Devolver Digital and Croteam are celebrating the XBLA release of Serious Sam 3: BFE
with an amusing and just slightly mean-spirited promotion. They're taking the disappointment over Medal of Honor: Warfighter as indication that gamers are tired of shooters where cowering behind cover and peeking out to loose a few bullets is the primary focus.
Appropriately, they're launching the "Warfighter-fighter" program. Over the next week they'll be giving away 100 free downloads of Serious Sam 3 on XBLA. All you have to do to enter is tweet your concerns about stagnant military shooters to #SeriousSam3XBLA, or post something similar on their Facebook page
I've been reviewing the XBLA version of Sam 3 for a couple weeks now, and I have to admit it's the perfect antidote to the typical shooter glut that starts in the fall. Stay tuned for my review, and check out this new trailer in the meantime.
During this busy season of video game releases the team at Devolver Digital realize that not every game will live up to expectations. One such game has been Medal of Honor: Warfighter - yet another military shooter where cover is king and most folks spend their time peeking out form behind a wall or a strategically placed concrete barrier.
That shit is weak.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce the Serious Sam3: BFE “Warfighter-fighter” program. Over the next week we will be offering 100 free Xbox LIVE Arcade downloads for Serious Sam 3: BFE to some of those affected so they can get up from behind that wall and get back to the unleashing heavy ordinance upon a horde of brutal aliens just like our forefathers.
Stand up and make your voice heard by simply tweeting your concerns about the stagnant modern military shooter with the hashtag #SeriousSam3XBLA and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Serious Sam 3 download - the perfect remedy for mundane, cover-based shooters.
For those that avoid Twitter at all costs you can also post the same to the Serious Sam Facebook page at facebook.com/SeriousSamFan.
Spread the word and stay serious!
