There are parts of Antarctica that do not have snow all year. Also, the ice sheets change in size during the year. Some parts are more dangerous than others.

And besides! Why limit ourselves to Earth? There were other human colonies on planets all over that galaxy.

I don't mean there. SS2 was a weird side-trip through time.

But a pyramid was buried under the snow. An avalanche caused by Sam's cannon reveals it.

Yes, because during the whole game we only saw sand. As opposed to the ruins of ancient civilizations, cities in decay due to an alien invasion, suburbs, ancient museums, modern buildings based on real life. But sure, you saw only sand.

I also didn't say we had to go through Egypt again, I just said that Antarctica isn't a diverse setting. It shouldn't be used for more than two levels at least.

"Ice. If it's not sand, it's ice." - Sam "Serious" Stone in the first Atlantis level in The Next Encounter.

Apparently Atlantis is below Antarctica, and yes, there were only two "ice levels" like that, and one of them was a "lost level", and it already included weird alien architecture.

I never said I wanted to see sand as far as the eye sees, and with another Egypt setting there wouldn't be sand only, so you must be referring to something that already happened, i.e. Serious Sam 3.

Yeah, Land of the Damned was awfully short. The whole dark caves with tiny walkways, illuminated by lava and traversing rock bridges while lava debris was shooting around your face felt really... good. It gave me goosebumps the first time.

What I'm saying is that yes there are buildings that we visited in 3 but not only were the buildings hideous and bland too but half of the levels were just desert and an infinite abyss of sand. And there's buildings in Antarctica as well that are more attractive than the repugnant shacks in modern Egypt. They may just be research facilities that are not terribly exciting but that does not really matter because 4 is a work of fiction and Croteam can give Antarctica buildings. In fact other people have created some pretty awesome concepts for architecture for the continent.

Also, Antarctica doesn't have to be the only setting for 4. Also, we already had a SS game entirely set in Egypt before 3 which made 3 that much more boring and tired. Also, snow is more fun than sand to begin with.

I agree with most except the last part, where you say snow is more fun than sand. Your opinion, not mine.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind some sci-fi explanation for buildings on Antarctica, like finding Sirian tech and investigating it. Anything's fine when it's sci-fi, even futuristic technology in Egypt can make it interesting. I also think it's best for Sam games to have multiple themes, like TSE, SS2 and SS:NE.

Planet Kleer was one of the better episodes, until maybe Siriusopolis Downtown. That was incredibly well made.

I know. I'm saying that Planet Kleer was in my opinion the most atmospheric episode until I played Siriusopolis Downtown. I'm saying I think that level was the best looking.

There are so many locations to choose.

Now imagine a planet with a sky which is green during sunrise/sunset and orange during high sun. Except there are two suns, And day lasts only a few minutes! That would have a striking appearance.

I would love an episode on a planet where a day would only last an hour or two in real time, so the game would change the setting dynamically (and carry the daytime over between levels).

That's really good news. They should either use different ancient settings, like Rome, Greece, Persia, South America, alien settings (real alien settings, not just earth-like environments with an alien label slapped on it), or futuristic. Ideally a combination of all.

If Croteam wants to include modern setting again, it's still gonna suck if they'll just make another typical post-apocalyptic modern environments and won't add some traces of sci-fi futurism and actual signs of extraterrestrial intervention. I'm personally still mad that they scrapped these alienish kind of spikes from SS3 concept art booklet. One of the reasons why SS3 visual style sucked was because it looked just like a typical modern warfare, and not like the distant future (2104-2113 year, as mentioned in backstory).

Those alien spikes are brightly colored and pleasant to look at so obviously they are not appropriate for SS3.

So that means the game will likely take place on historical landmarks on planet Earth. Rome, Paris, maybe we'll be blasting inside the Manchester Cathedral and Croteam will get free publicity because people will get all huffy about it on the internet.

Did you even play the games? Sam left Earth in a rocket at the end of TSE, no need for portals. And it is in the backstory that Mental resides on Sirius right now.
