10 Mega-Hyped 2014 Video Games That Will Definitely Disappoint
10. South Park: The Stick Of Truth
Look, I love South Park and pretty much everything about the show. Its completely crude, vulgar, shocking, but also wields some of the sharpest social commentary around that consistently breaks through our exteriors possibly giving us a new perspective on something in life. And in an ideal world, thats everything the game will bring to the table. My hopes and faith have just simply gradually waned though after delay after delay. I can understand a few months delay to iron out the kinks and add some polish but this game isnt receiving those delays. It has instead received two ridiculous delays of roughly one year each. Im fully aware that THQ went out of business but that didnt stop Volition and Deep Silver from getting Saints Row IV out on time, and it was also a great game. The gameplay footage is surprisingly scarce and lame too. For a game that releases in 3 months a trailer showing off a farting QTE while amusing - isnt exactly gameplay that really wins me over. The one silver lining though is that through all of the dark times, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have not once left the side of the project. Furthermore, the graphical engine does strikingly resemble the shows inseparable animation down to almost every detail. Heres hoping that Obsidian and Ubisoft can still deliver.
