    Rift and defiance

    Ok, so I got a new laptop and started playing rift. For those who haven't played it, defiance is pathetic compared to rift. The player progression is huge! The loot is awesome! Hell the public events are freaking awesome! Enemies are hard no matter what but definatetly not impossible. I m shocked that trion made both defiance and rift. Rift is most certainly my new favorite. It's sad defiance isn't more like this. Also I saw hellbugs in rift and was like omfg this is so much better than defiance !

    Rift? No thanks. I'll sooner stick with playing DCUO on the PS3. Defiance is my DCUO "down-time" game of choice.

    Except that Defiance's shooter gameplay ****s all over that boring tab-to-target hotbar faceroll-fest.

    And LOL at RIFT's "progression." You mean a completely arbitrary gear grind perpetuated by skinner box content lifted directly from WoW?

    Yeah, pass.

    Have you tried rift yet? Not sure which game your referring to, I haven't looked at ps3 games in years.

    Yes most of it is similar to wow, but free. Free gets my vote

    Nope, never played Rift. And given what I have experienced from Trion thus far, I'm not ready to make that leap so fast. I'll just stick with DCUO being my main MMO of choice, thankyaverymuch.

    You are comparing "warm" to "soft." This is a completely different things.
    Don’t hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I don’t need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    I gave it a chance to see what my laptop could push as the first game, expected to delete it after a hour.... Well after 7 hours staying up till 4am it's exciting to see they were on their game for rift.

    Rift is an MMORPG playable on the PC pnly, Defiance is a shooter designed for consoles and ported to the PC. I'm suprised that you are suprised that they are quite different.

    I tried Rift when it came out, used the trial of course. Played maybe an hour or so to test the waters. At the time it felt kinda like WoW (which I played a lot then), but washed out and boring as **** lore-wise.

    After it became free recently I tried it again, and couldn't get myself to get out of the starting area... It's painful to do the whole tab or click-targeting and hotkey dance... I don't even play WoW for that reason anymore.

    I'd rather play GW2 instead, even though it suffers from the same boring lore and world, it makes at least some effort to make combat more interesting. Hell, I'd play Terra sooner, grindfest and all, if I cared about asian-made mmo's at all.

    I've played Defiance to 5k completion (only the last time-based PvP pursuit and the one to buy items with pvp rep. remain).

    Here's a tip for the future: opinions are like rectal sphincters, everybody has one, and many are filled with the usual matter that accumulates there; don't assume that everyone has the same opinions about a game you consider superior.
