The excuses aren't adding up

8-21-2010 06:02 AM

They can program things like guns that fire with recoil and a certain fire rate but coding a simple opening and closing of a door is "too hard" or "complicated" to do. They can make cover and objects that that are destructible but coding in a jump to climb which is a very basic platforming feature seen in many games? How about the simple act of a soldier leaning his body left or right ?

If coding some of these very simplistic things is complicated then I would assume when you pop in the game you would be seeing a blank black screen because theres no way they could code anything in this game if opening and closing a door is beyond their reach.

I hear all these commercials about how the PS 3 is so advanced and "it only does everything" and yet according to Zipper its just far to difficult to code in some very basic parts of Socom gameplay. We have supposedly this advanced physics system but the act of having an opening and closing door is just way out of this systems league?

Personally I think its just more of the stripped and watered down Socom we got from CON due to a lazy developer that just wants to get a very basic game on the shelves that has no attention to detail. I'm not buying any of this "It can't be done on the PS 3" nonsense. I think Seth is just doing his usual tech talk stuff and thinks we are dumb enough to buy the idea that coding in a door that opens and closes in a video game takes a tremendous amount of expertise. Sort of like how he told us the old classic view was impossible in CON because of the 16:9 ratio (though he came clean in this podcast and admitted it was about the character looking to small on the screen and they wanted us to have a bigger character to look at,which is stupid and more obstructive to our view then the smaller centered character despite his claim that OTS is a less obstructed view).

Seth simply don't want to make a great Socom with tons of detail like the past and so he's going his usual route of blowing smoke up our butt to get us to buy this lazy effort anyways. We shouldn't be rewarding them for not giving a crap about us. We should all quit this series and make them rely completely on this broader market they desperately been seeking at our huge expense. If we don't buy it and the casual market ignores it as well,then and only then will Zipper and Sony learn the error of their ways. Reward them and buy this game and we will be replaying this same change for the broader market theme for the next iteration.

I'm not usually the type of guy who is too lazy to read a few paragraphs, but all of Tombstone's posts make me sound like that lol.

My gripe with this is that... yes they removed some features but perhaps for the better... we just don't know. They have said they removed these features because they found better ways to accomplish what they did. We will see... they can't go into detail what they have added yet but they can say what they don't have. Is it aggravating, absolutely but I still reserve judgement.

I don't know, I can't see how getting rid of long time core values can be a better thing. If it was never broke why try and fix it.

See I think we have seen these features before. What TPV game have you played that isn't OTS? We've tried OTS in other games. Its not like its an all new never been done before feature.

The cover system that's in every game nowadays to and it seems to always suck. I hate pressing a button to take cover. Cover systems get me killed more than they help.


Its not like Zipper is doing anything new to the industry in S4. Its feature we've all tried before and it's features I hate.

Opening and closing doors along with shooting out lights and it affecting the lighting in a room accurately should be done on ps2 with no prob.maybe these lazy ass devs should be making the game for ps2 since our expensive ps3s suck so bad

Zipper has removed so much of the core gameplay I don't see how anything we do will make me feel like I am playing Socom. I am really trying to bite my tongue and wait for Multi Player, but you can't assume Socom 4 will play like Socom's back in the day.

I get frustrated thinking about it but I still have a small hope (like a kids who knows santa isn't real but wants to think he is anyway) that mp will be a completely different game with many different modes to please everyone.coop missions.coop campaign. Gay hr respawn andnon respawn. Non hr respawn and non respawn.old school maps.new maps.dlc coming out with old maps that have been graphically updated.ahhhh.one can always have dreams I guess

i dont remember zipper sayingg they couldnt make doors open and close and they didnt say it was too hard eather. this is just a classic TOMB posting where he used selective hearing in this perticular podcast.

what i got from it was yes they can make doors open and close but there was a difficulty aspect brought into play because of the week focal points it applyed into the game. ie. glitches that could be tied into the door. no this isnt excact words from seth but its what i added up.

i think a huge problom with the community these days is noody does any checking of facts they see it typed up and tend to beleive it.

go listen to the podcast it was the latest seth luisi one and see what you get from what he says....im sure it wont be what TOMB got

Speaking of Tomb, I haven't seen him on the forums in awhile ? I agree Tomb does get one tracked minded sometimes, but he does try and stick to his guns, I give him that.

He hasn't posted in a while, but I have seen him logged in quite often. Maybe he got tired of me.

LOL, Yeah maybe he is taking a break from everyone, and you did give him a run for his money, he probably has no hair left on his head. Very Happy

I have a question for ya DITCH, since you use your phone often to post, does the new banner have a different effect on the way the forum looks now on your phone. I have an HTC from Verizon and it changed a little bit, but not enough to were it doesn't line up ?
