    "The characters on the show can reference players"
    So if you name your character like a tard your not getting into the show.
    "THANK GOD! Bustah099780 SAVED US!" is never going to happen.

    I stopped watching SciFi when decided 6 episode seasons were the way to go. If they are that horrible at television programming, how good could they be at a friggin mmo.

    SyFy is a god awful channel. I wouldn't touch any of their original products.

    Wasn't this originally the behind the Stargate MMO?

    Honesty, with the kind of focus Sci-Fi (er, sorry SyFy) puts on their programming these days, I don't have much hope for a decent MMO game to emerge from them...let along a game that ties-in to a show. What will players be fighting in the PvE? Hordes of Mansquitos? ;-P

    This guy needs to lay off the coke. Game seems interesting, though.

    Just like Avatar, I don't really care if there is a show tied to this game. If you gave me wow and said, okay we're gonna make this kickass show that revolves around what YOU the players do in the game, Id be like SWEET. But starting from the ground up like this always sacrifices gameplay, and it's become so much of a standard for these things that I feel 100% safe saying the game will be mediocre with a slight gimmick. Plus there's the fact that the game can't possibly be dynamic enough that you can actually CREATE story, it will just be picking and choosing between version A and B really. IEThey won't make a new faction in the show based on a new guild

    Too bad really, knowing this is most likely a waste of time and resources from the start, but maybe I'm just a cynic, but I ALWAYS want my game first, and anything else second.

    this makes the show sound like its going to be just a very large live action cut scene. kinda like the ones in commander and conquer except even less serious
