i call fail. only took them a year to make the game worse than before. i wont even bother with 1.6. slant 6 is almost as worthless as activision ended up being. this dlc should have been gratis for all of us suckers who got this game day one. all my guys agree at least we got a headset and a coaster lol. that headset does kick major butt though.

I agree with comment 107, /6 you need to make it so when you back out of a quick match game you return to the quick match lobby with your original party instead of to the main menu. That way it really will be ‘quick’ instead of tedious and slow having to re-invite all of your friends into a new match. Otherwise I think you guys have put in a great effort on all the updates and patches and socom is pretty much complete. There is no other shooter that takes the kind of strategy this game does, i love it!

P.S. Oh yeah ties need to be settled by the game objectives again (bombs planted, hostages extracted, etc) instead kills unless its suppression or elimination of course.

#156 i can promise you I get more play than you in a week than you have your whole life, and second people can say what ever they want because it’s called feedback..the one thing worse than a complainer is someone who has to moan and cry about others moaning and crying. Let them say what they want its a free country and I’m pretty sure Sony wants feed back of all kinds to make this game better, it could care less though about what you think about people in general because they can’t fix that.
long live socom

#159, Glad to see your part of the problem, a whole generation of idiots having everything just like they want it, haven’t had to work a day in their lives, parents care less what they do as long as they aren’t in their hair. OBVIOUSLY, you don’t have any kids, and along with that any common sense. And what, I am supposed to be humbled by the fact your a player?? Your cool cause you know how to screw chicks and leave em high and dry, oh so sorry, I had forgotten how the definition of a man has changed over the years.

+ BaZooKaJoE79 on December 17th, 2009 at 3:34 pm said:

Also to 159 feedback is not feedback when it is complete pissing and moaning like a lil mommas boy. Since when was saying something sucks with out any validation called feed back i think you and Blades should start a boyband since you females are so good at singing the blues!!!

I am proudly not paying a dime for this DLC. Maybe in the future Sony will give the SOCOM franchise to a more competent PS3 developer who does not make empty promises that have amounted to one DLC pack over 14 months after the game’s release and a game that still has fundamental flaws that have not been worked out over numerous patches. It is depressingly hilarious that in their own promo video there is someone unable to use the turret gun because a gun laying down next to it screws up the options.

I do give Slant Six credit for making an effort during all this time, but the game should have been delayed a long time instead of having the community deal with all this nonsense. It wasn’t ready for release 14 months ago, and as of the latest patch, some think it still isn’t even up to working release standards.

+ DanteDeathDealer on December 17th, 2009 at 4:24 pm said:

Well if you look at the post on socom.com it actually says at the bottom of the page that the post was posted on the 15th. So they were saying it would be out by the 16th which already puts them a day late. Chalk up another screw up for /6, but who’s counting…i lost count a long time ago…

+ Bladesofgold on December 17th, 2009 at 4:35 pm said:

Socom servers right now are unplayable. Worst lag i’ve ever seen. Sony you’re just pathetic for allowing them to charge anything for a game that can’t even be played. There are constant freeze ups today and now we’re supposed to pay for items that the other Socom games had day one. Solag is just bad to play online and haters please don’t tell me that you have exprienced no lag. This game is a joke.


171

+ BaZooKaJoE79 on December 17th, 2009 at 4:36 pm said:

They said the release date was the 17th go play COD with all the other bedwetters that can’t handle a real online shooter!!!!!!


172

+ DanteDeathDealer on December 17th, 2009 at 4:37 pm said:

Although there is an upside, the patch fixed a lot of stuff on the game, so at least they did that right. This dlc better come out real soon.

Will it looks like the DLC is good I will pay $9.95 to get it but wont pay the $14.95 so if I don’t get this weekend I wont get at all.

Actually blades, the game is pretty much lag free now. I had problems with lag before but its doing pretty well now. If you use a router that may be the issue too, i had a old router but bought new one and fixed the majority of the lag, this patch just fixed the stuff on their end up so you may want to look into that.

I mean what is the point of posting that DLC is tommorrow, yesterday, when infact it may not be out til midnight here on the east coast tonight.

Yall really need to get a more consistant setup going for the PS store. If store update is on Thurs. then it should be updated at 12 noon est, no exceptions. West coast would have stuff early in the morning and so forth. This mess of waisting a whole day waiting to spend my money is just horrible. The ps store updates is prolly the only complaint I got about psn.

Even getting it free, it isn’t worth the time I took to download it and the updates.

Broke game is broke. Not to mention the TERRIBLE community that’ll kick you for any reason.

Screw that. And screw paying $10-15 for an expansion that should be free to players that put up with your crap, Slant Six.
