“South Park: The Stick of Truth,” “Earth Defense Force 2025,”

After its studio closed and several delays pushed the project back, the latest game based on South Park has finally made it to shelves. The RPG parody South Park: The Stick of Truth is here, just before all its pop culture references start to lose their shelf lives. If you’re more in the mood for a cheesy, B-movie style shooter, Earth Defense Force 2025 will give you just that. Also, there are a slew of under-the-radar imports — led by One Piece: Romance Dawn — jockeying for your attention.
