All Questions, Answered by Rich Knuckles, Serious Sam 3: BFE Help Line Ep. 1
Apparently, some gamers out there have forgotten the retro shooter’s creed: F**k cover. Shoot until things stop moving. Thankfully we have game franchises like Serious Sam which help remind gamers to stop being p**sies and get out there and fight.

This is the first out of a three-part series featuring the obnoxious bespectacled help line operator. Developer Croteam hopes that his his encouraging words of wisdom will help get gamers prepared when Serious Sam 3: BFE busts through their door in October and busts their teeth out with the business end of Sam’s boot.
“I hope we are outsourcing these help line operators to save some cash,” asked Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “Use one of those Eastern European countries where the girls have perfect asses and sexy accents. You know, like Brazil.”
Rich Knuckles has expressed enthusiasm on telling people to “man up” if they ever hope to survive playing Serious Sam 3: BFE.
“I’m already fielding all sorts of calls from shooter fans wondering where all the conveniently placed barricades and random concrete walls are in Serious Sam 3: BFE,” said Rich Knuckles, Assistant Supervisor at the Serious Sam 3: BFE Help Line. “Most of these guys have gotten soft from years of crouching behind cover, picking off one or two approaching enemies as they make their way through missions. It’s pathetic.”
