Courtesy of GameVideos, this is close quarters military action at its finest. check out this hi-resolution new gameplay footage from the Media Day.
I just saw the gameplay video and i must say that the game look sweet. i definitily can not wait for this game to hit the stores.
Saw old footage of this game wasnt to bothered But that looked sweet !
I was expecting hand to hand combat based from the title. This is close quarters combat, but it's all guns ablazin'. Still, this is looking better every time I see something new about it! It'll definitely be a first day buy for me!
They have really polished the game from last time I've seen it.......but ya where is the CQC?....
I think i'm gonna have the nostalgia for the old maps but the new maps look too much of the same as rainbow six and COD4.
Yea, I was interested in SOCOM but never really a huge fan... this was the first trailer that has me really looking forward to it. Looked pretty sweet.
I have been a fan since SOCOM. This looks like a hopped up SOCOM II which is what we have been wanting for a long time. It will be one of the two big online titles this fall.
This looks very COD4 reminiscent. Socom involves tactical combat and this just looks more like run n'gun. Either way I can't wait for it. They have polished it up a lot.
This game is going to make be a very happy gamer.
I actually giggle like a little school girl everytime I see something new on SOCOM:con. I just cant' wait to get my fix of this sweet sweet SOCRACK... and it's in 1080p too - the purest form of SOCRACK.
oh this makes me smile
game just gets better and better. 32 players online should be the standard by now for true next gen online games. did you hear the bullets! and the motion sensing peek and crouch function seems really cool can't wait for this one. SOCOM is coming to the PS3, anyone who calls themself a true gamer should understand what that means.
socom and warhawk are 2 great online titles..
both support 32 players online and both are sold on bluray disc and on psn. i like these online only games - make your own story! LBP FTW - LBP FTW - LBP FTW
LBP should bring a lot to the table.
I want to dance.
Ive never played socom before, it looked like a cod4 game in third person =)
imo, definately better than COD4 online. SOCOM is much more 'arcadey' meaning you don't die as quickly as in COD4. Plus, SOCOM is a 3rd person shooter, COD4 is 1st person. Also, SOCOM has this game mode called 'captive' (where anybody can revive your teammates instanteously)..... 'captive' mode is off the da hook as they say.
Sounds really nice, i think im gonna pick this game up on day one =)
I am excited about this game even more now. :)
A little screen tearing here and there, but SOCOM fans are the last people to complain about looks. We've always been into the gameplay. Even if the game was B&W most of us would be happy. I can't wait to SOCOM again!
That's cause we are just hopeless, shameless SOCRACK feinds. Good lord, this game is so good it feels sinfull at times.
I just pitched a pup-tent!
Amen... Socom FTW!!! add me Superam true elite<<<<<
all socom agme rocks i played over 5000hours of socom 2 i had no life
every vid that comes out is makes this game look better and better. im looking forward to understanding why hardcore Socom fans say that Socom games are the best online games for the shooting genre. i just hope its not like cod 4 where you have to go through all maps. will us gamers be able to just invite people to 1 map and have a password for that room ??? bubbles for all socom fans
no other way to put it
The sound seems amazing. Can't wait to hear this in 5.1!
graphically it seems improved, better lighting, motion blur, better textures this game is going to rule
LOL graphics are TERRIBLE how can sony fans be excited by this?? it looks far worse than cod4 lololol LMAO
But yes, the graphics definitely need a big improvement. Parallex mapping seems to be missing from the environments, and the poly counts are still low. But the lighting and motion blur are good improvements. *crosses fingers.
This is a vast improvement. More fine-tuning on the way I'm sure.
But it's the gameplay that's definitely been improved by a big margin. Plus i love how every bullet casing has real physics applied; adds a lot to the immersion factor, especially when you see the player laying on their stomach and firing away.
Finally it`s looking more like the Socom i know :)
I've been waiting so damn long for this game
I have never played a Socom game before. After watching this video I think I'm going to have to start with this one. True the graphics aren't very impressive... but the gameplay looks tight!
SOCOM > COD4 How could you even compare them together. SOCOM has so many more game modes and real clan interaction. NO BS. You really want to be challenged? Step into the real action shooter. SOCOM FTW.
Wow that looks relaly really fun. I cant freaking wait!
The graphics did improve. But yeah that's Socom right there. You'll get sucked into the addictive gameplay. Socom is not for respawn whores. In real ranked games you'll get your ass kicked.
Wow that really had a SOCOM 2 feel to it.. Plus they brought back blood.. Looks amazing.. Gameplay looks like the classic.. Sep cant get here soon enough
That's the thing! It actually looks like it could be that same sweet SII formula. If it is then I'm royally 'ucked cause any social life I may have by that time will immediatly cease to exsist.
things I noticed seems like you can lay down a lot quicker, but I can hear complaints about that one in a middle of a gun fight. no recoil when he was in full scope, and at full auto is rediculous it seems like there is a few mili second pause for gernades now which should help on those people who love the easy kills at the beginning of each round. the character and camera movement looks very slick, eventhough I seen a few jumps here and there the hit kill ratio looks really low. the emenies are dropping like flies, but I like it. other then that the game looks AWSOME, i cant wait.
Hopefully they'll fix the insane amount of bugs that the elite unfairly used to their advantage like shooting while hiding inside rocks. Not to mention the laughable hit detection. Socom was the only real online shooter for the ps2 so fans didn't know any better. The fact is the game was a mess.
halo even had its share with getting stuck on the cielings sniping ppl etc a crap load of bugs/glitches they had. Like Exile said below every game has its glitches stop trying to downplay the mother of online gaming.
Yeah the glitches and hit detection were a pain in the ass in the game but that didn't stop us Socom fans from playing. Also to say we don't know any better is retarded. Myself and I bet tons of Socom fans have already played a fair share amount of games on the PS3 and 360 to know that the online system and overall game is still unmatched with Socom.
"Yeah the glitches and hit detection were a pain in the ass in the game but that didn't stop us Socom fans from playing. Also to say we don't know any better is retarded." Than why would you keep playing a game that has horrible hit detection? I think that might be pretty important in a shooter.
The overall fun factor of the game overshadowed those minor inconvenience.
A hot mess ;) that many users clocked a crap load of hours into. Granted, every game has their glitches.
Once this comes out, COD4 will be dead on the PS3. I guess I better sell COD4 now. I just like tactical games unlike COD4. COD4 is just a killfest.
I notice on the left - top corner that it says this build is ALPHA....I wonder if they are just showing the Alpha Build on purpose and reveal the current build later? Well, they still have a lot of time so even if they are at Alpha, I still think they can release on September 12.
I sold Cod4 today..got 40 bucks for it..suckerrrrrr I was worried about this game, but im not worried anymore...Most of you should be though. BANG BANG BANG!! 552, ak74 FTW!! bring it on Idub Nubs!!
yes dont fool urselves it will be only complaint people can have is graphics (which look better then most current-gen games actually), but its the best modern shooter gameplay, and best tactical shooter gameplay period combined with features prolly a full gen ahead of everything else then yea u have the best online game to date this gen
is there any splittscreen in this game?
this game looks awesome! cant wait for it!
this game is really coming along, i cant wait to play it. But does anyone else feel weird seeing socom without framerate problems and lag lol.
