    There is a new Sci-Fi show titled "Defiance" premiering on SyFy April 15th. The following is a synopsis taken from Wikipedia: "The series is set in the near future, where aliens known collectively as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home after their star system was destroyed. However, upon reaching Earth they found that they were not welcome. The Votans waited in orbit for six years as prolonged negotiations with Earth governments for settlement on the planet ultimately proved fruitless. With supplies on their ships running low, eventually in desperation the Votans began a war with humans to force the issue and make Earth their new home. During the war, Votan ships shot down by human militaries accidentally released terraformer technology, which made haphazard and radical changes to the biosphere and even the geology of Earth, making the planet dangerous to both humans and the aliens. The earth was scorched, chasms opened in the ground, and the surface of the planet was covered with dust and debris. After decades of war, both sides had fought to the point of mutual exhaustion, and a ceasefire was declared. Few organized governments remained for either the humans or the aliens, and both sides factionalized as their members began looking out for themselves. In several areas, local human and Votan militias began to band together when they realized that they had to cooperate if they hoped to survive on this new, almost alien planet."

    SyFy is launching this, simultaneously, as both a TV Series AND an online game! They are currently open for beta signup. Go to the following link to find out about both the show and the game. This looks like a HUGE undertaking, LOOKS very expensive and it'll either be a great success or a monumental bust... but I salute the attempt, either way!

    The game trailer looks kinda interesting. Is it a sub-based game or are they doing free to play? If ti's f2p I'll definitely give it a try, if it requires a sub then I'll see.

    As for the tv show. Well, I don't watch tv anymore. I do watch a couple shows via downloads/streams/dvd, but I quit watching actual tv years ago. And if I was going to start watching something again, it wouldn't be anything from sy fy.

    I may check it out I don't think I'll be jumping right into it. Right now my gaming time is pretty full between STO and Tera.

    Nah! I won't be trying it out. Doesn't catch my interest plus it will just be another mmo that will turn into a huge grind fest and stuff like that. Pass!

    I got a beta invite several weeks ago, but never got unlazy enough to download it and install to give it a try. So probably not going to bother. It'd have to be pretty special to be worth paying $60 for when so many MMO's now days are free.

    Yeah, that one really puzzled me. With all the FTP MMO's available who's gonna pay that much to play this one... on TOP of which they have even more incentive to make it FTP than most since it ties in with their TV show and if they get people playing the game that's just gonna draw 'em to the show...

    My guess is you'll have to buy the game then it'll eventually turn to f2p like TERA did a year later.

    I'd watch the show if I still had cable but I'll have to settle for Hulu for the time being. The 15 minute preview looked good at least.

    It's caught my interest, but not sure I want to invest $60 to $100 for another MMO. I'll probably watch the show, see how it does first. If we get more folks from here entering the game I may try it. I played Tera for a while, which this game resembles (can't imagine why). Tera was ok, but when my PC died, I found there is life beyond gaming. NOOO it can't be true. Smile

    Blasphemer! Don't believe the lies! The air is toxic and what you see outside the windows are figments of your imagination brought on by the drugs "Big Brother" is putting in your food! Come back to the real world here on the little screen, we're your real family and friends. Just watch this Snickers candy bar commercial for proof... *transmits subliminal messages*
