Having the console beta so close to release date kind of spoiled it a bit.  Nice to see the console beta code was old code and the main issues have been resolved.   Don't like the ammo crate updates though, that is getting on my nerves.   But well happy that arkfall events don't now go mental and lag when loads of players attend.   Don't understand some of things yet, like weapon mods - I have slots but they aren't useable. I enable a slot and it still doesn't seem useable.  But not a major concern I will get there in the end. 

 

Overall it's quite a different game to the beta on the Xbox.  A lot of things are a bit harder to kill now, different types of mutant, better animations, sound issues are fixed.  Impressed to be honest and it's running well. Not noticed any sort of lag or any problems.   Hats of to them, nice launch and a polished game - top marks.

 

I found a post on the official forums a few days ago and this guy has made a number of FAQ videos on Youtube. Here's one all about weapon mods.

It's quite enjoyable. That said, if it had a sub fee, I wouldn't have bothered.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

Its not a MMORPG, and its not a PS2 style battleground...its something inbetween, and for me, whos kinda burnt out on high fantasy games, the sci fi weapons the story and the type of game it is has been fairly enjoyable thus far..

Im expecting the game to open up more as the TV show progresses, meaning that i cant imagine there being very much in terms of main storyline in the game at this point.  Whole point of the game+tv show is to tie them in right?  Why would anyone expect there to be enough content to make watching the TV show pointless?  Or to spoil plot lines or whatever?

 

Ill admit that this isnt going to be a game people on this site like.  It competes in mechanics with GW2, being a lot of dynamic events, though its oddly not as shallow, and certainly not as cliche as that game...which instantly fill this sub forum with haters.  Its nothing like APB, nothing like Firefall, nothing like PS2, nothing like Global Agenda or Fallen Earth.  They really hit a good middle ground with a PVE TPS.

Its not the best game ever.  It plays and feels different, which is what i want.  Longevity?  Well its buy to play. I expect at some point ill walk away from the game and then come back, as i do with other buy to play steam games, and thats how im treating the game..not a mmorpg that i need to be glued to or im done.  Im sure Trion will add free content along with the DLC stuff.  Either way theres certainly a lot of events and side missions to keep you plenty busy. I dont expect DLC to be crazy expensive, i think the first 5 seasons of DLC were packaged at $30, which is fine with me, if im still interested ill buy it.

 

I wouldnt want to play this game for 15 hours a day weeks on end, not that i want to ever really do that with any game, as its the best way to ruin a good game for youself.

 

Only real complaints are the menu system and the TPS view+crosshairs takes about 20min to get use to.  I hate the dialogue the allien lady uses...every time i hear her say "schtako" i want to punch her deformed face. 

Story is decent, not typical of mmorpgs which is good.  I dont know where the story is leading to, most mmorpgs its beyond predictable which is super annoying paired with a "try hard" story that wants to be the most epic story ever told.

Combat mechanics are fun once accostomed to them, guns are pretty interesting with a bit of complexity and leveling involved in the actual weapon.  The Ego system is light on complexity, i think it could use some work and be a bit more interesting though.  Oh and you only get one "magic" skill as i would call it...which is good...you focus on the shooting of things.

 

Yeah im liking it now, we will see how long that lasts, and if theres any returning player motives afterward.  Should be interesting...  Oh and i think watching the TV show is really going to enhance game enjoyment...so if your into that kind of thing its going to be a game that works i think.  Saw only the 14min trailer on the syfi website...didnt look nearly as cheezy as i thought it was going to look...and actually has a base story thats quite interesting. 

 

If your broke or hate spending money without getting years in return then i would skip the game and stick to whatever new f2p game comes out.  If $60 isn no big deal and your able to act like an adult regarding games and expectations i would give it a try if this all sounds interesting.

 

Did I read this right: You are burnt out and still keep on playing?

Sorry man but what a pittiful life is that? There are millions of other things besides gaming in this world... its not like you HAVE to play each new MMO?

And speaking of "new" - if you are burnt out that means you are playing a lot. So you have experience how games are being developed. And that they do not differ that much in the last years.

You are free to take a break and come back whenever you want.

