Arrow Serious Questions about Serious Sequel Chapters

Is there a serious chance that there will be HD Versions of Dark Island and the Next Encounter (also for PC)?

Seriously, why are there key settings and spare weapon slots for SE Wepons in SS-FE HD
and why is there a chapter selection with only Egypt, the Demo Level and very much free place for serious new chapters?
Does it mean SS-SE HD will be somehow integrated into SS-FE HD like a non-standalone addon
or maybe it could seriously mean, each of the three serious SE chapers would be a DLC for SS-FE HD?

1. Seriously, why are there key settings and spare weapon slots for SE Wepons in SS-FE HD
2. and why is there a chapter selection with only Egypt, the Demo Level and very much free place for serious new chapters?

1. They could be planning on letting you blend FE HD and SE HD when SE HD is released. But it is kinda funky.
2. For when the editor is released. Custom campaigns. Also, see point 1.
3. Possible, again.
4. No. SE has been announced as it's own collective title, and will be released simultaneously as SE.

I would really REALLY want to see a HD Next Encounter. It would give it the potential to be more than just a forgettable, disappointing console shooter.

Me too, I think it should be done by Climax.

IIRC the A.I. in TNE was slightly different than PC versions. Because, enemies like that giant demon horse would fly around, and if it wants to, it could land down too, and it could do a fire sweep too, fly by and hurl a jet of fire at you. Some other enemies too, but not too much alterations, just to give enemies some abilities to do, while they're mindless as hell. (I suck at explaining, but what I'm trying to say is that... A.I. does have some tricks in TNE, just some.)

As for PC version, they really should add gnaars, pump action shotgun and some other classic enemies

Adding extra enemies and the pump shotgun would be a bit too much. I would be content just having it in HD on the PC.

Having a pump-action shotgun is too much? I think I'm glad I never played Next Encounter.

I didn't like it at first, but I got over it, and it was okay, you had enough weapons, and schofield pistols (replaced colts btw) held 12 bullets in each clip, as opposed to 6 bullets in colts. Combine that with another pistol, and you have 24 bullets in each pistol for firing...yeah. IIRC if you tap R2 (was it L2? I can't remember, and I am talking about PS2 version as I dunno how it works for GC version) quite fast when holding double pistols, you could fire really fast with them then, just be sure to tap quite fast instead holding them, the rate of fire that way is same as the colts from the PC versions when you hold the button.

Ditto. I'd be interested to give TNE a play but PC is my only gaming platform.

Rob on Youtube did said he'd do a TNE, but in the future, he's busy and he's doing other walkthroughs...

And that guy made some great walkthroughs, do check his (but incomplete + put on hiatus) Serious Sam XBOX walkthrough. (he's elbryan42 on Youtube)

I didn't say it was too much, I meant it would force the devs to rebalance a lot of the game, since if you had the pump shotgun, a lot of the enemies would be much easier to kill (I won't name any enemies here because I don't want to spoil anyone's playthrough in case TNE is ever ported in HD). In any case, here's hoping for an HD Next Encounter (not that it may actually end up being created).

Now that you mention it, I agree with you. Besides, it wasn't too bad w/o a pump action shotgun.

Unlike other weapons in TNE, this is the only weapon with alt fire (rather than alt ammo).

Shockroach!

One of my favorite weapons. Piss weak, but it was good picking off enemies at range (like pit drones or a lone black op).



Half Life: Opposing Force FTW, my favorite HL game ever.

It shoots a gigantic laser beam of death! It's my best friend! It was just disappointing once I learned the first time you get it is toward the end of the game.

End of the game...? I found the Sirian Power Gun in a lost level, in Feudal China, second lost level you can unlock, okay not the second...but I managed to unlock 2 Feudal China lost levels while I was scoring on serious in Ancient Rome!

On difficult difficulty, I didn't found so much use of it, enemies have too much health on that difficulty, one black op soldier could eat 8 zaps before he gets gibbed, no matter if it is headshot or not. (and Voltigores can survive up to 45 zaps!)

But it is good to pick off headcrabs and other Xenians.

Well I found it too (and I still remember TINY, TINY BUTTONS!), but when I went through I waited to beat the game and then do the lost levels. It's not like you get to keep the gun when you resume the normal game (or even do any other secret levels). And you only get to use it for a short time...

The shockraoch was powerful on single enemies. But anymore than one, and he "overheats", or depleats if you will, too quickly.
