Looks alright.

Rich Knuckles, I hate you.

Croteam is the Andy Kaufmann of the video game developer world.

Vivid is what the game should look like normally.

I hate every thing about the announcer in this video

Posted by Syndro

god why does this man have to be so incessantly annoying? better question...why has no one strangled him yet?

This is truth.

Good grief.

Posted by onan

Nvidia might, maybe have a reason to put out a video like this to show people how to work the control panel.

If a game developer feels the need to showcase their graphics options menu for lack of anything more interesting to tout, they've got other things to worry about.

The way he pronounces "noir" makes me angry. Also, I don't see those presets adding anything, but I guess, good for them for putting them there?

Posted by Village_Guy

Oh man... I wish L.A. Noire had more Rocket Launchers.

Posted by Ghostiet

That dude was actually pretty funny. I chuckled at the L.A. Noire jab.

Posted by Sammo21

The LA Noir ribbing was actually kind of funny.

Posted by SomeJerk

Oh. It's meant to be ironic right?

Posted by Forkstik

You have to give credit to Croteam for making a trailer about the options menu

So I see you didn't get the joke.

What the fuck is "Nore?"

Yeah I was just about to say that Vivid looks like what the old Sam games looked like palette-wise. Good thing there's the option I suppose.

Posted by avidwriter

Ok.... doesn't make the game better.

Posted by Eaxis

Vivid seems right.

Hit the tagline, Jeff.

Then why do you love him?

If only more games had options like these, I could make Fear 2; a game that was way too colorful, more desaturated as is far more suiting of its bleak dark tone and stuff like GTA4 which was god damn horrifically brown and needed color desperately so a vivid setting would have done wonders.

Posted by NoelVeiga

Some dude just talked to me about the brightness and contrast settings in a videogame for almost three minutes.

I lead a strange life.

Posted by captain_clayman

vivid looks awesome :D

Posted by Klei

As stupid as this vid can be to some, it actually made my game look 3x times better. I absolutely dreaded the super realist look of Serious Sam 3, but with the vivid colors option, now it actually looks like a Serious Sam game, and I enjoy it much more.

I guess not. I'm also not spending the $40 they're asking for this game, so hopefully that sense of satisfaction is enough for them.

Posted by JackSukeru

I wish more games had a vivid option, I'm a sucker for bright and colourful games.

Also it's not "nor" it's "no-are".

I think it's actually pretty cool that they've included something like this. I'm not sure that it really needed to be a Rich Knuckles trailer, but good on them though for writing jokes about colour correction though =|

Posted by dyong

No colours anymore I want them to turn...?

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

Jeeze, did they hire Mr. Caffeine to do this?

Is this guy Croatian?

Posted by Banananner

@Knigge: I believe he was a man fairly popular years ago, a feller you may call a hip-hopper or a rap man. Either that or it's an old old wooden ship used by the Spanish to colonize America.

Posted by Evil_Bunny_Hat

literally the most pointless video god that was a waist of time

Posted by scottygrayskull

I can't see using anything but vivid for that classic Serious Sam feel, but it's nice of them to include the options.

Posted by bucifer

Yeah, who hasn't played LA NOR, I mean nor films are so interesting to watch. I'm glad I can give SS3 a nor color scheme

Posted by millidooms

I thought the video was funny. The jokes were quick enough not to be annoying if they were bad (but most weren't) and the videos main point was still clear. Love Croteam for all the options.

Posted by Hero_Swe

Croteam has probrably the best PR in the industry by far.

Oh and the game is amazing too :P

Posted by ParchedThroatCottonMouth

You damn Europeans need to shut up.

Posted by Bats

@Lazyaza: Dunno if you have the PC version of GTA4 or not, but on the PC they do come with the option to increase color saturation and such, and actually can make GTA4 look a lot like the previous GTA games in terms of colors.

Rich Knuckles is right, I did wish LA Noir had more rocket launchers.

Posted by dudeglove

well, okay?

Posted by Tordah

I was wondering why the game didn't look quite right. Vivid is definitely more in line with the previous SS games, and thus the way to go.

Posted by GregIsRad

I feel like they recruited the guys who did You Don't Know Jack onto their marketing team.

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

They should've done black and white with red only.

Posted by Obsurveyor

Next week he is going to make a video about how you can change the controls, including any key on the keyboard!

In all seriousness though, what was the point of this video and why is it on Giant Bomb? He was not funny. I do not think he could have picked a worse subject to try, and fail, to be funny about. The writing was especially poor. He acknowledged at the beginning of the video that he was saying "options" too much and then goes on to do it everywhere else with other phrases.

Posted by Games5522

They should totally have a trailer about the advanced performance options in the game to show that these guys are one of the last few developers to give a shit about their PC fanbase.
