I was wondering if there are any 360 Defiance players who are in the Military or are a Veteran? I'm a US Army veteran, served from 2002-2005. Was thinking about setting up a guild of players in the Military or Veterans maybe. I just got the game last night and none of my Xbox live friends have it yet. It would be really cool to play with some people as I've been going solo for the first few missions. My gamertag is Riku Kurosaki15.

That's cool. British? I met quite a bit of British soldiers when I was deployed to Afghanistan. Sucks we won't be able to play though as I hear the game is region locked...:(

I have a question for any serving, or ex-serving, military personnel. A bit OT, but it's something I'm interested in.

It's clear that many people involved with the military enjoy playing military-esque games, or at least games featuring gun-based violence. All good.

But do some games rub you up the wrong way? How do you feel about real combat you've been in, and a game trying to emulate that? Are games for blowing off steam more than any realistic experience? How about how some games fetishise guns and violence?

For me, as a non-military man, I'm interested in the very real, very dangerous, very possibly fatal world of combat, and the gameified, sanitised, at times glorifying, world of games.

Sorry for the OT :)

I don't really get bothered by it that much because I was lucky I didn't see a lot of combat when I was in Afghanistan. I was a 13B, cannon crewmember and when I was over there we were using mortars so we usually just did long range combat. Some Military-esque games I don't really care for like some of the Call of Duty games as they've gotten repetitive over the years. I really enjoy the Mass Effect series as the story is engrossing and draws you in.
