    WOW just like every other mmo. Shocking 

    Yes and maybe the point was: just tell it like it is rather than hyping it LIKE EVERY OTHER MMO!  ;)

    That is what he is doing. He post the things about the game that he likes. He never said that it was like that or not. Its you that had to come in and point out something that doesn't even matter. We all know how mmos are. I don't take what he said as hype at all because he's also explaining good reason for buying the game which are true.

    So, a few months of enjoyment for $60? Sign me up kiddo.

    Great list.

     

    Dont forget the achievments in the the game.  Its very detailed. Like kill X number of guys, while driveing X number of miles, while getting X number of headshots unlocks a certain uniform or other bonus.

    Read through the first 10 reasons and none of them will make the game fun or entertaining to keep my attention and actually play the game.  My eyes were already scorned enough from the first 10 I couldn't keep reading the rest of the small and simple truths of the game.  Too bad none of them actually will make the game any better, still a bad game.

    If the game had 24/7 ongoing faction vs faction conflict..it would have my attention.

    Reasonably fun game.  Not $60 worth of fun though.   Maybe $20 or 25. 

     

    If you have the moolah burning a hole in your pocket, you could do a lot worse.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    Threads telling me the reasons why I shouldn't buy it, threads telling my the reasons I should. The only thing everyone can seem to agree on is the UI sucks for PC. At least there is some sort of common ground.

    I think I'm just going to sit this one out and see where it goes. In a few months if everything seems to be heading in the right direction I'll give it a try.

    Watch some twitch live streams during launch week. You will see if it is the game for you.

    This game requires no skill its for casuals and people who can't hang in other FPS games.

    Tormented echoes of a fallen Eden
    I longed for her beauty
    Yet from dust, she returned
    The dream, an enigma.... silent

    What auto aim?  There is some aim assist for the Xbox 360 and PS3 players but no auto aim.   Maybe if you run some 3rd party auto aim hack then sure.

    Come to think of it, isnt this year the year that Sony and Microsoft release their new consoles, and given that the PS4 will not support PS3 games, and i think the same with the XBOX, wouldnt that preclude anyone who intends to get the new consoles from buying the ps3 and 360 versions of Defiance, and to opt instead to buy the PS4 and 720 versions of the game instead..as for the auto aim, its to help the console players compete due to speed/accuracy limitations of using a gamepad vs a keyboard/mouse combo, so probably an acceptable modification.image

    It should "preclude" people from buying the 360/PS3 versions of Defiance. But that will only happen if they are both sensible and patient.

    You and I both know how well THAT will go... image

     

    Of course, the same logic applies to ALL console games. Nobody should buy another console title until the new boxes are released. Yeah, riiiight....

    No mouse/keyboard vs gamepad so thats not why and the only thing I've seen is aim assist. Most people don't run out and get the new consoles and I'm sure they will have a shortage as always, plus its like 6 months+ before they even come out.

    Define better?

    You can use a 360 controller, and I tried it, and preferred mouse & keyboard. It does not make the UI any better, or easier to navigate. That's just my 2 cents though, and I've always preferred PC to 360 or PS3 for shooters, so I'm definitely biased.


    **EDIT***

    And I dont mean the "define better" to sound snarky, it's just that better for you might not be better for me, and in this case, it did not make my experience any better. To me, it's just not a horribly PC friendly UI is all.
