Defiance: the final preview | OXM

OXM: "Imagine a shooter that’s always online, its expansive open world populated by dozens if not hundreds of players who can organically influence each others’ experiences in any number of ways. It’s a shooter where you can casually partner up to tackle story missions, form an ad hoc militia to collectively conquer a dynamic event, and opt-in to the Shadow War to battle other players without ever leaving the shared world. Aside from the long-forgotten Final Fantasy XI, it’s the closest thing the Xbox 360 has to a massively multiplayer online game…and it’s not Bungie’s newly announced project, Destiny. It’s also not Planetside or Firefall or even Dust 514. It’s Defiance — a third-person shooter designed as a real-time narrative counterpart to a new Syfy television series — and it’s just about to land on store shelves nationwide." (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I've gotten used to screen tearing because the game is still fun. The 10 gb install and day one patches are about a 50 minute process.

Good to know. I plan on picking this up shortly. I have the ign "first hour of" playing in the background.

I really hope that the show is good. Could potentially fill the void left by Firefly.

Just recently game into Firefly and gotta see it is enjoyable. What of Serenity? Since I saw it was after Firefly?
Myst  +   848d ago
So. Damn. Addictive!
Heisenburger  +   848d ago
Serenity is really, really good. It takes place after Firefly, as you said and sort of wraps the stories up.

Very rewarding payoff(s) for all of the Browncoats.

Will have to watch them then tomorrow. If I can pull myself away from Defiance...

Firefly and Serenity together is one of my favorite sci-fi stories of all time. Several times a year, I watch it all back to back over a few days. FOX really handled the show badly. Such a crime.

And yeah Defiance is addictive indeed. I played for nearly 12 hours today. lol
Myst  +   847d ago
Lol! I figured you would play a lot like I am doing now. Had to run out and get a Mountain Dew Kickstarter.

Well looks like I have some things to watch tomorrow then.

Ya I've been playing it for prob 5 hours now. It's actually really good. The graphics aren't that great, but it's got the addictive mmo thing going on for sure. It's been running pretty good too, especially for the first day. I mean I was fighting a boss with a couple hundred people at the same time. It was crazy in an awesome way. I'm playin on ps3, but if u have a 360 or ps3 and are wanting a mmo to play. I recommend it for sure.

Could someone tell me about this game...it appeared to fallen out of the sky...out of nowhere, what in the world it is it?

A kick ass TPS MMO for consoles and PC. It's certainly not revolutionary in terms of gameplay mechanics, but my god it's so fun to play. It's similar to how Borderlands would be in Third Person, except a lot less loot. There's still loot, just not anywhere close to Borderlands scale.

The game has been out a day and they're already patching in user request. Trion is certainly on top of this and I'm loving it. You should check it out.

Why are there no reviews of this game yet. Everyone still seems to be doing previews, when the game is now out.
I've got it on order but it wont get delivered til friday.
Myst  +   847d ago
There is one I saw this morning it was a 7.9/10 it's on here also.

Here it is -- http://n4g.com/news/1223866...

Well, it is an MMO. MMO's shouldn't be reviewed until they've at least sunk many hours upon hours into to it to see what it has to offer. Some MMO's start off very basic and slow but after lets say 10+ hours it kicks it up a notch and tons of new options are available. I'd say within a week or so (Depending on when review copies were sent out) we should start seeing more reviews. I'm personally loving it. Gameplay is so fun. Can't stop playing lol
