I hate the game now...here is why:
1) Object re-use:
Nothing says lazy devs, boring content, and zzzz when you keep re-using objects and regardless of whether its landscapes, interiors or exteriors, right now its to the point of ruining the games immersion and is cheesy cheap. For example, Arkfalls are a HUGE part of this game....yet, the Ark falls do not look like the cool space debris consisting of parts of Spaceship Ark interiors like you see in the first 15 minutes of the Episode 1 video. NOPE...they are genric blobs of leftover RIFT crap. They look like crap, the loot is crap, its exactly like dynamic spawns in RIFT where you have a circle of stupid stuff surrounding something. Frankly, the RIFT dynamic events are better than the ones in Defiance by a MILE.
You will soon get tired of all the landscapes, buildings and interiors to teh point of total boredom. I understand it gets better, but heck....why must every MMO force us to fight the same type of minions for hours on end - Rats = Hell Bugs. Freaking tired of stupid looking boring Hellbugs!
Give us something else!
2) Horrible Game Design:
The Weapon MOD interface is the worst in eh game industry and it doesnt even work properly IF and WHEN you figure out how it works.
3) Social and Chat is FAIL:
No one uses chat because you have to press Enter to use it and that keeps you from doing anything else. The game might as well me a PS3 console port in Single Player.
4) Loot Stinks:
The first several times you waste 30 minutes at an Arkfall with other players and get nothing other than junk loot, you stop bothering with them.
5) Quests are buggy and subject to server time outs:
So far there have been 2 quests that took hours to complete because they would time out do to server issues and you would not know it until the NPC you are escorting is unresponsive. You have to log out and log back in to fix , which forces you to start over.
6) Time trial quests give nothing:
If you dont place in top 3, you get NOTHING...not even XP.
7) Should be F2P with microtranactions:
Instead you buy the game for $59 and also have microtransactions, thats double dipping all for a sub par game.
8) Quest line comes and goes:
Sometimes the main quest line disappears and you get a message saying to use your map to do other quests. For the past 4 hours there has been NOTHING except the main quest which i cannot complete without a group. No Ark falls except for 1 or 2 small ones on the far side of the map, which when I get there will be over. No side quests for the past 4 hours either...BORING
9) Weapon stats are hosed:
Weapons with great stats stink and weapons with poor stats are good...you do not know what to buy, loot, or sell or keep or discard. Most green weapons are better than blue. You have no clue what you are using.
Save your money until they fix the game, re-design it, or something better comes out.
From the guy who hates everything: I LIKE DEFIANCE

Other than hunting for the Options Menu and how to exit the game:
Little wheel on bottom left....
I have been enjoying the game for the past few hours, and this from a guy who doesnt like shooter type games, and especiially MMOs. But, Defiance is different than most shooters and MMOs. There is a good storyline, quests, side quests, and dynamic quests. There are no stupid static mobs standing around to be hunted, like many MMOs. Instead, you are immediately thrust into a exciting storyline with nice cinematics, and lots of immersion. The graphics are great, and not sure what people were complaining about, to me it looks great. Combat doesnt require the reflexes of a mongoose, nor does driving a vehicle, but yet its not boring or slow like many MMOs. Its in the middle ground on both.
Loot is amble, quests are challanging, driving is a blast and you get achievements for your exciting driving stunts and stuff.
The only negatives are like I said, parts of the UI, which you will eventually figure out, its not that bad. Community is good, but chat is flat....I do not think anyone really knows how to use it. Not that I care..I hate chat, and by default its hidden unless you press enter which is fine by me.
So in a nutshell, I am enjoying this game alot so far adn if you have $60 burning a hole in your pocket then go for it.
WoW's graphics will still be outdated and its art style will still resemble a "Babys Game".
OMG...what were they thinking?
RUN LIKE HELL AWAY FROM THIS AND DO NOT ASK WHY!
EA is really outdoing themselves!

They shut down Wrath of Heroes (Warhammer) end of March.
I hate them
Well now that Wrath of Heros is shutting down they gave us all a WoH chest with a code for a free month of WAR and a bunch of goodies.
Dont matter that WAR is far from perfect, its WARHAMMER! And has none of that cutesey tootsie panda anime stuff I hate in WoW and GW2 and other games.
Anyone else feel that MMOs are a HUGE waste of time?

