Firstly, fear not, our North American Ego-readers. We will be privy to Stan’s dad getting a damn good anal probing, just as our forefathers intended. Our friends in other regions, though, won’t be so lucky.
Or they will, depending on how you feel about seeing fictional cartoon man-ass.
South Park, as we know, isn’t the most subtle or politically correct of shows. It will make its sweartastically offensive jokes, and it will give no effs if they aren’t appreciated. Inevitably, then, there will be casualties to the Big Ol’ Hammer of Censoring. But not particularly widespread ones, in the case of The Stick of Truth.
As IGN reports, this is limited to European, African and Middle Eastern console editions of the game. Upon reaching a certain point, a static ‘censored’ screen will appear, describing the depravity at hand and kicking players in the nuts because they can’t see it. Those poor bastards will never get to witness Randy’s butt probed ‘with violent force,’ which is quite the outrage.
Most entertainingly, the Australian release has the anal probing scene replaced by a text box and "a still image of a koala crying."
