    They have a whole set of features for this on Xfinity on Demand. They were playing bits of it while I was looking through their other stuff, but I didn't put it together until I saw the pre-order deal on Steam.

    Yes, I am also unsure as to how the show/game thing will work and if it'll be a good thing.

    I watched a stream someone linked earlier by DrChiz and he said he saw the 2 hour premier already and really liked the show. So I am hopeful that it turns out well, but I have my doubts.

    I can say I am for sure interested in the game based on what I've seen.

    The showrunner appears to be the guy who did Farscape, which was a pretty decent show. It probably won't be amazing but I don't think it'll be dreadful either.

    Also, lots of the crew from Battlestar Galactica are making the show, too.

    Including Bear McCreary.


    The show definitely looks like something I'd like.

    Hulu has a bunch of clips and stuff on the show, including this nugget: http://www.hulu.com/watch/442541#i0,p10,d1

    This bit of info was the primary reason I became interested in this game / show. I LOVE Farscape (I just started a re-watch) and I'm hoping that Defiance can re-capture some of its magic. Since I was also a big fan of Rift (I'm still of the opinion it has the best class system ever) I'm hoping that Trion can work their magic on the game, as well. I plan to check out the beta weekend and pre-order (or not) based on how I like it.

    The skill system for THIS game looks pretty cool, I'm wondering where the 'cap' is though. Right now you basically choose one of four big main abilities, and then branch off into smaller ones. They are locked off until an adjacent skill has had at least one point put in.

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    Not sure there is a cap. You can unlock the other skills and you have builds that you can switch to freely.

    So you could have a build for each skill and just bounce between them as you need/want. Eventually. (Is my guess)

    So kinda like with Secret World, neat.

    Yeah, you can unlock everything, and save different loadouts - you can only have so many perks equipped at once.

    Oh, so that big ol' grid isn't a "build," it's just the unlock system? Cool.

    Yeah, the build is which set of them you have equipped.

    edit: and here's that calculator for them. http://defiance-central.com/ego-calculator/

    Obviously you've got to get the points though, so you wont have -everything- right off the bat. Right?

    Nope, you start with nothing and pick one of the four major powers first.

    One thing I find a bit annoying is that your visual appearance is just split between headgear (helmets, hats, goggles, whathaveyou) and "outfits", meaning everything else. But eh, we'll see what kind of variety we get there.

    Yeah, but on the bright side, outfits will match.

    little off topic but is there other companies that do this figure printing for other games?

    I, too, received a beta invite.

    I already know why I should care, though.

    You're probably going to have to wait for better 3D printing. It's too much work to CAD these sorts of things up currently.

    What is this I don't even.

  • Man of the WavesMan of the Waves Registered User regular
    No, I didn't.

    I signed up a couple days ago and entered all the arkfall codes is all.

    I was going to preorder through steam tonight until I got the beta e-mail. Now, I'll probably preorder from GameStop for the physical goodies.

    Depending on how the beta goes, of course.

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    For Steam users, go to your library and select defiance, look on the right side of the screen for CD KEY, input key into your trion account for beta access.

  • Man of the WavesMan of the Waves Registered User regular
    Here's a giveaway for PC beta keys.

    No preorder necessary.

    Once we start getting in I'll be "beta testing" for most of the day.

    Servers are restarting now.

    So I just made a character for the beta and am waiting in queue. Am I just blind or were there no options to change your hairstyle and color?

    When you make your character, you pick race/gender, click continue. It shows a skin color, facial feature thing. At the top are other sections, including hair and color.

    Yeah I totally missed those character customization options too.
