The lights are on
Trey Parker and Matt Stone have never been shy about their love of gaming. From Randy Marsh playing Guitar Hero in his underpants to the legendary "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode, the comic duo have demonstrated an obvious familiarity with the medium. Now that they've conquered television, film, and Broadway, the next target on their hit list is the gaming industry.
Thanks to a collaboration with THQ and Obsidian, Parker and Stone are writing the script, performing the dialogue, and overseeing the development of South Park: The Game. Unlike the cash-in Acclaim titles from over a decade ago, this ambitious project is a full-scale RPG for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. As the new kid in South Park, it'll be up to you to make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats. Be sure to check out our January issue for all the details, as well as an interview with Parker and Stone themselves.

South Park game ok... but RPG!??!?!?!?!? I'm sold!
What the hell? I don't know how to feel about this. I love the show but I never thought of it to be video game material.
I just don't know what to say guys.
Wow, Reiner was right, there was no way to see the January cover coming.
I'm actually pretty interested in this. It looks like it could be epic. Can't wait for more GI coverage on it!
Wow and wow again... seriously? This made laugh inside.
Wow just wow
I'm all for games that make me laugh. South Park has really revamped its humor and animation (in a good way) and I bet this game will be hilarious
I honestly don't know how to react to this. what is going on?!?!?
My question is: how are they going to write the script for a game, when they barely get the scripts for episodes done before they air?
i like how theyre dressed from the lord if the rings episode
