Announced yesterday, a couple of former Zipper developers are lacing up their boots again in preparation to begin working on new tactical shooter, Takedown.
Thoughts of new development team?
They're former Zipper employees. Expectations at minimal, Captain!
I was looking forward to that game but now that zipper is touching it? I dont know they been making crap for almost 10 years now Socom 1 and 2 are the only thing good they have done
i really disagree, Unit13 is still my most enjoyed Vita game yet. it was quite good, and I for one am glad to hear this news.
My thoughts exactly. Unit 13 is awesome, and IMO MAG is underrated.
I bought Unit13 on release but only started playing it yesterday. I cannot believe how underrated and under appreciated this game is. This game is not only better than the likes of COD in terms of military shooter, but the stealth gameplay is beautiful! It's like MGS but with a more military feel.
I dont have a Vita yet so I havnt tried it maybe I spoke too soon I was just really burnt by Socom 4 but Ill try Unit 13 when I have the cash.
i've learned this site is nothing but kiss asses and fanboys so I usually don't even comment anymore. I read the news and leave. Although your comment will be "disagreed" into oblivion it is 100% fact. Its also the reason ZIPPER GOT CLOSED DOWN. I'm sure the lower level workers aren't really to blame, but there is no denying their games and how bad they were and what they did to SOCOM. What a joke. Glad Zipper is gone.
opinion can never be 100% fact.
@ dead eye. its not opinion it is fact. go search "sony closes Zipper interactive" it didnt happen because they were making great games.
"Big Huge Games" got shut down as well (I hope they get picked up by a worthy publisher), yet KoA was greatly received. I personally think MAG is definitely underrated too.
There's a reason you have so many disagrees XD
"TAKEDOWN will be developed on PC as the lead platform, and then brought to consoles afterwards"
I'm happy that Zipper developers found new jobs...
PC is lead platform then consoles coming after. so the tags are messed up. I can't wait to see what David Jaffe does on pc unless it's a facebook game.
He's doing a f2p mmo
@SuperBeast811 - MAG was actually an excellent game, sure it had its flaws, but definately my favourite FPS on the PS3.
Things that let it down were the lack of teamwork in some games, people not having mics for communicating and other than the DLC, the game lacked some real support from Zipper (extra maps for the Domination games etc)
Zipper are only at fault for one of those 3
I thought MAG was absolutely awesome; I got the most out of that game than any other this gen. I remember running down a street in Domination, with like 20 bullet tracers whizzing around me from random directions at any one time. I thought this probably close to a real battle as one could get. Multi-player in other FPS feel like a simulation of a practice combat now.
Yeah, the game lacked some good community support. Zipper should have listened more to people on the forums to shape how the game was handled and what made up the DLC.
I'd loved to have seen all the highest ranked players in the game being banned from SVER, to force some people into the other clans for competition.
I still need to go back to get my platinum trophy (hopefully)
bring socom 2 and 3 hd
Glad to see the folks from zipper found a new home. I love unit 13 that was a really good game!
