Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is almost here


8:00 PM on 10.07.2011



The lovely folks at Vlambeer (makers of the brilliant Super Crate Box and Radical Fishing) sent me the latest trailer for their upcoming addition to the Serious Sam legacy, which takes the fast-paced, backwards-running action of the first-person shooter and twists it into a retro-RPG. Allistair Pinsoff got hooked on the combination and I'm expecting it to be a hell of a lot of fun to play. 

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter will release on October 24th for Steam for a mere $4.99. It's Vlambeer's first commercial effort and I'm really pulling for them because this looks charming as hell.

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.more
