SOCOM 4 Reviews Go Live – It’s Looking Like A Fail

by Ernice Gilbert on April 12th, 2011, under Hot, News, PS3, Sony

SOCOM 4 will release in the U.S. on April 19th, and reviews for the game have started showing up on gaming’s web. Does it standout, or is the Zipper TPS a mediocre game at best?

According to most of the reviews coming in, bar a few positive ones, SOCOM 4 is not what you’re looking for.

Said Eurogamer: “On the plus side, the visuals are reasonably impressive: the foliage is redolent of Far Cry 2, and film buffs will recognise the Kubrickian lighting in the missions set in the so-called ‘magic hour’ before dusk. The animations are decent, the scenery is pleasant, and there’s a mildly bombastic score from the Skywalker Symphony Orchestra.

Special Forces is not without its moments of drama and excitement, but ultimately there is an overriding sense that you are simply going through the motions – Move or no Move.”

Gratitude: A Big Thank You To Game Developers, We Appreciate You

by Ernice Gilbert on May 21st, 2010, under Article, industry news

Gamers are a demanding crowd. Year after year developers work hard, harder than most other forms of entertainment to bring us what we want. For some reason we the gamers pay no mind to what goes on behind the scenes; all we’re interesting in is everything, and I mean everything being perfect. That’s a tall order considering how much effort, research, brainstorming and the likes that goes into making a great game.

But when last did we pause for a moment and really think about how much we take these developers for granted? And the thing is they never complain. Well I believe there’s a time for everything under the sun; and today I ask you to join me in saluting your favorite development team.

Do it after the read in the comments section but right now, we honor them:
