South Park is now available online to watch. And it’s legal! You can watch all epsiode from all seasons, from the first episode in 1997 to the latest that was televised on TV in USA last week. This is great news for all South Park fans.

To watch Sout Park, goto http://www.southparkstudios.com/. So you don’t need your favourite torrent program to download it anymore. The episodes can’t be downloaded, but you stream them in your web browser.

I found this news on NRKbeta.

A few quotes from the South Park Digital Studios pressrelease:

When asked about the launch of the new site, Stone and Parker said, “We got really sick of having to download our own show illegally all the time so we gave ourselves a legal alternative.”

Anne Garefino, General Manager of South Park Digital Studios, had this to say about the future of southparkstudios.com, “One goal in moving forward is to make every episode of ‘South Park’ available world-wide. Currently, full episodes are not available in the UK, Australia and a few other foreign territories but we’re not far off from making that happen. We have some contractual issues to sift through but we’re getting there.”

Easter barbeque


My sister had desided that we should barbeque today, no matter how the weather was. Well it started to snow and it snowed a lot (it’s Easter). But we made some hotdogs and had a nice time. It was a bit cold on the fingers tough, but other than that, it was a blast.

Xbox 360: Dreamfall coming to Xbox Originals on March 24

Dreamlfall is coming to Xbox Originals on March 24 and will cost 1200 points. According to Gamescoreblog.com it will only be available in US, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, India, Australia, New Zealand.

It’s a bit strange that the game is not available in Norway, since Dreamfall is made by the Norwegian company Funcom. But I’ll hope the game will be available in more countries soon. I’m for that all games should be available in all regions. Anyway, here’s the description of the game:

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, winner of multiple E3 awards as the best game in its genre, is the continuation of a saga that began with the award-winning The Longest Journey. In Dreamfall, prepare for an epic journey of exploration and adventure as you venture through a thrilling and emotional story line.

Dreamfall features a fully interactive world where beautiful music, stunning graphics, fascinating characters, and unparalleled gameplay variety promises to bring the adventure genre into a new era. Prepare for a spiritual, fantastic, and powerful gaming experience.

  • Unparalleled variety: Use your brains or your brawn—sneak, fight, or talk your way through the many challenges the game offers. Be polite or rude, threaten or sweet talk—in Dreamfall you make the choice, resulting in a game where you never quite know what to expect next.
  • Three characters: Experience the story from three separate perspectives, and learn how their destinies blend together in an epic finale. Each character has unique abilities and world views, giving you constant gameplay variations.
  • Three worlds: Dreamfall spans three beautifully realized worlds, multiple chapters, and a stunning number of detailed locations. Travel across a futuristic version of our earth, journey into a magical fantasy realm, and unravel the mysteries of the Winter.
  • Unique interaction: Bridging the gap between the classic “point and click” adventure game (where you could click on any given point at the screen) and the action adventure (where you need to move up to an object to interact with it), Dreamfall introduces the brand new focus field feature. In this easy-to-use context-sensitive interface, scan your entire visible environment as seen by the characters, and use it to get information on far away objects and trigger remote gameplay opportunities.
  • Thrilling story line: Dreamfall delivers a mature and compelling story line that mixes the futuristic, fantastic, and spiritual with a tale of murder, deceit, and a conspiracy threatening our very existence. Bringing the classic adventure game into the world of the modern action game, Dreamfall is a rare and special story experience.
  • Stunning sounds: Listen to an emotional and epic soundtrack in 7.1 Surround Sound. Hear gripping voices as recorded by more than 50 professional actors, and enjoy soundscapes bringing you to the edge of your seat.
  • Wide-ranging appeal: Half of the players of the original The Longest Journey were women. With its cinematic approach, believable characters, mature story line, and easy-to-grasp interface, Dreamfall is a game that any teenager or adult can pick up and enjoy, regardless of their gaming background.
