Time management guide

Serious Sam 3 screenshots are ready to rock

New screenshots for Serious Sam 3: BFE, everybody! As far as I can tell, they still haven't told us what BFE stands for. "Beyond First Encounter" makes the most sense, since Serious Sam 3 is a prequel, but I'm hoping Croteam either A) comes...
