    Defiance (PS3, 360, PC)

    Is anyone looking into this one? It's one of those rare 3rd person shooters. Hope it's good. I'm going to be in the beta; which is March 22-24.

    I might think about it in the future. It has had my interest for a bit, but I'm pretty much on a game buying freeze right now.

    Between spending $100+ either Friday or sometime next week on paying for my laptop repairs, and eventually getting a new cell phone in the coming weeks (probably gonna wait until I get my tax return money), money's gonna be tight for a bit. Unless there is a game that I want that ends up on sale for an actual good price on Xbox Live, Amazon or elsewhere, I probably won't be buying any more games until NCAA '14.

    Yeah thankfully I'll be in the beta, so if it blows me away, and Walking Dead sucks, I'll use the money I get from selling that to buy Defiance.

    A lot of the web stuff seems to be pretty sweet. You'll randomly get codes to redeem on the website (some or by e-mail, some might be in-game I think) which you redeem for weapons, etc.

    This is the beta schedule.

    Advance Mission Beta 3
    PC
    March 22(8am PDT)– March 24(9pm PDT)

    PS3

    XBOX 360
    March 25(8am PDT)– March 26(9pm PDT)

    Eh. It's a 3rd person shooter which instantly means I have zero interest in it.

    That looks exactly like Starhawk.

    I'll wait for reviews. Isn't this supposed to be a MMO?

    Something to the tune of an MMO, yes.

    Pretty solid so far. I like the set up, the special abilities grid is full of power-ups to unlock and level up on. Kinda like a combo of Gears and Borderlands, but with it's own graphical style.

    I have a beta code for you that you'd redeem on the web, and I think you get to choose between PC, 360, or PS3. Let me know if you want it and I'll DM the code and instructions to you.

    I hope the actual game is a lot less buggier than the beta. I've read the beta is pretty old, so I hope that's the case. Good Lord, it took me about 50 tries just to log in to the servers.

    Here are some codes from Joystiq. They are good for once per account.

    Prepare to wait to play patch, game install, in-game patch, and I think I'm on another in-game patch on top of the first in-game patch.

    Outside of not being able to back out of a menu once, the game is pretty stable. Just defeated my first boss of sorts. There is a shit load of customization and unlocks. It's kinda funny seeing a gigantic mass of people in a common area with it being an MMO. I'm just waiting for a Harlem Shake to break out

    One of the user reviews on Metacritic:

    Fallout 3 and Borderlands had a baby and that baby we know is Defiance. What is Defiance you ask? Defiance is a MMO (Third person shooter), which is based off syfy channel TV's show Defiance (debuting April 15th). The game takes place far west in America. I will keep this short because not everybody likes long reviews these days. The game is fun, the game map is huge, there are a ton of stuff to do like quests, mini quests, etc. So if you're a fan of the game's Borderlands or Fallout 3, you should love this.

    He's about spot on, I'd also throw in DC Universe Online. It definitely feels like that too.
