Yes this is my pal razor dak, the guy who got me streaming games, he is beta testing the confrontation servers with the pc emulation! If this improves and gets fixed up, fixes the audio glitches and pop ins, wow, it will run more smoothly and be better. I will play the hell out of this on pc… the ps3 version has a lot of frame rate issues i hope the pc can fix 🙂
Why? Because on youtube the videos look worse, and twitch is for gaming, my fans on youtube want music stuff instead, and i cant get viewership on youtube no matter what i try even when i stream all day.. So giving twitch a try again… and wow the streams look better.
COD and WARZONE has weened me off of Socom Confrontation, Socom 2, Socom Combined assault. I just have 0 fun playing socom now. I loved confrontation, but after the ranking update the game runs worse, bad framerates. After grinding multiplayer on cold war to unlock weapons for warzone, i started to realize that hard core search and destroy is socom enough for me when i want that kind of game. Also team death match is something I really love. I am good at it. I am usually at the top of the board when i play it. Its a lot more fun, and it plays with a high frame rate, with way better graphics, and now with low fan noise(ps4 pro) and in 4k with raytracing on the ps5, which i love. Zippy fast aiming too. Responsive, unlike socom when the frame rate drops The old ps2 socom games are so dated and bad that i cannot stand them i tried so hard to like them, and i just do not see what people like about socom 2 or any of the ps2 titles, the single player games are good, but multiplayer is bah, bad hit detection, slow stiff unsmooth controls. Uhg, on my pc an i9 rx 580 it runs bad. even at default settings.
I hope now there is no new socom game. After playing with the die hard socom people for the last 4 months, i know they do not want it. They want s2 hd, or conf on ps5. I just hope there is a tactical shooter from sony that is good and fun. Thats enough for me, something like caliber, or a r6 siege. I still play r6 too and on ps5 it is excellent.
The ps3 is kind of boring, if you could play confrontation with a pc emulator and run in higher frame rate, that game would rock.
Finally got a ps5, I didnt think i wanted one but i was finally able to get one so i did. This games was one of the reasons why. I still own tons of ps4 games and they all run even better on the ps5. And i really want to play the next god of WAR.. Plus i still play COD and R6 and they run amazing on the ps5. PC and ps5 will be my gaming path forward. Now if only I can find a video card are the msrp price, i was thinking an AMD rx 6800..
So far i love the ps5. Everything runs great on it. Dual Sense is the best hardware controller ever, i especially notice in on cold war. Now i need to sell more records to pay help pay for the $70 games yikes.
Caliber is free and on Windows 10. Mouse and Keyboard only. Warning, This is an update. I have since stopped playing Caliber because the North American Servers are dead, and that is the only game as an american you can get a low enough ping to compete without being shot behind walls. So the only games you can play are against Russians on Russian servers, who have been playing the game for almost 2 years. Its not pretty.
Caliber is like Siege and Confrontation had a baby. It has tight gunplay like r6, and 3rd person like socom 4, but plays more like Confrontation. Some say old ghost recon but the game modes are more like Socom. Is this a replacement for socom? NO but it is scratching my itch for a new ps5 Socom game.
One bad thing is that you have to play story missions until you are level 4 to see the socom like experience. So do not give up until you play to level 4, because that is when the real game begins. The other bad thing is if you don’t play in russian servers, you might have to wait a long time to get into a match but if you can get a team of 4 together, you can zoom fast into matches on the north american servers. Just not super late at night.
There are character classes, but you do not need them to win like many complainers claim, If you level up the stock characters, you can wreck anyone if you are good and play as a team.
What i love about the game, is the characters, and the strategy of the game, you have to manage your stamina because it is tied to your super abilities, and your ability to run. Assault class has most stamina, then support, then sniper, then medic. You have to reload after rounds at reload stations that are timed but are plenty around each map. Unlocking characters by grinding can take a long time.
The pay system is expensive. But i think that is because it is in the beta and this is a free game and they have to fund it some how, and not a lot of people are playing it yet, and they are not on a huge distributor who runs ads for them. So right now this is a word of mouth game. I do not blame them at all for how expensive coins are. I hope they do make things cheaper in the future though.
