Thoughts on the game after the show (*spoilers inside*)

DMKanoDMKano Gamercentral, AKPosts: 8,506Member Uncommon

The Volge - Votan military race bread for war - I can't wait to see these in game. I noticed several ranks the grunts (smooth helmets), the spiky helmets were higher rank as they gave orders, there seemed to be a ranged one as well. All using cold fire weaponry, I noticed some robots shooting conventional rounds. Their language was static almost white noise as I read in one article, only Inogene and Gulenee can understand the Volge.

We know one of the upcoming DLCs will introduce another playable race - who will it be?

I feel better about having my crystal stolen by Nolan and Irisa at least it was ultimately used for a good cause, or was it?

I wonder what the purpose of the attack was, seems kind of a huge risk for what reason?

Also did anybody notice those drake looking flying reptiles over Defiance.... Possible future flying mounts? Hehe I know why not just have high-tech flying mounts, right?

Loving it so far, well done SyFy and Trion. I see a lot of potential here for something really unique.

    The show was awesome. I'm just upset I have to wait another week before I can see another episode.

    They said there will not be flying mounts, or ships at all. With the arkf falls comming in all of the time flying is way to dangerous. 

     Will that change in the future? Who knows. 

     

    Not so nice guy!

    I was kind of joking about flying mounts, but you are right, who knows.

    Dirt bikes! Yes please.

    Also check out your in game pursuits, episode 1 and 2 pursuits got added!

    Also did you notice that the ex-mayor in the dinner talking about setting up the attack to empty Defiance of people so they could hunt for something that is under Defiance.

    I want a dam horse

    A good old cowboy mount, the horse would have to have a jump instead of a jet boost, make them slower of corse but let the player use weapons while riding them, makes sense, a trade off for not having fast speeds, jet boost and being able to run enemies over.

    Definitely a good show Syfy picked up so far, too bad people will compare it to other sci-fi which is just bad criticism....allow the show to gain it's own ground.

    The map is much larger can't wait for it to open up. Nothing changed with the show since the game is just fun to play and the show has very little to do with the game.

    3mil plus watch the live feed after the show.

    i never liked the good old sci-fi tv shows from back in the day. Watched some old star wars and was ok, no big deal, just ok. Never liked Star trek. Saw a little bit of babylon 5 when i was a kid, was too young to enjoy it and now i just dont have interest in watching old sci-fi stuff. Watched bits and pieces of Battlestar galactica and was not bad but didnt interest me enough to watch the whole thing. Thats where i stand with sci-fi tv shows and movies. I think ive never been a sci-fi fan, not even a big movie fan.

    I have nothing to compare Defiance with and i totally LOVED Defiance episode 1. Looking forward to every episode and more seasons, thank you very much.

    Still enjoying the game, and now that i saw the show im looking forward to more goodies in the game. More updates, new content, and fixes, etc.

    You HAVE to watch Babylone 5 and Batterstar at least, those IMO are the best Sci fi show ever made, B5 set the standards for story telling, I invy you man because you are in for a epic ride that will change how you view everything after watching those shows, lets hope Defiance can at least share those glories, so far so good, we got to give it a few more shows though.

    I spend the last 4 years catching up on all the Sci fi I have missed, thanks to netflix and online streaming, took me 2 years to watch all of Star Trek lol, but like you I never gave them shows a chance when I was younger now I am what you call a Sci Fi geek, I know my sci fi lol , sad but true,  those shows really changed my views on just about everything, from politics, religion everything, and for the better.

    Yup yup the plot thickens. Prob a main Villian. Love the show it is a cross between GunSmoke and Babalon 5 and Dallas.

    "Jackson" is my new favorite song now LOL

    I was sort of falling asleep in the first half of the show but I did enjoy the last 30-40 minutes. As I kept being interrupted here while trying to watch it I might actually go watch it again later.

    Great show. I love the connection that the crystal we helped recover (and had stolen) wound up being used to recover the terra-sphere which wound up saving Defiance. Also liked seeing the Spirit Rider with the top hat celebrating in Defiance after the fight.

     

    This show holds much promise, even without the game. Adding the game... yeah. So far so good.

    Hopefully they add a fight club like in the show.  I wanna punch people in the butt and shut em down XD  It was a pretty good show.  I still like Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, or Sons of Anarchy more, but this one will grow on me.  The tie in with the game was more than I was expecting.

    I won't be surprised if they show is canceled after first season. They seem to have spent a lot on this and they will need consistent high ratings to continue. I love the show but i am prepared because that is how most of the sci-fi shows are when it comes to ratings.

    After FIREFLY got canned anything is possbile.

    Yeah, I have no clue why they got rid of Firefly.

    FOX canceled Firefly because they thought it was "too dark" for them. The ratings were low enough out of the gate that they felt justified in canceling it. You have to wonder at the accuracy of ratings systems.

    So Definace is that  Han Solo comes to town with a daughter.  He's disliked/untrusted by all sides, so is the logical choice to be thrust into the role of sheriff.  As he grows and becomes a better person, everyone else starts to see his value, enemies became friends, etc.

    After not really knowing what to expect and not getting my hopes up too high, I enjoyed the show.  Keep in mind that I haven't yet finished the main storyline in the game so some of this may be invalidated by content I haven't seen yet.  Some thoughts I had:

     

    1) By giving up the terrasphere and the payout they would have gotten, Nolan and Irisa are still on the hook with Varus.  I wonder if that'll be something that will tie our Arkhunters with them in the future as well.  (I still haven't forgiven Nolan for screwing my arkhunter over, lol).

     

    2) The whole E-Rep connection is another piece I'm looking to find out more about and I thought it was neat that Amanda mentioned vidconferencing with Ara Shondru near the end.

     

    3) Castithan hygienic practices are awesome.

     

    4) I strongly suspect the Castithans will be the first new playable race after seeing how important they are to the show and it was great to see Nolan kick that Bioman's rear after all the headaches they've given me in-game.

     

    5) Lastly, while it's hard to judge right now, the potential of keeping a game fresh by tying it to the content of an evolving tv show is probably an even bigger draw than I thought it would be.  I don't know what their plans are but the possibilities are incredible, especially if the show continues and the two really do influence each other in the future.
