    Well guys, I bit the bullet and sold my copy of SOCOM. I enjoyed playing with you all but my gaming time is currently devoted to other pursuits and what with all the premier Gamecube titles coming out soon, frankly I need the money. Like I said, I did enjoy playing with you all, and I will be getting an xbox at some point in the future so I'll be rejoining you there. The Ps2 online experience just was too frustrating for me. Oh well I'll always remember the famous "everyone but Dave gets disconnected" [​IMG] I've still got my NA and TMB:O but after searching around on ebay, those are going for like 50 or 60 bucks. Frankly, I'm considering selling it as well as the only online games that interest me for the ps2 won't be released for quite some time(Gran Turismo 4 and Ace Combat 5 if they do indeed end up with online components). Plus, perhaps this way I can get that xbox sooner [​IMG]

    Nice playing with you Dave, enjoy your Prime... which I assume you're referring too. We'll see you online again, hopefully soon, with Ghost Recon, Mech Assault, or Unreal... I can't wait to get them all tomorrow!!

    As for SOCOM, I'm keeping it for awhile, so if anyone is still playing, let the board know, I'm sure we'll find some willing targets!

    It seems that alot of bashing is happening, yes we know that the servers are crashing, but alot more people are playing. As usual we are burning ourselves out for each game. I am sure all these people running to xbox bashed that system back in the day. As the past tells us, we will rush to play xbox live and burn out on those games also, its the nature of the beast. We still have to wait till xbox goes live to see how well the servers hold up, and also see how new ps2 online games have their servers built. It is still in its infancy.

    Okay...

    We are officially in the round of 32.
    Good job everyone!

    The clan we are facing next is Dark Eagle Resistance.
    I have never heard of them.
    I am trying to find out what I can,though.

    Usual stuff, I'll try to setup a weekend match.
    Let's keep it going & reach the "Sweet 16!"

    Just wanted to let you guys know I followed in Dave's footsteps and am selling SOCOM. I've just heard too many good things about Mechassault to not buy it and money is an issue, so selling SOCOM will allow me to buy it.

    I had a lot of great times with you guys on the game, and even though server probs made for crappy experiences at the end, I don't fault the game for it, or even Sony.

    I think Xbox Live will be better because it is pay to play and the $50 goes toward better servers and not just games. That might not be right, but hopefully it is.

    I hope all of you guys can migrate toward XBL in the future. I would strongly consider SOCOM 2 if they can clear up the server problem. I think I'll hold onto my PS2 NA for now.

    I'm highly considering getting rid of SOCOM and my PS2 NA when we get out of the tournament. There is just nothing coming out that interest me. Everything I read about Network Biohazard has me thinking I won't buy it, no Voice Chat, no sale.

    I'm surprised so many of you are jumping ship.

    I played Ghost Recon today...it's not bad but i think Socom is much better.

    PLus, Ghost Recon isn't even 16:9 and has much more online slowdown than i've seen on socom.

    Sean,

    Out of 10+ hours of GR I have been kicked out 0 times. With in 30 minutes of SOCOM I will pretty much always get booted 1 or 2 times. One night in a
