How about some information on what game it is in the title or description?

TheWickedOne5896d ago (Edited 5896d ago )

This story has bad editing all over it. Poor Title, Poor Description, and Poor Picture. Other then that a decent article.

tweaker5896d ago

Well there goes my chances. Only a selected few from the Official PS3 forums.

warhawk12345896d ago

wow you all didn't read the title of the article then thats the title and if any of us has a problem we should talk to Playstation. Cause I was mad but then I saw the title of the article from Playstation and understood why he put it that way. So actually its sweet short and simple and I can look at the article because of the title it sparked my curiosity. Other then that I can see that it is bad editing on playstations part.

LazyPhalanges5896d ago

If I am at “socom.us.playstation.com”, I expect them to be talking about Socom, however when I am at “n4g.com”, I don’t know what game the article is about until I read the description.

And It takes a little bit longer with dial-up so…

I would edit it to save you all from the 2 seconds it takes to click on the link but, it's to late now.

Games to Play if You Miss SOCOM

Last year I wrote an article titled, The State of SOCOM. I discussed my
love and history for the beloved third person shooter that helped pioneer
online multiplayer on consoles. It has been six years since we last had a
new SOCOM game.

Baffles me as to why they have not done anything with this franchise. Seeing as how it was #1 on the official PlayStation poll.

With all the trash put up weekly on the App Store why has nobody done a clone of this yet. I've been playing Defiance as my go to 3rd person since 2013 but still nothing like that old school Socom/Socom 2 up all night gameplay.

ONESHOTV22493d ago

the only game on that list that's like socom is wild land if you want socom type games then you will have to invest in a PC

USMC_POLICE2493d ago

You are looking at the view point I.e 3rd person view. Rainbow six siege is probably most like socom aside from H-Hour

Majin-vegeta2493d ago

Army training grounds its F2P.

ion6662493d ago

Insurgency Socom mod perfect adaption. Play it

C-H-E-F2492d ago

RAINBOW SIX: is the closest you'll get to Socom.

Also, in response to @lookatthisi

They let go the creators, and I think socom is a game that's hard to clone even the creators had a hard time making Socom 2, Socom 3.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I2492d ago

No way man. The devs at Trion made Defiance. I know different genres different games but this could have very easily turned into a war game rather than a kill the mutants/aliens games. Ghost recon actual gameplay is about the closest to the old Socom feel due to the squad format and team commands but it was still clunky at times. Using the wheel was cumbersome to command teammates and strategies on how you approcahed a scenario.

FFS you could control your teammates with a microphone in the ps2 days. You can't tell me that it is that hard when people throw up mods on the pc all the time that mirror the original games using random game engines. These are professionals with money/tech that most people don't have access to.

(Seth Luisi was the problem at zipper, he tried capturing ghost recon/cod fans with Socom by slowly turning the Socom series into Frankenstein GR/COD lite games)

C-H-E-F2492d ago

Getting that feel, that rush being the last one alive, Rainbow Six is the closest I got to that feeling since Confrontation. And we all know that was a horrible Socom, but looking back at it, SC was a great game just had a horrible release.

I didn't play defiance, but ghost recon is and was trash.

InTheZoneAC2491d ago

A lot will defend Seth saying he was a puppet, but his inactions or actions didn't help. He helped ruin the franchise.

Would You Buy SOCOM Confrontation for One Penny?

JM:
"Would you purchase a game you can’t play for a single penny? Video game retailer GameStop seems to think that it is worth trying to sell to this market."
