Context: The LGC crew reviews Painkiller H&D, they aren’t big fans of Serious Sam
– “So the final score for Painkiller H& 3 chairs” (reminder: reviewed by not serious sam fan guys)
– “But if you’re not a Serious Sam fan, only 2 chairs”
Conclusion: “We do what the hell we want with those chairs.”
– “The loading times are so long you can make yourself a sandwich”
– “Btw, if you’ve ran the game just once, the loading times are okay after that”
– “But who cares about that, right ? We’re making our judgement on the first run *only*”October 31, 2013 at 7:24 am #70297Freejack_Member

Thank goodness the game doesn’t even work for me.October 31, 2013 at 11:04 am #70299
Unaccounted4, you’re responsible for this ^^
Had you been here for the review, you would have complained that the game doesn’t run on you calculator and would probably taken down the score to the 2 chairs Jordan and Venn wanted.October 31, 2013 at 12:09 pm #70300PizzaDudeMember
If you don’t run the game in a while, the loading times are just as bad as the first time.October 31, 2013 at 1:48 pm #70301FrojoeKeymasterstrider wrote:Context: The LGC crew reviews Painkiller H&D, they aren’t big fans of Serious Sam
Now that’s just an outright falsehood. Serious Sam: The Second Encounter is one of my favourite games. Serious Sam (at least the Sam I remember, not before moving it to permadesert) was a fun silly romp through hordes of baddies. Painkiller is alright and all, but part of what made Sam so great was the dialogue and sheer ridiculous stuff.October 31, 2013 at 2:16 pm #70302
Yeah, I should have been more specific and said Serious Sam 3 since it’s what Painkiller is competing with on Steam Linux.
I don’t really get why SS3 gets so little love on the show, no it’s not all brown and no, not every level takes place in a desert (but it’s in Egypt, so yeah quite a lot of them here). The game still has its fair share of silly stuff too.
That said, Painkiller has a lot in common with Serious Sam but there are many aspects that make a big difference. The overall pace is faster and the controls have more in common with Quake 3 than Serious Sam (mostly because of bunny hopping).October 31, 2013 at 3:36 pm #70304Venn StoneKeymasterPizzaDude wrote:If you don’t run the game in a while, the loading times are just as bad as the first time.
That said, I did not ding it a chair for loading times since it was noted in the beta.
