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 SOCOM.com. 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.

I should of knew it was gonna be like this form the Beta .. but i was stupid and bought it anyway ...... I have bought all Socoms in the Past..

I think they knew they had a turd awhile ago thats why it took so long to develop this game .

So they basically took our money and ran

Dave,


I think it's obvious at this point that Confrontation was released to early. It would have better to wait until Jan. or Feb. 09 to release it. I think Sony just wanted it released now and just wants Slant six to patch it up over the next 6 months. Were basically still playing a polished beta at this point.



Now, one thing I would love to add is the ability to load up your saved load outs between rounds. In the armory screen at the main menu you can save up to 6 but as of know you cannot load them up while in the game. It would be much easier that instead of having to change everything like now.

I agree with Derek. That's an option necessary in this game as well. Dito on the party invites......
