South Park: The Stick of Truth – Platinum Trophy & Reliving One of My Favourite Games!

I am oh so happy to get the platinum trophy for this absolute masterpiece! I absolutely adore South Park and I can honestly say that it is one of my favourite shows of all time.
I love its humour, I love the characters, I love how it perfectly satires modern life and pop culture and how it deals with the most touchy topics without being offensive for the sake of being offensive.  Looking at you, Family Guy.

When this first came out I bought it on the Xbox 360, I didn’t really go for 100% on games back then but I had an absolute blast playing it!
This is one of my favourite games and it was really fun to relive this gem. It’s so fun being able to play through an episode of South Park, I was still laughing at all the references and the jokes from the shows that were in the game. It’s a pretty simple RPG which is nice. I am not the biggest fan of that genre anyway so it’s a nice change of pace from the usual 100+ hours RPGs that are out there. Given how the original developers THQ went out of business I am just glad this game came out at all so I can live with the shortness of the game, I’d imagine there’ll be a lot more content in The Fractured But Whole since Ubisoft have had time to work on it from the start.

I guess my one complaint about this game is how easy it can be, while it’s barebones approach is good and accessible it has it’s downside. You can get weapon strap-ons and patches which boost your weapons damage, can add status effects to your weapons and fun stuff like that. Some of the combinations of the status effects can make the battles seem stupidly easy. My favourite was combining burning and bleeding, this broke some battles and even the boss battles seemed so easy!

If you’re a trophy hunter you can get all the trophies in one playthrough if you follow a guide but I had to have a second playthrough because I didn’t play as the Jew class, oops! I enjoy the game enough to do that though!

Can’t wait to start The Fractured But Whole!
