Serious Sam 3: BFE Patches; Trailer

Steam offers a small update for Serious Sam 3: BFE as well a larger subsequent automatic patch for Croteam's just-released first-person shooter sequel. On a related note, this trailer shows off some mayhem from the game from the unique perspective of Croteam CFO Fork Parker, who writes: "Sup nerds, I edited my own video for Serious Sam 3 to show those bums in marketing how it's done." The notes for the two patches follow:

  • Fixed data missing from some formatted texts in German language
  • Fixed Moddable (unrestricted) version of the game not launching if autoexec.cfg is present.
  • Fixed player sometimes getting into state with no weapons when respawning in Versus, or crossing levels.

And:

  • Fixed older saves not being loadable after the first update. This version should be able to load saves from any of previous two versions.
  • Fixed some rare cases where player disconnecting at a very particular moment would make some parts of gameplay scripts to break (usually not spawning some enemies or similar).
  • When several players are standing in front of ammo crate and one of them opens the crate, ammo will be awarded to all of them, not only to the one who opened it.
  • Fixed cases when player disconnecting while standing on an item could crash the server.
  • Fixed scripted flashlights (e.g. Spooky Secrets) not working on client.
  • Player carrying a flag in CTF cannot sprint now.
  • Fixed a crash that could happen at random when Technopolip was killed.
  • Fixed a problem where sometimes all Gnaar melees in the game were long melees, instead of quick ones.
  • Fixed "Old School" achievement flagged as failing if pressing the reload binding even if the reload didn't actually happen. It will now fail only if the reload was actually performed.
  • Prevented crash that happened if Cheat menu was accessed during level loading.
  • Fixed quick weapon swap sometimes remembering the wrong weapon.

Played 45 min, after a fov adj, love this game so far. They got this one right, Sam is back!! Very nice tight, crisp mouse control in this game.

Like I said, with the exception of one person, everyone else seems to love the game.

Is the game divided into episodes? And maybe he only played through one?

4-5 hrs is about right for co-op. It would probably take twice that long (8-10 hrs) solo.

Just finished the singleplayer campaign last night. Last level is a little too drawn out, and the final boss fight is a bit problematic, but overall it's the best Sam since First Encounter.

There are still design decisions I don't agree with (ADS, for the couple weapons that use it, seems to work against the flow of the game), but the majority of the game felt like it's been in a 10-year time capsule, and I mean that in a very, very good way.

I can only hope that this and Hard Reset start a renaissance of run-and-gun shooters.

Yours are the only bad comments I've heard about it so far, Ludomancer. Especially about it being short. Are you sure you saw everything?

No need to have trouble. His entire post is gibberish.

Edit: and it's only 29.99 at Get Games RIGHT NOW

Awe, cute, a shill.

I'll break it down for you:
+The engine renders beautifully...
-But the actual art is really bad.
+Melee attacks are awesome. You can basically kill every normal-size enemy in one hit. Most of us played through the first half of the game without weapons.
-Level design throughout is extremely messy. Very unfocused and headache-inducing.
-It felt like the game returned to it's oldschool roots only during the last couple levels.
+The sandwhale is cool.
-The game is very short. We finished it on Serious difficulty in about 4 hours, playing from 3pm to 7pm or so.
+A couple hilarious quotable moments. Sam out-Dukes Nukem at his own game, by far.

"I want the game but don't want to take the risk of not having it run. I play on a laptop so it's a real gamble when it comes to performance. I wind up downloading and if the game won't run I delete it and if it does I buy it. It's not a matter of will I like the game or not it's a matter of will it run or not."

So....if it does run, you are immediately going to buy a full retail version? My guess is...no. Or...you'll wait until it's $2 3 years from now.

If you are playing games on old laptops and your excuse for pirating is it might not run (as pretty much any recent release is going to play for jack on a laptop), maybe gaming isn't for you.

5 buddies and I just played through the entire game. It's definitely the worst of the series. I love Croteam, but I recommend against this one. I am really disappointed in them for releasing this. Probably 4 hours max, on the highest difficulty. Not good.

I'm having trouble believing you, especially from the videos I've seen, the great reviews I've read and especially the cluster#!&@ that was Serious Sam 2.

No need to have trouble. His entire post is gibberish.

The game is what Serious Sam 2 should have been. It took me 15 hours in single player on Normal Difficulty to complete (just killing things, not exploring or looking for secrets), and it's about the same pace with friends on multiplayer. Survival Mode is awesome, but the mode could use more levels which I hope will come with free DLC.

It is an excellent game once you get past the first couple levels, and possibly the best in the series. It has its flaws (like the Space Monkeys, very tedious), but absolutely nothing major.

Edit: and it's only 29.99 at Get Games RIGHT NOW

I really want this game but $40 is a lot when all these sales are happening. No demo is a big mistake as I want to know if my computer can run it. Guess I have to get it through other means.

Why won't you wait for a review, demo, or price drop?

Word of the forums is that this game is excellent. Too bad no one cares cause they are too busy playing tons of other huge releases.
