Serious Sam 3 Explodes Onto Steam Workshop

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

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

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

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 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

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

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.
