View Full Version : Petition to Add TF2 Promo Items to the Preorder

Its pretty simple, quite a number of members in the community have been asking to see Serious Sam 3 include some items for TF2, either because:

a) Some would like to see some SS mechanics in TF2 weapons
b) Some get a fuzzy feeling when they get to use items that show how much they like the series
c) Its just plain fun to get a buncha hats and weapons with your favorite game

So, just post if you would like it to happen, I personally wouldnt mind paying a bit extra, because, until now, the deluxe edition isnt really getting my full interest

isn't it a waste of money to buy a game just for hats for another game? it wouldn't surprise me if people actually do that.

I dont think we really needed a petition thread for this. If anything it should have been posted on the TF2 forums, heh. But I think if Croteam is interested they would talk to valve, kinda like what Uber Entertainment did with monday night combat.

Same here. Yes, I'll eventually get the game but, I would pay for it right now if it had stuff I could use in another game.

isn't it a waste of money to buy a game just for hats for another game? it wouldn't surprise me if people actually do that.

Hat Fortress 2 isn't just about the teams...no wait...argh

I just want to have stuff from a game series I like, in a game I play. Personally, I wouldn't be wasting money by pre-purchasing the game for some extra in-game stuff (for SS: BFE and TF2), that money would go towards a company that has listened to it's customers TWICE! (or more times) :D if they add TF2 stuff, they added split screen because the fans wanted it so, IMHO, that would be well deserved money for them :)

Check Seriouszone, that's what I meant by community, not this desolate forum space.

I hope they don't waste their time on crap like this. They have a game to finish. They ain't got time for this BS.

Thats definitely not how TF2 items are made. Here's how its done, the company gets permission from Valve, then the fans and graphic artists design the models for the guns, the particle effects and the kill pics, plus some extra help from Valve yet again in pasting it up.

Yet again, I'll politely redirect you to Seriouszone, the guys over there have been on it for quite some time

Here's a pic for the lazy ones:

I've only come to the forums to say almost exactly the same as OP! I was reading a few news items this morning and a few about SS3, which reminded me yet again of my thoughts as to why I am nt pre-ordering, or even buying until SS3 hits the Xmas sale, more likely.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Serious Sam games. The mindless killing is a great escape and the muscle memory and twitching reflexes make a welcome break from the usual FPS's. But I'm disappointed in the pre-order deal.

I wasn't going to buy DEHR, and in a lot of ways I wish I hadn't until they had fixed some of the more problematic bugs that are making the game unbearable for the few of us. But the offer of those pre-order items played on my mind for a short while and eventually I developed a Golem personality issue, and while clicking the buy button I uttered the words "my preciousssssss".

I was won over by the items. Sad, but true.

I am surprised that CroTeam haven't taken advantage of the excellent marketing opportunity ... I would have pre-ordered the game for items. The current in game item is so ... non-descript that it means nothing to me! Maybe 4 or more in-game unique items may have persuaded me to buy it ... maybe some items spread over a few games. A Portal 2 exclusive, and TF2 exclusive, and a couple of SS3 items ... or better still 8 items ... shiny ... 16 items ... my ... preciousssssssss!

But no. I feel I can wait. I have a load of games right now. the pre-order deal isn't a must-have. Waiting ....

09-13-2011, 12:14 PM
While I think the whole item system is dumb, it would definitely be decent publicity for Serious Sam 3 if Team Fortress 2 exclusives were included with the pre-order. There are indeed Team Fortress 2 nuts that will buy anything to complete their item collection, and even those that aren't like that may be interested if the item(s) sparks their interest.

09-19-2011, 10:18 PM
Ok, lets be seriuous here (pun not intended), why is there such an irrational HATe of hats here? I mean there've been (silly, IMHO) threats of preorder cancelling if TF2 hats (actually, weapons but yeah TF2=hats or whatever) are added as a promotion

Fine, you HATe TF2, so what? You'll never get to see a single hat in SS: BFE, do you know why?

The hats would be for another game, a game you HATe so much you don't play, or even have installed so...

People who want the hats will get them and enjoy them

You (the hat hater) won't be affected because
you don't even play TF2

So yeah, stop HATing, enjoy the game and avoid hats/TF2/whatever the kool kidz do, like the plague.

The way I see it is people playing TF2 will see the SS3 item/weapon and ask where they got it. They will then check out the SS3 store page and perhaps purchase the game. It is like free advertising inside TF2.

Unfortunately, its not legal to submit concepts from other games into the Steam Workshop.

Who's talking about hats? Serious Sam wears NO hats!

Batandy appears to be making Sam's weapons and misc items based on the series. Who doesnt want to use his minigun or his rocket launcher?

galvatron3000
10-17-2011, 03:54 PM
Also, Batandy, not sure if this is possible, but I was wondering if you could make Sam's new Desert Eagle or his Melee Gloves for the Spy? They seem really compatible with his gameplay mechanics..

I was thinking about an idea I read somewhere in the TF2 forums. Instead of the Spy's knife or its variations, a pair of gloves such as Sams that allow the Spy to both kill the enemy from any angle besides backs and maintain his disguise.

Said move would come at the cost of requiring several seconds to perform, while leaving the Spy in a choking position that is pretty much obvious to identify.

Concerning the beautiful Minigun you're creating, Im not sure about its name (we'll leave it to you ;) ) but a certain idea comes to mind. Since it seems cool having a Sam-related effect, how about this:

For every enemy kill, extra bonuses are unlocked, making the Heavy player strive for killing as much as possible while receiving a certain health penalty

3% extra of faster spin-up time, damage bonus and chance to slow the target per kill up to a limit.

Not sure if this idea catches your fancy Batandy, but if it does (or a modified version of it) please include it in your letters to Croteam/Valve.

Thanks

Its SS3 who cares about useless hats and other crap. TF2 is honestly not worth even playing now at the price of free. SS3 debasing itself to appeal to the Hat Fortress 2 crowd would be beneath itself and Sam would not approve.

... don't include TF2 items in the pre-order of SS3?! Because? Because it ruins TF2?! Which already has items therefore cannot be any worse than it is now? Or because adding TF2 items in the pre-order of SS3 ruins SS3?! Really?

Riiiiiiight. I can see you have your thinking cap on.

And side note. I don't care, it isn't a drama, unlike the TF2 hat/item haters drama. But if the items were there I'd have pre-ordered it by now. I have plenty of games to be getting on with and a WoW addiction to feed. That's how much I care. But seeing as this thread is for fun ... go ahead and have some! There's a plan, hey kid?

Serious Sam has a very small community.Adding tf2 items would make atleast 25% of the tf2 community discover the game.If they don't like it they'll not buy it, tf2 nerds will buy it just for the items, and some people will check the gameplay to buy it for the game AND the items.Croteam is a small, nearly indie team, and some extra money wouldn't hurt, so they can continue making this awesome games and improve them
