Ok I only bought this game because it was $13 on a Steam sale.     I don't particularly like the show.  Feels sort of Joss Whedon cheesy if you know what I mean.

However, as I'm wanting to play something until FFXIV ARR comes out, I figured I should give this a go for a month or so and try to re-watch season 1 of Defiance just for giggles if anything.  

After seeing the 100000000000th Dodge Challenger in screenshots, footage, and advertisements, I decided to do some research into the mounts.  I figured, hey, they must have some pretty neat cars/trucks to choose from, all done up Mad Max style.

Well, I found some info that described 3 classes of transportation.   It basically says there are ATV's, CARS, and INDUSTRIAL/TRUCKS.  The difference between these being their speed and durability.  Reading further, I became disappointed to find that the "Cerberus" vehicles (big trucks and such) are only usable in PvP and Co-op 'phases' ?   That for normal gameplay, the only options for mounts is ATV and Dodge Challenger?

Is this true?       

 

I am not going to say "oh i don't like the mount system, screw this game" --  But, on the other hand, if this is truly the case, the marketting being shoved in my face like this utterly disgusts me.   Not only should I not have to give a shit about about Dodge Challengers when I'm playing a post apocalyptic sci-fi shooter, I shouldn't have to be forced to think about any real world car manufacturer while I'm in an MMORPG not based on cars.    

 

Does anyone else find this a bit .. I dunno if I can find the word.   But, it definitely takes me out of the game and makes me feel like I'm playing a commercial.       Same reason why I won't watch the Transformer movies.

... I've heard this game has over 1 millions sales, yet not one person can chime in and clarify this for me?

 

Let me simplify it.

 

 

 

In Defiance, are there any other mounts that can be used anywhere OTHER than Dodge Challengers??????

How could a game, that takes place on Earth, having real Earth cars like Dodge Challengers take you out of the game?

 

He's got a Dodge Charger in the show. I mean, yes obviously Dodge is one of their sponsors. But it fits in the world since it is still Earth though in the future. Mad Max would love to drive a Challenger.
