G4 and their exclusives, eh? They’ve just gone and put up a new comedy commercial for the forthcoming Serious Sam HD. Much like the majority of my pun titles, it’s a bit Trying Too Hard, but it’s highly likeable. It also reminds me of the first Old Man Murray interview around the dawn of Serious Sam, especially the bit where they really don’t know what a crate is. I’m also reminded the time we howled down the phone until all of Edge came all around the future building to see the glorious final battle against Notorious mental. I’m also reminded of the time I actually tried to hand in my notice over some publisher backstabbing to do with Serious Sam. Ah, the memories.
I’m actually really looking forward to this. Serious Sam was a profoundly splendid first-person shooter, and nothing has been nearly as dumb and brilliant since.
And if you’re about to say “Painkiller”, don’t.
Also, I wonder if it’ll still have PC Gamer’s Steve Brown in the secret room at the start?
