Post GamePro Previews Serious Sam 3: BFE

Check out the latest preview by GamePro. They have revealed some new information about the "story" in Serious Sam 3: BFE that might interest fans of the series. They also commented on the highly explosive nature of the game.

Quote:
But along the way, you're going to blow a lot of stuff up. The game features grenade launchers, missile launchers, a big cannon-like weapon, a minigun known as “the peacemaker,” the ability to throw dynamite, shotguns, rifles, and much more. You'll also be able to perform melee attacks on enemies if they get too close and these over-the-top sequences were some of my favorite moments of the build I saw. You can rip out alien Gnaar's eyeballs, kick enemies into walls, and huge a sledgehammer to not only break in enemy's skulls, but break down walls in destructible environments.
So now, when I make my boom stick go boom, everything will go boom that I boom with my boom stick.. now that is seriously serious! Read more here at GamePro.

This part is confusing to me

Quote:
The game is actually a prequel to the franchise. Despite the efforts of our hero during the first two games, humanity has lost the war against the alien invaders. In the opening level, you're not trying to win or save humanity-- but just survive. Across a bombed-out Egyptian city you trek, picking off headless rocket soldiers and errant monsters as you try to make it to the time warp to send yourself back in time. The game then shifts back in time to the time period of the first Serious Sam game. This time, you'll prevent the alien invasion. This time, humanity will be saved. This time, you'll kill even more alien scum.
So what, this sounds like we will play TFE again ? They probably wrote it wrong, it is confusing.

The original game takes place after the war on earth was lost. Sam was sent back in time to fight against Mental's forces in an earlier time period. This would have changed the outcome of the war in the future, and maybe even prevent it from happening. Serious Sam 3 takes place just prior to when Sam was sent back in time.

@L-D: Yes I know that, but they wrote it in a way that can be interpreted differently:

It is like Sam went back in time in the first two games and failed, and now is back in the present. And then he goes back in time again after few levels in SS3 to fix things from TFE. Very badly written IMO.

It is pretty poorly written. It sounds like we're going back in time "again", i.e. as a response to Sam's failure to kill mental in FE and SE (?), but all before he goes back in time for FE. Yeah, I'm not sure this makes any sense. We should probably wait for another write up about the story.

In another interview, someone said time travel and time paradoxes will play a big role in SS3's story. So at least there's that.

What interview was that in? I think I missed something. As for the GamePro author's wording... not everyone is really a writer, no matter what their job is.

I still have high hopes for the "Lister paradox"

Wait, are they implying that the game actually starts after the events of FE and SE, with Sam having failed his mission, then goes back in time to a point during modern-day Egypt, before he went back in time for FE? It says you make your way to the time warp in the first level of the game. I thought the warp was the end-goal, to bring us back to where FE started.

Maybe I should just quit speculating and wait for a clearer explanation of the game's plot.

It's the Igromania interview that -RT translated for us (here). Reading it again, it looks like time paradoxes play a role in SS3, but I'm not sure about time travel itself:

Quote:
If you remember, previous games were about time travel. Here we'll explain how all this mess has begun. Sam will have to activate Timelock and kill the series' main villain Mental before he (Mental) begins conquering the Earth. Time paradoxes are really messed up, but you'll get used to them in our game.

Yeah, the guys at Gamepro obviously have no freaking idea what they're rambling on about.

That, or Sam 3 will feature a plot more stupid and incoherent than SS2.

Whoops, just saw that you pretty much said the same thing a few posts up. Guess that GamePro paragraph damaged my brain enough that I totally glossed over that part of your post.

Look guys, it really is very simple: Sam has to enter the Timelock to will have had killed Mental 5000 years ago, so he (Mental) cannot had will have invaded the Earth. Really basics of timetravel grammar, ya'know...

I hope Sam talks to himself again like he did in SE. That was great.