I can play this game over and over just like i did with Socom and R6 siege. The aiming is tight, I have a i9 9900k with a radeon rx 580, 16gb system ram and m2 drive. This game in 1080p on my system is getting about 100 frames a second. That is with my old video card too which is comparable to a rtx 1060.
You must play as a team and use coms, we usually rock Discord chat with our teams. This helps a lot, but you can talk in game with the G button if you have a headset. I play mostly as Medic. As i do in Battle field 4. Or Doc and finka in r6. I love tactile shooters and Caliber just might be the best playing Strategic Shooter I have ever played. I think it is more fun than Siege and Socom. Maybe because it is new. But really this is it! The Game Mechanics are tight and spot on.
I give it a 8 out of 10 for Russians, and 5 out of 10 For Americans.. I will update my score once the game is released. I just hope they make items in the game Cheaper.

I like this guy, its how i am finding a lot of old games for cheap to play instead of spending $70 on new ps5 games. I missed so many games on ps3 and ps2, and ps1 that i think i can spend an eternity with these 3 machines and still not play everything cool.
After using the Series S, I was very let down. I am sure i would really like the power of the ps5, but…….
So in Microsoft buying Bethesda, is that really going to help xbox? I hated game pass, its like 180 a year, for online play and a bunch of games i would never play or buy for the most part. I only liked a few of the games on game pass that i tried. Bathesda, FALLOUT 76 IS the worst fallout ever. That game is a POS. And that is just my opinion, not a fact. I love fallout. But that is not Fallout. And what else, elder scrolls? yeah never played that on a console any way. Doom? meh. Having an xbox is like having a PC with a few extra games. So honestly because i have a PC. Xbox is just not appealing.
The ps5, Well, the interface sucks. The ui is lame, i still to this day prefer the ps3 interface. I loved the speed of the ps4 interface, but the ps3 allowed you to stream stuff from your pc, and was easier to find your games. Now this new PS5 interface the home button is all messed up and it has all these bugs where you can brick the ps5 usb hard drives. Cant copy ps5 games to usb hd, no expansion is activated, so no 2nd ssd to improve the space from 625gb to 1625gb. And you cannot find one. Plus its very big. I tried to get one, but gave up after a while and just started messing with the ps2 and ps3. Much happier.
In the end though, its always sony because of their 1st party, God of War, Uncharted, Last of us, And their other 1st party exclusives. Sony makes very good single player games, Microsoft does not, and Bethesda has to prove itself again after fallout 76.
I am pissed that there was no Socom for ps5 launch. Piss there was no socom for PS4, the should of did HD confrontation and socom 4 at least. That would not of been hard.
Eventually when i can walk into a store and just buy a ps5, i will, playing ps4 games at 60 fps will be worth it eventually.
Yup, The dog and I are playing some Socom 2, on the ps2 i got cheap. When i had the series S, their online store did not have many xbox, or 360 games. Just this and that and nothing i remembered that i really liked other than fallout and dead space. Lucked out and got a ps3 and now that confrontation is back online WOW. And soon i will play Socom 2 online as well. Plus I can play any ps1, ps2, or ps3 game, digital, or physical copy with my ps4, ps3, and ps2. My tv upscales component 480i and other modes that the ps2 has and it looks great on this tv. Sucks that i could not get a ps5 and play all the games with emulation. Sucks that the Series S has a limited catalog for the S.
PS4, Switch, PS3, PS2.
Very happy now. I tried the emulators on the pc. For some reason i did not care for it. I prefer playing the real hardware. The only way i will buy a ps5 now, is if there is a socom. Or god of war. We shall see, honestly, i want the ps5 slim, not that huge weird console.
I was so excited when the box came. Finally a ps2 again, I gave my last ps2 to Todd Loomis years ago when we were working on lust for blood, i think he gave it to his nephews. I have the slim now. I also bought a HD retrovision Component cable for the ps2. And it looks amazing through it, and that cable is better than most of the 3rd party ones.
