    This is totally off subject but anyone notice that Sony’s no longer using Crackle as their video delivery method? Looks like Viddler is the new site.

    Crackle’s gone from YouTube wannabe to a Hulu wannabe offering TV shows (didn’t notice any movies). It’s been so long I’ve forgotten what the name was before (something random having nothing to do with videos) but it’s amazing what can happen when you’re bought out by Sony (whether you decipher that as good or bad is up to you).

    Anyway, the footage looks okay. Not groundbreaking or anything but looks pretty good. Kind of reminds of how Warhawk looked to me. Not great but fun to play. Not insane fun like CoD4 but fun all the same.

    Personally I find COD repetitive and boring. SOCOM is a tactical shooter not a respawn run and gun sort of game. The gameplay isnt groundbreaking in graphics as its a downloadable game, but SOCOM is groundbreaking in clan setups, online community, and the actual gameplay. Very few games are round based and not respawn.

    And its not necessarily groundbreaking since that has been the Socom formula since day one, but to me Socom hands down trumps all other shooters out there. No question about it.

    You’ve never been in a Free4All room then eric lol, cause socom turns exactly into a respawn run and gun, more chaotic than COD4.

    Sure Socom has a respawn mode, but 95% of the Socom community doesnt play it. So while you can play respawn, thats really a small mode that people just use to mess around in.
