Matt Stone, Trey Parker Still Chasing After Epic Video Game

Will this be the year the co-creators of South Park finally manage to replicate their zany brand of comedy into a truly memorable video game? ABC News blogger Dan Milano seems to think the chances are good. after attending today’s XBox media briefing at E3.

Milano, the network’s social media editor, writes on the side about tech and video games. He notes that with The Stick of Truth “at last it seems that gamers are in for a South Park game with a scope as epic as 1999′s South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.”

The new game settles on the low-grade look of the Comedy Central series, maps out the namesake town in more detail than ever before and allows players to drop themselves into the action RPG-style through personalized avatars. It comes on the heels of an earlier 2012 game, South Park: Tenorman, that garnered tepid reviews.
