All Articles: South Park: The Stick of Truth
It’s time for your Friday Xbox Games Store update, and today’s update includes three Xbox One games with very unique visual styles.
First up is Fe, a “wordless platformer” from Zoink and Electronic Arts that wants to allow players to make discoveries “without handholding.” Also available to download today is South Park: The Stick of Truth, an Xbox One re-release of the popular RPG. Finally today, Claybook takes place in “a unique world made entirely of clay” and it’s now available for the Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program.
You can learn more about the rest of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store after the break. (more…)
The Umbra Witch flies again as Platinum Games and Nintendo will bring Bayonetta 2 to the Switch this week. The package will also include a download code for the original Bayonetta.
Also available on store shelves this week will be a pair of games that explore warfare in the olden days… Dynasty Warriors 9 and Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Both games will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One.
Players looking for a more modern take on warfare might want to pick up Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege – Advanced Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One. The re-release will include “rare bonus content” and 600 in-game Credits.
Finally this week, Ubisoft will re-release South Park: The Stick of Truth for the PS4 and Xbox One with a graphical upgrade.

PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to head on down to South Park and have themselves a time next month. Ubisoft has announced they will re-release South Park: The Stick of Truth for the two platforms on February 13.
Originally released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2014, South Park: Stick of Truth is an RPG from Obsidian Entertainment that also doubles as a parody of ridiculous fantasy sagas like The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
South Park: The Stick of Truth likely won’t be enhanced in any way for its PS4 and Xbox One debut, but it’ll be available for $29.99 as a retail disc and a digital download.
BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition won “Game of the Year” at the 2015 SXSW Gaming Awards, but 2014’s other big releases walked away with the rest of the categories.

Shadow of Mordor collected trophies for “Excellence in Gameplay,” “Excellence in Animation,” and “Excellence in Design and Direction,” while Naughty Dog’s expansion to The Last of Us was awarded with the “Most Valuable Add-On Content” trophy as well as “Most Valuable Character” (for Ellie).
The full list of winners (which also includes Destiny, Far Cry 4, Alien: Isolation, Transistor, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, and many others) can be found after the break. (more…)
The inaugural Game Awards was held last night in Las Vegas. In between all the major announcements for future releases, Geoff Keighley and crew managed to hand out awards in 16 categories honoring 11 of 2014’s best games.
BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition took home “Game of the Year” honors as well as “Best Role Playing Game.” Three other games took home two awards including Mario Kart 8 (“Best Family Game” and “Best Sports/Racing Game”), Valiant Hearts: The Great War (“Best Narrative” and “Games For Change”), and Destiny (“Best Score/Soundtrack” and “Best Online Experience”).
In addition to Mario Kart 8’s two wins, Nintendo also collected the “Developer of the Year” award and “Best Fighting Game” for Super Smash Bros. For Wii U. The consolemaker’s four wins were matched by Ubisoft who matched Valiant Hearts’ two awards with wins in “Best Shooter” (Far Cry 4) and “Best Performance” (Trey Parker as Various Voices in South Park: The Stick of Truth).
Other winners include Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (“Best Action/Adventure”), Shovel Knight (“Best Independent Game”), Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (“Best Mobile/Handheld”), and Grand Theft Auto V (“Best Remaster”).
The full list of winners in a handy list format (including all the viewer-voted categories) can be found after the break. (more…)
