The company already gave a true sequel to Socom on the PS3 but there are still more projects that have been tightly under warps for the developer.
Are they actually going to be good this time?
Very good question. But the bigger question is are they going to listen to their fanbase this time? I honestly don't have too much confidence in these guys anymore. As far as this generation goes, GRAW2 took the crown away from the Socom series for best Tactical 3rd Person Shooter, and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is looking awesome. If these two games they are currently working turn into a couple of stinkers, then I think it will be time to eith sell or close this studio.
They were never any good...I played the first Socom on the PS2 and was like meh...is this the best Sony's got online...
you must never played Socom 2 online.
MAG is a great game. Only a few would take their time to learn the game which is why few liked the game. I hope the next MAG you can choose from these factions dual factions. Chimera and Valor or Sver and Helghast I did not include raven because helghast and raven are very close in looks. The variety in weapons, locations, abilities, etc... would be awesome. The chimera would have their special ability that was in resistance 1 but it is the last thing you can use points on. Valor's special ability that will be the last thing you can use points on would be something like juggernaught except it does not work against sniper rifles. Now for helghast and Sver Sver would get a ability called rebel and your gun has less recoil and does twice the damage. It is also the last thing you can use points on. The helghast special ability would be... you know what this idea is to great to give all details out without getting paid.
No, just no.
what is people's problem with SOCOM 4? ok, maybe I never played any previous SOCOM on PS2 but hey, I think SOCOM 4 is quite well done! personally I give it a solid 8 and the story mission is good and have a decent story and I enjoy it very much! the MP is also smooth and easy to get into! not to forget that 45 is damn hot lol!
exactly you've never played so you dont know how good it was
Sweet been wondering what they were up to..I hope its a new IP
Please Zipper, no. After the embarrassing mess that was Socom 4, I don't need anymore projects from you. R.I.P. Socom.
Socom 1 HD!
If its a Socom game that captures the essence of Socom 2 or even Socom: Combined Assault, then great, or if its The Socom Collection with all the online maps from all the PS2 Socom games, then I will be all over that like white on rice, but anything short of these would be a waste of time.
I can't believe the article said, a true sequel to socom. S4 is more like mag2.
I disagree, Mag was much better. Sure. They were using the same outdated engine. But Mag was just a better game overall. Imo of course.
Well said. Socom 4 is complete garbage compared to Socom II.
Im with you guys hey zipper please stop making games until you can listen to your fans at least a little tiny bit. Its getting annoying listening to you tell us what the future is then sh8ting in a CD case and calling it a game. Used to be my favorite Dev now my least favorite although i did enjoy MAG for what it was the socom series and the complete lack of respect for the fans request in the socom series is what way out weighs any +'s i gave for MAG. Please listen or disappear completely.
I agree. Zipper was once my favourite developer....past tense.
Socom 2 HD Please
Just release Socom 2 in HD.
SOCOM 5 AND MAG 2 WOULD BE MY BEST GUESS OR A NEW IP
WHY U SPEAK WITH CAPS ON?
Because when I was writing SOCOM I forgot to turn the CAPs off. AND WHY U NO SPEAK GOOD ENGRISH
Because I was Referring to this.
Not even gonna lie, that was pretty funny.
I hope there is a sequal to MAG
I completely agree. Mag 2 Would be awesome. They just need to fix the Que times, or just have more modes with less people so finding games will be quicker and easier.
At the start of this console generation Zipper was probably my fav developer(because of Socom 2&Combined Assualt).But saying that they let me down would b an understatement.MAG imo was probably their best work this gen,I believe it was underrated but I also think it got a few things wrong.Socom 4 on the other hand...well ILL just say it wasnt very good. Though because of my memories of Socom 2&3 im willing to give them 1 more chance.just 1 though. For thier next projects i think the graphics need 2 be good/great but they really need to create a game thats different enough& avoid following the crowd.
If it's a shooter they need to use the killzones engine
M.A.G was awesome when 2.0 came out with Move support. So much fun with that game, but now that Planetside 2 is coming out there will be no need for a mag 2.
yea but Planetside 2 is a pc exclusive unfortunately
when asked about ps3 version they said wait for more info which in turn means it is in the works. they could have just said it is pc only or they have no plans for a ps3 version but they didn't so i am very positive it will come to ps3 as well. dc universe was the start
I think we could see Planetside 2 on PS4 or whatever it's called.. if it's going to take a few years to develop i'm sure we will see it on consoles. Given the fact we can use UBS Keyboard/mouse as well no one would be at a disadvantage.
apparently from the listing one is a RPG and the other a third person shooter.
Rpg? Weird, I can't picture zipper doing anything like that. Hopefully that tps is socom hd.
I'm guessing MAG 2 with more RPG like customization. Get 200xp for scope...etc. Probably kill streaks also EDIT: maybe they're expanding on the 3 factions with having the ability to visit a independent arms broker (like mgs4).
RPG, interesting to see
MAG + battlefield type of destruction + more variety of vehicles + more maps and customizations = Best shooter ever
MAG 3.0, all new factions, game modes, weapons, maps, same online infrastructure.
Im still waiting on socom 4 dlc, what good is the pro pass is we never get shi*? I bet one of them is a socom collection though. I would LOVE that.
Ya, just like the confrontation dlc every 3 months, LOL
if its game set in the near future...the artwork looks like that...I think they should put someone else onto the Socom series...its terrible now...
MAG is still the best shooter of the gen. I'm always hoping for a MAG 2.
Socom and umm socom. I just know it. XD
People hating on SOCOM 4 must just hate it bc they get there ass handed to them bc SOCOM 4 is not AAA but its far from trash!!! I for one will welcome a better SOCOM game!!
lol im not trash at that game "check ma stats dawg" LOL game is not trash but it is complete treash compared to socom 1,2 and CA no seriously you don't have to suck at a game to think its bad but good try on that one
Well you know what would happen if they released another game like Socom 2 in today's market? Nothing, it would do worse than Socom 4 and it would flop like crazy. I played Socom since the first and I thought S4 was just fine, just a bunch of complainers that would complain about everything including a S2 HD if that ever came out! They'd be like, "oh the HD isn't good enough" or "oh it's not as good as I remember" or "oh I hate leaning where's a good cover mechanic"....
I hope one of the games will be a spiritual successor to Crimson skies. I enjoyed the one they put out in the past & seeing as MS owns that IP. I would like to see what they could do with their own IP.
Zipper is quickly turning into the next Rare. IMO, they turned into them when I played MAG for the first time.
No offense, but if you didn't like MAG, you're part of the problem, IMO. MW3, the games industry equivalent of Justin Bieber, awaits you.
They've been becoming worse and worse with time. Idk if I could trust them anymore.
great, more shitty games to add to the ps3fanboys "exclusive" list.
MAG was a huge disappointment hoping for a lil more next time.
Please let it be MAG 2 or Socom 2 HD with full online. MAG was an amazing game. It was flawed, but the structure for the modes is unmatched. Domination and Acquisition were absolutely amazing. Interdiction was amazing too, although I wish it was included from the beginning so the player count would be higher. Maybe in MAG 2 they could have planes or jets in certain modes like BF 3...
Prob another 3rd person shooter using the same old MAG and SOCOM game engine, NEXT !
tight or else fall in the pits of hell :D
