    Just wanted to see how many other RJers are playing this game or plan to watch the show. So far I think the game is great, picked it up for the 360. There is a bunch of first week hiccups with the game, over loaded servers, major lag issues. But besides that it's pretty fun. Probably might check out the show when it hits too.

    Glad you are enjoying it! I work for Trion Worlds so I hope more people give it a go and like it. Our dev team is working hard to get a lot of the problems fixed, but these aren't any problems that you don't see the first week of any MMO. XB360 is our most popular platform (it's more than double the PS3 or PC) and unfortunately it's the platform that is suffering from the most server issues right now. Be sure to check out the daily blog of our Executive Producer on updates on what bugs the team is working to squash.

    I've seen the pilot of the show as well. It's pretty good. I can't say that I'm madly in love like I was BSG, but it's better than most of the series on Syfy, which I realize isn't saying a lot. But it's good. If nothing else, watch the pilot because Grant Bowler is shirtless in it. icon_smile.gif

    Nice, well I'm trying to get a bunch of my gamer friends on the game right now. So far the ones I got to pick up the game are enjoying it too. The problems the 360 is suffering right now don't really bother me, it happened with the Battlefield series during their first weeks, so these problems aren't major for me. I'm really having fun with it so far, no major complaints about the game on this end yet.

    Did you pre-order the game? I can give you a code for some goodies, but I don't want to give you a duplicate.

    Lol no... I didn't know about the game till Xbox advertised it on their dashboard a couple days before release. Spent the whole day hunting down the game before I finally found it because I didn't pre order it. icon_confused.gif

    The TV series looks cool. I remember reading about it a while back and had forgotten about it. I'll definitely be checking this one out.

    It's about time the SyFy channel produced another actual sci-fi show... lately they've been all about reality TV and re-branding the network to a broader audience.

    I'm pretty eager to watch it. I hope it starts out as good as BATTLESTAR without crashing and burning like BATTLESTAR.
    The FACE OFF challenge on this show was also intertesting.

    So what did people think of the pilot? I watched it and really wasn't particularly excited about it. Some of it reminded me of Terra Nova. Don't plan on watching it. Grant Bowler looked great in it,though.

    On another note, just saw the movie Oblivion in a sneek preview. I know it's been released Overseas but opens on April 19th in the U.S.

    It looked FANTASTIC, especially in IMAX, and I enjoyed the film, even though it is a mish mash of several movies, with Matrix being the most obvious. Many scenes were referencing other SF movies (2001, Star Wars, Total Recall being the most obvious)

    I actually enjoyed the show, but then again I'm easily entertained. And my other friends who play the Defiance game also enjoyed the show. I think it's cool how they're trying to make the game and the show an interactive media. I think if you play the game you might appreciate the show a little more. They have Episodic missions that tie into the shows story. For instance the crystal that Nolan and Irisa had at the beginning of the show was gained during a mission where you work with them in the game. The game is still awesome, icon_smile.gif and hopefully the show does well. icon_smile.gif

    So is anyone else getting into this show? The second episode was much better than the season premiere. And if you play the videogames... FINALLY the hellbugs are showing up in episode 3.
