Defiance Is A Telly Program Too

MULTIMEDIA CROSSOVER ALERT. It's like Skylanders this, but with more alien death and bionic irises. Trion's Defiance is currently best-known as a sci-fi MMO, but it's also going to be a TV show on the atrociously named Syfy channel. I believe this is a glimpse at what that will look like: a Starship Troopersy affair (visually - I doubt the satire will be in there, somehow) deliberately made to look very similar to the game.

So yeah. Compare and contrast with in-game explodeybangs:

Similar, but more colourful (i.e. not grey-blue throughout) and with that distinctively MMO character animation where everyone looks like a speeded-up marionette with cut strings.

The whole Defiance circus kicks off later this year, but beta things are already happening.
