I'm sure it's been mentioned by someone else by now.. but it's Before First Encounter. (The First Encounter being the original Serious Sam game).

Also, this is the game Duke Nukem Forever should have been. Classic run and gun first person shootering. Pretty simplistic and not particularly deep, but decently fun with an old school charm.

@Abendlaender: You had to reload the revolvers in First and Second Encounter.

I think after watching this Quick Look and reading a couple of pages of comments I think it's safe to say that anyone who judges this game based on the video needs to rethink their actions.

Also yes, Alex was pretty bad at this game and no, I don't hate him.

Alex, du you know what the 'A' and 'D' keys do? Maybe you should look into that.

Yeah, I quit, painful to watch.

I have no problem with Alex sucking at Serious Sam. But why did he show the worst part of the game, when he has played further in and it gets alot better?

The music is as awesome as your play isnt Alex :P

Or you know, Alex doesn't seem interested in the game cause it's uninspired, decade old design; and sure that might be what Serious Sam does... that doesn't make it better.

There's far more intensity in Serious Sam than anything that modern, "ultra realistic", military, hand-holdy, first-person shooters have shat out in the past five years. Serious Sam is a throwback, but it's a throwback to a time where all that matters is how fast you can pull the trigger and how long you can stay alive. It's the golden age of first-person shooters; simplicity in it's most committing form. Not everybody can appreciate it, and it doesn't seem like you're one of those who can.

Also, did anyone else get a weird Rise of Triad vibe off of that multiplayer level?

Man, I thought it was just me. Yes. Something about those silver staircases dotted around an otherwise totally featureless environment reminded me of the floating platforms in ROTT.

I can't tell if this game is channeling Duke Nukem out of irony or not.

Wow he sucks so much at this game.

@TheHBK: Stop hating you hater, keep doing awesome Quick Looks Alex. The staff can do what they want. The job of the community is to kiss their asses and suck their dicks and never criticize anything.

Please. Strafing exist since about 20 years. Use it to survive.

wow. way too high mouse speed and low field of view in this video. lowering the mouse speed would help alex out overall.

Why would you call a Desert Eagle "Mr Wesson"?

Posted by thomasonfa

Alex and Ryan are the jaded ones.

This has to be one of the most overlooked games this year. The action is intense, and the cutscenes and story don't get in the way of that and the classic Serious Sam one-liners. Probably the best FPS I've played in a long time. It's a shame the game has pretty much been ignored.

@Smok@Smokey_Earhole: snorting coke off a hookers ass is better than this game

Posted by Suits

Deathmatch is the worst mode, obvisouly its about co-op and Alex uses the weakest weapons =|

Posted by joshrholloway

Six minutes in, still no guns.


Posted by Lugixx

I lol'd when Alex called the metal Cradle of Filth, because it sounds nothing like it.

Posted by Papa_XIV

So this is the first time i heard the guys say, and that for some reason made me happy. I don't even know why :P

After Pikman 3 and now being led to this quick look, I feel I'm growing a fondness for Alex's brand of awful game play!
