Serious Sam 3 DRM = Immortal Pink Scorpion

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...

Review: Serious Sam 3: BFE
by Jim Sterling

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 base hunger for reckless destruction and wanton violence, the kind that has permeated our entertainment since time immemorial. 

Enter Serious Sam 3: BFE, a game that saw an opportunity and took it. In a generation full of military shooters and quirky gimmicks, "Serious" Sam Stone knows exactly what you need, and is more than happy to deliver.

New Serious Sam 3 trailer contains a lot of blood

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 ...

Serious Sam 3: BFE gets its arsenal out in new trailer

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?

Fantastic Arcade: Serious Sam 3 may be the best one yet photo
Fantastic Arcade: Serious Sam 3 may be the best one yet
by Allistair Pinsof

[All this week, I'll be bringing game coverage from indie game festival Fantastic Arcade in Austin, TX. Be sure to check Flixist for my coverage of film festival companion Fantastic Fest.]

A Serious Sam 3 preview seems largely pointless. Yet, here I am. What a rebel!

As Jim Sterling said in his E3 preview, Croteam’s latest has all the silly enemies and weapons you want. It’s shaping up to be every bit as good as past entries. That’s all you can hope to hear. Except, I’m going to go one further and say it’s shaping up to be best one yet. Where previous Serious Sams felt like a placeholder for a new Doom (one that plays like the original Doom, that is), Serious Sam 3:BFE feels like the logical progression of the '90s-style, arena-based FPS.

I will care substantially less about a new Doom after this comes out. Read on to find out why.

Review: Serious Sam: Double D
by Jim Sterling

Although Serious Sam 3: BFE is the big release for Croteam this year, that's not the only adventure we get to embark upon with Sam "Serious" Stone. To promote the release of the upcoming shooter -- and get some attention for a bunch of cool indie devs -- a range of studios are creating unique Serious Sam games on various platforms. 

Perhaps the most notable entry comes by way of Mommy's Best Games, the studio behind unique indie shooter Weapon of Choice. The ever-offbeat Nathan Fouts brings us Serious Sam: Double D, and it's just like the Serious Sam you know and love... except different.