Over all i am very happy. Now, once Diana gets here, we can play together like we used to. God i miss her. 🙁
WTF. Seriously. Socom fans were unhappy because socom 4 is not socom. The mechanics were all wrong, bobblehead characters and head shots all over the place, the zoomed in camera and huge characters are what ruined it more than the respawn shit. What about COD? They did that right over and over. The mechanics. If you make a game and change the mechanics, then there is a prb. Socom 2 and Confrontation are similar, cept hit detection is more realistic on Confrontation. The hate for Confrontation was because of the bugs when it launched. It was not stable for 3 months, until they patched it. This is where most of the hate came from. After it ran good, a lot of people played it all the time, then coldfront dlc breathed new life into it, but because they had to patch it so many times it got in the way of the planned dlc. Also because it didn’t sell as big as socom 2, sony moved on. If anything Sony killed socom by expecting it to compete with Call of Duty.
I hope they do a socom title that is like confrontation, and something new, but plays great. r6 Siege proves that tactical shooters are still popular enough. r6 Siege sold 10 million, and has had 70 million players online.
The other part of the fail: Did you ever see a Confrontation AD on tv? I saw socom 1 and 2 ads on TV, but never confrontation. Because sony did not market Confrontation as well as socom 1 and 2, that is why it did so poorly.
The Socom name means the hardcore fans will come out to try it, but you have to make them happy first, because their praise is what will fuel the spread of it. Jaffe is wrong, he blew it with Twisted metal on ps3, and thinks he knows what we the fans want or what we think. Dead wrong.
Also in some of the YouTube videos I have seen, they say the it is all nostalgia. And that the old Socom is out of date. Now that confrontation is back up, let me tell you, its not nostalgia, It plays better than most modern games. It also looks better than a lot of the modern games to me. Dead wrong. Confrontation is amazing still. I wish they had done an HD version with new maps on ps4. But nope….
I just hope the people at Sony give us Socom fans something new. Don’t listen to the naysayers Sony.
This was the only reason I did not buy a ps5 at launch, i had one in my cart minutes after than Sony press thing in November, and did not pull the trigger because no Socom, and also i thought Sony would sell me one direct like their email promised me, which was all BS. Here is some of the rumors about it, i want it to be true, but there is nothing official. I only wish there was some kind of Official announcement of SOCOM, because then for sure i would buy a ps5. I am still pretty pissed that Hhour never came to ps4, and there was no socom on ps4, all they needed to do is confrontation HD with some new maps on ps4 and that would of been amazing, but no. They shut down all the servers. and Hhour is in LALA Land.
If we get a new socom and it plays as well as confrontation, i will be very happy. They should hit me up to write some music for it.. Damn it!
In the middle of a pandemic, they have the nerve to charge $70. The truth is games should cost no more than $49 in my eyes. Especially with the economy in the trash thanks to a pandemic. Games already Nickle and Dime inside the games with transactions.
Instead of buying the PS5, i got a ps3, and buy games for about 5 bucks. I missed a lot of games on the ps3, now i can go back and play 720p games for cheap that are really good. Down the line if i get a ps5, i will only buy games used for 30 or less, or digital when the sales hit 30 or less. The ps5 and Xbox Series X/S should of been delayed until the middle of next year. Why? There are no games and everything is delayed because of the pandemic. Cyberpunk should of only been ps4 pro, xbox one X and above or delayed until bugs were gone. People rushed to make a buck on the slumping economy, and it is just damn greedy. Shame on them.
One thing I can say about XBOX, they keep their franchise games alive. SONY KILLS THEM. SOCOM, KILLZONE, JOEL, MAG, HOME, Twisted Metal, and many more. This is a shame, sure the ps4 killzone game did kinda suck, but killzone 2 and 3 are AMAZING!!!! These are the games that made me buy a ps3 over an xbox 360 years ago, and games i played with my friends for months and months. Look at the visuals, even though its 720p the art style and lighting is just so amazing… What do you think?
