|Defiance - a Syfy Original Series. Mondays at 9/8 Central|
The very first thing I want to say is: If you like science fiction adventure, if you enjoyed Babylon 5, or Battlestar Galactica, even Star Wars or other science fiction of the sort - then this is the show for you. I don't compare this series to Star Trek - albeit a legend - I find Star Trek to be the clean cut older brother of Scifi, not the glitzy down and dirty science fiction that these show/movies posses.
I did say this was revolutionary didn't I? Science fiction is science fiction, correct? What makes this so special? If you are versed in the gaming world, then you may already know. This will be the first time in history that a television show and an MMO game are released in tandem (not one before the other, and not one about the other)
|Defiance, the show by Syfy channel and the game by Trion Worlds|
I digress - here is what make this so intriguing. While the show is based out of what used to be St. Louis (see the busted up arch), the game is based in what used to be San Francisco (I am sure you recognize that bridge); but the gaming world is persistent - and has the potential to affect the show, or be affected by the show.
|Defiance, where the game meets the show|
Syfy Channel has dedicated a page describing where Defiance the Game meets Defiance the Show including some stuff you have already run into on the show, which is the celebration of Armistice Festival and the feared Volge. The potential is huge, and I can't wait to see the ways in which they get these two mediums to work together.
So if you are a fan of science fiction adventure, make sure you check out the show on the Syfy Channel tonight at 9/8 Central. Gamers pick up the game where you normally do or find it at Trion Worlds. A little off-topic, but Trion Worlds is the same group that make one of my favorite games, Rift. They are one of the few companies out there there understand the gaming world from the gamer's point of view as opposed to the corporate point of view.
