Serious Sam HD Giveaway Winners Revealed!

Posted by Ryan (1263 posts) -

Last week our friends at Devolver Digital hooked us up with a grip of XBLA codes for the recently released remake of Croteam's first-person classic, Serious Sam HD. As is the way of our people, we challenged you to tap into your vast reserves of image-editing skills to produce the most serious Sam you could, using those very XBLA codes as the proverbial carrot-on-a-stick to implicate you all in our own ridiculousness. Suffice it to say, you've all done us proud--yes, even those of you who spent what appeared to be 45 seconds in MS Paint in service of a Totally Not At All Tired reference to Heath Ledger's Joker. So, congratulations to everyone!
 
While I'd like to say we're all winners here, we've only got 10 codes to give away, and by definition, it's the people who win those codes that are the winners. So, without further ado, here's our winning list of the winningest winners! If you see your name here, check your Giant Bomb PM inbox, you should be receiving a code good for one copy of Serious Sam HD for Xbox Live Arcade shortly. Also, winner winner winner winner winner. Winner!
 
Sergotron can't decide who should be squad leader. Can you blame him?


Brogue happens to know that they do speak English in What, little buddy.

 
Hsvlad is a thinking man's Sam.


GregSTORM is a nihilist, Donny.


Video_Game_King impresses at parties with his ability to speak fluent Morse code.


ClamFTW knows that sometimes the stupidest joke is the best joke.

 
MurderByDeath wins because we couldn't choose between him and GregSTORM.


DrBashir doesn't need a tricorder to know that this is messed up.

Brianschomburg was the body model for Sam the Eagle, blue arms and everything.

Boooo for the ham joke.  The rest are pretty good.

#6 Posted by HatKing (5568 posts) -

I say boo to the ham and the fact that there are two A Serious Man jokes... only one of them should win.  I guess I was setting myself up for disappointment even submiting something.

Hooray, I won! I shall make my speech in fluent Morse code:

Congrats to the winners! Great stuff all around!

#14 Posted by Pazy (2553 posts) -

Congratulations to the winners, though I have to congess Im slightly dissapointed that two people won for the same joke (which I sadly dont get).

#15 Edited by sopranosfan (1935 posts) -

They were good, personally I would take the lesser of the Serious Man posters and gave it to the game cover with I believe it was Solid Snake, Altair, and Master Chief on it.

#16 Posted by CitizenKane (10501 posts) -

Congrats to all of the winners!!!

#17 Edited by hsvlad (142 posts) -

 Woo, I made a meaningful contribution to something. Now I can die alone and scared but mildly fulfilled.
In all seriousness (no pun intended) these photoshop contests are fun, more of this sort of thing please.

I don't really agree with the winners so much, but I guess the good Joker entrees got snuffed out just out of unoriginality.

#27 Posted by Afroman269 (7388 posts) -

That last one is awesome.

#28 Posted by Hector (3346 posts) -

That cat is scarrryyy!

no love for clarissa explains it all eh? The creepiest Sam of all. : /
#31 Posted by ApolloBob (570 posts) -
@Orbi: Got this impression too - SA all the way.  Are any of the Giant Bombers goons - could it be?
#32 Posted by mustachioeugene (483 posts) -

great contest, hope we get some more of these type of photoshop-offs.
 
congrats to the winners

#33 Posted by OmegaPirate (5518 posts) -

Good job duders!

#34 Posted by Nathando (4 posts) -

Nice work all around.  Although Serious Ham made me do a spit-take.

#35 Posted by Jeffsekai (7017 posts) -

Pretty sure at lest 2 of them are stolen.

#36 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Lol. Sergotron's still my favorite, although I think Brianschomburg's or DrBashir's are the best.

#37 Posted by AllisonByProxy (47 posts) -

Thanks for the win! This was very SA-like and I am indeed a goon!  Grats to all the other winners as well as the others who entered.

no doubt no doubt
 
I used Screech from Saved by the Bell. Looks like they don't appreciate 90s television
#39 Posted by Skytylz (4015 posts) -

I don't think i'd call them winners....

#40 Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -

While I'm not at all mad I didn't win.
There were several other pics that should be up there. Hyperslugs Nolan Norths S.A.M for instance.
But Congrats to the winners none the less, Even the one that doesn't have a Sam in it. (I lol'd)

#41 Posted by seenew (27 posts) -

@Chavtheworld: 
 
I didn't even see yours. I just thought of Morse, went to Morse code, and then made that in a few minutes.
#47 Posted by Bollard (5027 posts) -
@Video_Game_King:  
 
It's fine. Yours was better anyway, it didn't need the requirement of swearing to make it funny. And yes I did translate it all.
#48 Posted by Crono (2620 posts) -

Brianschomburg is my favorite

#49 Posted by Nintendude (284 posts) -

Nice stuff, some of them are really good.
