No, not at all. By climate, I assume you mean massive scale battles with like 500 vs 500 players with vehicles and shooty lasers everywhere. No, Defiance does have "massive" battles but it's all coop (unless you play PvP but that's much smaller scale, like 8v8) focused to take out the ArkFalls and bug bugs. There are also vehicles, but except for your OWN vehicle that you get to move around faster, there are no tanks or flying vehicles etc. Not that I've seen so far yet (Ego lvl 78 btw, whatever that means lol)

And yeah, I'm liking the game so far. It's obviously not a finished product sadly, but the combat is fun and feels pretty damn good to me. I like the voice work (for most of the characters that is) and the story while kinda cliche seems decent enough. I am looking forward to how they connect the game and tv show, though I'm gonna guess it's just a periphery type thing.

I *think* every ten EGO levels are like normal ones, since you get a power upgrade every ten afaict, but it's not an exact translation.

And from what I know more episodic missions will be released after every episode of the show. I also heard the players will affect the show too, but I don't really know how.

I haven't heard the greatest things about this game thus far, and at least the initial quests are all basic "go here, stare at item while holding ("X", "E", what have you) for a few second and kill a few mobs" complete, rinse, repeat. :/

It's a shooter. That's about all you can expect out of a shooter. The coop play, non quest events and storyline set it apart, and I'm definately enjoying it more than most of the stuff I've played lately.

Anyway, http://community.def...ferent-results/

Huge client patch coming – Client patches are very risky to deploy so we employ a more rigorous testing process before we distribute them. We can very easily revert a server patch. Depending on testing and certification, we should see that around the 15th, hopefully sooner, possibly later. It currently has 8 pages of patch notes, listing fixes and improvements.

8 pages? Yikes.

Got this game for free due to the friend I share PSN accounts with buying it on his and letting me download it :)
I'm actually enjoying this game.
The graphics are dated, there are bugs and other issues that plague it... But it is still really enjoyable. I wouldn't say this is the best of certain games, but it does borrow from a lot. It feels a lot like if Fallout 3 and Borderlands had a redheaded step child :p
But the game itself is very fluid and well done. Eager to now see the TV show because of this, and I hope that both do well.
I'm playing on PS3 and already started a clan with my friend. So if anyone plays it on there, hit me up. PSN: PeanutTown

Okay - silly-sounding question.

I know that one of the dangers are those Mega-Crabs found near some Arkfalls. What I'd really like to know is - is their meat *edible*?

(The question needs answering, for several reasons - the Mega-Crabs, as far as I am aware, are NOT sentient; however, they are a threat. More often than not, what is trying to eat you, IS, more likely than not, edible to some degree itself (examples: lion, most poisonous reptiles and even poisonous FISH, sharks), and, due to their sheer size, even just one MC could feed several Arkhunter parties. So why NOT have missions to hunt them as a food source?)

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this question will never be answered.

But just as a guess, when you've got a thing that takes expensive weaponry to hunt and people often die in said hunts, I don't think it'd be worth the cost to use as a food source.

So you guys on the PC version, if you are on the NA server, my account name is lordloc, and my shooter dude is Cheeser, so feel free to add me to friends, invite me to coop stuff or pretty much anything.

I also made a toon on the EU server, but haven't gone past the tutorial area yet. Again, feel free to add me on there also if you are playing on that server :)

I'm putting a **** ton of time into this game. I just love the combat so far. Sure the skills kinda stink, but the guns and everything surrounding the combat is smooth and fun. Also, explosions.

The same could be said for hunting other predators (all of those I mentioned are dangerous, if not fatal, to man - even today). Therefore, the risk is, indeed, QUITE high - however, given the sheer amount of meat per Mega-Crab (if the critter is edible), the reward could actually match the risk. (Not to mention it would actually make policing the corpses a nice side-benefit.)

It would rather depend on how toxic they are to human/alien physiology considering they seem to be addicted to arkfall debris. Would you eat something that ingested copious amounts of toxic waste? It is mentioned in the game that there have been scientific studies of the creatures, but only passingly in a goofy sidequest (from what I've seen so far, anyway) so whether or not they've been able to study them in other situations I'm not sure.

Considering the rest of the game, a quest to hunt them for food would be horribly out of place. I'd have a hard time with the suspension of disbelief on that one.

There isn't a private chat. Chat (text) is horrible. Voice chat is horrible. Use TS, Vent, Mumble. Latest dev blog stated they were working on chat, so hopefully that will be included in the 15th patch.