I agree 100%.
I get most of my enjoyment from Wrath of Heros...only game I have been sticking with.
I love WAR, but i dont play it anymore because its not worth a subscription. In fact have not played it in 2 years.
If they go free to play, I will consider playing it.
Of course anyone new will be owned by T1 twinks, and dead T2 and T3, and slaughtered unmercifully by high RR players.
Also, other than these silly events, the game is abandoned...no new zone, content classes....etc etc
Its a skeleton of a game that could have been great....and I am supposed to be excited about anything Mark Jacobs creates new/
Many players stopped using chat and removed that chat tab and focus 100% on guild chat.
Smart players join guilds and ignore the PUG crud.
Going to the Warhammer: AoR site make me want to cry

I cannot believe the token efforts that the games developers and producer try to "pass off" as events and updates to keep the game interesting and fun...
Makes me want to scream that every Warhammer/Warhammer 40K game is made by companys that dont know what the heck they are doing (Mythic), abandons the game (Bioware) and (THQ Space Marine), or cannot manage money (THQ) Dawn of War and Space Marine, or announces big WH40K MMO then turns it into a single player game (THQ).
If only Blizzard had bought the IP for Warhammer like they intended to......many years ago.
I noticed today after 3 days of selling on the Trading Post that for example, if I list an item for sale at 1s and 10c, even after they take their couple of coppers cut I am not getting close to what they say I should get.
In fact, in one 8 hour period I sold almost 10s worth of stuff, including one 3s item, and got a grand total of 2s in profits!
What a waste of time...and no you cannot have my stuff.
As much as I hate to admit it....yes...and faster than I did with SWTOR.....
Its a beautiful game, but if you want to do crafting such as armorsmithing and weaponsmithing, you will spend your game time grinding low level mobs for crafting ingredients that are needed to grind creating gear towards your next gear level and/or with the discovery feature.
The game economy is shot....too many exploiters salvaging 1000's of crafting materials from store bought items (nerfed now) have saturated the market with items at too low a price as they bet on large quantity and low cost to provide them wealth.
What are YOU having for breakfast while we're waiting for the servers to come back up?

Coffee, Bagel, water and a mouthful of Siberian Husky dog fur...they are shedding like crazy!
Even during the BETA the GW2 website was horrible....talk about discarding traditional way of accessing info....instead GW2 web designers invented a new way to find info and access the site....its called FAIL
Its NOT a sensitive topic and you should not be walking on egg shells or worry about accusatons.
BRATS are BRATS and yes too many children both under the age of 18 and above 18 play MMOs.
That is why I only join 21 and over guilds. End of story.
Gave it a try sadly i wont be playing,,,,

When you all gonna learn:
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FREE TO PLAY
A reminder to those who claim F2P means failure: F2P is NOT Free

When a game goes F2P its not because the game is a failure, it is due to the following reasons:
1) The monthly subscription model is dead.
It is dead for 2 reasons - MMOs make more money with F2P than subscriptions and players are drawm to F2P more than subscriptions because they "think" its free.
2) Ask any Age of Conan or Lord of the Rings Online player (who has leveled to cap, raided, and quested to cap) how much they have spent on each game as a subscription versus as F2P and you will be shocked to see that F2P at the very least caused these players to exceed a yearly subscription amount.
3) F2P increased player pop in both AoC and LOTRO, albiet AoCs pop is going down for a different reason - poor expansions and a poor PvP game design that leaves slow poke players in the dust or players that PvE'd to cap without PvPing tokens (sound familiar SWTOR?).
F2P will help SWTOR just as it did AoC, but unless SWTOR makes some design overhauls it will eventually suffer. I cannot tell you how many players did not want to pvP in AoC and SWTOR until they hit level 50, and then found they were HOSED.
Yes, we all know WoW is declining in Population, but its numbers are still very successful and the game has already paid for itself and makes huge profits for Blizzard. ATM it does not make sense for WoW to go F2P.
In conclusion, the sooner players realize that F2P is not an admission of failure but the new standard, the sooner these players will understand the MMO world today...and its a bleak one. For with F2P your initial elation of "hey this games free"! No asking mommy and daddy for a credit card; will soon become dispair when you see that you cannot truly enjoy the full game without forking over MONEY...much more money.
Keep an eye on Guild Wars 2, the only truly "free" MMO (not excluding purchase price), which contrary to Guild Wars 1, will have microtransactions.....
Are we gamers nothing but lemmings being led through road tolls.

Is Battlestar Galactica any good?

As with AoC (Age of Conan) and a few others, if you didnt play from the get go or somehow survived the past years, you will die to teh point of realizing new players are fodder for the EVE die hards who paid 2 years of subs to get enough money to play for free, i.e. buy game time with PLEX. Their goal is to make new players quit and farm those dumb enough to start playing.
