The Talos Principle now has a Serious Sam voice pack - get it free for a week!

The Talos Principle is one of last year's best puzzlers, an unlikely fusion of spatial awareness, logic and lateral thinking from the developers of... Serious Sam?!

Yes, Croteam have demonstrated that they don't just make great shooters, but have now decided to mix the two with a Serious Sam voice pack. The DLC will be free for a week before reverting to £1.99, so get on it now?

Don't own The Talos Principle? Now's the time, because it's only £14.99 on Steam until April 6th.

Pre-Order The Talos Principle for £17.23 on The Humble Store, save £9.70

The Talos Principle is what happens when the creators of Serious Sam and The Swapper get together: a first-person puzzler with imaginative laser mechanics and a medieval setting. Better yet, though, you can secure a cheap PC deal on The Humble Store, which will save you nearly a £10 versus the Steam RRP and £3 versus Greenman Gaming's latest voucher code!

In stark contrast to Serious Sam, The Talos Principle boasts a deeper narrative, explorable non-linear world and thought-provoking puzzles, powered by the impressive visuals of Serious Engine 3. Previews are positive, and though we'd always recommend caution when pre-ordering, this is currently the cheapest The Talos Principle deal on the market thanks to the fact that The Humble Store actually understands and respects exchange rates.

The deal ends tomorrow, but if you have time, try to check out the public test/demo on Steam!

The Serious Sam Collection Retail Bundle Headed To Xbox 360

Mastertronic and Croteam have revealed a retail Serious Sam collection that includes the First Encounter HD, Second Encounter HD, Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam: Double D XXL. Note that it will likely just entail the previously-released XBLA versions shoved onto a disc, meaning that save files and achievements will carry over.

We've got reviews for all of these games on-site already (click the links), but may well give our verdict on the collection ahead of its July 12th release date.

Serious Sam 4 "Coming 2014"

Fuelled By Humble Weekly Sale Proceeds

Serious Sam 4 is happening, Croteam have announced, and will be paid for by the latest Humble Weekly Sale that includes the entire franchise (awesome indie games and all). The lone piece of concept art shows a beardy Sam Stone standing in the middle of ruined Paris, surrounded by Mental's space fleet, suggesting a bit of a world tour this time around. Also, I'm not sure why I described a picture that's an inch above this text.

Anyone who's played Serious Sam will know that it's an epic, no-holds-barred orgy of relentless old-school ultraviolence, so we're absolutely chuffed by this news. If you're new to the series, why not check out a (hilarious) history of the franchise after the break?

However, you can also beat the average for Serious Sam 2 (lame) and Serious Sam 3 (unbelievably epic!). Huge savings to be had here, and an enormous amount of well-tooled, old-school awesomeness.

Serious Sam 3: BFE | 600 MSP | Xbox LIVE | Xbox 360

Oh man Serious Sam 3 is awesome. Truly fantastic, particularly if you're looking for a bit of no-holds-barred old-school FPS action, with massive guns, lots of humour, hordes of enemies, and tongues planted firmly in cheeks. Its OTT brilliance still thrills us, and now Gold subscribers can get it at half price.

Not that there's a lack of stellar FPS titles available this Christmas, mind...

Serious Sam 3: BFE | Xbox 360

Serious Sam 3: BFE XBLA Review | OTT XBLA FPS FTW

Platform: XBLA (1200 MSP)

Developer: Croteam

Publisher: Devolver Digital

Serious Sam 3 kicked an inordinate, even unnecessary, amount of arse when it released last year on PC. It was big, brutal and bonkers: delivering a refreshingly old-school experience that threw literally hundreds of simultaneous enemies into our crosshairs. We bunny hopped, strafed and backpedalled furiously. MENTAL's hordes died by the thousands. Big review scores and Shooter Of The Year nominations followed.

One year on, and Croteam's salute to old-school thrills has arrived on XBLA for 1200 Microsoft Points. It stands to reason that buying Serious Sam 3's full campaign and cooperative modes for roughly £10 might just be worth doing, and guess what? It obviously is.

However, sacrifices had to be made to get Serious Sam 3 running on the Xbox 360. Not only have the visuals taken a fairly substantial hit, but the game has been split into two halves due to XBLA's file size limitations. The first standalone half contains the full campaign with cooperative support, while an optional DLC pack bundles competitive multiplayer together with the recently-released Jewel Of The Nile expansion. Since both portions cost 1200 MSP separately, you don't need to be a mathematician to know that one is seriously better value than the other.

Serious Sam 3: BFE Hits XBLA Next Week

1200 Microsoft Points For The Campaign & Co-Op

It's time to Get Serious, Xbox 360 owners. Croteam and Mastertronic have confirmed that utterly mental shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE will release next week on XBLA, costing a mere 1200 Microsoft Points (roughly £10.20) for the full campaign, online co-op and, brilliantly, splitscreen cooperative play. The Jewel Of The Nile DLC pack will be available at launch, which also includes the competitive multiplayer suite.

Considering that we hailed Serious Sam 3 as the Best Shooter Of 2011 following its 9/10 review, you should be very excited about this. Seriously excited, even.

Serious Sam 3: BFE | £7.50 With Voucher Code | Get Games | PC

Serious Sam 3: BFE is a breath of fresh air in the shooter genre, and one that opens up into an enormous, sprawling murder funhouse in the latter half of the game. Enormous weapons, insane action, some of the biggest levels in the entire series, 16-player cooperative mayhem... what more could you want? Frankly, I personally feel that it's the best shooter of 2011, but this is up for debate. You guessed it: this is another voucher code offer, and you'll receive a Steam Code.
