Xbox 360 owners get a chance to revisit the 2001 classic first-person shooter, now with much fancier graphics, with the release of Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter this week on Xbox Live Arcade.

Take your thinking caps off and settle in with some mostly mindless thing-shooting action, all for the low price of 1200 Microsoft Points. Which actually works out to $15 for me, a U.S. Dollar user, which may not be as low as those fictional Microsoft bucks led me to initially believe. Dammit.

If you can't wait until Wednesday to play Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, perhaps the PC version will suit your needs. More details on the Serious Sam remake at the official Xbox web site.
