Transparant scoreboard

Well the patch isn't ready yet, but coming. For now Slant Six has teased us with a video of one of the new changes, the transparent scoreboard that allows you to move while viewing it (like old SOCOMs).

Sloooww news, busy, etc

Hey ya'll,

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Been so busy with so many different things, I barely have time to even turn on my PS3.

I really appreciate all the emails and blog comments I've gotten from all the SOCOM fans out there. You seem to love the blog and I definitely want to keep it up. If there was more to post I would :p.

And YES, I know, me and Hellman still haven't recorded our review podcast. It will come one day, I just don't know when.

So are you still loving SOCOM? Any things you want changed/added to the game (apart from the obvious trophies & party system)?

And ya, I'm well aware of the Q&A that was done on Specifically the answer to this question:

Why can't we join a game in progress from our friend's list or clan list?

While this was a feature of previous SOCOM games, this was never announced to be a feature for SOCOM: Confrontation. We do realize that it is a highly desired feature and we are looking to see what can be done to add it. No promises, but it is something we want to add.

I mean, how ridiculous is that answer? So because it wasn't promised before we shouldn't expect a feature that SHOULD be in every online game, to be in SOCOM Confrontation?

Like, come on.

1up re-reviews Confrontation. Gives it a B+

Sorry I'm late with this info, I was away all weekend. But its worth mentioning none the less. Since Confrontation has been working a lot better, 1up decided to re-review it as they had previously promised. The result? An entire grade higher, as it comes away with a very excellent B+ grade.

Check out the new review here.
