this game is not CoD play type friendly. camping is discourage. sitting back sniping and not using team work will get you no where. team work is a must with no lone wolf type style getting you many points.

bad company 2 players that were team oriented will be right at home however.

I was more referencing the difference in controls when switching between the two games, it takes anywhere from a few matches to a day to reconfigure my brain around the controls properly.

Teamwork is dependent on the player, not necessarily the game they cut their teeth on. The average CoD kiddie won't succeed but I wouldn't use BC2 as a benchmark for teamwork though, as any player who plays for the objectives and to win will overall be more suited than somebody strictly out for their k/d ratio.

I have the same problem. Was killing me on a game that switched some buttons from 360 to PS3... SAME GAME... just decided to change a few buttons. Was getting whipped because of it. :lol:

No way. This thing has been in development for years by a decent sized studio. I'm not saying it's the size of the Crysis team or COD team but it's a lot of guys doing a lot of work.

Admittedly, though, this is why I don't buy many FPS's at launch for $60. Unless you get to play the game at a friend's house to know just how much fun the multiplayer's going to be, it's hard to know whether an FPS is basically just a 6-hour single player game or a really addictive multiplayer game with an almost limitless amount of replayability.


Thanks for the actual response. I thought this game started development as a PSN title. Apparently not though

stick to the socom thread bud.


How old are you? Does it feel good to be a hater? You've been a member of this site for 3 years, yet my question gets answered by a dude who has been here ~1year and you are just a dick. Grow up

Are you mad cause Socom 4 sucks balls? and Socom 3 was a complete failure


Contrary to what you may believe, I do not work for Sony or Zipper. So why the Fuck would I be "mad" because S4 blows? I am certainly not mad that instead of spending hundreds of hours on Socom, that time will be spent doing much more productive things with actual people instead of virtual soldiers. But some people who are obsessed with video games and troll me on the forums just won't understand that. And for you to reference Socom 3, which came out in 2007 and was universally trashed by every Socom fan, makes no sense. I find it mad funny that people, who have never gamed with me or spoken to me, instantly hate on me if I am outside the Socom forums, Grow up.

Still on the fence. Just need a little bit more on the gameplay details and their roadmap for their online plans (or general out line).

I did see an ad for something that was being sponsored by Brink. Didn't work as I have already forgotten what it was.

Funny, I can't decide between the Spec Ops and Psycho packs. Actual weapons are better than weapon skins in my book. Plus both the Spec Ops and Psycho characters look great.

OK.... I'll say it

Brink looks like they just mixed Borderlands and Team Fortress 2 and plan on charging $60 for it.

You forgot Mirror's Edge and maybe a little BioShock.

Not sure whats up with the $60 remark though. Borderlands was full retail in the past u know.

Yeah... I dunno. ZOMG IT TAKES ELEMENTS FROM OTHER GAMES JUST LIKE... EVERY OTHER GAME EVER!??!?!

Borderlands meets TF2 sounds pretty sweet to me. As long as it is a good game and fun to play (and at this point all indications are that it is)... $60 is fine with me for a new game. But I was a bit disappointed with Black Ops and KZ3. Looking for something like this. :)

I'm probably sticking to psycho pack because of the weapon and $10 credit. I'm PSYCHED about early release

I need a demo for this game to figure out whether I should preorder or wait for it to get cheaper before I buy it. Will it play as well as it looks like it will? I don't know. Crysis 2 was hyped a lot but then I played the demo and didn't care for it, don't know if I'll even get that when it's $20 or something.

Of course it was then, but it didn't just ape other games and say "these elements from ____ were a good Idea, so we should just use them and call it our "new" IP. Here comes the money!!!!"

organization, you do realize borderlands took stuff from every other FPS and just added a Diablo style loot element to it. the skill tree wasnt ground breaking either and have been in many other games. give me a break.... oh and it was set in a wasteland. ground breaking stuff there! just stop talking.

the games solves problems i had with bad company 2 (nothing but snipers, overpowered shotguns, instant revive) and from what i can tell, its the first fps with a parkour free running system. i dont care what it borrows, cuz EVERY SINGLE GAME borrows. only real question is, is it fun or not?

I had to burn some promo stuff so I went ahead and preordered this.

The interview did help but I'm still on fence, not sure why.

The update system they have planned sounds fantastic. Wonder if it can be applied to things other then fps. Fast easy tweaks without patch review sounds great. I just hope they don't get to controlling.
