Tempted in this but missed the beta window. Might give it a rental unless it has an online pass.

Best Buy should be getting it since it seems like a first run pre-order thing and isn't retail specific. I really enjoyed the beta so I'm definitely looking forward to picking this up next week, hopefully my friends who were gonna get it as well stay interested in it so we can have a group going.


That's what I was thinking but they fail to mention it anywhere. I may just stick with my Amazon order but I'm getting this game for sure.

Is there a CAG group for this? I need to find some mature players to game with on this huge game.

Curious if you decided to get it. A few of my good friends (IRL) are getting it and we always play shooters together (Halo mostly) so they convinced me to get it. Though convincing me to buy a game isn't exactly hard... :booty:

As of right now, it's a no for me... I was thinking I would, but my experience with the beta (or lack thereof due to it being completely borked whenever I tried to log in) kind of soured me on it a bit. I'll wait for reviews and maybe pick it up soon if it's working well and people are liking it, but I'm not going to preorder.

Ah okay. Well if you do and don't have people to play with let me know. As I said quite a few of my friends are getting it and we are planning to play it quite a bit. :)

So here's one of my questions that I was hoping to get an answer for in the beta... Are there towns, safe areas, NPCs to interact with, and stuff like that in the game? Or is it all shooting all the time?

But according to the box there's no monthly fee, right? There's no listing of a monthly fee anywhere on it.

No monthly fee, but I'm sure it has an online pass or something to substitute for a PC's cd key which your account should most likely be attached to.

Yeah, there's safe haves/"liberated areas" that NPCs and vendors are. And your driving half the time. But there are random encounters in the middle between objective that give you extra exp and money, should you choose to stop and help.

Yeah, the pass is the game itself. Now you can connect your ID on the defiance website to your gamer tag to get some bonuses from arkfall codes (like shift codes from borderlands) but as it stands, they don't require you to enter in an online pass to play. Nothing of the sort has been announced, although they do mention that it is possible to play offline as well.

I am still debating on it. My friend got it at walmart last night and wasn't able to log on until he had to go to work at 6 am cst. So he was pretty ticked. I was mainly waiting for him to tell me how the game was before I went and got it.
I just wish it would have been a GoD download for 360. I would have bought it on that since I am going to need to install stuff anyways.

So I rented it this morning and played for about a hour. I think I'm going to buy it, it's really fun so far. There is no online pass to play. If anyone wants to get down, send me a FR if you're not already on my list.

Btw that 10gb download is a kick in the nuts. My 120fb HDD is hurting.

I got it. Haven't played it yet but plan to tonight. Gamertag is to the left. Feel free to request me tomorrow. I don't think I'll try playing with anyone tonight since I am going to do things on my own to get a feel for the game again.
None of my friends got it like they were supposed to but I'm going to give it a shot since I planned on watching the TV show anyways and think it will be neat to see what goes on during the season.

Be sure to give yourself a hour or so for the patches after the initial install.

Thanks much. Forgot I read that on the Defiance forums and was going to playing in about an hour so started the update.

How polished does the game feel after the beta? Beta was pretty smooth considering it was an MMO beta on 360, but it was definitely rough. (I know it was a dated build as well)

It definitely feels more polished to me.

So my connection to server timed out and now I get Critical The Defiance Service is not available. Please try again later. I was in the middle of the begging cut scenes like 2 minutes after creating my character so hope when I get back on it doesn't skip the cut scene. Been reading about a lot of issues with connections on their forums. Hopefully they give out some free credits to us for it but doubt it.

Back up.
LOL servers are busy, you have been placed in the queue
queue position 510
Estimated Time Remaining 17 hours 1 Min

haha kind of wished I would have just waited until next week to buy it. I have a feeling these first few days are going to have issues and possible this weekend since its the first weekend.

Damn if server goes down during cut scene then you just skip it.
I'll create another character later to view the scene.

Just start a new character. It doesn't take very long really. (As you already know)

So earlier when I was playing every thing was running good. I started up again About 30 minutes ago and the lag was crazy bad. I couldn't switch weapons, activate mission items, resupply ammo. It's a horrible mess right now.

I don't have much of a problem with lag except with Ark Falls. Having around 100 people on the map caused the enemies I was shooting at to glitch in and out and enemies were rubber banding all over. I've been kicked from the game twice which is annoying for lost connections.

Now that I had half a day to play it I recommended to my friends not to bother with it. I'm all ready bored of doing the same things over and over. Feels over priced for what it is. Kind of feels generic to me, everything from the graphics, enemies, and game mechanics. I'd hold off for a price drop unless you really like the beta. I'm so glad I didn't get ultimate edition. The friend of mine who bought this all ready went back to playing Bioshock after two hours and said he wasn't going to bother with the game again until he sees if the show is any good.

I have noticed the lag in other places now. I was doing those solo missions where you protect the van and enemies were popping all over the place.
