Socom Blog: "Hi, Suckers-

The QA team is somewhat working our way through Patch 1000.57. It's a big update with a few features that should of shipped with the game. We will announce details on its release in a Fall 2009 update.

In the meantime, I found out some details about the Tournament Matches (which are also in your instruction manual; pg 7),so I wanted to share some of that with you today:

** "Haze", "Lair", "Too Human", even Hannah Montana have nothing on the crappiness of this game. Who in thier right mind releases a game without the features that are on the back of the game box and mentioned in the instructional manual?

6 Months later and the game is still not complete. Socom Confrontation the biggest "flop" ever.

But i was disappointed about the crazy amount of missing features.

But the gameplay is fun as hell. Just coz it didn't come with all the features, doesn't define the game's worth.

FYI, if the game is not ur cup of tea, den move on. Not everyone likes every game. Alot of folks on my friends list are still addicted to this game despite owning K2, R2, COD4, COD5.

Who in their right mind releases a game without the features that are on the back of the game box and mentioned in the instructional manual?

Game came out last October. 6 Months ago those features were released on the back of the product.

You also realize that the majority of Slant 6 development is now for a PSP game. Who knows when we will get DLC at this rate, let alone the ability to run while having night vision enabled? Lag free servers? Black Fog fixed? Famas Fixed? Quick Select corrected? Sound issues patched?

I agree, but no offense you are your buds paid for a shotty product.You might want to try out either Rainbow Six las Vegas 2 or GRAW 2 as healthy alternatives. Don't be a slave to a broken product.

I also paid for it, but in essence I got a 10$ game to go with my 50$ blue-tooth headset. People whom paid for just the game alone should consult a lawyer immediately. Perhaps then Sony will pass the franchise to another developer.

WildArmed3151d ago (Edited 3151d ago )

TBH my friends were more interested in that blutooth headset and picked up the game with it, yet they ended up getting addicted.

I totally agree the lack of responsibility on Slant Six's part to keep their promise of delivering a completed game.
If Zipper wasn't working on MAG, I woulda pushed Zipper again 2 get this game developed.

But they are doing the best they can, (IF there will be another) the next SOCOM from Slant six hopefully wont be as bad. Considering they are relatively new to PSN, they'll have everyhting up and running by then *crosses fingers*

And No, being New to a console/PSN is not a excuse for them being lazy.

Oh i own both RSVs and GRAW, but SOCOM takes the prize (IMO) gameplay wise.
but RSV n GRAW (being sooo much older than SOCOM) stand thier ground pretty well.

I am a die hard socom fan, but in no way will I support any other game from these crappy developers. I don't know why Socom series got the short end of the stick and Killzone got the holy grail.

Heres to hoping Guerrilla makes the next Socom.

WildArmed3150d ago

I hope not.
Even though i think K2 is a great game, it wasn't such a great online experience for me. Plus, I think GG should stay with FPS games.. TPS might cause some more issues.

Either way, SOCOM is in trouble.

I thought this has been posted already. Do that few people visit the SOCOM blog?

Omegasyde3151d ago

They visit just to tell Slant 6 at how horrible a job they are doing.

Check out the Comments for each article, then factor that by 2 because the mods clean out half of them. Slant 6 has a lot of guys releasing another game when their last game still doesn't have features that are on the back of the box. Commercial suicide since the only sales the game will get are from naive people whom aren't fans.

"Who in their right mind releases a game without the features that are on the back of the game box and mentioned in the instructional manual?"

Well I dont know for the launch of the game in the US but I have bought Socom just two weeks ago and I am looking at the back of the box:

1.Create your own soldier, customize their kit and weapons, then wage war in stunning online battleground-check

2.Unrivalled squad managment and community support features in collaboration with SOCOM.com-well if i know what they meant with that

What else? I am looking through the manual, all the modes are there, all the features are there, the only bugs I have encountered are the lost of sound. The party system works great, chat is the best one yet of of all online games I have played(Warhawk,MGO,COD,K2,R1&a mp;2). It looks to me that you hate this game little too much. In its present state its better than all the games I have mentioned.

Omegasyde3151d ago

Do we have the same game? Unless you got the new euro version.

In the top right corner it states:
*leaderboards ( didn't work for months)
*lobbies/matchmaking (lobbies yes, match making got patched in)
*Invite in game (still doesn't work, can't follow players)
*Playstation Home (You can't game launch from Home)
*Trophies (patched in months later)

Wait lets go over the instructional manual and what features are missing from the game still:
***************************** ******************
Calender: page 7,19 still not in game.

Community:Pg 7,19 feature is somewhat coming in next patch

blood as camo: Can't add to face as mentioned on pg 13.

Quick Match: Got patched in 4 months later, pg 14

Tournament/clann ladder: Page 18,21 coming soon months later.

Community portal: In game web browser, never implemented pg 19.

Awards: Page 20, didn't get into the games until 4 months later.
***************************** *******

Thats 8 missing features that were written in the instruction manual that was shipped with the game October 2008.

Dynablaster3151d ago

lol i said i just got the game and i am from europe, so i guess they have removed the features you said, web browser and clan ladders are the only thing i am missing now
