Serious Sam 3 punishes pirates with immortal scorpion

Earlier this week, it was discovered that pirated versions of developer Croteam's recently released shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE 'features' a special guest-star hellbent on player destruction.

Pirated versions of the game include an immortal pinkish scorpion, dashing toward Sam intent on halting his progress. A Croteam representative confirmed to Shacknews that the enemy was included as a form of hilarious DRM to combat piracy. Sure, it will probably be cracked shortly, but it's a nice reminder that you shouldn't be illegally downloading games if you want to enjoy them immediately.
