Post Game Informer Previews Serious Sam 3: BFE

Some fans have been getting itchy about the latest sequel/prequel from Croteam. Well Game Informer has posted a preview of Serious Sam 3: BFE that will reassure fans that Serious Sam will always be Serious Sam (16 player co-op, free-for-all, no tactics, all man, priced to win, badass shooter).

Quote:
Were you thinking “Lots of circle strafing, silly weapons, and way too many enemies?” You wouldn’t be wrong. You also wouldn’t be wrong to drool over sixteen-player co-op in Serious Sam 3’s wide-open levels.

I circle-strafed the hell out of a whole lot of aliens in downtown Los Angeles just now. I think I chaingunned, shogunned, pistoled, and sledgehammered roughly three hundred bad guys in the course of a ten-minute hands-on demo of an Egypt-themed level of Serious Sam 3: BFE. The gameplay is so very Serious Sam that it would need a voiceover shouting the game’s title in your ear every four seconds to be any more obvious. The basic enemies have rocket launchers.

These previewers are bunch of Captain Obvious.

Everything they write we already know or have seen in the trailer, they say nothing new.

"The basic enemies have rocket launchers."

That's when you know that your game is badass!

Hope it is not something like the magic "missile launcher" the Rocketeer has in the original games.

That is how you separate the good previews from the bad ones. They have to say something, but not all of them pay close enough attention or ask the right questions to get something newsworthy to say.

The idea is that if even the weakest enemies have cool weapons then the game has to be better than other games where they don't.

True.

But, also true is this:
Cool does not equal fun.

Rocket launchers aren't cool for standard infantrymen, just as swords the size of continents aren't cool for whimpy teenagers (Final Fantasy...).
And if they were, that alone certainly doesn't make a game "badass."

Well, you'd probably prefer gigantic guns then, that would totally make the game badass in your book right?

LOUL exactly, don't even bother reading these reviews, let alone pinning them.

No, big guns don't make a game badass either.

I disagree, the Big Gun from Quake 2 was kinda badass... For it's time...

If you don't like them then don't read them. But you don't have any right to tell me or my site staff what do with them.
