Obsidian's Armored Warfare takes a spin at the tank genre

Obsidian is probably the last company you'd expect to make anything like Armored Warfare, a free-to-play MMO tank shooter. It's certainly different than anything the company has brought us in the past, that's for sure. I got ...

Skyforge has the potential to be the next big MMO

Paradox is publishing Obsidian's new game, Pillars of Eternity
by Steven Hansen

Paradox Interactive, makers of grand strategy games (Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings) and Magicka, are teaming up with Obsidian (South Park: The Stick of Truth, Fallout: New Vegas) for their new RPG, Pillars of Eternity.

On the heels of its fastest selling game (Europa Universalis IV), Paradox is building two new studios, as well as turning up its publishing efforts with partnerships like the Obsidian one. "We make games that we want to play," Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester explained. "It's both how we scout games and how we make games."

Wester said they're hoping for a long relationship with Obsidian and stresses that Obsidian is going to be in full creative control of the game, which remains their IP.

Review: South Park: The Stick of Truth
by Chris Carter

It's hard to believe that I've been watching South Park for almost 17 years. I vividly remember sneaking downstairs in the dead of night, quietly turning on Comedy Central to watch Eric Cartman get probed by an alien. I still watch the show to this day.

Although it's had its ups and downs, one thing is for certain -- South Park is still topical. Odds are even if you don't watch it, you've heard about the controversial premise to an episode at least once per season. Or more importantly in this instance, you've heard the tumultuous story about the coveted South Park game, which has taken years to see the light of day.

But it's finally here, and I have to say -- it was worth the wait. Barring a few mechanical issues, it's like watching a long, quality episode of the show.

Preview: South Park: The Stick of Truth is ambitious
by Alessandro Fillari

So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you think? A brand new full-fledged RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and written and produced by the talent from the show? Sounded pretty cool to me. With an initial 2012 release date, I was looking forward to the day I could try it out.

But then things happened; it got delayed, and delayed again, and then the original publisher THQ filed for bankruptcy. Things seemed to have looked up when Ubisoft acquired publishing rights and announced a new date. But then it got delayed again, and again. This game has been delayed so much, the TV show it's based on has actually poked fun at the situation. Seriously, go check out the episode "Titties & Dragons" -- it was almost like a tease.

But now, we can  see the light at the end of the tunnel as the game has finally gone gold. With less than a month away from release, Ubisoft invited the press to get some much-appreciated hands-on time with the long-delayed title. Though read ahead with warning: if you hate South Park and you're otherwise easily offended, I can tell you now this game will probably piss you off.

This ad for South Park: The Stick of Truth just debuted during today's Super Bowl game against the sports team that are sporting for the most sports. It's pretty tame, but does show off some plot points like the return of a certain old South Park character.

There were two other quick looks at the game released on the official website too, "rejected" ads if you will. One involves Adolf Hitler and the other sees Mr. Hankey arguing with his poop wife.

Game of the Year contender for sure.
