    I generally don't watch SP any more. I felt it just wasn't very funny anymore, just too over the top. Every now and then I catch a newer one that captures the more down-to-earth nature of its earlier episodes and really enjoy it. This was one of those episodes for me. Sure, it wasn't as laugh-out-loud funny as when Butter got a ninja star in his eye, but it made some good points humorously without being overly preachy or ridiculous.

    I wonder if M&T were approached to do a game and the whole process just disappointed them. Or if they played The Other Game and hated it as much as I did.

    Reckon they tried it and it didn't appeal to them. Reckon Trey and Matt just didn't get it. Also, reckon they got approached but didn't like the concept.

    Did anyone notice that when they showed the hand drawn pics of game currency that it included donuts and clams? :)

    Satan giving an excellent explanation of addiction and then possessing Stan to have an epic battle with Beelzaboot in Canada was definitely as down-to-earth as Cartman getting dragged into outer space and probed. :mrgreen:

    Did my post get deleted or did I not post it? It was a link to the south park website for the video episode in discussion. I swear sometimes my phone does goofy things.

    External links are not allowed, I had to remove it.

    The episode should be on Hulu, ondemand, and South Park Studios, for those who may be looking.

    I have to agree with the South Park kids...it is stupid. Lol.

    Games like this are just a monotonous collect-a-thon.

    Its fun building a city but I mean real games have challenges and goals. Which is why I don't pay for premium items or donuts.

    Well, when you put it THAT way it sounds cuckoo, but compared to Lemmywinks, it was practically a PBS documentary. :)

    Only South Park could make Satan the most level-headed and truthful character as well as the voice of reason in the midst of chaos :lol: Coming from a family that has multiple addicts from multiple generations it struck a chord in all the right ways. The game is better than what some of us addiction inclined could go for but it's still a nasty addiction.

    Regarding the game itself: it's definitely an amalgam of city building games. It's more than just TSTO and Family Guy, it's also The Sims and other clones. There were gems from Clash of Clans alongside the donuts and clams, so the big three got a nod all at once there.

    I saw during the explanation part of the episode above the Canadian coins on the whiteboard were clams and donuts :)

    Well considering Cartman got a probe and the boys had to fight a giant robot Barbra Streisand in season 1 I dont the think the show has ever really been down to earth.

    I just watched that episode and decided to move to Canada. They are still satan-free, right?

    That's definitely proof of what games they were talking about specifically.

    Except it looked like the real devil banished the Canadian version. The likely options seem to be: Canada has no devil. The vice-devil got a promotion. The real devil did a hostile takeover and is now in charge.

    I got the impression that wasn't the first time Satan and Beelzaboot had tangled. No doubt the Canadian devil will be back with another nefarious scheme.

    yup making fun of TSTO. If you look on the board where they are discussing currency, they show doughnuts as a payment item
