    Haven't really heard much negative comment sont heir publishing, maybe other than the issue with Witcher 2 when they tried to sue CDProjekt RED for releasing DRM free patch soon after release for the physical copies distributed by Namco (retaile version required one time online activation forced by publishers) . No such issue with MMOs so they should manage it without hiccups.

    Ah, so that is why the price of the box is so grossly inflated on greenmangaming for Australians - I thought it was unusual for Trion considering rift could be purchased onlinR at usd parity..

    Poor form :/

    Defiance is not a good enough game on its own imo.

    If the show is great it can probably carry the game, I can see people enjoying it more if it means more to them via an excellent TV show but overall the gameplay for defiance is subpar and the engine is dated.

    I do have much love for Trion though and I wish them the best especially with archage NA I doubt they can meet the 2013 goal but even a 2014 archage would be great and I applaud there efforts.
