Here's some Socom Multiplayer Footage
Wow, that ADS view looked like fucking shit. If you have to use that to be competitive (AKA to shoot straight at longish range), then this game is probably ruined for me. I was SO looking forward to this as well. I suppose it deserves a chance to re-impress me though, so I'll reserve total judgment until it actually ships/I play a demo.
Damnit, SOCOM is dead now.
RIP SOCOM 2 memories
Seriously, regenerative health?!
Blood on the screen?! (SO REAL!!)
ONE HIT MELEE
XP numbers popping up on screen?
WHAT THE FUCK ZIPPER!
and FUCK you Call of Duty for starting all these trends that make me hate FPS gaming.
I'll reserve final judgment for when I actually play it... but its not looking good.
This just put a huge damper on my day. I thought they said that Regenerative health will NOT be in online. Maybe its an option, one can hope.
I would have liked to see Elimination play, that mode is intense and is the proper way to play SOCOM. Not this TDM nonsense where you justt spawn, run out and die, spawn again.
At least the animations and visuals look nice enough. I hate that FPS view though.
Yea MAG did suck but I'm looking forward to SOCOM's coop. It looks like they're doing some things to keep co-op interesting over multiple play throughs.
Multiplayer does't interest me for most games. I'd rather play some Battlefield or Team Fortress 2, games that focus on multiplayer and actually do something interesting. Tacked on crap like Dead Space or whatever I can just ignore, the single player is fine but multiplayer is rarely a selling point.
Sorry about my previous rage. SOCOM is something I hold very near and dear, and is one of the few things I get passionate/pissy about.
