  • For those of you that do not know, Syfy has teamed up with Trion Worlds to create something truly unique. It is called Defiance. Defiance is a TV series and it is also a MMO shooter game. Events that happen in the tv series will affect the game and events in the game will affect the tv series.

    First lets look at the show:


It already has my interest. It looks good, has potential.. and now look at this quote from an announcement made back on 05/21/2012 with some info on the impressive group of people that are working on this project:


Syfy and Trion Worlds are thrilled to announce that production on the Defiance™ pilot episode commences today. Combining a star-studded cast with an elite production team, this groundbreaking transmedia experience is poised to unite TV and massively multiplayer online gaming for the very first time.

Defiance stars Grant Bowler (True Blood), Julie Benz (Dexter), Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13), Tony Curran (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Blade II), Stephanie Leonidas (Mirrormask,BBC’s Dracula), and Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves), plus recent additions Mia Kirshner (Not Another Teen Movie, 24) and Fionnula Flanagan (Lost) as fascinating characters whom you’ll get to meet in the game.

Defiance also reunites much of the Battlestar Galactica production team, including visual effects supervisor Gary Hutzel (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica), composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica), and writers David Weddle and Bradley Thompson (Falling Skies,Battlestar Galactica). Rounding out the team are language and culture consultant David J. Peterson (Game of Thrones) and three-time Oscar-winning costume supervisor Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland, Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Edward Scissorhands).

The landmark pilot is directed by Scott Stewart (Legion, Priest) and written/executive produced by Rockne O’Bannon (Farscape), Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica, Hellcats) & Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica). Kevin Murphy serves as showrunner.

That sounds like a great combination of talent and now my expectations are pretty high.

Now lets look at the game:

It looks like a mix of Borderlands with Resident Evil's 3rd person perspective. Could be good. I'll have to sign up for the beta.

Defiance is set to premiere Monday, April 15, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. on the Syfy channel. Defiance the game will be released April 2013 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

I'm thinking either would probably survive on their own. I'm actually more interested in the show than the game. Theres hardly any sci-fi series out any more. Eureka and Sanctuary both ended and I've been craving a good sci-fi show. :)

You haven't watched Falling Skies?!!!!!!!! Its probably one of the best damn Sci-Fi series out there even though the first two seasons are like 8-10 episodes. I think TNT is being overly cautious that no one wants to watch a sci-fi series... or maybe Spielberg doesn't have time to make more than that for a season. The end of last season had an epic cliffhanger. I cant wait for Season 3.

I just looked it up. Season 3 is 10 episodes as well... I'm still looking forward to it tough. lol

I'm completely current on Falling Skies! I'm really looking forward to the new season. Season 1 was a bit slow but season 2 picked things up a bit.. and the cliff hanger was huge. Season 3 should be very good.


What sucks is that its only 10 eps a year! I need more scifi! Its like I'm a junkie and I need a sci-fi fix. I watch crappy b-movies and reruns of Star Trek TNG just to settle my cravings sometimes. XD

      Looks like my weekend will be nothing but shoveling.  10-20 inches minimum Saturday night through Sunday. With a high of 12 degrees.. but the worst part is we're supposed to have high winds. fml.. that will make it have a windchill temp in the negatives all day and drifting snow banks of 1-2 feet everywhere.

      I finished Fate/Zero and I'm into season two of Fate/Stay. I really hate how Saber keeps getting screwed over. She's such a nice and honorable character. :( I'm waiting for her overdue redemption.

      So after counting the cash and gift cards I got for my birthday in Oct and for Christmas I finally just broke down and ordered a Switch today all because I want the new Smash Brothers (damn you Nintendo, why do you do this to me. You know I have an obsession with SSB).
      So yeah, I now get to start the journey of being a Switch owner (I just wish it didn't cost so much freaking money x.x).
