Looks like current gen servers will remain up.

I always hated when they shut down the online to any game where the main focus was multi-player. I assume MAG will get shut down as well.


I hope MAG doesn't get shut down, it was honestly one of the best Online Shooters I've ever played. Sure it had its flaws, but I loved the Massive Battles.

My bad on the confusion guys, Socom 4 servers will stay up, however I nor do any other Socomers consider it an actual Socom game. So those servers will stay on for the 300 people playing. Don't worry about MAG either that's not going anywhere . Confrontation servers will be up for another 5 years if we don't get a proper socom or HD collection so no worries there.

Glad to hear this. I need to bust the current gen games out of my backlog before they go under too.

Throw Socom 4 out the window. Literally one of the worst games of this generation

Don't worry guys, if they take SOCOM 4 servers offline there's like 3 Gears of War games.

Player, you should pick up GRAW2. The multiplayer beta was a lot of fun and if we could get a full team or even a squad of CAG Socom players on a side it would make for some fun times over the course of this summer (I'll need a few weeks though).


i converted to pc gaming last may, and im upset about graw2 being so dumbed down, i cant do it lol. i'd give anything to get the good old games back, not this simplified stuff everybody is doing.
i bet a team of about 4-5 of us would always roll over anybody else in graw2 anyways

I don't. You'll just end up with Gears of Shit or Holla Booty Modern Whorefare clones.

I had a dream last night that Sony remade SOCOM 2 in HD, and included popular maps from S1-4(CA) for $14.99 on PSN (digital-only). My dream also included Sony releasing other maps as DLC in later months...at no point in my dream was I disappointed with any of these decisions.

Sony, make it happen!

Haha thats great. What happened to Tuesday? I was on til around 1130 and no one else (B and Gold) was on. We need to get down on that CS or GR:FS

Syngamer, we have all had that dream. Lets just hope it comes true before we are all done with PS3.

I'll play now. I was on Monday and again last night. You just need to let me know when you're going to be on to play some CS and I'm in for sure. That was too much fun with MrB last week.

Do you guys play Tom Clancy Ghost Recon still?



Smog and I would. We've just been playing Counter Strike because of the no-respawn modes. I've really enjoyed what I've played of the GR FS multiplayer.

Had fun playing a couple rounds of Socom with you the other night Smog. I was really bummed that I couldn't get my internet to keep a connection to the game. When I got booted the final time, I unplugged my router and reset the whole thing. We need to try it again soon.

I'll play on Tuesday. I should probably try tonight to see if it'll even work for me. If not I'll play CS GO or GRFS.

I'll play on Tuesday. I should be free from around 8 till my son wakes up at around 12am or so. I just have to remember to charge my earpiece.

Man, seeing this thread show up at the top of my subscribed threads list made me all sentimental.
I'd join you guys if I still had SOCOM.

So...what games are actually being played? I missed shooters and I'm not in the mood for BF3 or COD. Do CAGs play S4 or Confrontation? They are both extremely cheap that I'm up to picking one up.

Well, some of us were playing CS:GO. But personally I'm not too fond of it. I have the PC version and it's just miles better. Not just graphics-wise, but the kb + m support is iffy at times and there is inherent input delay in the game (most likely caused by v-sync).

I did see Gold and Smog playing Confrontation a while ago, though you'll have to ask them if they still play.

Are there any shooters coming up that CAGs are planning on picking up and playing regularly?

Game Stop would probably pay you to take a copy off their shelf.

Both Smog and I enjoy Counter Strike (probably because we've never played it on the PC). It's definately better though when we play with Option or MrB since they both play it on the PC. Ghost Recon is also fun when you fill out a squad. I'm haven't really looked too far ahead since my ps3 died and I lost all my saves for games like Skyrim. It's hard to fit it all in with life plowing full steam ahead.

Go buy Confrontation Syngamer, its 4 bucks at GS! So nice to see this thread alive again! See you guys online tonight. I'm in for Socom, GR or CS whichever you guys want

Smog, if you ever re-establish a Socom Confrontation night, I would definitely be down. Although PC has all the great FPS and what not, there definitely is lacking good ol' 3rd person tactical shooters.
