But more importantly, without Serious Sam 2, where does the rest of the canon lie?

Wait a minute, maybe I can work this out, but I'll need a little help. Does Serious Sam Advance take place before or after The Greek Encounter? And does Kamikaze Attack make the events of the PalmPilot port non-canon?

None of those games are canon.

Only SSHD and SS3 right now. And SS4 once it's out.

The only canon games are Croteam-made (excluding SS2), i.e. BFE, FE, TSE as well as part of the backstory. All the other games (NE, Advance, indies e.t.c.) are spin-offs and thus non-canon or at least form their other multiverse.

This. None of the games released right now are canon besides BFE, TFE and TSE. We'll have to see how TBD fits into the story once it's released.

Oh, Solais, you card! You always crack me up with your crazy statements!

But seriously, does The Next Encounter take place before or concurrently with The Dark Island?

It takes place during the two different islands of the Dark Island campaign. If you choose the wrong boat, Next Encounter will be forever non-canon.

So Sam is stuck on a non-moving boat with a static Reptiloid Highlander on a nearby small hill forever?

Solais, do you think SS4 will be successful enough to generate a sufficient amount of resources in order to make the SS2 remake a reality? I'd like to know what you honestly think. Me: yes.

Considering how much praise and sales Talos got, I get the feeling that Talos 2 will be the game that'll push them into getting the resources needed to make the SS2 remake a reality.

I don't know how good Talos 2 would be. It's one of those games that works best as a one-off hit, making more of it would either have to add many new elements and improve everything to make it work or be more of the same where it feels like it's being milked.

There's a lot of different possible ways for Talos 2. I'm pretty sure that both writers and Croteam guys already know what to put in the sequel to make it successful and superior to the first game.

I hope we will se something like in SS xbox intro panic,enemies ruining everything for no reason and Sam just walking to them like badass. In BFE we have seen dead planet there is nobody left. Maybe is good for Serious Sam 4 to be prequel. Maybe Croteam want to give us more reason to kill mental. Remember SS3BFE ending or last man on earth cutscene? Before that we just wanted to kill mental because earth is under attack now we want kill mental because he exterminated humans and destroyed earth.

The impression I'm getting is that Croteam wants to completely redo SS2 from scratch, as opposed to the mere graphical makeovers of the HD Encounters. So, if Croteam were to make a SS2 remake, what if they reworked the story to make it a canonical sequel to TSE? And while they're at it, they can just call it SS5. It would be kind of like how Squeenix just said fuck it and turned Final Fantasy Versus XIII into Final Fantasy XV.

WHAT? Now there's going to be a series of Talos? So, "next" SS would come out every 10 years?

Man, I know I not mean to bring it up... but wouldn't all that "time" in doing Talos would better invest in that ____ ____ in SS?
