“South Park: The Stick of Truth,” “Earth Defense Force 2025,” “Pac-Man Museum” [GAMES ROUNDUP]



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.
