I recently bought Defiance on GMG for $33. Seriously good price, go get it. Anyway, I just started playing this morning until server update right now. I really don't understand all the hate against the game. This is seriously a very good enjoyable game. I'm sure as with ANY themepark, it will run out of content and possibly fast. However, they are saying there will be some serious DLC action coming. But other than that, why hate? To me it is a great mix between Borderlands and Gears of War in an MMO.
Yes, it is a console/PC game and so the social aspect is significantly diminished from other PC-Only MMOs. Most people you try to chat to, don't chat back (either they are dills or on an XBOX or PS3). But it is clearly a different kind of game, one that I am so far enjoying emensly. I think most people's problem is they went into it with an expectation in mind instead of going into to have some serious fun! Recognize what it is. It's not a competitor with Call of Duty, nor with World of Warcraft. It is really a fairly unique game and so far a good bit of emphasis on exploration. I for one am having a great time cruisin in my roller finding little enemy camps and trackin down those side-missions. Plus with the T.V. show, they really hit my lore bone. Not only can you get into the lore in-game (with the story missions it really helps dive in) but also on the TV show. I love a game I can really get into the world of and this is definately one of em.
People seriously need to stop hating on games and go into a game with a fresh state of mind, one that is ready for fun and adventure. Remember when gamers used to be open to new worlds? Thriving on new stories? And always seeking fun and adventure in every new game? Man, how we have become jaded and snobby.
Seriously tho for $33, stop reading idiots reviews (like mine) and go try it for yourself WITH an open mind and eagerness to explore a new earth. Whatever you do, don't go into it expecting the best MMORPG of all time (that game died when Sony released Planes of Power for EQ :P ) but do go in expecting to explore and have fun shooting up random crap
If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!
