South Park: The Stick of Truth could so easily have ended up as a sad casualty of the gaming business. Even from the outset, the odds were stacked against it. Obsidian is a talented developer but its games, particularly Alpha Protocol and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, have been plagued by bugs. Then came the dissolution of original publisher THQ, then the Ubisoft acquisition of Stick of Truth, and its subsequent delay into 2014. That the game came out at all is miraculous. That it happens to be very good and very funny is just icing on the cake.

Sam Prell (@SamPrell), who wrote our review of South Park: The Stick of Truth, will be taking Joystiq Streams on a guided tour of the colorful Colorado-based RPG at 4PM EST on the Joystiq Twitch channel. Anthony John Agnello (@ajohnagnello) will be hanging in the chat feeding your questions directly to Sam. We heartily encourage you to come on down to Joystiq Streams.
