I saw two inventive, perception-centric games at PAX last week that got me thinking about how much we take for granted when playing games in a first-person perspective. In one of them, you're playing as someone who think he's a god. In the other, you're getting yelled at by one. Both of them challenge you to believe…
In these heady days of Skyrim, Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, have we overlooked a hidden gem in Serious Sam 3: BFE? Commenter DocSeuss seems to think so, and he'll tell you all about it in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.
And you thought there weren't any more games coming out before Christmas. Croteam has unleashed Serious Sam 3: BFE upon the somewhat suspicious PC gaming masses, flipping the bird at today's more technical shooters in favor of old school shooting shit all to hell.
Originally scheduled for release in the middle of next month to compete with Battlefield 3, the third installment of Croteam's less-than-serious PC shooter franchise will now hit in mid-November, just in time to take on Modern Warfare 3.
And here I thought the headless kamikaze's in the Serious Sam series were unwilling test subjects. Turns out they're normal folk, just like you and me, only without heads. Oh, and their hands are bombs.
The first trailer for Croteam and Devolver Digital's Serious Sam 3: BFE has exactly what you'd expect from a Serious Sam game: guns a-blazin', alien invaders, screen splattering gore and a total disregard for taking cover.
Lacking any meat above the neckline and hands replaced with ticking time bombs, the headless kamikaze of Serious Sam fame has come a long way over the past decade.
While Croteam occupies itself crafting the third entry in the Serious Sam franchise, indie developers Mommy's Best Games, Be-Rad Entertainment, and Vlambeer take Sam places he's never been before in three new indie games.
Make the next Serious Sam game official. Developer Croteam is bringing the next entry, Serious Sam 3: BFE, to PC and consoles this summer, a "glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters," they say.
Here's your first look at Serious Sam 3. Not much of a look, but then, first looks rarely are!
2011 looks to be the year of explosive, testosterone-fueled, old-school shooters, now that Serious Sam developer Croteam has pegged its next game, Serious Sam 3, for a summer release.
Developer Croteam has ported its 2001 first-person shooter Serious Sam: The First Encounter to Xbox Live Arcade with Serious Sam HD. The game is a time capsule. A really, really shiny one. Covered in bloody body parts.
Feast your eyes on the latest set of screens for Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, the high-definition makeover of the tongue-in-cheek shooter, coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PC this fall.
Serious Sam developers Croteam have told Eurogamer that in many ways, the third game in the series will stay true to the series' roots. Well, except for the series' trademark "cartoon" graphics. Those have got to go.
CDV Software and Majesco are giving players a chance to put their words in Serious Sam's mouth, with the Serious Tweet contest.
Developer Croteam is bringing Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD to Xbox Live Arcade this summer and, eventually, the PC. But what about the other platform capable of handling the seriousness of this first-person shooter, the PlayStation 3?
Developer Croteam has worked up a new version of its CroTech Engine in order to deliver Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD to the Xbox Live Arcade.
