SOCOM But Not Forgotten

Ed Smith: ''I'm sorry, SOCOM II. I tried my best, I really did.

The plan was simple: In protest of SOCOM II's servers being permanently closed at the end of August, I was to order myself an NTSC copy of the game, log on and stage a one-man sit in, refusing to leave the British server until normal service resume.

I didn't even make it to the main menu. Thanks to my gourmet of a PlayStation-refusing North American PS2 games (the PAL version can't be used online anymore) my hopes of salvaging SOCOM II were dashed, snuffed out by finickity region locks and backwards incompatibly. My favorite game of all time is about to disappear forever; all that's left to play is the offline campaign mode, and I'm sure the heartless sods will soon find a way to delete that, too.'' (PS2, Socom 2:US Navy Seals)
