RipTen: When it comes to tactical squad based shooters, many people tend to think of SOCOM. However, since it’s a PS3 exclusive… what are the PC and Xbox 360 fans supposed to play?
I wish SOCOM was multiplat. I want to play it on PC. Actually, I want to play it with the sharpshooter. Actually...I'm conflicted.
So do I! I prefer to play these kinds of games on my PC!! Please SOCOM!! come to PC!!!
Just pick up a PS3 and you'll have the best of both worlds. PC for teh awesome graphics and PS3 for exclusives and PSN.
Ya. PC would be pretty cool as long as it doesn't take anything away from the PS3 version (I always think thats kinda unfair when that happens). Mods would be sick.
Last I checked consoles are what take away from a multiplat that is on PC. Anyways looking forward to both games.
I went into this thinking that a period would be involved. Seeing only a military shooter disappointed me. Are we not done with those yet, people?
Only SOCOM is third person shooter. There are many classical third person shooter games available made by great independent studios, they just don't get the same exposer as these big titles. I am looking forward to both games, though.
Battlefield BC2 requires tactics, as does KZ3 Operations mode. CoD is the only shooter where it is pretty much run and gun and you can be a one man team if you can twitch fast enough accurately.
as much as I hate what they did to my beloved franchise, NO!
Hmm, Zipper has always done a really good job with the SOCOM series, Codemasters royally butchered the last installment of the Flashpoint series and then completely ignored the complaints by those who bought the game so no, I would not consider it a replacement. Pity since there aren't enough strategic shooters for consoles, in my opinion.
