Default South Park - Preview @ Venturebeat

March 3rd, 2014, 05:48
Venturebeat previews the soon to released South Park: The Stick of Truth about the Jew class. Apparently the Jew class is a cleric you play in-game.

I expected more off-color jokes as a Jew, and if what I saw during the preview is representative of the full game, playing one is full of laughs and not particularly offensive. No Jew gold around my neck. No Moses-as-MCP Cone. You sometimes hear faint echoes of “Jews, Jews are lame” in the background (a line from the South Park Christmas Special’s Hanukkuh song). But I didn’t see anything that pushed the edge of decency.

The Jew, says Ubisoft rep Jon Miller, is essentially South Park’s cleric class. So it — and the Jewish humor the cartoon’s known for — could draw a lot of players; a lot of role-playing fans enjoy the mix of combat and healing powers that come with priest classes. And I wouldn’t be surprised if they, too, find the Jew to be pretty innocuous overall.

And this is stunning. South Park is known for its offensiveness — Ubisoft’s even censoring scenes featuring abortions and anal probes for some overseas markets. But when it comes to the Jew, I didn’t see anything that I would consider offensive at all. It may come later in the game.
More information.

Or, you know, perhaps you're an adult that knows how to take life less seriously, and also recognize a joke, meant in fun, with no malicious intent. I have to believe adults like that are still out there, somewhere.

Good luck finding one I heard they are almost extinct nowadays. I'm shocked no one was offended by this post shocked I say. Now on to posting today news-bits.
