Devolver Digital, the publishers behind the Serious Sam series have announced to gift a free copy of Serious Sam 3: BFE to anyone who portrays his hate for the new Medal of Honor: Warfighter on twitter.
Now that really is taking it to the next level. The Studio cleared its take on EA’s new shooter, calling it “yet another military shooter where cover is king” and “That s**t is weak.”
Devolver blogged last night about Medal of Honor: Warfighter which, actually debuted at first place on the UK Charts.
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 s**t 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!
My personal opinion would side with Developer to some extent. Warfighter really is a tired old shooter with new improved graphics. However, calling it out in such a way is unacceptable.
