A job listing hints that Slant Six are starting work on the speculated Star Wars: Battlefront Online, again.
A new Battlefront game for the ps360 would be great.
I've missed Battlefront so much! Would love this to materialise :)
I've actually never played Battlefront before. Is it good? I might have to try it out.
YES IT IS! Think of it as a 3rd person Battlefield or Warhawk set in the Star Wars universe. When a player is doing amazing in the game, they will get the chance to become a Jedi or Sith depending on what team you are on. When you become one, you can rape the puny armies. With force push, lightsaber throws, force lightning, force choke, and force run and jump! You can have Jedi vs Sith battles, space battles, vehicle battles, or normal army battles.
battle front 2 was amazing, just like the movie attack of the clones with the huge battle scale. loved it. great with split screen, online, or just singleplayer. that game had it all.
I hope this is true, Damn, the last real battlefront came out over 4 and a half years ago.. all we've been getting is crappy handheld ones, I don't even have a PSP so I couldn't even play them
Battlefront keeps popping up at the mo. Played the original ages ago, and really liked it. Would love to see a new one happen.
No! They ruined Socom.Stay the hell away from battlefront.
Believing you Colbert.....you and your satirical sarcasm.
I don't see any sarcasm in his comment. Battlefront was amazing last gen. Too many franchises have been ruined this gen.
What Colbert said is 100% fact.....ask any SOCOM fan and they will confirm it....go to SOCOM.com and make a thread "Does Slant Six suck?" and you will see just how bad their developing actually is Confrontation is still in beta stage...and thats no lie, we PAID to be beta testers as they fixed the game for over a year and never completing it before turning their back on it pray this horrible developer gets canned from your game or project.....get a real developer or atleast hope for one
Well, as much as it's likely cancelled completely, a part of me wishes, the Battlefront games are superb.
Oh god no, Slant Six ruined SOCOM, now there going (maybe) to ruin Battlefront to? Any publisher with a brain in there head would not let Slant Six go anywhere near a console game, and just let them stick to there PSP crap.
Just so we are clear, how did Slant Six ruin SOCOM?
SOCOM Confrontation failed to capture what was great about socom + it was buggy as hell when released.
Gears of War 2 screwed up what made Gears 1 great and was buggy when released. Game got a free pass, why?
This are bad developers and I still play the game ever since the beta but the game most of he times give em blue balls and headdecks that how buggy and full of errors this game it's and the worse thing is that fanboys think that you or me are trolling idiotas fanboys
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Check all the videos from Blackwido88, you will see factual evidence why Socom Confrontation is bad. It is weird that with the latest updates still with technical problems. Good thing Zipper return with Socom 4. That's a good Socom.
Have you play Confrontation? If so, there should be no explaining why, its pretty obvious.
No, I want you to explain what is wrong. Because if you say the game was released in a buggy state then it just proves that you know nothing about development. Slant Six had no say so when the game was released, the final or added feature sets, or if patches are engineered. They can propose but the final decision is not theirs. They also can't go out and do an interview stating how none of those items were their decision. Well they can but if they do they will never work in the business again.
/6 after they Socom F up (and Socom is my fav. online game, which I do still play).... this is the last company I would want to work for... their rep is totally tarnished after they ignored the Socom community all through the beta phase and released a broken game and subsequent patches, were not QA properly and just broke more stuff... Socom is now in decent shape how many years after its release... and again, Socy is my fav. online shooter of all time
the DA is clueless or never played Socom...if they think what I posted above is not true...just another blind DA failure.. comment, which you will be respected for or you are a loser
Confrontation was in a buggy state over a year after its release....and still is. Release dates are one thing, but having almost 2 years to fix a game and it still doesn't work properly is just a complete epic fail for the company. Also they completely changed the game and turned it into crap, they slowed down the game dramatically and added sprint, took out user created ranked rooms which led to constant voting to get clan members in a ranked medley, no jump and climb, OTS view, game modes based on kills rather than the actual objective. There's many more to list but thats just a few.
