Jews in the News: Wonder how many hit dice we get?

Thanks to the fine folks at Joystiq for this one. Obsidian Entertainment, a video game company that specializes in making above average sequels of other people's IPs (Knights of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout: New Vegas), is currently working on an RPG (that's Role Playing Game for all the n00bs) based on South Park. This is a big deal for them since it's not a sequel, but it is someone else's IP so it's also kinda par for the course?

Anyway, Obsidian has announced that along with the standard RPG professions of Paladin, Wizard, Rogue, and Adventurer, gamers will be able to adopt the class of Jew when the game releases sometime next year (it is a South Park game, so y'know, it's a joke and should be taken as such. The concept is a joke, that is, not the idea that there will be a Jew class in the game. That's totally happening).

No word on what advantages the Jew class will bestow, though no doubt something with money will be involved. Dammit.

In the meantime, those of you who just have to play as a Jewish character right-effing-now should download the excellent Pinball FX2 game for 360/PS3. Round 2 of the Marvel Comics themed tables dropped yesterday including one based on the Jewish (though yet to be profiled) Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled, non-nerdy programming.
