There’s no one more serious than Serious Sam (duh)! He’s so serious that not only is he coming to Xbox Live Arcade, but he is seriously coming to the PC! In all seriousness, Croteam has been hounded by serious fans and seriously had to consider publishing Serious Sam.
That leaves many of us seriously excited. This new, serious remake is in full HD, with seriously updated graphics. We’ll be getting serious and playing Serious Sam sometime later this summer. They must be serious about getting the game out soon! On a more serious note, it’s going to cost a serious 1200 Microsoft Points, which equals about $14.99. That’s seriously high price tag. Check out this serious press release after the break…
