South Park - Preview @ Smashpad

Smashpad has taken a look at South Park: The Stick of Truth and wrote an article based on what they saw at Comic Con.

The creators were not pleased with the quality of South Park’s self-titled first game and their intent was not to create another video game. They warmed to the idea and decided that if they were going to do it, they would have as much control over the project as they do the show, which they write and direct themselves. With so much involvement, that led to 16 years worth of characters and ideas to be poured into the initial script for The Stick of Truth. Every character was included and the game quickly became far too bloated. Parker and Stone found ways to cut down content and narrow the focus while still personally believing that they've honored what has been. But what do to with so much cut content? Stone stated that “those words… that phrase… those letters” kept popping up with each cut: DLC. DLC tends to be a huge issue within the gaming community, but Stone firmly stated their stance: “Fuck that.” Their decision was that if they couldn’t include an idea in the game, they could easily work it into future episodes.
