Serious Sam 3 Explodes Onto Steam Workshop

By Nathan Grayson on November 2nd, 2012.

Wait! Before you shoot me, I just want to get your opinion on the quality of a couple beautifully aged wines from my cellar.

That right there? That’s Sir Buttersworth. His hobbies include savoring life’s most delicate fineries and single-handedly justifying the existence of Serious Sam 3‘s Steam Workshop support. Oh, and loping ever onward – to almost completely certain death – in dim hope of truly understanding that most top-hat-less of Others, Serious Sam. Can’t forget that. But he is not alone, neither in that indirectly suicidal pursuit nor his presence on Steam Workshop. Sam’s only just arrived on Valve’s mod-friendly service, but his page is already impressively populated.

Serious Sam 3′s Big Fat Expansion

By Alec Meer on October 15th, 2012.

Sam 'Quadknob' Stone

I know I played Serious Sam 3 at some point in the last three decades, but I’d be lying if I said I knew it was this year, or last year, or the year before… So many games, arriving so fast, sending me into a giddy tailspin of memories that all blend into each other, creating a miasma of settings, weapons, stories and muscle-memory control sets. The Unigame: that is where I live now.

Uh. Yes. Serious Sam 3. It has an add-on, it is called Jewel of the Nile, it is out tomorrow and it has a launch trailer.

Coming Soon: Serious Sam 3 BFE DLC For You And Me

By Nathan Grayson on July 10th, 2012.

But is that blood exploding, or is the explosion bleeding?

Hello there, Sam. Long time, no DLC. One of the nice things about putting words in your mouth and then regurgitating them for all the world to hear is that you can’t verbally eviscerate me for that awful pun. Oh Sam, you’re the greatest. So anyway, you say you’ve finally got some new content on the way for Serious Sam 3: BFE, huh? And it’s a campaign-extending to-do called “Jewel of the Nile”? And you think I have really awesome hair? Oh, do go on.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: One Free

By RPS on April 28th, 2012.

Lewie’s away being fitted for birthday hats and I’m all alone in the Savy Tower this weekend. I wasn’t sure what to do with myself. I was racing the bargain-bots down the endless stairs when Lewie appeared to me in a text message. Tony, you should probably find cheap games’ he said – in an impressive hat – so here I am. If you are in London on May 4th, please do come celebrate five years of Savygamer, more details and daily deals are on SavyGamer.co.uk. Hats welcome.

In the bucket today: Syndicate (the fab one), Gratuitous Space Battles, Total War packs, Serious Sam 3 and, oh, all sorts.

Serious Sam’s DRM Is A Giant Pink Scorpion

By John Walker on December 7th, 2011.

This is actually what Ubisoft's DRM developers look like.

Some companies’ DRM is stupidly cruel, punishing only those who have legitimately purchased the game, and not those who pirate it. Well, most companies’ DRM is that. Serious Sam 3′s DRM is brilliantly cruel, punishing only those who pirated it. By relentlessly pursuing them with a giant invincible armoured scorpion. As revealed by Dark Side Of Gaming, only those who unlawfully duplicate the game encounter this immortal enemy, who haunts them from the opening moments. You can see it in action below.

Wot I Think: Serious Sam 3: BFE

By Alec Meer on November 24th, 2011.

Sam he is.

The only honest first-person shooter is back. Is Sam Stone a one-trick pony? Well, yes. That’s the point, stupid. I’ve been blasting my way through the singleplayer campaign of Croteam’s latest, and I’m ready to tell you what I made of it. Though, If I was allowed, I would make each and every one of the following 1000-odd words ‘blam.’

The game doesn’t start until you get the assault rifle.

The game doesn’t start until you get the double-barrelled shotgun.

The game doesn’t start until you get the rocket launcher.

The game doesn’t start until you get the Devastator.

