Ubisoft has a mixture of serious and fun games, but one that is always the must fun is the South Park series. And what's more fun that being a kid playing a superhero in South park: The Fractured, But Hole.

The story picks up where Stick of Truth left off. Kids playing superheroes. Your character will become a superhero and be able to choose your own special powers. You will join Cartman as The Coon, Butters as Professor Chaos, and Kenny as Mysterion. Also, PC Principal will be in the game.

In a nushell, "Players will once again assume the role of the New Kid. As the newest member of Coon and Friends, you must create your own superhero, build up your notoriety, and use your superpowers to save South Park. Only then will Coon and Friends take their rightful place as the greatest team of superheroes ever assembled, and get the movie deal they so richly deserve." 

The game has changed from a straight RPG to more of a strategic RPG, with tactical positioning and all kinds of special powers uised in a turn-based mode. Players will be able to manipulate time and space with certain powers.

If you pre-purchase the game, you will get The Stick of Truth for free. The game, which will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC, will be released on December 6.

      Gameplay looks pretty fucking cool. Reminds me of D&D 4e.

        They actually made a remark about that. I can't remember how they phrased it, but it was during their talk about overhauling the combat.

          I heard them say combat 4.0 or something like that. I guess they're big enough nerds that it was probably intentional.

            Yeah, that was it! I immediately thought of dnd 4.0 when they said that.

        I just tried playing it today (I bought it during a steam sale months ago) and I'm not sure I get it.

        The combat seems... okay. The humor is South Park which is also OK I guess. Nothing really stood out to me in the hour or so I played as being super awesome. I got as far as recruiting twitch or w/e that kid's name is.

          The combat is serviceable, it's mostly the variety of enemies and the humor are what make the game. Also, the ridiculous amount of South Park Easter eggs. Keep playing, especially if you're a fan of the show.

            There were a ton of characters that I haven't seen much of in a while.

          It's nothing special if you're not a fan of South Park. If you are however, it's phenomenal because it feels like playing an episode of the show, and there's tons of great fan service.

            So much fan service, lots of digs at other games and gaming cliches, and unbelievably messed up humour. Even having seen lots of the show, I could not believe the places they went. So messed up, so good.

          I assumed that was the kind of humor we could look forward to in this South Park game.

      That looks great! The Stick of Truth was fun, but the game was a bit simplistic.
