GIJOE Special OPS Ninja Update Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow

G.I. JOE: SPECIAL OPS is the first-ever online social game based on the iconic G.I. JOE brand. In this arena-based combat title, players can join either the G.I. JOE team or the villainous COBRA organization, accessing a huge catalogue of iconic heroes and villains along with spectacular weapons and vehicles. An epic battle will rage in the game's arenas as iconic commandos and their minions struggling for control and to claim victory for their side.

G.I. JOE: SPECIAL OPS will be released under the Syfy Games banner and debut in June on Facebook and Syfy.com.

Declassified Bio

File Name: Tomisaburo "Thomas" S. Arashikage

Primary Specialty: Assassination

Secondary Specialties: Archery; Intelligence

Birthplace: San Francisco, California

STORM SHADOW's heart does not know true evil, but the sins of pride and vengeance will forever haunt him. His association with COBRA, an alliance begun with just intentions, has stained his honor beyond recovery. Poisoned by COBRA ideology and subjected to brutal mind control techniques, the good man who was once Tomisaburo has been almost completely obscured by villainy. STORM SHADOW and SNAKE EYES both served in an overseas patrol unit. The two formed a close friendship during service, earning SNAKE EYES his invitation to study with the Arashikage in Japan. Despite the bond that once existed between them, circumstance produced an irreparable rift, changing the two former friends into bitter enemies. STORM SHADOW's allegiance to COBRA is as unwavering as SNAKE EYES' allegiance is to G.I.JOE.

Cloud Strife:
Wolverine?! Is it a new character? I don't see anything talking about Wolverine.

*EDIT - Haha... Never mind. I realized that there is a vehicle section which makes MUCH more sense.
ndb:
Really? Dr. Mindbender still has his 80s design? Its 2012 people.

Everything old is new again.
fireflyguy:
I'm pretty excited to play this. Looks like we have about a month left to wait.
Lifeline_MD:
LIFELINE!!!

Looking like a bad-ass as well. I'm happy he's getting some love lately.

Definitely playing this game now.

Wonder how Duke got wounded THIS time?
orezona:
Some cool hints throughout the details of each item/character as to what other characters there will be...

Quote:
Conceived during SERPENTOR's reign of COBRA, the STUN incorporates a number of surprising features in its design.
Quote:
COBRA COMMANDER has nicknamed him "the Rembrandt of plastic explosives," but unlike famed artists, FIREFLY does not sign his work.
Quote:
Upon returning to the United Sates, she studied at Bryn Mawr and spent time serving in the CIA before being brought into the G.I. JOE team by her instructor, SNAKE EYES.
I think it's also pretty obvious with Ripper being in there a few other Dreadnoks will show up, certainly Zartan.

This is shaping up to be pretty cool. The nods to ARAH styling is enough for me to stay interested.
Tanksmasher:
I wish they would give more details on the game itself.
garoquel:
Did anyone notice that this is actually Tiger Force Roadblock, and might figures might be coming down the road sometime next year
WVMojo:
I am actually pretty excited about this game...glad they did something like this instead of another movie based game that would most likely suck balls.

same
so is this a FB game, a shooter or a fps games anyone know yet
this game 3d renders reminds me of half life or team fortress









luigi:
what no response
Laser Viper:
This is cool, but personally Serpentor needs to be dropped from this game or come in at a later date.
Trigue:
I like how they have so much of the old school stuff in the game. Gives me some hope we might see some more old school stuff reissued.
Jmacq1:
Some of the designs are straight out of the IDW comics, too.
Adamantite:
I like where this is going. I signed up for the beta on the syfygames website.
GI Guppy the third:
So why is there a photo of Krake?
lowlight27:
Why is Lady Jaye's butt on her front? Is her O-ring twisted?
NeoDragonKnight:
I really like the art, anyone know who does the art? Id love a commission.
Fox:
Quote:
The first COBRA soldiers were disaffected Americans, often ex-military or unemployed workers with few options, who were trained in paramilitary compounds.
I find this interesting to note. It's like they're 99% and the Joe are killing their less fortunate neighbors and former brothers in arms for the 1%.

