    Yeah, but it appears to be a bit deeper. At the least, they're taking movement and positioning into account. I think they're trying to walk a thin line between "story clicker" and "good RPG". Personally I thought they did a great job with the first game - I wasn't really playing because I wanted a difficult game though. My biggest problem was the level progression, skills, and equipment options. I sort of wish they had just pulled it all out and made the features accessible another way (i.e. leaving pieces of armor/weapons around when the context calls for it).

    The first one was great. I just grow tired of turn based combat rather quickly and I abandoned the game around the part where you are in someone house that is burning or something like that. It was a while ago.

    The premise of this game would work SOOOO much better with a River City Ransom format instead the shit that is turn based combat.

    I really don't understand why you are you playing for the combat system. I like turn based game. But if that's why I played I'd play some jap game instead. Play for the story and humor. Its basically like a movie of south park you get to be in. I don't think the game is for you if you're complaining about the combat which was basic but not bad. Just turn it on easy to speed it up and enjoy the show and exploration

    The combat is half of the game dude. And it should be. If it wasnt, why are we paying 60 bucks for another South Park movie? Because it's somewhat interactive? Meh, it's needs a little more than that.

    At least it's not 2018 like with Bloodstained.

    Pokemon is out in November and that was going to take me a while to beat anyway.

    Have no problem with this.

    Short delays are much more desireable than releasing unfinished or unsatisfying products.

    I'm glad you won't be making this game because it would be shitty with your idea

    First time I put in the Stick of Truth disc, I played it like 2 or 3 hrs straight and worried about PS3 overheating. Quite fun. Takes some getting used to the menus and turn based fighting.
