Hippie Blood is funny! Bring it back please!

Why is it better than red or green blood? Because it makes the game less realistic which means more fun. If you want realism, try F.E.A.R... But let SeriousSam 2 stay more humor oriented and fun. Bring back Hippie Blood please!

The Over the top violence in Serious Sam, the red blood and the big amount of gibs, is a part of the humour in SS2, having hippie blood is funny for 5 minutes and after it's just ugly. It cut the fun of killing thing and to don't have a fiting color of blood. In SS2, different enemies have different color of blood, I found that quite cool.

I loved the hippie/flower blood in the other serious sam games, it was fun cool and very unique, but with this serious sam 2 most of the enemies have different coloured blood , guess they thought having one coulered blood with every enemy you killed throughout the whole game was very boring.

He wants flower blood. What is wrong with him having it? What do you gain by insulting him? This is why internet use should be controlled by application -.-

True, but getting all mad and saying that you're not going to buy a computer game simply because it doesn't have one of your favorite blood options is a bit silly. That's like saying that I would refuse to buy Dead or Alive 4 because one of the secret characters in the game is Spartan-458 from Halo, and I hate Halo. However, is having a Halo character in my favorite fighting game series going to stop me from buying the next installment of it? Heck no! You just have to learn to compromise, and unfortunately this guy can't seem to compromise.

So basicly, if I get it right, you are trying to say that you would like to play SS2, with ton's of enemies, all of them you have to kill in a cruel way, like with chaisaw or rocket luncher, when they got blown into milion pieces, and you want within all this massacre (not to mention that's the point of game) to have FLOWERS(!!!) intead of blood?
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

Well face it guys, the hippy blood is much cooler then the regular plain old red blood and gore :O

Serious Sam is unlike most games in a lot of ways. But somehow when it comes to blood and gore it has to be red? Why not add some more realistic weaponry, levels, physics and monsters... oh wait, there's no such thing as realistic monsters

Anyway, I'd for one would sure like to see the hippy blood return. During coop games it's hillarious to see huge 'fields' of flowerblood on the ground when you frag some huge monster.

That is just a matter of opinion.

Yes, you're right.
But you've probably played a ton of games like most gamers out there. And you can't convince me that you don't think the flowerblood thing is at least a lot more original then the beaten-to-death-horse that is red blood.

And that's what makes the Serious Sam series so much fun to play imo. They're not your everyday shoot 'em up, but they offer a completely different gameplay that has nothing to do with conventional 'rules'.

So if you ask me. Pple who prefer red blood over the way cooler hippy blood are just a bunch of rusted-solid old farts

I never tried to convince you to think that. I just think that the hippie thing is fun... some times. When I'm stoned and drunk or something.

It's fun, but why the hell does it matter? No hippy blood, so the game sucks? Why not go more extreme? "I don't like the color of the menu, so I won't buy the game?" It's irrelevant to the fun factor of the game. It makes no difference to the actual feel of killing the enemies, only visual. It makes no real difference. It's just a little eyecandy, nothing else...

I even found it annoying after a while...

And when you are playing the 2nd part and you seen it isn't there.
What would you do if your most liked feature isn't there?

Ok so your not going to buy the sequal to a game that you loved, just because theres no hippie blood, if thats your most liked feature, then wow, oh well your not going to buy a game because it doesnt have colorful blood, oh well, if you liked SSFE and SSSE and not going to buy this then thats your loss

how are you going to create a blood mod when no SDK or mod tools have been released???

I ask because i want to make a few changes to the guns (rate of fire, damage done, etc..) and afaik there is no way to do this without the mod tools...

Yet again, I say, patience is a virtue. The game just got out, and already you're not happy with it, and you want changes. Have some patience and respect, will you?

I took an effects file that did the flowers thingy and renamed it and relocated it as the bodyexplode effect. Then I packaged the changes for easy installation.

There are a few things that can be done, not much though.

That has to be the worst reason in the history of computer gaming since Sinclair Spectrum, not to buy a game.

You´re basicly saying that you wouldn´t buy a CD because it´s facing the wrong side in the box...

Never underestimate fleabay. Trust me. He gave the PainKiller developers fits. I think they were jealous because within a week he knew more about the script files than they did.
