Wall-E and Underdog (other than, you know, the fact that one of them sucked and the other didn't). It's also not well-defined. Or defined at all, really.
