Serious Sam 3: BFE - Blood by the pound

Filed under
Gaming

I knew this game would probably be much like its predecessor, and under normal circumstances, I would not have bought it. But this being one of the few titles made for Linux from the very first days, I decided to cash in USD39.90 and help both the game developers and Steam in their Linux endeavor.

Serious Sam 3 cannot be compared to the likes of Call of Duty or aforementioned ArmA II, because its purpose is not to be a realistic war simulation. Instead, the game is oriented toward fun, with lots and lots of gore in it. Your task, so to speak, is to slaughter as many aliens as possible. Maps are usually large and open, allowing you to go wild with your weapons, as well as allowing huge hordes of enemies to charge your way. Of course, there's a plot and all that, but they are secondary to your mass-murder fun.

Oracle changes heart on Java EE

  • Oracle opens up Java EE
    Oracle continues to make progress Java EE 8, the enterprise edition for the Java platform, and moving forward it would like to advance Java EE within a more open and collaborative community. Specifications are nearly complete and the Java team expects to deliver the Java EE 8 reference implementation this summer. As the delivery of Java EE 8 approaches, Oracle believes they have the ability to rethink how Java EE is developed in order to “make it more agile and responsive to changing industry and technology demands.”
  • Oracle considers moving Java EE to an open source foundation
    With the finalization of the Java EE 8 platform on the horizon, Oracle on Thursday said it's considering moving Java Enterprise Edition technologies to an open source foundation. The move, Oracle said in a blog post, "may be the right next step, in order to adopt more agile processes, implement more flexible licensing, and change the governance process."
  • Oracle doesn't want Java EE any more
    Oracle wants to end its leadership in the development of enterprise Java and is looking for an open source foundation to take on the role. The company said today that the upcoming Java EE (Enterprise Edition) 8 presents an opportunity to rethink how the platform is developed. Although development is done via open source with community participation, the current Oracle-led process is not seen agile, flexible, or open enough. ”We believe that moving Java EE technologies to an open source foundation may be the right next step, to adopt more agile processes, implement more flexible licensing and change the governance process,” Oracle said in a statement.