No, no, no the game doesn’t start until you get the minigun. Budda-budda-budda-budda-budda-budda-budda-wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

And: Serious Sam 3 Is Out Later Today

By Jim Rossignol on November 22nd, 2011.


The third Serious Sam game is released on Steam at 6pm today. TODAY! That’s so soon it’s almost right now. I guess we are working on a review of it. Are we? I am imagining that the other members of RPS are sort of shrugging non-committally in response to this question, but actually I have no idea, because I am sat in an annex of my kitchen typing this gibberish into the internet, and they are off being heroes in various corners of post-industrial England. Perhaps they actually are shrugging, but have no idea why, such is their psychic connection to the PC gaming blog… So spooky. Anyway, there’s a launch trailer below, and a hands-on from John over here. Read, watch, think, judge, decide.

Serious Sam 3: BFE’s eye-popping trailer

By Craig Pearson on November 7th, 2011.

That eye is going to pop, and I'm going to feel odd in the tummy.

New up-and-coming games writing wannabe Craig Pearson is with us this week. Say hello to the young Scottish chancer!

Croteam’s Serious Sam 3: BFE, which I hope stands for ‘Best Friends forEver’, has an exciting new trailer out where the guns are relegated to second place. In place of well-oiled gun barrels and polished, throbbing rockets it’s the grim melee assaults that strut confidently around in their chaps. It’s like the Queensbury Rules: 2nd edition, where “That no shoes or boots with spikes or sprigs be allowed”, has been replaced with “If your heart is ripped out and squeezed into a paste, you have till the count of ten to get back on your feet.”

The uncouth violence is below.

Serious Sam 3 In Not So Serious Delay

By Alec Meer on September 30th, 2011.

It's that spider-thing's fault. Get it!

Betrayal! Oh, the wound! Why, why, why? The eve of shamelessly excessive manshooting with a retro flavour but a hypermodern look was almost upon us, and then they only go and move the release date of Serious Sam 3: BFE back by a month. You’re not going to be playing this on October 18 after all. I BET THEY DON’T EVEN LOVE US AT ALL. I bet they don’t even like us. Wonder what crappy reason they’re going to fob us off with? So they can add more DRM? Because some suit at Microsoft told them to? Because they’re in a dark alliance with an evil retail chain? Or just because they’re cold, mean-hearted bastards?

Serious Sam 3 And Knuckles

By Alec Meer on September 20th, 2011.

Have you played that headless bomber iPhone game? I have. That's my story. I hope you liked it.

These Rich Knuckles / Serious Sam 3 helpline videos aren’t ever going to stop, are they? As long as that man has breath in his body, he will just keep on uttering catchphrases, puns, mum gags and snarky digs at the competition. And reassuring people that 16-player co-op does not count as an orgy.

(I heard a rumour they filmed 13 thousand of these videos back to back. 3,124 cameraman died in the process. Knuckles ate their festering corpses in order to keep going himself, though he left all the fingers. He doesn’t like fingers. That’s just what I heard, anyway.)

The Secret Of Serious Sam’s Pockets

By Alec Meer on September 12th, 2011.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA yourself

Part 2 of Croteam/Devolver Digital’s crazed Serious Sam 3: BFE Helpline videos is here! And we’re going to post it even though we posted the last one like five minutes ago or something! Because it’s very funny! And it contains the much-speculated-upon answer to how one man can carry so many cannonballs! Have a good evening!

Diapers Advised: Serious Sam 3 Trailer

By Adam Smith on September 6th, 2011.

A game full of giant monsters, a screenshot with no monsters at all. Croteam are good at marketing, I am not.

How many trailers manage to accurately convey a design philosophy while also being pretty damn funny? I’ve done some swift calculations on my abaci and mathomancy tells me that the correct answer is this one for Serious Sam 3: BFE. Despite pouring scorn on so many modern gaming conventions, the whole thing is so gleeful that it doesn’t seem spiteful, just completely and incurably insane.