We need to form the Cobra Command Super PAC.
DESTRO:
The game is now up and running but it looks like the server is already down.
Cloud Strife:
Good grief... I got excited for nothing.

Ditto
X-factorz:
Yeah, me too. Good thing for me though as I have never played games on my PC and from the start up screen had no idea what to do. I right clicked to move SE and once he moved the server crashed. At first I thought I did something wrong. lol

Flints been at it again.
DESTRO:
The game is back up and running. It reminds me of Contra so far. Looks like survival mode works well.
ucsf:
The EU server is working like charm.

But still kinda funny that the multiplayer option is disabled. I'm a great fan of League of Legends and hope this will bring us some cool moments too.
Mista2x:
Boooo!!! Facebook only? WTF?
obiwanie:
Simple game concept but very addictive. Love it already.
theprocess:
Haven't been able to download the installer. So bored at work...
nickvree:
Survival mode is working pretty well for me. Lifeline, Lowlight, Storm Shadow, and Firefly are available for 'free' (I also somehow played as Snake Eyes when I first loaded the game... but couldn't after)

Firefly seems to be the best at Survival Mode (at least for me) because he has an AoE (Grenade) ability that works well. Lifeline basically sucks for survival; he can heal himself, but only has a single offensive ability.
IIIzoeIII:
this.......is.......painful.......to.....play
ouch.
Adamantite:
Wanted to give it a try but it's asking for permission to post stuff to my fb feed. What does it post?
The Commander:
played it...only person i've made it thru survival mode with is SE

I think the first mission is only a tutorial game (SE is one of the most expensive characters). I personally play with SS, because of his skills. Firefly is another great option. The others are less offensive characters, so the plus side will only surface on the 2vs2 mode (assassin, buffer).

It's still hard to say much, I'm at level 2 but there are plenty items I just can't reach because of the early dies. With SS I buy attack items, that help last a little longer.

On fb it will post recent activities and things you liked. That's why I have a fake account.

Just uncheck the box or hit the skip button and it shouldn't post to your FB.
X-factorz:
Just played the 2vs2 mode and it was ok. I don't understand why a game company can't just take these characters and make a good console game with them.
Robowang:
So...I click on the little robots, and Snake Eyes runs toward them and they shoot back and forth until the robot explodes. More robots come. I guess I'm protecting the Terror Drome? Okay. This isn't fun. At least, I dunno, let me use the arrow keys to walk around. I don't get it.
X-factorz:
Yeah, it's pretty lame unfortunately. I've been playing it off and on for a few hours now in the 2 vs 2 game whenever I can actually get in and I can't say it gets much better. I'm almost at a rank of 4 and I still can't add much as far as accessories go. Apparently they want you to link your paypal or cc to your account as well so that you can "buy platinum" which helps you unlock other characters. I hope this gets better in the near future!

How long does it get to play a 2vs2? I'm trying to do that but can't find any match...

It depends, I was literally walking away from my computer and listening for when the music changed to let me know a match had been found. There were probably 8 or 9 of us that were consistently playing throughout the night (not all at the same time obviously). Sometimes 5 minutes and sometimes 30...
ucsf:
Thanks, well I managed to play this mode, but the chances are slim. Or when it happens the server decides to go offline.

I hope this will change in the near future.
pyro678:
i dont mind it. havent played 2 vs 2 since it takes forever but everyone has to keep in mind its a beta and not some farmville crap. the detail is great in the character you choose and its fun to blow up lil robots. but once all the glitches and bugs are fixed the game will run smooth and im sure will have more options.
JustinX:
I played for the first week when it went live but it took way too long to get the platinum to get new characters. I played the same level with all the characters that I have available and Storm Shadow is slightly better than the rest. Never found a match for 2 player. Playing the same screen over and over made me lose interest and I haven't played since that first week. I was really hoping it would be fun, but it's not. Even less fun than the GI Joe xbox game which is the worst game I ever played until now.

There are some new characters available now if you want to check them out.
