Serious Sam

I've been looking for this game for a while. Nobody I know seems to have it. Quite a few games sites and magazine reviewers drooled over the game, because it was a return to all that made Doom and Quake (1/2) so much fun. Minimal plot, lots of mindless killing of enemies. And co-op multiplayer. Oh how I miss co-op multiplayer.

The hideous eStore.com.au had it, for the unbelievably exorbitant price of $77.85 AUD. C'mon, the game is nearly a year old! The sequel has been released!

The equally hideous dstore.com.au didn't have it at all. It did have a game called "S Club 7 hit the road". Seriously. And yes, there are actually two amazon.com wannabe sites in Australia, one called dstore, the other called estore. (Ordering directly from amazon.com means I have to pay o'seas shipping)

I was searching for an Australian online store that dealt only in games.

Anyone remember The Gamesmen?

They are still around, they have their own website. Awesome.

It took me a while to summon the name from the dregs of my memory. They don't have the first Serious Sam, only the newly-released sequel - at $69.95. Eat me, estore. With any luck they'll be able to back order it for me and give me a fairly decent price on it.

Of course, you could always buy an Xbox, too. I've heard they're really good!

Co-OP

Xbox looks like it will be good for this kinda application. Give maybe a fresh idea to the ever singlizing computer genre's. Should I purchase one or not. that is the question put forward.

Re: Co-OP
The problem, as I see it, is being able to play someone FPS style, and retain the same level of control that we do on the PC with keyb + mouse.

Its difficult to implement mouse look on a system where most people who play it will be sitting in a lounge room - how are you supposed use a mouse like that?

Then there's the problem of multiple tv sets - although I imagine with the Xbox it could be a lot easier (and cheaper) than lugging around PC's and/or laptops.

The console controls are actully very use able much like a track ball you just have ot get use to it like anything