Like I said, you do not understand the procedure, who orders what and when and who controls matters. You also do not get who controls the purse strings every step of the way. Further explanation is useless. And you apparently do not comprehend how to add a reply on this forum to a current post. On the other hand let's not forget that some games like Gears 2 had completely broken multiplayer yet received a review pass. That game took months to patch and is in a fairly dead state right now whereas SOCOM started to receive patches rapidly, is an extremely tight game now and has a robust online community. Thankfully certain persons have bowed out and I am sure SOCOM players are grateful.
but does this Morganfell fellow always act like a self righteous know it all prick? Back off dude. PBR
Morgan how do you know who was in control? It might have been the publisher who states the time frame of release ect, but Slant6 should have fixed most of these glitches since Beta. The game at launch was a Glitch fest, but right now allot of the glitches have been patched. Pretty much what everyone is complaining about is that they don't want Slant6 to do it, because Socom was Glitchy on release and thats something people don't want to see happen with Battle front. but yes Slant6 has worked hard on Socom fixing it with later updates
So you get pawned by Morganfell and you resort to personal attacks? 1. You do not know how the reply button works 2. The game works pretty fine, and did so within a few months of release 3. At least Slant six did their best to support the game, unlike Epic with Gears. That game is as broken as SOCOM:C, and unlike S6 Epic did nil to fix the game So how many of you who are against S6 feel Epic would ruin Gears 3 and that game would suck based on their track record? Give them a chance, they should deliver this time, Socom:C was their first major project as far as I know
thief i agree, i say give them a chance but like i said i just hope they don't mess it up at launch right now Confrontation is fixed (most of the complaint and big glitches are anyway) either way i want to see this game
Nitro...Sony was in control. The mistakes that were made were made by Sony under advisement from Zipper. Seth Luisi was elevated from Zipper to Sony proper. Zipper actually had oversight on the project. The publisher and IP holder (Sony with Zipper counseling) made the decisions. That's how it works in the gaming industry most of the time and that is how the situation unfolded in this case.
I'm sure you understand how the game was developed and what happened at what time right? Give me a break, you act like Slant Six is the innocent little puppy and its all Sony's fault. Please, this was Slant Six first game for PS3 and the failed miserably , there is no denying it. The sales where horrible, the review was horrible and the fans where beyond pissed. It was an online only game, there is no excuse that almost 2 years later that this game isn't fixed and working properly besides the fact they suck at making PS3 games, and need to stick to PSP. Also this isn't a forum, this is a news article and we are simply "commenting" on it. Also I don't need to add a reply because its obvious I'm talking to you, and you clearly understand that seeing how you replied to me. Edit: lol your right, SOCOM did get patches left and right didn't it? WRONG, it took them months to get patches out, and I mean MONTHS, and when they finally did they fixed something but in the process broke something else. Also Gears 2 is also very playable now, where Confrontation isn't. Epic said they screwed up and they know it, Slant Six on the other hand just makes excuses and cant come out and admit they screwed up. @Jager - The game does not work properly, the menus are broken with lag and so is the game. Not to mention there's never been one time where I put Confrontation in my PS3 and havn't seen an error message. You still can't even lean and throw a grenade with your left hand, instead the character throws it with his right hand if your leaning out of a wall, that grenade is going to hit the wall in front of you and fall straight to the ground. The run button still sticks for christ sake, also it took the game 2 YEARS to sell 1 million copies, that is pathetic. SOCOM 2 has sold 2.6 million and that was 7 years ago, and SOCOM 1 sold 3.5 mil and that was 8 years ago. Also there not releasing Gears 3 to soon, Gears 2 launched in 2008. If it does make the 2011 date (which I'm sure it will get delayed) thats almost 3 years apart. Its not like the game is coming out in 2 weeks.
The F? I don't know what you're smoking but Socom Confrontation is perfectly fine, it's been that way since march 2009. I've had the game since its beta days playing it continuously on and off. It was bad the first 2 months, got better around Jan, then became excellent in March. Also, Socom Confrontation has reached 1 million sales, Great for a socom game. Also, as Morgan said, Gears 2 launched with horrendous online problems, and didn't get patched until 2-3 months after release. Maybe we should be pissed that Epic is going to release Gears 3 so soon, when i is obvious from Gears 2 that they need more than a 2 year dev cycle.
Dead on Jager. SOCOM stumbled out of the gate...hard... because it was released before it was ready. The beta was a true beta but SS was not given enough time nor the ability to implement a second beta. Since then they have worked relentlessly on that game with little resources and it is so tight it easily surpasses any SOCOM title to date. I was a SOCOM fan from the beginning and spent hordes of time in SOCOM II despite it's unbelievable lag. Yet Confrontation has taken all of the best parts of past titles, ironed out the issues over time, and now the game is at the top of it's...er, dare I say...game. And as I said there isn't any problem finding plenty of varied matches.
yeah socom is and has been working great for a while now. let the haters hate. true socom fans are playing this game right now and are enjoying it. i play it when ever i get the chance (only game i still play online) and have FTB3 for psp which is like confrontations with ps2 graphics. the only problem is it was online only so if they did mess up in the beginning (which they did) you cant do anything but get mad and complain (which everone did) because there was nothing else to fall back on (no single player) so thats where all the hate for this game came from, you bought it and couldnt play it because the main part and whole purpose of the game didnt work.
