The only stuff that i want to see from SS2 in the other series is the AutoShotgun. I like all the new stuff in SS3, so i can't imagine a SS title without all this things - sprinting, sledgehammer, mutilator, melee hits, sledgehammer, sprinting, mutilator, sledgehammer, sprinting, mutilator...

Return of dynamic props would be nice. SS3 environments feel very static apart from the destroyable scenery imo. I mean, nothing moves or bounces around save for enemy gibs, and the engine could definitely handle a few physics props thrown there and there too, since even SS2 had all kinds of physics objects all over the place.

Well, if they finally fix the multiplayer crash, then sure, it would be awesome. My Forgotten City for SSHD used props which I had to disable completely in Multiplayer because it crashed the clients. I heard there was such in SS2 as well.

And yeah it would be great. One thing I didn't like in SS3, that enemies became too "heavy". In SSHD when I shot a rocket near a beheaded enemy, the explosion threw it far away, it was soo cool. In SS3 if I do the same, enemies just collapse and die.

Yes, but it only happens when there's just way too many of them. The only time I've ever encountered it in Serious Sam 2 was in the user-made Tech Test map... and that map was never even intended to be played in multiplayer. The default Serious Sam 2 levels managed to pull off props without murdering clients.

Agreed, I loved the way blood spilled a very long (narrow) way if you split someone with a cannonball for instance.

Is there any way to edit the gibs and decals' properties like gravity? Someone should make an extreme gore mod for SS3.

Don't think so, I think they are in their destruction settings, which are also edit data.

Serious Sam without ruins and temples is like porn without sex. SS4 have to bring more of them, BUT on foreign planets. Pretty much a combination of SSHD and SS2. The possibilities would be nearly endless and the gameplay epic.

Except porn with sex is too common, so people may prefer it without it since they are oversaturated with what they got till then. And not to mention the fetishes like alien ruins, floating ruins, magical ruins, cyber temples or maybe temples with small front or temples with a big backyard.

Croteam has its own composer-singer and a whole metal band - Damjan Mravunac\Undercode. Using'em would be more practically and reliable, IMO.

If the next game will be Serious Sam 2 remake, Croteam should make a good plot for it, something in the style between SS3 and FE/SE.

However, it would still have a bunch of ideas from both SS1 Alpha and SS2, so like, the planets and Sirius itself would be mix of SS1 Alpha ideas and SS2 concepts. The art style should be more SSHD than SS3 though, same with the humor.

One idea I always liked was that there should be Skins for the Weapons. They would have the same stats, however, the weapons you find would fit the theme of the Planet. Like, on a Jungle planet, the Minigun would look like if it was made from wood and blowpipes. On Sirius, the minigun would be a super hi-tech laser minigun.

Another idea is that they should really adapt the Alternate Ammo from Next Encounter. They would be quite awesome and would make the game a lot more varied.

I also had an idea for a new highest-tier weapon, the Singularity Gun. It would use two regular ammo types: Electricity and Dark Matter Canisters. It would have two firing modes: The normal one (costing Dark Matter) would create a black hole that would be able to suck in a specific amount of small to medium enemies, killing them instantly. After you have some enemies sucked up (them being the third, kind unconventional ammo type), you could pressure them into a ball while holding the right mouse key - kinda like firing the cannon (with the screams of the monsters sounding out from the weapon), and then with creating a white hole, shooting out the compressed enemy cannonball with high speed that would cause even larger damage than the cannon. This secondary fire would cost Dark Matter when firing, and Electricity for compressing. The enemy ball's damage and size would be determined how many sucked up enemies you have compressed together. The gun would be only able to hold 10-15 enemies. It would be a stronger weapon than the Cannon, but harder and more inconvenient to use, so it would balance out imo. It would also use Mines as an alternate ammo, that could be deployed to suck up enemies on the field, and the collected to add to the "Enemy Ammo". In a way, this gun would be very powerful, but would use four kinds of ammo, three that is necessary. This would create the most complex weapon of the series as well. I quite like the idea of "complex weapons".
COPYRIGHT!!!! you are talking about a weapon in unreal 2 !!!!

1. Not really. I only played Unreal 2 like once in my life many years ago and I barely remember any guns in them. Or what it was all about. I only remember some ugly chick with huge boobs.

2. Ideas are not copyrighted and can't be copyrighted. It is my own idea, if others got the same idea, lucky them. If ideas would be copyrighted, then Serious Sam, video gaming or any sort of media wouldn't exist.

3. You know what is copyrighted? Ghostbusters.

No, not copyright. Just a copy. They can't get sued for creating their own thing, only it has the same function.

Frack. It didn't display the correct page... Damn you, S!, damn youuu!

My idea: after battle with Mental (serious sam 2) on the Universe is peace. On Earth Sam kill the last Mental enemies. But... 2 years later... Brother of Mental, Mad, create new army, more stronger, more terrible. He send aliens in the Antarctica. On the Earth, in every place change climate, more people suffer for unknown illness. "What's wrong" - ask people. Sam Stone go in Antarctica. He looks alien city, but there aren't Sirians? Who or what are they?
In first encounter Sam kill army of Mad, the last boss is MechaCentaur.
In second encounter Sam go fight on Solar System but still don't kill Mad. On every planet gets he news about Mad. On Neptun fights he with "Predator" but this was catched and implated him ControlChip.
In third encounter Serious Sam fight in 5 planet system of Milky Way. The last boss is MechaUgh-Zan V - very similar to ugh zan III but this is laser beam resistant. Sam come back to Earth with help. Only professor Brain find virus to MechaUgh-Zan. When Sam comes back to ugh-zan he escapes
The last encounter. Sam comes back to Earth. He gets news about ugh-zan V and goes to Mad quazar. He find Ugh-zan and the game start from fight with him. Next he goes to Terkinal planet (Terkinals is the race of aliens). Sam find Mad but first he fights with Sirian bosses (Mad raised bosses). Next fight with Dark Sam 1, Dark Sam 2, and Dark Sam 3. Now he fights with Mad and defeat him, after this every enemies automatically die.

so how it comes that you described the same look and purpose of the weapon from unreal 2, the singularity cannon which is from epic, so you can't use the weapon in any other game...


PS what ghostbusters video show has do with serious sam??

I actually never described its look. And again, it is just coincidentally a similar idea. I can use it in any other game I want, just as you can use a shotgun or a minigun, or a laser gun, or a lightning gun in any other game. Ideas are not copyrighted, nor they never be.

PS Pfhahahaha.

Derived ideas are okay, but direct copies are a no-no. An example of this is the Serious Sam Lasergun, which is basically a portable version of the laser gun the Millenium Falcon has that's green. It's different enough that you can easily say it's a different way to express "quad-barreled laser gun", even though it takes some cues from the Millenium Falcon's laser gun. Solais' Singularity Cannon is so different that nobody could really say it's a direct copy on how U2 "expressed" a huge energy cannon that can kill any enemy in one hit.

I doubt that Epic would care enough to sue in the first place anyways, even if they just copy and pasted the U2 Singularity Cannon.
