Serious Sam 3: BFE

Devolver Digitial's bombastic third entry in the Serious Sam franchise, Serious Sam 3:BFE, is now available for the Mac. This prequel takes place before the first game, and is intentionally devoid of a cover system; instead focusing on speed and over the top action. Fittingly, a new, and distinctly Mac inspired trailer has been released. Watch it below!

Serious Sam 3: BFE is available for download via Steam, and until April 30th, is 66% off ($13.90).

The Binding of Isaac Review

Hide from your mother in this trek through a basement of nightmares.

The Binding of Isaac

Taking a break from Team Meat projects following the success of Super Meat Boy, Edmund McMillen has teamed up with Florian Himsl to bring us the somewhat odd game The Binding Of Isaac. Isaac tells the tale of a boy, Isaac, whom of which was forced to escape into his basement to hide. What is Isaac hiding from, one may choose to ask? Why what any normal individual chooses to hide from, his crazed mother, who was instructed by the voice of god to kill her son. If this happens to sound a bit familiar that's because it very well may be for those that are particularly religious. The Binding of Isaac is more or less a retelling of a biblical tale but without really focusing too heavily on the religious aspects for anything more than pure inspiration.

The Binding of Isaac

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly-generated RPG Shooter. Controls of the game are nothing more than the WASD keys for movement and the arrow keys to shoot with 2 more buttons tossed in for use of items while the mouse is a possible alternative for shooting. The RPG elements mentioned come in the form of different items the player can come across. This includes, but is not limited to, a crown of thorns that increases damage, a hearty breakfast that increases max HP, or a remote that will teleport Issac to the current levels shop instantly. The number of items within the game and finding them all within one go is anything but possible.



Serious Sam: Double D Review

Serious Sam Double D

Get serious in this over the top 2D shooter.

Mommy's Best Games, long known for their Xbox Live Indie Games, brings their unique talents to the Serious Sam series in Serious Sam: Double D. Unlike the other Serious Sam games, which have all up to this point been FPS titles, MBG has elected to give our donut loving, chainsaw wielding hero a 2D makeover. The result of this makeover, as it turns out, is nothing short of fantastic. Despite now being a 2D shoot-'em-up, surprisingly little has been lost in the new format. Many of the core gameplay elements from its FPS cousins; ranging from Gnaars, to the perpetually unseen antagonist Mental, to exotic locales are retained. The object here remains as simple as it has always been: kill any and everything that moves, before getting killed in the process. Expect massive amounts of action, a healthy assortment of weapons, and often screen filling bosses over the course of the game's 18 stages.

Serious Sam: Double D

Fans of Metal Slug will no doubt find themselves in familiar territory here, as there no small number of similarities between it, and Serious Sam: Double D. First and foremost, like its presumed inspiration, the action never lets up. From the onset, the player is tasked with facing a barrage of enemies, often by the dozens. Luckily, as with any Serious Sam title, firepower is in ample supply. Speaking of firepower, SSDD takes a different approach to gunplay. Instead of adhering to modern convention and allowing weapons to be modified, a unique "stacking" system is in place. Connectors can be acquired, allowing guns to be stacked together in a seemingly limitless number of combinations. Want to use a laser rifle, rockets, and a grenade launcher at the same time? Have at it! Up to four of any given weapon type can be added to a stack, and each stack can contain (with enough connectors) up to six weapons in total.
