Daily Reaction: Game Over, Man

Stan replied passionately, sadness creasing his face, “they’re shutting us down. Offline, man, off-fucking-line. I dedicated my life to this, and it’s just ending. This is the last battle.” - PSLS (MAG, PC, PS3, PS4, SimCity, SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs, SOCOM: Confrontation, The Crew, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I am going to miss MAG and the SOCOM games.

Where did it say that MAG was shutting down?

It would have been nice if they added that to the actual article instead of the wannabe tear-jerker stuff.

I know right, I was thinking the same thing. It was more of a read between the lines and pick up the pieces in the comment section..

I didn't even really try this game, I almost picked it up a couple days at my local gameswap though. Glad I didn't now, I'm gonna have to let those guys know that the games a bust now.

This is exactly why I don't want an all digital future. Once the servers go down that's it, game over. I like that I can still put my Super Nintendo games in the console and it'll work even after all these years...

I own(ed) it, I got a platinum and once I did, I went on once in a while, but never like I did before; I might put it in once or twice before the servers go down, or maybe I'll sell it to gamestop before they realize it.

The game was very under supported. I got my platinum then put some more time into it after. I stopped playing after one of those "Play with the Devs" days. Damn Devs always were on SVER and screwing over the other teams.

I caught one dev so desperate to show superiority he was altering things in the background for himself. Caught him multiple times with a bunker rocket only for him to stand there unphazed. After a bit I wasn't the only one on my platoon catching the BS at work. Since I rarely bother to go back. I do play with my cousin when he gets the urge to go play, otherwise I avoid it.

Have a few of my PSN friends looking to play before the servers get shut down. Probably will join in on that. I'm hoping MAG 2 happens for PS4 more than anything, hopefully without Zipper in the background this time. I have my digital copy on PSN for the time being though.

Dude, they ALWAYS play SVER because the balance is in SVER's favor, and people have been complaining about that since the beta, plus they do change the background. Once in the beta, I found a good spot to ding one of SVER's bunkers, and the next day, the put a tree or a bar where I was so I could not do it.

In that sense, I'm glad Zipper is gone.

Yes sir it will be.

So long Mag. You were a promise... sort-of fulfilled.
Dead_Cell  +   622d ago
Ask any player who put any decent amount of time in and they'll tell you it was promise fulfilled. It may not have reached the top sales or following ever but for the community and the people who cared for it, it delivered a hell of a lot.

That's what I've been hearing, I really hope they return to that game and make it a franchise, bring it back on PS4 with updated graphics, fix some of those bugs, as well as some of the mechanics, that shit would be awesome, they could have had a HUGE following for that game.

Until Zipper broke it.

It was brilliant for a while.

MAG, I loved that game once upon a time

i hope they will stop selling retail copies of mag if they close the game servers.
Dead_Cell  +   622d ago
They already have, it's removed from PSN along with all DLC and now it's just up to the retailers to stop supplying online.
0pie  +   621d ago
Thank you for the info sir. :)
TD_hastetheday  +   622d ago
MAG will be missed, my all-time favorite shooter. They're shutting servers down in January.
GezForce  +   622d ago
Another reason why online only multiplayer games such as upcoming Titanfall are a poor investment. My physical and digital copies of MAG (and dlc) are now useless/worthless.

You speak for two.

It would be nice if you could make your own servers...
Dead_Cell  +   621d ago
I got four years of one of the best shooters I'd ever played, I wouldn't say I made a poor investment.
