It’s been awhile since I’ve posted something so here goes! I’ve been playing around with Defiance since beta and the game seems to be great for a post apocalyptic world with aliens and wasted landscapes. It was released a few weeks ago and just like any game/MMO with that fresh release smell, it has its quirks and bugs but it looks like Trion is working on them as fast as they can and they seem to be keeping a good line of communication going on their site and twitter. I’ve played the game just about every day since its release and I’ve enjoyed the game play and the story. The game ties into the TV show that will air its full first episode on the Syfy channel April 15th. A reminder they had up for sometime in game indicated that you should make sure to play the ‘Episode Missions’ that are currently available because the first episode of the show is almost here. The missions give you back story on Nolan and his daughter that helps explain a little bit of their situation. I think the missions will go away once the first episode airs.
Anyways, as I get time, I’ll list a little review of the game. Currently there are just 2 of us ‘Goons playing but there may be some more as time goes on. My understanding is the game evolves with what happens in the show and vice versa so I look forward to what they do in game. I get the feeling this game will last a long time. With no subscription fee for an MMO, its not like you are losing money on the game if you take a break from it and come back later. Just means more content!
