Serious Steam Sale: Serious Sam Series

I have fond memories of playing the first Serious Sam game.  Humor elements like that of Duke Nukem, plus huge hordes of enemies in a gorgeously rendered setting made for a great time.  Recently, the Serious Sam games were given the HD makeover, and this weekend, each game is on sale for a whopping 75% off!  That's a really... er... serious savings!  Definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of fun.

Serious Sam HD Is Seriously on Sale for $6.67 Via Steam

I considered writing this whole news post in alliteration, but for your sake, dear reader, I restrained myself.  Another huge weekend sale is here on Steam, this time featuring recently released remake Serious Sam HD.  A scandalously sizable 66% savings means you can pick up the game for a slim $6.67.  I was planning to purchase the as yet unreleased Xbox Live Arcade version, but with 16 player co-op and the big sale, I'll be glad to settle for the PC version.  Will cannons and enormous alien bulls be in your future this weekend?

Serious Sam HD: Carol of the Shells

Sam Stone likes the holidays as much as anyone, but there's one thing he likes more - guns.  The folks over at Devolver Digital have created a nice holiday treat for Serious Sam HD fans in the form of Carol of the Shells, a short video featuring the famous holiday song Carol of the Bells.  Sixteen Sams adorned in Santa Claus attire take on hordes of bad guys all while spreading plenty of Christmas death...er...cheer.

Serious Sam HD, Left 4 Dead 2 On Sale on Steam

As Nick highlighted in a news post the other day, Steam is currently running their annual holiday sale from now until January 3rd and this means a lot of great co-op title can be snatched up (or gifted, in the true holiday fashion) at a great price.  Well for the next 24 hours only, you can pick up Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter at the low, low price of just $9.99, and Left 4 Dead 2 for just $33.49.  Picking up both titles rings in at $43.48, the price you'd likely pay, with sales tax, for Left 4 Dead 2 just by itself.  That's a lot of co-op possibilities for that price, and Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter by itself could make for an excellent last minute e-stocking stuffer!
