Serious Sam is one of those games that, frankly, just flew under my radar. When I first saw the packaging, everything about it screamed "Duke Nukem ripoff" - the sunglasses and grotesquely huge man-arms seemed rather telling - and overall, it just didn't seem like my kind of game. Being a black-clad longhair with a penchant for industrial music, I found myself too enamored with Doom and Quake; thus, Sam's was a seriousness to which I was never privy and, and as a gamer, it's a shame. According to friends, including those who share my aversion to "manly man-stuff," the game was a fun romp through the blood-stained fields of ultraviolence; thus, the trailer for Serious Sam 3 piqued my interest.
Judging by the video, Sam once again finds himself battling the alien menace - the lone hope in what seems to be humanity's darkest hour. Thankfully, the invaders have one thing against them: bodies held together by scotch tape an hope which, you'll be surprised to know, are no match for rocket-propelled grenades. One might well point out the implausibility that evolution would favor a race with a propensity toward being reduced to red mist; I would counter with the implausibility of an invasion by cyclopean extra-terrestrials.
So check out the rather NSFW trailer for Serious Sam 3. It's like a game of tag, but with death.
Serious Sam 3: BFE will be released on November 22nd
