    They should just turn the people from the show into holograms after the show airs, keep em there of course but leave a lil note that its old content

    At the end of the Article William Murphy wrote:

    I find myself having fun still... despite the title’s many quirks and issues. It’s rough around the edges, sure enough. But one thing that polish can’t usually fix is whether the gameplay is fun. For that to happen, fundamental design changes usually need to take place and that’s rarely going to ever be the case. Fortunately for Trion and the Defiance team: their game is fun at its core. It just needs a coat of paint and some bells and whistles to really make it shine.

     

    And then we hear great info such as:

    the weapon damage is client side (insane levels of stupidity by Trion), and this has resulted in a lot of hacks. 

     

    I am not saying the game is not fun for many many peope, BUT why would we spend close to $100 for a game in 2013 that "needs a new coat of paint", and has so many flaws to be worked out? Just askin...

    Game has some issues, like every other game, but I am still playing and I still think the game is a lot of fun.

    This TV/Game concept is a first, and it shows. The idea that the game needs to keep pace with the series is an odd one. We have two very differant formats TV and gaming, the pace of the story in both formats cannot be the same.

    They seem to be trying to make it all one experiance. Thats a mistake, take flavour from both formats but don't try to march them in step.

    Exactly. They should have taken the LotRO approach to the story. Have the show to follow the exploits of the stars of the show, while having the game cover surrounding events and stories you wouldn't see in the show.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    Im playing and having fun but the 15th patch was a step back, I get the reloading bug alot where my gun reloads, then it reloads again. I get my ark pursuits kill count reset everytime I do an arkfall.

    Not looking forward to Bill's score when he does part 4, theres something good in defiance, It plays really well, combat and shooting are done to my tastes but its buggy and so very short.

    i am currently playing this game with my brother, and we are actually enjoying it more than more "complex" mmos.  They designed the game on console and the UI interface was designed with that in mind and then it was copy pasted straight into the PC. This can somtimes mean its a bit frustrating when trying to get rid of gear you dont want and its already locked on a previous loadout.

    Also some of the missions force you into a solo encoutner even when your grouped which can get frustrating when you have gone through the game as a duo.

     

    Either way i suppose im saying is that im enjoying the game and i am actually enjoying the series i think its quite brave to run both side by side. but at the same time the things i encounter in the game im looking forward to finding out more from the series.

    Bill, the original reason for removing the mission was some continuity. They wanted the game to move forward while the show does, but it's hard to do that when Nolan and Irisa are still sitting around in Mt. Tam while they're also doing stuff in Defiance.

     

    I'm happy they'll bring them back for people who missed them (I'm thinking perhaps the re-runs).

    He acknowledged that in his review, and also noted that its lame to do so when not everyone has gotten to that content yet... and he's right.  LOTRO was a good example of a game that did that... depending on region you ran across story elements that had the Fellowship at that stage of their journey.  If you happen back on that area later as a "progressed" character, can't help you... it's a game and not perfect.  But don't remove content that others haven't had a chance to play, right?

    Right first post in a very long time. 

    I've played defiance pretty much non stop this week now that i've found myself with time off, Literally like 40-50 hours game play since monday.

    I'm still loving it, it has so much potential, and is already keeping me well and truly hooked. It's odd leveling system and battlefieldesk pvp style is awesome.

    There are things still not quite right with the game, but what game is perfet four weeks after release? I'd say it's doing damn well, and to make it better the dev's are most certainly listening to the fan base, something a lot of games don't do often enough.

     

    All Respects
