The Talos Principle is a puzzler that requires deep and philosophical thought. Serious Sam is, well, it's pretty much the exact opposite. That's why it's so excellent that the latter will be doing voicework for the ...
Players who took the time to really explore The Talos Principle might recognize the name Uriel. Though the base game is seen through the eyes of a particular simulation participant, evidence of others exists in the form of QR...
Darren's review of The Talos Principle intrigued me. Even if the game had turned out poorly, a philosophical puzzler from the studio behind Serious Sam was something I just had to see. Fortunately, it's good. Eight-out-of-ten...

Croteam's sharp departure from running and gunning The Talos Principle is out on Steam today. I think it is great, and I am not alone. It is probably the best puzzle game to come out this year, and it is certainly the game t...

The Talos Principle was revealed at E3, from which Darren Nakamura got a nice preview of the game. The latest from Croteam (Serious Sam) seems more Portal than shotgun eviscerator and will be available this yea...
Nestled in a parking lot across the street from the convention center in Los Angeles was Devolver Digital's phalanx of air conditioned campers. The publisher had a good mixture of highly anticipated titles like Hotline Miami ...

Despite Serious Sam 3 promising to fight piracy simply by being an awesome game, it turns out that developer Croteam has snuck some DRM in there. Fortunately, it's the best kind of DRM -- the kind that only affects illegal c...
As games become increasingly complex and try to explore new, innovative ideas, the market is ripe for a game that takes us back to square one. Despite our lofty ideals and desire to treat videogames as art, there's still a ba...

Sick of turgid military shooters and po-faced space marines? Do you just want to shoot a lot of things while a mentally stunted meathead laughs in the face of violence? Well, Serious Sam 3: BFE is ready and waiting.  Th...
Remember when Croteam's Serious Sam 3: BFE was hit with a delay? I know, we all cried a little inside at the fact that we wouldn't be able to rip out the eyes of Sam's enemies with nothing but our bear hands, or get to ...
Here's a new trailer for Serious Sam 3: BFE, showing off the juicy selection of weapons that Sam Stone will use to make mincemeat of Mental's ugly thralls. From assault rifles to lazer guns, you'll have plenty to play with.  The game's shaping along nicely from what I've played of it, and I expect a diamond in the rough. Who's looking forward to this one?

When I play a Serious Sam game, here is what I want: Waves of ridiculous enemies. Loads of silly guns. Nothing getting in the way of the previous two things. When I played Serious Sam 3: BFE, I got exactly what I wanted. If you're a fan of the series, you'll get it too.
The "eye-popping" part of the headline was a most hilarious joke, since that's actually what happens in the video. Oh, how we laughed. In an age of cover-systems, health regen and endless gimmickry, it's always refreshing to...