Ruining gamers favorite franchises one at a time.
God damn it, i'm sick of online shooters, give me some deathmatch, a bunch of game modes, bots, and LAN, how a shooter should be. I love playing Battlefront with the assult mode or whatever it's called, 250 players per side, all going nuts. UT3 is great for crazy matches like that to, 32 player bot matches on the insane setting are hectic. No doubt they'll be charging a subscription fee if this goes ahead....lucasarts are about as low as they come right now, who cares about the fans when they can increase there profit margins whilst spitting in the faces of the people who have bought so many star wars games; here are the star wars games that I have bought: Darkforces (PC), X-wing (PC), Tie Fighter (PC), Star Wars Battlefront ( PC and XBOX version ), Starwars Battlefront 2 ( PC and XBOX version ), Starwars: Empire at War (PC), Star Wars: Forces of Corruption (PC), Kotor 1 ( PC and XBOX version) Kotor 2 (PC and XBOX versions), Star Wars lego ( PS2 )Star Wars: Republic Commando ( XBOX ), SUPER Star Wars ( SNES ), SUPER Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, SUPER Star Wars Return of the Jedi (SNES), Shadows of the Empire ( N64), Star Wars Rogue Squadron (N64),Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2(N64), Star Wats Rogue Squadron 3 ( Gamecube ), Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds ( PC ), Star Wars: Episode 1; Pod Racer ( N64 ) So yeah, loyal fans like that don't count for much, thanks for the pathetic PC port of Forces unleashed 18 months late....I made sure that for the first time in ages I didn't buy a star wars game....my friendship with lucasarts has come to an end
That's a hell of a commitment.
yeah it's pretty crazy, i didn't realise i'd bought so many until I started thinking about all the games....that is over a long period though, i'm 24 now, my first star wars game was like...15 years ago
Morganfell, is a well respected individual, due to the vast amount of knowledge he possesses. He is a man of THE GAMING INDUSTRY, and I agree with him, because all that Chap was saying is "socom is buggy" without ever answering his question. For the record, CONFRONTATION has made leaps and bounds from the start of its voyage, there is not denying that. They had a small budget, what did you expect them to do?
Actually I did answer it, try going back and reading what I edited.
As long as someone is making it, I'm a happy camper. For now, anyone who misses battlefront should try Warhawk imo. The gameplay is basically the same but with better air combat and a GI Joe type theme.
I've never played the Battlefront series, but when StarHawk comes out, meh to it. Warhawk is so damn good and overlooked greatly, StarHawk will be THE PSN MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE this gen imo. The only question is when can we get a damn release date.
Agreed, dont expect starhawk to be as overlooked though. The userbase is so much bigger now that the community can only grow from what it already is. It has the potential to be an amazing game as well as a popular game.
I would love a new battlefront game i spent hours on ps2 and PC version,even joind a clan for #2,i was really mad with what happend to freerads swbf3, but there only one game thats as good if not better and thats warhawk that game is still going strong and nothing can piss you off more then warhawk,still love that game i even had the original ps1 version but i cant wait to see how spacehawk vs sw battlefront will turn out, i think starhawk will be better, but i cant wait for swbfOnline,Stormtroopers are bad ass , join the empire our ships are giant triangles, telling people to move along "move along move along!" hah family guy starwars <3
Slant six problem with socom was the online servers and that was it socom graphics etc was fine plz stop with the stupid they ruined socom the ruined the socom online experience battlefront will both be single and multiplayer as the rest so im sure they will do a much better job yes socom was horrible but the environments etc was nicely done.
Free Radical had it first and it got passed around after that, I don't know if they're sharing the code or not, but I can't see them reinventing the wheel since they don't own the license anyways (that would be Lucas Arts). The big thing now, I would think, is how complete it is and how many tweaks were made to the original engine. http://video.google.com/vid...
Slant 6 is pretty terrible. Although Socom confrontation was highly underrated. Its pretty good as of right now. Thank god zipper is back on with socom 4.
I honestly thought Socom C wasn't bad the downside was poor player models and few maps.