I do not have a ps5 “thank you scalpers” Refuse to spend 800 to 1500 for a ps5. And honestly, as buggy as the ps5 is with no high speed ssd expansion, I kind of don’t care. And most of all the games they told us were ps5 games when it launched are now Ps4 games. Only Ratchet and Klank and Returnal seem to be true ps5 games. Demon souls is a meh. Played it. There is no socom announced yet either 🙁 Still all that said, I would buy this game. Which is more than i can say for the xbox series S games. There is nothing there to buy yet. LOL.
The ps3 to me was so much more than any other game console. The ps4 pales, the ps2 pales. The ps3 i had the best times with good friends playing so many different kinds of games, socom, shooters, tons of coop games on the ps3, saints row, army of two and many more. But playstation home was amazing. I really wish they would of continued it on the ps4, but like with everything cool on the ps3, sony killed it. They killed the servers for MAG, Socom confrontation, Socom 4, and many other great games. Snake is bringing it back slowly thank goodness, but seriously. Sony really dropped the ball, ps4 has no socom, WTF. ps5 still has no SOCOM. WTF. Playstation home is coming back thanks to snake as well.https://www.psone.online/ CLICK HERE.
Ok I played Cyberpunk 2077 first on my ps4 pro and beat the game twice. Then i wanted a ps5 so bad that i ended up buying an xbox series S because it was the only thing i could get my hands on. So i played on the series S as well. So, the series S ran the game much better, less frame rate drops. Also on ps4 pro to get a decent frame rate I had to turn off almost all the graphics settings that it allows you to. Still after I put an ssd in my ps4 pro, i still had to turn down graphics settings but the texture pop in problems vanished, i noticed this a lot on my samurai build, i would run in super fast and start slashing and the models would look like ps1 gta graphics.
I love Cyberpunk 2077 despite all the bugs in the game. I love net hacking, and the gun play. I like the story and the multi endings. If you have stadia, that is a great way to play this, on ps5, xbox series x/s and pr4 pro with ssd, the game is playable. The game does have bugs, although they patched a lot of them now. This is a must play. I loved the music in the game as well. Wish I could of written a track for it.. bah.
I love open world games. This game has very cool side missions, and random missions. This game is like super industrial land.
Yes, i sold my xbox series s because i didn’t feel like playing the same games i had on my ps4 and losing all my progress, it was really fast and great, but ps4 exclusives i will miss too much. No luck on getting a ps5 either. So I decided to upgrade my PS4 PRO, because it has sata 3 in it, and will actually take advantage of an ssd. I noticed about 2x speed in load times on it now with my 870 evo 1tb. Its not fast like a ps5, but half the speed of loading of the xbox series S. It is a big improvement especially on cyberpunk 2077 on ps4 pro. Loads in textures really fast vs standard hd where it can have a delay making the game look like a ps1. I also but a 256 gb ssd in my ps3 slim, and it loads in gta 4 a lot faster now as well, file installs from the psn store are 2 times faster, doesnt speed up the disc games to much though, i do have a lot of games purchased for ps3 on the psn store digitally so i did get an improvement.
I really think if you have an old ssd laying around that is a decent size, install it into your ps4, all you need to do is download the update os thing from sony onto a usb stick, and if you want you can back up and restore if you have an external hard drive that is big enough for your content on your current ps4. Same thing goes for ps3. SSD on ps3 and ps4 pro is pretty cool, not the end all be all, but it does stream textures into games faster off the hd now for sure..
So yes I have been able to play a lot, even teamed up with krztov former live vac member to play a few rounds. This was one of my favorite ps3 games, and this guy snake brought back the severs that sony had shut down many years ago making socom confrontation obsolete. Luckily I had access to a ps3 and still had my original socom confrontation box because no one would buy the game off me, no stores that is, so i had it laying around.
All you have to do is have the game, and if you bought coldfront expansion pack, you can download that from the psn store on your ps3, just search for it in the downloads section. Then you have to edit the dns manually to snake’s server. Here are the instructions: https://www.psone.online/getting-started CLICK HERE. Hope to see you on there!
