Sam Getting Serious Again, Third Entry Coming In 2010
Most of you know why the name "Serious Sam" is supposed to be comedic. It becomes hysterically evident in the first 30 seconds of play: the entire purpose is to blow everything away and the onslaught of enemies is ceaseless. It's just colorful maniacal fun, really.
PlayStation fans probably won't list installments in the Serious Sam franchise among their favorites, but that's only because the games have been more prominent on the PC and Xbox 360. Hopefully, this will change when we hear more about Serious Sam 3, which we assume will be made for all three major platforms. According to Destructoid, Croteam boss Roman Ribaric has essentially confirmed that another bout of Serious Sam insanity is indeed on the way, and it should be available some time next year. "Serious Sam is happening for sure," he said. "It is currently planned to be finished in 2010." Oh, goody. Time to suspend all belief again and dive into the arcade-like FPS experience filled with wave after wave of assaulting baddies. Don't worry; you always have the most over-the-top weaponry in your inventory, so it's more a matter of simply staying alive rather than a lack of firepower. If you're not familiar, don't go in there expecting a grim, dark, serious FPS like Killzone 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. No, this is more like an epileptic cartoon with a disembodied gun.
Anyway, I wanna hear more about this, so stay tuned for more info. You know, if the game won't be too graphically detailed, maybe they could even release it to the PSN for a cheaper-than-normal price...
