The site content was ready, but there were some technical difficulties in putting it live. If no more problems pop up, it should be up today. *fingers crossed*...

you're still having them; the site looks terrible in IE7

now before people go "lolll ie suxx!!1" keep in mind that its still the most used browser out there and every commercial site should be working in it - its not a percentage you can ignore.
most of the issues are simple CSS errors tho, and IE7 actually knows how css works so its not really a stereotypical IE problem


[edit] oh shi- the thing is entirely made up in tables. that constitutes as a techincal difficulty regardless of browser

The reason tables are still used widely is because it's incredibly hard to do the same sort of thing using only CSS. Especially in IE, which ****s up all the time. I should know, I have to do that stuff for work.

Lololol I'm 17 and I can't access the website because I'm underage.

Does this mean the game's rated M? That's quite high considering it's still the same game. I don't see a need for a GTA 4 rating really.

EDIT: Yup, it is, stupid ****ed up ESRB system.

EDIT #2: And yes, nice website...loved the testimonials.

I'm sorry but using tables for layout is widely frowned upon. Getting a site like that in css is easy as pie, as is getting it to work in both IE7 and FF. IE6 is a bit harder but still managable.
I should know, I have been doing that stuff for work for the past ten years.

What are you talking about? Serious Sam has always been rated M. You can't put constant gibbing and blood spewing into T rated games...

Same here, SS2 is 12+, SS1 16+, so that's why I'm wondering.

Had to test. Besides, only one more year and I'll be an adult.

I think it really sucks because SS is nowhere as violent as GTA 4, yet gets the same rating for no reason. And I'm pretty sure there are lots and lots of non-M rated games with lots of blood and gibs flying all over the place too (TF 2 for example, which also has much more vulgar stuff).

Hmm, I see. I guess my point still stands that the ESRB has been consistent with Serious Sam's ratings. No clue what PEGI will rate it.

I agree that the GTA games have worse themes and more realistic gang-violence situations, but that doesn't mean a game like this which has blood and gore shouldn't be rated M also. That's just how it's always been with ESRB, I seriously doubt you'd find a gorey T rated game. Maybe a bloody one, but not one with constant gibbing.

TF2 is rated M by the way. Portal is rated T, for reference.

16+ in PEGI.

PEGI seems to have marginally more common sense than ESRB.

There's an official XBLA web page up. Looks like Sam's getting a makeover.

You could probably use Hamachi and use the LAN mode.

Good idea! But still, is G4WL mandatory for normal online game? (What about other games that use G4WL, never played such myself?). I guess with G4WL you get online statistics for your achievements, how many hours have you played and similar, right?

Ooh, that is so ****ed up, tried to resolve problem for an hour or so with no results, registered my gamertag, then submited the form and it asked to login to my windows live account then service there went unavailable, I can't connect to G4W, it says i don't have gamertag assigned to my acc, when I tried to register, it said my password is incorrect, though I can login to Windws Live with the same password and now it says that my gamertag associated, but G4W says it's not it's messed up and now it says my gamertag is already taken though it's lost somewhere in space, **** that, **** G4W...
