South Park and the Fractured But Whole

I have a lot of thoughts on this game.

First, I have to acknowledge I feel like I don’t want to play it as if by some delusion then I won’t be able to enjoy it anymore because that means I’ve already beaten it, and more directly I’m in fear of playing through too much then not wanting to return for the DLC of the season pass, which a piece of it has shown up, the Danger Room. I’ll slow roll it a bit.

Second holy crap when separated from this game for a while is a hilarious to return to. The characters are so blunt all the time to each other, especially the kids towards adults, and there is some occasional 4th wall breaking to keep you engaged and/or annoyed they reference you, the player.

Third, this game is so tied to current events South Park canon. Just refreshing myself on the whole thing makes me see the connections more. Another reason I don’t want to play too much until the Season Pass comes out with more content. But it’s still fun. The combat is the best reason to play the game, with all the different possible character combinations. So that keeps me going for now.

So speaking of that, it was amazing and amusing that after I came out of the school and talked with Mr Mackey and declared myself non-binary with him... I got jumped by a bunch of rednecks leaving the school. That was so much fun as the insults between the rednecks and the kids, particularly Stan, were just so LOLable. “f*** you! You’re cisgender, dick!” Also this echos a fight my GF is having with a few trans people, so maybe it was more funny to me right now than maybe it would be to most.

But the moments in this game are crazy. Like... Stick of Truth can definitely be praised for its overarching story on top of meta-narrative against video games and RPGs in particular, but here in Fractured But Whole it’s just kinda random happenings and if you enjoy it, great, if not then South Park could be arsed with giving a s*** about your desires on what’s happening in game. It’s this weird change of pacing, especially story wise as it doesn’t feel like it’s telling much of one. Just setting up framing for doing various superhero things via the Coon and Friends moniker. Which I personally like, but I’m saying it like this because I can see people not enjoying it.

Especially the ending, which from looking at the map I can see a mile a way in the form of the Canada Wall. Which, again maybe I’m giving a pass as I know this is how last season of South Park ended when Garrison got elected president of the USA but in a game setting it’s just kinda a slap in the face. But this kind of stuff really makes me hopeful for what the Season Pass brings for the game, it feels like they are holding off something.

Or maybe I’m reading too much into things that aren’t even there and I’m setting myself up for disappointment. Ah well. Guess I’ll find out ascthe DLC releases. Game still brings a smile to my face every time I boot it up. It’s now my mood lifter of a game.

I don't actually watch the show, so I wonder if this game isn't as much for me as the last one.

You mentioning Flower reminds me I need to play Journey since I have it sitting in my PS+ lineup. Never really have much thought to Flower.

Journey and Flower are awesome for being so serene and different than most video games. And still amusing/entertaining/engaging to play! Just great design all around.

And I must say for claiming I have a “1TB HDD” on my PS4 Pro to seeing it actually be “860 GB,” or so it says on my screen, to in practical use it only fills up 817 GB at maximum, with a Phantom 2GB of “other data” I can’t touch and roughly 40-42 GB of space that SAYS it’s available but for some reason I can’t comprehend it actually isn’t, so it makes installing 5-9GB games incredibly frustrating for no reason as why do I have to delete any games if I have 40 GB free for a single 8GB file?

This makes no f***ing sense but I guess I gotta deal. Downloading Fortnite: Battle Royale Now. Let’s see if I can even compete.

Well s***. Here I thought I was pretty thorough with Bloodborne. Was watching a new video about cut content and they kept talking about Laurence. Couldn't remember who that was and I guess that's because of how little I encountered him in the DLC. Apparently I missed a whole boss fight there?
