Kombo: E3 2010: SOCOM 4 Hands-On

Kombo: SOCOM 4 (SOCOM) is the first SOCOM for the PlayStation 3 which will also be available for the Sony Move this Fall. SOCOM gameplay feels just like a third person over the shoulder shooter with cover mechanics, the new feature to be that sets SOCOM apart is the the Move. Playing both versions of the game revealed some interesting comparisons that could be influential for the future of shooters using motion control on the PS3.

Glad to hear the AI is up there, too. Cannot tell you how many times I was screaming at Boomer through my tv to TAKE FUKING COVER!

Gameplay looks so good.


Top 10 Forgotten Sony Franchises

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "Gaming’s past is full of wonderful memories, many of which include some of our favorite moments in all of video games and helped shape our current gaming habits. And, thanks to the awesomeness that is the PlayStation, many of these memories can be found in Sony’s franchises. But what happens when a great franchise or IP just disappears? While sometimes its just forgotten, never to be heard from again that’s not something that we here at Link-Cable can bear the thought of. So for this week’s Top 10 we are taking a look at the Top 10 Forgotten Sony Franchises and also crossing our fingers that someone with the power to bring these back just happens to stumble across this list."

Don’t forget Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy, Legend of Dragoon, Freedom Wars, Invisimals, Lemmings, Modnation Racers, Pursuit Force, Resistance, Siren, Soul Sacrifice, Mark of Kri, & Wild Arms

darthv722115d ago

To be fair, many of those are not forgotten. They just ran their course while others were not given the respect they deserved to garner a continuation. Games that are one-offs probably had no intention of making them into series but I do wish they would rethink that. Some deserve to be given a follow-up.

UltraNova2115d ago

Agreed. Maybe Sony can contract Bluepoint to remaster Heavenly Sword, see people's reaction to the game and decide wether to give the go for a sequel.

Also Lair can be remastered es as a PSVR game and take it from there.

Legacy of Kain would fit right in there, although sony has no rights to that IP as far as I'm aware.

Ah later instalments were not sony exclusive, so dont mind me sir :p

Xenophon_York2115d ago

Remaking the very first Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen would be amazing.

MWH2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

Maybe one day the coin will land on its edge.

Michiel19892115d ago

I'd prefer Soul Reaver but Blood Omen would do just fine as well

Godmars2902115d ago

To be fair, Wild Arms did run its course, was effectively run into the ground, going by example of last entry using characters from all games. Being an STG title on the PSP.

Could always revive the western/steampunk setting.

_-EDMIX-_2115d ago

I know right! I'm still waiting for someone at Sony to make the Getaway 3 lol

I always wondered what the PlayStation 3 version was going to be like.

SuperSonic912114d ago

CTR Remake please. Best kart racer ever made by Naughty Dog

Rangerman12082114d ago

Finally someone mentioned Soul Sacrifice, Siren, Legend of Dragoon, and Freedom Wars. Those games are in desperate of a new installment. Especially with Folkore.

Sitdown2114d ago

Lemmings is a PlayStation franchise? I would say Battle Arena Toshinden.

frostypants2114d ago

Lemmings was a franchise waaaaay before even the PS1 saw the light of day. Nobody's forgotten it.

thisismyaccount2114d ago

and ALUNDRA .. dunno if it´s a Sony IP or not.

I'm not sure single games would be considered franchises. If you want to say Heavenly Sword is one, I'd also put Enslaved on the list. Loco Roco is in the same boat as Patapon. But things like Tomba are certainly missed.

GBG_Jason2115d ago

Never mind me, you are absolutely correct.

Kleptic2115d ago

yeah, it was the Ninja Theory (same dev as HS), just not a ps3 exclusive

Michiel19892115d ago

It was a good game though, I wouldnt mind seeing a sequel at some point

Yui_Suzumiya2115d ago

There was going to be a sequel to Enslaved. Unfortunately it never left the drawing board. Hopefully someday it will be realized.

jznrpg2115d ago

Enslaved was super undervalued, loved that game

UltraNova2114d ago

....and in dire need of a Remaster!

FallenAngel19842115d ago

How can you all something a franchise if it only has one installment?

At that point it’s just an IP. You can only call it a franchise when there’s multiple installments.

SamPao2115d ago

you should look up the definition of a franchise.
If there is more than just a game, say merchandise its already a franchise.
