Certainly same world in a game and a tv show has not been done like this before.

Whether it will be successful, i don't know .. but at least it is new.

Have you just found out about it?  A beta weekend just finished.

This doom and gloom thread was brought to you by Chin Up™ the new ultra high caffeine soft drink for gamers who just need that boost of happiness after a long forum session.

Nari, I almost think you are trolling at this point. the paradigm is new, but Defiance as a game itself does not bring anything new to the table gameplay wise. Though it did steal a couple of cool things that other games should steal too.

I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

The only thing Defiance has going for me is Stahma Tarr. As if Jaime Murray wasnt hot enough already...

I would wash her feet with milk and eat my cereals with it.

Isn't it a MMOFPS? It talks about thousands of players playing at the same time.

well .. tying in with a tv show like this is new, isn't it? I didn't say new in gameplay, did i?

"New" in lore and how they do stories (i.e. ties with tv show) is new too. You may not like it, but that does not make it less "new". And i am not even say it will be successful.

I wonder if she will show up in the game. My bet is, all the main characters will show up in the game as quest givers, and NPCs from time to time.

Because it has a lot of PvE gameplay (as opposed to PS2 is 100% pvp)? They also said no shard .. so the "virtual world" people should be happy.

I'm not sure the concept really gets people excited, we shall see I'm sure.

It's an FPS with lots of people. They made a decision to not go all the way and make it a full MMO in the MMORPG sense  from what I read.

only things that worries about about this game, is I have heard there really isnt much for prgression of weapons and armor , since they want people to be equal from the start.   Have to read up more on character progression to know the truth about this.

Defiance is not a MMO, but good to see games like this hitting the scene. Called by some MMOFPS, we don't have enough of them in my eyes.

I was interested in the concept - TV show influence game/ game influence TV show) untill I read a bit more about what the game is. Pretty standard fare with not much if anything new to show for it. I can understand some of that as they had a real definitive deadline (IE the airing of the first TV show) and can not afford to have any delays caused by bad gameplay or bugs. Still the game appears to be very vanilla or bland overall(I have not yet played it so just going off website description). I imagine it couuld be entertaining for a month or so but thats about it for me.

The game as I see it since playing beta is extreme in its weakness as it stands... ok it plays as a fps/fallout style gameplay if I dare say it myself, but its weak.. the good thing for it as a game right now is the fact its smooth and with lots happening it dont lag in big fights..

Not surprising though I guess eh...

On a different note: That picture on previous page, lol :D  All I have to say is .. MAN FEET!

Go on take a look, ugh creepy.

The TV show + game concept is interesting, but it's unlikely to be anything major. Besides, what if the show sucks?

Other than that, it looks a lot like Firefall, except FF has jetpacks. Jetpacks are awesome.

     Not sure I can call Difiance innovative or new..  The game play is pretty much the same as any other online FPS..  Just because a TV show makes reference from time to time on what is happening at the "game" location isn't something I care about..  I don't see much PvE here, and I'm sure what little there is, is only a marketing ploy to grab initial sales, but won't retain many..   That seems to be the goal of devs anymore.. Hype the hell out of a game, get alot of box sales and maybe hold on to subs for 6 moths and move on to the next money grab..
