What happens when you are the new kid in town? What is the the first thing you want to do? You want to become cool. This is your ultimate goal in "South Park: The Stick of Truth". The kids of South Park are invovled in a massive LARP that encompasses the whole town. You enter as the Dragonborn, a hero that is to become known by all through his magical abilities. And when I say magical I really mean the ability to fart in a cup and then direct the flammable/explosive fumes to where you want them. As the Dragonborn you also have a shout (a massive fart that can destroy some barriers) frost breath (fire extinguisher) and lightning (bucket of water and a car battery).
The demo we watched felt like what you may see in an authentic episode of South Park. You can feel the influence that Matt and Trey Parker have on the games creation. Expect it out "this holiday season, or some holiday season. You know how games are".
