Post IGN Previews Serious Sam 3: BFE

IGN has posted the first E3 preview of Serious Sam 3. They tell us that the game is its same fastpaced self, and confirm the presence our beloved cannon. So head on over and read it! Here's a little teaser.
Quote:
Besides the scant few additions, though, Serious Sam 3 is instantly familiar to longtime fans. Health doesn't regenerate but has to be found on the ground. Weapons are utterly ridiculous, ranging from your standard shotgun to a giant cannon that shoots man-sized steel balls. Hordes of enemies fill the screen, and managing absurd numbers of enemies at once is still a staple in Serious Sam 3. It's just as fast-paced, silly and mindless as it ever was.

Make sure to check out the new screenshots while you're there.

Darn, you were 4 minutes too fast.

That Gnaar picture looks cool:

I agree with Brute, these guys don't know what they are saying. The game looks great.

PS: What does "Unapologetically" mean, google can't translate it ?

Yes, it IS sorely missing from my life.
Luckily, Croteam will deliver what my life is lacking.

I wonder if my old 8800 GT (repaired with lego, metal wire, a vent and lot of fantasy three weeks ago) can handle this.
If it is as heavy as SSHD was, it is ok.

I am seriously getting curious about this game... Maybe I will stop being a lurker from this time on.

Mildly put. And I hope IGN realize that codblops uses iD Tech 3, and that a lot of modern games sacrifice graphical quality on the PC thanks to our friends the consoles. SS3 is the first game in years that genuinely makes me stare in awe at the screenshots.

Not to talk about IA errors and other not-funky stuff... In the last year i buyed two games that i found simply depressing, both for gameplay, and for bugs and graphics.
(in one of these games I saw "enable/disable autoaim" and I shouted >.<, in the other I finished the game in 3 hours and I cryed)
I know that SS3 will not be depressing.

Well, I'm not exactly the walking English dictionary, but I live with the idea that it means it's not something to apologize about, but the contrary, something you'd be proud about.

Eggs+flamethrower=omelette.

Or maybe it is a dead alien.

If we're gonna go in dark places where you need flashlight, at least have Sam making fun of Doom 3. And it better not be too cramped either.

We really need some gameplay footage.

Am I the only one who sees a resemblance between these two:

Sam v3.0

The Professor (Witcher 1)

Obviously the Professor has fewer poligons and apparently a wider chin, but... Maybe I'm just imagining things...

Holy crap. It looks like the final versions of the enemy models Nebezial was talking about are finally surfacing. Compare to the Gnaar we've seen in previous screenshots (I'm borrowing your shot from the enemies thread, AntonioR, if you don't mind):