I love this game, I'm having fun, and that's all that matters to me.  I'm the only one that can give a proper review for a game (for me).  Until, people realize this, there's gonna be all kinds of hate and trolly posts.  I played alpha and beta, and I loved it, so I knew I would love the game even more.  That's why it's my 5th pre-order ever, and my only pre-order since Rift.  I love Trion :)

Once i got past horrible patcher i enjoyed what few hours i could spent in it last night. it is a B2P MMO and since it is not raid focused i am not obliged to play it everyday because i have to catch up with other players. It is a perfect MMO to get in and out whenever i feel like.

I don't have much time anyways..hour or two is all i get these days for gaming.

Does this game has its problems? many actually but it is not some 'horrible' peice of garbage as some would want you to believe.

you read it wrong.  its a long post so i figured those with poor reading comprehension wouldnt get it.

 

I should really start adding a TL;DR summary of my posts that are long

 

TLDR of previous post: It doesnt play like the high fantasy themeparks im burned out on, so i like it.

I wouldnt say i love it..but i like it..my expectations were low and i figured the game would be short in the beginning since it scales with the tv series..so im taking it slow..not progressing to fast...altho since there is no Endgame...Trion still needs to put up more "End of Episode" content..say i go through ALL of the game and im just waiting for the next episode...maybe put in some pve raids (dont bash me) or something that we can do to get ready for the next episode..which yea u can do pvp and run around looking for arkfalls but it seems like alot of ppl want "endgame" stuff which im guessing is repetitive things to make there character stronger ...repetitive instanced stuff?...which honestly i think arkfalls are prolly the pve thing to do for End of Episode content  but that gets boring because its the same thing over and over again...sigh i think i just explained endgame for every mmo tho lol..i think tho if u come at the game with low expectations..ull be surprised lol

I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would :)

 

I had minimal beta playtime, so it's all new and shiny. I'm taking my time, because this game has to last me all the way to the Wildstar launch, lol

 

As usual, there are those that have raced to "endgame" (seen all the current zones and finished the main story questline) and are now complaining that there's nothing to do. I'm doing every single quest, challenge and avtivity that I find as I go. I still have heaps of stuff to look forward to...

It's definitely a console port, I was using a m/k, but now i'm using an xbox 360 controller, which feels much more natural. It's fun though and worth 25 quid to me.

Just don't expect what we expect in a true pc title, like the upcoming Darkfall Unholy wars for example, that releases on the 16th April. ;)

I'll probably get flamed for this but  am actually having major Tabula Rasa flashbacks/nostalgia while playing this game.  Didn't play the betas at all and was going to skip this game altogether but found out some friends were getting it so i picked it up.  Went in with 0 expectations and I'm enjoying myself a great deal.  Whether it's an MMO or not it's a fun game and an enjoyable experience thus far.  I think it's a given at this point that I'll get my $60 worth at the least.

The graphic is 2 generations old, the gameplay is bad, the questing terrible, even the ui and controls are horrible.

Yeah its a shame they didnt have 3 beta events that werent hard to get into, aside from getting beta access for preordering.

Graphics look good on my system, perhaps you need to upgrade!

No, graphics doesn't look good. I have an i7 with a gtx 680 settings are on high.

I didn't enter beta and i didn't preorder so i really don't see your point.

Graphics look fine, but they aren't cutting edge or anything.  I think they look pretty good considering how responsive the game feels, and the number of players that show up doing things in the same area.  But yeah, if you're looking for cutting edge tech, then Defiance isn't it.

I've been playing this game solid and loving it. i love riding around on my runner, trying to avoid roads and going over mountains to get to missions etc. Love switching between sniper stealthy then full on rambo with automatic rifle. But the most fun is if you get a good infector. I got one that has extra long range and is good for taking out snipers, watching an army of head crabs suicide bomb everywhere is awesome. 

The main annoyance for me is the menu system which is unweildy and seems to take far to many steps to get anything done. The chat system also seems odd. Ive been in battles where theres about 40 people and no one is talking. i asked a question in chat to which no one replied. I have seen some chat going on but it is very rare. 

The MMO features such as crafting and distractions like fishing arent there as well as no bank or no trading system (that ive found anyway). Not sure if any of that stuff is going to be put in anyway, cant quiet work out where they are going with the game. 

 

I would say though that for pure fun its hard to beat and that's coming from someone who likes TBS, RTS and In depth mmorpg's with crafting and trading (normally avoid shooters).

It is easier to Fight for Principles then it is to Live up to them.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way for me to be able to be a medic of some kind in this game, other than just reviving people? Is there any healing character i can build?
