Doom sound effects?
Brad, was that "oh crap!" or "oh crab"?
 
Also, the correct line for ANY Serious Sam QL or review is AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
 
Edit: Man, so rare to see actual old school PC FPS movement in a shooter these days :-D
Anyway, did this potentially set a record for unintended deaths per minute?

they did HD remakes the last 2 yrs, plus some 2d platformer coming soon & gathered interest for SS3 that everyone's been waiting for, so it's not out of nowhere

I'm somewhat offended there are sights in this game. Reflex, iron, whatever, get that shit outta here! Seriously. Sprinting? Sights? I bet you can't bunnyhop. Sam, what have you become? (Answer: A COD mod)

I watched 2 mins of this and  I don't like it. That is not SS. :( That first gun looks straight out of COD and it appears to play differently then SS did.

So I'm ok with the enemies and everything, they look appropriate, but what the heck is up with the Modern Warfare-style guns? Where's my dual revolvers, where's my giant laser minicannon with tie fighter sounds?

You do know that anything under the name Ygg is personal opinion right? I don't need ironsights in a Serious Sam game. 
 
It looks like a Modern Warfare mod.

I know Serious Sam's reputation... but sights (aiming) seems counter-productive to the Serious Sam experience. Usually you don't have time to aim because they're throwing a hundred charging bull monsters at you at the same time.

I'm guessing everyone complaining about one gun having ironsights forgot that there was a sniper rifle in Second Encounter that, shockingly, you could look down the scope of.  The assault rifle is just filling in for that, the rest of the games looks as ridiculous as they always have been, so chill dudes.

Been said before but I'll say it again: Looks like Serious Sam being played on a MW map.

Okay less on the second map

It really doesn't seem like it was a good idea to have a quick look of such an unrefined preview build.
