South Park's creators explain how The Stick of Truth got too big for its own good

Polygon: "Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creator of South Park, said games like The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, EarthBound, Paper Mario and The Legend of Zelda were key influencers in their decision to make South Park: The Stick of Truth. Drawing inspiration from those games, however, led to ambition that got the best of them."

The story is too old to be commented.

So is the game still happening?

Yeah, as far as I know it's still happening.

Happy for trey and Matt but they couldn't have pickeda worse developer to make the game. Every obsidian game is either extreamly buggy, poorly devlopered, or outright unplayable. Then instead of manning up and saying they screwed up and blame the whole world for their awful games and claim they have "no time to develop" ON EVERY GAME, including the game they had free reign on (Alpha Protocol) which was horrible and unplayable because of the game mechanics. I hope this game is different for them but I haven't seen one good game from them ever so I won't up my hopes high. At least it's with ubisoft they have Produce mostly great games so hopefully they'll slap some sense into Obsidian.

They made fallout new Vegas. That was a great game.

It was.. but was full of glitches and freezes on both the 360/PS3.. yeah, they were working with Bethesda's poorly optimized gfx engine but Obsidian modded it heavily themselves, yet the bugs, glitches and freezing were still there.

I'd agree if the tutorial wasn't so bugged you couldn't get out of it....tried 10 different characters and it all bugged out. Wasn't just me either, almost everyone who bought it at my store traded it in the next day. Maybe they fixed it with the ultimate edition but I won't give Obsidian another cent because of their failures.

Alpha Protocol had 2 budget increases, and 3 time extensions. What was delivered was absolute nonsense. Fallout: New Vegas was great but it was no mistake that it was a buggy broken turd, and most of the game was practically already done (Fallout 3 on a different map) All they had to do was voice acting, character models, landscape, quest design, and tweak the AI slightly. The game was pretty much done, it just needed a new map.

I think what they mean is that they are hoping there game lives up to be seen as a great game up there with Skyrim.
