South Park: The Stick of Truth

This is the South Park game.

Oh, no! Is that those little kids who swear?

Yup.

Mr. Hankey?

You like Mr. Hankey.

Well, at least it’s colorful. How come they always have snow? Are they up in Canada?

They’re in Colorado.

Colorado? It doesn’t snow all the time in Colorado. Is he Gandalf?

No, he’s just a wizard.

He looks like Gandalf.

Kind of.

The music is, like, from Titanic. Are they going to beat the crap out of him with a stick?

I don’t know.

I assume this is not for children — oh, my gosh! He flashed the moon! Is he an Indian?

No, he’s just an archer.

Why does Kenny have to be the girl?

I don’t know.

No one else would do it.

(My mom gasps as Cartman swears at his mother.)

He talks like that to his mother?

Yeah, I would never do that.

Yeah. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh! Oh, there’s Mr. Hankey. He’s a wizard, too. Oh, there’s Spock! Oh, my gosh! I hope this is not for children.

It’s not for children. It’s rated M for mature.

Now what’s the purpose of that game?

It’s an RPG.

What’s an RPG?

Uh, you know, Final Fantasy?

(pause) All right, whatever.

It’s like Zelda. A little bit.
