The first time I died in SCUM, I was exploring a military base for supplies. After scrounging a backpack and some high quality gear, I stepped outside and right into the path of a giant goddamn robot. It shot me, and I fled into the forest. Unsure what to do, I sat by a river until I died. The second time I died, I…
The developers at Croteam, the studio that makes the Serious Sam games, are looking to do the unthinkable with the fourth numbered installment in the series: render 100,000 enemies on screen at the same time. Watching a hands-off demo of the game behind closed doors at E3, I was excited to see that feat in action, and…
The Talos Principle, one of the smartest puzzle games from the last few years, is getting a sequel, the developer announced today. It’s unclear when it’s coming (or where in the story it’s set), but this is very good news.
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.
