The beta for the 360 ended roughly 3 days ago. And already I miss it, and have watched countless videos on youtube. Sure the beta was buggy, and the servers were having persistant problems, but the environment, the world, it just felt right. And that's one of the major things I miss, the community on the other hand, is pretty much none existant for Xbox, virtually zero chatting what so ever.

Anyways, since I've decided to update my pre-order from Standard to Collectors, and being that I'm in NA and not EU, I won't have any delays, the first hours of my gameplay is going to be deticated to quest grinding, with bonuses to further myself. Re-create the clan, using the proper name instead of the in-beta clan title, get bonuses ontop of that, and after getting into the rolling hills and vallies full of Ranches, hit up some PvP and Arkfalls.

I never got to hit up PvP because the loadouts wouldn't allow me to bump over from Co-op to Competitive, and doing Arkfalls in the beta was pointless as the rewards system wasn't fully functioning. I mean, scrip and exp are essential yes, but wasting 30-40 minutes on the motherlode Arkfalls is just a huge time sink.

How about all you players out there, be it PC or Console, what're your first hours going to be deticated towards?

(Also on a side note, any idea wtf was with the instancing? They had some backstory behind them, but it just threw you in the mess of it, I personally believe it should be main quest accessible, as in you progress so far in the main quest, you unlock more instances, because at the end of Angel Island, I thought Captain Grant was taken, and instead it was the Lieutant, which was C. Grant's son... seriously... what the hell.)

I'm going to buy some sunglasses and take my Challanger for a spin. I'll likely just pick up the Deadbolt and go for Arkfalls for a couple hours. Let people clear out of the starting areas before I hit all the early missions myself.

First hour? Clear Mount Tam of course and head over to Iron Daemon Ranch in Madera. :)

Nah, I'll prolly run with the wave getting easy credit for missions.

I will do some missions, then kick it with my clanmates, if they happen to be online at the time. And then some side missions, not too fond of challenges. And then of course, spend some scrip and stuff.

I'll probaly start by trying to get a shadow war going in Mount tam in the beginning area for some good laughs. Then move on to trying to get where i was in the story mission in the beta while doing arkfalls and some side quests.

Simply enjoying the world of Defiance. Clearing Mount Tam, then just explore from there with friends if possible. I'll probably be role playing right out of the gate so I will need to get a chatpad or keyboard along with the game XD.

If they had a nice spiffy Chaos Space Marine suit of Armor I'd search day in and day out for it but otherwise for me, anything other than the default stuff looks good to me.
