Recommended Posts

Yep... I like it so far. Different twist for a change... We needed something like this or awhile.

I was going to say the opposite. While I thought it was interesting I thought it was pretty generic. The plot was a mix of eureka and Serenity. We'll have to see if it also shares their interesting characters. I'll give it a few episodes.

Only watched the first half of the pilot so far. Overwhelmingly meh. No imagination went into the characters. I'll give it a few weeks, though.

 

Overwhelmingly meh. Lol. Well put.

 

The idea of a show going on in parallel with a Game is a neat idea. Haven't tried the game though

I dunno if it was like Eureka.. I liked that show a lot. But Irisa is kewl/hot and they showed next weeks... looks like they show the mines with St. Louis, Missouri down below. Dunno if it sunk... But anywho.. Living with an alien culture. More like Mad Max with aliens and sub cultures. I'll give it a go for a few.

Outsider shows up with his "daughter" and ends up sherif of a closed community. Totally Eureka. It also had a lot of Revolution plot points in that they're supposedly all looking for some artifact..in this case the mines.

What I meant not like Eureka is that eureka was not that far fetched and on earth during current times... Not mixed with aliens and crap. In any event... I like this kinda stuff, so I'll give it a chance to evolve. There are some actors in it I like too. And I like kick ass chicks. Even if she's alien! ;)

True. I just hope the producers have bigger sights than "just another SciFi".

Compared to all the other once a week crap syfy puts out with cgi, looks like they actually spent some bux on it. Even though there is cgi, their costumes along are not cheap. It may just end up a long lasting series like the Stargates were. I know for fact a lot of fans of most of the SG genre were pist they shut down. So something like this could be he answer to bring viewers back to the syfy channel. Try catch the making of if you haven't too.

I liked SGU and its a shame they never took advantage of its potential. I hope defiance does as you say, there really hasn't been any good science fiction on since SGU and BSG.

I have watched all the episodes as well as play the game on XBox.  I am kind of sucked into the show and I love that the game and show link up.  You intereact with Irisa, Nolan, Rynn so far.  There is also an episode where the Doctor says she will get med supplies shipped from a friend "Eron" from San Fran, which is where the game takes place.  The events in the game had us shipping med supplies to Defiance!  Very cool concept.  The show is typical SciFy...It reminds me of TerraNova with aliens rather than dinosaurs... either way I am enjoying both the show and game. 

 

Some things are coming to the game that are in the show such as being able to play a Castithan (the albino people) letting you use a charge blade, and supposedly the DLC will eventually open 5-7 other races, tons of weapons and vehicles as wel;l as being able to fight the Volge (attackers in pilot episode).  The game is borderlands meets Rift (Trion made rift as well as defiance game).  The game is fun but can get a little old, the leveling system makes no sense. 

 

Anyone playing on XBOX feel free to add me WinkWink531 join me in game.

  • 67 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a
    4. 4. Why do you want to add an optic?


      • Looks cool/tactical or someone told me I should
      • Need it for deteriorating eyesight.
      • To compete in certain gun games (USPSA Carry Optics)
      • Other Reasons

    • It appears that their restrictions to NJ have been removed. 
    • So is this another option? https://franklinarmory.com/franklin-armory-xo-26-r2/  
    • I didnt hear what ever came of that... I believe word on the street is some CT cops and an ATF agent got together and went rouge...  but here is another  story.  https://www.tngunowners.com/forums/topic/108864-atf-prosecution-for-pistol-as-sbr/page/2/  
    • What a country, huh?  Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it?  God bless America.  
    • @Sniper You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment.  From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for.  I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted. In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank.  That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.  I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments.  Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make.  It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides. Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently.  So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices.  Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country.  We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith. That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy.  Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate.  Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch. So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for?  You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions.  But ideally, to do so respectfully.  AVB-AMG
