If this ever happens it will be hilarious to listen to all the Socom "Vets" criticize it to no end and flop because they're unable to be pleased. 

 

That will be awesome!!!

I can't believe how great this looks in 5 months of actual production! In 1 year from now it will be amazing!!! Bring on the spiritual successor to Socom 2.

So considering that the game is pre-alpha what are things you like or don't like from the video?

My body is ready. Everything looks spot on mechanically, which is all I care about. The animations need to be cleaned up and the melee is kind of odd, but I can live with that. This game will be the hardcore 3rd person socom experience I miss so very much.

 

Oh and DAT LOBBY!

FIrst off, yes it is pre-alpha and I am fully aware of this.

 

  1. Player movement seemed slow and awkward. Could just be a look speed setting?
  2. Gun sounds did not sound right.
  3. It looks/seems a lot like Socom 2 in the lobby and HUD.
  4. I liked the mix in the lighting
  5. I didn't like the camera movement when he was crouching/walking by the bush...reminded me of Socom 4 with the camera issues. (around the 58 second mark)
  6. The notifications on the top of the screen need to be more clear or signifcant color difference, they blend in to the background and make it hard to read.
  7. The prone dive looked good.

 

BUT it does look like they are close to the Socom 2 look.

 

I would like to see if they have any grenade animations as well as the animation for getting up out of prone.

Nothing is tuned yet. it's just the core game mechanicks and showing what can be done.  Even the animations are basic and crude.  I consider it a check list of potential and possable features for the overall look and feel.  David has already comented the Alpha will be all about testing and tuning till it feels and plays right.  Nothing is set in stone yet but the foundation has been layed.

This video had me screaming like a woman. OMFG IT HAS THE LOOK OF CONFRONTATION!!!!!!!! Welp, I guess I need to have a clean plate by the time this comes out in 2015.

"While we're being honest, might I suggest something.

Please put your trophy profile as private, otherwise I might have believed you own a PS4 (thanks for the fake pic though)."
