A quick look at recent Road to Gehenna reviews

Reviews for the Road to Gehenna DLC for The Talos Principle are coming out. It seems reviewers are very fond of it, judging by the reviews covered below.

PC Gamer gave Road to Gehenna a 8.5 out of ten. Chris Thursten, the reviewer, enjoyed the puzzles and the new terminal system, but seemed to be disappointed by the lack of new puzzle elements, stating that “A few more surprises within the puzzles themselves would have made this expansion essential.”. Despite this, he still says that “it still comes highly recommended.”

Gamecloud scored Road to Gehenna a nine out of ten. The reviewer, William Kirk, states that, in the DLC, “everything is wholly refined” and that “It’s a game that focuses on mastery over new tricks; although, the star of the show is really Gehenna itself”. He seemed to enjoy how Gehenna feels more alive than the base game does thanks to the new terminal system.

Pixeldynamo's Melissa Vach has given Road to Gehenna a score of 8.8 out of 10. They spend a good amount of time discussing the difficulty of the puzzles in the DLC, stating that “...you’re going to need both creative thinking and accuracy for the puzzles in Road to Gehenna “.

Rock Paper Shotgun did not give the DLC a score, but seemed quite impressed with the writing and how difficult the puzzles are. The reviewer, John Walker , revealed that he actually write down possible solutions on paper, showing how much planning he put into solving the puzzles. He also seemed quite impressed with the writing in the terminals, noting that he “especially love(d) the genuinely cruel mockery of self-congratulatory communities’ praising each other’s mediocrity”.

Source files for many of the models in Serious Sam games released!

Here's some great news for fans that want to tinker with the art seen in the Serious Sam series; Croteam, via Seriously! member Solais, has released the source art files for many models seen in Serious Sam 2, Serious Sam HD, and Serious Sam 3: BFE! The models include enemies, weapons, vehicles, and Serious Sam 2's NPCs, along with many other miscellaneous models. The source releases include the textures, models, skeletons, and animations for many models in both .lwo (Lightwave 3D) and the “ascii” format used in the Serious Sam games. The sources can be exported into various Serious Sam games and modeling programs for editing. However, there are some issues; the animations in Serious Engine's format sometimes lack key animations. The Lightwave 3D sources have more animations, but it's currently difficult to convert them to a format that a Serious Sam game will read.

The model sources can be grabbed here.
