New 4+ minutes of Socom 4 Gameplay video
Wow huge graphical improvement. Can't wait for my favorite tactical shooter!
Not bad, and also thanks to our wonderful Socom community's efforts.... E-tags are now gone from Classic Mode. Grenades no longer have those white trails. Cover mode is now an option in Classic Mode. The OTS view will be push back more to the Socom 2 game in Classic Mode. Devs are looking into the lean feature. Faster Movement Speeds Updated crosshairs Just an update from the Socom 4 forums. They're pushing for lobbies, 10 sec mic alternatives, pistols as secondary and a demolition mode now.
I hate E-tags they should be removed in everygame they are so freakin cheap.
demolition should be a given.....i dont get how they cant add lean or demolition i mean it was in the first socom like 7 years ago lol its mind boggling. PS3IT DOES EVERYTHING.....BUT LEAN AND DEMOLITION LOL come on zipper.
ohh yeaa, push the camera back, make it easier for corner camping fags. What a fucking joke.
What are e tags? Thanks
If I'm not mistaken, e-tags are the signs above the player that indicated who's your friend/enemy without having to check your fire. Cheap indeed. In the early MAG Beta, there were no e-tags and I thought it was great; but I guess (just like the SOP in MGS4) the skills were "brought to the masses" instead of them developing it so people wouldn't be shot repeatedly by people with just a little more "battle-sense". Well that, and everyone took cover (but they had to work as a group or the team/squad that actually did work as a group would dominate).
Pixelsword ahhhhh okay thanks!! But KZ3 takes advantage of that with the infiltrator! FUCK I HATE THOSE GUYS!
All of the Socoms on PS2 had E-tags, so I'm not sure what the big deal is. Personally I like them. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yeah, super glad w/ their new changes thanks to SOCOM comm. I can't wait to play some awesome 5-man co-op <3
You said the phrase: ''Tactical Shooter'' That is what makes Socom different to others shooters.
i am not sure i will get into the online for socom but SP for sure
I hate B-rolls, they are so empty without an interview.

stop making these. they haven't been good since the ps2. *I forgot about the psp versions, they where pretty good* however If they do plan to release this they better hold off and make sure its fixed before release, *also I was not aware they fixed the last one*. and before anyone at all says fanboy, I can't really think of anything else besides ghost recon *old not new* that is on par with the game strat wise.
sorry but Socom is the only real tactical shooter still around on the two big consoles. Socom Confrontation started out very and I mean very horrible but slant six patched it up and its straight up old Socom now. COD, Battlefield, Killzone, etc all cater to new and all players. Socom is for the real team based players with a difficult learning curve..
The PSP versions were good and there was only one for PS3 that was a dud until a year after release in which it got patched multiple times. Hardly an excuse to kill it with the huge fanbase it still has going for it.
NaiNaiNai @ i agree. I never played any SOCOM game, but I know SOCOM confrontation was shit, and SOCOM 4 is NOT what SOCOM should be like.
If you never played a Socom game then how the f*&k do you know what a Socom game should be like?
"and before anyone at all says fanboy, I can't really think of anything else besides ghost recon *old not new* that is on par with the game strat wise." That's fine and I don't think you are a fanboy, but I will say you have no right to say not to make them or even judge it that harshly since you have not even played it.
I did play it. its the only reason I know it sucked. but I wasn't aware they fixed it, I sold my ps3 very quickly. Of course I haven't even owned a 360 lately bought a new one to replace the RROD and sold it in less then a month. I guess PC gaming has spoiled me. >.>
seems so lack luster for some reason. these b-roll trailers are doing more harm then good.
lol.. this looks terrible.
for some reason i didnt like this video i think the e3 demo was way better
tht gun sound is absolutely terrible...I agree with frankiebeans player movement seems a bit out of place. looks good otherwise
i mean really everything seems so lifeless.
Anyone know when the beta starts?
It will be announced on Feb 28 ( next Monday ) along with info on what we will be playing .
Nice. Thanks. Helpful bub to you sir.
LMAO ! T_T @ 3:18 rag doll effect * Garnaaaaaaade ! Any way see you in the Beta bros !
This game should be great! I'm looking more forward to the single player but the classic mode is looking good online too with all of the changes they made for the fans. Casuals/COD fans will love the regular online though.
I don't understand the appeal of lobbies. I'd prefer party matchmaking any day. You don't have to sift through menus upon menus to only fail to join a game because it's full. I'm not trying to be rude, but can someone please explain to me why they enjoy the lobby system better. I'd rather abide by the devs rules for what a ranked game is and just adapt... in a matchmaking setting.
Lobbies are great for custom matches. Single map rotations and clan wars. It makes finding a specific game you and your buddies like to play easier than just matchmaking with a bunch of random players to a random playlist. Lobbies build reputations among certain players, clans and new/old players. Lobbies is what made SOCOM different from the pack and made it stood out and shine amongst mediocrity..
@04soldier Thanks for your comment. I agree lobbies are great for custom matches, but they shouldn't be ranked. Clan wars are what custom matches are about, or any type of rivalry. The reason they shouldn't be ranked is because it is too much catered to the individual person, and not based on the devs idea of what a ranked match should be. Ranked matches should be determined by the devs, not by the players. The devs also said they are gonna be constantly switched up ranked game types, catering to fan favorite ideas, but also maintaining their uniform guidelines.
Its looking nice. I've never played a SOCOM game, I always thought it was more online and I was into the first 2 Desert Storm games. I do love squad based single player games like Rainbow 6, Ghost Recon and Brothers in Arms so I hope the Single player portion of SOCOM is good, then I might have to pop my cherry. Especially since I'll have Move and a Sharpshooter.
Wish you had experienced it on PS2. Those were the days. I would literally play SOCOM II for hours on end. It was so good that it saved me money on buying new games every month. I can't vouch for SOCOM 4 just yet. I gotta reserve my judgment until it releases. Then and only then could I categorize it with the greats of the ps2 era...
Wow they really improved the graphic a lot from the last build they showed.
Damn i can't wait or this!!!!!!!!
