Defiance Boasts a Million Accounts

Trion Worlds announces that players have created more than one million accounts in Defiance since the launch of the open world shooter one month ago today, less specifically adding that "TV viewers are tuning in at record cable numbers for the first two episodes" of the related TV show. They offer some stats from the game's first month, saying more than a half-billion hellbugs have been killed, 50 million miles have been driven, and Ark Hunters have engaged in triggering and battling back over one million Arkfalls.

I have not seen the show or played the game but I have been interested in both. I have been wondering if either or both would be worth trying.

After reading the comments on Blue's about the game and such, I think I have my answer...

...and that would be no...

To be fair, some on Blues seem to hate certain game types or game models out of principle, so I'd never take anything as though it were a WORD OF GOD type thing. Show's free, if you have cable, and it can be streamed from the website, so might as well give it a shot. If you don't like it after a few minutes, all you've lost is a little of your time. As for the game . . . at 60 bucks, no. 10.00 or maybe 20.00, if you like Borderlands . . . possibly. I've played it, and while it's not the worst game I've ever played, I've certainly played better. Third person borderlands is a reasonably close comparison, without the cartoony look, a bit of pop up, and some possibly worse textures in places.

No, the show is legitimately bad and the game I don't doubt it every bit as bad.

People on Blues may be jaded and cynical, but we have taste. And pros. And prose.
