Welcome To The Hossin - PlanetSide 2 PS4

Sony brings forward PlanetSide 2 to the PlayStation 4 soon with over 80 new bases and the latest updates from the Windows PC version of the game currently available. Those who are involved in underground multiplayer games from the Warhawk community for example and Call of Duty PSN network have been taking interest in this title. This could be a game that, if done right, will attract and hold a decently sized captive audience. Take a look at the latest trailer for this game below. PlanetSide 2 on PC is developed / published by Sony Online Entertainment (SOE). The exact release date for the PlayStation 4 of the game is still not announced yet, but a target window is set for 2014.

JetGetters $35,341 Pledged Towards $50,000 Goal, Resembles Warhawk Flight And Just Cause 2 Hook Put Together

JetGetters RealGamerNewz

JetGetters is one of the more original and inspiring multiplayer games seen in a while and is currently up for funding on Kickstarter (link beneath the video). The creators say that they were inspired by the unintentional game of hopping out of a jet, shooting down an enemy, then getting back into the jet in Battlefield 4 as well as the grappling hook from Just Cause 2. However, what this game’s multiplayer experience has turned out to be so far represents a more put together concept that really should be given a chance. Take a look at the footage and animated GIF below of this work in progress game and if you find it interesting then consider sharing this article to your friends.

PS3 SERVERS SHUT DOWN: Gran Turismo 5, Resistance Series, SOCOM Series, And MAG

PS4 vs PS3

Sony is prematurely pulling the plug on Gran Turismo 5 as well as the Resistance series while arguably putting the dead dog to rest with both the SOCOM and MAG series. This is perhaps worst for MAG players as the title has no single player experience to speak of. Gran Turismo 5 and Resistance 3 are particularly surprising to see shut down this early in the game though and beg the question of gamers – when will Sony shut off Gran Turismo 6 if this is what they consider a decent life span for GT5’s online mode?

Time will tell, but luckily online isn’t as important for GT6 as it is for a first person shooter like Resistance. Players who never got to experience the arguably unique gameplay of Resistance 2’s online mode are completely out of luck if they don’t jump on it soon, and this action sets a precedent for even older titles like Warhawk which Dylan Jobe recently told us was safe – we’re not so sure after this (hopefully they green-light his vision for a Warhawk PS4 title. It would appear Sony doesn’t care about meeting the same standards as the PlayStation 2 era in terms of keeping online servers up for popular games.

January 28, 2014 is the Official Shut Down Date for these games. Sony has yet to comment how many other games are being shut off in 2014 and which / when.

Are Warhawk Servers In Danger? Dylan Jobe Says SONY Hasn’t Said So

Warhawk Best Multiplayer Game of All Time

In a casual conversation with a fellow Warhawkian over Twitter this evening @DylanJobe responded to our fears of Warhawk’s PlayStation 3 Dedicated Servers being shut down. For those of you that know me well you know that Warhawk is my favorite multiplayer game of all time. The topic came up as we were both discussing PlayStation 4 titles and our fond memories of the incredible Warhawk game.

Recently rumors had been circulating the PSN chat waves that Warhawk’s PS3 servers would be shut down “soon”. When asked by twitter user @keithelliott1 (known as AutoTranz to the PSN / Warhawk community) @DylanJobe replied from his official Twitter account with the following tweet:

Warhawk Dedicated Servers

Here are the PS3 Warhawk Dedicated Servers in all their glory.

Now if only the Warhawk community could get together and bring SONY to the realization of how amazing this title was, bring it back somehow for the next-gen, then I could die a happy man having seen nothing like it and nothing as good since I first began shooting stuff on DOOM.

MAG Servers Shutting Down Jan 2014: Just 4 Years After the Game Released

MAG Shutting servers down Just 4 Years After Release

Multiplayer Only they said, dedicated servers they said, 256 players they said, it’ll be awesome they said. They say a lot of things these days don’t they? Even though single player capable games like Demon Souls will continue having servers thanks to fan demand it appears multiplayer-only title MAG will have its servers shut off January 2014. This is only 4 years after the game’s original release date exclusively for Sony PlayStation 3 on January 2010.

The 256 player first-person shooter will never be played again once this happens, since the game is a squad-based tactical shooter set for multiplayer only gameplay. Anybody out there still buying the physical copies of the game will certainly feel foolish and robbed, take this as your only warning since it appears developers Zipper Interactive and publisher Sony Computer Entertainment America have no interest in shouting it from the rooftops.

No DRM, and no servers either… which for MAG means no functionality unfortunately. If this can happen to one of Sony’s largest first party investments, what is the fate of barely populated Killzone, Warhawk, and Resistance servers as time goes on? In other news, Socom: Confrontation servers will also be shut down. At least that game has an offline mode, and it’s pretty terrible anyways with nothing more than a cult following. Did we just say that out loud? Oops.

