EDF! EDF!

Earth Defense Force is a game where you shoot giant bugs and aliens and sometimes robots. There have been at least six games in the series, they're budget titles, and they're great. They've got a sense of scale that I haven't seen another game match, both in terms of the size of the enemies and the number of them. They're mindless, gloriously stupid fun, and I just got 2025 for the 360 yesterday. I spent most of my time shooting endless grenades and missiles into piles of giant spiders, it was great. I will be playing the crap out of it. You should too!

    Does it have online multiplayer?

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    The newest one, 2025 on last gen consoles and 4.1 on PS4, sure does! It's also one of the best couch co-op games you'll find, my brother and I had an excellent time plowing through 2017.

    Is pretty much all I know of the series. It's pretty great.

    Yes, you and everyone else. You owe it to yourself.

    Get it for me, @Peen

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    You get it for you, it won't mean as much if I get it for you.

    Also I want to like Wing Divers more but all of the guns tie into the flight power and how does that make any sense? I don't care if they'd be overpowered, being awesome and stupid is the whole point of the game.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    How much is it?

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    $45 used for the PS4 one, $12 clearance at Target for the 360 one, check your endcaps!

    $45 Dollarydoos!

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    You can't put a price on this kind of fun Raijin, it's nearly infinite.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    Think I'll keep an eye out for it to go on sale on PSN.

    Are we friends, Peen?

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    I ain't even have a PS4, I'm living that Microsoft life.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    Yeah but... Are we friends? You know... Pals?

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    Yeah sure, if you didn't live in outer coldlandia we'd probably hang.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    Ok. Good.

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    This game is legitimately stressful. I was rolling along pretty ok, just farting around with grenade launchers and missiles and then I hit level 10 and when the city is pretty crowded and crawling with bugs from all sides you really do get overrun and it feels nuts. On normal you're probably not in too much danger but man it gets your heart rate up.

    A newwwww EDF? Can anything match 2017? Insect Armageddon (right?) was kinda shitty, but I loved the core game play.

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    It's better in every way, including kaiju/robutt type fights!
