    Just wanted to post community night from like 4 years ago. Sikkamore was a cool, funny regular that used to record. I wanted to post cause I'm always surprised when talking to Drum last night that there were many Socom fans that played this briefly and then never again.

    It wasn't perfect for sure. A little clunky on the controls and hit detection sub par but it was still hella fun. The maps were gorgeous and textured beautifully. Look at how nice crossroads looked!

    that run/sprint button was so unnecessary on constipation. I never once played a PS2 socom and thought "hey you know what they need to add on the new socom? a sprint button!"

    Good one, man. Ya know, it's funny. I played SO:Con for maybe two hours early in its lifespan and, as I did with S3 and CA, I ultimately rejected it. But seeing game footage of TRS buds and old clan-mates over the years has given me a sense of appreciation and, dare I say, nostalgia. (Luke's "Farewell Confrontation" always comes to mind.) FWIW, I'll probably always be torn. While my pragmatic brain assures that I made the right choice, my sentimental heart regrets not taking the plunge. BTW: Before reading your post, I thought you might be referring to S2 Fridays because the TRS presence on Discord and Xlink has gotten smaller and smaller in recent weeks. :p:(

    Sure, the game itself was ass. And although it got a little less-awful over time, the only thing that gave me second thoughts about rejecting the game was nostalgia. If I'd had an extra $500+ to blow back then, I probably would've for the chance to play again with my old clan mates and friends.

    It was flat out unplayable for me the first 9 months after release,
    Then I could play it after dusting it off and updating it.
    I was pleasantly surprised to find the sound didn't cut out
    and freeze my PS3 repeatedly
    And pause the game every time someone joined or left the game, still crap lean feature and no jump climb but some new maps and a playable game with great graphics

    Nice to see the old vids. As most have done, I quit Con for a while after the messed up release and then the changes. The updates came too late for most and I lost most of the clan I was in. Then the last few months I got back on and played the TRS community nights with everyone. It was a ton of fun and I miss those nights.