30 Days and 30 Nights: The Warhawk Rant

WileyCoyoteDaChamp

Thanks to Dylan Jobe (President of LightBox Interactive), and Sony,Warhawk got another boost giving all of us core players and people who just got on board a great reason to continue playing this awesome 3 year old game. Holding a 30day tournament 24/7 with official servers and not team or clan bases brackets made this crazy fun grueling environment come to life causing some good effects and of course even more bad ones. Leaving you the player with a true test of your $K!L and dedication while trying to land one of those top 50 spots even if not going for the prize but just the prestige of topping 50,000+entries.

Well after a full 30 calendar days of competition in this Warhawk tourney I felt the need to share my experience. When we started off on the quest to the great champion’s blade it was exciting everything seemed to be on point. Arch enemy clan members working together side by side to achieve the common goal I was in awe of the team work and the unselfish acts that were being displayed on the battlefield. Sadly as expected it didn’t last but a week or so till the true colors most of the self proclaimed best players in this great game started to become clear. This being primarily a “CTF” capture the flag tourney for most players seems to turn into more of a “TDM” or “ZNS” and all three modes are going on in this one game at the same time. Sounds insane doesn’t it, well it was. There were teams of people concentrating only on a few bases taking them back when the enemy moved on while others were just killing machines never stepping foot on the ground leaving the guys who are attempting to win the game for the team sitting ducks for even just one player to break through and stop the flag.

Well that’s all part of the game and it is expected to a certain degree. However some players seemed to be there only to disrupt the tournament game play and acquire negative points as a joke at the same time causing a multitude of problems for all involved. Here are a few of the scenarios that transpired, and I won’t be mentioning any names. You know who you are and it’s good enough for me that you get to read it. Some guys with teams of 2, 3,or even 4 people grabbing the flag, carrying it as far as possible, and tossing it to the one guy they were working for. The whole time this goes on they are also not helping the other carriers until they got taken out, making sure that he ended up scoring as much as possible. Also, same-team tactics included letting the carriers die then 15 planes swoop down and try to dig up the flag with no dignity or honor.

Then you have the guys who are on both teams working together for the common goal of cheating not even fighting just standing next to each other moving back and forth why even bother doesn’t look fun at all from the videos i have seen, dummies. Also another from the guys on both teams acting like they are playing for the team but just killing the flag carrier and not saving it so the clan member or friend trying to win the competition still has time to pick it up. I am not talking about the guys at the bottom of the list either. Then you’ve always got the loner guy who doesn’t matter whose team he is on he’s going to get his. By driving behind you with the jeep till you get out and ambient warfare you scoop the flag from your dead body and run it in. They also tend to stop the carriers vehicle long enough for the other team to kill him then repeat. Follow that up with a bunch off friends that just play for 3 or 4 hours call their buddy give him his password and so on makes it really tough to compete.

In the beginning the atmosphere was great but slowly it got to the point of constant swearing name calling with some people who should be setting an example for the rest to follow are doing the exact opposite and fueling the fire.

After all people are we not trying to preserve our favorite game and improve it welcoming new players and befriending the veterans not hating all downgrading the quality of play for everyone included. Sounds kind of foolish when you think about it yet it still exists and for some it’s the only reason they play (retarded). Anyway the folks over at Sony have assured that they are going over all the stats, videos, their own as well as submitted, with the feeling that its going to take at least a week to take out the trash. “Cheers”, unfortunately you know as well as I most will slip through the cracks being that there are so many of them. So this in mind I have a few ideas I think would limit the amount of cheating virtually making it impossible to bank so many unjust points and get rewarded while others work at it with good intentions and get swept aside.

To start I know it is way more work but only put the servers up in each time zone for X amount of hours limit the certain groups that thrive in empty servers with no competition or enemies for that matter. This will most certainly make the best players stand out with limited time to score points daily the servers will remain full for the duration of that time zone. Also, it will make said servers easier to patrol for the moderators which should be overhauled at this point anyhow. It’s a great idea but just isn’t working properly. 50,000 + people and only 50 get the championship blade and a shirt for home which is great. What about the other 49,950? Nothing. This will not bring out the most people, only the same people that you already have. Do the math. Something small, penny cost even, will double the roster along with strong advertisement in the right places. Don’t worry, I am talking about almost $0 cost. In the end, this game will begin to thrive again with all the new players ranking up telling their friends how great it is bringing a whole new group of sales for the lets say “Shh” new game in the works. Oh yeah!

In conclusion the various forms of cheating coupled with the rude and ignorant comments affected the game play for the entire community .Some small changes could fix many headaches closing the gap on those who choose to take the low road improving the level of play reviving the disappointed players ushering in a whole new era.

All in all the tournament was a good could have been great with lets just say a little more…
